Eat This: Lose Weight – Zucchini, Chickpea Salad

Eat Healthy!

Eat Healthy!

I’ve gone mad with power, “spiralizing” my way through the kitchen.   Cucumber noodles, zucchini noodles, beet noodles, alike!  I don’t generally endorse products, but I’m having so much fun with the Spiralizer,  the best gadget/kitchen aide that I’ve purchased in eons, that I just had to share the excitement and the vegetable recipes.

Because, Our Lady of Weight Loss devotees, and Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), if you want to increase your healthy food intake and/or lose weight, then eat more vegetables!   Sometimes it’s that simple!

This Zucchini & Garbanzo Bean (a.k.a. Chickpea) Salad is a great summer salad.  No hot oven blasting, just you spiralizing, in the kitchen, humming a happy tune!

Ingredients:
3 small green zucchinis, spiralized
1 can (14 or 15 oz.) Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 medium size orange bell pepper, seeded, and cut into long skinny slices
(Red or yellow work well, but orange is one of my favorite colors.)
3 gloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon, freshly squeezed
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped fine

Instructions:
Spiralize the zucchini. Place in large bowl.
Add garbanzo beans, chopped red onion, and orange pepper.
In small bowl, whisk together the remainder of ingredients.
Drizzle dressing over zucchini mix. Gently toss with love.
Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours.
Stir or shake it about as you remember to do so.  (Casual cooking here!)

Enjoy!

Tasty Tidbit: How to Measure Success?

abstract jello

Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, helping you to rise above and go beyond.

How do you measure success? For some people, money is a sign of success; for others success is measured by their accomplishments, their relationships, the amount of happiness (another subjective happening), the deeds and services that they have carried out for others and/or, particularly for those who have serendipitously found their way to Our Lady of Weight Loss, success may be measured by the number on the scales of injustice.

The thing is, if you are not living your “truth” daily, if you do not allow your personal masterpiece to unfold, to reveal itself, to evolve in all its glory, then all the successes you may achieve, including your “thinness,” will fall short and fall hard.

Success emerges from authenticity. We are here, on earth–in human form, to share our clunky, chunky selves, our eccentricities. You are a unique sliver of and from the Universe.  Allow yourself to “become.” Experience true success.

What does success mean to you?  Feel free to weigh in!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Are Alien Forces Force Feeding You?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

“But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Buddha

Exploring Your Belief Systems

A belief system is a series of ideas that your mind has organized in order to project an image of what is ‘real.’  It encompasses everything you think about yourself, others and the world-at-large. It is filled with should have’s and ought to’s.

These groups of thoughts (ideas) that we believe to be true come from and are formed through our interactions with others, such as our parents, friends, teachers, institutions, newspapers, television, etc.

Our beliefs are formed throughout our childhood, and generally acted out in adulthood without much thought or examination. These “systems” are mighty powerful, and they have a profound impact on the way in which we lead our lives. Our beliefs tell us how to feel, behave, and they are the foundation from which we approach our life, our world.

To change how we feel and how we act and react to situations, we must first understand what our core belief systems are and where they come from.

If we do not challenge our belief systems, they will remain unchanged. You may find that some of your beliefs are empowering. Good! Fabulous!!! Keep those beliefs and build on them.

It’s the outdated and limiting beliefs that are in need of an overhaul! Your belief about your ability to lose weight and keep it off strongly influences your internal dialogue, which in turn, strongly influences your choices.

With regard to permanent weight removal, slimming down, letting go of the excess weight, I have a few questions for you to chew on, ingest and answer! They may shed “lite” on your weight loss belief systems that you may want to rethink, revise, and reword.

Do you believe that you are in control of your weight loss?
-or -

Do you believe that some alien force has taken control and force fed you?

***

Do you believe that you can set realistic goals, measurable goals and achieve them, no matter what?
-or-

Do you believe that when things aren’t going your way, when you’re having a bad day, you’re just gonna’ have to eat?

***

Do you believe that you can lose weight and keep it off?
-or -

Do you believe all those photos of heavy relatives of yesterday determines your weight and size?

***

Do you believe that your past attempts at weight loss were learning experiences and those who are successful are often not successful the first time out?
-or-

Do you believe that your inability to lose and keep off those extra pounds is a sign of your being a loser (the ‘bad’ kind of loser) and that you are doomed?

***

Do you believe that you are really buying those cookies for the kids? (Oh, come on!)
-or-
Nothing!!!

Feel free to share your thoughts/belief systems with Our Lady of Weight Loss and Kick in the Tush members from across the land!  Sharing burns calories and creates good weight loss karma!
