Baby Steps: Think about one unhealthy habit in your life - potion control, lack of exercise, smoking, sugar, eat more veggies, etc. Pick ONE to concentrate on. When you have that under control, move to another area. My goal is to drink more water and less DIET COKE!!
Tips of the Day:
1. Fitness: Instead of watching your kids play at the playground from the bench, get moving with a game of tag, try the monkey bars, or take a ball to kick around.
2. Fact: "You are wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14 Yes, YOU MAMA! Don't just recite this verse to your kids...it was written to us all - young and old!
3. Food: A great new recipe from BH&G:
Roasted Sweets and Greens
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
2 garlic cloves (I use garlic already minced in the jar!)
1/4 cup hazelnuts (I have substituted chopped walnuts and pinenuts)
2 cups arugula
1/4 cup cider vinegar (I used Pomegranite vingear)
PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes. Toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet.
ROAST in preheated oven 15 minutes. Toss. Roast 15 more minutes. Sprinkle with garlic and nuts. Roast 5 minutes. Remove from oven ad sprinkle with arugula and cider vinegar.
Until next time....have a fabulous and fit New Year!!!
