Dear Friends,
 

Happy New Year! I hope all of you had a wonderful and safe holiday season! This year let’s all experience more love. Love is all there is in this experience! If you want to experience more love, you must start loving yourself more. First, you have to love your body and your inner self. Make a clear commitment, that for the next twelve months, you will honor yourself,  and acknowledge every relationship you are in, from your significant other to your co-workers. How will you do this? That is your choice. Be creative: Let the light shine through the loving-kindness of your words, your smiles, your hugs, and your love.

Make 2022 a great year!
 

Love and appreciation,
Gary

Love transcends material boundaries and is immanent in all life. Love is the highest of all virtues and is the power of transformation. Love is more than a word. Love is the power of creation. Love is demonstrated through loving words and loving actions.

LOVE DISSOLVES ALL BARRIERS

 
Love is the foundation of memories upon which we build lives of completion and splendor. When we act with love, the only thing visible is our beauty. When we love others, the only thing visible is their beauty. Conversely, by holding tightly to anything other than the expression of the Divine within us, we are attempting to smother the spiritual source of life with mere material attachments. Ultimately the most empowering path for life’s journey comes by committing to act with love always.

 



THE EXERCISE FOR LOVE

 
Activating Daily Love 

It is important to be clear that love is much more than feelings of affection. Begin each day, and interact with everyone from the viewpoint of unconditional acceptance. Make a daily decision to offer them love, and to create a space of calmness rooted in love for them. Take small steps every day to express both affection and respect for everyone.

Secrets to Healthier Skin
 
What’s the secret to keeping your skin looking and feeling great? Contrary to what a host of product ads on TV and in magazines tell us, expensive creams and surgeries shouldn’t be our go-to solutions. There’s a lot more to taking great care of our skin than buying the most expensive product, including dietary choices, supplements, exercise, and other choices. In fact, there are plenty of effective and natural skincare techniques you can do right in the comfort of your home.

First Thing's First: Collagen!
Hands down, the best nutrient for your skin is collagen, which is a type of protein that forms the structural foundation of bone, muscle, joint cartilage and, of course, skin. As we age, our collagen levels decrease. Studies show that you can give your collagen levels a boost by taking a clean source of marine collagen daily, together with natural support ingredients to improve your body’s production and preservation of skin collagen. The daily skin collagen support supplement can improve both the appearance and overall health of aging skin.

Remove Dead Skin
Our skin cells are constantly turning over; almost like a snake shedding its outer layer of dead skin for a shinier and healthier one. Exfoliating is an easy thing you can do at home to improve this process.
Exfoliation means gently scrubbing away the top layer of dead skin cells. It sounds painful, but it really isn’t at all. In fact, it feels really good. It usually involves a scrub brush or cream that you can buy at any local store. Studies show that this can help to boost skin health and appearance. Be sure to gently scrub away the dead skin. It’s better to use gentle pressure over a longer duration than hard pressure, as this may damage the skin. 

Use a Moisturizer
After you wash and exfoliate your skin, be sure to use a moisturizer. Find a facial-focused moisturizer to use after washing your face, but don’t worry... it does not have to be expensive. It just needs clean, natural ingredients (daytime creams should be SPF-based). Studies show that moisturizers play a number of roles for skin health including providing anti-inflammatory, antimitotic (prevents cellular breakdown/division), and antipruritic (prevents itching) benefits.

Protect Your Skin from the Sun
As much as you might love the sun, your skin does not. Sun damage is the leading cause of skin cancer and premature aging.  What can you do to protect yourself from cancer and look older? Use an SPF-based moisturizer. Most experts recommend a lotion containing 30 SPF. Stick to this, even If you don’t get outside during peak hours. Do make sure to read the labels though. Your sunscreen/moisturizer should include natural ingredients and not the toxic chemicals that are found in a lot of cosmetics.

Eat More Natural, Whole Foods
You might be tired of hearing this from nutritionists, but we keep saying it because it’s true! Your diet plays a key role in how you look and feel. If you’re not happy with how your skin looks now, then your diet could be a major culprit.

I recommend following an anti-inflammatory diet, which cuts out the most common culprits that cause inflammation such as the following:
  • Sugar
  • Processed carbohydrates 
  • Processed fats 
  • Fried foods
  • Red meat from hormone-treated animals

Instead of eating these options, focus on more natural and whole food choices such as:
 
  • Fresh Vegetables: dark leafy greens, cruciferous veggies (e.g., cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus)
  • Low-Sugar Fruits: berries, organic citrus fruits
  • Lean Proteins: pasture-raised chicken, eggs, wild-caught fish
  • Healthy Fats: coconut oil, avocados, hemp, chia, flax and pumpkin seeds

Hydrate Properly
You already know that you need to stay properly hydrated — the unofficial rule used to be 64 ounces of water per day, but now experts believe you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces every day. What you may not realize is the role hydration plays in skin health.

Studies show that your level of hydration can directly improve skin physiology. While the amount of water everyone needs varies according to their body, environment, the type of work they do, and other factors, one thing is consistent: you should listen to your body when you feel thirsty. In fact, you should be even more proactive than that. By the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated, so make it a habit to sip water throughout the day. Be sure to consume water with electrolytes and limit your consumption of coffee, tea, and sugary drinks.

Clear Your Mind
If you have a chaotic schedule (and most of us do), you may not be aware of the damage that excess stress is doing to your body, especially your skin. Too much stress releases a catabolic hormone known as cortisol. While cortisol is needed to a small extent, too much of it can cause cellular and tissue breakdown.

 

AFFIRMATIONS
 

Today, I give thanks for everything in my life.

Today, I claim dominion over my life and set a new cause in motion.

Today, I am emotionally secure and ready to face the new year.

 HEALTHY VEGAN FRENCH TOAST


Introducing the only vegan French toast recipe you’ll ever need. It’s quick (10 minutes!), simple, and yields perfectly fluffy, caramelized, eggy, custardy French toast that tastes just like the real thing!

The idea for this recipe floated into my mind after making tofu with a cornstarch coating, which browned perfectly with crispy edges. I wondered if applying a similar method would work for French toast and was thrilled when it did. The batter comes together quickly with 6 pantry staple ingredients. Then simply dip in your bread (our favorite being day-old sourdough), pan fry in a little vegan butter, and dig in! Let us show you how quick and easy it really is!

Who Invented French Toast?

Even though the name might lead you to believe French toast is…French, the research tells us it’s not that straightforward. Instead, the concept is believed to date as far back as a 1st-century Roman cookbook. And since that time, similar recipes with different names have been found in Germany, England, Italy, France, Canada, and beyond.

While French toast is traditionally made with eggs and milk, this version is plant-based yet equally delicious!

This vegan French toast batter mimics the texture of eggs with a combination of almond milk and cornstarch. Mashed banana also contributes to an eggy, custard-like texture, while maple syrup adds sweetness, and cinnamon and vanilla provide classic French toast flavor.

The batter gets its eggy flavor from the addition of black salt (also called Kala namak). Kala namak comes from Northern India and Pakistan and is recognized in Ayurvedic medicine for its health benefits source. It’s a special seasoning that has a magical eggy flavor. It’s crazy how much it really does taste like eggs! If you don’t have black salt, either order it or just use whatever salt you have on hand. It’s not absolutely essential.

Once the batter is made, it’s time to dip the bread. We’ve found that when making vegan French toast, it’s best to use sturdy bread such as rustic, day-old sourdough. It holds up better, which prevents the toast from becoming soggy.

Cook in a little vegan butter until golden brown and caramelized. Then add your favorite toppings and dig in!
