when life speeds up, don’t forget to slow down just a little and take a deep breath. it might not be the easiest thing to do, but a clear head a calm state will make any hard task or busy schedule seem a little more doable.
as this next month gets filled with meetings, work, school prep, training, and relationships i know it’s going to be easy for me to get overwhelmed (especially as my little introvert self lol)
so i’m making a commitment to:
- journal every morning
- meditate/stretch for ten minutes every night before bed
- do one form of “self care” per day, even if it’s something tiny
i’m hoping this will help me make sure i’m in a good headspace and also taking care of ME even in the midst of all the things going on around me!
what’s something YOU do to help tackle a busy schedule? ⬇️ ...
Looking for a fun way to incorporate more fiber and protein into your sweet treats? Try this CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH 🍪
I took a tip from @frommybowl and gave this a try and it was delicious 😋 It’s not overly sweet, light, and similar texture to cookie dough.
I ended up using canned chickpeas which does leave a subtle lingering “bean” flavor but you can also soak + cook your own chickpeas from scratch! Modified recipe below but you can find Caitlin’s full recipe on her blog.
To make the CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH, you will need:
• 1 can organic chickpeas (drained, rinsed, and soaked in water 12 hours)
• 1/4 cup tiger nut butter (can sub cashew or almond butter)
• 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
• 1/4 cup organic almond flour
• 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• Pinch of @redmondrealsalt
• 1/2 cup @enjoylifefoods dark chocolate chips
Drain and rinse chickpeas and soak in a sealed container with water overnight (this helps to get rid of some of the excessive “chickpea taste). You can also soak and cook your own chickpeas if you don’t use canned!
In a large food processor, combine chickpeas, tiger butter, almond flour, maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt. Pulse blend until texture is smooth (you may need to use a spatula to move content around).
One blended and smooth, fold in dark chocolate chips and serve! Store in the fridge up to 4 days. Enjoy! ...

We are doing a little day trip to charlotte today to be with my family and you better believe we are listening to the new Lover album the whole way ✨ who else is obsessed?!
I made us smoothies to take for the ride but high key wish I had this salad in front of me. This was my lunch allll week I am still not sick of it 🙌🏼 I like to dress it up with evoo, EBTB seasoning, and a heavy drizzle of coconut aminos but really any dressing would be 💯
