In the United States today is 4th of July or Independence Day it is the anniversary of the signing of the declaration of Independence from England and the tyranny of living under a monarch ...and well those who know their history on both sides know the rest of the bloody store of a bloody war and nastiness that ensued
Now here in the US Independence Day is celebrated with picnics parades tons of flags and lots and lots of Fireworks
This year I suggest that independence Day be treated similar to New Years make a fresh start declare your independence from something
There are many things we all have that are toxic in our lives be it behaviors like smoking and drinking to eating too much meat or not exercising enough not eating enough good foods or using too much energy.
Instead of using the gas lawnmower let the lawn grow a little longer or dig it up and plant some vegetables or just mow it later
Take a walk why waste gas going to the gym or where ever go walking
Turn off the TV and computer and have an energy free day or two with the kids once they get outside and playing around they will have fun and not notice that they are not being entertain but are doing the entertaining
if you must buy something buy some new light bulbs The LED ones are expensive but pretty nifty I was able to get one I like them more than the CFLs so I think those will replace any bulbs we have
eat at home so many people go out and now so many can't afford it over the years I have made recipes of things that we loved to eat at restaurants that contain few ingredients and if I the worlds most pathetic cook can make them anyone can
we make oven breaded chicken tenders for the kids
crush up corn flakes add into it some spices of your choice I like to use Parmesan cheese garlic powder black pepper use a scrambled egg in a bowl to dip the chicken chunks in and then bake on a greased baking sheet till done
and those are chicken chunks I also have used this for breading fish I bet lots more people can come up with better ideas than I can. Play around with it food is a fun toy and if release some fears about it you will come up with something great OR you will have a very funny story about the worlds worse attempt to make _______
so declare your Independence from something and as my mom used to say
get off your ass and do it!!
