~  A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER: Avoid Brain-Breaking Oils ~ They sneak that sh*t into everything! ~
You Are What You Eat:  Literally.... 
Historically I have been as guilty as most in assuming reaching for the "organic, gluten free, all natural superfood snack" in the grocery or airport while I'm on the go, is doing myself a service to my overall health... Thats just not the case.
Many of these common "healthy" snacks and food items are saturated in garbage trans-fats like hydrogenated vegetable oils, canola, safflower, sunflower or corn oils.  I'm going to briefly explain the effects these can have on your health, specifically the organ pulling all the levers and switches controlling the rest of your body ~ your brain.  
You are what you eat - and your brains composition is 60% fat. Food for thought...

Every cell in your body has an outer membrane responsible for allowing compounds in and out for its functioning.  This membrane is formed by the fats you eat.  By eating low quality, damaged fatty acids that canola, safflower, sunflower, and other vegetable oils are primarily composed of, you are essentially building your tissues with much less than desirable materials, and handicapping their functionality.  When it comes to the brain and it's optimal functionality, avoiding these processed oils is vital to avoid chronic inflammation caused by the cell-destroying oxidative stress they contribute to.  Instead, fuel your brain with high quality sources of dietary fats.
  • High Quality Olive Oil
  • Nuts and Seeds (Flax, Chia, Walnuts, Hemp etc)
  • Avocados 
  • Oily Fish (Appropriately sourced)
  • Coconut
When making dietary choices it is vitally important for us to diligently read the ingredients of your packaged foods. As a little experiment recently,  Allison and I during the past couple visits to the grocery store searched out the foods we typically thought were "healthy snack items" and were appalled at how frequent canola, safflower, and sunflower oils came up, and we changed our shopping strategy accordingly. We hope you do the same.  

Big Love, 

~ Ryan

Words From Our Clients

I am delighted with the improvements I've made! My painful back, hip and leg issues are gone, I've gained strength and stamina. My posture has improved and I have tons more energy.
At 55 deciding to improve my health was an important decision and I'm so happy that I chose to go to Body Architects and work with Luc to achieve this goal.

Recipes for Performance & Longevity 
Spirulina Spinach Smoothie Bowl     
What You’ll need:
(serves 2)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (we used Sunwarrior brand) 
  • 2 scoops collagen powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp mct oil 
  • 1 cup frozen spinach 
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches 
  • 1 small banana 
  • 2 tbsp spiraveg spirulina 
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup ice or more to desired thickness
  • Water as needed to desired thickness
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend! For a smoothie bowl it’s nice for the consistency to be thicker than a normal smoothie but you can choose your desired thickness by adding extra water/ice as needed. Pour into two bowls and top with desired toppings! (We like sliced banana, dried goji berries, organic muesli (no sugars added), organic raw cashews, drizzle of natural nut butter... the possibilities are endless).

Why we love this:

We are currently living in a hotel and have been making use of our blender a lot more lately. Smoothie bowls are great alternatives to traditional smoothies and the possibilities for them and the toppings are endless. Smoothie bowls are great ways to get a lot of fruit and veggies in one meal. A tip we do is we add our liquid vitamin D/K2 on top of our smoothie bowl before digging in (vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin and ingesting it with healthy fats is recommended for optimal absorption).

Stay healthy,

~ Dr. Allison Ellis
