A Message from Your Balanced Habits™ Team
Happy summer 2021! Is there anyone who doesn’t love the summer months that offer warm days and evenings that tend to function with a more relaxed pace? But, don’t let this relaxed pace knock you off your positive path toward your goals. You might have to change your routine up, but definitely don’t stop!
Spend just one minute each day to envision you, being confident, self-possessed, and in control of your own decisions as they relate to your health and wellness. Work on loving yourself, your body and your actions to live a more balanced and healthy life each day by creating a personal positive mantra than you can repeat over –n- over about why you deserve to live the life you want for yourself.
Grab it and enjoy it!
This month, as crazy as it sounds, begin planning your for your fall through winter kitchen months. When produce is at its least expensive and plentiful, buy it, prep it and flash freeze it. Make tomato sauce out of the bounty of tomatoes likely popping up in your garden. Grate up zucchini to add to your sauce when you heat it up in a few months. Take advantage of everything summer brings. While you have some free time, do “homey” things that will pay off when your time is at a premium and you need a quick solution. You’ve got this!

Balanced Habits™ Recipe of the Month
Housemade Tomato Sauce
Taste test as you go. Go easy with the seasonings to adjust UP. It’s much easier to add than take away.
Cook chopped onions, garlic in extra virgin olive oil until tender.
Add chopped tomatoes. Cook covered, until soft.
Use an immersion blender, masher or food strainer to slightly blend the ingredients
Cook sauce down until a consistency that you favor.
During this time you can add kosher salt, fresh black pepper, your choice of sweetener (sugar, Splenda, Truvia, Stevia…etc.), finely diced fresh basil, oregano, and if you like, rosemary. Taste test it and adjust as needed.
Once you have completely cooled the sauce, portion it into clean glass jars. Leave at least 2” from the lid to allow for expansion! When you’re sure the jar is at room temp you can freeze them and pull one out as you need it to get you through the fall-winter months to come.
