What are you grateful for?

I'm sitting here at my childhood home enjoying the view of my mom's backyard and thinking of all my childhood memories. I'm home from the city to go to my doctor's appointment tomorrow (running injuries) and while I'm home I'm going to see friends and family. Being away from the suburbs now makes me appreciate them more and those details that were annoying are now pretty awesome.
So, I'm grateful for a few of my favorite things. Summer fruit has been a craving of mine the last few days especially for breakfast. Lately, I've had organic blueberries, pears, pluots, peaches and dates. I also bought apples and of course I've had almond butter on hand :) What do you crave in the summer? Usually people crave more cooling foods (I'm off the oatmeal kick for now!)
What makes you blissfully happy? Do you wake up and think about three things you're grateful for? What are you looking forward to? For me, it's fall in New York City. It's building a life in the city and being happy. It's appreciating my family and friends in PA who are always there for me and only a bus ride away.
Do you list your accomplishments from time to time? It's important to do this so you can see how far you've come. I thought I hadn't accomplished anything since moving to NYC but then when I wrote down everything I've done, I realized I've done a lot. Give yourself credit for what you've done and don't put anything down, it all counts.
Make one of your goals a health goal. I'm 6 months into my health coaching program and I can officially see clients. So I ask you to make a health goal for yourself and I can support you if you need my help. Try a new fruit or veggie each week. Take the stairs. Walk 1/2 mile more everyday. Treat yourself to rest and relaxation. Eliminate one cup of soda from your diet. There are countless ways you can love yourself. Investing in your health is the best gift you can give yourself.
So I ask you again, what are you grateful for today? How can you embrace life more and be in the present. Spread love. Thank you all for your support of my wonderful, fun blog :)

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
