Did You Work On You Today!

Hello Lovely People,

In my quest to be consistent, I am actually typing this post via my cell phone. What a way to get my practice in,  using two fingers. LOL.

So, how was your day? Mine was ok, other than getting my workout in, I feel that I was not as productive as I could have been. However, I will not beat myself up about it, instead, I will strive to do better tomorrow.

Have you ever had one of those days when it seems as though the only thing u actually got accomplish was waking up and getting your workout in?  I’ m not complaining though, I am actually thankful that I was able to carve out some time for myself, to do something that is vital for my health and important to me.

When you think about it, that is the formula for working out. It’s primarily setting time aside to get in touch with yourself, to gain perspective and to contribute to your health and wellness. So, of course, you probably know what my next question is going to be and that is, “Did you work on you today?”

I hope you did or at least still have it on your “To Do List” for this evening. Until tomorrow, here’s wishing you a peaceful, and exciting evening.

INGREDIENTS

Servings: 6–8 (makes 40–50 nuggets)

3 carrots, peeled & cut into chunks

½ head cauliflower, broken up

1 head broccoli, broken up

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 egg

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1¾ cup plain bread crumbs

PREPARATION

1. In a food processor, blend carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, garlic, egg, onion powder, salt, and pepper until combined.

2. Add 1¼ cup of bread crumbs and blend just until incorporated.

3. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture and form a small circular shaped “nugget.”

4. Place the remaining ½ cup of bread crumbs in a bowl and cover each nugget with the bread crumbs.

5. Either pan-fry with a small drizzle of oil over medium-high heat until both sides are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Or you can bake them on a piece of parchment paper at 400˚F/200˚C for 25 minutes, flipping after the first 15 minutes.

6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

7. Enjoy!
