I’ve been so in love lately

Standard

With two things:

-my perfect partner
-my new juicer.

Haha!
Lately we’ve been working on extra ways to give to each other, and I’ve totally enjoyed the phone calls and sweet sayings while he’s totally enjoying his increased smoothies and love sandwiches after work.

But really one thing I think we can both agree on that improve a day: fresh juice!

This machine is awesome. I trow stuff in, endure the awful loud noise, and seconds later… I’m in paradise enjoying this drink.

I really did NOT think homemade juice would be this impressive to me, but boy… I am obsessed!!

Now that I’m done ranting about juice, more about relationships.

A couple months ago I made a clear distinction in our relationship. This would be a place for me to give, and not a place to take.
This distinction has to me improved the way I feel more and more everyday, when you start looking into a relationship to give, things change. You are no longer depriving the relationship, you are expanding it.
And with both partners with the main focus on giving, you cannot even imagine the vast amount that both receive.

What about you, have you made distinctions in your relationship which have totally increases the level of energy, love and passion you feel?

Give this one a try: simply begin to approach your relationship to give. Be a giver, and do not take or expect… Simply allow the other to follow the bandwagon to years of happiness!

This can also be very beneficial in other relationships such as work, family, and friends!

Thank you for reading. Have a great day, I love you all!

Victory Tea- A wonderful reward

Standard

Thursday night:

Exhausted, still over 3 hours to go on this biology thesis

Relax, take a bath, back to reality of the computer calling me

A little inspirational music to keep the time ticking quickly and get the words down quick

and then, a miracle…

I stare over my finalized 7 page deal, there- I exclaim.

It’s 12pm, I’m exhausted but I really want to reward myself for all this hard work, after all this paper kicked my butt!

I run downstairs, reach for my favorite tea: Tazo Passion

And pour water into my mustard colored tea-kettle, the whistle wakes me up a little, and I pour the water, and steep my tea.

Then, I go back upstairs, and drink slow sips of my tea sweetned with Amber Agave, and think about my life goals some,

Finally I doze of to sleep and wake up all over again with my morning incantation!

Remember for any goal: It’s 80% why you want to achieve it, and 20% how you’re going to achieve it!

Vegan & Healthy: Peanut Butter cookies

Standard

These yummies are super sweet and chewy!

No-one will ever dislike vegan cookies again…

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies: (recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie)

-1/2 cup Organic peanut butter

-3/4 teaspoon Baking soda

-3 tablespoons Whole wheat flour (it’s three tablespoons, you won’t be able to tell the difference relax!)

-1/4 cup sugar

-2 tablespoons applesauce

Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, when you take them out they won’t look quite done, that’s normal, let them sit on the cookie sheet until cooled, and they will be perfect!

Enjoy your vegan cookies! And hopefully this success will lead you to many more success with vegan cookies!

Daily Apple Cider Vinegar tricks!

Standard

Everyday, when I first wake up, and right after my morning incantation, I drink my alkalyzing beverage: Apple cider vinegar in water.

Here are a few other ways to keep Apple cider vinegar close during the day:

-Drop a few drops in your water bottle to take to work and stay 3 times more hydrates than just regular water

-Make your own salad dressing: juice of one orange, teaspoon apple cider vinegar, teaspoon Grapeseed oil, salt & pepper.

-drip apple cider vinegar on a washcloth and wash your hands using it as an anti-bateria soap.

-mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to 1/4 cup dried clay to make a face mask-Amazing results

 

Sounds like you need to go to the store and buy a gallon bottle!

Remember it’s important for these purposes for your apple cider vinegar to be: raw, unfiltered, and “with the mother” or “living strands”.

 

Stay alkalized!
