Om Shanti. I've been away and just returned. We are late. So sorry.
I love walking through grocery stores during changes of seasons. Up north you see it much more than here. Now we start to see more squash, pumpkin, broccoli, brussel sprouts, celery, ginger, jalopeno peppers, mushrooms, sweet potatoes and chard to only mention a few. Buy organic and start to experiment with recipes. Try doing a squash lasagna by cutting the pieces longways instead of rounds. Layer the long pieces and alternate with mushrooms, broccoli and sweet potatoes. Put some olive oil, fresh marjoram, basil, salt and pepper, earth balance and bake. Don't be shy. Get brave and start cooking with these seasonal veggies.
If you have any recipes send them in and we will publish for everyone else. Sweet potatoes are delish if you cut them into french fry size and boil for about 10-15 minutes when you put a fork into them they will be soft. Then drain them and coat with olive oil and kosher or Himalayan salt. Then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until they look crisp. Enjoy for now.
Remember to take that moment before you start to eat.
I would rather be cooking but I had to create this. I'm already late with the new blog and had to create an entirely new one because the other one was not serving its’ purpose. This one is pretty easy and I look forward to blogging. I am not digitally friendly. Not my realm. Anyway, we are here now with a new look and new location. If you notice we still have our Tips of the day, recipe and my kibbitzing. I'm still holding my weight loss at 20 lbs. It hasn't moved for a while. I guess that means the dreaded EEEE for exercise. I don't know why I have such a problem with that. Once a week I do a mat Pilates class and don't mind that. Anything else, I will find a million and one excuses why I can't do it. My new attitude is the more excuses the longer the delay for progress. If you don't have your health, your mind won't work as it should. Discover the spirit within.
