One month into the New Year. Many of you reading this have been focusing on goals or mindset shifts that you determined at the onset of the New Year. Let’s examine a “goal.”
Goals are not really NOW. Goals do not actually exist, they are simply an IDEA. So what about NOW? What about TODAY? If we are so fixated on these future accomplishments, then every moment prior to reaching those accomplishments can feel disappointing or worse; a failure. ☹
It’s a PLAN that has the power. A plan is the action you take RIGHT NOW which actually has substance. So my friends, i n order to reach a GOAL you must have an action PLAN.
That’s why Balanced Habits™ offers the 28-day KICK START program right at the start of the New Year; to provide a plan for people to begin their journey to reach what might be a weight loss or healthy eating goal. Most humans simply need to follow a structured path with guidance and benefit best when it’s provided by a Coach to hold them accountable to the process. There is nothing wrong with seeking support to develop a plan to get you to your goals. In fact, your chances of success increase dramatically if you do!
Sadly, the world is still dealing with a deadly virus that have caused us as a nation to re-evaluate how we live our lives. Thankfully we have stopped taking our health for granted and are being more proactive to ensure our immunity is stronger, preventing us from getting sick, or support us to recover if we do. Many of us have placed our health higher on the list of priorities, started practicing better self-care, been more physically active, and engaged in more positive personal time activities that nurture the soul. These are all excellent total wellness practices that ideally encourage better overall health.

Yields: 9 x 9” square cake
3 cups Apple (usually 2 large), peeled, grated
8 Egg Whites, at room temperature
Or 1 cup *Aquafaba
2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Cardamom
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups White Whole Wheat
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped
Directions Pre heat oven to 350° F. Generously spray a 9 x 9” cake pan with avocado oil then dust with flour; set aside.
Step 1 Place egg whites (or aquafaba) i n a cold bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
Step 2 Meanwhile, in another large bowl, add grated apple and remaining 8 ingredients (thru walnuts). Combine well.
Step 3 Use a spatula to fold in egg whites (or aquafaba) until fairly well combined. Transfer to prepared baking pan and place into preheated oven and bake for about 30 min., or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for at least 15 min. before slicing.
→ Separate when cold, let whites come to room temperature
→ Make this Vegan using *Aquafaba
(the liquid from a can of Garbanzo Beans… will need two 15 oz. cans for the liquid)
→ 3 cups Apple (usu. 2 large), peeled, grated
→ We prefer Honeycrisp Apples
→ A food processor with the grating attachment makes this a snap
→ We do not portion our desserts; please practice portion control
