“Your direction is more important than your speed”
Hello, sweet friend…
It is the start of the first full week of 2020…
and several years since I have chosen a word for the year...
However the time has come…
I also admit that entering the roaring 20’s has inspired me…
after a bit of pondering…
I chose the word “cultivate”
This word seems very apropos for me at this time in my life… Since there are many things that I would like to give more care & attention to. So recently I purchased a 5 year journal to assist & track my growth…those dream seedlings…nurturing them…taking that first step… then the second… and third. Reminding myself daily that even the smallest baby steps can lead to the biggest of dreams starting.
Healthy Easy Veggie Bowl
If Joe and I are going out for lunch we often end up at a wonderful little vegan restaurant called the Tin Thistle café located in North Bend, Oregon. This recipe was inspired by several of their village bowls that they serve at the cafe. The recipe doesn’t really need any measurements…since you can make as much or as little as you want there’s really no wrong way to make this bowl… Here’s my version.
1 head lettuce ( your choice) cut into small pieces
2 cups brown rice cooked
1 avocado sliced or diced
2 tomatoes diced
1 can black beans
1 can black pitted olives sliced
cheddar cheese (optional)
1. Layer all the ingredients in a bowl.
2. Eat slowly
