Vulnerability

It’s what makes us human. 

It’s what makes us feel alive.
It’s what brings the deepest connection we’ll ever feel.
 
It connects us with who we truly are.
 
It is not weakness – It is Strength
It is looked down upon – But it should be Cherished.
 
Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Not only around others, but even with yourself.
 
Cry when you need to.
See it as a releasing of the old to make room for the new.
Our bodies are filled with this energy. 
Let it out instead of 
storing it away.
 
There will be a flush of release throughout your body by doing so.
 
Be vulnerable around others. 
Choose wisely who deserves this part of you. 
It breaks down a wall that allows for more love, joy, and comfort to come in.
 
Everything is connected. 
We are meant to be connected to each other.
But we unknowingly refuse to feel it. 


Feel connected to those around you.
Let them see you at your lows.
Let them see you at your highs. 

You are meant to be around the people you are around. 

See yourself in these people and your actions toward them will soften and become more passionate.
 
We are all human. We all come from the same thing.
Be you.
It opens the ability for others to do the same.
 

Broccoli Date Beauty Bowl

Our bodies have a built in way to let us know exactly what foods we need….and don’t need for that matter.

Just as a dog, or any other wild animal, we too can instinctively know what foods are good for us in the moment and which ones are not.

It’s about tapping into those subtle signs, understanding what they mean, and then actually listening to them and correctly taking action.

Eating what our body recognizes gives it the ability to preform at it’s highest level. Giving us the energy we long for, soft clear vibrant skin, shiny strong hair, sparkling white eyes, a humming digestive system, and luscious restful sleep.

We tap into this inner knowing by slowing down.

Yeah I know, the opposite of what we want to do. Or think we want to do…

For me, I did this by switching my mindset around meal times. Viewing eating as more of a sacrid spiritual practice that feeds my body and soul, rather than seeing the time I spend eating as not productive and almost a waste of time.

My relationship with food has been on both ends of the spectrum, but now…

I chose to cherish the time I spend eating, as well as the foods I chose to eat, just as much, if not more than, all the other important high priority items in my life.

The foods we are important…

But HOW we eat them is just as important.

We are fed much more by the food we eat when we take time to appreciate each bite.

Healing our relationship with food is a beautiful thing.

It doesn’t happen over night. It is a practice and a lot of inner growth can occur as well.

The food off our plates is also vitality important and feeds us just as much.

Healing our relationship with food may mean healing one, or some, of those other areas as well.

A lot of the time we crave certain foods, not because our body actually wants them, but for reasons other than nutritional needs.

We may be craving fulfillment in other areas of our life such as

Relationships
Movement
The work we do
Spirituality

Be patient with yourself.

Set an intention and allow yourself the space to let it unfold.

This is what I am currently eating a lot. With different variations. If this is completely different from how you eat…baby steps. Pick up some dates the next time you’re at the store and try those out. They are little pieces of sweet heaven. Add those in to your next typical salad or just as a snack.

Dramatic changes don’t happen all at once…and we don’t want them to. There’s to much resistance when they do. Baby step your way into it…and it’ll manifest way quicker than if you try tackling it all at once.

Cucumber

Dates

Pecans

DRESSING**:

Avocado Blood Orange Oil ( this stuff is bomb. I received it as a gift last week, it is heaven. Slightly sweet and perfectly rich)

**You don’t have to use this dressing. Something simple like olive oil and lemon juice is wonderful. A mustard vinaigrette is nice as well. Whatever sounds good to you.

Keep it simple and try to make your own dressing to keep it as whole and unprocessed as possible.

***For those suffering from gut issues and low stomach acids, this is a wonderful meal to heal the gut, make digestion easy on the tummy, yet still provide a balanced filling meal.

Chew thoroughly 🙂
