Wednesday’s Thank You

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Positive Thinking

I am so very thankful for the work that I have the privilege to do. Once a week I have the honour of holding a walk club with people living in a retirement home. Afterwards, I head-off a Movement & Meditation Practice while my 9 year old son holds a beanbag tournament.

How fortunate we are to live our life where we have choice!

Je suis tellement reconnaissante pour le travail que je fais. Une fois par semaine, j’ai l’honneur d’animer un club de marche pour des retraités. Suivant notre marche, je leur offre un cours de Mouvements & Méditation pendant que mon fils de 9 ans anime un tournoi de jeu de poches.

Comme nous sommes privilégiés de vivre notre vie où il y a des choix!

Ever wonder why meditation and prayer are so helpful? It is because for a few moments you silence the ego to listen to your Soul!

La prière est pour parler à Dieu, la méditation est pour écouter Dieu!

Est-ce que vous vous êtes déjà posé la question pourquoi que la prière et la méditation nous procurent un si grand bien-être? C’est parceque pendant quelques minutes vous tranquillisez votre ego pour écouter votre Esprit!

Coconut, Nut And Seed Butter

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Healthy Living, Recipes

Are you a nut and seed lover? Nut and seed butters are a wonderful way to get your proteins. Plus if you are careful about what is found in your food, you will love this easy, one step recipe that applies to all nuts and seeds.

Instead of running out to the store to buy one of those unhealthy nut butters or still yet, a really healthy one that is so very expensive, know you can actually transform all your favorite nuts and/or seeds into a yummy, healthy to hassle butter.

Today I chose to go with coconut. I bought a huge bag of Prana organic coconut shreds because I love it so much. Aside it being crazy yummy, here are some great benefits of coconut.

Ingredients
Coconut, that’s it!
You can use any quantity you wish, just know that it will reduce as it turns into butter.

Directions

1- Add small coconut pieces or shreds into a a food processor and mix for a few minutes. Wait a few moments and mix again.

2- Be patient, it take a while for the mixture to become creamy and butter like.

3- Pour into a jar and use on EVERYTHING!!!

One small side note: because it is coconut, it will harden a bit once the mixture cools. You may want to heat it a bit before spreading. This is also why it’s so great to mix in with other nuts or some organic cocoa when mixing in the food processor. If you mix cocoa and coconut, you will get a chocolate-coconut spread that melts when you add it to a hot, organic and healthy toast!

Other ideas include mixing almonds in your food processor to create almond butter. Or how about some almonds, cashews and cocoa! Maybe some hazel nuts, cocoa and coconut!!!

Whatever you choose to mix, when you add a bit of coconut, you know you are getting something healthy!

Do you have some great nut/seed mixing combinations to share? Please comment and share below, we all would love to hear all about them!

Week 14-15 / Semaine 14-15

Week 14-15: 
Create A Major Concrete Goal requiring many incremental ones, such as running your first marathon while training to climb Denali (Alaska’s Mount McKinley). By getting out of your comfort zone, you will clear your mind of the details of everyday life, fostering new ideas and “aha” moments. We sort of trip through life doing what’s right in front of us. Most people look at mountains and think: There’s no way I can do that. These mountains are so ominous, but climbing drives home the lesson that a mountain is one big slope that requires putting one foot in front of another—just like accomplishing big goals in business can be, metaphorically speaking. Continue to find ways to get out of your comfort zone. If you go too long without pushing boundaries, you’ll get stale.

Semaine 14-15: Créez un But Concret et Majeur exige l’accomplissement de beaucoup de petits buts progressifs, comme courir votre premier marathon dans le but d’escalader Mont Denali (Mont McKinley en Alaska). En sortant hors de votre zone de confort, vous calmerez votre esprit des tracas journaliers, favorisant l’ouverture à de nouvelles idées et des grands moments d’inspiration. Souvent, nous parcourons notre vie en accomplissant ce qui se trouve directement devant nous. La plupart des personnes regardent les montagnes et pensent: “Il m’est impossible de grimper ça, je ne pourrais pas y arriver”. Ces montagnes sont menaçantes, mais les escalader nous démontre qu’une montagne n’est qu’une grande pente qui exige un pied devant l’autre pour la conquérir, tout comme l’accomplissement de grands buts en affaire.
Continuez à trouver des façons de vous pousser hors de votre zone de confort car être trop longtemps sans pousser ses frontières, nous rend blasé.
