Fit Friday: 5 Health Benefits of Drinking Water

Starbucks. Coke.  Diet Coke. Cherry Zero.  Milk.  Juices.  Green Smoothis. Kefir. So many liquids to drink out there – and I’ve only named a few.  But, what about the one thing that is free and good (at least in our ountry in most cities in America)? My health fast in the month of March is […]

Fit Friday Links

Welcome to Friday. Its been a difficult week to do anything in the way of exercise because all I want to do is go outside and walk – but that is hard when the wind is blowing, you have two under 17m and the air is arctic (compared to Florida sunshine and warmth). So this […]

Raw Detox Recap

Going on a two week vacation right after New Year’s doesn’t really help with keeping all those resolutions.  5 people in a hotel room doesn’t leave much room for exercising but I enjoyed the many days in the Florida sunshine (and heat).  But, I had returned with the scale being up 6 pounds (including birthday […]

Fruit and Bran make a wonderful muffin

Moist, healthy, filling, fruit: what more could you want in a morning muffin? I have tons of recipes that I’ve torn out of magazines over the years and I’m trying to actually cook through them.  Now that I have someone to cook for it makes it a little easier (and I always need ideas)! These […]

Much & Link Love: November 21 edition

Vacation over: Thanksgiving ahead. 1. Vacation was great: hiking, eating, sleeping, photoging, seeing friends. Beautiful weather. 2. Parents come in town tomorrow. 3. I’ve decided not to do the half on Thursday. That would take out 9 hours of what my parents and I could do together (drive, run, drive), so we will find stuff […]

Do Hard Things

This post actually has nothing to do with the Harris brothers’ book by the same title. But, as I was thinking of titles for this blog, that is what came to mind. Others that came to mind: Things I Learned from Randy Stinson, Spiritual Laziness, What I Don’t Like To Do, but Need To. The […]

Much & Link Love (Nov 1) and November!

Well, thought I might tie these two posts together since November 1 falls on a Monday. 1. Great weekend: the ocean, 31 miles, mahi mahi tacos, and a Gator win! 2. Getting organized and down-sizing. 3. Love seeing old friends: they are rare! 4. Love talking about what God is doing in my life. 5. […]

Honey Granola

Granola is probably the thing I make most in my kitchen (save cookies and egg white sandwiches). I always like trying new recipes. This one is a winner. I started with a recipe from Joy of Baking and tweaked it. Turned out great. 3 cups oats 1/2 cup whole raw almonds (I buy in the […]

Power Breakfast (or lunch or dinner)

My friend, Cynthia, gave me this idea.  Her and her husband would eat this as a powerful way to fuel in the morning.  I just ate some for a quick dinner before heading to church – after a 4 mile jaunt. I’ve never been one for cottage cheese, that’s my mother.  But, I can eat […]

Lentil, Swiss Chard, and Chicken Soup

Most people know that I love soup. It was probably in the 90s today and I made soup. I had my first bowl of this over a small organic sweet potato (Sarah Frankel bday girl style, just for you babe)! It was very yummy. Quality of pictures is poor because my batteries were going dear […]
