Just breathe, it’s that simple!

Early on in human evolution, when we were generally struggling to stay alive, we faced lots of physical dangers. This created the basic stress responses in our brains that we still carry today, hundreds of thousands of years later. Years of running from giant animals and the breathing that accompanied that activity stuck with the human psyche as a pairing that equated ‘danger’ with quick, shallow breaths.

Today, when we’re anxious, we still take quick, shallow breaths from our upper chest – this type of breathing is a natural response to stress and sends signals through our body that danger is nearby, which stresses us out even more. Even if there’s no real physical threat, we all still experience these breathing patterns because the stress response hasn’t evolved to differentiate between various stressors. This is why it’s important to pay attention to how you’re breathing the next time you’re stressed, angry, or worried. Look down, is your chest moving up and down with every breath or is your stomach?

With diaphragmatic breathing, you’ll breathe from the belly instead of the chest, which promotes deeper breathing and provides a sense of calm and relaxation encouraging the body to unwind.

To practice, place your hand on your abdomen and push outward while inhaling. A few rounds of this and you’ll remind your body that you’re just fine, and not in any physical danger.

Why did the Chicken Cross the Road? Because It Is Pasture-Raised and Free to Roam If It Wants to.

Why did the Chicken Cross the Road? Because It Is Pasture-Raised and Free to Roam If It Wants to.


Like many of the best things in life- when it comes to animal protein, quality is more important than quantity. I highly recommend choosing the highest quality animal proteins that you can find and afford. Let us explore some of the key words to look for when choosing livestock animal proteins specifically and what the terminology on the labels mean.

Poultry, beef, lamb & pork are considered livestock animals. Look for options that have these keywords,” Organic & Pasture Raised” this is the highest standard farming practice for livestock. In addition, look for beef & lamb that says it is also grass fed (not grass finished). Organic livestock is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. The current USDA organic standards define which livestock have the potential to be labeled organic and how they must be fed, housed, and managed. To be part of an organic program, livestock must meet the following criteria:

  • Produced with no genetic engineering, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation
  • Managed organically in a way that conserves biodiversity and natural resources from the second day of its life
  • Fed 100% certified organic feed that may be supplemented with appropriate trace minerals and vitamins
  • Raised on certified organic land that meets the standards set for organic crop production
  • Allowed year-round access to the outdoors as the weather permits
  • Managed in accordance with the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances, which means that no antibiotics (this prevents the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria), added growth hormones, avian or mammalian byproducts, or other prohibited ingredients are that are typically utilized

Not only is organic livestock the healthiest option for your body, since it will have less toxins then conventionally raised varieties, it also produces a better taste. Organic options are the most sustainable choice for the preservation of our planet
