Its not easy to set aside anger. I used to be so angry. I still am sometimes. But anger did not, and still does not serve me. I do not act rationally when I feel anger. I do not think clearly when I feel anger. I cannot live my best life while lingering in that state of anger. So, while it may seem impossible to let go, know it is possible. And we must let it all go, to live the life we’re meant to. Forgive yourself. Forgive those around you. Let go of the past, so that you may live peacefully in the present. After all, life is short, and tomorrow isnt promised.

Food for skin heath- BERRIES – Berries are about as antioxidant rich as it gets for a plant food. Their pigment comes from a powerful antioxidant called anthocyanin which helps buffer and prevent damage from toxins and free radicals on the skin. They also contain ellagic acid, an antioxidant that fights the break down of elastin and collagen and protects from sun damage. They also provide a boatload of vitamin C which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. #guthealth#skincarefromtheinsideout#foodforthought#berries#antioxidants#clearskin#naturalskincare
For some reason, I always thought I’d get married at age 23... I just thought it would be a good age for me to settle down. But here I am today, just turning 23, and already have a husband, a son, and I run my own business. It’s interesting how we look into the future and think that by a certain age, we hope to be at a certain place in life. But once you get there, you either exceed your expectation, or you disappoint yourself. 🤔#foodforthought#23#birthdaygirl#23birthday#inspriationalquotes#inspiration
How lucky are we to have such amazing food options @greenschoolbali . This is crispy spinach chips from @kulkulfarm stand GS. I visited my old high school this summer in Canada and was 😮 by the menu that hasn’t change in 30+😉years. French fries, hamburgers, chicken nuggets. All highly processed and from a box. Education in a box. You are what you eat. Feeling grateful #foodforthought
Food for skin health- AVOCADOS – These kind of have everything. They’re super rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins A and C, and fiber. They help brighten dull skin, smooth tone, and moisturize on a deep cellular level to prevent dryness which can lead to wrinkling. They help protect from sun damage and environmental pollutants and their fiber and lubricating oils help digestion which keeps your intestinal tract healthy and able to efficiently remove waste so your skin glows. #skinhealth#internalhealth#foodforthought#guthealth#clearskin
This is such an amazing lyric ( I think from a Tori Kelly song). What an amazing message...don’t be afraid to fall because where you end up is exactly where you need to be!!!...So many times we are frozen in fear, sometimes we have to remind ourselves that where we are is exactly where we’re supposed to be and where we end up is exactly where we should #foodforthought#beautyismorethanskindeep#mentalwellness#stylemesuite
Confession: I went grocery shopping this afternoon, came home and realized I didn’t get anything for tonight’s dinner 🤦🏼♀️ So back to the store I went, only to get home (again) & realize I forgot to get the shrimp for the stupid shrimp quesadillas I was planning on. UGH. Haha, just one of those days I guess! Thankful that tomorrow is Friday and thankful there’s a grocery store so close 🤣

Anyway, these quesadillas turned out amazing (even though I used chicken instead of shrimp 😂) and the flavors remind me of Chili’s Southwest Egg Roll appetizer! Minus the guilt, of course. They’re a little spicy with the perfect dipping sauce to cool ‘em off. Check it out below ⤵️

2tbsp olive oil
1 1/2c @traderjoes frozen fire roasted veggies
1/4c sweet corn

1c shredded rotisserie chicken

Repeat for remaining 3 quesadillas, cut into wedges and serve with avocado dipping sauce.
FOR THE AVOCADO DIP: 1/4c plain Greek yogurt, 1 large avocado, juice of 1 lime, 1/4tsp dried parsley. Blend together.
