I believe THRIVE-ing and STRENGTH go hand in hand. You simply cannot thrive without being strong. And the converse is true- it’s really hard to be strong unless you are in a state of thrive (or on a journey to thrive).
It’s actually true. Anatomically speaking, if you break a bone, once it heals that area of the bone is stronger. The same is true for the brokenness in our life. Once you break, you will be stronger in that area of your life, you spirit, than you were before the hurt. I know that doesn’t make the hurt, the pain, any easier. But believe that you will come away stronger. Reflect on your life this week and look at how you have grown through times of brokenness. Find strength.
Sunday usually ends up being my day to rest and restore. That doesn’t mean I do nothing, it just means I try to take time for me, for my faith, and to s-l-o-w down. My Mondays that follow restful Sundays go so much better than ones that follow a hectic Sunday. Mondays are also my longest work day and so Monday night’s dinner needs to be quick AND refueling.
Today’s recipe is SIMPLE and NUTRITIOUS. It’s full of healthy fats, green veggies, and a few healthy starches (carbs aren’t ALL bad, they are necessary for life!) It only requires 4 main ingredients: asparagus, red onion, grass-fed ground beef, and rice. Cook, add your favorite spices, and you are done. BAM! Dinner in less than 20 minutes.
Start your rice first. Follow your directions on the package and don’t disturb the rice until it is cooked. It ensures you will have perfect rice every time.
While the rice is cooking, brown the grass-fed beef, add in the onions and asparagus. Cook until veggies are at the desired level of cooking. Add the spices that you want- I used garlic, basil, sea salt, and black pepper.
And that’s it. Serve the veggies and meat over the rice. Nourishing. Simple. Easy. And it makes great leftovers.
