Paleo Vegetarian, What?

Paleo Vegetarian, What? I Paleo Vegan or Paleo Vegetarian I Join Us

You Are Here. 

You come to me to get something… something that you need so badly you can barely breathe. You want to be passionate about something and you can almost touch it! You want to wake up with the gratitude that you get to align your body in the most magnificent way  ❤ for one more day! That's the truth about living a passionate life, and about finding your SOUL PURPOSE 

Me: Create a world of greater vibrations through plants & elevated consciousness. 

How did I get here:

My name is Barbara Christensen, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Certified Aromatherapist (among other things), on a path to enlighten you with the power of plants in all facets of your life. I am the author of both, Nourished In 30, Exploring Aromatherapy, available on Amazon. 

Essential oils are just a part of my natural plant infused paleo style of living and they have been used for many years, both for emotional and physical health. You can use essential oils aromatically, topically and some people add essential oils to food and drinks. I enjoy drinking organic turmeric water with just a drop of lemon essential oil. However, just like with the vegan diet, there are a multitude of beliefs about them. Rather than uncreate this vibrational uprising that is happening in the natural world, I decided to create a tribe of those that are into the weirdness that I am.

On this journey, just like using essential oils to biohack and upgrade my lifestyle, I use encapsulated whole foods (vegetables, fruits, berries and omegas) in my practice for the emotional and physical shift they offer, and because of the science and biology that backs up using these dense micro-nutrients. Over the last four years I have found that micro-nutrients facilitate body processes and is one of the biggest opportunities we have to simply create a body shift quickly. In today’s world not every plant is created equal or in equal soil. What we eat, is who we are. Like the plant, we require nourished roots. 

I hope to introduce you to some information about the properties of fruits and vegetables on this page, and perhaps you will find the power of plants in your own life. Once you become addicted to the natural high you get from feeding your microbiota correctly, it will become part of the path that you will never look back on without a smile. Plants are amazing. The ability to create our bodies from these beautiful plants is just the beginning, and the possibilities are endless. 
When we connect the foods we eat, and the foods we supplement we can create a synergy in our being that is what I call elevated nutrition. If this resonates with you now, then you are in the right place.

I call myself an Energy Creation Coach
I am the Creator of the Paleo Vegeo Lifestyle and the Ketolicious Reset. 
I use a protocol I created called PhysioEQ and bring together Nutrition, Aroma, & Frequency biofeedback to offer you the life you crave. Let me ROCK your world & change the way you feel about food, your body & your future!! Life is energy, and whatever weaves through it... it’s all connected.  

❤❤ Barbara Christensen 

Choices are the secret to the most incredible life you never thought possible.  Choices allowed me to take the SAD stupidity of food, and turn it into a creation promoting a plant based lifestyle that sparks energy and joy all around the globe. Currently I work with individuals that are looking for a way to create their own change and shift their energy. Sometimes it’s via energy work, sometimes it’s holistic/nutritional coaching, and sometimes it’s to help them attain their Beach Money, which just means getting paid over and over again for working one time. It sets you free on this earth and there's nothing else like it, except a sweet hemp milk matcha green tea latte. I’ll take both, please.

Barbara Christensen is a Certified Aromatherapist who specializes in the energy body connection. She struggled with her health throughout her childhood and early adulthood which lead her to seek out and become a purpose driven alternative expert. Barbara, who also has been trained in the areas of nutrition, energy modalities and anatomy; specializes in whole body wellness, says "My belief is that most of what we are dealing with is passed down and environmental gene expression that can be changed with diet, mindset and alternative therapies." Her expertise has made her a sought after guide for vegan paleo dieters, and those seeking to awaken and create a higher energy vibration. 

" I became interested in wellness and a holistic approach at the age of 11 when I went to the ER after my first anaphylactic response to food. After years of a downward spiral in what should be the healthiest years of your life, I found the tools to start feeling incredible and I was amazed at how just a few little changes in my diet and environment could make me feel so good.

I love helping people break free from these stories that create negative beliefs, energetic implants and overall imbalance. I’ve helped people from all around the World to break free from these energetic stories because this is what is limiting us from living a lifestyle of wellness. During my combined 20 years of working with clients from in my spa and studio, to working with people and companies online, I have created a higher understanding of the inner obstacles we need to release in order to break our limiting belief stories.

I have spent the last eight years homeschooling my daughter with special learning and allergy needs, after watched too many kids go through the public system without the personalized support they need. It was the same spark that sparked my creation of the Paleo Vegeo dietary lifestyle and the plant-heavy Ketolicious Reset program, and to start sharing the knowledge of energetic, herbal and nutriceutical support tools."

I have a million allergies... corn, soy, nuts, seeds, bananas, kiwi, avocado, lemon, orange... and on and on. So it's only reasonable that I would be very interested in food and how that food can change your health. Don't look at this site and hate right off the bat. Just because I don't eat a cow doesn't mean I'm not hitting the mark on nutrition.


When I grew up we had a huge, beautiful garden, that is until my mom went back to work in my early teens. That is when the processed foods and my allergies and health issues (IBS) started. I did the Zone diet once in my late twenties, but still was eating a lot of processed foods. My IBS got so bad at one point that I couldn't work a 4 hour shift without ending up on the floor curled up in agony.


My first big food change was to organics after my daughter was born. She was 18 months old and I found myself over 70 pounds heavier than I had been before I had gotten pregnant, miscarried, gotten pregnant again and had my daughter. I was probably as round as I was tall... which is easy to do when you are just five feet tall.


The next was a conversion in my life was to pastured foods along side the organics. My friend and I would hit the local farms in the afternoon or on a Saturday morning, buying our whole chickens, eggs, and beef. But I wasn't really losing much weight it seemed. Of course every Saturday (and a lot of the days in between) I was enjoying a big Venti Skim Milk Matcha Green Tea Latte {sugar full} at Starbucks after doing an hour of cardio at the gym. I was eating clean, so I thought. But I was still using a lot of products full of sugars, full of garbage and my system was going through overkill on inflammation due to allergies and the problems that milk {no raw local dairy} was having on my body.


In January of 2010 I did the 21 Day Kickstart program and went completely Vegan. I felt great. I was a cardio TurboKick girl and the weight started to drop. In June of 2011 we moved to Washington and had a horrible experience, and ended up looking for another house the second day we were here. With no fridge, and starving I had some eggs at Whole Foods that morning and it was not bad. Over that first couple of months I added back in pastured eggs and wild caught salmon. But a few months later I was back to a strict vegan diet.

Then I started Les Mills Pump. It's still very cardio based, but it builds muscle. By the time I got into lifting weights 45 - 55 minutes 3 times a week I was one tired girl. I thought it was B12, even though I was getting 100% of my B12 with coconut milk and the big expensive shake. {never realizing the folic in the big expensive shakeo could be the problem} So it must be iron. I started taking iron. I was still tired. I finished Pump, but only dropped 3 pounds. {Although I did drop 10 inches} Something didn't fit. Weights + Veganism wasn't working for my body. I will share more on what the real problem was another day, but this is where I was.


Next was my 21 days of the body reset. 1 week of fish, dairy {couldn't do it} and chicken {also couldn't do it}. Then two weeks of vegan eating. Not bad. I lost a few more inches, and felt good. But then I kept getting tired. Tired, tired, tired. When I started Body Beast I decided the game plan had to change. I read up a lot about glutathione, and proteins, and paleo athletes. I knew that I couldn't go back to cows, chickens, turkeys... sorry folks it's true. So I decided to add back in the pastured eggs. Then come phase two I added back in the wild caught fish. Guess what, I actually did better with the wild caught fish, the raw whey when I actually used dairy, and more vegetables than I had ever done before. So this is my journey. You may call me more of a " Pescetarian" but I like to call it Paleo Vegeo, or a paleo vegetarian --- leaning most days into straight up vegan joy. You may not agree, but that's what living is about... choices.

So flash forward. 2015. I started dealing with some autoimmunity issues and I looked inward. I started using whole food supplementation and went back to my Kickstarter roots and as a vegan following the Paleo Vegeo lifestyle just feels right. I may change that up at some point in life as I follow my own body, and what I feel internally.

So you can do this lifestyle vegan no matter what anyone tells yo. As well if you feel it go vegetarian, eat fish, add in tofu... you choose what you feed your body to feel amazing. That's what personal nutritional truth is. Your truth! 


XOXO,
Barbara
