All the info on the new site is there … I had wanted to make my own layout and finish it before starting content on there but then I decided I wanted to start putting content on (more for my own documenting purposes…) sooooo here it is, check it out if you wish :) Make sure to look again when the new layout is live (whenever it may be, but if you Google Reader the site you’ll know! haha)
Well I’ve come full circle and have as of today bought a domain and hosting because I’ve decided I wanna document my life, findings, pictures better all in my own way with no restrictions. I’m pretty sure I don’t have enough time for this but damnit I’m gonna make it work.
Currently watching this… haven’t gotten through the whole thing, yet, but I will. My life goal is to depend as little as possible on medicine and be healthy, energetic, and happy primarily through diet and exercise. It really is the best medicine :)
Corn, onions, chickpeas sauteed in a little oil and butter. Decided I needed more butter so I added cilantro (curiously I have developed a liking for cilantro), chives, and red pepper. It was good and satisfying :)
actually, just over a year since I started this blog. Boy has time passed quickly, but it’s been so fun scrolling through this blog and seeing the day I gave myself crap for overindulging in goldfish (funny I didn’t realize this until now but I think my 26 year addiction to goldfish has been cured. I used to crave them regularly but I haven’t for months!), reflections on why I run (“part one”… yeah, part two never happened… yet..? stay tuned! ;)), falling in love with kettlebells (still love ‘em and in fact started my day with a kettlebell workout just this morning! :)), finishing the triple crown, discovering I could do real on-my-toes pushups (funny can’t believe it’s been a year… I still get scared I’m gonna “lose” it and get excited when I can still do one.. haha!), when I thought I had figured out how to make this "lifestyle change" (I’ve since made so much progress here), getting my favorite piercings (they’re little and a bit hidden but I love them and I got them to remind myself of all the positive changes I made and goals I reached last year), my first batches of kale chips and massaged kale salad and so much more…
Can’t wait to see what I come up with next :) I also just sent this blog to my mom so I hope she’s reading right now. Hi mom!
Apparently it is possible to make “caesar” dressing using yogurt as a base:
(plain yogurt + a little minced anchovies + a little dijon mustard + a minced garlic clove + parmesan cheese. I then threw in chives because I had them but I don’t think they really did a whole lot and I wasn’t intending on adding them in the first place. I also used my own homemade yogurt which I *think* is a little less tart than store bought.. just an fyi so with store bought yogurt it might be a little tart. This one was not overly tart, probably also because I left out lemon juice which is commonly in caesar dressing recipes.)
Apparently combining the above two with some shrimp (seasoned with a little old bay seasoning and cayenne pepper) creates an EPIC salad… best one I’ve had in awhile:
….. apparently I *do* like my salad drenched with dressing if the dressing is homemade and healthy :D
Mmmmm yummy charbroiled smoky flavor with a refreshing crunch (from the inside pieces of the lettuce) and creamy savory dressing and shrimp. It’s a must try!
Oh and I can’t take a ton of credit for this, inspiration for this meal was found here at Fitnessista.
Visited the parents this weekend and mom has a dehydrator so i made “cheesy” (“cheese” flavor provided by nutritional yeast) dehydrator kale chips. They were a total hit with the whole fam and i have been munching on them no stop all day at work :D
