Try It Tuesday – Roasted Beets

I have been craving beets lately – I love beets! I am usually too lazy to do much of anything with them, but this weekend while grocery shopping with my husband, I was inspired to buy a couple and give them a shot – not only did I want beets, but I wanted to try something new, and add some skills to my arsenal – nothing wrong with that, right?! 😉

LUCKILY I quickly caught on to the fact I was gonna need gloves to handle these babes, or deal with some stained hands!

So I kept it simple, I kept them whole, wrapped them in foil, and baked for about an hour, give or take. Once they cooled, I sliced them – and they were perfectly delicious!

Note: I scrubbed them super clean and just kept the skin on – more nutrients and less of a hassle, but you can always peel them.

That was easy and SO tasty – I gotta do that more often! Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Do you like beets?

Try It Tuesday – Compliment a Stranger

Have you ever complimented a perfect stranger?

I never used to, but more and more, I find myself just blurting out “I love your shirt” or something else. Usually impulsively which for me, adds to the feeling associated with it. Because have you ever noticed how someone smiles and lights up when complimented?!

I think the world could use more complimentary offerings and less critical ones – what say you?

Try It Tuesday – Volunteer

Did you know that volunteering is one of the best things you can do? It lifts your mood, puts things into perspective, lifts the spirits of those you help (elderly, the dogs at the shelter, etc), fosters a community feeling, and so many other things?

I know what you are thinking — we are all so busy, where do we find the time to volunteer? And I am guilty too – I don’t give back to the community enough. I have been hyper focused on building my business to give myself a little breathing room and financial relief, but I have also wanted to do more for the community, and so I think it’s time to find the balance and allot some time to GIVE BACK.

How about you? Do you volunteer? Do you want to? What would be your ideal volunteer job?
