Trip down memory lane

Recently my fiancé and I traveled home.

We revisited old neighbourhoods, favourite restaurants, friends, families, had endless get togethers.  Sat at the cafes, people watched. Soaking up that cozy, familiar feeling of home.

Not much have changed since we left 4 years ago, but we did. We grew older, wiser and little bit more in-tune with ourselves. We realized home is where we met, adopted our dog, put down roots, created life and our friends and family.

We were given an amazing opportunity to travel to the opposite coast to explore the world and ourselves as individuals. It’s been the most amazing journey and I could not be more grateful for it!

I’ve met the most inspiring people who challenged me to become the best version of me, accomplished my biggest auditions goals, stepped out of my comfort zone and continuing to do so and this is just a beginning.

But right now it’s time to go home…

Meal prepping challenge

Image

I’m a huge fan of food. Real food in particular.

This week I attended live webinar that was hosted by Angela Peters – personal trainer and a holistic coach (www.hol-fit.com) it was informative, educational and inspirational! She talked about meal prepping, cooking, freezing veg and fruit bath just to name few.

For the past month or two I’ve used the excuse that I’m busy, lazy or lack creativity when comes to cooking or even meal planning for that matter. In reality it’s far from the truth. I love cooking and I’m huge on planning. All I needed is a little kick in the butt and a bit of inspiration. Angela did just that.

I was introduced to Plan to Eat (www.plantoeat.com) which is simple monthly meal planning website that organizes your recipes and creates your grocery list. This website is full of healthy recipes that vary from raw, vegan, desserts to gluten-free and paleo options.

So I’ve decided to take on the challenge and commit to meal planning along with meal prepping for the week.

Why meal planning is time well spent:

-Setting aside full day for meal prepping makes the rest of the week less stressful
-My fridge is fully stocked with healthy goods, so when the cravings strikes I’m well prepared
-Saves money in many ways and there is no need to eat out
-Makes it easier to stick to clean eating
-I feel well organized and a proud Domestic Goddess

There are endless benefits of healthy meal prepping and if you haven’t tried it, the time is now!

Learn about it on your own, through Angela’s website, online courses. Just do it! You’ll thank me for it, I promise!

How would you incorporate meal planning into your life?

 

 

To be present, to be in the moment – it’ so important. So take time, be present!

I’ve been meaning to blog all week, but for some reason the words just weren’t there. But today? I have a few thoughts on my mind, nothing all that earth-shattering but I wanted to jot them down while they were fresh. I hope you haven’t missed me too terribly — can’t believe it’s been a *week* since my last post! 

On the #presence2013 project…

In a word, I’m finding myself equally surprised, stunned and amazed at what a little disconnecting can do. This #presence2013 project has already left a lasting impact — I shall count the ways here (in no particular order)...

  • My mood – 1000x less ‘stressy.’ My mind is calm, far less cluttered and a whole heck of a lot less “OATT” like than it’s ever been. You know big change is happening on the mood front when your husband starts a text message with…
