100 things






Back in 2014 I came across a 100 things challenge and loved it.  It involves getting rid of 100 things per month.  I'm thinking at this time of year when society and media is convincing us to pack our homes to the hilt with more stuff, maybe we shouldn't.  I know, I know what a terrible time to do this Janet.  I myself have been adding to my Christmas and birthday wish list quite excitedly.  But maybe we can be thoughtful about this challenge.  Maybe we can look in drawers, cupboards and closets and donate the things we no longer use.  Perhaps a warm coat or boots that no longer fit.  Would they be better off in another home?  What about kitchen gadgets that sit and gather dust?   Lets be rebels and get rid of things.  This is my original post of 100 things to read.  Can you get into this right now?  I can.  xo

grateful


I wanted to pop in and not only wish you all a happy Thanksgiving but to also thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love, prayers and support.  You truly have no idea what it has meant to me.  It has lifted me on days I didn't think I'd make it.  In all my years of writing this blog I never could have ever imagined how important it would become to me.  It's because of you dear friends.  I'm grateful to know you.  Our day has been quiet, just the two of us.  My heart is bursting with love and acceptance today.  Hope yours is too.  xo

snacks





Between meals have always been hard for me no matter what I'm eating.  I'm the kind that needs to eat smaller meals but more often throughout the day.  This smoothie works wonders and this is how I make it.

In my Vitamix ...

1 cup plant milk
1 frozen banana
1 Medjool date
2 cups fresh spinach, kale or greens
1 heaping Tablespoon unsweetened cacao powder
1 Tablespoon peanut butter

If I'm not really hungry, I'll leave out the PB.

I make many variations on healthy smoothies but lately this is my favorite.

lunch



This is a pretty typical lunch for me these days.  Nothing fancy.  I start with a big layer of greens such as arugula, which is a cruciferous vegetable.  Then I start layering whatever is in the refrigerator.  In this case it was leftover rice, white beans and corn.  A little salsa, avocado and a drizzle of hot sauce.  Yummy and filling.

Another tool I'm using is Dr. Gregors Daily Dozen App for my phone.  Just search in the App store for it, it's free.  It tracks how you are doing on getting the most nutritious foods each day.  Dr. Gregor has listed his Daily Dozen foods we should all be eating for optimal health along with exercise and vitamins.  If you need help staying focused and accountable, I highly suggest you give it a try.

breakfast



Hi lovelies.  I've decided the best way to show you how/what I'm eating is to just snap photos of each meal I'm about to eat.  No real styling involved.  This way you'll see I'm not doing anything fancy with this food.  It's all unprocessed and EASY!  I'm eating this bowl of oatmeal in bed this morning!

Overnight Oats - My FAVORITE Breakfast

1/2 cup Oats
1/2 cup Almond Milk (your choice - mine is homemade)
1/2 cup Frozen Blueberries
1  teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Flaxseed Meal
1-2 Tablespoons Slivered Raw Almonds

Combine everything in a bowl except the almonds and refrigerate til morning.  Sprinkle Almonds on and Enjoy.
