Fist-Bumps for Everyone!
Is it Wednesday again? How the days fly by. I’m swamped under a self-imposed deadline but I couldn’t let Wednesday zip by without offering you a WritersButt post. I know how y’all are waiting, on the edge of your seat, clutching your water bottles in excitement for what I will offer you.
Today I’d like for everyone to toot his or her own horn. I know you expect me to tell you to do this, don’t do that, eat this, avoid that … drink your water, eat fat, and do your potty squats! Today is your chance to tell me what you are doing about which you feel AWESOME.
This was prompted by a recent trip to my grocery store. I live in a pretty small town. I run into people I know every single time I go to the store. More often than not, the person will immediately start to justify the food in their cart.
“This is for the kids.” “It’s my wife’s birthday.” “I’m bad, I know.” “It’s my cheat day (week!)”
This sort of thing happens on Facebook and Twitter too. At one point there was the Twitter hashtag #donttellginger. Cracked me up! And yet, I don’t feel anyone needs to justify any of their choices to me. If they feel justified in their actions, I’m cool with that. It’s yourself to whom you must answer, right? Not me? As I often say to my clients, “You’re only cheating yourself.”
Now, for all those things you think you’re doing ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’, I know you’re all doing a whole lot right in your life. I know this because I know you’re awesome!
So, tell me … what have you done in the last week, or even today that you feel good about. It can be WritersButt related; did your potty squats all day, did a mini-workout with burpees and lunges, drank your 100 oz of water. Stayed OFF THE SCALE. Let’s celebrate! Or maybe you hit your word count, finally returned to your manuscript and just wrote something, did a random act of kindness, rediscovered a craft … anything that made you feel good and not that you were failing!
I want to cheer for you. I’m here waiting to give you a fist-bump, so lay it on me. Brag on yourself. You deserve it!
And now, I give you a recipe for Southwestern Frittata. I made this last night and it was devoured! So yummilicious.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup yellow onion, finely diced (I had about ½ cup)
1 small jalapeno, seeds removed and minced
2 garlic cloves, minced (I used 4)
1 cup sweet potato, peeled and grated (I had more)
1 pound grass fed ground beef (or any ground meet of your choice)
1 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup salsa verde
Sea Salt and cracked pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. In a large saute pan, saute the onions and minced jalapeno in the coconut oil over medium heat until the onions are translucent.
Add the ground beef and cook just until it starts to brown and add the grated sweet potato and garlic.
Cook until the beef is completely browned and the sweet potato is soft. Add the chili powder, cumin, and salsa, stir and cook until heated through. Taste and season with a little sea salt if desired.
Transfer the meat mixture to a 11×7 glass baking dish and spread the meat mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the 12 eggs add pour over the meat mixture in the baking dish.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle when you jiggle the pan.
DIG IN and LOVE!! Have a great week.
