Coinciding with this month’s theme is the Goddess Provision March Box on Wellness. This is perhaps the ideal curated subscription service that covers all the bases: cruelty free, minimally packaged, and each product is thoughtfully selected to serve a purpose (read: not a filler item). It’s my joy & excitement each month to unveil the selected theme and really apply what the Goddess Provisions team has set up for us in the particular month.
Real Talk: for me, wellness means personal wellness. It means identifying what works best for your body &. mind in order for you to find a happy medium of health and joy. I say medium because I don’t really believe balance is completely attainable. We’re all human, we have our good days, our bad days, our days when we just want to step back and relax, our days when we have a lust for life and fun. In my opinion: it’s about addressing yourself first and making necessary steps to continually learn about yourself.
We’re already almost 2 weeks into March. I have been following my regime that I planned out in my March intentions: staying centered, letting go, being mindful. So far I’ve definitely been experiencing a sense of peace that was wholly needed and keeps me accountable. Except for Daylight Savings time making its lovely appearance, I definitely did not react well to the time change but hey, having an arsenal of ideas to bounce back to my routine helps, and so does this recipe!
Sticking to my mylks or mylk lattes, this one is more of a day time mylk. It’s spiked with LivWell Nutrition protein that is not your typical protein powder. For this mylk I used the Raw Plant Protein in Wild Vanilla Bean! It is gluten-free, vegan, and made up of a protein blend with whole foods such as organic sprouted brown rice, organic yellow peas, organic sacha inchi, organic hemp. There’s also some vanilla bean, coconut sugar, Ceylon cinnamon, & stevia for some added sweetness – all organic.
Hello March, you’re already here. I’m mind blown by how quickly the year seems to be going! Am I the only one? We’ve had deliciously cold weather that’s led to warm sweaters during the day & the thickest blankets at night to decompress. I’ve still be making warm ‘shroom milks (medicinal mushrooms!) with rooting herbs & spices. I’ve been spending my Fridays in LA and am thinking about compiling a small guide of places I love to visit while I’m there.
We had some glorious rain (last for a while day and I enjoyed every bit) and I have been reminding myself of the word I picked for this year: rooted. Warming, grounding, earthy elements. From experimenting with tonics & soups to getting some more plants, mindful meditation…it’s all good.
Lately I have been revisiting the genre of poetry. While I wasn’t always drawn to poetry books, I would often write my own & held a few verses close to my heart. The captured meaning held between short verses, the ability to convey so much emotion in the web of words always moved me.
February has been a month of transition. There’s been heartbreak, there’s been growth, buds that have been blossoming, and changes afoot. Unsteady seas have made me stronger. However, it would not have been possible without the love and presence of friends. I’ve allowed myself to go through the feels, whether it was crying my heart out at 2 in the morning or journaling brief prose.
