Well hello my friends, it's been a whirlwind of personal obligations over the past week, which has kept me from doing what I love to do — blogging. A week without a post is far too long for my liking.
One of the healthy living habits I encourage, is to develop outlets that allow creativity. For me, everything that goes into my blog, is such an outlet. I find when I am creative, my mind is calm, almost carefree, and I have a sense of peace as well as purpose.
As an introvert I have found, that after a period of high engagement with others, I need time to decompress first before my mind gets creative. I need my alone time to recharge and be inspired. This is how I operate. The past 10 days, I have been pulled in many directions, some unforeseen crisis and some planned obligations and my time, which I dedicate to Healthy Living How To has dwindled.
When this happens I go into functional mode and “just do it” but I long to be left alone for a day, to just be. The end is in sight and balance will be restored. At least what is balance for me.
Last night, with the help of my husband, we created a meal together in the kitchen. I even dusted off my camera and took some pictures, which is one of my favorite parts of being a blogger.
I posted a picture of our Chicken Marinara with Sun Dried Tomatoes over Zucchini Noodles on the Healthy Living How To Facebook page last night and of course got requests for a recipe. However, this meal, like others I make, was just an outlet of creativity. There really isn't a recipe to follow per se. It was a “throw things together” and “taste as you go” kind of meal that turned out spectacular.
What follows is a list of ingredients, and you my friends, will need to add your own creativity to this recipe. Is that a deal?!
