    Home Office: Eat Easy

    Feelin' Just Peachy, thank you very much! Easy foods that fuel my hustle today for breakfast: Peaches-n-Cream Smoothie + Peaches-n-Cream Overnight Oats. I like to use vanilla almond milk for my liquid in both of these recipes. So good! Of all the many great things about working from home and owning my own businesses (making my own hours, zero commute, self-reliance, full creativity… leggings… pets…) there is one big pitfall that nobody really warns you about: you might start to eat like shit. As in, forget to eat for half the day and then look up from your project in…

    #MondayMantra: I Allow Things to be Easy

    Lately I’ve been thinking about how often  we tend to make a task or project or process far more difficult than it needs to be. Do you ever get frustrated when:  You find yourself waiting in a long line and the person at the front is placing an unnecessarily complex order? Or… The person carrying out your service request is reciting back a time consuming list of company policies? Or… You are trying to find basic information on a website and it is nowhere obvious? Or… The assembly or installation instructions for a new product make NO sense to you…

    A Little Nourishment

    Mantra: I like to eat, so I choose nourishing meals that satisfy me! Here’s a tasty little something I whipped up in the kitchen that makes a nice light meal or a hearty side dish: Brussels Sprouts & Bacon. It was filling, sweet, crunchy, savory, easy-peasy and super satisfying. I don’t really measure stuff, I just kind of play with it- so the measurements are more guesstimate than fact. I also don’t actually count calories, but if you’re into that then this is pretty low-cal. You can always substitute margarine for the butter and leave out the bacon, if that…
