Influence. We are all influenced.
I find the best sources for books to read, meals to eat, and self improvement come from learning what someone who inspires me is enjoying. So in light of sharing, here are a few of my current favorites:
Chasing goals + setbacks, the sun still pulls the planets
On happiness and what really matters
Lauren’s advice to ladies in their twenties
How you do anything is how you do everything
Small Steps, Bravery + Creativity, an email that finds me exactly where I’m at right now
The Art of Work, Jeff Goins — Jeff has a lot to say about the work of finding your calling, confirming the idea that you don’t just know, and for the ones who’ve “made it”, the getting there did not simply happen. Work.
Healing with Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford — On the top of my list of essential reading. I’ve been reading random chapters and sections continuously since 2009, and finally sat down and read it cover to cover last year. Having been done, I’ve picked it back up as before, using it as a reference almost weekly.
Chopped Kale Salad with Edamame + Roots
Strawberry Asparagus Buckwheat Salad
Flavour Bomb Greens N’ Noodles, one of the ways I use up all the spring radish + turnip tops
Quinoa + Chorizo Salad, updated for spring
Spring Pizza, a gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-free version that came out so different and delicious that I may share it soon.
