IG: FIND YOUR SOUL’S FOOD✨ I think this is one of the toughest things as adults. We get so “busy”, live to work, to pay the bills, to check off the ‘to-do lists’… that we leave little time for soul nourishing activities. And then after years and years of buzzing through life, we forget what activities even nourish our souls. But we NEED those to be happy, healthy human beings; the activities that don’t necessarily make us money (though if they can, bonus) but feed our spirits. Remembering or finding what these are (since they’re different for each of us) can be a challenge, but 💯 worth the search. I spent the last few years searching deeply for what feeds my soul and I’ve discovered a few things. One of them? The garden🌱— now I make sure to incorporate this into my life any way I can. • What feeds your soul and how do you incorporate that into your life? ✨

IG: Obsessed with these super clean, delicious and of course coconut flour tortillas by @therealcoconut. They actually taste like flour tortillas, especially when warmed, and mega bonus they aren’t $8 for a pack of 4 like paleo coconut wraps 😱 (In Kauai I think I paid $4.99 for a pack of 12, totally reasonable!) I’ll be missing these babies when I head back to Canada. This may be something I smuggle over the border with each visit, like my cases of @kerrygoldusa grassfed butter💁🏻‍♀️. Off topic side note, why the heck is it so hard to get grass fed butter in Canada?

IG: AMINAL LOVE✨❤️ It just happens a lot. Also that one time in the last 6 months that I actually straightened my hair, just to remember what it would feel like. It stayed kinda straight for about 1 minute and then the humidity won 🐎

Simple, Gut Healing Chicken Bone Broth

Laura Franklin, CNPAnytime, Drinks, Easy Meals, Gluten-Free, Recipes, Side Dishes, Snacks0 Comments

bone broth jars

Want to learn all about bone broth before you make it? Read my original article “Bone Broth: Everything You Need to Know” first. The quick and dirty: Bone broth is an abundant source of minerals, like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium in forms that your body can easily absorb (YES! We want this). It’s rich in glycine and proline, amino acids … Read More

IG: Do you use a vision board? 🌈🌙✨ • This is my most recent vision board that I re-calibrated some time last year. It’s mindfully and carefully crafted with quotes, photos, inspirations, words, symbols + anything that brings resonance to me. For example, the word ‘love’ comes up a lot, because it’s the number one priority in my life (love for myself, those around me, the planet.. you get it, it’s all about love ❤️). • Vision boards are used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal(s). You display visual representations of whatever you want to be, do, or have in your life and in doing so, these things just seem to appear/happen/be (see: law of attraction). I hang this board right in front of my desk at home, so I see it a lot. • When I get back to Canada, I’m going to re-calibrate this board to my latest dreams, aspirations, plans and goals. I highly recommend the vision board process, especially if you’re a visual person like moi. • If you use a vision board to help you manifest your dreams, let me know in the comments below

Laura Franklin, CNPAnytime, Breakfast, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Recipes, Snacks0 Comments

This recipe uses coconut flour, a superfood grain-free baking alternative that’s simply dried, ground coconut flesh. Coconut flour is high in fibre, protein and healthy fats. It’s also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories, and has a low score on the … Read More

IG: Just over a week until I’m reunited with this guy😻! NevNev, aka Wellness Cat loves a nice green smoothie and deep relaxation on my my acupressure mat (seen here). His favourite snacks are organic cucumbers 🥒 and watermelon 🍉. AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE HIM! Also, he turns 7 years old in a week. • (He’s been hangin’ with Gramma Lynne and Grampa Joe for the past 3.5 months

IG: Do you journal? 🤔 📖 ✍️ When I was younger, I used to journal all the time; it just felt so natural. But in the last 10 years or so, it’s become less of a natural action. I’ve been blocked for some reason, except for in the moments when I feel like I’m facing a major crisis and have no idea what to do except put my feelings onto paper, STAT. But I’m trying to comfortably work it back into my life at any/all times, not just at panic moments, and be way less critical of myself and the things I write about… free to flow. Today I wrote a gratitude list and then a list of positive feelings/emotions/mindsets I strive to have/keep/be (things like conscious, secure, joyful, prosperous). I like to think I’m pulling these super power words into my life by conjuring them up in my brain and writing them down in big bold capital letters— law of attraction + manifestation + brain dump + creative freedom practice. • My tips for encouraging more writing/getting your butt journaling? 1. Get a journal/notebook/paper that is comfortable to write in/inspiring or to YOU for whatever reason. This one says grow plus has gold and flowers on it and is super portable so it called to me! 2. Get a pen that feels good to write with. I like rollerball pens or sharpie pens, personally. This makes a big difference for me. 3. Let it flow. Just a little each day is excellent, and don’t be critical or judgey on yourself about your handwriting, what you’re writing etc. Aim for even a sentence a day to start; it’s such a healthy, healing practice! • If you journal, let me know your tips below
