I’ve been on a little bit of a hiatus since my last post. Things have been just a little cray cray and we’ve had more than a few life changes goin on. But I’m here and I’m super excited to be back! (I’ll write a post in the about me section to give you a look at what’s been happening in my world later).
Let’s dive right back into it shall we?
Weight Loss Tip Tuesday (oh how I have missed you!)
Cook more. Yup, you heard me. Get in that kitchen and cook! It’s as simple as that!
When you do the cooking, you have way more control over what goes in your food. A gallon of oil on my veggies? Umm…no thanks! I’ll just steam them with water. A truck load of salt on my food? I’ll stick with a pinch instead.
You can decide if you want organic, hormone free, low salt, no oil, gluten free and/or unprocessed food. Plus, you get to decide how you want to cook it! Some restaurants use microwaves for a lot of their food. This is a big no no! If I’m going out and spending the money to pay ppl to make my food, they better make it! Not just nuke it!
And here’s a bonus, cooking is fun! I used to think that I had to follow a recipe EXACTLY as it was written. I wouldn’t deviate at all. Like never.
Now I realize how boring that is! I look at recipes all the time and tweak them like crazy. Before you know it, they’re unrecognizable from the original recipe. And no one dies. The world doesn’t stop turning and most of the time I end up loving my creative revisions.
So, get in that kitchen and cook!
You didn’t think I’d tell you to cook and then leave you hanging did you? Here’s a simple, delicious recipe for ya:
Pears with Balsamic
1 pear – thinly sliced
1/2-1 tsp balsamic vinegar (any kind)
-Arrange the pears on a plate and drizzle the balsamic vinegar over them. Enjoy at room temp or put in the fridge to make them cold.
Feel free to add things to this recipe. Maybe add some fresh basil chopped and sprinkled on top, or a pinch of red pepper flakes to spice things up. Like honestly, anything goes!
Let your inner creativity out to play, you just may like what you find!
P.S. Here’s a selfie just for you! It has been a while after all 😉
