Winter Slaw


Right, so we are all eating healthy for the next 365 days and exercising and being decent human beings and recycling (wait, I already do that!) and… Ok, we won’t. The ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ thing is ridiculous. No one sticks to them. They are unrealistic and mostly unachievable. Designed to make us feel like failures when we behave like humans and don’t stick to them.

With that said, my friend Kelly at Kelly_Does_Life posted earlier today her “More” and “Less” lists. Not Resolutions. Just things she is striving to do more and less of daily. That’s doable and realistic I love it.

I am striving to complete rebuilding myself after becoming a person I don’t truly respect so here is what I am going to be doing more and less of to achieve that in 2018. I may or may not have mirrored some things from Kelly’s list…

And I also give you a recipe for a yummy winter slaw – You know, for those who are aiming to eat more veggies!
