Challenging Self

Challenging Self

Do days go by, or weeks maybe even years……and you find yourself doing the same old same old?

Are you happy doing what you’re doing?

Do you drive the same way to work, eat the same breakfast or lunch every day, or is every Tuesday chicken and rice night, you know what I mean??

Took a little trip down to Florida for a few weeks, had some r & r, good times and my sister, Steph, and I decided to try Para Gliding…..something I always wanted to do. She asked and we were in the pick up van within 15 mins on our way.

If you ever thought about doing it….DO IT!!!!

Us taking off.


Going up higher and farther away!!

Higher still!!!

Looking down……ok I will admit, the people that went up before us and when I saw how high up they were, I got thinking WTH??

But I didn’t let that stop me, besides 5 kids way younger than me did it!!

It was so calm, quiet and peaceful up there it was amazing!!

YES it was fun!!!

Do I look scared??

How can you challenge yourself today?

Or would you just like to add it to your bucket list??

Have a beautiful day!!

Juicy Living

What does Juicy Living mean to you?

Are you bored? Doing the same old same old? Going the same way to work each day? Eating the same foods every day? Watching the same tv shows? Are you really living the life you want to?

What thing could you do differently to shake up the routine?  We create habits whether good or bad and we keep them.  Part of living, part of growing is stepping out and making changes.  We are either growing or dying?

How could you put a little more juice into your life besides just food?

Do something different today, start making little changes……just think where you could be in a year if you did something different each day?

Stretch yourself, go past your limits, laugh more, love more, and make it your best day yet!!!!


Marinated Portabella Mushroom

Marinated Portabella Mushroom with Creamy Dill Sauce – RAW!!

This is a fairly easy dish to make, it does require some marinating and a dehydrator.  If you don’t have a dehydrator you could use our oven at the lowest temperature.  Just remember anything heated over 115degrees usually gets cooked and it’s not raw then.

I used smaller sized Portabella Mushrooms in this recipes, but bigger ones can be used to, you just might need to substitute more marinade.

– 4 Portabella Mushrooms (small ones are still a good size) this served 2 people

– 3 tbsp cold pressed olive oil

– juice 1/2 lemon

– 2 tsp Tamari

– 1 organic Garlic minced

Mix all together in a bowl and add mushrooms, making sure they are coasted.  Toss or stir every so often, leave to marinate for 2 – 3 hours.

Once marinated, place in dehydrator and dehydrate for 4 – 5 hours.

Marinated & Dehydrated sliced mushroom.

Creamy Dill Sauce

– 1 cup raw Cashews

– 4 oz Water

– juice 1/2 Lemon

– 1 organic Garlic clove

– 1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

– 1/4 – 1/2 cup organic Dill

Throw all ingredients into your Vitamix (blender or processor) and blend well until smooth.  A little more water may be added for desired consistency.  As you can tell I made my sauce a little on the thick side with just 4 oz of water.

Slice up Mushroom and place on plate and pour Creamy Dill Sauce on top, I added a little more dill which is optional.  This could also go on Zucchini noodles, pasta or rice but it tastes great on it’s own!!

This I served with a Quinoa Salad which the recipe will follow.
