Compassion | Monday Mantra

Monday Mantra

Screen Shot 2015-11-15 at 10.12.38 AM

I really don’t know where to start, how to speak to or respond to this past weekends events in Paris that brought such tragedy in addition to everything that is going on in other parts of the world. The only thing I can think or feel is peace, love, and compassion. That’s all I want to share today and hope that we use times like these to reignite our higher consciousness and connection with ourselves, with each other, and our world. This is a universal challenge, for us to manifest more energy and space in our days for silence, for gratitude, for reflection, for mindfulness, for sitting and befriending the tough emotions, for love, for joy, happiness, and peace. Let’s collectively send our energy and prayers, not just today because of this event, but #prayforhumanity

With light and love,

Coffee, Elevated | Medicinal Mushroom Bulletproof Coffee Nutrition StrippedELEVATE (verb): to bring to the next level, to improve, to make better, to lift up. We’ve all heard about ‘bulletproof coffee’, yeah? Essentially BP coffee is MCT oil and butter that’s been emulsified with high quality coffee. Yet this is Coffee, Elevated Nutrition Stripped style, with a boost of inflammation fighting medicinal mushrooms, maca, warming nutmeg, MCT oil which has heaps of health benefits you can read about here and emulsifies the coffee and ingredients together; coconut milk rich in saturated fats and gives this a super creamy taste, and a touch of stevia to taste. Not to mention, everyone can enjoy this since it’s completely dairy-free! Oh, and did I mention you can make it in 2 minutes? Cheers!
