YOUTH FIRST TODAY MEALS IN Monica's MINUTES OKTOBERFEST RED CABBAGE By Monica Sinclair Cabbage is definitely an acquired taste. You either hate it or you love it. For me, it depends on how it is cooked. However, any time I go to a German restaurant, I always get the red cabbage as a side. It's sweet and tart at the same time and is the perfect addition to any meal. So, of course, for our German feast this month, I knew I need- ed to find a recipe for it. Luckily it wasn't too hard to find a relatively easy one. If you aren't a fan of cabbage, I urge you to give this a try. It might just change your mind. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 3 tablespoons bacon drippings or canola oil • 1 small head red cabbage (about 1-1/2 pounds), shredded • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped • 1 cup water • 1/4 cup sugar • 3/4 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon pepper • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves • 1/4 cup white vinegar DIRECTIONS 1. In a Dutch oven, heat bacon drippings over medium heat. 2. Add cabbage and apples; cook and stir 2-3 minutes. 3. Stir in water, sugar, salt, pepper and cloves. 4. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 40 -45 minutes or until cabbage is tender, stirring occasion- ally. Stir in vinegar. Source: tasteof The importance of self-care and how to prioritize it By Emily Bernhardt Youth First Inc. Self-care is something that can look different for every person. There are peo- ple who like to cuddle up on the couch with a book, do a face mask, take a bub- ble bath, or even those who like to clean. There are so many ways to partake in self-care, and it is so important to make sure you are setting aside time to de- stress and have some "you time." A lot of people can acknowledge that self-care is important, but they may find it hard to find time to focus on themselves when their hectic schedule is constantly pulling them in different directions. Here are a couple of tips to help you prioritize making time for yourself. 1. Create a self-care plan. Write out a list of different self-care activities you enjoy and decide how much time you can devote to each activity. A fter you know how much time you need, start schedul- ing out time for self-care in your weekly schedule and stick to it! For instance, if you know that you would like to take a bubble bath for 30 minutes and you also know you have Fri- day evenings free, you can plan it out for Friday from 6 to 6:30. Once you have planned something out, treat it like you would all other important events and pri- oritize it, because it is just as important. 2. Say "no" more often. Another tip to help ensure there is enough time in your week to focus on yourself is to start saying no to other things more often. We live in a society that often offers too much of themselves to other people. Say no to babysitting the neighbor's kids if that means you will then have time for yourself that evening. At times it can feel selfish saying no to the requests of others, but it is a necessary skill to learn and will help you begin to prioritize your- self and your needs. 3. Re-evaluate your current sched- ule. Maybe your spouse or kids can help you with the daily household chores if they aren't already. There may even be things on your schedule that aren't essen- tial. If you find yourself looking through your schedule and finding tasks that don't actually have to be done, use that extra time for self-care activities instead. The important thing to remember is that you are just as important as the peo- ple around you, and you should treat yourself as well as you treat other peo- ple in your life. Without taking the time for self-care, we become more irritable, stressed, and less available for the peo- ple we love. In order to fill other people's cups, we must make sure our cups are filled. Even though it can feel like there is not enough time for self-care, there is. Sometimes, we just have to learn how to fit it in and prioritize it. Prioritize yourself today.
