First of all, let me say HAPPY NEW YEAR! I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to you. Whether you have been with me for a while or are brand new, I can feel your energy and enthusiasm.
At the beginning of January we are notorious for making resolutions and starting over. Here is the thing, your new year can start any day or anytime that you decide. Just decide and get busy with the energy of new ideas, dreams and desires the new year brings. You could pay off your debt, go back to school, lose weight and get healthy or to just eat healthier meals.
January starts and we're full of enthusiasm for the new person we are becoming. About two weeks or a month later, we lose sight of our "resolutions" and fall back into old patterns. Not this year, not you. You can do it. I believe in you.
Here is my advice to get started and stick with it:
- Do what LIGHTS you up. What makes you excited to get out of bed? What are your desires and dreams?
- Take at least 4 ACTION steps a day to get momentum moving in the direction of your dreams for 2015.
- Be YOU and be ok with it. Authenticity is a word that has been thrown around a lot in the last year. But living your truth is the only way to really live. As Madonna said in the 90's, Express Yourself.
- Relax and have fun and enjoy every moment. The end goal is the cherry on top, but it’s the JOURNEY that's the most precious.
Here is a healthy recipe from my new detox program that I’m releasing in the next couple of days. Get ready!
Miso is also particularly high in antioxidants, which remove dangerous free radicals from the body. Free radicals are cell-
destroying chemicals that have been linked to degenerative diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even the
effects of aging. Can we stay forever young? Maybe not in years but in our heart, yes.
VEGETABLE MISO SOUP (Makes 4 cups)
5 cups water
1/3 cup sliced carrots
1/3 cup diced zucchini
1/3 cup chopped broccoli
5 teaspoons miso of your choice
1 cup chopped kale, swiss chard, or other greens
MAKE THE VEGETABLES: In a large pot add water, carrots, zucchini and broccoli and bring to a boil. Once boiling lower to a simmer and let cook another 5 minutes.
MIX IN THE MISO: Add a few tablespoons of the vegetable broth from the pot to a small bowl. Add miso to the bowl and mix in the miso to form a puree. Place the miso puree in the soup pot and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes (miso should not be boiled because it will kill the beneficial bacteria). Finally, add the greens and simmer for 2 more minutes and then remove from heat.
