Break Blog.11: Impatient

So, its really starting to bug me that I have to just write about pretty average things in my blogs. I miss researching and doing assignments, and feeling like I was really starting to progress towards a more interesting career.  I still do research, but not to the extent I want.  I think when I go on my road trip in 2 weeks that I’m really going to take the time to review some books from school and my posted articles to keep my mind sharp.  I just really love talking to people about herbal medicine and supplementation, and it really makes me feel good to give people advice, to the extent of my knowledge.  I read this and I know I sound whiny, which bugs me, but I can’t help my thinking.  I get bored easily, I get depressed, and I’m impatient as hell.  Any-ways to actually talk about herbal medicine and supplementation, I started taking Chaste tree berry tincture for my hormones, about 40 drops morning and night, and it has really been helping with my roller-coaster of PMS. I have also been taking GABA for about a month and my anxiety has decreased 10-fold, so I definitely suggest these if your experiencing these issues like me.  What else can I say about my life lately?  My sister got married on the weekend, hence why this entry is late, and it was a truly beautiful ceremony.  She looked absolutely gorgeous, and I am extremely happy to welcome her husband into my family.  Honestly , not much else has been happening or on my mind.  I’m kind of just still in limbo with everything because I am currently living between 2 houses right now and I can’t do most of my hobbies, like gardening or making herbal goods, because I don’t have anywhere to garden, its not the right time for a lot of veggies, and I don’t have a work space.  Other-than that things are all good, and I have to remind myself something a wise woman (room-mate) once told me.  She said, “it’s not that your sad, it’s that your impatient.” So I guess I’ll just keep on truck’in.  Thanks for reading, and be aware and eat with care 🙂

Popsicle: Hibiscus passion-fruit tea with pureed berries

20150826_090039 20150826_090105

Ingredients:

-3 Starbucks hibiscus passion-fruit tea bags or any hibiscus tea you enjoy

-1 liter of boiled water

-1 cup of frozen berries, mixed or whatever kind you like best

-7 packets of Stevia or 14 grams

-tall jug

-hand blender or blender

-aluminum foil

-popsicle sticks of some kind

Combine boiling water and tea bags into jug.  Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes for tea to steep. Remove tea bags and add berries.  Using a hand blender, puree berries into tea, or put berries into a free standing blender, add some of the hot tea, and blend, then pour back into whole mixture.  Pour the warm mixture into individual serving cups and place a square of aluminum foil over the tops.  With the chosen stick, pierce through the foil and stand straight up.  Place the cups in the freezer until frozen solid.  Remove from molds by running hot water on the outside of the cup.  Then enjoy!  This is a refreshing treat and contains no sugar!  Its a little sour and a little sweet.  Thanks, and be aware and eat with care 🙂

Break Blog.10: Not much to talk about…..

So this week was pretty chill.  Just worked and chilled.  Did some running around and finished my speech for my sisters wedding next week.  I feel like everyday just goes by like a dream.  I wake up, eat, work, come home, shower, eat, and sleep.  I feel like this isn’t really living.  That I’m in some strange movie like Groundhog Day.  Don’t get me wrong I am happy with the way things are, but I just don’t think everyday should be the same.  I’m not a fan of routine, I find it tedious and I get bored easily.  What I am really excited for is my road trip with my love.  I can’t wait to wake up in a new place almost everyday and just fly by the seat of my pants, doing whatever we want to do in the moment.  That is life to me.  I understand that everyone does not have this luxury, but I don’t have kids or many responsibilities for that matter, which makes me happy.  I do want kids one day, and I can’t wait to get a dog, but for now the things are the way they are and I’m okay with that.  I’m done overthinking, which is what I did a lot of in Australia, it wasn’t healthy.  I like to be in the present more so then being anxious about the future, or dwelling on the past.  Hope your present gives you what your need, and if you don’t like it, and you can, then please change it.  Life is too short.  Thanks for reading, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
