One of the thousands of tools for health is: HAVE GRATITUDE.
Feeling gratitude while eating and drinking can aid with digestion, and much more.
We love the foods that taste so delicious and also take care of the body well.
My Breakfast was greens drink. 1 teaspoon raw dried greens and water. Suited for on-the-go type lifestyle.
When we are grateful we are grounded. Activate gratitude.
Just remember "I CAN" when you think you can't. I CAN is a great affirmation. Related artwork at Inner Circle, Venice Beach.
We are all one! - eat whole foods.
Next was LUNCH!!! I can I can I can! Cafe gratitude in Venice Beach is amazing.
Started with beet juice...
..... And yam fries!!!!! Delicious.
Next was the most amazing Baked quinoa pasta - gluten free! Tastes amazing. "Health is easy when pasta tastes like this!" Perfect for a Californian Fall. With nut cheese and fresh herbs.
And of course I had a herbal tea - aids digestion of raw desserts like these. And adds more antioxidants to the meal.
Dinner was water! Grateful for the amazing beautiful clean and nutritious foods that my body received today!
I replied to emails for 2.5 hours. And then I studied google calendar to learn new organization skills and plan the week ahead! 9 days to book launch and the Earth Diet global book tour begins!!! Looking forward to all the wonderful amazing delicious and so nutritious foods I get to enjoy tomorrow. Grateful for that and excited to wake up and eat such deliciousness.
Good night! :) Love Liana !

Today I had a live blood test to check the state of my health. Last time I had blood checked was in 2009 when I was really sick with disorderly eating, pre-cancerous tumor and digestive issues. My blood back then represented sickness, low immunity, verge of leukemia, parasites... And now it is "beautiful blood" that is healthy and perfect no sign of disease of illness. Some cells did show dehydration though which shows me to up my intake of water and also greens. Very happy with the results.Talk about health transformation!
For breakfast I had a Phresh greens drink.
Lunch was a beet juice from Mothers Market New York. Really beet! With cucumber and celery as a base, and parsley. Super cleansing.
Had fun buying these amazing snacks from Mothers market. This was afternoon meal.
Also enjoyed some coconut milk ice cream! Chocolate peanut butter!
I was so grateful to spend the later afternoon in nature - with a beautiful blue sky and sun shining! Hiked for 4 hours to the Top Of The World in Laguna beach!
Was a treat to exercise for 4 hours in nature!
Dinner was Mediterranean - rice with vegetables, organic chicken and salad.
Drank lots of water today!

I have been traveling the past couple days - no normal routine - and I have to make health work - it's a must. My travel tip is just do the best you can with what you have.
I started Tuesday with a beet juice. No filter here just a vibrant color. Beets with pineapple, grapefruit, orange and mint. Vitamin C booster. This is a great one for traveling, and in 5 minutes you have had your meal - plus instant cellular nutrition!
I picked up some travel snacks - organic pistachios and macadamia nuts, and coconut milk chocolate peanut butter ice cream!
Dinner was a kale salad!
I also drank lots of water, including a lemon water.
Today I started with a smoothie. Another great travel meal.
Later at the airport - check out all these healthy snacks! It's amazing to see organic and non-Gmo!
I picked up some pineapple, grapes and a pure bar! The fruit is not organic at all, but the most whole thing they had there.
This can be eating while you walk - travel tip!
When I arrived in California later that evening I had a green juice from Mothers Market. Parsley, cilantro, kale, cucumber and celery.
Later I had a mint Nibmor chocolate and a That's It bar with two ingredients: apple and cherry.
Had dinner at a Mediteradian restaurant which was organic and hormone free. This was rice, grilled chicken and salad. And green tea. I ate this entire plate.
13 days to book launch!

Daily lesson: your body will go a lot further and you will have a lot more energy to be productive if you eat antioxidants which can include desserts that are natural! Rather than eating quick sugars like candy, cakes and cookies. Those will make you crash. Unless its a raw cookie dough ball made with almonds ;) ! That's another story!
My eating habits today reflected a really busy work day!
I started the day with with a big glass of alkaline water and drank lots of it throughout the day.
Was not hungry at breakfast so did not eat - just had extra water and extra breaths!
For lunch I was craving the antidepressant and antioxidant qualifies of cashews! So I made cashew ice cream bites with chocolate sauce (recipe in new book cacao powder, maple syrup and coconut oil).
For dinner I had a huge cup of Phresh Greens: kale, spinach, parsley, collardgreens, wheat grass... More greens.
If anyone thinks I didn't eat enough today look at how much I ate yesterday / plus remember our bodies go through cycles and different cravings for certain nutrients. Based on what I ate today I will probably be craving a salad tomorrow!
15 days to book launch! Lots of emails to reply to and lots of antioxidants to keep me going!

Today's lesson: chew really well! Chewing properly and enjoying the entire process of eating the meal can help with graceful digestion.
I slept in until noon - felt extremely refreshed. Started the day with a big cup of alkaline water.
Next I had my superfood smoothie recipe in the new book; strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, alkaline water as a base. And added maca powder, hemp seeds, almonds, morringa, cacao powder and honey comb.
I walked outside in nature 30 minutes the air is fresh, the sky was nice blue today.
Lunch was a bowl of oats with coconut sugar. Porridge in Fall... Mmm.
Dinner was this huge bowl of peas with organic free range chicken. I had a meat eaters day.
16 days to book launch. Love Liana

Today started with a health coaching call with one of my excited clients who just discovered the power of magnesium. Really cool. She writes a daily blog www.theearthdietblogs.com/debbieSavesHerLife
When we are deficient with magnesium we can find it hard to relax and lose weight. We are often stressed and anxious. Magnesium relaxes our body and makes us feel so so good. When we are nourished with magnesium we can sleep like a baby! Foods that include magnesium are cacao powder (raw chocolate), Brazil nuts, dark leafy greens like kale, pumpkin seeds, cashews, flaxseeds, fish for meat eaters, bananas and strawberries. If you wonder why you crave chocolate so much - you could be craving the magnesium and that feel good sensation.
I had a huge glass of alkaline water - I said thank you and appreciated clean beautiful water.
Then had back to back coaching another client who is treating her MS. When treating MS eat a lot of foods with amino acids like quinoa, peanuts, Brazil nuts and eggs and fish for meat eaters. And lots of water! My client is on a total health plan for it that incorporates much more.
Then I made my usual superfood smoothie!
After that I had a couple tablespoons of hemps seeds for some protein.
Then I had some meetings and later went to NY Hair Co to get my hair done organically ;) event tomorrow - the Navel Walk in Huntington.
It's amazing how we can live in a modern world and be able to live a natural lifestyle.
I was so happy to spot this sunflower in NYC! Because its fall but it has been so beautiful and sunny.
Dinner was green juice from Juice Generation. Pure energy and medicine I love it.
Second dinner was lemon rice with peanuts in Central Park. Magical.
Dessert treas from Westerly market! Rice milk ice cream and Noah's Raw Chocolate! I ate the ice cream and was fulfilled so saving the chocolate for tomorrow!
My second dessert was grapefruit juice! 60% vitamin C.
18 days to book launch!
Feeling happy. Love Liana
