Wow, the last few weeks have really flown by in such a blur. Even with the boxes of copies of my cookbook in hand it still has not really hit me that it’s real. It’s as though I am making all of this up and I haven’t done any of this. It’s still living in my imagination. And yet, it’s all very real. I am having my book launch party next week at Reflections Yoga Studio (very fitting since my book is called, Yogi Eats) and the universe seems to scream to me: keep on carrying on baby girl. You’re on the right and perfect path. Keep doing you and just watch the beauty unfold.

I am relinquishing a bit of my control over how things show up and just letting it flow. It’s enlightening and awakening to have the opportunity to experience so much clarity at this point in my life. I mean, this time last year I was begging to leave the job I dreaded to start fresh somewhere else (and I did) because I was drastically searching for love (career-related) in a hopeless place. But it wasn’t until I got laid off from a job I really loved that I woke the eff up. My passions burst forth and voila my book was born and things feel so right.

A Yogi’s Kitchen

2015-02-05 19.43.18

Lately, I’ve gotten quite a few questions about my grocery lists, my kitchen, my pantry, etc. Basically, how in the world do you cook all those amazing things and where do you get them from? Honey, let me tell you it is such a pleasure for me to go grocery shopping. If you do not know this already I am in love with my kitchen and one of my favorite hobbies outside of cooking, is grocery shopping. Legit, I get excited to go to Whole Foods and Trader Joes. It’s my fave. But I know that I have a tendency to go insane because I do love shopping for groceries THAT much.

I know that for some people it cannot be an enjoyable experience. It causes stress and frustration and that is not the energy you want to put in your food. I feel that to create a loving, holistic and ultimately healthy life you have to approach this with ease and calm. To help you feel at ease, I’m sharing my kitchen with you. My pantry, my fridge. All the goodies up in there. Let’s help you make your kitchen a sanctuary for healing and soul nourishment baby. You deserve it.

Make It Happen, Captain

“Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.” ― Garth Stein

This quote really speaks to me as I think about all the things I wish to make happen and manifest in 2015. We are really in control of fates, the captains of our souls. We have the amazing power to become happier, healthier, abundant, write a book, paint a masterpiece, go to school, and more. We just don’t realize this awesome opportunity at times. We need a little shove. A little coaxing if you will.

What intentions will you manifest this year? How will you make sh*t happen and really give yourself the push to break through your comfort zone and grow? 2015 is your year. Your blank slate. Grab that paint brush and create your masterpiece.

Tune into my latest vlog about Manifesting your Intentions in 2015.

“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ― Anthon St. Maarten
