Red Lentil Curry WOW Bowl

Snapseed 4.jpg

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons avocado oil

1 large onion

2 garlic cloves

2 tablespoon tomato paste

2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon curry

1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

9 cups chicken broth

2 cups red lentils

4 large carrot, peeled and diced

Chop onion and mince garlic. In a large pot, heat 3 tablespoons oil over high heat until hot and shimmering. Add onion and garlic, and sauté until golden, about 4 minutes.

Stir in tomato paste, cumin, salt, curry, turmeric, and sauté for 2 minutes longer. Add broth, lentils and carrot. Allow mixture to simmer, then partially cover pot and turn heat to medium-low. Simmer until lentils are soft, about 20 minutes. Taste and add salt or any of the other seasonings if you desire a stronger flavor.

Using an immersion or regular blender, purée half the soup then add it back to pot. This should thicken the soup while still leaving it chunky. This soup is delicious paired with a salad and could also be served over rice. So good and really good for you as well! I love it when they both win!

Video Series: Meditation!

In this video Jasher, one of my yoga gurus, explains the benefits of mediation. He explains the benefits to help us understand what we can gain from meditating.

This is a two-part series. This first video is about the benefits of meditation and the second one is about how to meditate. You can find that video below.

To see more from Jasher go to BEHOT.com

I also had a few other guests in this video!

Natalie Lynn with The Ripe Ruin https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGwR...

Kyle & Makenna Gott with Gott Love http://youtube.com/gottlove

They will share with you what they think about this meditation event on their own channel. Natalie sat down with Jasher to learn how about fear and mediation, why people are afraid of sitting with themselves and how to approach meditation if that is true for you. The Gott's will give you a real-life look at the behind the scenes and some insight to how they feel about being introduced to meditation.

Learn how to meditate with us! Jasher walks us through how to meditate and helps us understand some of the fundamental elements of meditation. There is so much power in meditation, it is life altering. It is totally worth your time to learn this art!

Great Music for meditation.

The Mountains

Grandeur

⛰ Grandeur = splendor & impressiveness. 
When we are influenced by grandeur it permeates our thoughts and the things we choose to see. 👓

Life Figured Out

Snapseed 70.jpg

I have a fierce desire to remind you that none of us have life all figured out. This yoga pose - yeah I figured that out, BUT it doesn’t mean I have all yoga poses figured out or all the rest of life figured out! 
That is why we are all here. We have stuff to figure out. AND it doesn’t do any of us any good to go around thinking that people - no matter who they are - have life all figured out. 
This is the beauty of life. The figuring out. This is what brings us real emotion and forces us to grow and gives us a desire to share and help others with the things that we do have figured out. 
So whatever you don’t have figured out right now, accept it as your next thing to figure out. You are not the only one going through what you are figuring out and you are not the only one figuring! ♥️ Sending love & reassurance that you can figure this out! 😘

Hope

IMG_6224.JPG

Doing my best to E..X..T..E..N..D....... these last days of summer. I adore it. I adore seeing my kids faces more, hanging with them and less on the schedule!! But...... I am totally looking forward to working on some things I have been up to lately! - 
To me it’s interesting how many challenges can be right in front of our face but at the same time to be excited about all the good. HOPE is a forever need in our lives. Do any and all things you need to to continue to renew hope in your life all.the.time! It’s what gets us through the challenges and helps us to create new. Looking forward to the next phase with tons of hope!

Not My Favorite: Utkatasana

IMG_6066.JPG

Chair is never a pose I do on my own accord. It’s just not my favorite, it never has been. Weird huh? Like of all the poses in yoga? 🧘🏻‍♀️ Here’s a secret though. One day my yoga teacher @lilmisslisajean taught me, that the pose you resist most is the one you need most. 🤣 Of course it is, right?


But you know, since that day I do this pose differently. Instead of resisting, I accept and it makes all the difference. I think I will forever “need” utkatasana!

Thai Summer Salad

FullSizeRender 133.jpg

Ingredients:

8 oz linguini fini

2 lbs grilled chicken

3 carrots

4 c chopped greens, washed and dried

2 c purple cabbage 

2 peppers - red, yellow or orange

1 cucumber

1/2 red onion

Honey roasted peanuts

 

Dressing ingredients:

4 Tbl soy sauce

5 tea sesame oil

2 Tbl rice wine vinegar

6 Tbl honey

3/4 c vegetable oil

1 lime juice & zest

1 c peanut butter

4 tea minced garlic

2 T minced ginger

1 bunch cilantro

1 tea kosher salt

4 tea sriracha sauce

6 T water

*I recommend making the dressing ahead of time. It’s simple but it has a lot of ingredients. There is absolutely no substitute for it, it is incredible.  It keeps in teh fridge well so I make a lot and use it for a couple weeks on salads and noodles or whatever you can dream up. You just add everything to the blender & blend and walls it’s done!

Cook noodles, rinse and toss with olive oil so they will not stick.

Grill and slice chicken.

Shred carrots. Chop all the rest of the veggies. Combine in a big bowl. Serve with dressing and top with honey roasted peanuts. CRAZY GOOD!

Positive Vibes

💫Surrounding ourselves with positive messages and vibes is absolutely necessary to keep our thoughts and 🧠 in a good place. 


I love how @glyderapparel encourages women to live life without limits and to discard the words “I can’t” from our vocabulary. I love their message to empower women. I am thrilled to be a #GlyderGirl 🙌🏼
