Happy second week of 2021! It’s only the third and we’re heading into the second week of the new year. The days are going to fly by! This supposedly “long” weekend of 2021 zoomed so fast. I got to hang out with friends I haven’t seen in a while due to the pandemic. It was interesting that the friends I saw this weekend all had a running theme of self-love. I believe it was a sign for me to incorporate more self-love into my life. That’s what I intend to do this week.
Here’s a powerful article I found on self-love: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-mindful-self-express/201706/8-powerful-steps-self-love. The saying goes, you can’t love others if you don’t love yourself first. Give yourself A LOT of love! You deserve it!
Ethnic foods are simply wonderful. Whenever I’m introduced to a new cultural food, I get super excited. Being from Hawai’i, we’re so fortunate to be blessed with a melting pot of different ethnic foods. This week, I’ll be sharing my love for Indian food, specifically curry (featured image). Indian food is on my top five fave list. I could eat this every day! Plus, the benefits of the spices that make these delicious curries are so healthy for us.
I found this article online that shares the 15 Indian spices and their health benefits: https://www.boldsky.com/health/nutrition/indian-spices-and-their-health-benefits-132215.html
I’ve had the pleasure of eating Indian food in both Hawai’i and in Japan. The featured image is a lamb curry dish I ate in Tōkyō a few years ago. Believe it or not, there are a lot of hole-in-the-wall Indian joints in Japan. This place was really good. It tasted like the curry I’ve eaten in Hawai’i. Can never go wrong with Indian food. I wish we had more Indian spots here.
Have an extraordinary new full week of 2021. Until next week…
