The Whole Enchilada (or taco recipe) and Dealing with Toxic Relationships.

Yes, relationships. It all boils to relationships (not the taco, thou.) 😉

Hello again!

I will be sharing the taco recipe today along with this post… Ingredients first.

 

Step One.

Ingredients

2 cups hydrated hibiscus flower

2 red tomatoes, diced

¼ white onion finely chopped

1 jalapeno or serrano chili pepper, finely diced

¼ cup coriander (cilantro)

½ teaspoon olive oil

1 jicama in very thin slices (these are your tortillas)

Salsa, and lime juice

 

As for the toxic relationship: a person exhibiting toxic behaviors and another person buying in them. PERIOD.

You might have noticed that on my other posts I stress three things: a behavior, someone buying in and an unhealthy dance or toxic relationship they have.

Again, it takes two to tango. Maybe because of my background as a humanistic counsellor, in Gestalt and on Robbinss-Madanes training I tend to focus on empowerment and the possibility of healing. I typically do not tag others and do not diagnose in my coaching or in my practice. That’s for Psychiatrists, and DSM V criteria. But I.Don’t.Do.That.

 

Step Two.

Break the pattern. Yes, you heard me well, break the pattern. And I will set forth three roads for you to choose from, because I believe what Tony says, a choice implies at least three options.

One. Leave the scene or the relationship. On the leave part you can do it either physically or emotionally. Be bolder and do both? I know some of these relationships might be family, so the emotional part (even the physical one) might be difficult and seem impossible.

Two. Learn to laugh at yourself and take things with humor. Chances are the offender might be caught off track and either stop in the turmoil come back with a vengeance. Still take it with humor, as you’ve been warned.

Three. Observe from love. Yes, you heard well, from love, specifically SELF-LOVE. Instead of understanding and making puzzles around THEIR behavior. Take a step back, pause and love yourself more. That’s the first step to be unhooked from it all.

Ah, the taco recipe:

How to make the tacos:

  1. Put the hibiscus to boil in water for 5 to 8 minutes at medium to high heat. (You can use the concentrated tea that comes from its boiling and keep it to prepare hibiscus water, a Mexican delicacy).
  2. Dice the hibiscus in fine chops.
  3. Rinse in tap water. If the hibiscus is still a bit stiff, set it to boil for another 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. In a hot pan, warm a bit of oil and cook for the tomato, the onion and the chili peppers for 5 minutes, if you don’t want for it to be a hot dish you can remove the seeds from the peppers or not add them at all.
  5. Add the diced hibiscus flower, the coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper.

 

 

Step Three

 

Take steps forward to get out of the toxic relationships and you will see your life improve.

You will notice an increase of happiness, energy and positivity in your life. Sooo… #StepUp

It’s your time to #RISE to #RAWR and #Live2Soar.

See? Now you can enjoy better relations hips, AND healthier tacos!!!

Oh, oh, serve the hibiscus in the jicama and enjoy your tacos. You can add salsa, the lime juice or go bold and add guacamole!

Have an awesome weekend!

The Secret Society of Personal Growth. Huh?

Exactly my thoughts!

As a Life and Business Coach I was amazed to see how Facebook Satatistics just do NOT like personal growth. Just check their ads options. Personal Growth, you’re limiting your audience too much. Whoa!

So I decided to launch this one article into infinity and speak about personal growth.  The way I see it, growth is the key  to living and the fuiel to our dreams! Why personal? Well, because the one growing is you!

Now, I have seen those that sit comfortable with their lives and project no growth whatsoever in their future, so I will ask you. What are you afraid of?

I have seen those running like a hamster in a wheel for their “balanced” routine, and I would like to ask you. What are you escaping from?

And I have seen the opposite, people wanting to thrive in life, people of any age making an every day choice to llive as if this was the adventure it IS!

The difference? The people in the latter group are about growth. About facing challenges and problems, with a smile on their faces and their head held high, these are people with a powerful WHY. People invested in LIVING, giving, growing and sharing.

Why not express it in a Bucket List, you can look at mine (on the picture of this post)  and peek in how all can be turned into goals. All too, speak of a larger purpose,

Strong from Within Fitness!!!

Helloo!!!

Welcome back! I am posting today with something that has been haunting me for weeks. We are all about balance, true; and about real foods, fair enough. And what about fitness? Well, we are all about what we will call in this series, real fitness too!

What does that mean? Well, that means we are traditional when it comes to building strength and we recommend and prefer fitness exercises that build strong muscles and bones from within.

Our stars are:

  1. Martial Arts
  2. Yoga
  3. Body weight exercise
  4. Dancing – Ballet, Jazz, Yoga, Zumba, Barre

Yes, I know I am leaving out a lot of popular fitness trends and techniques. However, we quote these four as our favorites, because they build strength from within. Martial Arts, such as Kung Fu, and Yoga are number one and two due to their specific mix of mindfulness, breathing, flexibility, and strength building.

Body weight exercise and Dancing made the list because of their focus on building strength from within, through repetitive movements and routines. Dancing will typically involve flexibility training while you need to add some stretch routine for Body weight.

You could make any HIIT or Tabata HITT or leave them as is. Any of these are great cardio and will get you strong from within!

Happy soaring!

Extinguish Burnout by Doing these Three Things!!!

  1. Breathe – You’re perhaps thinking, I do that every day. And I’m sure you do! The trick is doing it in a mindful way. And here’s my favorite way to do so. It will work if you’re a beginner or an advanced yoga or meditative practitioner. Aternate Nostril Breathing  –  Close your right nostril with your right thumb inhale   27 in left, deeply through your left nostril. Close your left nostril with your right ring finger exhale 27 out right, inhale from that very same nostril – 26 in right, cover it and then exhale from your left nostril – 26 out left, inhlae from that nostril -25 in left … keep on repeating the procedure and count down from 27 down. I typically get to 16 and feel a lot more calm.
  2. Move – may it be 2 minutes, 5 or 10, but move! A great tip is to dance in your place, walk, still running, etc… If you’re at your office, get a standing desk or (if you get the chance) wak while on the phone. Should that not be an option, walk 10-20 minutes after lunch at a brisk pace, the movement and oxygen will clear and calm your mind.
  3. Avoid simple carbs (sugars and white pastas),processed and pre-packaged foods (sweet rols, breads, chips and sodas …) and alchohol. All these will spike the sugar levels in your blood.,your body produes more cortisol and your body, then, stresses from within too!

And remember, “The cyclone derives its powers from a calm center, so does a person.” Norman Vincent Peale.

 

Happy Friday!

One Ingredient at at a Time!

Hello!

Welcome back! On this one to series… We invite you to try this, substitute one ingredient at a time!

If you’re familiar or have been following my FB group Unshakeable Balance, you already know that I’ve been sharing common recipes, and substituting the high-carb ingredient for a low-carb one. Again, One Ingredient at a time! Our program is to help you heal, eat better, live a more balanced life and MOVE! Our One By One technique is the slow but steady road to dieting… As we practice what we preach, we know that substituting every single ingredient in your meals will make the dish taste completely different. So, instead of accidentally turning your favorite spaghetti and meatballs into zoodles with tofu, replace one ingredient only.

For example, you can start by using whole grain pasta; or if you have a spiralizer, you could try zoodles instead leave the meatballs and sauce as they are. As you know, we’re into eating real foods, and building a sustainable diet, and a sustainable planet while at it, so we suggest you try making your own fresh tomato sauce rather than using a canned variety, very likely to be packed with preservatives.

One.By.One

Balance to Soar!

Enjoy!
