February is about Love.
I am so jazzed up about this month because February for me is about Love. Maybe because it is Valentine’s Day or possibly because I turn 38 next month. I always take a deep look at my life and see what is working and what is not working.
This past year was amazing for me in so many ways. I finally feel like Florida is becoming a home for me after leaving Philly 2 1/2 years ago. This past year was about letting go and that does not happen easily for me. I am so stubborn that I need to feel broken to let go and change my ways. I actually need to see that my old ways are not working and that change must happen.
I keep saying my this to myself, “Teach an old dog new tricks.”
Feel free to say this “mantra” to yourself everyday.
Everyday I have an opportunity to change my ways and so do you. Change can be difficult but it does not have to be. Change can be exciting. Remember when you first kissed somebody and you had butterflies in your belly…change can feel that like.
This makes me think of my clients and watching them transform.
“I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Rachel Feldman over the last several months. Rachel has guided me ever so gently on my path to better living through better health. Rachel’s commitment & knowledge helped me to begin making choices in my life that have allowed me to feel excited, interested & willing to live the life I was intended to live. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to take this personal journey with Rachel ~ you are worth it ~ something that I had forgotten and was reminded with Rachel’s help.” -Sheila, Philadelphia
Sinful Delight without the Guilt
Chocolate Cashew Butter Protein Balls
6 Tablespoons cashew butter
4 Tablespoon cacao (or unsweetened cocoa)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 Tablespoon ground flax, chia or almond meal
1 scoop pea protein or hemp protein
15 drops of liquid stevia or 1 tbsp honey or agave
sprinkle of sea salt
Combine all of the ingredients into a large bowl. Mix completely and slowly add water until desired consistency of a protein ball (about 6 tbsp of water). If you need more water, then add it slowly. Mold the dough into little balls and put them onto a wax paper. Then place them onto a cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Eat them right away or store them in the freezer or fridge for a great afternoon snack or dessert.
You can sprinkle with cocao, unsweetened coconut or pop them into your mouth for a healthy, guilt free and tasty snack. This is my healthy version of the Think Thin Bar without the junk
