The New Year is here, yet again, and I say "bring it on"!!! I am super psyched about what doors could potentially be opened this year for you, for me - for everyone! To be 40 and finally find "what I want to be when I grow up" has been amazing and I'm jumping in with both feet. Are you feeling the same way!?! I truly hope so! Here's to the New Year and endless possibilities...
Oh, and don't forget your collard greens and black-eyed peas! Who couldn't use some good luck and additional money in the New Year? Not only that, but it's good for your health! Collards are packed with nutrition and provide anticancer properties. They offer an excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, chlorophyll and manganese. Collard greens are also a very good source of fiber and several minerals, including iron, copper and calcium. And those black-eyed peas? Like many beans, they are low in fat and high in quality protein and fiber. Here's a simple recipe to enjoy this New Year's Eve or Day - just switch to vegetable broth and omit the smoked ham to make this vegetarian. Feel free to play around with the measurements - some prefer more beans or more collards. Have fun with it!
Serve this with some corn bread and you've got a nice filling meal to start the New Year out right!
Wishing you and yours all the best in this New Year!!!
