Therapeutic Check Mate

I would like to clarify that although my blog is intended to be peaceful, loving and centered, it may not follow the standard “kumbaya” vibe that I observe a lot of conscious folks often times portray. Life is not all meditation, reflection, observation and revelation. Not by a long shot. There are times in life[…]

Squeeze Me! (Sponge- Like Chick Part Duex)

Soooo, just like we have to be aware and mindful of what we are absorbing, we also need to be aware of what’s already siting in the crevices of our lives that is no longer serving us. Sometimes, sponges need to be wrung out and purged of dirty, stale, old water. The initial thought that[…]

Star Talk

The Universe we live in changes by the second, literally and figuratively. The planets, stars and every solar aspect reflects the energy we are exposed to here on earth. I have found great benefit in looking “above” to learn more about “below”.

Simple Recipe

Spicy Quinoa with Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups quinoa
3 cups low-sodium veggie broth
Kosher salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 small red jalapeno pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/3 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Add Checked Items To Grocery List

Directions

Put the quinoa in a bowl and cover with water; drain. Repeat twice; drain well. (This will help remove bitterness.) Transfer the quinoa to a medium saucepan over medium heat and stir constantly until the quinoa is dry, about 8 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 3/4 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer, then cover the pan, leaving the lid slightly ajar to let steam escape; reduce the heat to medium low and cook until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onion and garlic and cook until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Add the chile powder, coriander and cumin and cook, stirring, until the spices darken, about 1 minute. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, the jalapeno, sweet potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the liquid is almost absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Add the sweet potato mixture to the quinoa, then add the cilantro and lime juice and toss; season with salt.

Sponge-Like Chick

One of the big changes I’ve made lately is to really understand and be mindful of the fact that I am a sponge. Meaning, I absorb anything I am in close proximity to. Think about what happens when you put a sponge on a puddle of water. The water literally is drawn and almost forces[…]

Who Me?!

I do not allow my children to discuss what someone else did “to them” or that “made them” respond in a certain way. I also, refrain from blaming or focusing on anyone but myself regarding situations that may have been a catalyst for undue stress or upset. Once we focus on another person aside from[…]

A Stronger “Bat”

I’ve been doing some major transforming in my life and it’s happened in the most amazing space. My mind. I realized that a lot of my mind chatter was preventing me from living and being the best version of myself that I could possibly be. Sometimes we tend to be so comfortable (not happy) with[…]
