How is your relationship with food?

Do you struggle with cravings, or turning to food when you are stressed, sad, or just plain bored?

As someone with a 10 year history of disordered eating (bulimia, borderline anorexia, orthorexia) – I know how difficult our relationship to food and body can be.

I honestly think it’s one of the most difficult things to address.

In my latest video, I speak candidly about my own struggles, and how transforming this relationship is not just about making new choices and behaving differently. It’s also about changing the way we think and feel towards food and our bodies. Changing things at the root.

I also offer one simple and effective strategy that you can use today, to deal with food cravings and emotional eating.

This is an important one to watch, if you are wanting help with food cravings, or are curious as to what these cravings are trying to tell you.

Quick Banana Spelt Muffins

Quic Quick Banana Spelt Muffins

These Banana Spelt muffins are incredibly moist, flavoursome and, like most of my favorite recipes; easy to whip up in a jiffy!

I use Spelt flour, which is an ancient cereal grain, that is easier to digest, and has a stronger nutritional profile than regular wheat flour.

As a healthier alternative to cane sugar, I have used Coconut Sugar  and I find that this adds a certain molasses-type richness to the muffins.

Quick Banana Spelt Muffins

Ingredients

Prep time: 6 mins  Total: 25 mins

3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup Coconut sugar

1 egg (slightly beaten)

1/3 cup coconut oil (could substitute melted butter)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups spelt flour

Method:

:: Mix the mashed banana, sugar, egg and coconut oil together. Set aside.

:: Grab a separate bowl and mix the baking soda, baking powder, salt and spelt flour all together with a wooden spoon.

:: Combine the wet and dry ingredients together, being careful not to over-stir.

:: Pour into greased muffin tins and bake in a moderate oven.

:: Leave to cool for 10 minutes.

:: Mini muffins will take approximately 15 minutes.  Regular sized about 20 minutes.

 

Sometimes I like to spike these with dark organic chocolate, but trust me – they are fabulous served straight up.

Enjoy!

3 ways to keep on track with your vision, goals and desires

Do what you love and dont stop until 2 682x1024 3 ways to keep on track with your vision, goals and desires

As I write this, the first quarter of the year has already sprouted and blossomed. Can you believe it?

The great news is that it provides the perfect opportunity to take out your journal and review exactly how aligned you are with your vision for the year.

Here are 3 practices that will keep you on track with your vision, goals and desires:

 

Keep your vision handy and your goals succint

If you aim for nothing, you will hit it every time.- Zig Ziglar

If you started the year with a bucket list of goals, it’s likely that you might already be feeling distracted or overwhelmed.

Why?

Our Brains seek the path of least resistance. Too many goals equals information overload. Our energy becomes scattered and our brains effectively freeze.   We begin to lose focus on our desires altogether, which creates an illusion of failure.

To combat this, commit to embracing a few (or even one) mammoth goal at a time.  Memorise or have it written somewhere you can easily refer to on a daily basis.

By the way – Keeping those desires tucked away in a drawer is an instant dream killer.  I like to keep a visual journal that I continue to play with as the year unfolds and adore Pinterest for growing a garden of lush ideas and inspiration.

 

Maintain a growth mindset

If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve.- Debbie Millman

How do some of us stay motivated while some of us lapse early in the game? Why do some people have endless resilience while others appear to give up at the first stumbling block?

I believe that a lot of it comes down to whether we embrace and inhabit a fixed mindset, or a growth mindset.

Believing that your abilities and talents are carved in stone (a fixed mindset) and that set-backs are failures, places an immediate gap between us and our vision.

When we maintain a growth mindset, we acknowledge, that while natural ability is a factor for success; dedication, practice and perseverance will take us anywhere.

We can always improve. We can always get there with hard work. We have access to unlimited resources and possibilities- both internally and externally.

In other words – Believe that you are enough and that you are capable of moving yourself forward.  You’ve got this!

 

Go all in.

Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.- Wayne Dyer

Go all in and begin today.

The easiest way? Danielle LaPorte says it well – ‘Desire is the engine of creation’.

Claim and inhabit your intended state of desire, as much as you can.   Get in touch with your feelings and start taking action to replicate that feeling right now.

Going all in means that you live your days as if they were ideally planned – with clarity, purpose and excitement.  It also means, taking every hot second you can to enjoy the process!

Bring your lofty goals and desires front and centre – so that your yearly vision is vibrant and alive,  from beginning to end.

 

I always like to remind myself that life is short and sweet and sacred. And I wanna know – where is the fun and the celebration in this?  If it’s not here – how do I bring it?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

If you are feeling stuck, in any area of your life – I have something for you.

On April 7th, Natalia and I will be holding a FREE coaching Q and A about letting go and making space for new possibilities.

This free offering is a bit of a love project.

You get to ask two experienced coaches any question you have about letting go and how to move forward.

Sound good?   Here are the deets:
