WOW Lunch Bowl

FullSizeRender 99.jpg

I made this recipe is for a single bowl. I did this to show y'all that its simple to eat at home for one for lunch or even for dinner. What makes this bowl a snap is to cook extra quinoa and store it in the fridge. Then you can just grab for it easily when you make the next meal, big or small! 

Times by the number of people eating if cooking for more than one. 

Ingredients: 

1/2 c cooked quinoa

1/2 c diced peppers 

1/4 of one avocado

3 Tbl sunflower seeds 

1 1/2 c spinach

Olive Garden dressing

Prep peppers and place into bowl. Sauté quinoa in 1 Tbl coconut oil and place over peppers while hot. Grab your spinach and cut over the bowl in bite sized pieces. Dice avocado over the bowl and add sunflower seeds.  Then drizzle with a little dressing and enjoy your delicious lunch!

A World Full Of Light

DSC_0518_preview.jpeg

"The brain is locked in total darkness, of course, children, says the voice. It floats in a clear liquid inside the skull, never in the light. And yet the world it constructs in the mind is full of light. It brims with color and movement. So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?"                                        

-All The Light We Cannot See

It's always been fascinating to me that the world we live in truly consists of what happens inside our own brain. Of how much it is ultimately up to us to create a world that we love, a world where we want to be, a world full of light. Go on my friends, create a space you love. I promise you have it in you.

Family Questions Game: Valentines

IMG_0667.JPG

This makes for such a fun night / activity to get to know each other better. There are some questions that are golden in this line up, like...

  • Explain to your mom and dad what you know of "their story" - how they met, stories from their dates, their proposal and marriage.
  • If you had to live with another family besides your own for one year, who would you choose?
  • What is the scariest thing that ever happened to you?
  • Have you ever been teased at school?
  • Grade your parents - tell them how they are doing - what is working and what you would like for them to work on.
  • What is your best memory with each other?

There is a whole list of them that you can print by clicking on the button below. You can print just on regular paper or you can print on colored card stock, cut in strips and glue a heart at one end and a popsicle stick on the other. It makes for a fun family dinner to draw them out and answer while going around the table. It's a great reminder to talk to each other about things that help us really know each other.  Ramp up the love y'all! 

Energy Bites - The Best Yet!

Snapseed 31.jpg

I am picky about energy bites. One of the things I get really picky about is honey backbite, if I can call that a thing. Does anyone know what I am talking about?  That backbite you can get from honey when the honey content is to high? If you feel me then this recipe is especially for you! These are the best energy bites I have made to date! Plus they are fast and easy to make. I always make way more than we need so I can freeze some for later. 

Ingredients:

2 c dry oatmeal

1 c almond meal or flaxseed or a mixture of both

2/3 c honey

1 c peanut butter

2 tsp vanilla

2 Tbl chia seeds

1 c chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze. When the bites are frozen transfer into container or ziploc and store the bites in the fridge. They are also good to make ahead and freeze.

♥️ LOVE- It's a Choice ♥️

♥️LOVE♥️


It’s a mindful choice. It’s something to put in place of other thoughts or feelings. Like fear, worry and stress. It’s a mindful choice that starts when you are alone with yourself and roars to life, if you let it, in the face of another emotion. It roars when you choose to let it exist when it’s hard to allow. But here’s the deal... if we practice love when it isn’t hard to love, then when it is hard to love, it is easier to get there.


Love this quote from my cute nephew. “Love is the only thing you get more of the more you give away.” Think about that for as long as it takes to for you to freely give it away.

Lunch: Keep It Simple!

Ok friends! Anyone sometimes get stuck on lunch? You’re alone, you want to keep it healthy but fast? This is one of my fav go to’s for a fast healthy lunch when I am by myself. My health food store has bins with dried soup.

Healthy and crazy fast to mix up. Think cup of noodles, but good for you. My pick out of all the flavors they offer is curry lentil. Super easy to make for just one person. It’s also great if you are going into the office. 
Just one of the great things about wintertime. Yummy soup!
