This is 49.
For the first time in my life, I feel like I am “all the things” that I dreamt of being. Well, maybe not *all* but certainly I think this season of my life will make the highlight reel.
  • I’m strong
  • Genuinely happy
  • Thriving
  • Loving
  • Capable
 
It took many, many months of feeling out and getting used to my new rhythm and season of life.
It’s like learning a new song that you like.
After a few listens, you start pick up the catchy bits of the lyrics.
A few more times, you can sing along with the chorus and, if you’re like me, garble some of the verses (“Money for nothin’ and chips for free”).
One day, you find yourself walking in to the beat, your steps in sync with the drum beat or bass rhythm.
Hello, 49….I like your groove.
 
Have you been in your own groove lately or out of tune? I would love to know! ♪

For those a little disconnected from that inner rhythm, when is the last time you turned on your favorite song?

The one that you cannot help yourself but move along and sing to the second it comes on!

I encourage you to play a song this week that sparks that irresistible joy and to give yourself the chance to dance – yes, I said dance!

The opportunity and small gift to yourself to move your body, dance and let go, even for just one song.

This is a wonderful small challenge to reconnect this week!

Recipe of the Week:

Monkey Bread in The Microwave

Monkey bread is something I used to always make my kids as a treat.

It took time to prepare, especially when making the dough from scratch and was doused in the most delicious cinnamon sugar mixture. I’d like to say we all have time to do that, but the reality is, we don’t!

Instead, learn how to make this quick microwave monkey bread recipe that is done in under 10 minutes.

Yes, really!

Jaden’s Weekly Tip:

How to stop bananas from ripening too fast:

Speaking of monkeys – let’s talk bananas!

 
There are a few simple ways to avoid your bananas from ripening too fast!

1. Keep them in a bundle and away from other fruits, preferably hanging up!

2. Wrap the stem  of the bunch with plastic wrap. Since bananas release ethylene gas through their stems which leads to ripening, wrapping them will help minimize this.

 
How do you store your bananas? Or do you have any banana hacks to share? Let us know in the Happy and Healthy Facebook Group!
 
Have a great week, get grooving, make some monkey bread, have fun and see you Friday!
 
With love,
 
Jaden
