I add a banana into my shake most days – I just love the added nutrients and added flavor – bananas are super affordable, and the carbs coupled with the superfoods in my shake help keep me on track (most days!)
For most people, mushrooms are either liked, or hated… no middle ground. Where do you stand on them?
I am one who loves them – raw or cooked! I especially appreciate that they are low-carb but high-fiber — that’s a Diabetic’s dream!🙂
So many varieties… give them a chance!
Do you have a favorite recipe that calls for mushrooms?
Who doesn’t want to feel good? It’s easy to feel pulled in so many directions with the holidays, in addition to all the other happenings in life. One way to keep it in check is to learn to say NO!
You do not have to attend every party, every gathering, every gift exchange, every cookie swap, and everything else. Your time is not infinite. By saying no to something that doesn’t serve you, or that you don’t enjoy, you are able to say YES to something you DO enjoy!
And since the goal in life is to do more things you enjoy, this gets you closer to that.
Do things you enjoy; things that make you feel good!
“Dance, full out, with no regard to who is watching, unconcerned with impressing or outshining.
Dance brilliantly, dance loudly, and dance as if your life depended on you pouring your entire heart out on the dance floor.”
One of my personal development books included this passage and I love it! While she was specifically referencing a dancer, the concept can be applied to life, too.
Don’t worry about who is watching, what they are doing, or needing to impress or get approval from anyone. Just live. Just dance.
Wednesday food for thought! Change your perspective – instead of bemoaning why life keeps asking you the same question, see if you can’t change your answer! What lessons can you take from it and apply, in order to move forward and advance?
Do you like acorn squash? What about sweet potato? Dynamo combination, if you ask me!
With all the holiday meals, it can be easy to feel bogged down. This is a lighter, cleaner dish offering tons of flavor but won’t sit in you like a ton of bricks, either.
A note: sometimes using sweetened cranberries takes off some of the tartness. I make this exception to the rule because I don’t like the super bitterness of cranberries that have been baked. You can use whichever cranberry form you like!🙂
If you don’t have dreams to be working towards, you have nothing. Just my opinion, but without dreams and goals, you have nothing to propel you forward, to inspire yourself to be a better version of yourself. And ya gotta write them down; ya gotta make then tangible!
Always be dreamin’… and always be taking steps towards those dreams.
What do you dream of?
Tis the season for Cranberry! The tartness of the cranberry works really well with the vanilla here.
Phytonutrients, which are naturally derived plant compounds, are present in cranberries and have been found to prevent a wide range of health problems, making cranberries a tiny but mighty asset to your health!
If you would like to try it, let’s chat!🙂
Shoutout to all the small business owners out there! Do your part to support them! Remember, when you support small businesses, you aren’t helping a CEO get yet another vacation home, or upgrade his boat. You are helping a little ballerina get her dance lessons, or a budding Picasso get art lessons, helping struggling parents put food on the table… all sorts of goodness!
Help support these businesses – being the owner of a couple myself, we work really hard, and any and all support is much appreciated! You are helping to support our dreams, and encouraging others to do the same!
Do you have your own business? If you’d like to include the link in comments, I would love to check it out!
