Iโ€™ve had a major sweet tooth this week! Think chocolate oatmeal bowls ๐Ÿ˜‚ I cook my oatmeal with a tbsp of coconut butter & a tsp of @imlakesh maca. For the toppings, I caramelized a plantain with coconut oil & coconut sugar ๐Ÿ˜ป then added cacao nibs, walnuts, coconut flakes & drizzled with coconut nectar๐Ÿ˜› Definitely hit the spot!

Still swooning over all these crisp and crunchy greens from the farmers market ๐Ÿ˜ป There is no trick to eating healthy. You make small adjustments. You do better one by one. And then before you know it, youโ€™re rolling lettuce up in lettuce AND enjoying it ๐Ÿฐ I still eat pizza and ice cream and that upsets some people that I donโ€™t torture myself to adhere to a โ€œdietโ€. But the reality is that Iโ€™ve been eating plants for 6 years & nothing does your body as good as fruits & veggies in every color and exercise that makes you feel good. So maybe donโ€™t focus so much on the what & just add more veggies. Try fresh carrots ๐Ÿฅ• or something new like this red butter lettuce. Savor the color, the texture, the taste. Find peace in the food you eat. Enjoy life as it is now. Everything else comes as it comes. .

I canโ€™t even with these veggie enchiladas ๐Ÿ˜ญ Probably the best enchilada Iโ€™ve ever had because damn, @mamaeatsplants you know whatโ€™s up. Red sauce made from scratch. Stuffed with Swiss chard, portabella mushrooms, butternut squash, and black beans. I also sprinkled @kitehill ricotta on top, like a version of cojita. Then all the goodies, fresh radish, pickled onions, avocado & cashew creama ๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘… This dish will be loved again all week.

Iโ€™ve been listening to this before bed. Infusing my night time routine with peace for myself and peace for all ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ I love to learn & just one weekend of yoga teacher training was an eye opening, heart opening experience that Iโ€™m so grateful to have the opportunity to grow from. No matter where I or we are in our physical practices... we come back to the same place. How does life feel off of a yoga mat? You can bend & twist all day, but is your heart an expression of peace? Do you bring peace to others through your thoughts, words, actions? We are all learning, but by being present in this moment. Aware of our thoughts. And how they mold and effect ourselves and others we can shift the energy around us. I love this sentiment. That everyone can be happy and free & that I am a vehicle for this to occur ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ An expression of happiness and freedom by choosing to exist in the stillness that sustains life. You can be too and already are โค๏ธ

Part of my homework for yoga teacher training was to create a meditation space. So hereโ€™s my humble little space that includes the worlds smallest gong, a reminder to Ganesha (destroyer of obstacles), my @silverandsagejewelry mala & a bottle of Frankincense (my favorite oil). I noticed a huge shift in my energy this weekend and Iโ€™m committing to doing 100 days of meditation. Iโ€™ve spent many years thinking that yoga was my form of meditation... that silence outside of shavasana was just not my thing. And then it moved into chanting & pranayama (breath work) and I too thought this was meditation. Both of which create vibrational energy & sound. But something happened this weekend. That illuminated to me how everything I do is about movement. Energy. Sound. And when my teacher talked about removing our senses, that thought frightened me. It became very clear to me that silence was where my practice was headed next. And just one day without it, my energy felt imbalanced. So I decided that Iโ€™m going to sit in silence for at least 15 minutes for 100 days straight. So I got in my car this morning with the intention of heading home to create my new meditation space & blew a flat tire. Instead of wasting an hour while I waited for roadside assistance angry, frustrated, etc... I pulled out my mala. Chanted om shanti om 108 times, did 5 minutes of elongated breathing, and then sat in silence. So Iโ€™ll try out my new space tomorrow, but day 1/100 is done ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโœ…โœจ

Healthy food, healthy life. Yes, eating healthy, delicious food is possible on night shift and it doesnโ€™t come in mystery flavor cleanses ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ It comes in whole plant-based foods that are full of life, love & energy AND lifestyle shifts that support physical activity in conjunction with said plants. Reppinโ€™ hard with my lunch this week. Iโ€™m packing a to go version of Pho, a crunchy kale salad with a beet hummus dressing AND all the fruits & a side of walnuts. Plus, a strawberry serenity @gtskombucha as an extra little bonus ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Nothing complicated here.

When you have no chill and have to post how good this Pho you made was immediately ๐Ÿ˜ญ I made @hellonutritarian shiitake miso ginger broth modified for the Instant Pot. Added zoodles, baby broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, mung bean sprouts, onion, green onion, jalapeรฑo, basil, mint, & cilantro per her suggestions. Iโ€™m a fresh tofu in my soup kinda girl so I kept it simple there. Sprinkle with lime & scarf down ๐Ÿ˜ป I made the broth yesterday which took about 20 minutes of throw it in the pot and walk away. And then 10 minutes to heat up the broth and assemble ingredients today. Healthy food is fast food... if you make it that way. You can follow the anatomy of my bowl via my highlighted story tab ๐Ÿ˜˜

Iโ€™ve been jamming on these grapefruit mojito style water infusions. I slice up a lime, squeezing a few slices into my cup. Add 1 drop @doterra grapefruit essential oil. Rub together a few mint leaves to release the flavor & pour water over top. Itโ€™s ready to drink right then ๐Ÿ˜ป .

I never in a million years thought I would be on a mountain, giggling so in love with life. Yes, my own happiness sometimes surprises me ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ That Iโ€™m the girl who looks at sunsets and stares at the moon, not in longing to be elsewhere, but full of bliss for right here, right now. I feel extraordinarily lucky for my lows ๐Ÿ˜… (say what?!!!) Because days like this blow all of the pain, suffering, etc into oblivion. They make scars heal. And when theyโ€™re healed you can view them in a different light. Less about struggle, more about triumph. Yes, I am this happy girl. Standing on a mountain. Standing in awe of all before her ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Grumpy cat, black unicorns & sadness have left the building & I am home ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Hi ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I live here. And I am blessed to view the same sights in many different lights from many different angles. Last night in pink and purple with a full moon. In fact, le Luna lit our way as we climbed down in dusk & eventually darkness. I was reminded once again that with fresh eyes each experience is different and beautiful as it comes. And I am grateful for my open heart that loves the place I grew up in ways I never knew before I climbed a few mountains with my favorite person

Twist & shout & let it all out. Unwinding from my first night back at work after a long & blissful week off enjoying life. I take the time to make even the long and arduous twelve hour shifts, that keep me up all night while the rest of the world sleeps, seem like one fluid chain of inhales and exhales. There is bliss to be found every where. In the hustle. And the unwind. Iโ€™m still partial to the unwind ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, but arenโ€™t we all. Take a moment just for you today ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

I love food. To the point where my eyes roll back into my head when I taste something good. So I think it goes without saying that I ate my way through Joshua Tree like a boss & got home high on all the stuff I ate ๐Ÿคช But my body was like hey girl, I know you love food, but could you Juice some veggies and make us feel better ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Yes, I can. This apple, spinach, cucumber, celery, lemon, ginger babe is in my tummy & weโ€™re in recovery from all the food comas of traveling โœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโœจ
