Get Healthy Blog Hop

Get Healthy blog hop

who pay attention to my subtle asides may have figured out that I am not
especially thin. I was in decent shape and able to lift more than my weight a
decade ago, before a health trauma smacked into my world like the asteroid
which allegedly caused an extinction level event. So trying to find ways to be
healthy is important. I am by no means an expert, but I will share the few gems
I came across.

Yoga Yak is good, wise,
and kind.

Wait! Don’t run away! I
know a few readers question this. “Yoga is for thin people who are already
in shape.” I thought that too. But I found out that there are moves for
the round and curvy who can not balance their whole body on just their wrist.
(It hurts me just to look at that ad. Why must people leave magazines open!?!)
These are actually doable. Even I, weeble wooble that I have become, managed to
do 95% of this work out. (Seriously, my wrists have some troubles. I probably
have carpel tunnel. That thought scares me. Moving on.)


Okay, next up is my take on a recipe.

Things I have done to
make that my own:

  • Used turkey in place of chicken a few times
  • Skipped the capers every time, because I do not like
  • Added a sprinkle of Feta Cheese (low fat)
  • Used sodium free chicken stock from Herb Ox
  • My skillet couldn’t handle all of this, so I make it in
    my wok
  • Defrosted yellow and zucchini squash– SQUEEZED WATER OUT- added that.

For those
of you who are only on the healthy wagon a little bit:

  • Greek yogurt or apple sauce can be used in place of oil
    with box cake mixes.



Another great thing I

I love soup. But sodium…
have you read some of those cans? Yikes! I checked the healthy section of the
store and found this brand. I questioned if they could possibly be good, but at
around a dollar for one, I figured I should try it. OMG! So much better than I
could have guessed. In case your grocery store lacks these, or can not beat
this price, click here for an Amazon link to the good stuff!

flavors. All vegan friendly. Click around.)

    Soup is good, especially if its homemade.

    Give it a try!

    • J Lenni Dorner on May 31, 2013 at 4:37 AM

    Well yes, that would be the best kind. This is more for fast on-hand or easy-to-travel kind of soup.

    Hi, J,

    Nice to meet you.

    I was also shocked to see how much sodium is in canned soups… even the “healthy” one are loaded with sodium. This is why I only make my own.

    Glad to read there is an alternative,

    I also thought YOGA was for the fit and flexible. I have arthritis and stayed away from it, but perhaps I should give it a try.

    Thanks for joining the HOP!

    Thank you for stopping by!

    I was unaware of how much sodium I was actually consuming. “I don’t add salt to stuff… so I’m sure I’m okay.” Wrong. I spent a few months reading the labels. It’s uncanny.
