Teaching myself to work against having an agenda for anyone else’s growth and learning has been incredibly freeing. Of course we have certain desires for our family members and our close friends. But those are our own projections of what the other person needs. 
We are not here to be each other’s keepers. We are here to love and nurture and protect and hold each other close, but we are not here to forge another beings way. 
What I can do is choose how best to follow MY inner guidance every day along this path, checking in respectfully, mindfully and being open to change. Willing and happy to interact with others in this human experience, however we each choose to have it. I have opinions. I am stubborn in ways. But not so stubborn that I cannot be swayed or moved. I have chosen to let go of needing so much control all the time. In learning that I actually have very little to no control, I find a sense of comfort, freeness and a power in that. 
I choose to respond lovingly and without fear. I will do my best.

Lemon Lime Fennel Leek and Summer Squash Soup with ginger, garlic and dill. Topped with fennel dill sauerkraut. Gut health, y’all. Could totally be made with chicken stock and shredded chicken, too, just trying to accommodate all dietary prefer maxed in my class. #vegan #paleo #paleolifestyle #food #foods #lunch #dinner #eatclean #cleaneating #gaps #whole30 #leakygut #guthealth #foodie #drink #eat #eating #health #healthy #organic #holistic

Sweet Uncle,
Your year mark happened and we are missing you. Beautiful beautiful soul. You silliest of sillies. Raunchy, spunky, story teller and wise elder at once. 
You said, find your pure gift to the world and give it. I found my gift, Uncle. And I will. With the same passion and love and commitment you had for your family, for your art. 
Thank you for walking this earth, and touching many lives. I imagine you are a favorite in the spirit world, as well. Loving you, dear Robert. 
Aho mitakuye oyasin.

Recipe development for my final demo that’s not quite working out. The concept is there: savory pancakes made with pumpkin purée, tahini, coconut flour (I can’t have nuts atm) eggs, ginger, salt pepper. Layered with beets in a balsamic, dill, tahini and olive oil dressing, balsamic caramelized onions, avocado and topped with sauerkraut. Probably will add beet greens. I dunno. More tomorrow. Im over thinkin it. Step back😏. #paleo #pastureraised #eggs #coconutoil #culinaryschool #school #demo #avocado #beets #sauerkraut #probiotics #guthealth #wholefood #jerf #dinner #food #foods #eat #eating #eatclean #cleaneating
