Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Midwinter Break

A Basket of Spring From My Sister!

Breakfast fit for a Queen
I'm off to a great start on my day off!
For those who feel that eating healthy is too expensive or cumbersome; take heart! Here's what is in my healthy breakfast:
  • Organic Old Fashioned Oatmeal (99 cents a pound in bulk foods)
  • A teaspoon of honey (bought at Costco, really inexpensive)
  • About 7 raw almonds, chopped (another Costco deal)
  • 1tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • A handful of frozen unsweetened blueberries (I like Trader Joe's for these)
  • fat free milk
Cook the oatmeal and add everything else.
The oatmeal keeps the cholesterol in check. The honey keeps you from overdoing it with sugar and takes more effort for your system to digest. Almonds are heart healthy and so is the flax. Plus the flax is a phytoestrogen (take note you hot flashers!). Blueberries are a powerful antioxidant and brain food. The milk helps the bones. This is powerful stuff!
And the combined cost is about the same as that sugary processed junk they call cereal in the grocery store!
Its all a matter of choice.
Now it's time for a walk!

What a great breakfast, Deborah! Sure beats mine (Valentine's chocolate!) The flowers are lovely -- makes me think that spring is just around the corner.
