    How Did You Quit Smoking?

    How Did You Quit Smoking? I am coming to y’all for some help again. I am looking for methods that others have used, and have success with, for quitting smoking.

    A Healthy Body And Mind

    A healthy body and mind can help us get through not only these challenging times, but day to day life in general. In this current global pandemic, it’s more important than ever we focus on mindfulness. You might be young and healthy, but many of us in our communities may be vulnerable, especially the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Many of the external events swirling around us are beyond our control, but we can control our reactions and adapt to this temporary new normal of “social distancing. A vital component in this adaptation process is to give proper attention to mind/body/spirit wellness – which the practice of Yoga…

    Homemade Hand Sanitizer

    We will show you how to make your own homemade hand sanitizer that works just as well as the store bought types. With it being cold and flu season, many people add hand sanitizer to their shopping lists. Now add in the Coronavirus outbreak, and most of the stores, even Amazon in some instances, are completely sold out of hand sanitizer. Older adults, children and people with compromised immune systems are the ones that are at the greatest risk of not being able to fight off colds, flu and Coronavirus (if they became infected).

    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash A good friend of mine, Eileen, rarely eats meat. She started this way of eating after her daughter became a Pescatarian. Someone who is a Pescatarian does not eat meant but does eat fish. Well anyways, she is a huge “foodie” just as I am. We are always looking for new recipes and trying them out. Do you have any idea how hard it is to do that with someone that doesn’t eat meat? Ha Ha!! I found a recipe recently that sounded really good and reminded me of both Eileen and her daughter. I figured I would give it a try as Tom is always…

Would you at least try doing them for a week or so? When I was younger I used to just pop out of bed and go about my day.

I have been trying to eat a bit healthier and these past several years, I just haven’t been able to¬†wrap my tongue around “brown rice” …UNTIL NOW!!! This is very flavorful and almost tastes like white rice. It works well with everything, including eating it plain right out of a bowl (one of my favorite ways, truth be told.
