Virabhadrasana II (Warrior II)
HA! I love this one! Totally awesome warrior II!
What a deal!! I had to share this one with you all since I am a big fan of coconut oil! Not only does a little go a long way and add great flavor to soups, stir fry, and even baking but did you know it’s got loads of health benefits? Coconut oil provides benefits for skin, hair care, heart, weight loss, digestion, immunity, infections, liver, kidney, stress relief, diabetes (helps control blood sugar and improves the secretion of insulin), and even helps the absorption of calcium it helps with dental care!

Silverbow Orange Blossom Honey Sticks
A mama in labor is working harder and longer than she may ever have done before. Eating is important to maintain her energy, strength, stamina, health. (YES, you can eat while in labor. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to contact me.) Foods that are easily digested and quick sources of energy are recommended.
Many women find that once they are in active labor they lose the desire to eat or find chewing difficult. Honey sticks from Silverbow Honey are one of my MUST HAVE items in my doula bag “food for mama” section. They are high quality and mama’s love them in labor! Honey sticks, plastic tubes with about a tablespoon of honey in it, are an excellent quick energy boost and easy to take in when eating may not be so easy. Honey sticks are especially handy in a birth setting with restrictions on food and/or drinks. Ladies, pack these in your hospital or birth center bag!
Honey sticks are also an excellent natural energy boost before yoga class if you’re in need of a light snack but don’t want to fill up your belly.
Silverbow Honey Company is a family owned business located in Moses Lake, Washington. They are “America’s finest since 1945!” Their 100% pure honey sticks are Certified Kosher by Kosher Certification Service and come in a variety of delicious and refreshing flavors.

Yum!! This looks so comforting and yummy right now. I’m actually headed out the door in 10 min to pick up whole wheat pasta (or maybe even quinoa pasta) and cauliflower to make this tonight! I was just thinking about what to make and nothing was sounding appealing to me until I came across this easy cozy recipe. I’ve been working very long hours (often until 3 or 4:00am lately) and not stopping to eat much for dinner. (I know, totally not good. I am looking forward to preparing something tonight and thankful it’s so simple (more work to come after dinner!)
It’s approximately 265 cal and 7g fat per serving, but I’ll likely cut back on the amount of cheese it calls for.
**UPDATE: It was delicious! The hint of cayenne pepper and garlic powder mixed with the cheese (I used sharp cheddar and fresh parm) was fabulous. The cauliflower added flavor and made it filling along with packing in vitamin C and K!

Thank you for sharing the five major principles in Reiki Meditation,
Let’s face it, snapping a shot from my low battery android without flash looks terrible! I honestly didn’t think this would be a recipe to share but what a surprise. SO yummy, so simple, and way better than the ingredients sound so give it a try and let me know when you do!
