Hearty Roasted Mushroom Soup Recipe
Each week during #MushroomMakeover, Corinne gives us a new focus (this has been one of my favorite parts of this challenge!). This week our focus is three parts, and one of them is self talk.
This is timely, because I just had a really great conversation about this while on vacation. I am acutely aware of the effect of language, how our declarations are tied directly to outcomes and outlooks – good or bad.
I have said this before – I have a pretty high level of confidence. I have no idea how or why, but I certainly am grateful for it every day.
Now, the conversation I was having was with two dear friends, who also possess a healthy level of confidence. Except two of us were stopped in our tracks when the third said “I’m kind of good at it,” referring to a huge project she recently completed.
Huh? Kind of? We were baffled (this was an awesome success for her). She wasn’t even aware she said it. She immediately said what a disservice she was giving herself, when talking about something she is incredibly passionate about, something that is now her livelihood. The words kind of completely diminished what she has just created.
Corinne’s challenge this week fits right in to this topic I have been thinking about since that day with my friends – because I see it more than I’d like. Corinne says Our Thoughts Determine Our Reality – which is basically saying one of my favorite quotes – Whatever You Focus On Gets Bigger.
Reframe Rethink Rephrase
Part of our focus this week is to Reframe, Rethink, Rephrase. Even when you have things to work on, there are positive things to focus on while doing the work. And when we are talking about what we do for a living or what we are passionate about? Hopefully we are using positive words, or giving some thought to why the words are negative.
We enjoyed this mushroom soup recipe last week, and again last night for dinner. Not leftovers – this is so easy to make I whipped it up again yesterday, while in the kitchen doing other work!
I set the cashews to soak early in the morning, and by late afternoon I finished this quick recipe. The flavors are rich, hearty, umame. I wish I could give you a warm bowl right now.
I garnished this with vegan coconut bacon. Mmm.

Do you have aspects of self talk that you could improve? Even with saying I am confident, I am learning a lot about myself during this process. I do think I have healthy confidence, but may use that as a security blanket at times, perhaps to not do something… we all have work we can do!
