Par to the Snips, and other Sunday Thoughts

by Lisa on January 2, 2011

Even though I don’t make resolutions at New Year’s, I do see the value and impact that the connotation of the date can have on our lifestyles.  And if you know me even a little bit, you know I’m all about cheating when it comes to getting healthier and improving habits (with minimal effort and maximal positivity!).

As a result of it being New Year’s, it was easier for me to turn down Matthew’s cheese balls (Snikiddy, but still cheese balls) yesterday and a no-brainer to say no to coffee this morning. I hope that with this running start (thanks to the date and to knowing that lots of other people are trying right now too) I can keep it up and maintain balance too.

Kimberly Snyder says, "Parsnips contain a bevy of important nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber, pantothenic acid, copper, manganese, and are a great source of niacin, riboflavin, B6, thiamine, magnesium, and potassium. And let’s not forget folic acid!" (This one is already peeled)

Matchsticks? Yes, out of parsnips. The effort to chop was annoying, I'd look for a shortcut! But I wanted them thin so they'd get crispy...

...And they did! Crispy fries with a twist and a bunch of nutrients (plus organic ketchup). I baked them on a cookie sheet until they looked like this---I didn't keep track of time, but you could just keep an eye on them :)

This was my lunch. I had planned to make guac, but I was hungry so I just ate it with a spoon.

Random Fact: My socks rarely match unless I'm going somewhere that will involve taking my shoes off. I often forget that this is not normal, but I just can't manage to keep track of matches (and can't be bothered to search).

What’s a random fact about you?

I’ve been planning on giving the blog a facelift for a month (since I decided not to quit blogging), and I think I’ll have time this week to work on it. So I hope you’ll let me know what you think!
