We’ve all been visited by the little green monster. Envy creeps up on you and you find yourself flooded with emotions; anger, resentment, discontentment…
Envy can be painful, disheartening and destructive. It can arrive laced with blame, and our natural affinity to push those feelings outward and envelope them with anger can sometimes leave relationships irrevocably tarnished. Even in the most innocent and simplistic cases, the resentment and self-doubt boiled up by envy can leave us feeling incomplete and hopeless.
But I’d like to think that if we take this heavy experience as an opportunity to grow, it can also be a powerful tool towards achieving our goals.
In order to thrive with Graves Disease I’ve completely radicalized my life and created a healthy lifestyle that supported my well-being. I went from a junk food loving couch potato to a health foodie with an appreciation for meditation, yoga and fresh air. I’ve created a self care routine that would have baffled me pre-Graves as well as embraced everything from dry body brushing, to oil pulling, to essential oils and more. My healthy lifestyle revamp coupled with an awesome medical team has allowed me to regain my sense of well-being. I will never look back.

One of the things I love about creating new, healthy recipes is testing the prototype. I adore spending time in the kitchen with my husband, trying out ingredients and brainstorming new recipes.

And do we EVER have a winner! These drool-worthy, bite sized balls of deliciousness are in-freaking-credible! Are you down for some healthy, delicious goodness? Give these babies a try!
