This recipe is a pasta from the basics.
we all love pasta, especially my son.
Pasta with Home Made tomato sauce is super healthy and yummy. A bonus is the extra minerals like selenium, magnesium and Omega 3-6 fatty acids when we use fresh ingredients.

– Pasta – there is an amazing variety of bean pasta’s available these days. Try them out! I love the taste and they are great. They are made of lentils. chickpeas or other wholegrains. A glutenfree variety can support the body ‘s detoxification.

– Decorate your sauce with sea salted olives, or radish when in season. Get your olives in water, dark glass jar (DO avoid metal canned, i really love italian speciality shops that have these great quailty olives). too complicated? Try avocados, always a good cholce of healthy fats. Olives are rich in magnesium and radish are rich in sulfor, silicon and folic acid which are beauty mineral.

Hormone Balance

There has been a revolutionary development happening after the release of CBD or cannabis-oil- since it effect on healing the nervous system and related health-challenges.
Relatively new is Copaiba oil, it’s healing properties work on hormone balance , nervous system and receptors in the reptile brain. Copaiba essential oil has the ability to deliver major benefits without side affects. Hormone imbalance is becoming more and more common. Our society is challenged by the major impact of screens, radiation and working under high performance pressure without spending the necessary time in nature, recharging and rejuvenating ourselves in our free time. Receiving support in finding new healthy habits and routines is one of my major tasks as health coach.

One of nature’s solutions is relatively easy to apply, to re-balancing to create a healthy hormone balance in the body.

My experience with Copaiba oil is that it helps my nervous system to relax. I drink it with water with a drop of stevia and 1 drop of Copaiba. It helps me sleep deeper if if I take a drop under my tongue in the evening and during the day I sense balanced, a capacity to deal with all things going on at the same time.

Information from Doterra.com -blog:
” Since the 16th century, Copaiba has been used in traditional health practices. We now use it to help support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.* It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*

Copaiba essential oil is derived from the oleoresin of the copaiba tree, which can grow from 60 to 100 feet tall. The process of harvesting the copaiba oleoresin is similar to how one would tap a maple tree. A harvester will look for healthy trees that have large diameter trunks. The Amazon rainforest is very dense and nearly impossible to travel through with conventional vehicles. As such most travel for both personal and commercial purposes is done by boat. The complex network of smaller tributaries and larger rivers become the roads and highways by which goods are delivered.

doTERRA utilizes a large network of harvesters that transport their copaiba by boat from their different villages to Manaus.
Copaiba is harvested in the Amazones, by purchasing Copaiba oil you also support the local community there since DoTerra works with them through the Co-Impact sourcing projects. We encouraged them to join our harvesting group and assured them that we would pay them on-time and at fair prices for their oleoresin. They were excited by this proposition and agreed to join our harvesting group. We are definitely glad that this family has joined the network of families that are now a key part of the doTERRA Global Botanical Network. This experience goes to highlight the importance of our mission to source the world’s most beautiful oils from some of the world’s best people. We source great people as much as we source essential oils.”
