It’s healthy to try new things, treat yourself a little, and switch things up to make life a little more…more.
Let me tell you my “news.”
I bought a new microwave Sunday. I go through microwaves like athletes go through running shoes. This one has a five year over-the-top warrantee to defend against my Midas touch of doom.
Microwaves are healthy. Because.
I finally broke down and started buying the big-boy jars of peanut butter.
Good for my economic health and the health of my soul.
I started taking some new health supplements. (It’s too soon to tell a difference.)
I bought some new clothes to accommodate my healthy body and give me that boost of “feel-good” we get when we look nice.
Our busy season is coming up and my current uniform of flowy tops and stretchy pants won’t do in the office with clients.
Self care, personal hygiene, taking the time to care for our appearance – Healthy!
I tried a new make-up. Love it. It’s super light, like a tint. I’ve always been a tinted moisturizer gal (if anything at all) even before the new BB creams. I can’t wait to try an actual BB though.
Some new sparkle — feels like looking life straight in the eye and saying “I LOVE YOU!”
I recently tried Raw Coconut Aminos instead of my beloved Braggs. (Sorry for the pic. Ow! My eyes!)
I’ve grown weary of vegetable protein so it’s nice to cut back a little and switch it up. The Coconut Aminos tastes great and have less sodium.
Another new – frozen vegetables. These Asian inspired mixes are great because I rarely have veggies like baby corn or water chestnuts in the house and this is waiting whenever the “Asian” mood strikes. (Is that PC? lol).
I’ll never be an “all frozen- all the time” girl but on occasion, why not? They’re just as healthy.
New Vitamin water flavor – it’s got caffeine (!) and lots of other weird things that probably aren’t healthy but the vitamins balance it out *wink*. I really just don’t care that much. lol :9
I tried a new salad dressing. It’s …meh. I’ve been trying to do the dressing thing more to see what I am missing. Really? I just prefer a simple extra-light tasting olive oil spritz — but variety is healthy as are fats – especially on greens.
I have another new dressing waiting for me to experiment with and let me tell you about ….wait for it….THESE NUTS (heehee).
Yeah – I hate to love these almonds (#crack#ingredients) but whatever.
Everything in moderation – INCLUDING MODERATION. <—Write that down.
Last month I found out Publix (my grocery store) will steam your seafood for free. I cannot express my pure unadulterated joy. It’s my new favorite “I’m tired” treat for dinner after work. Or..on Saturday. LOL.
It’s important to have go-to meal options that are healthy, easy and fast. Better than the drive-thrus and deliveries or skipping a meal.
You can get it seasoned, but when it comes to Cod I don’t mess around. All I need is the …drool….flaky buttery tasting flesh. #sorryvegheads
On one Atypical Tuesday I decided to switch things up by eating salmon. Salmon’s not really my favorite.
It’s delicious- but I’d never choose it first. I have to remind myself to get it every once in a while because of all the healthy fats.
And finally, new albums I’ve picked up. Music is the wallpaper of the mind. Good for the mind and soul, and when you shake that azz it’s good for the body.
Today’s Prompt for NHBPM was “News-Style Post” (??) and the other option was “A time you had to take the high road” (no thanks). So…this is what came out. Previous posts can be found here.
