Swiss chard dinner and time audit
One of my farmers market item was Swiss Chard. Tonight for dinner I made the simplest pasta dish ever, swiss chard with navy beans over brown rice angel hair.
I cut the stems off the leaves,
and then chopped the stems, sauted in a bit of olive oil with chopped green onions and garlic and spiked with red pepper flakes.
When the stems were slightly cooked, i added the leaves and let them wilt for a while,
Finally added the navy beans and served it over some brown rice angel hair.
Topped with some more red pepper flakes and nutritional yeast this was one simple and clean dish for a busy weekday dinner.
I loved the fact that unlike spinach, chard maintains some crunch even when cooked.
Summer virtual retreat project:
This week’s project in totality focuses on the importance of time and productivity. I can spend hours reading tips on time management and productivity. The weeklong project is to audit your time which will help you in knowing the most productive periods of your day, time you spend relaxing or watching TV, amount of time you spend on blog related activities etc. I am monitoring each and every hour right on an excel sheet and hope this helps me in being more targeted with my time. I know I can ponder (read waste) too much time on one thing.
Workout: A 2 mile run outside, non stop at 13:20 pace. Loved it, although, after the run I thought my face was going to explode,I was so red 🙂
