PUMPKIN PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Fall = pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!

And in Florida, it has FINALLY felt like fall! The air has turned crisp (with NO humidity – YAY!) and I’m burning yummy candles and essential oils to match the season. I’ve also pulled out my favorite scarves, dusted off my fun boots and ready to go to pumpkin patch.

I’m slightly addicted to pumpkin flavored or smelling anything! So, in honor of one my favorite seasons, I decided to shake things up with my normal daily shakes.

And I’m actually going to give you two different variations with similar ingredients!! So here goes …

PUMPKIN PIE PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Ingredients
¼ cup water
1 cup ice
¾ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Vegan Shakeology with superfoods)
½ cup canned pumpkin puree, unsweetened
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. pure organic maple syrup (or raw honey)
1 Tbsp. coarsely chopped raw pecans

Instructions
Place water, ice, almond milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, pecans, pumpkin pie spice and protein in blender.
Cover; blend until smooth.

TIPS

↠ Although maple syrup is a healthier, natural sugar, feel free to reduce the amount or remove altogether if you are moderating your sugar intake.

↠ If you don’t like the taste of pecans, feel free to substitute with almonds or remove.

↠ After blending, feel free to add a little more water if it comes out too thick.

PUMPKIN SPICE PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Ingredients
¼ cup water
1 cup ice
¾ cup unsweetened almond milk (plain or vanilla)
½ cup canned pumpkin puree, unsweetened
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use Vegan Shakeology with superfoods)
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg

Instructions
Place water, ice, almond milk, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg and protein in blender.
Cover; blend until smooth.

TIPS

↠ After blending, feel free to add a little more water if it comes out too thick.

Please note: I take a hard anti-soy stance and will never recommend soy milk or any protein powders that use that as the protein source. I feel that soy consumption increases estrogen, decreases testosterone, and slows metabolism, making it counterproductive to your fitness/health goals.
I hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Smoothies! Please let me know which one you try (or both!) and leave a comment below! Any questions, I’ll be happy to help!

Project Sahara Kickoff

Today is my birthday.

Best way to start it is with this amazing man by my side on the beach.
We prayed, appreciated the beauty of “The Painter” and kicked off my Project Sahara!

Today, I decided to draw a line in the sand _____________ literally.

I  made a vow to let go of the ONE thing that was truly holding me back. A promise, to go on a deep inward journey by relying on my inner strength and leaning more into God’s promise.

I decided to give this personal project the name Project Sahara because it’s positioning myself in a place of solitude. Walking through my own “desert” that is the natural extension of the inner silence of the body … in order to grow and flourish within the “oasis” I create by truly tapping into my full talents … those God-given gifts! {woah, just got deep!}

This line in the sand signifies being set FREE of any chains or crutches that held me down and dimmed my light. It’s not going to be easy, it’s the road less traveled, but it’s going to be marvelous because of how its already shaping me!

Because what makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

Although I’m not ready to share {full} details, I’ll share some highlights for now:
↠ I’m drawing a line in the sand with myself
↠ I’m drawing a line in the sand with bad habits
↠ I’m drawing a line in the sand with negative people
↠ I’m drawing a line in the sand with “needing approval”
↠ I’m drawing a line in the sand with limiting beliefs

To “formalize” this project and have a daily visual reminder of my promise, I ordered a customized bracelet with the words “PROJECT SAHARA” on it. Eeeeeeek! I seriously got butterflies in my stomach when I saw the FedEx guy pull up to deliver it.

I don’t know about you, but when you put something in writing – whether on paper, stone or metal – it just comes more alive. More real. And definitely more of a commitment.

I’m nervous, yet more excited.

I’m not gonna lie. I’m full of a mix of feelings … excitement, determination, bravery with a dash of nervousness and doubt!

But I think that’s TOTALLY normal when we are about to embark on a special journey. And something we KNOW we’ll come stronger on the other side.

Change is never easy.
But our FOCUS should be on what we WANT more of.

To remain the same?
Or to know we truly overcame?

Discipline in the right direction is HARD.
But so is staying stuck in a rut.
So we must CHOOSE our {hard}.

Where do you feel you’re stuck?
Identify it.
Then make a decision to change it.

And as you can tell, I like to give myself words of intention toward a particular project. So choose a THEME word (or words) to help YOU focus not that specific goal towards your unique transformation.

And hey … if you’ve been ready to commit to something as well and would like to create a similar bracelet with My Intent Project and get $5 off, click here.

p.s. I am NOT affiliated with this company. I just happened to stumble on them online and liked what they’re doing!

This is a time for discipline, creativity, self-reflection, self-motivation, inner-transformation and a chance to see what I’m REALLY made of!

It’s time to really wear my wings with honor. 

p.s. Stay tuned, as I’ll be updating you on ALL the details of Project Sahara!

TO MY MISFITS OUT THERE – THE ONES WHO FEEL THEY DON’T “BELONG” – I GET YOU

“Free Your Inner Misfit.”

Sometimes on the road to self-growth, enlightenment and success … we have to walk alone. However, there’s a difference between walking alone toward something and feeling alone.

I wanna ask you. Have you ever felt that you were someone “outside looking in?”

For me, this has been an on-again, off-again sentiment throughout my life. Although it never stays for good, it does stays long enough to feel misplaced, which ultimately influences me to go inward and evaluate.

Lately, this feeling has been on again. And last week, I took a time out to reflect and journal. During this time, I ended up researching this idea of “outside looking in” to see if there’s anyone else out there feeling the same way.

And you guessed it … I’m NOT alone. Which means if you’ve ever felt this way, you are not either.

I’m not going to lie. This is one of the strangest feelings I’ve ever experienced. And it’s just recently that I have really started trying to understand it.  It’s knowing that you’re doing well but still feeling out of place. It’s feeling that you belong yet you don’t – it’s knowing that your presence is there and people are surrounding you, yet you feel as though you’re a “misfit” and “outsider” just passing through…

No matter what you do to “get rid of it”, the feeling will stay for however long it pleases. Unfortunately, it’s not something you can just push out, you don’t know how to really get rid of it, and it’s not something you can just shake off.

I bet you’ve probably been told plenty of times that you’re “just fine,” to “just think positive” that “people love you” all while the person providing this advice just regurgitates a bunch of cliché life quotes that will magically make you feel better.

Don’t worry, I won’t do that to you.

Sure, it’s important to think positively overall in life, however, we must feel the uncomfortable emotions to learn, grow and evolve.

As mentioned before, the good news is that this feeling doesn’t stay forever. But when it does come from time to time … it’s just so bothersome. Makes you questions yourself and bring about self-doubt.

Therefore, I want to help provide you some insights to my recent research and self-reflection on this “on again” experience with this odd outsider feeling.

The Four Categories of Misfits

Misfits are usually individuals who have a sense of detachment from the world because of their emotional, spiritual and mental makeup. They generally have an increased awareness and sensitivity, usually have different priorities and a way of thinking, while pursuing goals that are different from the masses.

They go agains’t the grain in a good way. Therefore, don’t be despaired! There’s a bright side to being a misfit! And they are highlighted in the four categories below.

  1. Old Souls

    Many people associate with being an “old soul” are thought to have the habits of an older person or those individuals who would rather be in bed by 9 p.m. than go out and party. Although this is sometimes the case, actually being an old soul shows a level of maturity much higher than expected for their age and are classified as people who excel in intelligence and/or sensitivity. Old souls often feel like they don’t belong here, especially when growing up because being passionate about unpopular things may make others pick up on your differences. And this can be painful in your awkward childhood and teenage years, making you feel like a misfit who doesn’t have a place in this world.

  2. Deep Thinkers

    Deep thinkers pause from the fast-moving, automated and technologically centered world to ponder what truly matters in life. They ask the big philosophical and spiritual questions like the meaning and purpose of life. Many deep thinkers are reserved, quiet and introverted. They prefer to slow down, take the time to reflect … and consider their actions, the world, and their place in it. Sadly, the society we live in is giving more and more importance to superficial, material and instant gratification. That’s why seeing people chasing transient goals and being interested in meaningless things can be so disappointing. And often times makes you wonder what you are doing here, among these people … basically feeling like you come from another world all together.

  3. Empaths

    The trademark of an empath is feeling and absorbing other people’s emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities. They filter the world through their intuition and have a difficult time intellectualizing their feelings. Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually attuned, and good listeners. If empaths are around peace and love, their bodies assimilate these and flourish. However, on the flip side, any negativity – through direct or indirect experiences (think news or 3rd parties) can be so internalized that it often feels assaultive and exhausting, provoking bouts of depression and/or a sense detachment.

  4. The Enlightened – or those on the path

    There is so much varying opinion on what being spiritually enlightened or awakened really means. However, based on what I have learned so far along with my own personal experiences, for me it comes down to trying to attain as much balance as we can between our mind, body and soul. It’s using our third eye for guidance, leaning into God daily, and shining our own inner light. Keep in mind, there are varying degrees in enlightenment, however, it’s about a daily intention. Usually people who are enlightened share these characteristics: ability to live in the moment, have an integrated personality, sense of oneness with life, sense of oneness/connection with God, and omit a calm, loving and radiant energy. So as one becomes is working within on attaining these characteristics or practices … they can start becoming more alienated from those who are not.

To close out my thoughts, I’ll get vulnerable and share with you the poem I wrote last week. Here goes (gulp).

And in the meantime, I would love to hear if you’ve ever felt like you didn’t belong? If you’ve ever felt like the person outside looking in? And if you have, you can see you’re not alone and you have many beautiful gifts to help you carry out your life purpose!

 

REFLECTIONS OF THE GIRL OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

Sitting here, all I hear is indistinctive chatter.

With the occasional burst of laughter piercing through.

But all I hear is nothing new.

 

I hear my thoughts compete with the crowd.

I hear myself talking me out of the ugly cry.

Asking myself why oh why.

 

Is it me?

Do I repel?

Or deep inside am I not well?

 

So much to be thankful for.

Yet from time to time,

I wonder if I’m destined for more?

 

But what is more?

It’s not riches or fame,

But to know the reason I’m made!

 

My purpose.

My drive.

The reason I’m alive!

 

Since being just a little girl,

My thoughts have always been,

The foreign girl “outside looking in.”
