2. Amazingly Good. Wonderful.



“You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, and the people you meet. You are what you take from these. You are a collective of every experience you have ever had in your life. You are every second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of experience and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind until they overflow and you have no choice but to create and show the world who you have become”  ~Author Unknown

Destiny & Desire


I am on Day 14 of Deepak Chopra and Oprah’s Destiny & Desire 21 day Meditation Challenge, and so far I am LOVING it!  Its all about connecting with your deepest desire, helping you unlock your greatest potential and turn dreams into reality.  Each session is around 20 minutes ( I love starting my day with it) with Oprah speaking and than Chopra explaining the new centring thought of that day, digging deeper into ourselves each day.  I only have 8 days left, and I will continue to make it apart of my daily AM routine.  I highly recommend this challenge to anyone who wants to bring more awareness, insight, creativity, calmness, & inspiration in their life. Namaste ;-)

Salmon Crusted Chia Seeds with Asian greens and Tamari Dressing


3 tbsp  white chia seeds
3 tbsp black chia seeds
Four  skinless salmon fillets
2 bunches choy sum washed and trimmed
3 tbsp sunflower oil, divided
1 1/4-inch (3-cm) piece ginger, peeled and julienned

3 tbsp (50 mL) tamari
1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) Chinese rice wine

1.  Combine the white and black chia seeds on a plate. Press each salmon fillet in the chia seeds to evenly coat one side, then set aside. Remove the stems from the choy sum.


2.  Cut choy stems in half if long and reserve. To make the tamari dressing, put the oyster sauce, tamari, rice wine and sugar in a small bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar.


3. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Cook the salmon, chia side down, for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes.


4. Set cooked salmon aside on a warmed plate and keep warm. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds.


5.  Add the choy sum stems and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the choy sum leaves and stir-fry for 1 minute more or until almost wilted. Add half the dressing and toss to combine.


6. To serve, divide the choy sum among serving plates, top each with a piece of salmon and drizzle over a little of the remaining dressing. Serve with noodles or steamed rice.
