This Valentine’s, Be with the Love of Your Life (plus FREE Video & Recipe)

If you’re like me, February 14th can be a reminder of how lonely we sometimes feel.  Watching the TV ads for diamond rings can leave me feeling ”alone”- even if in a relationship.

Instead I now make Valentine’s Day a “ME Day” by strengthening the relationship I have with myself and practicing more forgiveness and kindness.  And instead of putting the spotlight on what I don’t have, I appreciate what I do have.

So, silence the advertisements that say you must give or receive “diamond” rings and instead give yourself the true diamond which is feeling loved.

(Was interviewed on radio by Mitchell Rabin- ABetterWorld– get the full story.)

OMG! This feeling uplifts your mood, spreads to everyone around you, and magically fills the space with love.

L-o-v-e at first bite!

Say “I love you” with this fabulous, healthy but decadent recipe.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • graham crackers (optional)

1. Rinse strawberries.
2. Cut off the stem.  Hollow out a little of the center to put your cheesecake fluff.
3. Cut off enough of the strawberry tip so that your strawberry stands.
4. In a mixer, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until it’s nice and fluffy.  Then fill a pastry bag (or zip lock bag) full of the cream cheese filling and pipe it into each strawberry.

5. Chocolate: Add some chocolate chips to a micro-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stir, and then repeat until it’s smooth.  The amount of chocolate chips depends on how much chocolate you want on your strawberries. For example, to drizzle 20 strawberries, melt about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.  Then scoop your melted chocolate into the corner of a plastic bag.  Cut off a tiny corner to squeeze out a small line of chocolate to drizzle on top of your strawberries.

6. If you want graham crackers, just smash them in a bag and sprinkle on top!

Important: place in the fridge to chill thoroughly and then serve.

**Tip:  Don’t make these too far in advance or not more than 2-4 hours ahead of time.  Otherwise, the strawberries sweat and can get soggy.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
