A Nudge for Change: A lesson from my kitchen
My friends eat organic, all natural food, without a lot of oil or frying and they have been after me to eat more like them. So tonight I thought I would try to do it their way…I put chicken tenders (unbreaded) in the oven about 20 minutes after I put in the baked potatoes, and put green beans on the stove on low. I was so sure of myself and that my friend would like my meal….
But what I got was not what I expected:
The tenders were dried out because I had left them on just a little longer since they weren’t crispy like they were when I cooked them in the toaster oven (on the oven setting).
The funny looking “Green Beans” turned out to be some sort of organic peas, still in the pod, and I forgot to turn them up the last 20 minutes so they were not done, the potatoes needed at least 30 minutes more of cooking, after everything else was done, because I didn’t set the temp. high enough
It All Worked Out
In my defense:
A Lesson From a Simple Nudge:
Keep Nudging Just a Little
It is amazing at how little things can seep in and start to Nudge you in another direction and they just keep pushing, a little bit more as time goes by and before long, you are into a totally different way of doing things without even realizing it.
It begs the question to be asked: “How many times have I been given a Nudge, just a little, here and there, till I changed something about myself and didn’t know it?”
Then you have to ask “How many times have given someone a Nudge, just a little, here and there till I got them to change and/or do what I wanted?”
After some thought on this I realized that when you get a “no” answer or hit a “wall” you shouldn’t write that person off or give up. Just keep giving them a Nudge, just a little, more and more, each time and who knows? Maybe, before long, you will be able to look back and see where some changes have been made and caused other things to happen…
Just like what the modern technology of the microwave did to me.
By The Way:
If it had been up to me I would have sliced the taters and put them and the chicken in a pan to simmer in margarine, garlic and 21 solute spice mix til nice and tender, thrown canned green beans into a bowl and nuked them and eaten a satisfying meal.
What can I say? My Mama didn’t call me a “grocery store junky” for nothing and this meat loving, pre-prepared and pre-packaged, microwave loving, modern day girl, has got a lot of re-learning to do. Because if I know my friends, they are gonna keep giving me a nudge, just a little, every day till they see some changes in me!
