Cooking: Green for Spring

You Are Your Only Limit.
Motivation for Monday

I chose Kiwi & Peas as the fruit and vegetable for March. Between St Patrick's Day & the First Day of Spring, March is the month for green.

Kiwi is fairly new to me so I am looking forward to experimenting with it. I have tasted it and I like the taste raw now I gotta find out what it tastes like cooked.

Health Benefits Of Kiwi.    #health #benefits #nutrition #vitamins
More vitamin C than a orange of the same size!
It Strengthens bones very important at my age!
Reduces bad fat's! That sounds like a fruit I can get behind!

I have only two recipe's I am determined to try out: Kiwi Muffins and this month I want to try a chia pudding so I'm going to make Kiwi Chia Pudding

Pea's please. I do like my peas rather they are fresh, canned or frozen but I have never mixed them with anything else so I want to do that this month.

Regulates Blood Sugar ... Yes! diabetics take note
Strengthens bones, definitely a plus!
All kinds of good for the stomach & digestive track, that's great news too!

I have only chosen two recipes for these lovelies: Green Pea Soup and  Italian Peas.

I am still feeling my way with this cooking thing and I will probably make other recipe's throughout the month but I am feeling a little overwhelmed with three or four recipe's per ingredient so I am reducing them to two.

One other thing I will be using frozen peas just because I do like peas and I expect finding fresh may be difficult.

There are also more recipes in Cooking: Peas and Cooking: Kiwi for you to explore if my choices don't appeal.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
