You are Worth the Squeeze

When life gives you lemons …  

It’s a term we hear so often. Probably a little bit more than we would like. It is truly so cliché. Believe it or not, I’m a fan of a good cliché. I’m a super fan of a good quote. Why? Often times, those overused phrases are rooted in some truth. Here’s my take, when life gives you lemons, do whatever you darn well choose. Lemonade, foot mask, marinade, make-up, fresh juice, face mask, shower cleaner, curd or bread. The sky is literally the limit. There are many things in life we underestimate, many things that I sometimes think we get sad or frustrated about when we shouldn’t. Maybe being overlooked for a promotion is affording you time to become a rock star in your current role. 

February’s focus is on self-love. This February we are squeezing all of the goodness we can out of ourselves. Take this month to turn that oops moment or that bad “thing” that fell into your lap into an aha moment. Turn it into something glorious. Take it as an opportunity to love on yourself some more and make yourself better able to receive what He has in store for you right around the corner. Join me as we take all of the lemons that life threw at us last year and turn them into delicious opportunities. After all, you are worth the squeeze! See you in the kitchen!

Here’s a recipe to get your week off to a great start …

Scrambled Eggs w/ Spinach

Grocery List:

2 eggs plus 1 extra egg white
2 Tbsp cream or coconut milk
1 Tsp fresh lemon juice
Pinch of turmeric and cayenne
1 handful spinach
1 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt & pepper 



Whisk eggs, cream (or coconut milk), turmeric and cayenne pepper together. Heat pan on medium, add oil, sauté spinach for 2 minutes, add the rest of oil then pour the egg mixture on top. Turn the heat down to low, let the egg mixture sit until set on bottom. Occasionally lift edge of eggs and swirl pan -this step is major- do so until the egg is almost cooked through. Remove from heat and transfer into a bowl. Season with sea salt & lemon juice!

    I enjoyed this! Definitely a great reminder to have the right perspective about our circumstances. (Also never thought to add lemon juice on my eggs….trying it!)
