Beauty Detox Power: Nourish Your Nervous System Elixir
The recipe I wanted to share today is my Nourish Your Nervous System Elixir. I wanted to share this recipe specifically with all of you because is has been so beneficial to me over the last few months. We often run ourselves ragged with work, family life and other day-to-day tasks.
The Beauty Detox Power contains life-changing new information which will shift your perspective about the role of food in wellness forever. I teach you all the factors involved in achieving and maintaining your ideal weight, to give you back control over how you look and feel.
We are complex beings, and just looking to oversimplify what affects our weight and health leads to long-term frustration and misery.
Making this recipe can help you to calm your nerves and tap into your true power. This recipe is a powerful creation that combines a few beauty ingredients that were chosen for their specific enriching qualities that help combat stress and balance your nervous system.
I hope you enjoy making this recipe and I can’t wait to share another early release next week!
NOURISH YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM ELIXIR
Recipe Type: Beverage
Author: Kimberly Snyder
This elixir is based on Ayurveda principles of nourishing your nerves. Your nerves are coated in a layer of fat, called the myelin sheath, which insulates, protects and guides the electric impulses of your neurons. All the ingredients in this recipe have been chosen for their specific enriching qualities. Almonds, with their beauty fat, vitamins and minerals, feed this protective fatty barrier, which helps you handle stress without allowing it to accumulate and overstimulate you. Cardamom is related to ginger and has warming, digestive-enhancing properties. It is also a diuretic, and so it helps flush toxins out of your kidneys. Saffron improves circulation and purifies the blood. This is a great recipe to sip in the evening, as you start to wind down, to help encourage peaceful beauty rest.
1 1⁄2 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons honey (preferably raw) or coconut nectar
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1⁄3 teaspoon saffron
Heat the almond milk in a small saucepan over medium heat to just under a boil. Stir in the honey, cardamom and saffron and enjoy at once.
