After a very meaningful day with @sherricesiome at her last Manifesto and Mapping workshop, I have been looking at and diving deep into what I want to create in my next year. I am starting now. Each day I want to make choices and priorities even more powerfully, so to help stay focused I am starting the year with a 40 day self-challenge of aligning with my soul, aligning with my intentions/integrity and making it a #fuckingfabulousfall join me if it resonates! The #autumnalignment40 starts now! Thanks for the inspiration @sherricesiome and I can't wait for even more guidance and ass kicking (with love of course) from you this year! #inspired #upspiral #goals #challenge #instachallenge #yyj #manifestoandmapping #lizzdunich

A creamy, delicious, vegan Mac & Cheese recipe that is sure to please all crowds. Instead of a sauce filled with cheese, flour and cream, this one is loaded with beta-carotene rich carrots, protein packed cashews and potassium filled potatoes...and yumminess!
Boil until all veggies are cooked and soft, but not falling apart in the water. Drain veggies and RESERVE water. Not only does that water hold lots of flavour (simular to a weak veggie stock), it is also loaded with nutrients from the cooking veggies.
Boil fresh water and cook desired noodles following the instructions on the package (as cooking instructions vary between size and types of pasta. Be sure to drain pasta as soon as noodles are al dente.
In the blender or food processor add:
Plate and garnish with any of the following:
*If you are not a practicing vegan, and are choosing an option like this solely looking for a healthier option than grandma's traditional Mac & Cheese, you could always place the mixed pasta and sauce in an oven proof dish, sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese and bake at 375 degrees C uncovered until the cheese is lightly browned...no one will ever know it's carrots and cashews instead of cheese on the inside! #sneakymomtrick
There is something forever sacred about a Sunday morning for me. Perhaps the feeling stems from ritual during childhood. Perhaps because Sunday's always seem more quiet...as if Saturday is an extension of the week, fitting in all the scheduled "weekend activities". Perhaps because they are filled with memories of cozy, campfire mornings with my tent nearby. Whatever the reason, I love them.
In choosing my new home months ago, little did I know how supported this Sunday morning love would be. Every Sunday morning the local church bells sing to me. Now that fall is dawning, the birds sing along too.
As I sat this morning in quiet stillness (however briefly solo before two littles joined me), it felt so peaceful. Perhaps I am not kneeling at an alter. Perhaps I am not seated in full lotus in a cave. However, seated in my old camp chair, on my little deck with the air so fresh from a night of heavy rainfall, savouring my hot coffee and being serenaded by the bells and bird, it was definitely sacred.
Here's to a simple sacredness... And to hot coffee on a crisp Sunday morning!
I am a life mobilizer, yogini, teacher and coach, GROOVE goddess, Reiki practitioner, business owner/operator and above all a mumma of two bright, beautiful lights. I believe in people’s ability to exceed beyond their own limitations of themselves to live a life happier and more abundant life than ever thought possible!
