Midterm Frenzy

While it seems like just yesterday that it was midterms (probably because it basically was) that time has come again. I only have 3 midterms this week, while this may be the most I have had in one week as an undergraduate student it will certainly be nothing compared to when I am in graduate school. I can look forward to having approximately 8 exams at any given time in the coming months. 

Joy.

Well at least for now I can take advantage of this time to breath a little!

Little trick for anyone in need of some focus—>Image

Try it you will absolutely fall in love as I have!

However, due to a slight change in schedule for the week I have not been able to make my weekly grocery trip so I have been scavenging the cupboards.

Some of my favorites include chia pudding for breakfast and also protein pancakes.

For the chia pudding:

1 cup almond milk

3 Tbs. Chia seeds

2 dates (pitted)

Cinnamon to taste

**Blend til you reach a nice consistency and chill in refrigerator over night. Top with favorite fruit in my case I did black cherries and kiwi and it was heavenly!

Protein pancakes were inspired by toneitup.com

I used their recipe and tweaked it slightly.

3 egg whites

dash of cinnamon

scoop of favorite protein powder (I used doTERRA’s Vanilla Trim Shake)

1 Tbs. almond milk

1/4 cup of oats

1 banana mashed

Mash the banana and add the remaining ingredients. Spray a pan with nonstick spray and put on medium heat. Pour some of the batter on and wait for the bubbles to form before flipping.

Filling:

I made a filling to add between the layers

4-5 strawberries

2 dates (pitted)

1 Tbs. natural peanut butter

dash of almond milk to help blend

Add all ingredients to a jar and mash with fork or blend if you wish.

Spread between pancakes and enjoy!!

 

Hope you like these recipes!

Exciting Changes!

Over the next few weeks there will be some minor changes to the layout of the page. This will mostly happen in the different tabs at the top of the page so that it will be easier for you all to navigate instead of one endless stream of posts!

Some of the different tabs will have more information on Essential Oils like the different qualities out there, safety in using them, the history and different uses. Also there will be a tab that will direct you to a place where you can purchase them from as well.

You will also be able to read up on my story and why I am on the journey that I am, as well as, some info on life coaching. If you would like to set up an appointment for life coaching I would love to do that for you. I am still a student in the program and just looking for some practice out in the field, therefore the rates would be extremely cheap!

Other than that you can explore some different recipes that I will do my best to keep updating consistently.

While I wish this is where I was spending my day, I am instead curled up inside on this rainy day working away with some hot tea by my side.

 

Hope your view is a little more like the one above! I look forward to seeing you all on the updated site coming very soon,

P.S: I just got back from the doTERRA East Coast Conference where I learned SOO much information on essential oils and the science of why they work so gosh darn good! As soon as my brain has had a chance to recover and process all the information I will be posting it here:D
