Meet Karin Collins

 
Karin Collins' journey to health and wellness began as a little girl growing up in Sweden, spending summers outside in the garden with her parents planting and harvesting fruit and veggies. Her favorite pastime was experimenting in the kitchen with her mother and coming up with dishes to share with friends and family. In 2011, Karin earned a degree in the Living Foods lifestyle at the Ann Wigmore Institute. She also attended Living Light Culinary Institute, where she became a certified Gourmet Raw Food Chef and Nutritionist educator.

A final spark came with the pregnancy and birth of Karin's daughter Liv in 2012. Karin knew instantly that her desire was to create and become a healthy living resource to other mothers and their families. The Living You LLC was born. It was during this time that Karin also became a certified yoga and fitness instructor and started the pre and postnatal fitness company, Fit4Mom Marin.

Currently, Karin works full-time with Young Living as a wellness advocate spreading health and wellness all around the world. Karin is certified at the Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education in the Raindrop technique.

In her pastime Karin loves singing, practicing ukelele, yoga, adventures, reaching  goals in crossfit, cooking, gardening, paddle boarding, hiking and snuggling with her husband, daughter and their 3 cats and dog

Use your imagination to create your reality

Use your imagination to create your reality
I’ve got chills. A lady bug landed on me right before departure from my dream weekend retreat with team Young Living this past week.

As I made my wish I couldn’t help to think about the meaning this spirit animal has for me.

I daydream ALL the time and I believe in magic. The thoughts in our minds becomes our reality even before we experience them. I know that not all people allow themself to act upon this “childlike” behavior, but I’m telling you it works to cast a vision of your life... to imagine the big things that you want for others, yourself and our world. I’ve practiced it and my dreams keeps getting fulfilled and let me tell you it’s not just luck.

It’s about letting go of limiting beliefs. It’s about letting go of fear because you are NOT fear. It’s about letting go of what other people will think of you. It’s about letting go of control because in reality you can’t control anyone or everything. This is YOUR choice.

When we have limiting beliefs we often feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward. Sometimes we might not feel worthy or we might feel shame about making too much money.

It’s about leading with your heart and searching in your soul. It’s about trusting in yourself and in others. It’s about thinking outside the box. It’s about leading with love.

We are all the same. We have faced many of the same challenges, same hurts and pains, but at the same time we are beautifully unique. We all have an incredible story to share that will inspire others. I want to hear your story. Others want to hear it. They need to hear it. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and show the real you because you will make a difference.

So let go of those limiting beliefs, negative thoughts and doubts. They are just lies. Follow your passion and you will not care what others may think of you. It will not matter. If you think you can. YOU WILL. YES, YOU CAN.

I can’t imagine what my life would look like if I would have listened to the lies of what others perception MIGHT be of multilevel marketing. I wouldn’t have the FINANCE to be able to help friends struggling with medical bills, I wouldn’t have the TIME to play ukelele, go for a hike and workout all in the same day. I wouldn’t have the FREEDOM to work when I want to and on my terms. Most importantly I wouldn’t have met an amazing COMMUNITY of friends who inspire me every day to kick fear in the butt. Business doesn’t have to look one way. You can be an employee or an entrepreneur. It’s simple.

So take charge of your dreams and ambitions and make them a reality. Let your imagination run wild and don’t overthink it or wait for perfection. The universe is waiting and the world needs you to help make it a better place. Spread your wings and fly lady bug.

Love,
K.C ❤️

Citrus Fresh Smoothie

Citrus Fresh Smoothie
Sipping on my favorite green smoothie from our 10-day smoothie cleanse. Yesterday was our last day, but one  green smoothie a day will always be a part of my life.  #greensmoothiesforlife is my motto. Just like meditating and working out in the morning sets the tone for the rest of my day so does a green smoothie. I end up making way better food choices and I have more energy throughout the day. 

During our cleanse, I shared information on how to optimize weight with plant-based foods. Although,  the green smoothie cleanse is NOT a diet, I think it's important to educate on how real clean foods such as fresh greens, veggies and fruits naturally supports any weight loss goals.  These healthy foods doesn't only have a higher nutritional content,  they also contain more water and fiber than processed foods so they will  fill up our stomachs faster and we will feel more satisfied. Counting counting calories and portion control becomes a thing of the past.  Visualize your stomach eating  a handful of raisins versus a bowl of grapes. Same amount of calories but what will fill you up faster?

My goal for the cleanse was for the participants to feel the difference and to learn about nutritional benefits so that it would make it easier for them to make healthy choices . I remember how it felt the first time I cleansed with plant foods. I had no idea that it was possible to feel so good. I slept good,  had tons of energy and jumped out of bed to seize the day. This feeling will always serve as a sweet reminder that a healthy diet is a powerful tool for protecting our health. It's OK to have some unhealthier food from time to time but once you know how good you feel and the benefits of healthy foods it's easier to jump right back and not fall off the wagon. And if you fall you won't fall as far because you know what serves your body and what doesn't so it's easier to get back up and on track.  Knowledge is a powerful tool and green smoothies will always be my go to for a quick and nutritious meal.

Finally, here is the yummy recipe you have been waiting for (not in the group).

 Citrus Fresh Smoothie

INGREDIENTS:
1 frozen or fresh banana
1 cup kale (stems removed)

For this recipe I'm highlighting Citrus Fresh Vitality Oil and Kale.

Young Living's Citrus Fresh Vitality is a powerhouse oil featuring the bright aromas of five citrus essential oils plus Spearmint. Citrus Fresh is perfect to add to your favorite foods. It includes naturally occurring constituents limonene, beta-pinene, and linalol.

Physically, it is a cleanser and helps with detoxification.  Put a drop of Citrus Fresh in your water. It is perfect for those hot days because it is refreshing to drink. And it tastes great in a smoothie like this one!! If you like citrus and mint then you will absolutely love this blend. It's refreshing and tastes great! It contains five different citrus oils plus Spearmint essential oil for that minty after taste.

What is in Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend? There are six different oils in Citrus Fresh. They are listed below along with a brief description of each oil.

-Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon) consists of 68 percent d-limonene. It has cleansing and purifying properties. It takes 75 lemons to create one 15 ml bottle of lemon therapeutic grade oil.

-Mandarin Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata) is uplifting to the mind and body and brings happiness and peace. It eases stress, irritability and may help get a good night's rest when diffused.

-Tangerine Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata) contains esters and aldehydes that are calming. Rich in d-limonene it helps to maintain a healthy lifestyle regimen.

-Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis) is rich in the d-limonene and may support cellular function. Also has calming effects and may be used for feelings of peace.

Oh kale, I love you. Kale is very high in nutrients and very low in calories, making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

-A single cup of raw kale (about 67 grams or 2.4 ounces) contains:

* Vitamin A: 206% of the DV (from beta-carotene)
* Vitamin K: 684% of the DV
* Vitamin C: 134% of the DV
* Vitamin B6: 9% of the DV
* Manganese: 26% of the DV
* Calcium: 9% of the DV
* Copper: 10% of the DV
* Potassium: 9% of the DV
* Magnesium: 6% of the DV
* It also contains 3% or more of the DV for vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), iron and phosphorus

-This is coming with a total of 33 calories, 6 grams of carbs (2 of which are fiber) and 3 grams of protein. 

-Kale contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat in it is an omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic-acid.

-Many powerful antioxidants are found in kale, including quercetin and kaempferol, which have numerous beneficial effects on health. They have powerful heart-protective, blood pressure-lowering, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-depressant and anti-cancer effects, to name a few.

-Kale contains substances that bind bile acids and lower cholesterol levels in the body.

-Vitamin K is an important nutrient that is involved in blood clotting. A single cup of kale contains 7 times the RDA for vitamin K.

-Kale is very high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that the body can turn into vitamin A.

Cheers to health!
