  • 2 cups Cauliflower Rice
  • 1/2 cup All Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Milk (from the can)
  • 2 tbsps Lime Juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsps Coconut Aminos
  • 1 1/2 tsps Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 Garlic (clove, minced)
  • 1 cup Bone Broth (divided)
  • 4 cups Baby Spinach (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups Chickpeas (cooked, rinsed)
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (chopped)

  • Cook the cauliflower rice according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a small pot over medium-low heat add the peanut butter, powdered peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, coconut aminos, maple syrup, red pepper flakes, garlic and half of the broth. Whisk until combined. Continue to heat until just warmed through, stirring often to prevent burning. Season with salt or additional lime juice if needed.
  • Heat a large skillet or pan with a lid over medium-high heat. Add the spinach, chickpeas and onion to the pan along with the remaining broth and cover with the lid. Steam for about 5 minutes or until the onions have softened and most of the broth has evaporated.

  • To serve, divide the rice between plates and top with the peanut chickpea mixture. Enjoy!

I’m reviewing Mastering Resilience, by Lorry Leigh Belhumeur, and sharing the steps you can take to not only heal yourself but ensure that you break the cycle of self-loathing for the next generation.

138. Phases of Progress

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it was easy, everyone would do it”?

This is true for almost anything that’s worth doing – starting a new job, renovating your house, and, yes, even losing weight.

The truth is that it’s usually not the end goal that makes everything feel unattainable, but rather the phases of progress you have to go through to reach your goal.

I know we all want our progress to be fast, easy, and predictable.

But it’s just not.

Every single one of us works through four phases of progress, some of which are much more trying than others.

I’m breaking them all down in this episode to help normalize exactly what it looks like to make progress that lasts.

Are you ready to lose fat for good?​

Take this quick quiz to see where you’re going wrong with weight loss & exactly what you need to do differently to see the progress that lasts!
