Memory Lane…1 year Anniversary of Sara B Consulting Blog

Can you believe it!?! It’s been one whole year since I created this blog. My hopes were that at least my family would look at it and appreciate the recipes, nutrition bites, and sunshine I share. I had no idea what other impact it would have. Today I have 38 official followers with many more people emailing and facebooking me on a daily basis with questions/comments about recipes and health. LOVE IT!
Some tell me how they are inspired by the blog…. it is actually them who inspire me.
I appreciate all who have tried to implement health into their lives and even more into their families’.

Today we are going to take a trip down memory lane and look at some of my favorite moments and recipes this year.

Vegetable Hash

Tonight’s dinner consisted of any vegetables I could get my hands on! I have to give compliments to my Uncle Jim because all the veggies and my giant gourd came from his farm in Oto, Iowa.

Vegetable Hash
from Clean Eating Magazine with of course a Sara touch
3/4 lb small new potatoes, left unpeeled, halved (not really sure how many 3/4lbs is…so I used about 4 cups sliced in half)
1 small acorn squash, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
3 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
olive oil cooking spray
4 tsp olive oil, divided
1/4 onion minced or 2 shallots
2 cups broccoli, shredded
1/2 C green pepper, red, yellow…whatever you have
Preheat oven to 425F. In bowl, lightly toss potatoes and squash with rosemary, salt, and pepper. Place on baking sheet misted with cooking spray. Drizzle 2 tsp olive oil over veggies and gently toss. Bake for 25 minutes or till potatoes are tender. Stir every 10 minutes.
Heat remaining 2 tsp oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. saute onions, broccoli, and bell peppers for 1 minute. Add potato-squash mixture and cook for 5 minutes or until heated.

I served it over eggs to add some protein to the meal.

J topped his with some of these colorful, sweet and hot peppers…all from Uncle Jim.
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good…
