3GT – Leadership crush, wellness blog and healing soup
Hi everyone, happy Easter! Hope you have had some lovely relaxing time with family and friends, and eaten lots of amazing hot x buns and chocolate eggs! It has been great just to chill out with Luca, hang out at home, and have time to read and write without the usual rush and hustle!
Here are my latest 3 Good Things. I hope you enjoy and find something to inspire you.
#1 Latest Leadership Crush
So first there was Daniel Pink, then Peter Bregman, and now my latest leadership crush is Robin Sharma. You might know him from his books, his most notable is The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. He has sold millions of books all over the world on leadership and success. I have been loving his audio programs over the past week, which I have been listening to on my walks. Whilst there is not a lot of new content (because as a wise sage once said, everything has already been said), I do like his approach, his fresh voice and his content, much of which funnily enough resonates with what I have been writing for Getting Real – that must be why I like him so much!! Check out his website here, and let me know what you think.
#2 Cool New Wellness Blog
You may have seen Sally Joseph in my favourite people pages – she has been my amazing nutritionist for well over a decade, and she is nutritionist to people like Miranda Kerr and Layne Beachly. She totally rocks! And lucky for all of you, she has recently started her new blog and lauched her new website. It is full of amazing resources, recipes and information on how to live your wellest life. I highly recommend it. Make sure you check out her choc banana smoothie – it is truly amazing, delicious and addictive!
#3 My Healing Soup
Ok so it wouldn’t be a blog post without a recipe! This week, feeling like I needed a little nurturing and nourishment, I made my beautiful organic vegetable soup. I am not a master chef by any stretch, but I have to say that this soup is pretty amazing. I make it every few weeks, or whenever I need a bit of extra love and care. It’s super easy, only takes about 20 minutes from start to end, and makes up a big pot that lasts me about 5 days – you can freeze it too if you like, makes a great easy dinner or lunch at the office. Give it a try!
Ingredients – organic where possible
One brown onion
2 cloves garlic
Half a cauliflower
Kettle full of boiling water
2 vegetable stock cubes
One medium sized sweet potatoe
Half a brocolli
One entire head of english spinach – lots of it! (or silverbeet or other leafy green)
My (Pretty Basic) Cooking instructions
Brown the onions and garlic in some olive oil
Add boiling water and stock cubes
Add sweet potato and bring to the boil, and then add the cauliflower
After a few minutes, add the brocolli and a when the brocolli is soft, turn the heat down
Add the spinach or greens, lots and lots of it, and then put the lid on and turn the heat off. The spinach will steam beautifully.
Then, just blend with a hand blender until almost mixed together, but leaving some chunks.
Spoon into bowls, add some grated parmesan and goats cheese, a touch of sea salt and black pepper, and enjoy!
