Grace & Gratitude
Stress affects our health and wellbeing. That’s a given. And rest is critical to counter those effects. Sometimes it’s just a matter of recognizing the connection between our minds and our bodies. Other times it’s making the (often difficult) effort to acknowledge that we are not perfect, then connecting with others, sharing what we know … and also listening to learn from others.
It’s important to find community, especially in these trying times. Look for the good in people. The common ground.
Try to start each day with grace and gratitude. This week’s challenge features much more on beginning our days fresh and mindfully.

disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency

Did you know with Donna
Did you know avocados contain 20 different vitamins and minerals? On top of being loaded with healthy fats, they in fact contain vitamins A, B, C, E, K, more potassium than bananas, lots of fiber and more!
RECIPE: Sweet Pea & Avocado Mousse
For fiber, antioxidants & loads of nutrients
- Start with with organic frozen peas. Blanche them and place in ice bath (to maintain the vibrant green color) or steam.
- Place in blender or Vitamix
- Add juice of 1 1/2 limes
- Add one ripe medium-sized avocado
- Add cilantro as desired (great for removing toxic heavy metals from the body)
- Blend for approximately 30 seconds to mousse consistency
- Stuff mixture into raw baby peppers (rich in vitamin C!) or use as a dip
Peas are a great source of fiber, high in antioxidants, very low in fat and increase vitamin A content.
