Gooooooood Morning Vietnam!!! (remember that Robin Williams movie?)
How’s your Friday going? Shaping up to be a nice day here. I am warming up my voice as I write this, I have a lot of auditions this am.
Had an “a ha” moment….As I have been getting healthier and eating better, I have been cooking more and I noticed the lack of counter space I have. Then I eyed up my microwave and thought “do I really need you?” You know how sometimes you ponder ideas and think, ahh, I better think about this for a bit. I didn’t even flinch. It was like-microwave, you are gone. NOW. BAM. So we put it down by the “community area” of my building, where people leave things they no loner want.
Felt good to get rid of it, and the extra counter space is amazing!! If we have leftovers, just throw em in the oven, or in a frying pan on the stove.
How are your eating habits this week? Have you been eating clean, whole foods? Wanna try a recipe that is full of iron and a great snack…..INTRODUCING KALE CHIPS. (got the recipe from Allrecipes.com)
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
- Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
My boyfriend is obsessed with them. They are sooo good. Light and Crispy.
Last thing I want to mention today is affirmations. Do you do affirmations? I try to do them, but I often forget, so I have decided that everyday I will leave an affirmation at the end of my post. (to remind us both:) I will use ones from Louise Hay and then when I run out of ones from her, maybe i’ll start making them up…we’ll see. She has like 2 years worth tho! ha.
So the best way to do this is just for 30 seconds or so, close your eyes and say the affirmation over in your head and really feel it and what it means to you. Let me know what you think! Here’s todays:
“I am aware.” Louise Hay
Have an wonderful Friday!
