Your time is so precious and knowing that makes curating each Sunday Scrolls that much sweeter. I so enjoy wading through the inter webs to source the really juicy nuggets – only zoning in on the tiny, delicious tidbits in hopes of awakening, exciting and inspiring us all. November is such a nesting month, a month of gratitude and togetherness and quiet blessings. It’s also World Vegan Month and “Good Nutrition Month” (amongst many others!) – we’re here for all of it and you’ll find the gamut inside. Come on in!
Boy have I missed crafting new smoothie recipes to share. Over the past several weeks we’ve been taste-testing new boosters, protein options, and ways to sneak in more veggies that even the most discerning tastebuds won’t catch. Here’s one of our favorite recent combos for protein, aminos, digestion, and a zing of energy to start the day! This makes a blender-full with 4 servings:
- 2 scoops of new vegan vanilla protein powder (love that this one has stress-reducing adaptogens!)
- 3 T. Super Seeds
- 1/4 cup macadamia nut butter
- 3 cups milk of choice (I used Ripple Kids Omega plant-based milk)
- 2 cups frozen cauliflower
- 1 avocado
- 1 T. inulin
- 1 T. cinnamon
The consistency churns out smooth and ice-creamy! Come back for another cleansing combo this week to help detoxify and renew.
Looking ahead to the holidays, how sweet are these cookie tins for gifting holiday treats?! It’s the handle for me. I think these would be perfect for a thoughtful neighbor drop-off, maybe your book club, or to have on hand if someone surprises you unexpectedly and you want to return the gesture.
And this Vegan Thanksgiving Wrap recipe is going to be on repeat all month long – it is exceptional!
Also, if you’re looking for holiday sides – how gorgeous is this Butternut Squash Tart (+ 14 other squash sides) 😍.
Have you seen Grow With Jo? I love her energy and how effective (and EASY) her workouts are. If you feel like you need to switch things up and bang out a quick session – try one of these free YouTube videos. I have been focused on less strict, more fun, and weaving workouts in wherever they fit. It’s a busy season but our vessel thrives on movement!
Speaking of making exercise fun – Grey discovered Cosmic Kids Yoga and we have been loving the experience of stories + movement each morning. I love the way the host weaves mindfulness into each session (and it’s a great workout to boot!).
What has been filling your cup lately? A reminder that when we actively seek the good and surround ourselves with people, places and things that spark JOY, we alert our Reticular Activating System to look for more of the same. Good begets good!
Rainy Day Rx to get back to your well + joyful self 🌦
Someone please buy these darling letters for your holiday display! We have a family motto of “one Penske” to fit everything in one moving truck when we move, and I’m trying not to add to the boxes. But these are too sweet!
A friend sent me this book on Ayurveda and I have learned so many ancient wellness nuggets! If you’re a beginner like me, this guide has been a wealth of information and spells out all of the protocols and practices so beautifully!
