Hope you are all snuggled up and warm this chilly Thursday!
I so wish I was snuggled up in my duvet right now for a nice nap… but that’s besides the point, its 12.40pm here and sleepy time is a no no!
What is a –go right now and is so right is a link up with Amanda @RunningwithSpoons for ‘Thinking Out Loud’!
So I wasn’t planning on doing this post today but I realised the one I was hoping to write needed more planning – it would have been rushed if I had completed it today. Bummer. I hate changing plans but love a good thinking out loud post so a win overall really. And I would rather work on this other post, give it time and thus resulting in a better post. Win!
I actually do make a lot of my own food creations but don’t tend to ‘recipe them up’. Why? Because they are savoury. From my blog research sweet recipes seem to ‘sell’ better than savoury – I guess cause they are classed as a treat and everyone wants a treat, right? So I haven’t really branched into it (and there are so many awesome bloggers out there with killer sweet recipes!). But from now on I am hoping to post a lot of my savoury recipes as I have realised, ‘hey they are pretty tasty’ and ‘why not’. Also I got a pretty good reaction to my roasted sweet potato and Brussels sprout recipe a few weeks back.
I’m not saying I will never post a sweet recipe but to be honest, if I want sweet I tend to grab an apple or some dates!
Yoga at home
Yoga at CrossFit is no more – classes had to end due to low turnout. Such a shame. However I have been doing yoga at home thanks to some online classes! Yoga at CrossFit helped me to understand the flow and basic movements and because of this I have taken to the online classes quite well. I use the classes on MSN health and fitness – link HERE.
Bone Broth Machine!
Over the next few weeks it is David and I’s aim to turn into bone broth making machines! We can get free range chicken bones from Whole Foods and plan to get the slow cooker out and brew up a huge amount – keep some, freeze most. This broth can be used as an ingredient or simply sip hot on its own for a dose of incredible nutrients. Bone broth is the best medicine!
(Ps the picture is of our Christmas turkey bones pre crock pot cooking!)
Shout Out to NomNomPaleo!
I just want to do a wee shout out here to Michelle over @NomNomPaleo. I know you have heard me talk about her before but seriously this woman is a culinary god! Currently posting everyday right now with Whole30 compliant recipes, she is a great resource for those wanting to try the challenge. Challenges not your cup of tea, check out her site and recipes anyway – you don’t have to be Paleo to love and enjoy her recipes – you just have to love real food!
Sunday is the Super Bowl! Ok so I know a lot of you know that, but any of my UK/ European based readers probably won’t. It really does slip under the radar here.
However, we are very lucky (as American football fans) that one of our TV channels shows the game! So as per the past several years, we will be staying up to watch the game – oh and by staying up I mean it begins at 11pm and ends approx 3.30am – yup, we need the next day off to sleep! But I am so excited – wings, crudities and margaritas in case you are wondering!
Are you bummed if plans change? Even if the change is just as good?
Are you drawn to more sweet or savoury recipes?
Watching the Super Bowl on Sunday? Drink and snack of choice?
