2022 Resolutions

We have all been going through a lot this year. This is why I felt the need to remind you to truly take care of your well being. Don’t pressure yourself too much with self inflicted and hard to achieve goals. Be kind to yourself, mindful of what you eat, exercise moderately, sleep well and create your own balance. Each and everyone of us is different, so please do whatever makes YOU feel good and grounded.And please, let’s all try to be grateful for who we are and what we have in our lives.

Let’s hear from you

A sneak peek on what we were discussing: While having coffee ☕️ together, we realized how much a break can be a real pause to breathe or can be added stress. Let’s take this as an opportunity to reflect on how we support each other as peers and colleagues.Are our gatherings helping us?Are they making us feel connected or disconnected?Are you feeling heard and supported after the break? Lighter or heavier?How would you modify that?Let’s hear from you 😃

11 breakfast ideas to go with your coffee

Many of you messaged me yesterday with questions about the safety of foods and meal ideas that don’t require a fridge (you might need gas though 🙈).Swipe right for 11 breakfast ideas 😋 to go with your coffee ☕ Some clarifications:- You can keep the eggs 🥚 out of the fridge (as long as they were never refrigerated)- You can use powdered milk or 200ml milk 🥛 or vegan milk to keep out of the fridge and use the whole quantity (so you won’t need to refrigerate the rest)- I haven’t included white cheeses not only because of the power outage also because they found severe levels of E.Coli (a bacteria that can cause food poisoning🥴) in Lebanese cheeses.

Due to the current situation in Lebanon and the rise in food poisoning.

.

I felt the urge to share the below safety measures during power outage:As the USDA notes, your refrigerator will keep food safe for up to 4 hours during a power outage. Keep the door closed as much as possible. Discard refrigerated perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and leftovers after 4 hours without power.A full freezer will hold a safe temperature for approximately 48 hours (24 hours if it is half full and the door remains closed). Discard ice cream if it contains many crystals. Source: foodsafety.gov

Pesto Sauce

I love pesto sauce but Parmesan not so much… So I have tried several vegan recipes and I found my favorite 😋
It happens to be healthy & nutritious 😉
I calculated the nutrients in a serving of 1/2 cup of sauce: it contains 250 calories, 14g proteins, 10g of carbs, 19g of fat of which 16g are unsaturated fats (good fats).
The recipe below yields 1 cup of sauce and is good for 2 meals 🍽️
In a food processor, blend:
– 100g fresh basil (large stems removed)
– 3 Tbsp pine nuts
– 2 Tbsp lemon juice
– 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast (if you like cheesy texture, you can add 1 more tbsp)
– Salt & pepper to taste (you can also add 2-3 garlic cloves)
Then, you add 1 tbsp at a time:
– 2.5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
– 4-6 Tbsp water (depending on the texture you like)
It takes max 10 minutes to prepare! Hope you will like it 😁
