Today at 11:23 AM pacific time, I turn twenty-seven years old!

I’m over the meadow and through the woods, that’s for sure. Sign me up for water aerobics, I’ve got joints to preserve! Twenty-seven spells aaaahdult in at least ten languages and I’d like to say 27 buys me some wisdom but this aaaahdult still feels 15.

In my ripe state, there are little things I remind myself all the time. Lessons learned that I get to re-learn quarterly until they hopefully stick.

Here are some oldies but goodies:

Trust yourself. Embrace vulnerability. Seek beauty…every day. Stand tall and stand your ground. Utilize your resources. You don’t get what you don’t ask for. Harrison Ford was a hunk when he was 27. Eat fiber.

It would be appropriate to show you something dripping with chocolate and peanut butter today but I have something that suits my fancy all the same. It’s a shaved Brussels sprouts salad with all sorts of goodies like blueberries, apple, walnuts, avocado and a homemade dressing.

Tools I Used to Prepare this Recipe:


While I typically don’t use the terms, “addicting” and “salad” in the same sentence, this salad was addicting. I et it dead. If you have never shaved Brussels sprouts and made a salad out of them, I definitely recommend it!

Happy Belated Birthday! I'd give anything to be 27 again. *sigh* Do you think eating brussel sprouts will make me feel like I'm 27 again? Guess there's only one way to find out, huh? :-)

Happy Birthday Julia! I love brussel sprouts & the idea of a shaved brussel sprouts salad sounds fantastic. That's a very healthy way of celebrating your birthday but I do hope you indulge in a bit of chocolate and peanut butter too. Have a great birthday, my friend!

Happy Birthday, Julia! I roast brussel sprouts all the time but have never shaved and used them as the main salad greens. What a brilliant idea! Must try soon ;). Hope you have a blessed day!
