When You Set the Table Tonight

Interesting point at 4:20 minute mark about giving to everyone else and leaving ourselves last. If you're setting a table for dinner tonight notice whose plate you put down last. If you're like most people, we put our own plate last. Nicole talks about nature and learning about sustainability of our own energy.

Self-Care Superstar

As many of you know, when you're getting ready to do something big a lot of mud can hit the fan. It hit me last night as I worked on the upcoming series SAD Diet to Self-care Superstar! All the ways I wasn't caring for myself showed up.

This post says the kindest thing we can do for ourselves in 2015 is to befriend ourselves. I couldn't agree more. Many people are having a hard time transitioning to a healthy, whole-food diet and what I've noticed is that it takes truly loving ourselves. To make ourselves a priority and take the time needed to shop for and prepare fresh food. If you'd like to be notified of the upcoming free mini-series join this group now.
Love the wisdom of Martha Beck from +Oprah Winfrey  Befriending me was never on my agenda... that changes today!
If you're great at pointing out all your mistakes and beating yourself up, do what Martha Beck did: Become your own best friend. If you're great at pointing out all your mistakes and beating yourself up, do what Martha Beck did: Become your own best friend.

Did you know fast food is as addictive as heroin? Experts in this documentary show us the way out of over-consumption, reliance on mainstream media and junk food.

I'm offering a free mini-series on being a Self-care Superstar in March. Please post questions or comments. What specifically would you like me to cover? Thanks
SAD Diet to Self-care Superstar! 

This event is to answer questions about the upcoming free mini-course March 10, 12, 15 & 16. 

The SAD Diet is known as the Standard American Diet, but also includes all western diets that have left us fat, sick and low in vitality. To me it also includes what we feed ourselves visually, mentally and spiritually. 

Most of us have been raised in a consumer society that teaches us to buy things we don’t need, place work and other peoples’ needs ahead of our own self-care, and eat diets that contribute to lifestyle diseases.

My intention for the mini-course is to expose how we got into this mess and how we can live the second half of our lives with self-dignity, fun and freedom. My intention for this specific event is to answer questions you may have about the content and benefits of this mini-course.+Tamara Belland will be moderating the live hangout.

No need to wait until the show, let’s get the discussion going now… leave your thoughts and questions for Pamela Ziemann here. We'd love to hear from you before, during or after the show.

Skip for your Bones!

When I made a video daring people to skip, there were people who needed lessons. They'd forgotten!

Dr. Joel Fuhrman encourages exercises for bone health, so when I'm walking my dog I skip. Gets the heart going, weight-bearing and fun!

When is the last time you skipped?

#humpday   #iskip   #skipping  
Need an extra dose of happy? Skipping might be just thing! I mean, just the image in my head of adults skipping down the halls of Corporate America on this fine #humpday makes me giggle.

Your video was so great!  I like the tip of the apples or pear sprinkled on top of the soup.  Haven't tried that before but it sounds yummy! The skipping dare was AWESOME.  And it made me smile just watching you do it.  :)

Adding Spirituality to your Meal When Dining Alone

Love the question from +Lon McClure at the 14 minute mark asking Meadow how we infuse spirituality in our meals when multi-tasking or eating alone.

Simple steps to real food and a vibrant life
Hi! I'm Pamela Ziemann founder of Elemental Cuisine teaching people just like you how to get back to nature by eating real food and nourishing their soul.

The truth is most of us have been so busy working to buy things we don't really need that we sacrifice our spirit along the way. We drive through fast food joints or buy convenient packaged food to fill our stomachs but never really feel nourished. Whether it's feeling we don't have enough time, money or skills, taking ultimate care of ourselves isn't usually the highest priority.

Elemental has a couple meanings. The first one is: characterized by stark simplicity, naturalness, or unrestrained or undisciplined vigor or force. I remember a simpler time when I felt an unrestrained zest for life. Do you remember that too? Nature was a big part of my life when I was a kid. I loved talking to and playing with animals. I enjoyed wide open spaces and singing full-out while riding my horse through the fields.

Little by little I lost my true nature and fell into the trap of eating the SAD (Standard American) Diet. My face lost it's glow, I gained weight and my blood work showed abnormal results. I cared more about my successful career as a real estate appraiser than my true, inner wants and needs.

On the outside I had a perfect life. I moved to Indonesia with my fiancé and my bank account 'proved' that I had value. The thing is, I never really felt valuable. In Bandung you either have a maid or you are a maid. So we hired a maid, a driver, and a gardener to be the proper expatriates. It was exciting at first but I didn't know who I was without the career I left behind. Our relationship fell apart. My journey to find self-love and intrinsic value began.

I flew back to the states searching for meaning. I started taking and teaching a powerful personal development course called Avatar, learning about the importance of how my thoughts create my reality. It wasn't the easiest thing in the world but, for the first time in a long time, I began smiling when I looked in the mirror.  

Even though I was completely freaked out speaking in front of groups, I learned my voice did matter. Through public seminars, I started teaching others around the world to communicate more effectively. With this exciting and hectic lifestyle I found myself eating more convenience food, getting less sleep and focussing on other people needs while forgetting about my own. Teaching others about self-expression was a huge breakthrough for me but something was still missing...

How to feed myself a healthy and sustainable diet.

I enrolled in a Raw Food Culinary School to learn how to nourish myself like I had never done before.

At first it was hard cutting vegetables. It took so much time. Buying organic cost more. But slowly I felt my priorities shift from outer focus to inner focus. Where I once felt money was best saved for a new car or retirement, I knew that quality fuel for my mind, body and spirit was more important. I wanted to feel good in a flexible & fit body.

I found that feeling good attracted a completely different clientele. I created a new world by making myself a priority. My soul was doing cartwheels and I felt like a kid again.

Bragging rights
Put all my stuff in a 10' Uhaul and moved out of Seattle to the small town of Sequim. I was lead role in the play Becky's New Car and a singer in the Musical Summer of Love. Now I'm in Tweaking Reality, an Improv troupe. This small town on the Olympic Peninsula is like living in Shangra La, but I still need to get back to Seattle to see my friends and eat at some awesome vegan restaurants.
