We did Yoga!… Why? Because September is National Yoga Month
1500+ studios are offering 1 week free and there are 1000+ Yoga month events nation wide. Check out the link and find something near you.
Med School starts tomorrow and I’ve been planning how to eat healthy and efficiently. Here are some tips from me and Dr. Barbara Rolls’s The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet book (Facebook & Amazon). For lunch salads, I buy mostly pre-cut and washed items to quickly throw together. For dinners, I use whole vegetables and prepare them quickly, mostly by boiling. I’m not a fan of frozen vegetables because mine always end up soggy…I also prepare big batches of grains and refrigerate them for the week. However, I did see some frozen cubed butternut squash and frozen cooked lentils that looked promising. I absolutely hate frozen zucchini…bleghhh soggy tasteless mess.
What’s more important for you? Saving time or saving money?
Hope everything is going well! I miss everyone =)
Recently, Sebrina wrote about amazing uses for lemon beyond eating. That got me thinking about another citrus fruit, the orange, and what its rind can be used for once it’s peeled away.
You can get that fresh orangey smell in your home without using any harmful sprays by either boiling up your orange rinds or putting them into your dehydrator. Your room will be immersed in the wonderful orange smells and you won’t have to worry about breathing in any toxic fumes.
After you are done dehydrating your orange rinds as an air freshener, put them in a cotton bag and hang them in a spot to help neutralize odors. The bathroom is a prime location for this.
You can boil up the orange rinds and use the boiled water to wash your mirrors. This is more friendly smelling glass cleaner than using straight vinegar.
