When one door closes another door opens…well let me open some windows and let the universe in, because I’m here!

Day 9-11 and feeling fine with veggies and fruit with a low intake of fats mostly coming from nuts and seeds. I have been active in hiking and running. I am finishing up my last week of Insanity! I have been thinking about doing a few more weeks of Insanity just because you truly do become addicted to the workouts. Having high energy levels allow me to take my life to the next step. Which has become second nature to me lately because I have stopped worrying if this way of life is for me or what someone will think of me…guess what if you are feeling this way about anything….hold up and STOP THINKING AND START DOING.

Here’s what it takes to make nut milk:

Almonds ( Best when soaked over night in a bowl of water)

Water

Sweetener/flavorings if desired (Like a vanilla bean)

A blender (regular or high speed)

After blended drain in cheese cloth and save the nut pieces for other recipes!

Another food find was Yucca, or cassava, a Latin American root vegetable similar to potatoes. What is amazing about this round tube is that it is gluten-free, it can replace wheat flour and it is used by people with wheat allergies.I was introduced to cassava by my boyfriend’s Brazilian mom, she makes amazing dishes and the other night was with cassava root. There are many different ways you can prepare this root. A great way to have this would be to boil the pieces and mash them smooth with sage and basil.

There are so many new things opening up to me and I am embracing every moment the universe is giving me. I am surrendering to the universe to allow my dreams to come to me.
