Heyyyyyy, Amazing People!

Please note the changes above for this week’s schedule for Tuesday’s sub and Saturday’s added class!

I hope this finds ya’ll well and you found some nice ways to slow down a bit.  While this week was most def busy for me, I noticed that it made a real difference to take time to be still and let go, even if it was as simple as driving in my car and releasing my shoulders or sitting in a meeting while allowing my body relax more into the chair.  These small moments connected together make a big difference in how we go through life.  I’m really enjoying making this subtle shift from pushing to releasing into the flow.  I hope you continue in your journey with this, too!  It’s such a process!

In the spirit of being mindful and trying to find balance in our busy-ness, I know that one of the indicators for me that I’m too rushed is that I stop cooking.  I LOVE to cook, especially with Marc Anthony belting out his tunes and a glass of vino.  Brings me a lot of happiness.  But, I simply don’t cook when I get too busy.  This is true because I normally take a long time to cook, being creative as I go and usually creating many dishes at once.  It’s also true because most faster meals don’t really taste all that good.  Sound familiar?  WELLLLLLLLL….My fabulous friend and career counselor, Britt, recently turned me on to Real Simple recipes, which are simply delish and you can make within 30 minutes!  Last week’s menu had vegetarian tacos with spinach, corn, and goat cheese.  I’m not always the biggest fan of tofu, but these were fabulously good!  Britt added some guacamole on top which made them even more scrum-diddly-umptious!  All I’m saying, friends, is that there are some recipes that work when you are a bit more rushed for time that still taste great!  In fact, they have searches you can do to include main ingredient, things to exclude, and different styles of cuisine.  Super cool!  Super yummy!

Alright, ya’ll, have a fabulous week breathing, staying in it, and try cooking for yourself!

As always, feel free to hit me up with any questions or comments!  I LOVE to hear from you! : )

In love and happiness (Al Green style!),
