When I think about what I am full time every day all day, I am a mom. I may not be the best mom in the world, but it is the one constant in my life and it’s one big part of who I am. When I think about my health, my vision, my life and where I’m going to put my energy, it is always with the kids in mind - whether those rug rats know it or not. And, believe me, they will doubt you. If you're a parent, you know what I mean.
How can I stay balanced? How can I encourage them? How can I give them space? How can I be strong for them? All of these questions float about in the background while my body does my day to day life activities.
Mmmm cooking again!
so while scrounging around not wanting things to go to waste, I made this!
Broccoli mashed potatoes:
2-3 c broccoli
5 toes garlic, peeled
1/4 c water
>>> steam the garlic and broccoli w/ salt, pepper & tumeric until bright green and soft but not overcooked
>>> put broccoli and garlic mix in food processor
>>> add avocado, plain soy milk, one pat Kerry gold butter and a dash sea salt if needed (to taste)
>>> process until smooth
in the other large cast iron skillet we have:
4 pcs organic chicken (thigh or breast)
(First cook covered)
Lay the chicken on top 2 large chopped garlic toes, and about a cup eggplant slices in strips and sprinkle a bit of tumeric on top
Sea salt and pepper to taste and turn a few times
When the chicken is about done, lid comes off to brown chicken a bit, then add 1/2 c apple cider and squeeze one lime, reduce a bit for a nice thick gravy
As you're reducing, steam a pile of power greens on top which will wilt in the steam
Yum! A nice, healthy meal!
