Progressive Life At The Equinox

Visit HumanaNatura           Follow Us On Facebook

Greetings from HumanaNatura at the equinox! In the natural year, we are now halfway between the extremes of light and darkness of the winter and summer solstices. Everywhere on earth, there is equal day and night, and a natural balance or centering that touches many aspects of life – and can aid and inform us all.

A Moment in the Everchanging Light and Rhythm of the Natural Year

In the HumanaNatura natural health system, and as explained in our Mastering The Natural Year graphic and post, we encourage review and renewal of our Natural Life Plans during the twice-yearly times of natural balance that are the equinoxes. This includes making changes to our existing plans as needed, and considering anew what progressive natural life and health mean for us, as we look back and ahead in our lives.

If you have not yet created a Natural Life Plan to guide your use and expression of the third HumanaNatura technique, Natural Living, our links will take you to our planning worksheets and seven-step planning process. Together, these resources will help you to begin more intentionally health-centered and naturally progressive life in the days and weeks ahead.

Our newest member newsletter was released today as well, which is published eight times yearly in harmony with the natural year, providing updates on HumanaNatura’s resources, programs, and worldwide health campaigns. To receive future HumanaNatura newsletters or learn more about our global practitioner-advocate network, go to Join HumanaNatura.

Endless Summer Salad Meal

OurPlate Score: 10/10          Follow Us On Facebook

For fun or other reasons, sometimes we want or need to dine out. But restaurant meals are often among the least healthy foods we eat – frequently low in fiber and high in saturated fats, sugars, and salt – especially if we are health conscious in our at-home meals. Given this, it’s worth identifying at least one and ideally several restaurants and menu items in our area that allow us to eat the HumanaNatura way and follow HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines when we dine out. To underscore this idea, today’s example meal comes from a local bistro. As you will see, it scores high on the OurPlate rating scale, and is nutritious, delicious, and easy to prepare.


This sample HumanaNatura Salad Meal is remarkably simple and has many potential variations. It begins with a grilled chicken breast, which is allowed to cool for a few minutes if freshly cooked or warmed if previously cooked and refrigerated. The chicken is cut into bite-sized pieces and placed atop a salad base of spring greens, along with a few small cubes of feta cheese, diced apple, dried cranberry, and sliced avocado. It’s then dressed with a champagne vinaigrette, or just olive oil and white balsamic vinegar, and garnished with parsley and black pepper. Easy variations include using salmon instead of chicken, pear or another fruit instead of apple, and chopped dates or figs in lieu of cranberries. Were we making this at home, we might also garnish the salad and any of these variations with a small nut – shelled pistachios or pine nuts would be an awesome addition. In any case, a delicious, healthy, and satisfying meal, whether at or away from home.
