F O O D. L O V E & Y O G A
Today really was a sol-filled Sunday. ^
A bowl of sunshine .
My husband is 11 days away from his final surgery; where he will have his small intestine resectioned. No more stoma. ^
While he is still fatigued from chemotherapy and managing crazy neuropathy; he is mentally back . ^
There is laughter and dancing in our home again .
We have been doing some yin yoga to keep the circulation going . ^
Despite the biting cold here in the Midwest; we threw on our warmest gear and walked under the rays of light. Pictures of our day in my stories.
Then we came back to a warm home and enjoyed some peppermint hot chocolate with coconut milk.
To top the day off I made this soul filled inspiring soup by @grazedandenthused
Triple Seafood Chowder. It's loaded with happy notes of flavors. You can find it online. I modified it just a touch by leaving the sweet potatoes out. Jason cannot have any potatoes at all; too high in sugars that inflame his gut . And we are moving forward not backward. So for you low carb keto lovers this is a perfect soup. And AIP for me. Made with coconut cream for some healthy fat! ^
Here is to more sunny days even in the chilliest of times .
Where did you find your sun today? ^

When that Granny’s Kitchen make it way across the state line 🙅🏾♀️🤗🤗🤗💜💜💜 hot shower and my food logging off 🙅🏾♀️😊😊😊 #soulfood #soulfoodsunday
Six months ago you wouldn’t have seen me in a bikini. Acting the fool, well that is another story. 🤪😂I’m so happy to be comfortable inside my skin, playing with my kids in my happy place. ( The Ocean) I’m so grateful for nutritional cleansing for helping me feel balanced. Obviously in life and not at this particular moment 😂😂
🌕 Supermoon TOTAL Eclipse in Leo🌠
Let Me Hear You Roar. Now is not the time to play small, this is your year, this is your time, what does your soul need? The shift supported by this rare event are those in terms of relationships. Our relationship to not just our partner or friends but to our health, to our careers, to the environment we're living in, and our relationship to our self. Take a good look at your external worlds, is it supporting you or draining you?
The last two weeks where a time of deep reflection between eclipses where you may have felt anywhere from over energized ending in exhaustion 2 feelings of insecurities you thought were long past. No need to worry as these things are coming to the surface to simply be released in this time of the eclipse and Moon. These things coming up are not new, they're old and we have been working with them for quite some time; this particular cycle is a completion from February 2017. Take a moment to think what was happening in your life at that time, it will likely have the same kind of energy or the same kind of place within your life that you're working with right now.
If you have time tonight or tomorrow morning take the opportunity to journal and ask yourself some hard questions. As if there was ever a time that you're spirit's universally supported for change, it is now. Take the leap, Let Me Hear You Roar.

A bit about me: I am real. Don't get me wrong, I love beauty and style and all things girly... but I don't do pretend, I don't do competition, I don't want to be better than anyone, I don't do lies, I just want to be me. I think too much, care and love too deeply and I learned a while ago to just be myself. If I complement someone, it's because I mean it. If I talk to you, no matter who you are, I'll be real with you. I don't need the most expensive things, I don't need to try and impress people. It's honestly such a waste of time, and we only have so much of it. Truth is as much goodness as you give to people, they don't always have the same values as you. Which can hurt if you're not prepared for it. I remember talking to my dad about this recently (he's got the most wonderful soul) and he said, 'you can't let that change you, still be the person I raised you to be' and I would hope that I can make him proud. So as much as the world tries to take away your spirit, take always your smile, tries to get you to put your walls up or play into the games... rise above it and keep being you. That's what speaks louder in the end anyways. Plus those other kindred spirits need us to show our strength. If you're like this too- you're amazing, thank
You for being you, for being honest, for not giving up, and sticking through the hard times only to come out better and with more grace and wisdom 💗
Fun morning with impromptu catch up swims! #soulfood
-where our soul resides
Treat it like the temple it is
No fear or guilt,
only balance & Joy.
Love a healthy lifestyle
~~one day at a time~~
Feed your soul
with what it deserves.
Today I had a go at baking my first batch of mum’s delicious home made bread.
Will it get her tick of approval?... 🤷🏻♀️We’ll see when she gets home from work!
Take one moment out of the day appreciate your surroundings, your existence a breathe of fresh air or a moment of splice and tranquility ✨
Humans are very similiar to plants and trees...we grow continuously...if you find yourself being short stopped in ANY situation..a job,marriage,friendship,business deal...remove yourself immediately from the situation....it is dangerous to stunt your growth!
Food for the soul ✨The most colorful thing to ever hit my feed 🤣
A snowy day seems like a great day to stay inside, cozied up, working by the fire. Rusty and I couldn't get enough of this white stuff though. We took our time doing chores, much to the cows' dismay.
I have been busily working away, preparing to make my first appearance as a small business owner at a local wellness expo!
This also means that I will be accepting nutritional therapy clients starting in... FEBRUARY! Pretty darn exciting!
Today I had lots to do but BALANCE is key. I have been pulling looong days, working late and starting early. It has all been out of passion rather than obligation.
Even in passion, we must practice balance and mix it up, practice rest, and be rewarded for hard work + dedication.
After spending plenty of time out with the animals and in the snowy ranch scene, I painted some shiplap with my handsome fiance, watched some football and snacked a bunch.
Tomorrow I'll reassess my to-dos, see some friends, pick up my FIRST business cards and send some more proofs to the printer.
And if more snow falls and I wake up to another Winter Wonderland, maybe only half of that will get done.

The morning's poem. ⛰️
A snow flake falls on her nose.. 👑
• But somehow, it doesn't melt .. ❄️
• Astonished, she picks it up.. & yet, it still there.. frozen..
• 'Look, it won't melt' she exclaims.. 🕊️
• So she places the snow flake into my hands, just to find out.. •
• The once frozen miracle, is now nothing other than water .. 🏹
• Why couldn't it stay frozen with my touch.. •
• Better yet, why didn't it fade with hers?🕯️ ❔🔻❔🔻❔🔻❔🔻❔🔻❔🔻❔🔻❔
Once upon a time you were a little kid with big dreams that you promised you’d make real one day, don’t disappoint yourself baby 🍒
