Me and Kenzie at the Santa Parade..
Wow, what a great weekend I had with my family. I realized how health & wellness really impact my family based on my business and other activities. On Saturday I was so fortunate to bring Mackenzie down town to participate in the Santa Parade with the Daily News Boogie Team. Who knew it would be a 30 minute high energy workout, not me. When Jo asked me to join in I thought we would be standing and waving on a pretty float, o no...running and dancing behind the Run Club VW Bug!
Madie doing her jumping jacks!
Next it was time for Madie to pull out her own Yoga mat and 1lb free weights to do her workout. "Please put on the new workout video with the lady on the beach so I can do my class", her words exactly. So now mom & Madie are doing some Yoga poses, squats with free weights and jumping jacks. After the class it was time for a big glass of water.
Putting our first batch of Kale chips into the oven.
As you all know I am working very hard to clean up our meals and choose healthier alternatives for snacking so I purchased some Kale last week. Now I had heard from a fellow mom that they Kale chips tasted great and were easy to prepare so I put it to the test. Kenzie and I washed it and tore it into bit sized pieces, placed it onto the cookie sheet, drizzled the olive oil and put some sea salt on top. Oven turned to 350, just like the directions I found on Google. Alright, so far so good! Then my husband asks, are they suppose to smoke like that? Perhaps my drizzle was more of a pour, no worries open up all the windows, turn the chips over and 5 more minutes. Times up, pull them out, slide onto the plate and now the test begins..how do they taste? Well my friends we have a winner! The whole family, hubby included loved them...success!
The finished product.
