Action Steps for the Beauty Broth Hot Pot Slim Down Support Challenge
- Winter Well with a Protective Diet
- If the chill of winter has you skipping the protective veggie side of your 50/50 plate, the Beauty Broth Hot Pot is for you. This solution will not only help you drop winter weight, it will bolster your immunity through the flu season, improve your blood flow during winter’s sedentary stillness, and give your skin a healthy glow despite a lack of sunshine.
- Eating a variety of raw vegetables and fruits will strengthen your microbiome (so it keeps pathogens out) and boost nitric oxide.
- Nitric oxide is an important signaling molecule produced naturally by your body. Its critical function is vasodilation—the relaxing of the blood vessels, causing them to widen, regulating blood pressure and improving the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients.
- Low nitric oxide is associated with constricted blood flow, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cognitive decline, etc.
- Do These Four Action Steps:
|1||Protect Your Oral Microbiome Special bacteria in the mouth and nose convert nitrates to nitric oxide. Mouthwash kills these oral bacteria. Using commercial mouthwash leads to a decrease in nitric oxide production, poor vasodilation and increased blood pressure. Replace your chemical alcohol-based mouthwash with Betterment MouthwashReplace your chemical fluoride toothpaste with Supernatural Whitening ToothpasteUse natural well water or treated city water with a water filter that removes fluoride.|
|2||For 2 Months, Make and Eat a Beauty Broth Hot Pot Before Your Feast (or your largest meal)* Eating vegetables high in nitrates in combination with a healthy oral microbiome makes nitric oxide available to your body. In the presence of antioxidant and polyphenol-rich foods/beverages, nitric oxide molecules remain stable for longer. Follow the recipe and Julie-Marie’s in-class demonstration to create your favorite exciting combinations of: – A Brothy Base—PD Broth Mix is full of functional foods, like turmeric and shitake mushrooms – Protective Allium Vegetables—they reduce the risk of several types of cancer – Aromatic Roots—too much turmeric root will cause a bitter taste. Just add one grate on a microplane – Exciting Capsaicin & Piperine—these will boost bioavailability and warm it up without making it overly spicy – Sulforaphane & Nitric Oxide Producing Cruciferous Vegetables—use organic, non-irradiated leafy greens – Detoxifying Fresh Herbs—learn how to extend the shelf life of fresh parsley and cilantro with an Herb Box – Zingy, Satisfying Flavor—try a splash of brine from one of your ferments; dissolve miso in water before adding – Live Functional Food Garnishes—pile on Protective Sprouts—winter’s best vegetables! Make it Easy with Prep-Ahead Methods: pre-chop and layer broth vegetables in jars for the week. It’s so easy to throw this together with that step done. Get some Protective Sprouts going. Set-up some fermented toppings.Chew Thoroughly—nitric oxide is produced when we chew nitrate-rich vegetables, almost to a paste. Blending spinach or other leafy greens into a smoothie does not produce the same effect. *If you are underweight, focus on starches and eat your protective veggies along with them. *If you don’t want to bother with Beauty Broth, enjoy Nitric Oxide benefits with breath work.|

- Be Confident About Results on the Inside
- A thriving Oral Microbiome is your first line of defense against viruses/pathogens & allows nitric oxide production in abundance. The same microbiome exists in your nasal cavity. Conscious breath work through the nose stimulates nitric oxide production.
- Increased Nitric Oxide Production will regulate blood pressure, improving blood flow for faster delivery of oxygen & nutrients.
- Increased Immunity—nitric oxide helps immune cells communicate and react more quickly to invaders & even cancer.
- A thriving Gut Microbiome—starting your meal with the Beauty Broth Hot Pot will warm you up and tame your appetite, priming your gut microbes to enjoy a next course of raw vegetables on the coldest of days. Every raw fruit and vegetable contains a unique microbial population (unless it has been irradiated, which is radiation designed to kill all living microbes). When we eat fermented foods, sprouts, raw organic fruit, organic vegetables, or organic non-irradiated spices, we populate our bodies with the protective microbes from each food item. Healthy gut microbes produce short-chained fatty acids, which are used by the body to repair gaps in the gut lining (epithelium), preventing pathogens from entering and eliminating inflammation, food sensitivities, digestive disorders, and environmental allergies.
- Increased Metabolism is a natural result of a thriving gut microbiome and will speed up weight loss through the holidays.
- Increased Self-Awareness—starting with the Beauty Broth Hot Pot will feel soothing, nourishing, and give you a sense of control over your appetite that empowers you to be much more mindful about what to put in your mouth next.
- Excitement about Weight Loss—with the Beauty Broth Hot Pot we are adding in something exciting to assist us instead of restricting and taking something away, which never works.
- Look For Results on the Outside
- Physical Comfort, a Calming Ritual, and an Uplifting Mood due to healthy gut microbes sending happy signals to the brain.
- Excitement for the pretty layered jars in your fridge, the sprouts on your counter, the colorful vegetables fermenting, and the classy broth pot on your stove. Beat the winter blues in your Workplace for Wellness.
- Golden Glow—chewing nitrate-rich leafy greens (cooked and raw )boosts nitric oxide, increasing blood flow to the skin.
- Faster Thinking & Better Vision—vascular dementia and age-related macular degeneration are due to constricted blood flow. On a low-fat Protective Diet with boosted nitric oxide production, your blood will flow like water instead of sludge or oil.
- Better Exercise Performance & Muscle Recovery from faster blood flow.
- Lower BMI—if you are struggling with the last 10-20lbs of excess body weight, this method will help you.
- The Healthy “Street Credibility” You Deserve—You will be the healthiest person in your world. When someone asks, “How are you looking so fantastic?” you can say, “Well, I have this supportive community in Protective Diet Education, and I love it!”
- Keep fresh ginger and turmeric root in a small container in your freezer door for easy-access-quick-grating with a microplane.
- Freeze jalapeno peppers for easy year-round addition to the Beauty Broth Hot Pot and other recipes. Slice frozen.
- If food is sticking to your silicone baking mat, it needs to be replaced.
- The more we know, the more powerfully protective our diet becomes and the more we will stick to it fulltime. We will not deviate to make someone else feel better because we know too much about how it will sabotage our gut microbes.
- Understand the importance of doing this fulltime. It’s not just so your skinny jeans slip right on, but so you are protected, you have high energy and rev up your metabolism with a healthy gut microbiome. This is proven in cutting edge science.
“Oooo My Beauty Broth! I’ve got to get my little hot pot going. It’s a treat for my microbes and it’s going to give me that healthy glow.”
