Self Luv

Self Luv

 

I made and tied this anklet onto me the night before I left for India. Almost 10 months later and it’s still goin strong.

It’s full of the water from 3 different oceans, Indian dirt, Hawaiian sand, probably some things I’d rather not know about, and a whole lotta love. It’s climbed mountains with me, been covered in mud with me, been to the bottom of the sea with me, been drenched in yoga sweat with me.

I was thinking it was so cool that something has stuck by my side for so long and been on so many different adventures. And then I realized that the same could be said for my body. What an amazing thing to inhabit bodies like we do.

So far my body has accompanied me to 6 countries, countless states and cities, and through every hardship I’ve ever faced. Such a lesson in self love. I’ve never loved myself the way that I’m learning to now. Your body is incredible. Just think of all that it’s done for you. All that it will do for you and the places it’s going to take you. Practice some self love.

Once softened add to the broth mixture and cook together for about 5 minutes (make sure it doesn’t get too mushy!!)

Pour in some soy sauce, and whatever else you may want! Green onions or chives and jalapeños work really well, or pretty much any vegetable you may have. Cilantro, basil, cabbage, sprouts, etc.

Top with lime slices and sriracha and devour!

 

A Different Kind of Resolution

A Different Kind of Resolution

So you’ve probably already decided on your new years resolution this year (maybe even on more than one). Lose 15 pounds, go to the gym more, eat healthier, stop spending so much money & start ACTUALLY saving; take that trip you’ve always wanted to go on, learn French. Donate to a charity, start going to church like you used to. Something cheesy about being happy every day of the year.. Well I’m here to convince you to change your mind and pick one single resolution (Which may help you reach most of those other resolutions I mentioned..). The resolution I’m talking you into is to waste less in 2015.

The average American produces 102 tons of trash a year.  Continue reading “A Different Kind of Resolution”
