Plenty More

My hus­band and I were gif­ted a totally awe­some cook­book for Christmas, and I had to share it: Plenty More; a com­pletely veget­ari­an cook­book, by Yotam Ottolenghi.

**Admission: I am not a veget­ari­an, and I am not get­ting kick­backs or pro­mo­tion for this cook­book. I had little know­ledge of its exist­ence until it arrived in my lap Christmas morn­ing** Read more

Reading for the Self (Soul)

What I’m reading right now:

The Fear Cure — Lissa Rankin MD fear cure

Fabulous tools for under­stand­ing what and why we might be hold­ing ourselves back, know­ing the dif­fer­ence between real fear and false fears that we cre­ate! I highly recom­mend!

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up- Marie Kando

I’ll be writ­ing a blog post on this later, but hon­estly, this book is a game-changer. Overly stuffed with stuff that steals our joy and influ­ences how we feel, we need to become centred in our Western World on what feeds us.

What you might be interested in reading:

Needing emotional perspective?

When life gives you lem­ons, make lem­on­ade. Read the books below for emo­tion­al reset­ting:

The Happiness Project — Gretchen Rubin

The Dance of Anger -Harriet Lerner PhD

Self-Compassion — Dr. Kristin Neff

In the Places that Scare You — Pema Chodron

When Things Fall Apart — Pema Chodron

Find yourself

There are many titles here that delve into the mean­ing of life, self-explor­a­tion, and the big­ger ques­tions of why we’re here. For those of you in these places, I highly recom­mend the fol­low­ing:

The Power of Now — Eckhart Tolle

How to Be Compassionate — The Dalai Lama

A Stroke of Insight — Dr. Jill Bolte-Taylor

Blogs

I read a few blogs myself, and most of them are actu­ally about self-aware­ness, self-devel­op­ment, and being a bet­ter human being. Let’s face it, we’re souls with­in bod­ies, not the oth­er way around!
