I’m tired as I type which reminds me to remind you that getting adequate sleep is more important than anything you might accomplish by staying up too late working on what “must” get done. If we deprive ourselves of precious recovery time, life simply becomes less enjoyable as we continue to burn out emotionally and physically. Not to mention the scientific proof that lack of sleep is an underlying cause of many health issues and has been linked to the likes of increased cancer risk (especially in women) to fun stuff like depression. So get your Zs people!!
Now for some food fun. Check out this blog by Katie at Norcal – a recipe I have not yet tried but wanted to share anyway because it just sounds so tantalizing!! Also, here’s a blueberry creation I just popped into the oven tonight for a fun bedtime snack for the kids. Enjoy!
2 cups frozen organic blueberries
1/2 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
4 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
Preheat oven to 350. Layer the blueberries in a pie pan and sprinkle the shredded coconut evenly over the blueberries, followed by the sliced almonds. Drizzle the entire dish with the orange juice and bake for 15 minutes. Finish under the broiler on high for another minute or until the almonds start to brown.
