Cure For Jet Lag

Standard

Just got home from LA on the Red Eye from the most exciting Holistic Nutrition MBA Program.  

It was amazing to spend the last 5 days with 19 exceptional like minded woman and one brave man.

I realized when I walked into my kitchen after being away, that something was missing….

The energy actually felt stagnant…..this kitchen needed some LOVE!!!!

As you know, cooking is my Moving Meditation.  

It takes me out of my head and into my heart..pulling the” Creative Jen” into the “Spotlight”

My instinct was calling for “COOKIES”

COOKIES was the call to Cure My Jet Lag….

While in LA, I  ate at Real Food. Besides loving everything I ordered and ate, I closed my dinner with their very own…

Peanut Butter and Jam Cookies

These cookies are the BOMB…My kids walked in from mid terms today with stressed out body language…until they caught the aroma coming out of the kitchen

I accomplished my goal of moving ENERGY for sure!!!!  Big Smiles!!!!

I always like to get my readers to think….What pulls you into your Spotlight?

  1. THose look ridiculous and I can actually smell them from your description. Please and I mean PLEASE don’t make those beauties when I come over! xoxo

  2. Jen: These cookies look amazing. I’m going to try them with almond milk instead of cow milk. Melted dark chocolate would be amazing instead of jam too. Welcome home! xo, Amy

    • Yes, I used Unsweetened Almond milk as well..thats why I wrote milk of choice..I also made a few plain for Jack….and YES….thought of the Chocolate as well…Let me know how they come out….xo

  5. These look soooo tasty – will try. Moreover, thanks for cluing me into how we need to zero in on our kids’ body language. I also like the encouragement to think about my “spotlight.” I always learn something reading between the lines of this blog. Thanks!
