Within Reach


Health and happiness are within my reach when I provide myself with good food, clean water, fresh air, exercise.

Success is within my reach when I move into a positive mindset, joy filled expression and determined will.

The Perfect Laughter


Laughter is a perfect food for thought, as wholesome as delightful, a charming restorer of a depressed power; but it’s motive must be pure and its delivery carefully administered.

Today I laugh with the perfection of restorative power.


Gotta Start Somewhere!

vegburg_friesIf you have ever had a desire to become a vegetarian, vegan or just a more health-conscious eater, here is a great tip to get you started.

You don’t have to go vegan or vegetarian (for that matter) cold turkey! Do it gradually. If you are a red meat and pork eater, cut that first. Your body has the hardest time processing these meats. Instead of ground beef, try ground turkey or Boca Meatless Ground Burger. It has a wonderful texture and it holds up very well when you cook it. You can use it for just about anything you use ground beef for. If you want a hot dog, Morningstar Farms (MSF) makes great hot dog products. They make great corn dogs and mini corn dogs as well as veggie dogs. You will never even know the difference. Instead of eating hamburgers, try a veggie burger. Both Boca ( and MSF ( make great veggie burgers. Depending on what you have a taste for, you can find a veggie burger to suit you. They cook up wonderfully if you have a George Foreman grill or similar quick-grilling device. You should also try the MSF Breakfast Sausage. freshfruitvegetableTastes just like the pork version. It is wonderfully seasoned and the texture is great. Grab a biscuit and a patty of sausage, ‘honey-chile’ you’ll be in heaven! There are also great chicken and beef strips for fajitas or salads by MSF.

For your other meats, eat the boneless, skinless kind. Bake, broil or grill your chicken and turkey. If you must season it, Mrs. Dash ( will never let you down. There are plenty of varieties to suit your taste. If you must use salt, use sea salt. It comes in course grind and fine ground.
