The Best Day Ever With David Wolfe + A Green Superfoods Giveaway!
I’m still buzzing from David Wolfe’s conference on Saturday. This is the second time I’ve seen David do his thing on stage, and the eccentric nutrition expert never fails to deliver. His knowledge of everything from superfoods, super herbs, and medicinal mushrooms to hormones, joint health and disease prevention and healing is mind-blowing; and his presence alone is just so entertaining.
The highlight of the day was winning one of the rawffle prizes (geddit, rawffle?). They scrolled through everyone’s names on the big screen, and mine was the first to be picked. Then, as I was heading up to collect my goodies, David recognised me from an interview I did with him and pulled me up onto stage, gave me a mic and let me share a bit of my story with the crowd. Talk about a pinch-myself moment.
If you’ve ever heard David speak before, you’ll know how much information he churns out. These are just some of the most fascinating bits I jotted down in my notebook:
Wisdom from Mr Wolfe
+ “The thing you should do sucks. The thing you will do rocks!” Start with what is easy and enjoyable for you to do.
+ Build up daily healthy habits to stack the odds in your favour. Incorporate these habits into your life easily – like when you’re sitting in traffic or some other situation when you’re not doing anything anyway. Utilise the time to take herbal tinctures, repeat affirmations etc.
+ Creating a healthy habit is simple. You know the feeling of having a few too many drinks, going to bed and then realising that you forgot to brush your teeth? As soon as you have that thought, you force yourself to get up and brush your teeth. If you can do that, you can do anything! It’s all about creating a habit.
+ Business is spiritual because it expands your capabilities and pushes you to a level of goal setting that you wouldn’t get to otherwise.
+ Medicinal mushrooms (reishi, chaga, shiitake, cordyceps, trametes etc.) are the most powerful healing foods.
+ Cholesterol is the precursor of all hormones. Cholesterol lowering medication wreaks havoc with our hormones.
+ Progesterone cream is one of the most protective supplements we can utilise when it comes to hormone-related disease prevention. It’s also very protective during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy.
+ Nettle root (best in tincture form) prevents male pattern baldness.
+ No matter what the problem is, the solution is already there available to us. This is the way that the universe is worked out.
+ Good bacteria in the mouth leads to healthy teeth. Constant use of conventional toothpastes and mouthwashes are like disinfectants, wiping out both good and bad bacteria. We need to replenish the good bacteria in our mouths. Neem is great for this.
+ Cacao is high in iron – higher than any other plant. It’s also high in magnesium. This combo could explain why women crave chocolate when they have their period.
+ If you consume a stimulant, you must balance it with an anti-stimulant (eg. cacao and mucuna).
+ Wake up every morning and chant, “This is going to be the best day ever” over and over again.

This is me with Donna from MicrOrganics Green Nutritionals. I had the pleasure of helping these guys out on their vendor stand during the breaks.
WANT TO WIN SOME GREEN SUPERFOODS?
MicrOrganics Green Nutritionals are letting me give you guys some of their awesome Green Superfoods powder and glass straws.
This is my favourite green superfood blend, because it includes high percentages of what I consider to be the best greens – spirulina and chlorella, followed by a slightly lower percentage of alfalfa, barley grass and marine plant minerals. The number one reason why I use Green Nutritionals products over any others (besides the fact that they taste better) is because they’re stored in glass and they utilise the ‘LOCTEC’ oxygenless storage system, which is the best way to protect the superfoods’ nutritents. The biggest enemy of superfoods is oxygen, which can quickly damage sensitive vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, reducing nutritional potency.
Today I’m giving away five 150mg bottles of Green Superfoods powder, plus five glass frog straws.
If you would like to be one of the five winners, leave a comment under this post telling me your favourite green smoothie recipe.
Comp closes next Tuesday, 4 June and winners will be notified via email on Wednesday 5 June. Good luck!
Positive affirmation for the day: Today is the best day ever.
