I love using mason jars to store my food. They are convenient, keep food fresh, and easy to clean, but most importantly, they are just plain cute! Part of eating mindfully is to notice the taste, texture, and smells of our food. This includes the visual presentation of food as well. Mason jars can elevate… Continue reading »

Nothing beats outdoor grilling on a warm summer night.  When you are grilling your meat, don’t forget the vegetables. Grilled vegetables go well with grilled meat or fish and make wonderful left-overs. My favorites are broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini and red peppers, mushrooms, and onions.

Move More

This summer has wreaked havoc with my exercise routine.

Live Mindfully

Nuts are a staple in my family. A nut bowl was always at my house growing up particularly around the holidays. You could pick up an actual nutcracker and spend time cracking and cleaning for the perfect bite of nut. It was a great tradition, albeit time-consuming.
