Peachy-Lime Strawberry Smoothie


Breakfast smoothies are my go-to morning food.  They are time saving, can be drank on the way to work plus there are so many different flavors that can be created, I never get bored.  But not all smoothies are created equally or provide the same nutritional value.

Deliciously Inspired
 In March of 2015, I began using Shakeology when I looked at the ingredient list and was pretty impressed.  I was willing to put my current protein powder aside and put it to the test.  Within 3 months, my face had cleared up, my energy increased, my cravings were manageable, my thinking was clearer and my digestive tract was running like clockwork.  Shakeology is more than a protein powder but made from whole food with vitamins and nutrients that support a healthy lifestyle.  Even on days I miss my nutrition mark, drinking Shakeology secures my body one sound meal.  Want to know more – email me at Remember recipes give a direction to head but are suggestions and one can most the time exchange similar ingredients in an out to achieve general destination. Do you have a special smoothie combination you really like?    


More than Managing

Strawberry Infused Tea

Topic:  Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it

I’ve had some health challenges the past few years.  I list them only for the purpose of education just in case someone needs to connect – Interstitial Cystitis, Severe Sleep Apnea and Shingles twice within a few months of each other which has left me with a neuropathy where the nerves were affected.  

Okay enough of that – This is how I manage it:

My faith in God – I trust Him with my days and nights

Search out a team of health providers to partner with me

Listen to the language of my body – move on most days and know when it is time to rest

Take time for the little moments of sweetness – a glass of  iced herbal tea, baby’s giggle, watch a sunset or sunrise, etc.

Consistent exercise program (cardio, strength training, swimming and yoga)

Good nutrition – on most days

Choose to deposit more positive than negative in my life 

Choose not to let pain define me

Family time


Working on projects I am passionate about

Do you have some tips on managing the challenges in life?  We learn a lot from sharing with each other.


Pomegranate (The Jewel of Autumn) – How to Clean

Last weekend I went to our local Farmer’s Market and the first thing I spotted were beautiful pomegranates for $1 each.  I purchased two of them and dreamed of a salad to feature them in (post coming next week).  This fruit is also known as the seeded apple or Chinese apple. It is a good source of Vitamins C, K and fiber and looks like rubies.

Pomegranate - Finished

Below are the steps to get to the gorgeous fruit.

Pomegranate - Whole

Fill a large bowl with cool water and place in your sink. Place a plastic bag nearby for the skin and membrane. Cut the top and bottom off of the pomegranate and score the side. Place the pomegranate in the bowl of water and gently pull the pomegranate into pieces.

Pomegranate - Separating

Gently separate the fruit away from the skin and membrane. Leave seeds in the water and place the membrane and skin in the plastic bag.

Pomegranate - Combo

Soon all the fruit will be in the water bowl.   Remove as much of the little membrane pieces from the water as possible.  I always have a few left.  Pour through a small colander and enjoy in oatmeal, salads, yogurt, dessert or just by the handful.
