E-Newsletter, January 2005

Welcome to TASTE LIFE!! Life is easy and we make it hard. I am here to make your life easy with quick food for your body and soul through this short and sweet monthly ezine. Thank you for forwarding this newsletter to your family and friends.

LIVING WITH A CHOICE IN REAL LIFE

Ahh ~~ 2005 ~ A new year ~ new dreams and new changes in your life…OR so you thought! It is one thing to create them and another thing to do them. Studies say only 10% of people keep their resolutions. Personally, I know only 3 people who are still “doing” their resolution.

Make it different this year. Look at all you accomplished in 2004 ~ your glories, physical accomplishments and don’t forget the “biggie” – your emotional wins. Your review of the “old gold” lays a foundation for your resolutions for this year.

My husband Gary, ranked 45th in the country in his age group for triathlons which earned him an All American status. How did he do this? He managed his time so he could work out two times a day, ate healthy, and got plenty of rest – all this accompanied by excruciating knee pain. The news is what he feared: cartilage repair surgery in February. He had not planned on his body falling apart! Do we ever plan on our body falling apart? Oh well, change of plans for Gary – one more little life challenge for him. Don’t let little life challenges paralyze you. Instead, look at them as an opportunity to discover who you are.

Gary’s goals for this year are to have surgery, a recovery workout schedule and a written record of his workouts. I won’t be baking extra desserts because what he sees on the counter always lands in his mouth. Our environment is stronger than our will. Without all of the training, he simply can not afford “leisure calories.”

This year can be all about you despite your life’s little challenges.

Focus on what you want; and NOT on what you do not want. We think 60,000 thoughts a day and 90% are a repeat. Imagine, having 54,000 negative thoughts a day. No wonder you may get stuck!

MIND DUMP — Write down what you want, so you don’t have to keep it in memory.
And, remember the simple coaching formula that guides my life CONCEIVE > BELIEVE> ACHIEVE!
Lastly, don’t forget to celebrate !!

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO IN JANUARY TO TASTE LIFE

  • When you wake up, and before your feet hit the floor declare ONE intention for the day and ONE action.
  • Jumpstart your metabolism by eating breakfast — your most important meal of the day.
  • Celebrate January Tea Month with a new tea. My personal favorite Whole Foods Ginger Citrus Tea or Stash Mint or Tazo Passion.
  • Feed your neighborhood friends – your birds. My fav mixture is peanuts, black oil sunflower seeds and cracked corn.
  • Enjoy the full moon on January 25th and make a wish!

5-INGREDIENT RECIPE OF THE MONTH

Spinach Tortellini Soup

This recipe helped my husband lose 20 pounds a few years ago and keep it off. Why? Hot foods make you feel full and we always ate a soup, salad and then our dinner. This quick recipe has ingredients you can keep on hand. And, if you are watching your weight, use only 2 or 3 tortellini in your soup bowl and add more spinach. The entire 6 ounce bag of spinach is only 70 calories.

2 - 14Π ounce cans of chicken broth or chicken stock of your choice
5 ounces or one half of a 10-ounce package of cheese tortellini
2 cups spinach
2 or 3 scallions, sliced
Cayenne pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan bring broth to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook according to the package directions. Stir in the spinach and scallions. Cook only until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Season with cayenne pepper or Cajun seasonings.
