I cut up a ton of veggies I had and dumped them on top! 

Cilantro (a ton!! LOVE IT! ) 
Brussel Sprouts

Cumin on top once cooked I just shake away! 

In a pan over medium heat, add black beans (rinsed and drained), salsa, and cumin. Heat for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally, until heated through. 
ALL SAUTED in Coconut Oil Until Soft
(Optional: mash beans after heating for a creamier filling 
and remove before adding veggies.)

 Added AVOCADO *because it's amazing!*
ADDED my Favorite Taco Sauce!! 

GF/DF Mean Green Sauce 


1/2 ripe avocado
3/4 cup cilantro, stems removed
Juice from 1 lime
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. agave/honey *Local is best* 
1/8 tsp. himalayan Pink sea salt *clean salt*

Make the avocado sauce: in a food processor or blender, add all sauce ingredients and blend. Add a touch of water to thin if necessary, and tweak seasonings as desired. Set aside, or refrigerate if making ahead of time. * GREAT on Salads Too! Add Spice... This is CREATIVE Dump Cooking!! LOL! 

Assemble the tacos: spoon the black bean mixture in the center of the tortillas, drizzle a small amount of avocado sauce over the top, spread it all around for each bite and add your veggie or veggie meat toppings. :)

Meditation: Giving your Mind the TLC it needs from a recovering Maniac

Meditation.... It is NOT for the hippy anymore!! It is FOR EVERYONE in today's fast paced, I need more, I can multitask better than anyone I know, I want it now world!! 
Trust me!! I am currently a recovering manic!! 
You’re folding clothes, while watching TV, while checking your phone, while petting the cat—all while wondering what to make for dinner and whether or not you could rock bangs. Sound familiar? With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be easy for our minds to get overwhelmed and overburdened.

Meditation and Giving your Mind the TLC it needs from a recovering Maniac 

To combat this stimulation overload, many people turn to meditation. Meditation is an ancient remedy for the stress and anxiety of modern life. It can help us develop strength, clarity and stability in our mind and also help us live in a less distracted, more wakeful, and productive way. All you need is a quiet place, a little determination, and a few meditation tips and pointers to help you find success!!

Make sure you designate a time each day to practice meditation. It doesn’t need to be long—even two minutes of meditation can be beneficial—but you must be consistent. Like any skill, meditation takes repetition and practice to master. The more consistent you are with it; the more benefits you will see.

Create a Space!! Your very own time out area
Ideally you’d meditate atop a mountain surrounded by clouds of incense, yak butter candles, and the sound of tingsha chimes. But this just isn’t realistic for the majority of us. Luckily, all you really need is a place where you won’t be interrupted. If you can, dim the lights and diffuse meditation oils like  Stress Away, and Inner Child from YLO or simply light a candle! 
Music can also add to a calming atmosphere. Turn on Spotify to enjoy 20 minutes of relaxing music or create your own meditation playlist! I listen to Carolyn Myss Morning and/or Evening Meditation daily. I listen quietly while I sip my coffee and than transition into work online while it still plays in the AM. Spotify has timed meditation guided and unguided for FREE!!

Sit comfortably with two feet planted into the ground or lay comfortably in corpse pose: 
The place you choose to sit should be comfortable. Keep your back straight but make sure you’re relaxed and comfortable. Try rolling back your shoulders to help straighten your back. Muscles tight? Give yourself a hydrating massage or roll it out on a foam roller.  The massage motion can help improve blood circulation and help relieve tension.

Turn OFF your brain 
This is by far the HARDEST task!! guided meditation can help with this at first or tapping to LET GO of what it is on your brain that can't give you a few minutes or quiet. One of the keys to meditation is learning how to allow thoughts to come and go without judgement or emotion. This is also one of the most difficult parts to master. It is completely normal for your mind to start racing as soon as you try to calm it, so don’t try and block out everything that comes into your mind. Instead, let the thought come into your mind, acknowledge it, and let it go.

Take a Breathe 
Breathing is the foundation of meditation. If your mind begins to wander, you can always return to the breath to refocus yourself. Diffuse an essential oil with a calming aroma like Lavender or Frankincense, close your eyes, and breathe in deeply through your nose and allow your chest and stomach to expand as you are filling your body with nice, fresh air. Then exhale fully and slowly through your mouth, letting the air remove all negative energy from your body. Pay attention to the physical sensation of breathing: the cool air entering your nostrils, the expansion of your belly, and the warmness of the air leaving your body. When all else fails...... focus on your breathe. 
Sara Stakeley

NO QUITTERS.... It takes Consistency and Commitment 
You ARE going to think it is a waste of time, YOU are going to think I can just skip that 1 day..... YOU need to stay consistent with your time for energy space just like a workout for your brain!! 
What is EASY to Do is EASIER not to do..... but soooooo important for YOU! 
The changes meditation can make to your life may be subtle at first, but over time can significantly increase your inner well being and happiness. Remember, practice makes perfect and you're perfect is not someone else’s perfect. Don’t get discouraged or frustrated if you don’t reach nirvana on your first go. 
As long as you stay consistent you will start to see progress and the benefits of giving your mind the TLC it needs.
What practice have you used to create relaxation and reflection time?

Easter Edible Nests ~ Dessert for little or BIG kids!!

If you’re like me, you look for easy dessert recipes as the AUNT OF THE YEAR to make for holidays and this one is great for Easter! Instead of making a square pan of rice krispie treats, you use a muffin tin to make individual little bird nests!

Easter Edible Nests 

This was fun!! It was Easy!! And the Kids really enjoyed making a nest for each special person in their life! 1 for Nana, 1 for Pap, 1 for Mommy, 1 for Daddy with extra chocolate eggs.... 1 for Uncle Brian with extra grass, and 1 for Aunt Sisa!!! 

Aunt Sisa controlled what she could..... to make it healthier with grass fed butter, 

Nature's Path Organic Crispy Rice Cereal, and yummy, all-natural marshmallows that look weird but melt beautifully!! :) find healthy alternatives when you can!! BALANCE IS KEY!! 

cooking craft
The kids LOVED this cooking craft 

Ingredients Needed:
  • 3 tbsp. grass fed butter
  • 1 10 oz bag of marshmallows or all-natural (whole foods)
  • 6 cups of crisp rice nature's path is gluten free! 
  • Edible Grass (target & Amazon) *this is not natural!! LOL! 
  • Robins egg candies *this is not natural!! LOL! 
Melt the butter over medium heat and stir in the marshmallows. Continue stirring until completely melted. Pour the mixture over the crisp rice cereal and stir until well combined.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and shape the nests. I found it helpful to also spray a spoon and use it to help make the indents, but the MAGIC happened when I put surgical gloves on the kids and sprayed them so we could all use our "clean" hands!!! 
You could do this by hand but it would be quite messy!
To fill:
Let the rice krispies cool in the pan, pull them out, and decorate! I cut up the edible Easter grass, placed it in the next and filled the nest with the eggs. The robins eggs are so whimsical!

 Every spring in Pittsburgh you find the hatched egg shells all over the ground.
As I channeled my inner child with a juice.... this was a WINNER for any Aunt, Mom or Grandmother to make as a special treat!!
