If you want to develop a positive relationship with food & achieve optimum health that lasts a lifetime you must recognize your value.

self-hugsource

Whether you restrict food intake or overindulge, I promise that boosting your self-worth & recognizing your value will positively change your relationship with food.

Think of it this way…if you feel unworthy of success or love – you are less likely to take care of yourself. Meaning you will deprive yourself of food or over-indulge in foods that are not giving you the health & energy that you deserve.

We all have a story – something that made us believe we weren’t valuable. Maybe it was something your sister said to you when you were younger, perhaps your teacher made you feel stupid, you were laid off, or you were affected by a relationship. The beauty of life is that it continues and that you can re-write your story. You can recognize your self-worth and learn to care about yourself!

Somewhere along the way I had developed a belief that I didn’t deserve love. Which lead to a decline in self-worth. Which lead to dieting, extreme exercise and looking outwards for approval. For others, this leads to overeating and lack of exercise.

Whatever it is that you believe you don’t deserve: Love, Health, Success, Money, etc. Start today by saying to yourself in the mirror “You DESERVE ______” 5 -10 times. Maybe this sounds foolish to you and TRUST ME it did sound that way to me too when I started. But that’s because you don’t yet believe that you deserve it. You might cry, you might smile…but TRUST ME on this and start today.

Positive Affirmations work. And I’m telling you, YOU DESERVE IT. You deserve health, wealth, love & success. 

Have an incredible day, nourish your body, nourish your mind, nourish your soul.

XOXO

Protein Power Bowl {Vegan, Gluten Free}

by Katherine on April 21, 2014

This protein power bowl will not only have your taste buds dancing, but will BOOST YOUR METABOLISM and satisfy your appetite! It’s fantastic warm or cold, so you can eat it however you like.

PROTEIN POWER BOWL

Protein Power Bowl

What you will need (serves 2):

  • 1 cup quinoa (complete protein, 1 cup makes ~ 2 cups cooked)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chickpeas, cooked
  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms)
  • dulse seaweed (contains iodine which is used to regulate your metabolism)
  • 4 tsp raw unhulled sesame seeds (unhulled are an excellent source of calcium)

Tahini Soy Sauce:

  • 3 Tbsp GF Tamari
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 Tbsp omega-3 oil (hemp, flax, walnut, or a mixture)
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)

How To:

Cook quinoa in 2 cups of water on the stove or using a rice cooker (yes it’s smart enough to cook quinoa perfectly!). While the quinoa is cooking, lightly steam the vegetables. To prepare the sauce simply put all the ingredients into a small blender (I use the magic bullet).

In a bowl, scoop in cooked quinoa, top with vegetables, then chickpeas, then sesame seeds, then dulse & pour in dressing.

Simple. Delicious. Nutritious.

With Love & Health,
