Let’s Get Cooking – 2018 year end thoughts and tips

And we inch closer to the end of 2018 next week.  The week between Christmas and New Year’s always seems like a great time to reflect and review your year.

I don’t do the resolution thing.  I like to make a year plan with adjustments monthly.  For me it’s all about transformation.  I completed 12 new certification in my better health program.  I am now a diploma’d Vegan & Vegetarian Nutrition Consultant to compliment my Health & Wellness coaching.  I am moving to a vegan diet from vegetarian in 2019.  My last vestege is cheese-but I will be learning and creating vegan cheeses so I see no reason not to accomplish that goal.  I received five certification in fitness training as well.

So how about you?  Did you reach your goals for 2018?  Did you lose that extra weight, add in more physical activity, add mindfulness to your life?  Better health starts and ends with you and your choices.  I hope you reached your goals in 2018.

If you’d like to start again or continue your growth, check out my new year’s program https://kimgerhardt.com/event/new-year-new-you-transformation/.  Contact me for more info starting on 1/1/19.  Let’s get your transformation started.

Wishing you all a wonderful end to 2018 and a healthy and happy new year 2019.  Here’s to good health for us all!  Thank you for tuning in!  😉

PS  Here’s my vegan version of the traditional Hoppin John on New Year’s day!  Enjoy!

  1. Place the dried black eyed peas in a large sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and let boil 2 minutes.  Turn off the heat and let them sit for an hour, drain. In a large pot on medium heat heat the olive oil.  Add the carrots, onion, bay leaves and red pepper flakes if using.  Saute 3-4 minutes.  Add the drained black eyed peas, veggie broth, salt and pepper to taste and water to cover the peas, approximately 3 cups.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.  Test for seasoning after 30  minutes.  If you like a very firm pea, check at 45 minutes and remove from the heat, there will be some liquid in the pot.  I cook them 1 hour exactly and you get a mushier black eyed pea with very little liquid left  in the pot.  Taste for salt and pepper.  Add the cooked brown rice, greens and hot sauce if you like!  Enjoy!  Serves 4
