Bone health

I know we don't often think about our bones, until we break them or someone is diagnosed with osteoporosis around us. Here is an interesting article from one of my Wise Woman resources.

Dr. Susan E. Brown, PhD, the osteoporosis nutritionist, offers information on bone health at any age and natural ways to build bone strength, reduce fracture risk, and prevent osteoporosis.

Some greens

So my computer is still in the shop, no word yet. So I am reduced to finding things on my phone to post about. Here is one of my best greens dinner in a while. It was just a bunch of collard greens, Swiss chard cut up and thrown in the crock pot with some turkey kilbasa and chicken stock.

I set it to one of the second lowest settings and dished it up with hot sauce and rice, so easy and tasted like home.

I am waiting on the crock pot now for some baked sweet potatoes for dinner. They smell great, I might serve them with a little cooked bacon and light sour cream. What would you put on yours?

Health and happiness to you and yours,

Very easy veggie lunch!

So you may or may not know this but I am trying to increase the amount of I eat veggies and decrease simple carbs. Nothing extreme it's just every time I eat bread or regular pasta I bloat, tmi but hey, I wouldn't want anyone to think I went to strict, I mean I married an Italian I can't get away from pasta completely.

I love mushrooms and if they are stuffed even better. I have a great (but highly caloric) sausage stuffed mushroom recipe, but that's not this, I give ya that recipe next time I make it. No this is a bit more healthy and quick enough to have for lunch.

I started with medium cremini mushrooms but portobellas and large white would be just fine. I then add a small nugget of frozen spinach directly out of the bag no defrosting, with me so far, easy. Then I placed a tablespoon of a Parmesan artichoke spread bought at a favorite grocery store and topped with Parmesan cheese.

Then into the toaster oven at 350 for about thirty minutes. Then take them out and enjoy their melty meaty yumminess!

Love Lip Balm Review from another great blog!

Love Lip Balm has lots of good for your skin oils like apricot kernel oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and coffee butter. With a touch of natural beeswax for a solid but not waxy feeling stick. With a slight scent of coffee and mint.
Enjoy this moisturizing, velvety feeling lip balm.

I am so thrilled to share with you a lovely review from Susieqtpies for her month of coffee on her blog here.
Love Lip Balm has been a favorite of my friends and family for a few years now, I am so glad someone else loves it as much as we do.

Thank You!

Lunch anyone?

I just love the color of my lunch grilled snapper on a bed of red cabbage slaw (blitz half red onion, two cloves garlic, handful of cilantro, red wine vinegar, olive oil in blender or processor and toss it with shredded read cabbage that is size small to medium) with a really good store bought corn tortilla and a little bit of green taco sauce. Oh my goodness so yummy even as left overs!

What are you doing for lunch today?

Lip balm as wedding favors.

So this is not the greatest of photos but being the Matron of Honor had me moving quite a bit. For my sister's wedding the Love Lip Balm was altered to have more of a rose scent (no coffee butter) and the labels were customized for the couple. We then stamped wax bags with a customized rubber stamp in gold ink and attached it to a muslin bag also stamped with a piece of linen twine. I made the wedding programs as well in the colors of the wedding, printed and bound just in time for the wedding. My good friend's are getting maried this weekend and it had me thinking of all the fun decorations that go into the event. 

I hope you enjoy,
