Is it really possible to crave brussel sprouts? Last night Mitch opted into “meatless Monday,” dinner. I roasted halved brussel sprouts and cut up sweet potatoes (with olive oil, sea salt and fresh herbs). The natural color combination is so beautiful. Served with a garden salad it was just what I was craving. Mitch also had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I had some Gardein beefless tips which I made in the frying pan with sliced onions. They are a DELICIOUS Gardein option and I highly recommend them.
This morning’s news had a segment about the Paleo Diet. This is based on eating foods that our ancestors eat, hence it is also called the Caveman Diet. Based on eating mostly lean animal products, fish and fruits and vegetables and nuts, but no grains, no processed ANYTHING at all, it is shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. While obviously this is NOT for me, I can see where it could be for others. Reminds me that there are many paths that lead to the same destination. Eliminating ALL processed foods is bound to bring health benefits. That is a great idea for ALL of us.
Keeping all good thoughts for my friends and students who are currently struggling, either with physical or emotional challenges. My heart goes out to all of you and I wish you all a day that offers some shelter from your storms. Keep putting one foot in front of the other…
Off to start the fitness part of my day. Before finishing my fitness tonight, I plan on finding plenty of peace and relaxation. Even plan on combining BOTH, before the day is over. Peaceandfitness….however you can find them, I wish you BOTH, too.
