It’s going to be a beautiful day!

Good morning! I thought I would hop online to provide a quick mid-month update. Hard to believe it’s already mid-May. Where is the time going? Where has this year gone? It doesn’t seem possible that we’re already nearly half way into 2021. Have you noticed that time moves faster the older you get? Unless you’re…

The powers of positive thinking

It’s Saturday again. What started off as a chilly and dreary morning has turned into a sunny and bright day with a gentle cool breeze. I don’t know why I start these daily posts off with a weather update. I’m starting to sound like a weather report. The day started off with me lazing in…

Scrambled eggs with kale

I wasn’t having a great day today. I woke up around 1:00 pm with another brutal migraine. I wound up sleeping most of the day – that happens when your brain feels like exploding. I finally got to cooking dinner around 7:30 and wondered what I could make that was fast and healthy. I still…

Crab and Mushroom Stir Fry

I was feeling lazy last night but wanted to keep on with my healthy eating plan. I didn’t have any potatoes so I substituted them for frozen hashbrowns. This dish turned out to be surprisingly delicious. I need to stock up on spices this week – so that’s what I’ll be doing this afternoon. Some…

Healthy snacks – with Greek yogurt

I was going through some older photos and found these fantastic photos of low calorie snacks I made last summer. I thought I’d share. The recipes are quick and take a mere matter of minutes to make. I went through a phase last summer where I ate yogurt almost every day – actually to the…

Chili with Beans and Kale

Once again, there are ingredients in my fridge that need to be used up soon. This is the problem with single living. Fresh food like vegetables and fruits are really hard to keep long. Last night, I took out a bunch of kale and “massaged it” in cold water. I let it sit most of…
