Let’s dive in…but first I must clear the air right out of the gate. I am not paid to endorse any … Read More

CHICKEN AND LENTIL SOUP

#WednesdaysWeCook, Dinner Recipes, Recipes

Even in Florida, we love to have relatively cooler weather and a warm, comforting meal. That means when the thermometer drops below 75 degrees, I bring out the soup pot. And, what better way to get through midweek than with a hot bowl of soup, loaded with nutrition? If you haven’t added lentils to your … Read More

FITTING OUT TO GET HEALTHY

#MotivationalMonday, Healthy You

I am occasionally met with questions and sometimes even challenged about my healthy lifestyle. Even friends and family sometimes poke at my intent for engaging in my routine cleanses or self-led reboot program and subsequent green eating routine.

STRONG ARMS = STRONG RUNNER!

#FitnessFriday

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE!

#MotivationalMonday

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE Jokes, anecdotes, getting to know each other…these are the trademarks of a pacing event.

READING, WRITING, AND COOKING

#WednesdaysWeCook

READING, WRITING, and COOKING Cooking with your child is as essential as teaching him to read or to be fiscally smart. Yet rarely does a parent say, “I really need to start teaching my 8 year old son how to cook?!?!?!” …Not many!  Think about it this way, when you spend time with your children in at … Read More

LOOKING FOR KELLY SLATER!

#ThirstyThursday

Surfers, Juice, and Selfies Today, I met George Greenough. It was a good day. It might have been even better had Kelly Slater been there too! If you’re a surfer, you are already thinking I got autographs and selfies. And I did get a selfie…kind of, only these two world famous surfers weren’t there! Instead, … Read More
