You guys! This past Saturday morning I had the opportunity to hang out on TV and talk about my upcoming Resolution Wellness Cleanse! It was so exciting, and such an amazing experience. While I was there I made one of my new favorite cleanse recipes, and I shared an all-time cleanse favorite: Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie.
Heavenly Chocolate Truffles
makes ~60 truffles
2 cups full-fat coconut milk from a can (I recommend Native Forest brand)
600g high-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped (62%-72% dark chocolate recommended)
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp Grand Marnier
First, we make our truffle base, called a ganache.
One of the most common reasons clients come to me for health coaching is to help them create a healthy weight. It’s one of my favorite projects to take on because what I love most about coaching is helping people make positive and powerful changes in their life, and weight management is a biggie.
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is an absolutely vital step towards living a balanced and happy life.
But what I’ve found is that a healthy weight is not what most people think it is.
It's been nine months months since I've gone dark. In that time I’ve done a lot of healing and growing and finding. I’ve done a lot of living on that self-discovery/self-creation axis. I've been cooking again, eating cheese again, and writing again. I'm learning to be a plant mom. I'm starting to macrame. I'm getting better at turning off the lights when I leave the room.
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to see the sunrise.
I was up early to drive my boyfriend to the airport. He was flying off to climb a mountain. A big one. The biggest one in the continental United States.
Driving back, the sun was rising right in front of me. I was driving straight into the day, and I couldn't help but think about all the mountains we climb in our lives.
So if you read my last post you know that things have been in..uh..flux. A lot of flux. A lot of whoosh. A lot of growth. A lot of smoothies. A lot of love. I am so grateful.
Honestly? It's been pretty spectacular, in a bizarre sort of way. I feel like the wind is at my back. My creative drive is booming. My heart is bursting.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to write this email. It’s an explanation for my prolonged silence, and also something that I feel the need to share.
All of the beautiful people in my life (and there are sooooo many of them) have experienced some sort of heartbreak in their lives. Whether it is the loss of a partner or parent or child or dream.
