Many of us have heard various teachings about the law of attraction, welcoming abundance into our lives and so on and nearly every one of these teachings shares the foundation of “positive thinking.” The premise is to only think positive and don’t think negative. Easy right?
Not always; but it can be. To understand how to think dominantly positive and to minimize negative thinking we have to first understand where our thoughts come from and how they are formed. We have to get to the root of the issue and find out why we think the way we think.
The first thing we look at is our beliefs; what they are and where they come from. A belief is defined as “an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists;” the key word being acceptance. Our own acceptance and perception of a situation is what makes it our belief. Nowhere in this definition are we lead to think that our beliefs must be based on fact but rather they’re based on our accepted perception of an event or statement.
It’s no secret that I love food, all types of food, but my favorites would have to be sushi and Thai food. The only problem here is both typically contain a lot of rice and unless I’m enjoying a cheat meal or an off-season post-workout meal than this is just not possible – unless I get creative. One of the easiest ways to enjoy one of these favorites without the added carbs is by making it yourself with “cauliflower rice.” Cauliflower is a very versatile vegetable and can be used for many things but cauliflower rice is definitely one of my favorites. Here’s how to make it:
- 1 head of cauliflower
- Garlic (optional)
- Himalayan Salt (optional)
- Grate cauliflower in a large bowl
- Add spices to taste
- Microwave or steam for 8 minutes
- Saute for a “fried rice” texture (optional)
That’s it! Use your cauliflower rice for any dishes you like and enjoy one of your favorites without the added calories

As health risks associated with poor nutrition become more and more apparent, and the need for proper education on the subject continues to grow, it’s fortunate we live in a time where a vast amount of information is available at our fingertips.
This need has sent people in search for both new and cutting edge information that fits best into their lifestyle. Nutritional theories such as the Paleolithic, gluten-free and low-carb diets have gained popularity. However, these diets can lead to some complications.
One of my favorite breakfast meals is bacon and eggs and without excess carbs this meal can be enjoyed guilt free. The bacon and eggs are from a local butcher called the Highland Drive Storehouse and the veggies and Greek Yogurt are organic! Who says eating clean can’t be delicious?
