Roundup #2

Weekly RoundUp 2

Here is the 2nd edition of my Weekly RoundUp, sharing with you all things Nourishing to the Body and Inspiring of the Soul! I hope you enjoy it:

vegan enchiladas

1. Vegan Enchiladas – SO good!

I have been playing around with and trying out different recipes for years, and this is by far one of my absolute favourites! To be honest, every recipe I’ve tried from Angela Liddon at Oh She Glows have been delicious.

But these enchiladas are something else. They are hearty, filling, full of healthy ingredients, and they’re vegan! Any meat-loving friend or family member that I have made these for, have raved about how good they are.

Angela originally posted this recipe back in 2011, which is the one I’ve been making for years: Vegan Enchiladas.

She has since posted a new version of this old classic, with a few changes. I can’t wait to try this version next!

You might also want to check out Angela’s new Oh She Glows Recipe App in the AppStore. It’s absolutely gorgeous! It’s $6.99 to purchase, but it’s a place where Angela is constantly updating with new recipes that are exclusive to the app. Think about it as buying a cookbook e-book, that’s constantly being updated with delicious goodies!

Quote Don't be in a rush to figure everything out. Embrace the unknown and let your life surprise you.

2. Quote – Helps me Release & Surrender

I’ve been using this quote during my meditations lately. I am completely guilty of stressing often trying to figure my whole life out, trying to pick the right path, trying to have control over it all, and becoming frustrated when I don’t have all of the answers. I’m sure I’m not alone with these feelings, so I thought I should share this quote with you as well.

When I came across this quote a couple of weeks ago, something inside me just clicked. It was a friendly, gently reminder to: Relax. Let It Go! Look Forward To The Surprises 🙂

This is definitely not easy to do, especially being a strong Capricorn woman like myself… but this concept is something I’m now trying to practice in my thoughts daily. I tell myself: “Everything will be all right. Try your best. Be a good person. Give a helping hand to others. Come from a place of Love, always! Everything will work out exactly the way it is supposed to… and some things may pop up that you never saw coming and could have never prepared for (good and bad). This is life. Be excited for and recognize the good ones that surprise you! Show gratitude. Relax. Breathe. You’re doing the best you can” 

Greens +O

3. Genuine Health – Greens+O 

I’m sharing this with you, because I am so in love with how I feel when I drink it. I feel energized, clear minded, and I know my body is nourished.

I will drink this when I don’t have time to make a fresh greens juice. It has an alkaline effect on the body, which is a great way to start off your day as most of us tend to be acidic (due to diet, stress, environment, etc). When your body is in a more acidic state, then we are prone to sickness and weakened immune systems. 

This product is made up of a blend of health-promoting ingredients. You can read more about it here. (Note: I do not work for this company, nor have I been asked to review their product. This is my honest opinion based on using the product for the past year, and I think it’s Fantastic!)

I personally drink the Greens +O * version (in acai-mango), as this version has had common allergens removed. It is dairy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan. You can add a scoop to plain water, to your smoothies, or incorporate it in a raw recipe!

Food Matters TV

4. Food Matters TV

This is like Netflix of the health and wellness world. Literally. So cool.

How it works: You pay a monthly fee (at the time of this post it was $9.95/month), and you have access to full length health and wellness documentaries, video recipes, and yoga and pilates videos. You can watch it on your phone, on a tablet, on the computer, and even through some newer versions of Apple TV.

You can even try it out for free for 10 days! I am not paid by this company to endorse this product at all. Simply I just wanted to share this with you incase you hadn’t heard of it before and you might be missing out! I’ve had my subscription for a couple of years now, and love the easy access to all of this great information.

How I use it: I often check out the recipes, or do a yoga class. But I also love to gather a group of friends or family together for a movie day, and watch one of these educational and inspiring documentaries with them. I strive to help everyone around me to be as informed as possible on how to be the healthiest version of themselves they can be. It makes me happy that I can help facilitate this.

spring water

5. Natural Spring Water

Making sure that you’re drinking enough water daily is the first priority when talking water consumption.

Avoiding plastic bottled water is important, unless you’re on the go and need to hydrate and there is no other option for you, making sure you’re keeping hydrated is very important. 

Our tap water is anything but natural, and a little bit scary when we start to learn about the things that have been added to it, and all that hasn’t been filtered out of it.

There are all kinds of water filters out there, and you can do some research to see what sounds best to you.

However, if you want to step up your water game a couple of notches, going out and collecting fresh living water from a natural spring is the best! The taste is so refreshing and clean, you won’t want to go back to tap water.

You can find a spring near you by visiting www.findaspring.com. Spring water can be the most beneficial water for your body, if it is a good quality spring and the water has been properly naturally filtered. Before heading off to a particular spring, do a little bit of research to make sure that that spring has been tested for quality. There are details right on the Find a Spring website in the individual spring descriptions, indicating the water quality.

I prefer to take with me some smaller glass jugs, so that they aren’t too heavy once they are filled, and also so I am not using plastic containers to collect and store this amazing water in. I find there’s something really empowering and exciting with foraging for your own good quality water.

Thanks for following along, and I hope you enjoyed this week’s roundup!
