The Recipe & What You Need to Make This Delicious Milk

So here is what you need and feel free to change it up anyway you like. I cannot stress enough that recipes are always adaptable and it is perfectly fine and fun to be creative with them!

1/3 cup hemp hearts

1 – 2 pitted dates

1 tsp of vanilla or 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract * play with this to your liking. Make it YOUR recipe

3 cups water

Throw in your blender and blend and you have milk. πŸ™‚ It’s that easy.

Some Variations:

You can add in maple syrup or switch out the dates for maple syrup or have both. You can add in cinnamon. Yesterday I took some of this milk and added it to coconut milk and added more maple syrup and cinnamon and blended and added it to my coffee for a dairy free option and Oh My Goodness is was Soooo good! My kid loved it so much she had 3 small glasses! And she can be picky… just sayin. πŸ™‚

The Coronavirus – A Chance to Reevaluate How We See Things

We are in challenging times here on earth and sometimes that brings about fear and change. Change is not necessarily a bad thing.

Not to minimize this virus, but if we think about it, more people die every day from gun shot wounds and drug overdoses….

So, what if we decided to use the current situation to reevaluate our own life and maybe start to feel a little more empowered rather than fearful?

What do I mean?

Well, we could decide that life really is worth living and is here for us and offers us amazing adventures and beautiful JOYful moments and experiences. And maybe we declare to ourselves that we do indeed want to experience these amazing offerings available to us. So could this be a catalyst for us to make more positive changes in our lives? 🌻

Changes like these, but not limited to:

. Being happier and more positive because that is super awesome for our immune system and our overall health!

. Stepping up our game when it comes to daily activities that can boost our immune systems and enhance our health.

. Things like walking, laughing, eating more fruits πŸ‰ and vegetables, getting out in nature, turning off the news, supplementing with things like Vitamin C and Zinc, following our passions, hugging our babes, writing poetry, etc. etc. etc. Anything that enhances our health and/or makes us feel good, helps. πŸ™‚

. Turning to β™₯ Love β™₯ and away from Fear! Personally, I am ramping up my game in that department. More Love, More Kindness, More JOY, More … More … More….. More FEELING GOOD β—¦β€’β—β—‰βœΏ Δ»α΅’Χ©Ρ” βœΏβ—‰β—β€’β—¦

. Focusing on the things in life that matter most.

The list here is endless. It is simply deciding to use this current situation to make changes that give us a sense of peace and help us to actually become proactive and to make changes that are positive, beneficial and life enhancing! It’s like turning the tables from a bad thing to a good thing.

We can use this exact situation to help us to get clear on what we really want in our lives, and to get healthier, so that we can be stronger and more able to do those things that we love. We can β™₯ celebrate β™₯ the fact that our bodies, minds and spirits will become stronger as the result of our efforts. This is turn will assist us in becoming a stronger force in handling pathogens like viruses and bacteria. These things come along every day, so it is wise to be better prepared through a positive mindset and a stronger body.

You just can’t lose by adopting some of the principles mentioned. I hope you do adopt more of them into your life. I sure am and I am stronger and happier than ever. Λœβ€Β°β€’.Λœβ€Β°β€’ Full speed ahead. β€’Β°β€Λœ.β€’Β°β€Λœ

I leave you with one final thought:

Perhaps you can use this current state of affairs, to see how precious life is and why you do not want to waste one second in fear or in survival thinking. Time is precious so spend your moments in JOY as much as you can, do the things you LOVE and become a master of your moments.

Blessings to all…
