Healthy Lifestyle Shortcuts: Lesson 2

Periodically on my blog I will post my fun Healthy Lifestyle shortcuts to help keep life a little simpler for you. Today is an easy peasy healthy meal that I absolutely love!

As I’ve shared in the past I’m not the best cook but not the worst, so I guess you can call me an average cook. When I’m in the kitchen I like quick, simple, easy and healthy. So today I’m sharing my all time favorite salad.

Diet is key for me to maintain a healthy lifestyle so the more foods I truly LOVE eating, the easier it is for me to keep making healthy choices.

I hope you enjoy my All Time Favorite Kale Salad!

Ingredients

  • kale
  • grilled chicken
  • olive oil
  • lemon
  • pine nuts
  • parmesan

Directions

  1. Wash the kale; remove stems and chop into bite-sized pieces, place in bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Drizzle over kale salad.
  3. Add grilled chicken and sprinkle with pine nuts and parmesan and there you have it, Linda’s All Time Favorite Kale Salad. Enjoy!

One Healthy Habit that Changed My Life

As a 42-year-old woman I can honestly say I’ve spent at least half of my life or more attempting to find ways to be “healthy”. Like most people I start something new and think I’m going to stick with it this time and then fall off the wagon at some point and find myself at square one all over again.

On top of all the try again stop again yo-yoing; I end up feeling bad about myself while negative self-talk and defeating thoughts begin to weigh me down.

Can you relate?

But something dawned on my recently after a spiritual retreat I hosted. For the last twenty plus years I’ve practiced one healthy habit through ever trial, heartache, triumph and victory that has consistently brought me to better health. And with this practice I can honestly say I would not be the person I am today without it. It’s something that I don’t do every single day of my life, but it is something I reach for in times of deep struggle, frustration, anxiety and in times of reflection, hope, prayer, planning and dreaming.

The one healthy habit that continues to change my life and has for years is journaling.

There is no specific way to journal, it’s simply picking up a pen and putting it to paper. It can be one word or hundreds of words. You simply let your heart, mind and emotions lead you. I want to encourage you that even if you’re someone who does not like to write, you must give it a try!

I promise this is one new healthy habit that will propel you forward beyond anything you can imagine. Grab a journal and pen today!

I would love to hear from you. Leave me a comment and let me know one of your healthy habits.

Healthy Lifestyle Shortcuts: Lesson 1

shortcutSomething you might not know about me is I am the queen of shortcuts. It doesn’t matter where I am or what I am doing, I will find the quickest fastest way to accomplish anything! For example, when the winter rush floods the grocery stores for bread and milk and the lines are ten people deep, I simply walk up to the customer service counter and asked to be checked out there. No lines, no waiting, no fuss. It’s just the way I like to do things. Maybe it’s my personality type because I often get things done without wasting time but it really does come in handy especially when maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Periodically on my blog I will share my fun healthy lifestyle shortcuts to help keep life a little simpler for you. Today is an easy peasy healthy meal.

I’m not the best cook but not the worst, so I guess you can call me an average cook. When I’m in the kitchen I like quick, simple, easy and healthy. Several years ago I found a simple recipe for shredded crock-pot chicken and I’d say we probably eat it just about every other week. The best part is there are leftovers for 3 – 4 days! I typically eat it for lunch the next day and then skip a day and serve it for dinner again on the fourth day with different side dishes. You can use a variety of sauces (BBQ, Sriracha, Franks Red Hot sauce, spicy brown mustard, etc.) to change up the flavoring or make chicken salad out of it. It’s a great staple to have when making quick healthy food choices. I love to serve it with a side of Brussels sprouts lightly sautéed in Sriracha sauce and sweet potato rounds garnished with dried basil. I’ll add those two recipes down below as well.

Hope you have fun with this Healthy Lifestyle Cooking Shortcut! Let me know how it turns out for you or if you have any quick healthy recipes in the comments below!
