My ego made me do it!

Have you ever screwed up a situation because you were too big for your britches? We've all made mistakes, embarrassed ourselves, and said things that we are not proud of.

When we don't understand or accept our ego, it can quickly spin you into a spell of disconnect.

Don't get me wrong. Your ego will help you create amazing things for yourself and others.  The ego is human nature.

Never Good Enough

 “I am enough.” This is a motto I encourage my clients to use every day.

 

We all have one. Some of ours are bigger than others, some are more reasonable. We are born unrestricted of one, yet as we develop as a child, we grow one quickly. We rarely set ours aside for others, but assume others will set theirs aside for ours. It drives our physical appearance and our mental state. It is the source of much of our material success.

Healthy Nutella

This smooth and dreamy Healthy indulgence is my newest obsession! Soon to be your newest obsession.

Super-rich and creamy, this homemade Nutella rivals the decadence of that famous spread you find at grocery stores.This version is much lower in sugar (or it can even be sugar free!), is suitable for vegans or those with dairy allergies, and it’s high in Vitamin E, B vitamins, and healthy fats!

My homemade healthy Nutella version also has just half the calories of store-bought Nutella, and the surprise ingredient: black beans, which are loaded with protein and good for you fibre

Chocolate Chia Pudding

This Chocolate Chia Pudding has only six ingredients –chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla stevia, water, and salt.  Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.

This recipe uses stevia rather than maple syrup or honey to cut down on sugar. If you are not a fan of stevia feel free to use maple syrup or honey instead. And for cool, nostalgic look to the dinner table, scoop your pudding in tiny mason jars. Their small size, also pack well in lunches.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

One thing I try to do on this blog is alert folks to the sneaky, underhanded and frequently toxic chemicals that Big Food companies add to their products. One of these dirty little secrets is the fact that propylene glycol, a form of antifreeze, is added to commercial ice cream. You see, when you make ice cream at home, you immediately notice that it is as hard as a rock very unlike store ice creams (even the organic ones) that seem to scoop out of the container so conveniently. Antifreeze, then, is simply ice cream manufacturers’ answer to hard as a rock ice cream and the ice crystals that inevitably form as it is shipped long distances and moved between many different freezers before it finally makes it to your supermarket.
