GREEN PROTEIN BOWL + GOOD-FOR-EVERYTHING DRESSING

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go. I’m standin’ here outside your… you get the jist. Today marks the two week countdown to a new chapter in my life and I couldn’t be more excited to make a move to the west coast to delve into the unknown and fully immerse myself in nature, wellness, and all things health and healing.

When I think of moving, I don’t usually associate it with words like “easy” or “fun.” Though, needless to say, each time I’ve moved to a new country, province, or apartment within the same city, I’ve gained valuable life lessons that have given me the tools to make this one of the most seamless of moves yet. Of course, there have been bumps and sharp turns along the way but there has also been wide open road. When we move, we often rid our lives of clutter. We shed a skin of material things. Possessions, so I’ve come to realize, do not define us or represent our soul, nor do they create profound, long-lasting happiness.

Simplicity in nourishment and contentment in ones own life make for a fulfilled and happy soul.

I recently read a compilation of others’ definition of happiness. Some were simplistic, others materialistic. It sparked me to create a definition of my own:

Happiness is not so much something we choose but something we create. Happiness is accepting the present moment, whether good or bad, and finding the beauty in it. Being at peace with it. Happiness is a soul filled with gratitude, like a claw-foot tub filled to the brim with bubbles, on the brink of gently flowing over. Happiness is not an instantaneous, fleeting feeling but a slow and steady calm. Happiness is me.

Happiness, in my eyes, is also this bowl of green goodness. It has just about everything you need. It’s protein-dense, chlorophyll-rich, and essential fatty acid-filled. A green bowl is quick to prepare and even easier to eat.
