Family Fun and Healthy Eating

Lessons that I have learned this week- 1) Don't ask how someone is doing if you really don't care to know! -My southern hospitality gets the better of me. I genuinely care about everyone and I just want people happy. The people pleaser in me always wants to fix the problem so I cannot help myself but go into a loooooong discussion. 2) Toddlers are easily entertained- Peter piper pizza can be fun, but my kiddos were the happiest while eating ice cream and playing with balloons. 3) Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream- I tried Greek yogurt in many recipes and I am convinced it is a grade a substitution! I made pioneer woman's sour cream enchiladas. White chicken enchiladas  I use boneless chicken thighs and always forget the jalapeño! I love this dish because it's easy to prep! Enjoy! 4) My day is better when I start with a smoothie and a workout! I have gettin braver when it comes to my nutribullet smoothies! I've been adding mushrooms and beets! Beets are highly nutritious and “cardiovascular health” friendly root vegetables. Certain unique pigment antioxidants in the root as well as in its top-greens have been found to offer protection against coronary artery disease and stroke, lower cholesterol levels within the body, and have anti-aging effects. Nutrition and You The health benefits of mushrooms include relief from high cholesterol levels, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and diabetes. It also helps in weight loss, and increases the strength of your immune system. Organic Facts The more colorful your food the better!! Things I am thankful for:
  1. My husband went shopping for me on Sunday in exchange for hanging out with his big brother for the afternoon! Yessss!
  2. Swimming tires my kids out completely. My no-napping three year old gladly jumps in bed with me and let's me read to her.
  3. That I have pushed my family in to healthy routines! We bike or go to the park after dinner every night! Sunday is church day no fail! I started waking up before my husband leaves for work. I meditate and set the mood so he wakes up relaxed listening to jazz or guitar instrumentals. If I don't push us who will?!?!
Have a great week! Venice
