Understanding Your Adrenals For A Stress-Free Holiday

Does the following scenario sound familiar? The holiday season is starting and your urgent to-do list has a to-do list. Perhaps family drama is on that list. Definitely end of the year deadlines. Holiday parties add increased sugar and perhaps alcohol to your life which contributes to a lack of well-being and worsened sleep quality. Not this year! Now is the time, pre-holiday whirlwind, to enjoy the season differently this year - with less stress.

Breathe Through the Holidays

Breathe...Just Breathe
How simple, and yet we forget to do it.
Make it a practice to close your eyes and just breathe deeply. 
This is forwarded from Megafood, our whole food supplement supplier, and Dr. Andrew Weil, MD.

The Benefits of Seeds in Your Diet or Flax Seeds/Chia Seeds/Sunflower Seeds/Pumpkin Seeds: We love you at Passiflora

Many of your Passiflora favorites contain seeds, which are loaded with fiber and high in good quality essential fats to keep your hearts and brains humming. Two of our favorite seeds are: chia seeds and freshly ground flax seeds.  Those flax seeds are hidden in our black bean brownies, our morning glory muffins and our oatmeal, to name a few.  We love to add chia seeds to our Cacao-Maca-Chia Smoothie. But we also hide some cute sunflower and pumpkin seeds in our quinoa tabbouleh salad (look for them next time you are eating it).   What’s up?
