#RECIPEFRIDAY: Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Peanut Butter 'Sundae'

It's Friday!

It's Friday and this week has taught me many lessons...

So take a seat. A coffee, tea.
And let me fill you in.

Here's what the past 7 days have taught me...

Lessons in gratitude. 

To be grateFUl for all things. Always. Every.single.day. Whether big, small, tangible or not.

Lessons in appreciation.

To appreciate what we have. Who we are surrounded by. To appreciate the energy and positivity that fills us.

Lessons in pauses.

To take a break. Relax. Rest. And know that it's okay to take time to re-charge. Even if it takes more than a day.

It's okay to press the refresh button.
Once. Twice. Three times.

Lessons in truths.

To be honest with ourselves. To be real. To learn from our truths. And grow stronger from them.

Lessons in relationships.

To honour those we love. Our family, our loves, our friends. To honour our relationships with all people.


Lesson in self-love.

To love myself. Both inside and out. Always. 

Lesson in patience.

To be patient in what we seek. Not to rush ourselves nor our expectations. To slow down. To live. To enjoy.

Lessons in heart.

To share the love within our hearts with others. And to allow love to enter our hearts too. 

Lessons in loss.

To remember those we have lost. That the moments and memories made will always be alive. In heart and in spirit.

Lessons in life.

To live our lives FUlly. Presently. And in the moment. To learn as we continue moving forward on our path. Whether we are going the right way, or the left way ;)

***

So now that I've filled you with words and lessons...

Please enjoy this simple yet delicious sundae bowl I came to make in my continued efforts to...

Slow down and enjoy. The moment.

And in this case...

Each and every bite ;)

    1. It's different. I like the Chocolate Stevia Powder more over the liquid version. Both are good but I like the taste of the powder version. That said, the lemon NuNaturals is awesome!

    1. It takes practice and I'm still practising!

      It's a Blogger Plugin'. It just lets you showcase other posts you've posted. I'm not sure if your host has it...

  22. I could not agree with you more about living our lives in the present and in the moment. The right now is the only thing that we really have. Great lessons and we all need to be reminded of them from time to time.
    I really like the looks of this recipe!
    I love all of the ingredients but haven’t ever tried a chocolate stevia. I will look for it!
