Be a Hero!

Many times in our lives we look for someone to come and save us or to be our hero, but did you know that just one small act of kindness on your part can make you a hero as well. Just this week I was thinking what makes a hero, and this is what I came up with: Helping Each one Reach Our goals.

Although you are on you own personal journey to wellness here are some things that you can do to help others:


  • Become a walking or workout partner
  • Offer to share healthy office snacks like fresh fruit, salads or whole grains
  • Check in with friends and family to check on their daily steps
  • Post healthy recipes on blogs and facebook
  • Share new shopping finds and sales
  • Listen to friends who may be struggling on their journey and offer advice

If you have been on this journey, you are sure to have some tips and tricks that will help someone. Today I wish to share one of my favorite recipes:

Garlicky Green beans

 

Ingredients

½ lb fresh green beans

2 tbsp Olive Oil

Coarse garlic powder with parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Wash and snap ends of the green beans as needed. In a large non-stick skillet add olive oil and heat pan. Add green beans, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir frequently until the green beans are the desired tenderness. Season to taste.

These green beans taste great hot or cold. My friend and YOU Gal, Stacy, eats them right out of the pot. Enjoy and don’t forget that you are a HERO!

Have you ever gotten to the last little bit of a vegetable or fruit and thought they only thing left to do was toss it? Or maybe you didn't get to one before it looked like it should be thrown out? Well there's no need to create more food waste! Here are two foods you can regrow right at home instead of throwing out.

Leftover Ginger

  1. Fill a bowl or cup with water and place your bit of ginger root inside.
  2. After a few weeks, watch for little sprouts to form.
  3. At this point, transfer the ginger to some potted soil. Give it plenty of space and moisture.
  4. After a few weeks, harvest your new ginger root!

Sprouted Potato

  1. Note where the sprouts (or eyes) are on the potato. Cut it in half so there are sprouts on both halves.
  2. Let the halves dry out overnight on a paper towel.
  3. Plant the dried potato halves in soil, cut side down.
  4. Small potatoes will be ready to harvest in about 10 weeks, while larger potatoes will be ready in about three to four months.
