Savor The Good Stuff

      No Comments on Savor The Good Stuff

Can I be really honest with you?  I love healthy food, really I do, but I don’t want my life revolving around all the things I “can’t” have.  And I don’t want you to feel like you have to do that either! Last night I made a version of Egyptian Beef Shawerma, rice, asparagus and Tzatziki sauce.  Yes, I know… Read more »

Be Yourself

      No Comments on Be Yourself

I have been doing a lot of writing lately. Writing has always been a sort of therapy for me.  For as long as I can remember, I have written in journals.  It is a way for me to express my feelings and thoughts without the fear of rejection. When I was really young and even in my teen years, I… Read more »

Revolution Recipe #2-Banana Bread Overnight Oats

I actually made this overnight oatmeal the same day I made the Mushroom Risotto.  While the Risotto was in the oven, I mixed up the ingredients and put them in the jars.  I made a double batch, because I was making it for my husband and wanted to make sure there was enough. He loves instant oatmeal in the mornings,… Read more »

Trying Out Revolution Recipes-Mushroom Risotto

I tried out a couple of new recipes over the weekend and thought I would share one of them with you. One of the reasons people don’t want to eat healthy is because they think eating healthy means eating salads and raw vegetables all the time.  And I get it, some people just don’t like raw vegetables, or any vegetables… Read more »

Throwing in the Towel

      No Comments on Throwing in the Towel

Have you ever felt like “throwing in the towel”, quitting, just plain giving up?  I have, more times than I can remember. Like this week.  I started a 10 day shred with my team and wanted to quit really before I even got started good.  What person in their right mind, who gets up at 4:30 in the morning, quits… Read more »

From Me to You

      1 Comment on From Me to You

If you are reading this, it’s because I care about you. I know sometimes when you hear someone say they care about you the first thing you think is, “I haven’t heard from them in months, and they say they care about me” or “She doesn’t even know me, how can she say she cares about me?”. Trust me, I… Read more »

Faith without Work

      No Comments on Faith without Work

If you have been in the church at all you have probably heard the quote, “Faith without works is dead.”  I have struggled with this quote for a long time, but this morning it was almost like a light bulb turned on in my mind.  To some it may seem elementary, but maybe you will realize the same things as… Read more »

Personal Growth

      No Comments on Personal Growth

Have you ever been in a place where you think you’ve got it all figured out?  I’ve been there a few times.  Luckily when I’m in those places someone comes along or something happens to remind me I’ve still got a lot to learn. During the last couple of months I’ve been doing a lot of reading for my own… Read more »
