I love this beautiful photo of blood orange peels from Teresa at http://foodonfifth.com/.
Much like winter won’t let go of spring, the past few weeks have been full of bad news and sickness …and very much lacking in bright spots. Today, I’m focusing on happy things, movement, sunshine, and simple reminders that we’re all human and need a little grace every now and then.
During this time, I’ve been doing a study on Asian cuisine …I’ve been making veggie rolls at home and tried lumpia (what’s that?) and bibimbap (what’s that?) for the first time. So of course, I’m obsessed with this Quinoa Avocado, Cucumer, and Spinach Sushi from thesmartcookieblog.com. I’ll have to try that recipe soon.
Sun Salutation for Kids (So catchy…and even adults can get in a good stretch once in a while)
I admire Dooce’s advocacy for mental illness, and I’m always thankful for this annual reminder from her that asks for a little extra leeway for yourself and/or friends, family, coworkers, etc. that might be having a harder time at this point in the year.
I’ve been working out using Keaira’s channel (cookin’ in the kitchen is one of my favorite moves). I’m really enjoying it, and it’s giving me lots of energy. I was pumped to find the 30 Day Challenge to follow. Go #TeamLashae!
If you’re a Pandora user, do yourself a favor and type in Happy by Pharrell. Such a great station to brighten your day.
Have a great week!
