A Neat Recipe Reblog and a Quick Life Update.


Almond Pulp Bars | Good Girl Gone Green.

These look like a great idea for using up the leftover pulp from making almond milk. I do tend to make brown rice milk more often than almond, but these look like they may be well worth trying.


I’m super busy with work and school right now and I really feel badly that I haven’t been making blogging more of a priority for myself. It stinks that the things which are most spiritually nourishing, and fulfilling are usually the ones which are the first to be cut when the stress and imbalance hits.

I should be back onto a schedule I can actually have some breathing space in starting next week. I had to get really assertive and let my managers know that I can only work 3 very specific shifts per week rather than sticking to my usual wishy washy ways and trying to remain flexible.

Returning to school at age 41 and doing college/university level courses is proving to be a lot more work than I expected and truthfully, I’m having a really hard time not panicking and running away. I’m determined to do this, but it’s going to take some fancy footwork on my part to keep my marbles in the process.

I am seeing both a foot specialist and a holistic nutritionist this next month and that is MAJOR progress for me as I usually avoid doctors and offices like the plague. I just really want my self-nuturing skills to be up to par so I can live to be a healthy little old lady one day.

I’m doing my best to stay balanced, and I’m doing an ok job of it. I swear that some real updates will be coming in the near future.




About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
