Gratitude Linkup - Week of 6/29/14

One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I'm grateful for. There have been times when I've gotten stuck in negativity that I've done a quick gratitude list (in my head or with another) and started on the path of releasing that negativity. Gratitude lists help me to remember what's beautiful and to remain present in my life.Each week, Laurel Regan's Gratitude linkup over at Alphabet Salad is a way for me to share a few of the things I'm grateful for with others....more

Pimento Cheese: It's a Southern Thing

It's a Southern thing. I remember having pimento cheese as a child and, yes, it was the completely processed type, not the type mom made from scratch and I liked it.  Orange and creamy with little red bits in it.  It is not a food that has been a staple in my life by any means, as I have probably gone years without it, but every now and then I get a craving.  I always enjoyed it when I have had it.  I like it on crackers, on a sandwich with cucumber or as a treat in a grilled sandwich. ...more

My Favorite Power Foods and Healthy Snacks

I've always been a calorie counter but lately I'm trying to pay more attention to the make up of those calories.  When I don't, I come up short in protein, calcium and fiber and too high in sugars and random carbohydrates of little to no significant nutritional value.  When you focus on a calorie max AND the composition of those calories it forces you to make different decisions about what you eat.  I started this in January.  I knew I wouldn't be exercising for at least two months after surgery and thought it would be a good habit to get into.  I do not hi...more
