So, I have absolutely NOTHING scheduled to blog about today.  Instead, I'm going to pose this question to you -

What is one thing that you can do right now to better yourself emotionally, physically, spiritually, and/or mentally?

Whatever that one thing is, pause and do it - now.  Because you are worth it!

Have a great rest of your day

Scatter Hope {Photo Series}

I know this really great lady who talks a lot about scattering hope.  Actually, she does more than just talking about it, she lives it.  I'm pretty fortunate to know such a person and to have them in my life. So, I thought that it would be cool to do a photo series for the month focusing on Scattering Hope.

Beauty, history, good - light...Light is everywhere, there is even a bit in darkness.

Anti-Inflammatory Recipe of the Week

In September of 2015, I started Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Diet after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Endometriosis.  I share a new recipe each week to help those who may need to modify their eating habits to better their health. 
Food is medicine - You are what you eat

Snacks can be tricky, sometimes.  I mean, I can only do so much fruit and veggies before I want something crunchy, and I'm not talking celery sticks either.  Let's talk Roasted Chickpeas, shall we?  1/3 cup, which is one serving, will give you about 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.  Dietary fiber is SO important!  And, you need to get it from the foods that you consume, not a chemical cocktail that you add to a drink each day.  The general guideline is 14 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories consumed.

Typically I'm eyeball deep in tomatoes and zucchini at this time of year.  With a warm up in the area allowing for a bumper crop, this year would have been the year to make a few batch of these awesome Salt and Pepper Zucchini Chips.  That is had my garden grown.  *it did not*

Frugal Living Mom did an awesome job on these.  If you are not a fan of the pepper flavor, omit or lessen.  And, she is totally right, 1 lb of zucchini does not yield a whole lot.    

Now, go forth, and eat great food.  Your dietary limitations should not limit you from enjoying great food.
