Trying to view life from a place of abundance and gratitude is not always easy.
It is so easy to focus on the negative. To center our thoughts on what we lack. To get sucked in to the belief that there isn’t enough love, fulfillment, and joy in the universe to go around.
If anyone could relate to this right now, it’s me.
I have LOST A LOT this year. My grandmother passed away in February. My father died in August. I let go of a career that I busted my ass off to get, spent over a year preparing for, and studied in school. The business my husband and I built for the past three years slowly dissolved, despite our best efforts to keep it going. My car that I had since college crapped out on me.
I can sit here and feel sorry for myself, play the victim, and angrily question why these things had to happen to me (and trust me, I have done and will probably continue to do plenty of that at times). BUT I find that shifting my mindset and reshaping my point of view helps me realize that I actually still have a lot, and there is so much is still yet to come in my life. I am able to look at the positive side of these losses (no matter how difficult or marginal). .
As much as I wish Nana and Dad were still here, I know that they are at peace now; they are no longer hurting and never have to try and mask their pain again. Saying goodbye to that opportunity in my professional life opened the door was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, but it led me to find my true passion. We learned so much from the experience of literally growing our business from the ground up and no longer have the extreme stress, exhaustion and anxiety that came with it. I now have a car payment that I never had to worry about before, but I also safe and reliable mode of transportation that I didn’t have. .
I challenge you to open your heart and mind to an attitude of gratitude and an abundant way of thinking. You may be surprised by the impact. #teamaspireforhigher

Is anyone else looking out their window today at the snow - confused as to how were already at this time of year? 🤷🏻♀️❄️ All this snow has me looking back thinking about warmer times and wishing i could put my mouse ears back on! 🐭✨ Trying hard to tell myself lies this winter that i love me some snow. Let’s see if i can fake it till i make it. 😬☃️🤞🏼
Vegan Mac & Cheese for the absolute win. Yum. Butternut squash is my life & also I feel great cooking in season in the winter! I served with some steamed brussel sprouties
1 serving your fav pasta
For the vegan cheese Sauce:
1 cup butternut squash, cubed
1 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 slices @fieldroast chao creamy original slices (or your fav non dairy cheese!) Boil the broth and add the butternut squash. Boil uncovered until squash is tender and the broth has reduced. (If it looks like too much liquid, drain some of the broth before moving to the next step) pour the squash & broth into a blender/food processor & add all the other things. I tore up the cheese slices before to make them easier to blend. When well blended and the sauce looks creamy, return to the pot and add the pasta, stirring on low to heat throughout. Then serve!

Cuando estamos la mayor parte del día fuera de casa puede ser más difícil comer saludable, por eso, ¡llevate tupper!
La comida que siempre va a ser más sana es la que elabores vos, controlando los ingredientes que usas y como lo preparas. Para eso, acá van algunas ideas:
-Calcula el tiempo que vas a estar fuera de tu casa y cuantos tiempos de comida implica. Lleva alimentos suficientes para cubrir esas ingestas.
-Tené siempre una colación extra en el bolso o mochila, como un puñado de frutos secos o una bolsita de fruta deshidratada sin azúcar. De esa manera, si demorás más de lo previsto, no vas a pasar hambre ni vas a tener necesidad de comprar algo.
-Planificá con anticipación que vas a comer al día siguiente, y si te vas muy temprano, arma los tuppers en la noche.
-Buscá alternativas a las preparaciones tradicionales que te sean más faciles de transportar, en internet hay montones de recetas prácticas para llevar al trabajo o facultad.
-Dedicá una parte de tu día libre a adelantar algunos pasos (cocinar legumbres y congelar en porciones, cocinar arroz integral y guardarlo bien tapado en la heladera, cocinar verduras, preparar omelettes o tortillas al horno y guardar en porciones, hacer pan casero, etc.).
-Tené una botella reciclable con agua siempre a mano, la hidratación es fundamental.
