oh, what a simple joy slow mornings are!
psalm 143:8 says, “let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life.”
how much freedom from anxiety would we experience if we daily brought our lives in submission to Christ? this question is as much for me as it is for anyone else who calls themselves a Christian. my tendency to too tightly clench my fingers around the circumstances I think I can control only causes stress, disappointment, and exhaustion. praise God that He is greater, that He is sovereign, and that He calls us to entrust all things to Him! it is far better when our lives are centered securely on the firm foundation that God alone can provide for us.

Pancake breakfast with berries ‘n cream and hot tea.
I never keep pancake mix in the house because I never really make them enough for them to not expire, but lately with all of our meal planning... I’ve had all of the individual components to make them in hand! So I have been trying several different recipes every so often. This one was... so-so, but tbh it’s so nice to have a dining room table and a hot breakfast so that makes up for it!
We are both sore from yesterday 😂 Nick more so than me, hah! But it’s so good to have this project done, it has been looming over me for months!

Fast, easy and delicious Greek inspired dinner or lunch 😍 Because eating clean makes me feel good!
This dish is packed with veggies & the right amount of protein to keep you feeling full. I opted out of the feta cheese but you can totally add some in. I choose chicken thigh for the protein because they’re cheaper, delicious and totally worth a little bit of extra fat for all the flavor 😋 Full details:
What you need:
2 mini cucumbers
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/4 red onion
1/2 cup chickpeas
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 lemon (or 1/2 lemon)
1 chicken thigh (5oz)
What to do:
1 - Chop up the cucumber, tomatoes, and onion.
2 - Mix the veggies, chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice, & sea salt in a bowl. Pour on a plate, top with the olives and set aside.
3 - Coat the chicken thigh with olive oil spray and seasoning of your choice (I like @fitflavorspices)
4 - Cook on a grill or stove top. (About 5-6 min on grill flip over and cook for another 3-5 min or until no longer pink on the inside).
5 - Add the cooked chicken to your salad mix and enjoy!

Tasting as you go is a very important part of the process.

Part 1 (of a 3 part series): You Have VALUE.
There is no greater feeling than pursuing your life purpose. However, in this pursuit, there will be upsets and triumphs. Timing and letdowns can be frustrating and heartbreaking, so in these moments, it is especially important to know your value.
We ascribe value to everything: friends, things, experiences, you name it! Things that we place higher value on become our priorities. Often, we value things over ourselves and find that we are easily persuaded and frustrated. This becomes the source of great unhappiness.
The concept of ascribing value is most evident in our purchases. For example, paying more for organic, healthy food is a reflection of the value some put towards physical and mental health. Ultimately, your purchases are a reflection of your values, and how you value yourself.
Knowing your value will change the way you spend money. Identifying purchases that don’t align with your value will cease when you know who you are and what is yours.
Valuing yourself first and ultimately making you your greatest priority will allow you to say no to the things that do not serve you. Having a holistic budget (budgeting into consideration your life purpose) is the cornerstone for setting into motion your goals and purpose. When you know your value, you no longer have time for the bullshit.
I invite you to join us for one of our upcoming public workshops, to learn how to create your own Holistic Budget. .

Weight loss vs. muscle gain meal ideas! 💪 *Swipe to see lunch, dinner & a snack idea* .
While no one meal will make you gain or lose weight, your meals and snacks for the day all together will add up to hit your target goals.
As a reminder, for fat loss you need to be in a sustainable caloric deficit. For muscle gain, you need to be in a caloric surplus. For macitence, you need to be at a a caloric maintenance level.
While that exact caloric number will be different for everyone, here are some examples to help you reach your goals.
As you can see for the weight loss meals, they’re not devoid of all complex carbs. While at dinner, I skipped the rice for cauliflower rice, at lunch, I still included the full sweet potato and just skipped the toppings that were in the muscle gain meal.
Additionally, I made sure I had plenty of healthy fats in the weight loss meals but still had a smaller portion than in the muscle gain meals.
More info below:
Breakfast fat loss - 2 eggs + 2 egg whites, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes + 1/4 cup mushrooms + 1/4 cup asparagus sautéed + 1 piece Ezekiel toast.
Breakfast muscle gain - Added 2 eggs, + 1/4 avocado, + 1 tbsp pb.
Lunch fat loss - 4oz chicken, 1 sweet potato, 1 cup broccoli.
Lunch muscle gain - Added 2oz chicken, added 1 banana + 1 tbsp pb.
Dinner fat loss - 4oz wild salmon, 1 cup cauliflower rice, 1 cup mushrooms + 1 cup kale sautéed in 1 tsp olive oil.
Dinner muscle gain - Added 2oz salmon, subbed in 1 cup rice for 1 cup cauliflower.
Snack fat loss - 1 cup strawberries + 25g chocolate
Snack muscle gain - 1 cup strawberries + 1 medium banana + 45g chocolate
