Taste Of Thursday

...can you smell the weekend ahead?

Taking a little "offshore" break and for the first time all week did not make a virtual bee-line for the VOR, Vendee or any sailing news. Instead, felt a little tribute to my other love that is wrapped up in SailTrim.Org.

Reading through a few fav "healthy-fit" online magazines and felt these clips were fitting for my sailing peeps:

A yummy recipe for next week's holiday that supports the "one design" program:

Healthy Harvest Stuffing (Whole Living)
  • 1 pound whole-wheat Italian bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium celery stalk with leaves, chopped fine (about 1/2 cup)
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed, and caps chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley leaves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, minced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (you may not need to use it all)
  • Olive-oil spray (optional)
For Full Cooking Instructions

Consider a few minutes for yourself tomorrow morning and giving this AM stretch routine a try:

"It's often hard to find the inspiration to get out of your nice, comfortable bed when you're still so tired. But according to Kundalini yoga, a built-in supply of energy lies dormant at the root of the spine, like a bulb that rests underground, waiting for a cue to bloom. By accessing this vitality, you'll have the charge you need to fire up your day -- without having to resort to a double latte." ~ Kate Hanley
