I love, love, love Mac-n-Cheese.  Like, seriously, in love.  When I was a kid I almost literally lived on boxed mac-n-cheese.  Fortunately, I knew how to boil water so I could make mac-n-cheese all the time.
 
Unfortunately, between the gluten, the processed “cheese” (let’s be honest, whatever that stuff is, it isn’t cheese) and all of the artificial crap in it made me sick.
 
So, I was determined to make something that wasn’t going to make me sick, that tasted delicious and that was as easy to make as the boxed stuff.
 
And here it is!
 
What’s Smart & Sexy About This Dish?
 
4 ingredients, very little cooking…basically, if you can heat something on a stove and press “start” on the oven, you can make this.
 
No gluten, no dairy AND tastes delicious. What can be smarter or sexier?
 
You’ll thank me later :)

What Swimming with Dolphins Taught Me About Life, Business & Money

I’ve been back in the states for a few days and have been attempting to put together my thoughts about what I experienced swimming with the dolphins….(see pic at the bottom--yup, that's me!)

There is so much that I experienced on this trip but I thought I’d share with you my biggest take-away from this “live life to the fullest” experience.

 

The Dolphins:

To put into words what it’s like to be in the water with wild dolphins swimming around you is almost impossible.

 

The way that WildQuest operates is that they go out on a catamaran each day looking for wild dolphins...and because they are wild, you don’t know what you will experience.

Wildquest believes we are in their world and interact as visitors. 


Like anything in the wild, sometimes you can find them, sometimes you don’t (even if you don’t, you’ll get some great time exploring the underworld through snorkeling)!

 

We saw dolphins 3 out of the 5...

Do You Have a Bucket-List?

(I wrote this before I left but in my excitement, forgot to post beforehand!)

Do you have a “bucket-list”?

 

Years ago I started calling it my “live life to the fullest” list as “bucket list” seems kind of depressing to me.

 

I love the idea of creating fun, memorable adventures in life so “live life to the fullest” seemed to be more fitting, personally.

 

AND….I’m getting to cross something off that’s been on my list for years.

 

May 31-June 5 I am going to be swimming with wild dolphins in the Bahamas!!!

 

I’m going to a place called Wildquest  that I’ve had on my list for YEARS to do but for whatever reason, never pulled the trigger until now….

 

Since I didn’t owe as much in taxes as I had saved I figured I would treat myself to this experience.

 

We’ll be out on a catamaran each day for about 7 hours looking for wild dolphins...

Tasty Asparagus and Brown Rice

Asparagus is an amazing spring-time treat. Sautéed with olive oil, salt and pepper or cooked over the grill it’s quick and easy to enjoy.
 
Among other things, Asparagus is great for:
 
* strengthening female hormones
* promoting fertility
* relieving menstrual pain
* easing constipation
 
* reducing phlegm and mucus
 
I wish I could say I came up with this recipe on my own…I didn’t. It’s from 101 Cookbooks.com  and, in my book qualifies as very Smart & Very Sexy…and..too good not to share.
 
The pictures were from a cooking class I taught a few years back. Everyone LOVED the dish, I have no doubt you will as well!
 
Note** When you cook the brown rice ahead of time, this dish is super easy to make and always a hit!

Why Things Haven’t Been Working Out For You

I FINALLY got gas!! YAY!

 

If you saw my last email, I mentioned that I live in Charlotte, NC and we were hit hard by the gas crisis!

I didn’t want to participate in the craziness of being in long lines when I really didn’t need to go anywhere so I just stayed put until things calmed down.

 

It was only 5 days that I didn’t go anywhere (I live in a city so I did walk places) but it’s funny what happens mentally when you feel stuck.

I’ve been hearing from women who have told me that they have been feeling stuck...in many areas, especially when it comes to their relationship with money.

 

If things haven’t been working out for you in your attempt to have a good relationship with money, I completely understand.

 

You see, a few years ago things were like this for me as well.

 

Thinking that going to Tony Robbins Wealth Mastery and reading books about it was the key to  healing this relationship, I dove right into...

What Does Abundance Feel Like?

I hope this finds you healthy and happy!

 

I’m in Charlotte, NC and it’s getting a little crazy here--If you haven’t heard, there’s a gas shortage on the east coast and trying to find places with gas around here has been like a scavenger hunt apparently!

 

It’s safe to say that the lack of an abundance of gas currently is creating some havoc!

 

Funny what happens when we feel the opposite of abundance…

 

Most of us going into modes of:

  • Fear
  • Overwhelm
  • Anxiety
  • Freeze 

 

preventing us from living the type of life we desire.

 

It happens with women and money ALL. THE. TIME.

 

When we feel like money and abundance is scarce, things get dicey (I’ve definitely been there myself!), which creates more chaos..which creates more scarcity….

 

And so the pattern goes!

 

In my last email I mentioned that much of my work now is going to be focused on helping women create more money and impact in...

Summer Paradise Millet

Are you looking to get out of your breakfast rut?
 
 
This quick and easy breakfast recipe will help you get out of your breakfast rut and feel energized!
 
And, in the process it will help to regulate your blood sugar levels, provide you with lasting energy and the pineapple and toasted coconut will give you a taste of summer-time paradise.
 
Often thought of a bird food and overlooked, I think that Millet is one of the Smartest and Sexiest of all the cereal grains.
 
In the treatment of blood sugar imbalances, Millet is the preferred grain. It also has the richest amino-acid protein profile of all of the cereal grains, the highest iron content, is gluten-free and can be either found in the bulk section of your local natural foods store or online (there are soo many great recipes you can make with millet, I highly suggest trying different things with it!).
 
The great thing about this recipe is that it is easily adaptable.  After you cook the...

Something Big Has Shifted

Something big has shifted - my focus in my work.

 

Things had been shifting for a few months now but the big AHA! came about when I was talking with a client that we had just finished working through money blocks and she said:

 

“I’m feeling confident and stronger. The abundance is not just in money as I thought; I thought it had to be in money but it's in everything around me & it's been an incredible feeling”



The thing is, I was previously working with helping everyone with everything. My focus was once to help people with ANY struggle that came to me.


BUT...what I started to realize was that….

 

 

  • It’s exhausting for me because I was trying to be everything to everyone in my communication.
  • There was a common theme with everyone that I worked with--everyone struggles with their relationship with money, which stops them from being confident in their business….so they play small (you’ve been there, right?)

Use This Simple Process to De-Stress!

In my last blog post I talked about the 5 different “bodies” we have and how using them for a framework can help you make quick changes when you are struggling (let’s be real, this past year, we’ve each struggled in some way!) so you can go back to your life, business, and relationships with energy and peace.

For a review, they are:


Physical body --this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything else. 


Emotional Body--this is the body we FEEL in. It’s the level at which we experience and store many emotions — happy, sad, guilty, or fearful.

Energetic Body-- this is the body of subtle energy flows—think along the lines of meridians and chakras (energy centers).

Mental Body-- this is our mind ~ what you think, believe, value, how you perceive yourself and the world.

Spiritual Body--this is your soul ~ the connection to God, Universe, or whichever higher being that you believe in.

I said I’d share some questions you...

5-Bodies: This IS a Game-Changer For Creating Shifts In your World

As life continues to shift and change and stress levels are at all time highs for most people I wanted to write this email to share something my clients are finding incredibly helpful in managing their stress.

 

When we are struggling in life, there is never just “one” thing that is the cause.

 

It is typically a variety of things but sometimes we don’t know where to start to find the answers.

 

A while back I read about the 5 Bodies framework (I can’t remember where, otherwise I’d totally give it credit) and have been sharing it with everyone.

 

This framework has been a game-changer in making it easy for my clients to create change for themselves (I'll share with you how my client Laurie used it to take back control of her life in a minute!)

 

The basic gist of it is that we have 5 different “bodies.”

 

We all know about our Physical body (this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything...
