Be in The Buzz & Join The Club!
Seasonal cooking and fitness is a sure fire way to keep your health in tip top condition and your energies balanced. If you don’t already acknowledge and honour nature’s cycles this is the way to learn how to achieve this wonderful way of living. Join Marlene’s Cooking and Fitness Hub and learn how our lives are ruled by the five elemental energies, known as Five Elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
With summer days coming to an end and the return of Autumn Equinox this week it’s time to enjoy the delicious vegetables and fruits in your environment. Time to fill your tummy with foods that are vibrant and energised that will keep you in balance in all aspects of your life, mind, body and spirit.
My intention is that each student in my club becomes an agent of change in their life and that of their families. Taking charge of their own health, recognizing their role as a visionary and being a part of something ‘bigger’. Spreading the knowledge they learn from joining my Seasonal Cooking & Fitness Club will help so many who are suffering needlessly with ill health.
‘Loving’ the food and educational material at their first session has inspired many to share the message. The bottom line is this, we are all ‘information brokers’, so keep spreading the ‘good news’ about this wonderful way to live a long and healthy life with other families! This is the way forward to build community networks far and wide. Exciting prospect! Changing the diet to one of wholefoods plant based diet and vegan lifestyle is our hope for the future for ALL OF US.
The most prominent ecological crisis of our time, climate change can be healed by switching from a meat based to a plant based diet more than any other initiative.
Please enjoy this quick and tasty warming dish, one of my Autumn favourites from our macrobiotic cooking and fitness club.
