HEALTH AND WEALTH for 2016
Two of the main foci for this year, however, are
HEALTH and WEALTH
Health is all about diet and exercise.
Wealth is about fearless aspirations and "Action 10X."
At the heart of both is self-mastery and RESTRAINT
HEALTH, WEALTH AND RESTRAINT
I want to really and truly find a way to NOURISH my family with healing happy foods and mealtime ritual. With flavor, beauty and joy. With creativity and risk taking and persistence. With seeking out accompaniment to improve my capacity to NOURISH. By creating a PLAN.
PLANNING, ROUTINE, ORDER and ORGANIZATION. DISCIPLINE and RESTRAINT.
I just came back from two weeks in China and so often I found myself saying "I wish we could eat like this at home."
Warm liquidy things: freshly made soymilk, millet-pumpkin-peanut-mung bean porridge, soups (the defeating thought that enters my mind is that my family will never eat this)--perhaps I can create my own warm liquidy recipes they would eat??
Chinese cold dishes: cucumber, potato, soybean sprouts, carrots, cilantro/muer/onion/pepper + seasoning--sesame oil, vinegar, olive oil, ginger, garlic
simply delicious stir fried vegetable dishes
home made pea flour noodles
I want Chinese inspiration fused with Western flavors and healthy grain baking.
How will I make a plan for our family eating??? Use my reflections book and write plans and lists and idea brainstorming daily.
How will I plan for our financial management??? Use my reflections book and write plans and lists and idea brainstorming daily.
As I reflect: find ways to include the family in authentic consultation around these issues.
Happy New Year!
