Don’t get me wrong. I’m your typical fidgety-ouch-my-cheek-is-asleep-whats-that-on-my-nose kinda mediator. It wasn’t until I went to yoga festival in Southern Virginia and met Katie Silcox that I decided to really focus on my practice. After the yoga festival, I started following Katie’s blog and read her book, Happy, Healthy, Sexy. Which I truly recommend. “My goal is to help you live the juiciest, most passionate, balanced, love-filled, purpose-driven life possible by teaching you to use the most time-tested, enduring tools and techniques known to humankind – simply and easily.” – Katie Silcox My problem was that I was set on the stereotypical depiction of meditation– a yogi in a remote cave, Zen monks sitting silently for hours. But, what I learned was that for certain people, and for certain types of meditations, music can be an incredibly powerful tool. It all depends on what meditative stat you seek.
I’ve gotten a few messages about the protein drink that I’ve added to my routine that I mentioned in my recent update to my What’s in the Kitchen page. I’ve been making a shake with an advocare meal replacement, 1 banana, a scoop of almond butter, and water! The advocare meal replacement itself contains 24g of protein, with the additional of the scoop of almond butter, I can add another 7ish g of protein. The meal replacement does not contain very much fat, only 3 g, which is also why I like to add the nut butter. Mama needs her fats! Check out Advocare.com for more information on their other supplement lines! Happy blending!
