Basic Sally Mentality

I remember years ago when I spoke to my now good friend Nadine Moxon, telling her that my then “Military” physique was as good as I thought I could get.  And I distinctly remember her laughing at me and saying, “No way Mate, You could get WAY leaner!”  Haha.  Love you Nadine!  But I share this story to tell you that we all get into the “Basic Sally” Mentality and get stuck.  We get in our own way and forget the basics as to what it takes to succeed.

I wanted a recipe where I am excited to eat my vegetables and this is doing it for me.  Better yet, I can prepare this once a week and it prepares enough for both my husband and I.  Now if the kids dive in, that’s okay, but I’d have to prepare twice as much or two batches in a week.
