How To Retrain Your Brain

Hey hey , Happy December 4th. So glad you found me and today's blog post is about How To Retrain Your Brain.  It's so important to be able to reset your mindset. Without it , you practically are running around like a dog chasing it's tail. It's impossible to create any kind of success without having the right mindset to go with it. So this is why it's so important to me to share these littel tricks with you.

How To Retrain Your Brain - 3 Simple Tricks

It goes without saying that without having the proper mindset you will not see the results you want in your life and in your business. This is why you must learn how to retrain your brain. Negativity creeps into our lives and sets us back, whether it be fear, naysayers trampling on our dreams, life interuppting or just our own noise that pushes us away from being where we should be, all because the mindset , the brain isn't connecting all the right dots.

I too, have been there and we all go through this banter with ourselves at some point because we just don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. But ,ya know what , there is that LIGHT.

You are your own LIGHT. You just have to flick on that switch and keep it on at all times. Ignore that nonsense, it's absolutely useless.

SO let me share with you my Top 3 Simple Tricks To Retrain The Brain.

#1 : Journaling

This is my number 1 Tool to Retrain The Brain.

Writing your thoughts has so much POWER, you have to touch the inner core of you in order to get ahead in your life. You need to find where you begin and where you end. Write down all the things you want, the things your need, the things you aspire to be, your goals, your desires ,where you see yourself in 3, 5, 10 years and  your fears ( but don't dwell on this one too long. )

Writing down your fears should be something you vent out , look at it , rip it out and let it go.

The purpose of your journal is to keep your mindset in the positive, so don't get hung up on worrying , on negative thoughts. You want to create a positive happy place for your thoughts and with your journal , gratitude comes into play.

Each night before you go to bed, write 5 things down that you were grateful for in that day.

Start implementing this in your life and watch how life starts to take on a different role, this is the magic of retraining your brain.

How To Cook Colombian Food : Inspire Your Apetite Series 1

Hey Hey , It's E, so glad you could join me on today's blog post ! You are here because you have been dying to learn how to cook Colombian food, I know trust me , your mouth is probably watering just thinking about it. Latin food is one of the most highly saught after culinary tastes. The beauty of Latin food is that there are so many different countries that you can taste from , but being that I am of Colombian heritage , it's all I know , how to cook my mama's recipes.

CLICK HERE to WATCH THIS Quick Video From Mikenzie and Me :D


How To Cook Colombian Food : Papas Chorreadas ( Colombian Potatoes Drenched in Cheese Sauce )

By now you know that I am going to teach you how to cook Colombian food. You are in for a treat , because as you know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we mama's are creating our menus, always trying to keep it traditional but yet sometimes trying to keep it new and exciting, introducing new recipes ( I know I do ) try to keep it fun and fabulous each year with a new recipe .

This one is going to truly make you salavate while you are prepping and cooking. 

One of the things I remembered most when my mother cooked is how much joy and LOVE she put into each meal. Watching her CREATE in the kitchen was sheer happiness to me, I watched and I learned ( and truth be told I hated being in the kitchen to actually do the " work " , I was happy just watching and taking in the aromas.

Growing up in a Colombian household was always just vibrant and musical , even while cooking my mother needed her music to be on, it just felt homier , I understand this concept now more so than ever. Cooking my childhood favorite recipes for my husband and children, watching them devour it and asking for thirds is such a compliment , coming from a girl that wanted nothing to do with the kitchen, LOL !!!!

But first , I turn on my Pandora , Tune into My Gypsy Kings Radio and away we go ...

Step into my CUCINA ( Kitchen in Italian - It's COCINA in Spanish ) But I always liked the way it sounded in Italian ... ah ha ha !

Ingredients :

  • Red Potatoes , although Idaho Potatoes will work too ( I have a family of 6 , so I usually make 10 -12 potatoes ) use your discretion on your family size
  • Plum Tomatoes ( 10 -12 ) trust me you want seconds
  • 1 Large Sweet Onion ( this recipe call for scallions which I love, but because they are not in season , I use a sweet onion )
  • 2 Pints of Heavy Cream ( not whipping cream )
  • Salt & Pepper To Taste
  • Garlic Salt To Taste
  • 1/2 lb of Muenster Cheese ( sliced thin )
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil to Coat Pan


Now by no means does this recipe fit into anyone's diet , it's a heavy traditional Colombian side dish that is typically served with what we call an asado ( BBQ ) Steak , Potatoes and Rice , but because it is such a rich dish , it makes for a great Fall Food ( comfort food ) This was and still is my favorite dish , oooofa I just love it soo much, I cannot wait for you all to try it, it's a HUGE hit with my husband and  kids.

FUN FACT : Papas Chorreadas ( Colombian Potatoes Drenched in Cheese Sauce ) - The verb chorrear means to flow or pour - the sauce in this dish is meant to be " drenched " over the potatoes.


  1. Wash and Scrub your potatoes, place in a large pot of boiling salted water. Pierce them with a fork to make sure they are tender, when done , drain and place them to the side.
  2. Finely chop tomatoes and onion , place in a bowl together , you want the flavors to mold into each other.
  3. Add 2 -3 tablespoons of Olive Oil to Skillet , let it get hot and then add your Tomato and Onion ( This is what we call El Gizo ) The sauce .
  4. Add Salt , Pepper and Garlic Powder To Taste , ( I would say if you asked me to measure it , a teaspoon of each )
  5. Saute " El Gizo " till it cooked till tomatoes and onions become fragrant  ( about 5 -10 minutes )
  6. Stir in the heavy cream , ( 1 Pint ) if you feel that it needs more , add half of the other pint. Mix " El Gizo " with the heavy cream till it begins to bubble, quickly add the muenster cheese and fold into the mixture , when cheese is mostly melted , remove from heat and cover the pan.
  7. Lastly, when you are ready to serve, slice your potatoes in slices and pour your cheese sauce over them.

It truly is one of the easiest typical Colombian dishes that I know of , and trust me it makes you loook like you slaved over the kitchen for hours. It's an absolute hit !

I remember back in the days when my mother would whip this up when we had company over, BBQ's , Birthdays, Thanksgiving Dinners, everyone would be begging her for the recipe.

It's just one of those down home feel good yummness I would love to share with the world. It's too good to keep it all to yourself.


How To Cook Colombian Food : Blogging and Your Food Blog

I told you I was going to teach you how to cook Colombian food , didn't I ? Cooking is something that is enjoyable, is something that you can share with others, is something that you can turn into a food blog and is something that you can turn into making money from.

How cool is that ? Starting a food blog has so many perks , I will list a few :

  1.  You get to try new recipes , I mean truthfully you can't write about the same vanilla cupcake recipe twice, mix it up , change it up , take crazy cool pictures.
  2. It forces you to stay up on it, technically you should write a blog post everyday, this makes your content found by google more searchable and the more of you out there in Googleland the better. But if blogging everyday seems too tedious to you or overwhelming , try picking 2-3 days out of the week and designate those days for your blog posts. Make your readers excited to stop by your blog and see what you got cooking in your oven !
  3. Blogging , this makes you the BOSS, you are the CEO of YOU , you can do whatever you want to your blog , with your blog , whatever, this is your home on the internet. This is where you are going to house all your best recipes, how -to- tutorials, fun pictures , live events , if you have products that you sell - write about them in your blog and post your links , there is soooooooo much you can do with a blog. Your Blog is Your KEY to Success !

So you can start a food blog on " how to cook Colombian Food " or how to bake crazy amazing cupcakes, call it whatever you like , the point is that , creating a food blog is literally two clicks away !!!



Do you realize how many Big Wig Companies are BLOGGING, yes everyone and there mother is blogging , wanna know why ? Because they see the VALUE in it.

Look Betty Crocker has a  Blog ====>

Dunkin Donuts Has a Blog ======>

one of my Favorites Chefs has a BLOG :

Nigella Lawson ====>

Quick tidbit before I go :

People don't just BUY from you , they don't, they have to feel like the know , like and trust you. They need to know that #1 , you are REAL person and #2 ,  that you care. Building that trust factor is HUGE in any business. Establishing this with your audience is what is going to separate you from the rest. Some people like to blog and don't put too much time or effort into it.

Then there are people , like you that want to BLOG , the right way and be able to create a living from home just like myself using this AWESOME  blogging system, it's simply amazing how much this has transformed my life and my families and it can too for you.

Experience  : 21 Day Meditation :

Energy of Attraction


I like many of you have been following Oprah for as long as I can remember. Everything she does creates a magnetic force that you are naturally drawn to , like a moth to a flame.

I just stumbled upon this experience / experiment that Oprah and the infamous Deepak Chopra have created,  inside The Super Women Connection that I am affiliated with.

When I saw that these ladies are going to be chroniciling their journies through this 21 Day Meditation Challenge. So I said I want to do it too.

I Love anything that will push me outward and in return connect me more to my inner self !

It's Truly a magical experience to be able to connect with your inner thoughts , to connect with your inner intention that will in turn connect to your outer results !


“You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed.” - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Centering Thought

~ My Life Moves Forward Through Desire ~

Notes :

I honor the universal power of desire !

Change your intention , you change your path !

We Are All ENERGY !

" Human desire is the essential energy of attraction. Our hopes, dreams, wishes, and intentions are the forces that impel our growth and forward motion in life. We will learn that desire is not only basic to everyday life, it is essential to our spiritual evolution as well. It is through desire that we create more love, joy, and vitality. In our meditations together we will experience the source of desire – our true inner self – and begin to desire from that silent awareness. This is the key to manifesting the life you want. "


~ INSERT Video of Day 1 Experience ~





Overall Thoughts :

I was blown away, I adore Oprak to begin with and I have practically read all of Deepak's Books, followed him for the last 10 years , so it is of no surpise to me that this took my breath away, literally.

I love that Oprah opens it up and walks you through what you are going to experience within this meditation, opening your mind up to the possibilities of allowing yourself to connect with the power of you !

Deepak then enters and the shift begins to occur. His melodic voice takes you away to your inner self, softly but surely you arrive to your place of yes, to your inner thoughts and you feel yourself resting , the kind of rest that you can't just feel on your own, unless you are in a deep state of thought, hence why it's called Meditation !

It feels like a time travel in the now to your core thoughts, where you are, where you wnat to be and where you are going ! Meditation is a wonderful way to center yourself and get away from the outside noise, it's a way to become one with you.

I highly reccomend that you take a visit to their site and sign up and start your 21 Day Meditation Experience. It Truly will make you a believer in the POWER of Manifesting Your Desires with The POWER OF YOUR THOUGHTS !

Remember This ,

" Like Atrracts Like "

" Thoughts Become Things , Choose The Good One's "


Eecha Shakti Namah

( repeat this to yourself throughout the day when you feel distracted by thoughts, outside noise - repeat that mantra in your thoughts to return to your centering thought )

This is amazing , for me , with my brain going off like fireworks all day, to be able to return to a quiet place, space within my thoughts, this is wonderful !
