Hi 🙋🏼♀️ I’ve been MIA becaauuseee I went to Mexico for a hot minute, for a dear friends destination wedding. We were able to roam around the island and try different authentic/ fresh restaurants. I didn’t snap most of my meal, expect this one- Black sesame tuna steak, sides with veggies, rice and onion sprouts.
No one else can define your own path to healing. Many times I've found myself giving in to others expectations of how I should act or respond or be. When it comes to true self care you really must care for your body-mind-spirit-soul. The whole package. This means forgetting the lies you've been told about the length of time it "should" take you to grieve & allowing yourself to go through it, as long as it takes. It also means rejecting the demands others places on you to "have it together" when you feel like keeping it together is hurting you worse then falling apart. When did we become a people who believe suppressing, oppressing, and projecting is acceptable? Where someones personal journey is wrong because it doesn't look like what YOU want. This is backward thinking. In order to heal you MUST experience the loss or pain. Grieving has many faces & for everyone those faces are different. I choose to smile and brush my hair and look for hope in dark places because it allows me something to hold onto when things are intense. This Instagram feed doesn't show when my dishes and laundry pile up everywhere or I'm having an emotional meltdown or my symptoms are so bad I can't see or read or drive. I choose not to share those things because focusing on the pain for ME worsens it- NOT because it's not there. If there is any lesson I hope to teach my son (and honestly if you know him- I think we can agree he's on the right track!) It is to speak kindly to others always because words can bring life & healing or they can bring death & pain. It is to love others despite what they have done wrong, how they look, or who they are. Love everyone and forgive forgive forgive. You may think you know someone and what they are going through but unless you reach out your hand you will never TRULY know. I watched grief in many forms today, through the eyes of several people. My doctor, my friend, my ex, me. All of our losses & pains leading us down different roads & shaping us differently. What else I saw was the clear cut difference between extending love in the grief and extending judgement. Love trumps all. Love is the precursor to peace. I choose love. I choose Christ.

Here is one of my favorite morning treats that literally takes less than 3 minutes to create!
There is no cooking time whatsoever and a great carb loader to fuel your day; along with serving of fruits, fiber, protein and even omega-3 fatty acids.
The best part?....nearly endless options and variations to conjure! Whether you enjoy fruits, nuts, granola or almond butter, the sky’s the limit for your creative combinations 🤯 below is one of my favorite combos to try.
☞ 🥣Food Item: Overnight Oats
☞ 🕓Cook/Prep: <5 min.
☞ 💰Cost: Approx. $15
➲ Organic Rolled Oats - ½ Cup
➲ ‘Silk’ Protein and Nutmilk - ½ Cup
➲ Almond Butter
➲ Chia Seeds
☞ 🌱Toppings: @FlavorGod 'Gingerbread Cookie’
• Step 1: Mix in Nutmilk, chia seeds, almond butter and honey into a mason jar or small cup/bowl. Stir a few times, the almond butter doesn’t have to mix in completely (swirls and chunks are encouraged, as well as a pleasant burst of flavor) 🕓: 1 min.
• Step 2: Add oats and stir a few more times. Occasionally press down with a spoon to ensure all oats are immersed in nutmilk (it should look like a mushy pudding, add a splash of Nutmilk if needed) 🕓: 1 min.
• Step 3: Cover and place in refrigerator. Go ahead, dream about your delicious morning treat :) 🕓: 6-8 hrs.
• Step 4: Wake up and garnish with fruits and toppings. Enjoy!
̃ ☞ 📝 Tips/Benefits:
• You can also try adding some of your toppings on ‘Step 2’; I usually make sure they are diced and/or thinly sliced to maintain a texture balance.
• Although other milk variations like almond and coconut milk work just fine, the thick and rich texture of Nutmilk works best for me.
• Benefits: Silk Protein & Nut Milk is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian. ̃
I found these #grainfree tortillas at Whole Foods, and they’re so good! Made from crushed chia seeds and coconut flour, these are low in carbs, and absolutely #paleo and #keto-ish. Helped take care of my grandma this weekend and she gives it two thumbs up! 👍🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tonight’s dinner - @jukianbakery Paleo Wraps found at @wholefoods, with shredded chicken cooked in the crockpot with salsa, and mozzarella cheese; fresh avocado, lil tomatoes, and sautéed peppers and onions. 😋 Super filling and very healthy!
Happy Monday 💓

🔅 1 Taza de Quinoa cocida. 🔅 1/2 Taza entre 🍄 y hongos ostra (opcional) Picados bien finos. 🔅 1/4 Taza entre: cebolla, ajoporro y ajo. 🔅 Sal y pimienta al gusto. 💧 1 cdta de Aceite de Oliva Extra Virgen. 💧 1 1/2 cda de Mantequilla de Maní. Usamos la de @lifechoic . 💧 Gotas de jugo de limón . 🎈1 cda de Salsa de Soja baja en sodio. La Tamari sería magnífica! . 🔅 1 Plátano maduro .
🔅 Vegetales picados en tiras:🥕, vainitas y 🥑! . .
💚 Para el Guiso: Sofreímos los hongos y retiramos a los 3 min. Ésto con la intención de que no suelten demasiada agua. En la misma olla agregamos los aliños, luego el ajo y a los 3 min la Quinoa cocida. Sazonamos al gusto y agregamos los champiñones seguido de la Mantequilla de Maní. Éste ingrediente mejorará la consistencia para el armado final. Agregamos unas gotas de Limón, revolvemos y apagamos :) . .
💚 Los vegetales siempre se emplearán cocidos al vapor para facilitar el cortado del rollo. . 💚 El Plátano se corta muuuuy delgado y se coce al sartén. .
💚 Sobre un plástico estiramos los plátanos y añadiremos las capas del relleno. Doblaremos apretando mucho. Cortaremos y a disfrutar 🎉. .
