“What the FODMAP?” class at Living Well 7/14

“What the FODMAP?”


Tuesday, July 14th
6:30PM – 8:00PM
Cost for class is $20, RSVP now by calling 972-930-0260
— Space is Limited! — 

Attendees will receive recipes, the How-To’s for a Gluten-Free/FODMAP living protocol, a set of the BeFree! Life Affirming Cards and a Self-Test

Join Jenny Bair as she shares “What the FODMAP?!”

No, it’s not something the young kids are saying; it’s a diet that many try when they have gone Gluten Free but still are not feeling stellar.

If you live with typical IBS symptoms, want to eat low in sugar (fructose), eat low/lactose free, lower in yeast, then this diet may be for you!

Betty Murray of Living Well has shared the science behind the diet but Jenny Bair, MHE, of Living Well Dallas is going to help you logistically get your head around it and spell out the how-to’s for the everyday living.

She’ll share her top ten list of products that she uses as go-to’s, she’ll give you a summer meal and some snack recipes to take home with you, and just give you hope for feeling better and better each day.

Jenny is an expert in how to make lasting changes in your life and she loves navigating the unseen space in between your ears to figure out how to “Work with yourself and not against yourself.”

So, get yourself and your friends to this class. You’ll leave with a refreshed sense of enthusiasm of why you make all of the efforts to live the way you do with wonderful pay-off’s.

You’ll also get to  taste test sample some of the snackie type recipes in her new “What the FODMAP?” cookbook and she will keep you entertained as she is known for her honesty, interaction and  “life stand-up comedy” rolled into her speaking and teaching.

Be Free Spirited Living

“I refresh my mind, body and spirit by taking a walk in the sunshine.”

From Jenny Bair:

I designed this Be Free! system starting with the Life Affirming Cards of 52 Weeks/365 Days to give people support for living life with some grace, ease, humor and fun using positive affirmations with A-C-T-I-O-N oriented tips and techniques on the back of re-usable card secured with an open clasp ring.  Over 90% of visits to the doctor can be boiled down to too much STRESS.  So, what are most people seeking in their personal and professional realms? Relief from the pressures of life and too much work, tactics to relax, strategies to connect with others in a simple, easy way that doesn’t take too much effort or thought beyond the already over extended To-Do list. The Be Free – Ignite Your Life System can help you reach your goals in the well-being related areas of your life such as: Physical, Social, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, Organizational, Cooking, Sensuality, Life Admin and Creativity & Fun.   There are several ways to capture the Be Free message each week.  You can use the system by yourself weekly and or daily by using the cards as a visual cue to create some “space” mentally each week within the presented topic.  Utilize the private Be Free social media group to gain some community support.  Engage in one on one coaching in person at Living Well Dallas, by phone or Skype.  Any combo of the above. Even though the cards say gluten free living; this program applies to any person living a busy lifestyle.  Many of our clients like to also engage in detoxing their bodies too by using the Cleanse book, written by Betty Murray, the co-author of Be Free cards and my business partner.

So, the bottom line is to seek support at the level in which you need it and the best way it fits into your day.  So, my encouragement is to watch the weekly video (on Facebook) and review the Be Free weekly tips to help keep a focus on your mind for the week. Use what works; leave the rest behind. I have the motto with my clients, “Work with yourself and not against yourself.” I hope you have a great week!

 

 

 So, Step 1: Watch the video on Facebook — www.facebook.com/livingwelldallas/videos/10153901645462892/?hc_location=ufi

Step 2:  Read over these quickie life ideas to see what might work for you

Step 3:  Try one or more of the ideas on for size and see what happens to your mood, your interactions with others and how you feel about yourself & goal at the end of the week

 

Some ideas to try for this week’s concept:

-Take a walk of 20 minutes or more to increase your brain neurotransmitters and your Vitamin D levels

-Color for 20 minutes in a coloring book or a mandala book to increase better mood and decision making abilities

-Create art for 20 minutes or more

-Decide on your shifts during the day and how you will implement short breaks to refresh, get grounded, relieve stress throughout the day in 5-15 minute increments

 

If you are ready to get started to Ignite Your Life by Being Free, then contact our office to purchase your set of cards at $17.99 or the Be Free-Cleanse Combo at $24.99 or start coaching to get some guidance for life, love and your career to point you in the direction of your dreams and goals. To work with Ms. Bair, MHE, COO, contact our office at 972-930-0260.  See more on our website at: www.livingwelldallas.com.  I’ll see you next week.

Holiday Quinoa Stuffing

HOLIDAY QUINOA STUFFING

by Betty Murray

Quinoa:

  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 ½ cups quinoa

About 4 cups veggie or chicken stock, warmed 

Stuffing:

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 large onion, medium dice
  • 2 carrots, medium dice
  • 2 celery stalks, medium dice
  • 2 cups smoked gluten-free sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup flax seed
  • 2 cups mushrooms, medium dice
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa (recipe follows)
  • 4 cups dried bread (I like Local Oven or Whole Foods croutons), large dice
  • ¼ cup fresh thyme, picked

Method:
For quinoa:
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Gently sweat onions until translucent. Add quinoa and toast slightly for about a minute. Add ½ cup seasoned stock and simmer until quinoa absorbs the liquid. Keep adding stock a little at a time until the quinoa grain opens. When it opens, a small tail-like pistol will pop out. It should be tender to the bite. Remove quinoa from pot and cool on sheet tray. Check seasonings and adjust if necessary. If the stock was well seasoned, the quinoa should not need any further seasoning.

For stuffing:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Heat olive oil in large pot over medium heat. Sweat garlic, onions, carrots, celery and tofu until tender. Season with a pinch of salt. Add cooked quinoa, bread cubes, and thyme; toss to bind. Add stock to moisten to liking. Transfer to baking dish and bake, uncovered for 45 minutes.
