Eating well and staying healthy takes a bit of planning and discipline; creating and organizing simple systems to follow is key to achieving this lifestyle. Here are some of my own ….
A quick and simple recipe for a healthy start to the day; the recipe below is good for one serving.
Boil some water in a small pot and add the following:
3 tablespoon of oats 1 tablespoon each of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax, cranberries, and raw hemp seeds. 2 pcs. of dried prunes (optional)
Do not worry if you don’t have all the ingredients, just use what you have. The amount of water and thickness is up to each individual preference. Add water if your prefer a lesser consistency to your oatmeal.
Tip: For easy access and use, store the seeds in individual recycled small glass jars. Recycle and reuse some of the glass bottles from store bought products. I find the jelly, jam, honey and tomato sauce jars are the perfect size for storing seeds and nuts.
Instead of chips, place a few glass bottles of seeds and nuts on the coffee table for a healthier snack. Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and walnuts are a few of our favourites. Use a serving tray to anchor these bottles, the coasters and other items you have on the table.
A juice blend of celery, peppermint and cilantro made fresh daily is said to be beneficial to your eyes. Needless to say, I’ve tried this and have come to conclude that some people might not be partial to the taste. Here’s what I did to get the most of the 3 ingredients. Drink peppermint tea (good for digestion as well), use celery in my soup and veggie dishes, carrots as well, and garnish my soup or meat dishes with cilantro…. lots of them…. I figure I’ve got all of them covered.
Till my next blog…. have a Happy Victoria Day Weekend everyone!
