Meatless Monday – though salads are great every day! Do something good for your mind, body and spirit each day .. as well as the environment. Health is wealth. I usually make my own dressing too, no hidden calories. I have some edamame in this mixture organic mixed greens salad for a bit of protein, roasted corn as summer comes to an end too .. black beans are good with this one as well. I added almonds rather than croutons.
My Go To Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing :
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oul
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or orange juice, or pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon fresh crushed garlic (optional) – I love garlic and it’s good for you! No fresh garlic? You can substitute with garlic powder.
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
1 teaspoon dried or fresh parley- you can also use cilantro to change up recipe and depending on what you’re pairing it with
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
Fresh cracked pepper or a course grind.
In small bowl whisk together all ingredients, you can also use your food processor.
Use a measuring spoon to drizzle on salad as you wish and depending on size of your salad. If you keep these items handy you can always whip together a cute and healthy vinaigrette dressing.
Back to my morning walks this week as a part of my daily routine. It always feels great to get steps in – make sure you do too. Heart health is important even more so with the Covid-19 pandemic. Daily walks are great for lowering blood pressure and an instant mood booster. A lot of people were out so of course facial covering in full effect. Careful in my steps so I don’t trip and fall though! I didn’t wear my sling today for my cast.
An inspirational message and honey turmeric tea in my favorite mug I was in heaven when I saw these leopard print napkins at the store – had to get! It’s the little things in life that can bring the greatest joy!
To those who’ve asked on my social media FB / IG .. I’m on the mend since my recent slip and fall. My attitude is always upbeat and positive. I’m doing great bones in shattered wrist are healing just fine, still a bit of pain but not like the agony I felt when it happened and these past two weeks as well as when I had to have my wrist bones pushed into place and reset for cast last week .. chile listen – it’s no joke.
My back also still hurts a bit. I’ve since ordered a ton of socks “with grip” to wear in the house lol. Lesson learned.
Sleeping is difficult because of the cast and being uncomfortable as are most small tasks around the house, getting dressed, brushing my hair, the list goes on giving me an even greater respect to those who manage and adapt just fine with loss of limbs or being born without them at all keeping things in perspective.
Declined surgery so I’ll be in cast another 3 to 4 weeks, use of my left hand only every task is a challenge but I’m managing, have continued wrapping up promotions for my latest release “The Healing” and just released The APX Music Remix.
Join me live later today with michael_colyar page 6 PM PST talking “The Healing” – healing, life and more! #jodywatley #life #music – no matter what you’re going through, keep your Wattage!
My orthopedic specialist is really great and has one of those up beat demeanors which has helped during this process, he’s been very reassuring as well as a pleasant staff- these things make a difference.
Spending so much time at home, household mishaps can be more likely.
In the now the traditional outlets are no longer the only medium for interviews or information in the dominance of social media. In creating awareness for my latest release “The Healing” I’ve definitely reached a variety of people – I’m sure this IG Live with be no exception. As always any interview is a fresh and unpredictable experience, so tune in!
