Remember to breathe…

What do you do to de-stress? I like to practice yoga.  Time on the yoga mat can be thought of as a gift. It is time away from reality. How often in your day do you get to be in a quiet room and just breathe?    Probably not that often, so when you devote the…

Winding roads…

Wouldn’t it be nice if the road of life was one big open highway?  Just a long, straight expanse of new pavement as far as the eye could see.  No twists, no turns, no detours.  Approaching traffic or bumps in the road could be seen with plenty of time to react and adjust.  I sometimes…

Chicken Tikka Masala…

I know, I know…I’m hung up on the garam masala and Indian spice flavors lately, but they are pretty yummy. Here is a dish that most certainly satisfies the desire for comfort food. Usually Chicken Tikka Masala is made with heavy cream and butter, but this version is a bit lighter with Greek yogurt and…

The body that heals itself…

Just a little food for thought on a Monday morning… Isn’t it an amazing thing that the human body has the innate, natural ability to heal itself?  This means that the secrets to health and wellness lie not in bandaids and gimmicks or chemicals and elixirs, but within the natural function of the human body. …

More quinoa…

Well I’d say it’s about time for a new recipe post.  I apologize for the delay, but things are getting busier around here which is all anyone can hope for with a new business right?? So anywho, I’ll just jump right in to it.  I gave this recipe a try yesterday and I’m looking forward to…

Go green…and leafy…

Is it just me or are food product advertisements taking over the world!? Well those and pharmaceutical ads…but that is a story for another day. Everywhere I look I see an ad for some colorfully packaged provision boasting an above average nutrition content, claiming weight loss benefits, or making promises about various other health topics. …

Nuts for health…!

Jonesin’ for a snack? Instead of reaching for the box of processed crackers, the bag of greasy potato chips, or the stash of sweets try munching on some mixed nuts.  Make your own trail mix in the bulk section of the grocery store and just keep a jar of it on hand.  This just happens…

Bruschetta Chicken, Umm Yes…

So I did a bit of recipe experimentation today. I had Bruschetta at a resturant recently and was reminded of how yummy it was.  I also loves me some grilled chicken, so I wanted to try putting those two together.  In the end I was pretty happy with the results.  Pull out your grill and checkered…

Pico with peppers…

Make your own salsa!!  Sharpen your knife skills (pun intended) and do some chopping with this recipe. Pico de Gallo (pronounced peeko day guy-o)  salsa is a nice, fresh treat in the summer months.  Again, it has that cilantro/lime combo that I love so much. Go ahead, give it a try.  You know you want…
