Berry Summer Smoothie, recipe, breakfast, smoothie, strawberry, mulberry, hemp seed, smoothie, betty bake,

I have been loving having berries around now that the warmer weather seems to be here, Hello Spring and then Summer!

and could be vegan if you sub the honey for maple syrup.



+/- 2 cups of berries (I used strawberries and mulberries)
1 medium banana
1 cup organic coconut milk
2 -3 Tablespoons hemp seeds
1 teaspoon honey. 

1/4 cup filtered water (if to thick - OPTIONAL)

Blend and adjust sweetness and thickness to taste.

Table Magazine and Grazia Magazine

Hello you

Its been a busy, fun and exciting time around here. Myself and this blog have been talked about in two publications and an email newsletter. I am more than thrilled - as publicity is always a blessing!
This blog post is my way of keeping track of any publicity for myself and to share with you what has been happening.

TABLE MAG: So first off here I am personally in the Table Magazine for my instagram account. I was blown away to be featured with international women of amazing standards when it comes to health and well-being. I am so chuffed to be 1 of the 5 (deliciously Ella and Sarah Wilson - are 2 to of the women I am alongside - WOW)

Im THAT mom - you know the kind that other moms roll their eyes at.

Can my kid have a play date at your house? umm maybe... but I'll send her food. Why you may ask? because my kid's gluten-free, dairy-free and eats organic food.  - Do you have organic carrots and organic fruit at your house? Sadly most don't.

Moms look at me as if Im crazy - I try to tell them as politely as possible that I would like to send my childs food - they almost always look at me like I have a big fat crazy thing coming out my head! yes

One SMALL word to create change

and, motivation, mindset, change, coach, 2016, bernice griffiths, create change,

I wrote this blog post for when you're feeling motivated BUT you ALSO want change...  Its the DIY of how to help yourself get from feeling to doing.

Ever felt really chuffed with yourself for feeling all motivated? I have! We feel like change is around the corner, we can feel it with every part of our being... then after a day or two OR a week or two it fades. Which kind of sucks.... Have you ever wandered what to do with that motivation AND how to help yourself make it work for you?

It all starts with a change in mindset - you see feeling motivated is not an action.

I know as a human being we (myself included) like to stop at the feeling... example: feeling motivated to go for a walk is very different to ACTUALLY GOING and doing the walk. But I really like that I felt motivated to want to do it (10 points for me - wink)

new year, new skies, grow, 2016, intentional, pick just one thing

It occurred to me that there are only 52 weeks in the the year and therefore only 52 Mondays, 52 Tuesdays, 52 Wednesdays etc (you get my point). So that would mean that I could harness this power of pattern that the working world (calendar) has put before me to pick one day of the week and decide to work on a skill, or desire I want to make happen.

It seems silly that I have only just realized the power of this. I mean I have always had the same 52 weeks every year right? but this year it dawned on me - lets say I pick every Monday to write for 30 minutes (I mean just 30 minutes, once a week) sounds doable. That means I would get in 50 sessions of writing (I took out 2 weeks because you know - life happens).

So back to the 50 sessions.
Lets do the math: 50 session x 30 minutes = 25 hours. 

25 hours of doing something consistently is nothing to sneeze at.
