While I was looking for a healthy snack recipe I came across this recipe "Chocolate for breakfast" I made it and it was great, at the same time it didn't seem right, I think it's because I had noor dates not medjool so I made some alterations to it. When it still didn't seem right I remembered that I just purchased some essential oils really pure ones that you can ingest so I added some peppermint essential oil to the recipe and presto... yummy chocolate minty raw vegan treats. Reminded me of those cookies you get from Girl Scouts.
optional if dates aren't sweet enough.
If the sun was green it would shine this color! This is one tasty smoothie. Sometimes my smoothies look like mud and sometimes they are beautiful and colorful like this one. Whatever the result this is full of phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins.

I am half way through my IIN studies. I can't believe it, I really can't so much has happened in such a small amount of time, I have learned a lot about different dietary theories and my life has benefited so much from this. Today I went on my first appointment to visit a Naturopathic doctor. If money wasn't an issue I would have gotten the works, but one step at a time. I feel empowered now like I'm taking my health into my own hands, instead of just waiting for a symptom and calling my doctor. My journey with IIN has left me feeling healthy, I feel like I trust myself better and I trust my diet. I also feel good that I have been helping and inspiring people, that is a beautiful gift.
I recently met an amazing woman named Jinnah who is teaching me about the benefits of essential oils. I bought a kit and I have already been able to help my dogs itchy spots. I used just a little coconut oil and some drops of lavender and a few days later, his itchy scaly skin has stopped itching. He still has a few rough spots but he is doing well, much better and more calm. I feel more empowered and less hopeless about his condition. I too am also benefiting from these oils I am much calmer and more relaxed. This is really just what I needed, more self-care so I can focus on things that are important like studying, my blog, my new business, coaching others, starting a family and preparing for my future at the Natural Gourmet Institute.
& cleaning my house and starting a garden too
& what about room for creativity?? Screams the playful me??
I guess I have to find time for that too.
