Staying Balanced During The Holidays



Tis’ the season to be joyous, giving and enjoying holiday festivities with loved ones. It is one of my favorite times of year! Also it can be a time where I ‘admittedly’ get thrown off balance if I don’t take care of me too. Can you relate?! I am a giver, and naturally LOVE giving, it brings such joy to my spirit. Yet this can be a burnout time of year for many, as well as stressful. Especially when we overdue it.


So. I’m excited to share with you some remedies I use to keep my body and spirit aligned and strong. It’s important to keep our cups over-flowing :)


Also, as most of you know I LOVE to cook! It's one of my ways to give and express love to others. I added my latest recipe that is nourishing, easy and can be a festive dish to bring to a Holiday get together. I hope you enjoy- you may not have much leftover!

SIGNS OF IMBALANCE

-Feeling overwhelmed and exhausted most of the time

-Feeling depleted by work, a family member or friend, lack of sleep, poor diet, etc.

-Chronic headaches, backaches or migraines

-Irritability, anger and impatience

-Waking up exhausted even after a decent night of sleep

-More negative thoughts verses positive ones

-Feeling overwhelmed by plans and things that need to get done

…We all need to reassess where and WHAT we put our energy into from time-to-time. This is a great way to check in with yourself and start filling your cup back up!!!

HOLIDAY VEGGIE PIE RECIPE

Crust Base:

-1 small onion

-3 minced garlic cloves

-Seasoning, pinch of each: pink salt, black pepper and celery seeds

-1 1/2 cauliflower rice (can buy pre-made frozen)

-3/4 cup cooked quinoa mix (my little cheat! I like to use "Seeds of Change" pre-cooked quinoa and brown rice mix when I'm in a pinch)


*Saute onions, garlic and seasoning first for 2-5 minutes. Then stir in cauliflowers and rice mix. Pack in firmly into a stainless steel pan or cast iron skillet (my favorite for getting extra iron in your diet). Pan fry until edges are slightly browned.

Pie Filling:

-1/2 cup green onions (scallions)

-1 cup of thinly sliced carrots- use a mandolin for ideal thin cut

-1 cup of chopped broccoli florets

-1/2 cup chopped green beans

-1/2 cup chopped asparagus

-1 cup of spinach

-1/4 cup Veggie broth

-2 Tablespoons of butter or oil of choice (I prefer olive oil or avocado oil)

-Seasoning: salt and pepper to taste


*In a separate medium pan sauté green onions in veggie broth and with oil or butter. Next, add in all veggies (minus spinach) and seasoning and cover to steam for 2 minutes. Then add in spinach and cover again for another 2-5 minutes.

**Lastly, pour veggie filling over cauliflower rice crust and place in oven for 15 minutes at 350. Enjoy!!!


Always with Love, Freedom & Knowledge,
