Aerobic Activity Can Reduce Risk of Metastatic Cancer:

A new study at Tel Aviv University that monitored 3,000 individuals for about 20 years found that aerobic exercise can reduce the risk of metastatic cancer by 72%. According to the researchers, intense aerobic exercise increases the glucose (sugar) consumption of internal organs, thereby reducing the availability of energy to the tumor. The study included participants who reported regular aerobic activity at high intensity compared to those who did not engage in physical exercise. Click here to read more about this study.

Let's Get Into Your Body:

Move in the body you woke up in. Don't judge where you are or where you were, physically. Find a safe space where you can only wear your underwear. Put on your favorite song and celebrate the fact that you are here. You are here now in this beautiful body. And just listen.

Organic Lemon Blueberry Crisp Recipe:



Ingredients

  • ​3 1/2 cups frozen wild blueberries no thawing required*

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 cup organic old-fashioned rolled oats (I use One Degree)

  • 1 cup organic chopped pecans

  • 1/2 cup organic almond flour/meal or hazelnuts in a high-speed blender will work too

  • 1/4 fresh squeezed organic lemons plus the zest of the entire lemon. Wash lemons well.

  • 2 tablespoons pure organic maple syrup no other ingredients

  • 1/4 cup melted organic coconut oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (I use Real Salt)


Instructions

To begin, preheat your oven to 375°F. While your oven is preheating, grab a pie dish and add a smidge of coconut oil - just a teaspoon will do - then smear it around the dish. Add some blueberries to the dish and sprinkle some lemon zest and vanilla over the top. Give it all a good toss, and then set it aside.

Next, in a medium bowl, stir together some oats, pecans, almond flour, melted coconut oil (make sure to heat it in the oven for a minute, no nuking!), cinnamon, and sea salt. In another bowl, combine some maple syrup and squeezed lemon juice. Once both mixtures are ready, combine them together.

Spoon the oatmeal pecan topping over the blueberries, making sure to gently press the mixture down using the back of the spoon. Bake the dish in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the topping has hardened and turned a lovely golden brown color.

Once the dish is done baking, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool for 10-20 minutes.

Then, serve it with some organic fresh berries, and enjoy!

Notes:

  • Blueberries – Frozen wild blueberries for this recipe - YUM! But if you don't have any on hand no worries regular fresh or frozen blueberries will work.

  • Pecans – If you're not a fan of pecans you could try chopped walnuts or hazelnuts.

  • Lemon adds acid and replaces the flavor/taste of sugar and salt. When I was going through chemo I left out the maple syrup. Depending on where you are on your healing journey this will be your choice.

  • Pie dish I kept things very simple when I was recovering, so in a pie dish everything went then cut into 8 slices and for me, this was comfort on a plate!

  • Photo note The photo was done with a bag of frozen organic mixed berries so that's why you see some raspberries, boysenberries, and blueberries. You can do as you wish. I have tried strawberries, but they make it too mushy. The small berries are better.
