Mental Wellness Activities to Increase Peaceful Mindset

Did you know that watching riots & negative news repeatedly can have a negative impact on your mental wellness? Take a break and go sit in nature. It works! Create more mental wellness activities that help you balance everything that is going on around you.

A mental wellness activity that promotes inner peace and mental wellness is to get away from the daily stress and spend time in nature. The fresh air, natural sounds, and sights, and refreshing smells can help to reduce anxiety and encourage the strengthening of inner peace and balance. Found a great article about it:

Food Suggestions:

What you eat is also important as a model.

Instead of restricting yourself from food or focusing on what you cannot eat. Let’s explore food. Let’s celebrate the various spices, cheeses, vegetables, meats, and fruits from all over the world. My favorite place to shop for food is the farmers market. I can count on one thing, FRESH!

As a chef, I would love to hear from you. What recipes would you like more of ?

This week we are eating

Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese (Chicken or Steak)

 Total Time: 30 mins

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 large onion, thinly sliced

2 bell pepper, thinly sliced

vegetable oil

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 lb. sirloin streak or chicken breast,

sliced against the grain

8 slices white sandwich bread

1/4 c. mayonnaise

1/2 lb. sliced provolone

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium, heat oil. Add onion and bell peppers and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are beginning to soften. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan and add the sirloin steak in an even layer on the other side. Season all over with salt and pepper. Let it cook, without stirring, until the bottom browns and develops a nice seared crust, about 1-2 minutes. Stir into the vegetables and continue cooking until the steak is cooked through and browned all over.
  2. Spread mayonnaise on one slice of bread. Top the dry side of the bread (the mayo will be on the outside) with steak and vegetable mixture and a slice of provolone. Top with another slice of bread and spread mayonnaise on the top. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium. Working in batches, cook sandwiches until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Enjoy!
