What does that mean to you?

BLOG TAKES A TURN!

Standard

Hey well it has been a long time!  *****************

This blog is definitely going to take a turn. I have been on a huge journey for myself and didn’t want to post until I could really bring you something that was working for me. I am now doing well. I am not eating raw, vegan, juicing. Nope yummy food is involved. Overnight oats, omelets, power bowls (credit over to powercakes), fish, pancakes and more. I have become something of a chef and cannot wait to share it with you.

I also feel the site can be a sense of support for everyone. Recovery is not just from eating disorders, drugs or alcohol. What about the person who self esteem is so low, or is trapped in her exercise routine or diet or is addicted to shopping. It is all  pain that is coming out sideways. Which is why I am really focusing on the blog.
Also I changed my site name because I feel that people  (like myself) live so much in the past they forget about the future and do not realize that everything that happens is

ALL THEIR STORY!

I just had to give a huge shoutout to some blogs and youtubes I have been loving lately:::

So the news I thought I was gonna share unfortunately didn’t work out:(.

Today I have a recipe and in the next two days I’ll have some SERIOUS surprises for the blog!!

Spirulina Salad Pasta

Ingredients:

As much as desired Spirulina
1-2 zuchinni
Bag of spinach
Cherry tomatos
Celery
Line and/or Lemon

To Do:

First spiralize your zucchini in a spiralizer. Then add your spinach bag and cut them both with a knife to get more manageable. Then take a few cherry tomatoes and a few stalks of celery ( celery gives it a great crunch) and finely cut and add to salad. Finely, spoon out your spirulina and squeeze some lime and Lemon on there. I also added some stevia and sea salt to make flavored pop!
Then get dirty and mix it all together until it all green and gooey yuMiness!!!:)
Great salad before a dinner…

Emotions Food and the Colon

Standard

I have recently discovered the power of emotions.

It affects everything. That’s why there is emotional eating and emotional constipation( yes, its real).

When I am happy I digest everything and I am regular.

My challenge to you is to look at your emotions. Wether it be through meditation (listen to the ocean while you do it … it helps:), a therapist, a shauman, etc. Take a look. And heal.

 

Good Luck:)~ 

RECIPES! Can be Raw well combined Pizza and Bomb Salad!

Standard

So as Rande of Vegetable Centric Kitchen  pointed out today is mushroom day so  I have some recipes for you to celebrate (just one with mushroom though:)!

Can be Raw Pizza:

-Desired amount Portabellos (either grilled or  marinated in whatever desired)

-Tahini (raw or roasted whatever you have)

-nutiritonal yeast (opt but HIGHLY recommended- can you raw goat cheese or diaya if you like)

-tomatoes (the juicest ones you can find)

– other options include basil, olives, artichoke  hearts, spinach, avocado, etc.

Directions:

Take your portabello and de-stem it. Then mix tahini with a smidge of water and the nutritional yeast (if  using cheese skip that). Then spread it on your portabello caps. Top with tomato and other desired toppings. ITS SO GOOD.

I like olives, spinach, and artichoke hearts but thats a preference:).

Bomb Salad:

Ingredients:

-Desired Lettuce (I used spinach–loving it lately)

-Cranberries

-Green Olives

-Avocado chunks

-Any other raw veggie that sounds good but a good idea is spiralized cucumber and green onion:)

-Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, Stevia, Kelp Flakes (opt)

Method:

-Put lettuce in bowl. Top with olives, cranberries(cut in half), and other veggies. Add lemon juice and other flavorings. Then top with avocado chunks (keep them chunky it makes it yummy with cranberries). Then mix together and savor).

Tip of the day: Save your green onion white stems and put them in a glass of water and they will regrow fast!

Article of the day: Great one by Kevin Gianni on diet!

Lessons of yoga

Standard

Hey guys hope you enjoyed the simple recipes. I have two awesome ones coming up as well!!

I have been pouring my heart into yoga lately and it literally has saved my life. I’m not shy to admit I suffer with depression and struggle with body image a lot and it has helped me immensely.

I go to sunstone yoga and they are SO helpful and supportive of me everyday and I feel like I belong and it’s amazing!!!

It makes me want to do yoga.

It boosts my confidence and makes me appreciate my body and want to fuel it.

It makes me realize by modification to your level you can grow more!

It makes me see the benefits and re glory of rest.

It’s helped me see what my body can do.

It makes me crave cucumbers;).

And so much more.

I can’t emphasize enough the value of rest in yoga at the end and during your practice and honestly by doing a pose at your level you grow so much stronger.

Quote:

It’s a practice not perfection. It ebbs and flows everyday.

I hope you enjoyed me getting a little personal:).

Namaste ❤

Anyway I have a few things today first on the list … Yoga.

 

Where have you been my whole life I have fallen in love. A deep love. It is amazing. Getting personal exercise has been such a point of senisitivty and struggle in my life. First I hate it! Then with an eating disorder feeling like I have to but never did. I had so much guilt over it that food struggles got worse.

This went on for years. My whole family is an athlete and I feel like a failure cuz I am not one. Still do to be honest. I still hate exercise its a struggle.

But I found yoga. And for the first time I feel strong, flexible and I look forward to it. So yes yoga will be on this blog because it rocks.

My favorite pose has to be…

 

 

 

On my list to do is get my yoga certificiation. Not only do I feel physcially better but my depression has gone down a lot. I am by no means good or anything but I hope to be and I love it,
Hows exercise for you? Do you like yoga?

So after the blog over at Choosing Raw today I decided to do seven random facts as well….

1.  I love disney channel music. I am a geek:) It makes me happy.

2. I am thinking of going into child pschology. I love kids and helping people.

3. The country I want to visit most is Thailand. I want to eat a Durian really bad;).

4. I have been in a Sonic commercial. Wierd I know Lol:). It was awesome .

5. I write songs. They are usually very sad and are always very personal. Songwriting is my baby.

6. Being eco-friendly is really hard for me.My family could care less and it is a challenge.

7. I am starting to find my faith after years of struggle thanks to an awesome church.

 

So there you go. I am gonna tag….
