Asian Stir Fry Moments

Eating healthy is a very good way to live your moments. Many of the Asian countries such as Korea, Japan, India, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam eat healthy nutritional food. After a visit to Thailand a few years ago I got inspired to prepare Asian meals a lot. My favorite? A vegetable stir fry.

ADRIANNA'S  STIR FRY (made moments ago)

Boil one cup of Oriental style noodles (Bahn Pho). Drain the water and than add a handful of fresh chopped broccoli, orange peppers, and some peas. Stir in about 1 cup of coconut milk to the mixture and a tablespoon of green curry paste and allow the entire mixture to cook for a few minutes.

Place your stir fry in a bowl and add a dash of cinnamon. (The spice cinnamon is known to help prevent diabetes).

Enjoy your stir fry with a cup of green or oolong tea.

Happy Asian Stir Fry Moments!

Focus on ONE thing at a time (it will help you succeed)

One of the greatest things we can do to serve others is to share advice that can help them along their life journey. Life is full of challenges and it isn't always easy but it helps when we can Focus on ONE thing at a time.

Last year while spending time in one of a kind LOS ANGELES I received this very advice from two professors who have really lived life to the fullest. They gave astonishing examples of how  Focusing on ONE thing at a time works for us rather than against us. Success will come when we focus our minds on that one thing we wish to accomplish. 

I've had hundreds of moments pass me by filled with exhaustion because I'm just overwhelmed with multi tasking and can't keep up. Yes life has challenges and ups and down but it's much more peaceful to Focus on one thing at a time. The results are priceless.

Fill your moments with Focusing on ONE thing at a time!

Irish Moments (St. Patricks Day)

It's Saint Patricks Day and today I got up early to make a hearty cabbage and pea soup for my loved ones. Wherever you are today I hope your "Irish" moments bring you a pot of gold filled with blessings!

Cabbage Soup

Slice up lots of red and green cabbage. Place the cabbage in a pot of filtered water (about 4 cups). Cut up three potatoes and put them in the pot with the cabbage. Boil until cabbage and potatoes are soft and tender. Add more water if needed or some pre made vegetable broth. Place one cup of peas into the soup pot and any spices you might like.

Enjoy this delicious and healthy soup and may it bring you the luck of the Irish.

Bread Moments

                                                        Hand formed artisan bread made with olives.

Bread which comes in many forms is one of the oldest foods of the world. From flatbreads
to yeasted breads most countries have some sort of bread in their diet (despite the gluten free craze that has hit the Untied States).

I've been working for an artisan organic bread company for three years now and am often referred to as "the bread lady." There's northing wrong with eating bread on a daily basis. The French eats their baguettes and croissants, in India naan bread is a staple, pita bread is enjoyed by those living in Middle Eastern counties and eating tortilla's is a tradition in Central America and Mexico. From flatbreads to yeasted breads, there's plenty of people across the globe enjoying their daily bread and "bread moments."

                      Grilled bread can be topped with everything from avocado's to tomatoes to sardines
