Protein Pumpkin Chia Pudding

Pumpkin Chia Pudding


So I found this recipe, and as many of you know I deal with food allergies, so I am always looking for great food ideas  - since stopping at the grocery store and just picking up any snack, would not be the ideal way for me to go.

So I search, and try new recipes all the time, and then tweak them to work for me, the kids and my partner.

We found a great chia recipe in one of my Ayurveda cookbooks a few months ago, and when someone shared this pumpkin one, we tried, made a few adjustments(more like added into), and have fallen in love with the ease of this late morning-mid afternoon snack.

We always start by making the recipe the way it calls, then add or take away what we don't need, write it down on our recipe for next time and we are good. This one, we really had no need for changing, I did add a little more milk the second time, and since then have made it with cacao powder and banana(as an addition too) , and this weekend we are trying it with cranberries and almonds.

Food should be fun, and trying new things, adding new things, sometimes it works out great, and other times not as well, so write notes, try new things, and always enjoy..

Ayurveda, lets dive deeper

So what is Ayurveda?

I get this question a lot, or I hear - Ayurveda is to complicated. Yes, Ayurveda can be complicated, but I don't feel it should be and doesn't have to be.

Lets dive into Ayurveda.
First, how did I get to Ayurveda, lets go back a little ways. In 2006, I started my training at the Maharishi Ayurveda Center in Lancaster, MA. I had just finished a program at Dana Farber with Energy work and massage for cancer clients, when I started the training at the Ayurvedic center. The similarities between the two made for the perfect transition. Both looked at the importance of balance, digestion, proper sleep and the positive outlook of the emotions. As I dove into Ayurveda it was clear that being in balance with yourself and your environment effected every element of health. This was the beginning of a path in a  holistic lifestyle.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest known healing systems dating back thousands of years to India. This system was …

Trust in Self

This has been a practice for me this past year. Learning to trust in self is key to allowing my personal and business to continue to move forward and grow.

As we move out of 2018 and are into 2019, we where welcomed with an incredible lunar eclipse of the blood wolf moon. This is energetically a time to stop and reboot, to speak to your true self.

In this past year, I moved my business from one location to another location while opening a second location and launching my herbal business into the public online world. While it is all very exciting and quite the learning (and yes mistakes where made, but those are to learn from also), growing and self expansion.

During this growth, I had to learn to trust. Trusting my self, could I do this, how will my clients respond, can I grow enough business and do I have a strong enough support team to make this happen.

Well here I am, three  and a half months in, and taking stock in self, that 'Yes" I can do this. Now, I have not said th…

Om

Like the Mantra on my foot, it is the lotus coming up from the mud, patience, and beauty comes through. This is for me powerful. Metta Wellness stands for "loving kindness", with the lotus this is always a symbol for me that working through and staying on your path beauty opens.

Metta Wellness has been in a process of change, always moving forward, learning, and exploring along the way. As we moved into a new location, adding a second location and launching Metta Herbals into the online market and general public. Change, patience, and trust is my Mantra for this opening.

Lets step back a little. In May Metta Wellness moved into its new location in Shrewsbury,calming, easily located and just the right size.  This space also allows for the growth in Metta Wellness and Herbals. Taking time to set up and shift into this space (still organizing a few small details), adjusting and refocusing on the space and the path for Metta Wellness & Herbals. Change was our Mantra in May, …
