I read a quote recently that really angered me.
So I read it again. And again. And again.
By the fourth read my anger subsided and the weight of the quote settled in. There was no denying it…it was the truth. The harsh truth.
I’ll share the quote with you now (from Conscious Living, by Gay Hendricks) and you’ll see what I mean…
“You always get what you’re committed to getting.”
If you’re broke and not liking it, you’re committed to being broke and not liking it. If you’re out of shape and unsatisfied, you’re committed to being out of shape and unsatisfied. If you’re eating processed foods and feeling uncomfortable, you’re committed to eating processed foods and feeling uncomfortable.
It stings a little, right? To accept full responsibility for your lot in life is no small undertaking. It’s huge. It’s uncomfortable. It’s truth. #TheHarshTruth
By understanding this truth deep in your bones you gain a better understanding of how life truly works. And you realize your ability to turn the dial in the direction that you want to go, simply by fully committing yourself.
What are you committed to?
To eating a healthy, real food diet. To maintaining a healthy, disease-free body. To teaching your kids healthy habits.
You will achieve whatever it is you fully commit yourself to…and if it doesn’t happen then you weren’t truly committed.
I’m committed to creating and sharing real healthy recipes. I made this commitment because it supports another one of my commitments: to ensure that my children eat wholesome, nutritious foods and learn healthy eating habit to sustain them for life.
And so I take the time to get into the kitchen day after day – in spite of my publishing deadlines, in spite of my full inbox, in spite of my to-do list – because I’m committed.
What are you committed to?
- Separate the yolks from the whites. Use the whites for something awesome, like Fluffy Egg White Biscuits or Angel Food Cake. Or make yourself a yummy egg white omelet with bacon. Mmmmmm, bacon.
- Combine the egg yolks and honey in a saucepan. Whisk together until smooth. Mix in the coconut flour.
- Combine the coconut milk, vanilla extract, and lemon zest in a medium saucepan. Place the milk mixture over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat.
- Pour the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, stirring while you pour. Place the mixture on low heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Don’t boil; just simmer.
- Remove from heat and cool for a few minutes. Continue to stir occasionally as it cools. Once cooled to room temperature, pour into individual custard cups. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or until serving. Garnish with fresh fruit and mint leaves. Enjoy!
