Recipe of the Week
Breakfast Salad Sunny Side Up
I know what you’re thinking… salad for breakfast? You’ve gotta be kidding me! To that I would say, don’t knock it till you try it.
There’s delicious simplicity in throwing a fistful of greens in a bowl and using a rich, delicious egg yolk as the dressing. When you’re feeling more ambitious, add some sautéed vegetables like leeks, mushrooms, and peppers on top of the greens. Bon appetit!
Excerpted from Anti-Inflammatory Eating for a Happy, Healthy Brain
I’ve been listening to different podcasts on Happiness and learned about Catherine Price’s new book, “The Power of Fun: How to Feel Alive Again."
I’ve committed to weaving more moments of fun, delight, and enjoyment into my everyday life.
My first assignment was to identify my “Fun Factors” and “Anti-Fun Factors.” Following are a few of mine:
- Connection (being with awesome people)
- Trying something new
- Moving my body
- Staying up really late
- Tight clothing (really anything that requires me to change out of my lounge pants!)
- Small talk
I had a super fun moment in yoga class this week when learning a new pose called the Hurdler Pose (Eka Pada Koundinyasa II). The pose looked hard, but I put zero pressure on myself to actually get into it. I just decided to try and have fun with it. Guess what?! I kind of made it into the pose! I felt exhilarated! I definitely want to add more moments like this one into my life.
How about you? When was the last time you had fun? What are your fun and anti-fun factors?
I’ve been enjoying afternoon tea to warm up on these cold winter days, and I’m sipping my way through tea from these incredible Milwaukee-based companies:
- Outwoken Tea - Fine niche teas from small farms around the world. The packaging is compostable, plantable, and uses algae ink. A tree is planted with every purchase.
- Urbal Tea Company - Delicious small batch herbal teas
- Rishi Tea - Premium organic teas imported directly from gardens across the world
And, if you want a cheeky mug to sip your tea from, look no further than this playful mug from Sparrow Collective.
Sunday Wellness Series
Last week, we asked about your interest in reading a third weekly email that deep dives into health & wellness topics that I’m passionate about. Huge thanks to those who sent me feedback.
Good news! We’re moving forward with the Chakra Series! First up is the Root Chakra. The Root Chakra is very connected to feelings of safety and security, self-confidence, and knowing that we are enough. It also supports feelings of trust and belonging. I’ll be sharing tools, techniques, yoga practices, foods, and music that balance the Root Chakra.
Last week, our email service provider had technical issues that resulted in some linking issues. Thankfully, the problem has since been resolved.
If you ever have trouble accessing links or miss a Weekly Newsletter, please note that we post every week’s issue on The Blog.
