Turkey Carcass Soup

The good thing about soup is you can use whatever you have on hand. No matter where you are you can make a good soup. After holidays most people have carcasses and bones full of meat left over from meals they have prepared. Why not put them to good use. Soup tastes great and warms anyone’s heart through their palate.

I used a turkey carcass. However lamb, beef, veal, and chicken, fish heads, or any other protein work as well. I boiled the carcass then simmered it for 1 hour. Add your favorite herbs like bay leaf, thyme, sage, or parsley.

Removed it from the pot, and removed all the meat that was left from it. Strain the broth, and set the meat and broth to the side.

While it’s boiling chop all the vegtables you want to add in. Chopping was to much work for me though so I used a food processor and pulsed the vegtables to the size I want. I’m making turkey barley soup so I wanted the vegtables small to medium dice. Use what you like such as onions, peppers, celery, carrots, garlic, or potatoes.

In a clean pot sauté your vegtables in olive oil and a little butter. Make the vegtables sweat and add meat and broth as soon as they begin to caramelize. Let everything simmer about 20 minutes. Then add your starch of pasta, rice, or grains.

After you cook your starch in the soup another 8 to 10 minutes. Chop up some fresh herbs of parsley, or scallion. Add them to the soup stir and your done. Quick and easy. The food processor makes things easier to prepare. It also cuts down your prep time.

I Am The Messenger

I rejoice through torment

Vibrations of the echoes of my emotions expand into the atmosphere

I am love’s will the adversary of fear

My thoughts heal in my blood as living water

I cry in peace and arise in death

I laugh for pain and forgive for love

I fly feel my invisibility breeze by

My crimson shows when your eyes close

I can not be ignored the universe calls my name

My strength soars shattering my minds walls

They told me I can’t but I triumphant

Conquering my mind makes me shine

My touch expands liberty ringing it’s melody everywhere

I encumber joy to demand

Reprimanding washes my gratitude

My smile is my shelters eyes

I stand wallow in commitment

Discipline strengthens my stride

Breath and you will know that life is hallow infinite time

Stop Pull Up Bar Door Frame Damage

Pull up bars are great for at home workouts. However they can damage your decor over time. Don’t let your pull up bar damage your door frame.

You can stop damage from happening in advance with some easy supplies at home. I had to learn the hard way but you don’t have too.

All you need are a pair of hand towels, and some mailing tape. Wrap each hand towel around the end of each side. Then wrap tape over it. The cushion will protect the paint and wood frame of your door over time. Luckily my apartment is being repainted. This simple task will help you from having to repaint or replace door frames later. The extra cushion will distribute your weight properly on your door frame as you workout. You can workout stress free of wrecking your home.

Stranger Things Motivate

Words begin

Love suceeds into happiness

I am & I can

Watch me for retroprcity

Heart is never broken it strengthens

As I learn I don’t follow- I absorb.

Chaos is my playground and my peace You be or you decrease

The universe is our domain

Expand boundaries let your energy shine

You only live once don’t let the world decide

Blackened Salmon Kale Ceasar Salad

After a good workout, everyone wants to eat something healthy. No one wants to stand up and cook for hours. Making this salad took 20 minutes. If you want homemade croutons add about five more minutes.

The salmon was quick and easy to sauté, in the same pan with the asparagus. A fresh egg can be boiled while you prepare your protein and asparagus. Chop your veggies while you cook everything. Toss you favorite cheese with your favorite greens. In this salad I used kale, white cheddar, and ceasar dressing. Something fast can be healthy and taste good.

Try adding different vegtables. Another night I used green beans instead of asparagus. It also tastes great adding some homemade croutons.

Cucumber Pear Juice

This juice is refreshing, and revitalizing. All these amazing fruits and vegtables are a refreshing way to get you going. The fun thing about juicing is you can add whatever you like.

The cucumber has vitamin K, C, B5, magnesium, manganese, and potassium. Cucumber is anti-inflammatory, energy producing, and it helps build bones, and your heart. So I decided to kick it up a notch with pears, celery, lemon, and honey.

Pears are great for burning stomach fat for that six pack ab. They are high in fiber, and help fight infection. This fruit is amazing. Pears help fight cancer, diabetes, gout, arthritis, and much more.

Celery is a refreshing root vegtable. It is a good source of vitamin A, C, B2, B6, copper, manganese, molybdenum, calcium, and potassium. This crisp vegtable is high in antioxidants as well.

Lemon has vitamin C, B6, iron, folate, magnesium, riboflavin, thiamine, and potassium. It is also high in fiber. Thus fruit cleanses your palate, while building healthy white blood cells.

Honey is a class of its own. This amazing sweetness can be an energy booster, or mood stabilizer for rem sleep. It’s also a antibiotic so it helps you fight infections. Great for your skin, hair, bones, and blood. I use raw honey for its super healthy powers.
