Understanding and Combating Food Issues
“people self medicate with food instead of fueling the body ”
Try to figure out the underlying issues with any food addictions you may have. Some people binge on certain foods and others have serious issues with certain foods acting as "triggers" for massive cravings.
When you find yourself falling into an issue and overeating on junk foods, sit back for a moment and think why you are doing what you're doing. Ask yourself if you're depressed, happy, sad or angry while you're consuming these unhealthy items. By trying to self-diagnose your food issues, you should start building important habits and behaviors into helping you conquer unhealthy eating patterns.
Have an excellent week.

Don't Get Discouraged With Your Progress
Remember that it didn't take 2 weeks to pack on those extra 20 pounds, so it definitely will not take only 2 weeks to lose them! Focus on a solid fitness/nutrition plan and adhere to it for at least 8-12 weeks.
When you first start out, you should expect your body to really resist change to some degree. Trust your plan and don't be discouraged if you're not losing weight fast enough. Your body will eventually switch into a fat burning mode. Be patient and the results will show!
What is Soul Consciousness?
"You are a holistic being with both nondualistic energy and the energy of the physical plane as a part of your being at your disposal."
-- Wayne Dyer
Andrew Schneider helps us understand our human experience of being soul. He says, "Soul consciousness arises when we stand facing in opposite directions at the same time - toward eternity and toward time, toward infinity and toward space, toward unity and toward complexity. We stand in that dualism without being dualistic, for in consciousness we can accommodate the opposites. We do this by identifying with both. This identification results in the experience of being an individual while at the same time being the whole, and finding no contradiction in this experience."
"Give your difference, welcome my difference, unify all difference in the larger whole -- such is the law of growth. The unifying of difference is the eternal process of life -- the creative synthesis, the highest act of creation."
-- M. P. Follett

Peppers of all kinds are really coming into season and now is the time to make tasty soups with these beauties. Here's a recipe that is tried and true. I love this soup and if you are not a big fan of curry you can add an alternative spicy.
1 ½ pounds red, yellow, or orange sweet peppers (about 5-6)
½ cup chopped red onion
1 cup water
2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
1 ½ tsp. curry powder or, to taste
½ tsp. dried thyme, crushed
½ tsp. dried marjoram, crushed
½ tsp. Steviva Brand Stevia Blend
1 tsp. garlic powder
3 ounces cream cheese
1 2/3 cups whipping cream
Sour cream (optional)
Halve peppers, seed, and remove internal membranes. Place on aluminum-foil covered cookie sheet and roast at 450 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes, until skins start to turn black and bubble. Place in paper bag to steam and cool. When the peppers can be handled, remove skins and slice peppers into strips and place in a pan with onion, water, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend, bouillon granules, curry powder, thyme, marjoram and garlic. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add cream cheese cut into chunks. Puree mixture in blender or food processor until smooth. Stir in cream. To serve, swirl a teaspoon of sour cream on the top of each bowl.
