Intuition Month Recipes by Danielle Walker
Since so many people participating in Intuition Month have been struggling with eating healthy whole food, I reached out to Danielle Walker since she just came out with a brand new cookbook called “Healthy In A Hurry”.
I knew her recipes would be delicious as well as FREE from gluten, dairy, and grains.
Danielle was generous enough to share her recipes with us so I selected two that I selfishly enjoy…
Salsa Chicken Tacos and Teriyaki Salmon.
My entire family loves when we do taco night because we love the flavors as well as the fun part of designing our own taco bowls or wraps. (I’m really into the Siete brand wraps).
Salmon packets are the PERFECT all-in-one meal for the family. My kids love fish and broccoli and that sauce is everything you want in a sweet teriyaki sauce, so this is a quick favorite.

This crazy–easy chicken taco recipe has been one of my family’s weekly go–to dinners for years and years. It’s a meal I know none of my kids will balk at, and it’s my default when I’ve forgotten to plan and have only frozen chicken ready to go. I can throw it into the electric pressure cooker and have it on the table twenty minutes later. This is also one of those meals that I always double prep. A single portion goes into the slow cooker or pressure cooker for dinner, and the second portion goes straight to the freezer so it’s ready for another meal.
SERVES 6 TO 8
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
2 pounds fresh or frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
1 pound fresh or frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cups mild roasted tomatillo salsa, plus more for serving
1⁄4 cup Taco Seasoning (page 35)
1 cup chicken Bone Broth (page 42)
Butter lettuce cups or grain-free tortillas, for serving
Avocado slices, diced tomatoes, diced red onion,
Dairy-Free Sour Cream (page 36), and/or cilantro leaves, for serving
Place the chicken thighs and breasts, salsa, and taco seasoning in a resealable bag or glass container. Seal tightly and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months.
To Use an Electric Pressure Cooker: To cook from frozen, partially defrost the container in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes. Place the partially frozen ingredients in the pressure cooker with the broth, select the manual button and cook at high pressure for 20 minutes. To cook from thawed, omit the broth and cook for 12 minutes. Allowing the pressure to release naturally while you prepare the rest of dinner will work well here, but you can also release it manually immediately. Remove the chicken from the pot and use two forks to shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the pot and serve with the lettuce leaves, salsa, and toppings of your choice.
To Use a Slow Cooker: Defrost completely, then place the ingredients in the slow cooker. Omit the broth. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours. Remove the chicken from the pot and use two forks to shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the pot and serve with the lettuce leaves, salsa, and toppings of your choice.
Tidbits: My all-time favorite trick for shredding chicken quickly is to use a handheld electric mixer on low speed. It shreds the chicken perfectly in no time at all! Just cover your hand and the mixer loosely with a towel to avoid splatters.
MAKES ABOUT 2 CUPS – W30, EF, NF, V, SCD
1⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons chili powder
1⁄3 cup fine sea salt
1⁄3 cup ground cumin
1⁄4 cup dried oregano
21⁄2 tablespoons onion powder
21⁄2 tablespoons ground coriander
21⁄2 tablespoons sweet paprika
1 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper (see Note)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a bowl, stir together all of the ingredients, mixing well. Store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 6 months.
Note: Use up to 3 teaspoons cayenne if you want this to be spicy.
Buy It: Daniellewalker.com/spices
Use It: Chicken Tortilla Soup (page 94), Salsa Chicken Tacos (page 98), and “Skillet” Queso Dip (page 226)
MAKES 8 TO 10 CUPS – W30, EF, NF, SCD
Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 80 minutes
4 pounds roasted or raw chicken, beef,or turkey bones, or a mixture (see Tidbits)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, if roasting the bones
4 carrots, halved crosswise
2 celery stalks (with leaves), halved crosswise
1 large yellow onion, quartered
1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
8 to 10 cups filtered water
If the bones are cooked, put them into an electric pressure cooker or a slow cooker. If the bones are raw, preheat the oven to 400°F. Spread the bones on a large sheet pan, drizzle with the oil, and roast for 20 minutes, until browned. Transfer the bones and any juices to the pressure cooker or slow cooker.
Add the carrots, celery, onion, parsley, garlic, and vinegar to the pot, then add just enough filtered water to barely cover the bones and vegetables. If using a pressure cooker, secure the lid, select the manual setting, and cook on high pressure for 80 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally, which will take about 1 hour. If using a slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 24 hours.
Uncover the pot and skim off the fat from the surface of the broth. Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve, discarding the bones and other solids, and let cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week; or freeze in silicone muffin molds, then unmold and store in a resealable bag in the freezer for up to 6 months. To reheat from frozen, place in a saucepan over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes, until heated through.
Tidbits: There are so many good broth brands on the market that contain clean ingredients and have the desired gelatinous quality that comes from slow simmering, but making broth at home is less costly and you can tailor it to your dietary needs. The key to getting a good gel to your broth is to not fill the pot with too much water; add just enough to cover the bones. I use filtered water to avoid the chemicals and metals often present in tap water.
I prefer the flavor of the broth when it is made with roasted bones, but you can skip that step and use raw bones. For beef stock, use a mix of bones with a little meat on them, such as oxtail, short ribs, and/or knucklebones. For poultry, use a mix of backs, legs, and feet. Also see Pressure Cooker Chicken (page 41). If you’re sensitive to garlic and/or onion, leave them out. I make my broth unsalted and then salt to taste with each dish I use it in or add a pinch of salt when drinking it from a mug.
Buy It: Butcher’s by Roli Roti, Bonafide Provisions, and Bare Bones; or look for a low-or no-sodium broth
Use It: Soups, stews, sauces, and any recipe that calls
for chicken broth or chicken stock!
SERVES 4 TO 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Poaching salmon in parchment paper packets is a wonderful way to cook the fish and vegetables at the same time without drying out or overcooking either one. Other firm fish, such as ahi (yellowfin tuna), would work here, too. These teriyaki-flavored fish packets are stuffed full of vegetables that soak up the sweet and salty sesame sauce. My kids love to fill their own packets with their favorite vegetables.
3 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup snow peas, trimmed
1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
8 shiitake mushrooms, sliced and stems trimmed
3 tablespoons avocado oil
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
¾ teaspoon fine sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup Stir-Fry Sauce (see below)
2 tablespoons honey
¾ teaspoon ground ginger
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
6 (6-ounce) pieces skinless salmon fillet
Sliced green onions, white and tender green parts, and black sesame seeds, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut six large pieces parchment paper (each about 18 by 13 inches).
In a bowl, toss together the carrots, broccoli, snow peas, bell pepper, mushrooms, avocado oil, sesame oil, salt, and pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk together the stir-fry sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic powder to make a teriyaki sauce.
Fold each piece of parchment paper in half crosswise to create a crease, then unfold to lie flat. Divide the vegetables evenly among the parchment pieces, piling them high on one half of each piece, positioning them just beyond the crease line and leaving a 2-inch border around the edges. Lay a piece of salmon on top of each vegetable portion and then drizzle the teriyaki sauce on the salmon, dividing it evenly among the packets.
Fold the uncovered half of each parchment packet over the salmon, then, beginning at one end of the open edges, fold over the edges, making small, tight pleats as you go. Continue to fold and pleat until you reach the opposite open end and the packet is a half-moon shape. Check your folds to make sure the packet is well sealed so no steam will escape. Place the sealed packets in a single layer on a large sheet pan. If necessary, divide the packets between two pans.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the fish feels semifirm to the touch through the paper and the paper is browned.
Open the packets, sprinkle the salmon with the green onions and sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
Tidbits: While there’s a handful of great recipes in this book that use up the Stir-Fry Sauce, it’s also become my favorite condiment for an easy lunch of a leftover protein with cauliflower rice! Salmon and roast chicken are my favorite.
Make It Ahead: Fill and seal the packets and place them on a sheet pan in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Remove the pan from the fridge and let the packets sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.
MAKES 2 ½ CUPS
Prep Time: 5 minutes
2 cups coconut aminos
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar, or 1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1½ teaspoons fine sea salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
In a large jar, combine the coconut aminos, fish sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cap tightly and shake vigorously to mix well. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Buy It: Big Tree Farms Teriyaki or Primal Kitchen No Soy Teriyaki; both brands are sweeter and have more of a teriyaki sauce flavor than a stir-fry sauce flavor, but they will work with all of the recipes.

Let me tell you the story behind this rose quartz.
Back when I owned my first wellness center, my client Joanne and I would talk before or after her treatments. I knew she was a psychic/medium and that she was very active in the community and at her Unitarian church. I also knew she was Jewish.
One day I told her I was too and eventually she gave me this crystal. A gorgeous rose quartz with the Star of David engraved in gold. For the life of me, I can’t remember why she gave it to me. But for the last 16 years, it’s been stored deep inside my jewelry box, hidden.
Hiding my Jewish heritage always came naturally for me. My closest friends never knew because I specifically didn’t tell them. Why? I never logically thought about it, but rather I hid being a Jew INSTINCTIVELY.
Recently, I’ve been more interested in learning about my lineage. Turns out there’s a lot to be very proud of, including the fact I’m 85% Jewish. Technically, that makes me a super Jew! Some brag-worthy history includes early settlers to Tucson, AZ arriving in covered wagon, my GREAT grandmother graduated University of AZ in 1901! ? They ran a men’s clothing store through the Great Depression and never lost it! My Jewish family is on both sides and is from Lithuania, Germany, Poland, and France. Of course; even revealing this truth I realize what a fucking privilege to be able to hide. Even if historically my family has been persecuted, how lucky am I to just not tell people if I choose.
Being targeted, hated, bullied, murdered, and abused because of the color of your skin is NOT something many people can hide.
I’ve come to a place in my life where the work I’m here to share with the world prohibits me from hiding. If you’ve been hiding your gifts and magic out of fear and please know you’ve found me… I am committed to keeping a SAFE space to share what might be considered “weird” or “different” and in my ever-growing community, we CELEBRATE those differences.
Black, white, brown, yellow, gay, straight, bi, trans, skinny, fat, tall, short…everyone BELONGS here. Just. As. You. Are. No more hiding, trying to fit in, or playing small.
Love is love is love. Let’s spread it together.

I’m pissed about something today and you might be too! Let me explain…
Recently, I was thinking about business coaches and their online courses. What’s crazy is something like 94% of students don’t complete their online courses – I wondered WHY???
My guides showed me a clock with all of its parts and that’s when it hit me!
What MOST online business coaches and course creators are giving you is a box full of clock parts (all the parts of a successful business) and an instruction booklet (their course) and expecting that you’ll be able to assemble a clock (just like theirs), based on their simple instructions.
At some point, very early on, a part of your soul goes, WTF?
Maybe you internalize it thinking something is wrong with YOU instead of the course.
THE PROBLEM, and this really fires me up, is that maybe THEY built a clock and made 6-figures (or whatever they’re telling you), and now you’re supposed to build a clock (like theirs) super fast and make loads of money like them!
GAH! No. NOOO!! STOP!!
Have you ever stopped to consider that’s THEIR life path, but what if YOUR life path ISN’T building a clock at all?
What if you’re here, in this lifetime, to build a damn rocket ship, or a telescope, or a flying electric car…you get me?
Someone else’s parts and instructions fail you every time because that’s THEIR life path…and you, my friend, are not on the same path.
YOU are not broken, their plan just isn’t YOURS…
Likely, that’s also why you’re always feeling so freaking OVERWHELMED by it!
And overwhelm kills forward action EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
I honestly hope my point isn’t getting lost in metaphors so here it is more clearly:
You’ve been raised to follow instructions and raise your hand, seek help outside, and NOT to trust the wisdom from within…
But as a Business Coach for 4 years, I can tell you, to get transformative LASTING results – that model is going to fail you. Maybe not immediately, but when you are ready for that big leap in your business, it can’t come from WITHOUT.
You need to seek help from INSIDE!
It’s time to toss out those business models that promise you they have the answers FOR you, in favor of a ONE-SIZE-FITS-YOU program so that you can remember how to look inward for answers and guidance AND get real HUMAN support when you’re feeling a little lost on your path.
That’s exactly what I teach and preach because I, like you, followed someone else’s strategies and ideas until I couldn’t take the “failure” any longer…I threw out their model in favor of following MY inner guidance and so far so f’ing good!
I’ve learned a thing or two from both being a coach and a student and I want to give you some helpful hints to consider before you invest in that next program or coach.
Questions to Ask before you leap:
- Are they giving you their formula or are they teaching tools to connect to your own authentic formula?
- Is there a transformation involved in their program?
- If you know people who have taken it, ask how they were before they took it and what happened after? (Make sure you’re not solely paying for networking because that might not be what you’re after).
- Are there actionable steps that you can apply to your business NOW?
- Is it a balance of “inner work” and business principles? (You want both!)
- Does it fit your industry? Let’s face it. If you’re “woo” your “woo”. If you invest in a coach or program that doesn’t have inner growth included, your soul is going to feel it.
The key to investing in an effective Business Coach or eCourse is to make sure that you can apply it as you learn and build a strong foundation as you go – from the inside.
Most people don’t talk about this, but you need to build the foundation both inside with your beliefs about safety and success and THEN scale your business.
It explains why 70% of lottery winners go bankrupt! They didn’t learn how to earn the money and manage it as they grew so when things start to go wrong they can’t figure out how to fix it. They don’t have that skill set to fall back on.
If you don’t know how to go within and follow your inner guidance –well, there’s no shortage of examples of people hitting it big and then losing everything.
If you don’t have a solid foundation, it will crumble when your post goes viral or you finally have email subscribers signing up at 50 per day but no one buys anything or signs up for your services.
You never want to feel disillusioned by your hard work. Like you bought into a system that wasn’t designed for you and forgot to BE true to yourself.
“You can fail at something you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance doing what you love.” Jim Carrey

If you are on the fence I have something for you too…LISTEN TODAY and enjoy my Opening to Unlimited Abundance Meditation so you can start attracting the abundance you desire with ease.
The purpose of this blog is to simply point out how when you’re in ALIGNMENT with your life’s purpose and passions, the judgment of others doesn’t even matter.
It’s MY purpose is to shine my light so that others can shine theirs too. Simply put: I help you so you can help others!
In order to help others, I have to be massively VISIBLE.
Being massively visible means I attract some occasional unwanted attention!
TRIGGER WARNING: I invite YOU to consider your own fears of visibility, being judged for who you are, fears of being an imposter, or being the “weirdo” in the room…
A PERSONAL TRUE STORY: Just last week, a troll on the internet went out of their way to rip me a new one. Here’s what happened and how I handled it…and how YOU can face your fears of judgment too!
Here’s some of what they said:
“You’re not psychic”
“You’re full of shit”
“You give horrible advice”
“What you is unethical”
“All you care about are followers”
“You should quit your job to be at home with your children”
“Your work is bullshit”
“You only care about putting yourself first”
So, maybe you’re wondering why on earth would someone say such things?…
Truth be told…If this conversation happened when I was newly visible online and still a bit insecure in my work, these would have BROKEN ME into a puddle, I would have strongly considered quitting, I would have definitely lost sleep over it…
HOWEVER, when I heard those words last week I felt…N O T H I N G.
In the conversation, I didn’t get defensive.
I didn’t react.
I didn’t get angry.
I didn’t throw insults back…
I listened and occasionally said “that’s really interesting feedback, tell me more about that” or “well this certainly says a lot about you”…
(Feel free to borrow those if you need to!)
But here’s WHY I felt nothing…
It’s because NONE of those words are true AND I’ve healed those old wounds of needing to be liked by everyone!
The TRUTH is that the work I do is helping thousands of people and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t see that karma return in POSITIVE ways.
It’s kind of like someone making fun of me for being too tall…I’m 5’2″ so that’s just silly nonsense…same reaction with this.
So here’s the part I didn’t tell you…
That “troll on the internet” who said all of those things was actually a close family member. We were simply chatting about plans for Thanksgiving when he unloaded…
What I said to him was that while I appreciate his honest feedback that he clearly had been holding back for years.
I’m in a place in my life where I have zero tolerance for people in my life who don’t love, honor and appreciate me for ME.
I realize to some people reading this you may have a judgment about me or him, but consider this…
The reason why HE said all of those things means nothing about me and EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM.
Did he say it to hurt me? No.
But as we know, hurt people hurt people…he’s clearly hurting in some way, and that’s HIS work to do.
I forgive him and release him from my life right now. Maybe one day that will change but for now, I’m not available.
And for all you scrollers…the moral of my story is…
When you align yourself to your true calling and life purpose, and stay TRUE to your divine alignment, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS!!
And always remember what Michelle Obama said: “When they go low, we go high.”
If you’re getting the side-eye from any friends, family, or co-workers please trust, they are NOT your people.
“True belonging doesn’t require that we change who we are, it requires that we BE who we are.” ~Brene Brown

I know how important MONEY is in people’s life.
I’d love to help you unlock your intuition and use it as a tool to EXPLODE your business and magnetize your ideal soulmate clients, but let’s take this one step at a time…
Q: How does using intuition grow my business?
A: Just for a moment consider the fact that some of the world’s most successful business owners (Oprah, Elon Musk, Arianna Huffington, and Ray Dalio to name a few) all attribute their success to using meditation and trusting their INTUITION!
ASK YOURSELF: What would be possible if I could 100% trust my inner compass?
Here’s their secret…
Even as little as ONE MINUTE of deep breathing can take a bad day and make it good…Why?
Because it moves your ATTENTION. And we all know we ARE where our attention IS.
Meaning, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by your day, your business (or lack thereof) and you keep spiraling, your day and your energy spirals too.
AND…The more frequently you connect, the easier it becomes to receive messages, PLUS your energy vibration becomes YUMMY!! #yourvibeattractsyourtribe
Q: “My problem is I don’t have enough TIME to meditate”
My best advice that I share with students from Mastery & Ascension is start with ONE MINUTE a day and keep track.
In fact, inside Mastery & Ascension, every member gets a tracker to make tracking easy but if you aren’t a member yet, you can use a notebook or a calendar. They even have some apps to help you track habits as well.
Commit to creating the space to complete a one-minute meditation daily and in time increase your time, keep track of not only your meditations but your successes AND CELEBRATE!
Are you attracting your soul mate clients?
MYTH: “IF I TELL PEOPLE WHO I REALLY AM, THEY’LL JUDGE ME!”
By now, I hope you’re starting to see that not only was I unsure of my own abilities, I was darn right AFRAID to share them publicly because I thought my clients would leave me, friends would judge me, and the “haters” would virtually stone me!
Luckily for me, NONE of that happened.
But, it was so deeply ingrained that I became paralyzed in my work until I had my “spiritual coming out” as an intuitive…
And after I came OUT, that’s actually when my business took off because I knew how to attract my soulmate clients! The reality is people will judge regardless, why not be doing something you LOVE!
If you’re just coming out of your “woo closet” take a good look around you…are you surrounded by women who SEE you and love that woo side of you?
Take it from me, it can be really challenging to spiritually “out” yourself in your life and business, but once you do, you begin to attract more people who GET YOU.
The good news, is you’re already way further ahead than I was by being part of my community!
Imagine what life would be like continuing to HIDE your true self…month after month. Having to hide around people who are supposed to be your friends, but really they know nothing about you. They could be holding you back from truly expressing your authentic self and helping others…
In fewer words, they don’t get you because you’re afraid to show them because of how they’ll judge you.
Just thinking about it makes my heart so sad.
Imagine how that fear impacts your business.
If you’re still hiding your true authentic self, how could you possibly grow your business?
