Here is a picture of the set up for the Balanced Bodies: Yoga & Nutrition Retreat. Just wanted to take a minute to list some of the items on the table. They are simple and healthy things to have on hand as your kitchen staples!
1) Coconut Oil
Make sure you have raw and unfiltered. Organic is best.
2) Vidalia Onion Chopper
I am not much into kitchen gadgets, but this one I use a ton. It totally works and I have had it for years. Cuts veggies in small pieces really fast.
3) Lemon Squeezer
Not necessary, but fun! When I have a bunch of lemons to squeeze, this really is helpful.
4) Bragg’s Amino Acids
Love this for great flavor. Has a soy sauce flavor. Ditch your regular soy sauce and replace with this REAL fermented food. Flavor is very rich and smoky, much better then the tinny, acidic flavor of soy sauce that is actually just processed soy, MSG and gluten!
5) Organic Beans
If you are going to eat cooked beans, getting organic is best. Make sure you wash and drain them before cooking with them to get rid of the most gas producing acids as you can.
Cast Iron wok is one of my staples. Makes a quick stir fry so easy. Clean up is just so simple. This wok is ALWAYS on my stove top I use it so much.
7) Green Tupperware
These babies keep veggies longer then the regular kind.
8) Sea Salt
Throw away all the white regular salt and sub in delicious and nutrient dense sea salt.
Again, buy organic.
10) Grade B Maple Syrup
The most minimally processed of the maple syrups, making it more nutrient-dense.
Can’t say it enough, this Retreat was amazing and I am so glad we did it!
