Out of my Rut

I’m in a rut. While enjoying some different foods from others helping me out this week, it has made me think of how I get stuck in ruts of eating the same things over and over.

Realizing this rut and then reading cooking magazines and watching foods shows all week, I’ve decided to keep trying some new foods & recipes-want to join me?  Each month I’ll highlight a new recipe (or two) I’ve tried that is healthy and appeals to more than just me-ideally the family. For me it doesn’t work unless there’s some consensus in the family.

We are on a wellness journey together, so let’s keep it healthy and with minimal ingredients!  I love reading cookbooks with intricate recipes, but in reality those occur once or twice a year for me-so simple and healthy is more realistic for everyday.

You have the Wellness Granola and the Wellness Journey Snack Mix recipes, so how about we start with a healthy, simple and interesting entrée?

Submit your recipes or chime in with ideas and next month I’ll highlight one or more that fit into our wellness vibe.  Comment here at the end of the post, email me at jill@memoryminders.net  or join the discussion on Facebook or Twitter.  What fun-each month we’ll get a new recipe (or more depending on how ambitious we all are) to try and keep us out of our ruts!

While being mindful this week I: Realize …

Two for One

I love a great deal-like getting two for one.  You may know I had some knee surgery this week.  I had been preparing for it for a while and was actually quite busy right up until the night before.  That night it hit me how life would change in the next days, weeks and months, …

Strength Through Grace

I’ve always considered myself to be strong.  I take pride in the fact that I am stronger than I look.  When I was working as a nurse in the hospital, I’d help big strong men who had heart surgery.  They didn’t think I could help them stand or sit up.  They’d say, “you’re too small …

Fill My Glass

Sometimes my glass is half empty. I don’t like it, but I have a tendency to see the negative of life sometimes instead of the positive.  I criticize and tear down instead of encourage and build up. I recognize this about myself and am working to change.  I surround myself with positive people and have …
