The Tale of the Three Thieves | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

My latest story is a tale of three thieves who come to steal from a young army of men and women who have everything to lose. They are on the brink of conquering a beautiful land that once belonged to their ancestors. Much like the young army, we too have a lot to lose as well, and there are things that come along to talk us out of our hope, peace and confidence. Listen to this episode to find out more about the three thieves and how the story plays out in the end. Click the link below, or visit iTunes if you are using an Apple product.

Berry Apple Breakfast Salad

Hey healthy bunnies,

When I’m trying to be especially on top of my health, the first move I always make (aside from staying really, really hydrated) is to eat more raw foods throughout the day. This may include more smoothies, salads, spirilized veggie noodles, and even replacing raw veggies for chips when I eat hummus or guacamole. I do it in the most convenient and tasty way possible.

 

Now that I’ve become a voice actor, I am trimming back on how many smoothies I drink first thing in the morning. The cold drinks aren’t so great for my vocals. Still, I need to get my raw foods in. This is where salad is especially  helpful!

 

I always thought I hated salads where greens and fruit were mixed, but it turns out– I hate berry salad dressing, not necessarily berries in salad. Usually they are syrupy sweet and it just feels like eating lettuce with maple syrup on top. Some may love it, so to each their own.

 

This berry breakfast salad has dark leafy greens, seeds, and fresh fruit. It’s packed with vitamin c, protein and fiber.

 

For this recipe I used a blend of kale, cabbage, brussels, and broccoli. You don’t have to be this extra, but I don’t now how not to be. Any dark leafy greens will do!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded dark leafy greens
  • 1/4 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup diced Granny Smith apple
  • 1-2 finely chopped dates
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds

Salad dressing

  • 3 tbsp mild flavorless oil (like grapeseed)
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • a pinch of sea salt

 

  1. Combine leafy greens, strawberries, apples, dates and cilantro. Once complete, sprinkle chia seeds on top.
  2. Whisk salad dressing ingredients till well blended. A mason jar is great for this, because you can shake it, and store the rest for later. The dressing is enough for about 3 servings.
  3. For best results, let salad sit for 5-10 minutes to marinate.

When They Tell You It’s Impossible

Pay close attention to the times when you are told things are impossible. Is it really impossible, or is the person who is telling you, no longer curious or out of options themselves? Sometimes people can be SO SURE of themselves, we think they must be right. If you keep going, and keep discovering– it just might be possible for you.

 

Interview on Hilah’s Happy Hour (Podcast)

Happy Tuesday!

I hope your week is off to a fantastic start.

A  little update for you:

I’ve been working away at my new venture which is getting into voice acting. It is really keeping me busy as it is quite a steep learning curve, but so much fun. I am still getting a handle on it, so it has affected my podcast schedule, but don’t you worry I have some things in the works!

If you’re missing my podcast, you can take a listen to my most recent interview on my friend Hilah Johnson’s podcast called Hilah’s HappyHour. 

We talk about a range of things from why I’m not a vegan, health and fitness, entertaining guests, and my mechanical engineering background that some of you may not know about.
