Happy Monday morning, happy peoples! I have to say the new week is off to a great start for me despite a dramatic incident of a slip and trip at an ungodly hour this morning. :p Needless to say- I survived, thus escaping with a decent rug burn for which I can boast. haha!
Sunday afternoon was a bit of culture with the girlfriends! I could literally swoon over a good British accent. Just saying . . .
Packin' a healthy lunch last night made with spinach leaves, tomato hunks, and trying out a new sauerkraut to be ready to grab this morning. =)
And, on a sad note- my t2i is currently out of commission. :( It's not reading my card so until it's fixed iPhone pictures it is! Guess that isn't all bad but my photography is a passion of mine and I'm so used to "my" camera that it's weird not using it. :p
Ok- onto some yum-ness for ya!
Another recent kitchen creation, folks! Fresh broccoli is such a good health choice.
In a nutshell, broccoli is a good source of:
- Folate (you need this to make new cells! righto . . . kind of important if you want to stay alive!!!)
2 cup chopped broccoli (or 4-5 crowns)
1/2 cup chopped pearl onions
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Marinated salad for at least 1 hour before serving. This recipe is great because you Store in refrigerator for up to 2 days. Enjoy!
