Journal Opportunity – Food As Ally

Which breakfast choices give you natural energy to start the day?

As you answer, check in with each body.

What does your mental body need to get going in the morning?

What does your physical body need?

How about the emotional?

The spiritual?

Observation is a big part of making food your ally. Gentle reminder: observation is not judgment. Focus on awareness. Let the insights come. Here’s an example of the difference: if you’re thinking, “I should get a juicer,” that’s most likely judgment. If you’re focusing on allowing your bodies to speak to you, a juicer could gently pop into your mind, or one of your bodies could call out for fresh juice.

It takes practice, but with practice, you will gain perspective that reshapes your world.

Peace and love,

Gina

Easy Lunch, Dinner, or Snack – Food As Ally Meal Idea

You’ve been asking for easy meal ideas that will keep you out of a hot summer kitchen. This is one of my favorites.

Fast Nachos photo by Gina Briganti

Nachos are endlessly versatile and a great way to eat cool sour cream, fresh diced tomatoes, zesty green onions, smooth velvety guacamole, ready-made cheeze (non-dary or dairy) sauce, your choice of tortilla chips, and protein.

Added bonus, it travels well.

Bring these to work or a picnic by separating ingredients in containers. Purchased guacamole singles (pictured – Trader Joe’s Avocado’s Numbers Guacamole to Go) are perfect for one meal and will stay green. The protein of choice, next to the plant-based cheeze sauce, is grilled turkey cutlets. Coconut water is a favorite hydrating drink for hot days. Salsa Verde Corn Tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s give salsa flavor.

For a snack, make a smaller nacho plate. At lunch, add more food to fill you until snack or dinner. If it’s dinner time, load up the table so everyone can add what they for Nacho Bar.

What do you think? Is this easy, fast, and customizable for your life?

Hormones and exercise

Sanchi Says Lifestyle

Hello everybody! Welcome back to my blog. The purpose of this blog is to help people find their way to a healthier lifestyle. I mostly talk about exercise, nutrition and the science behind them, which are my areas of expertise, but I also talk about sleeping habits, minimalism and many other subjects related to wellbeing and healthy lifestyle.

Today’s subject is one of my favourites. When I was back at uni I didn’t like it very much, I found it very complicated. I guess back then there was too much to take in, so many subjects to study at the same time, and I didn’t realise how beautiful and interesting hormones are.

Cortisol hormone

As I kept learning more about physiology and specifically exercise physiology, that passion about hormones grew on me. Not only are they important, essential substances in our body, but they’re also key for many physical and…

FAQ’s

There’s plenty of emphasis on the weekly Reiki Food As Ally Group Support Zoom meetings and the Food As Ally in-person weekly group support meetings in Dallas, which raises the question of whether I still offer Reiki sessions and classes. I offer them as well as workshops on techniques in the Reiki III (ART) Manual.

Thank you to those who asked the questions. I’m glad you know I’m still here for you regarding Reiki, pet Reiki, and Reiki Food As Ally.

Gratitude Journal Opportunity for Your Food As Ally Step 1

Graphic by Gina Briganti

To know where you are, where you’ve been, and where you intend to go in your relationship with food, a journal is recommended in step 1 of the program.

We have a history with food, personally and collectively. Today I’m asking you to appreciate the good times, the wins that brought you to where you are today.

Not knowing where our relationship with food is going and at the same time intending that it is going to be good is how we can love the mystery. At the same time, you recognize your fears surrounding your future, release them, and gain insight. Remember to be gentle with yourself, to observe, then let go. Don’t put yourself on trial and convict yourself.

Remember to put a date on what you write, collage, or record so you can look back. There’s lots of fun and insight later on.

Sincerely,

Gina Briganti

Certified Nutrition Consultant, founder of the Food As Ally program.

In-person group support meetings are every Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:00 CDT in Dallas, Texas and Reiki Food As Ally group support meetings are every Friday evening on Zoom from 7:00-8:00 CDT.
