Today’s Youth and How They Worship God

January 30, 2011 at 2:17 PM (Religion)

The People's ChurchThe Church I go to (The People’s Church) is an interdenominational Church. Over 100 years ago, four religions came together to create this experiment in religion. A place of worship that would welcome everyone. Regardless of religious background. If you wished to worship God, learn the words of Christ, explore Christianity, you are welcome here. This is what drew me to this Church in the first place.

No Excuses

January 25, 2011 at 2:56 PM (Goals, Motivation, Nutrition)

Most of my life I have made excuses. Okay, my entire life I have made excuses. Excuses for why I eat bad. Excuses for why I don’t exercise. Excuses for why I don’t finish things I start. Excuses, not reasons. They are just that, excuses.

Pork Loin with Mushrooms

January 25, 2011 at 1:40 AM (Nutrition, Recipes)

Tonight’s meal was quite good. I had a thought in mind and it turned out quite well.

Ingredients:

4 medium boneless pork loin chops, lean

1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil

1/4 cup warm water

2 8-oz packages sliced mushrooms

6 oz white onion, thinly sliced

3 cloves garlic, finely minced or chopped

2 tbsp your choice meat rub

1 tsp Olive oil

1/3 cup organic brown rice flour

1 tbsp ground flax

First, rub down the chops with the olive oil, then sprinkle the meat rub. For tonight’s recipe I used a mesquite garlic rub. Coat each side well then put on a plate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Heat 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame oil in a skillet, heat  on high for a few seconds. Add in the onions and minced garlic, stir together allowing the onions to soften.  Add the sliced mushrooms and 1/4 cup warm water, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until mushrooms and onions are tender. Once they are done, remove from pan, set aside in a bowl.

Take the chops from the fridge. In a shallow dish, mix the rice flour and the ground flax. The flax is optional, but it adds a nutty flavour to the mixture, as well as added fiber.  Coat each chop in the rice flour. There should be enough sesame oil still in the pan, if not add a teaspoon more and heat it up. Add the loin chops and cook on medium, turning each chop every few minutes until each side is nice and brown and the pork is cooked thoroughly. Once they are done, pour the cooked onions and mushrooms over the chops evenly, continue to cook on medium until the mushrooms and onions are nice and hot.

Serve with your choice of veggies on the side.  Tonight we had salads with pine nuts and diced cucumbers and homemade vinaigrette dressing.

Spicy Chicken and Rice

January 7, 2011 at 8:17 PM (Nutrition, Recipes)

My recipes tend to be a little of this, a little of that, so putting it into ounces and teaspoons is not always accurate, however, I will be as accurate as I possibly can.

I needed something quick and easy, both to cook and to eat, since tonight is Raid night in WoW with hubby, so we’ll be eating at our desks. LOL. I’m sure we’re not the only couple in America who do this.

New Year, New Goals

January 3, 2011 at 2:57 PM (Exercise, Goals, LiveFit, Motivation)

Another year has passed, a new one begun. Not just a new year, but a new decade.  What does this mean for you? For me it means a new beginning. A time of renewal. A time to make things new again.  So I changed the appearance of my blog, let’s hope it sticks and doesn’t glitch the way it did when I first created my wordpress blog.
