Thanks for putting up with my lazy but appropriate re-posts for the beginning of this year. Obviously, my resolution was NOT to post more new stuff because that resolution would be long out the door.
Instead, my resolution is to take better care of myself and for me that means very little self-induced pressure for things that really don’t matter in the big picture (I.E. Frequent new posts or keeping a neater house). Have you considered the torment you cause yourself over things that frankly just don’t mean much? So my advice, if you think my opinion is worth a grain of salt, is to be kind to yourself, at least as kind as you are to others. Do things that make you happy and bring you peace, and take it a little easier on the self-talk. My self-talk is notoriously fairly kvetchy.
And just in case YOUR resolution is to eat healthier…I have these posts to help you along. These mini Bacon and Potato Frittatas only skimp on fat and calories but thankfully not on flavor. They are so simple to make, and are easy to grab out the door or make ahead for company.
Maybe you have been just so darn good all week, but now are craving something “bad”, something sweet and chocolatey…so how about these very fluffy and fairly low on fat and calories Chocolate Chip Scones. They have been given the Courtney stamp of approval who is a certified chocoholic like myself.
Or if you really need to feel like you are indulging one weekend morning, make this Mock Hollandaise Sauce for a healthified Florentine Benedict and you won’t miss the gluttonous version one iota. I swear. This sauce is so yummy and will fool you into thinking you have just splurged.
Need a fairly angelic dinner that will thrill your tastebuds and make you feel a tad sinful? Then make this Salmon with Greek Yogurt Dill Sauce.
Mostly, I hope you take a nugget from this post and decide that “I like you very much. Just as you are”, (Bridget Jones’s Diary quote for those it was lost on).
If you have a resolution or healthy post you want to share, feel free to leave it in the comments.
