This slaw is quick to whip together, and packed with flavor. It's tangy, creamy, and crunchy, with an Asian twist. It's good enough to stand on its own, or as a topping for tacos, salads, or as a side for grilled meats and veggies.
If I were going to make a recipe to impress someone, it might be these savory salmon cakes. Forget healthy (and they are), these salmon cakes are just so crazy good. All the flavor, great texture, super satisfying. And yeah, super good for you, too. One of salmon's many health benefits is that it's loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce depression and inflammation. So if you're recovering from a broken heart, are super stressed, or just feeling kind of blah, eat this delicious mood boosting meal. Less inflammation also means you will feel better, mind and body. I've subbed almond flour for the usual wheat flour, so they're super low glycemic, gluten free, and protein-packed, which is great for balanced blood sugar. Stable blood sugar = a more stable mood (no hangries, please and thank you) and also a flat tummy.
These almond butter bliss balls are an easy make-ahead snack that's perfect for that mid-afternoon slump, pre-workout, or even a quick breakfast on the go. They're filled with protein and healthy fats to keep you satisfied and keep your blood sugar from plummeting (read: no hangries, or crazy cravings), and so tasty! I've added maca powder for some adrenal support, to help keep your bod and hormones balanced from all of life's stresses.
This drink is my new go-to. Creamy, comforting, and a little bit sweet, it hits all those spots in super healthy way. Plus I've added adaptogens to help your body manage the stress from a broken heart, cuz heartbreak puts some big ‘ole strain on the body. All it takes is some heating and blending - so easy you could make it every day. And since it's caffeine-free, you can sip it in the afternoon or evening without worrying about disrupting your sleep.
Because rejection is just. so. fun.
I feel like this has been the year of rejection. Small rejections all the way to soul-crushing rejections. And not coincidentally, also one of the most powerful years of my life. Not always the most fun (although there has been a lot of fun), and definitely not the easiest, but in a whole caterpillar into butterfly, beautiful growing pains way kind of best.
So. Maybe you're working hard to make some changes in your life, and things just aren't going your way. Maybe you were dealt a really rough blow, or a series of small rejections. Please don't give up! Try this. (From someone who knows.)
Letting go of who and what doesn't serve you makes space in your life for what does...When you know who you are, it becomes easy to recognize who and what supports and uplifts you, and the things that don't. The more you get to know yourself, the harder it becomes to accept and allow things in your life that don't serve you.
SO, WHY MEDITATE?
Studies are great, but I don't need a study to tell me why I should meditate. Observing to my own body, mind, and emotions are more than enough. (And yeah, if you google meditation benefits, you'll likely find all of these listed somewhere, just probably without the swear words.)
