"I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace." ~Hermann Hesse

ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH KALE SALAD w/ FARRO AND GOAT CHEESE


Ingredients: •1 large butternut squash (peeled/chopped into pieces)
•1 15oz. can of garbanzo beans (strained & rinsed)
•1 cup farro (rinsed)
•2 cups broth (chicken/veggie) or water
•4 cups chopped kale (deboned)
•1 red onion (diced and divided into two separate ¼ cup measurements)
•3 garlic cloves (peeled & minced)
•1 tsp dijon mustard
•1 tsp maple syrup
•3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
•1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
•½ cup dried cherries
•¼ cup pepitas
•½ cup crumbled goat cheese •Olive Oil (approx. 6-7 Tbsp)
•Salt & Pepper (to taste)


Veggies: ~Preheat oven to 375 degrees. ~Place chopped butternut squash on baking sheet - drizzle with approx. 2 Tbsp olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Mix together & place sheet in oven to bake for 20 minutes. ~Remove sheet from oven - add garbanzo beans to pan. Mix everything together and return sheet to oven. Bake for an add’l 15 minutes. Once cooked, remove from oven & set aside.
__
Farro: ~While squash/beans are baking, bring broth/water to boil over high heat and then add farro. Once added, lower heat & cover. Let simmer for approx. 20-30 minutes or until farro has expanded and become al dente.
__
Dressing: ~In a medium skillet over medium/high heat, add 3 Tbsp olive oil, ¼ cup diced red onion and 3 chopped/minced garlic cloves. Let sauté for 1-2 minutes. Turn heat to low & continue to sauté for an add’l 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. ~In a lidded container (I used a mason jar), add cooled onion/garlic mixture with dijon mustard, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice & a pinch of salt. Close lid tightly - shake until all ingredients are combined.
__
Salad: ~Add chopped kale to a large mixing bowl - drizzle with approx. 2-3 tsp olive oil and salt (to taste). Massage kale by hand 3-5 minutes to break down the kale until it becomes tender. ~To prepare salad, combine kale with farro, butternut squash mixture, dried cherries, ¼ cup diced red onion, pepitas & goat cheese crumbles. Top with dressing. Toss and enjoy!!



**Tips: I chose to prepare the kale first so it had more time to soften (better for my digestion).

The true spiritual life begins within the individual when he perceives the importance of it, and begins to realize what spiritual values are. Therefore, in order for man to emerge from his present state of chaos, he must experience a revolution of a new type, one that will have neither a political nor an economic character. We may call it the individual self-revolution. There is nothing that can better transform man from his materialistic conception of existence to a spiritual awareness of life than such individual revolution from within... -- Frederick Kettner

Ever have your pre-workout dry out or clump together?

So we made a document to help you understand why that happens and what you can do to prevent it from happening again. (Link in Bio)

Take the time
To empty your mind
To stop being drained
With thought
...
You need to stop
To gently smile
To say
“This really is
So simple
So easy
So as it needs
To be” - @magisterdaire

Rest and relaxation 💙

As a nutritional therapist when drawing up a nutritional programme for a client, beside a diet protocol, lifestyle factors such as sleep, physical excercise, together with rest and relaxation are all factors to be considered.
This is the stunning view from the weekend, across Carsington Waters, Derbyshire. Nourishment is more than the food we eat. So this was me practicing what I breach and taking time out from everyday routine to spend valuable time with the family.
Monday now and I'm on a train feeling recharged from the weekend. I'm back at uni this morning with my gorgeous fellow nutritional therapist friend @thekitchenproject_kent presenting our case studies to final year students to share our learning.

Wishing you a great start to your week.

Another great day at The Gorilla Pit with @autumnsulouff and my sensei @ptxpt. Feeling GREAT getting closer to the meet and deadlifts were great with this being my 3rd deadlift session of the week. Have a solid 3 day workout for a nice rebound week. Closer and closer to stepping on the big stage again. 💪🏽🤘🏽😈 #deadlift #powerlifting

Hence, as above, so below ⭐️

People will literally cling to you out of fear of not improving themselves. You have to be resourceful enough to divide yourself from the quo of this behaviour. See through the masks, let it fall away and take steps forward pridefully. 🦁

Earlier this year, my beautiful friend Janelle made this canvas featuring my favorite quote. I’m definitely guilty of prioritizing work over life, health, and rest sometimes (Or oftentimes, especially lately), and as a repeat burnout offender, this line always hits close to home.
•••
There are deadlines in the morning, and there’s always work to be done. But today I’m taking this beautiful line of poetry by Mary Oliver to heart. Two hours of fun, here I come. 💛💛💛

It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of entrepreneurship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have all the things to do and while your intentions are sincere, along the way those things that matter to you, the reasons for why you do what you do can be overshadowed by your ambition. ⠀

Remember your core values when you’re developing your business model so that you don’t burn your wicks at both ends. ⠀

Do the things that light you up, bring you joy, make you laugh, and feel fulfilled. .
