Today we tested out some create your own winter fruit art. Not only is it fun to make, it’s fun to eat! It can be holiday themed and makes for a great family activity.
Normally when I talk about mornings with people I find my late nights and sleepy mornings are usually the topics of discussion. This morning, however, as I was taking my morning Nature Made® Multi for Her plus Omega-3s Adult Gummies I realized I created a positively focused morning routine without thinking about it.
There’s just something about our late summer harvest that gets me in the mood to revamp my pantry. Fresh tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers. Yum! Creating homemade spaghetti sauces, canning tomatoes for soups throughout the year. It’s a wonderful thing and has me ready to toss the pantry and restock with healthier options.
To help give myself some motivation and ideas, and hopefully you as well, I’m sharing a list of healthier options for stocking your pantry and fridge.
I didn’t make resolutions this year. Well not really, I decided I’m going to try to live by a couple of choice words this year. One of those words was Wellness. I’ve always been a fan of a rounded out wellness plan. Something that focuses on mind, body and spirit. Stress and a sedentary lifestyle have taken it’s toll on me so I need to make some changes.
Big sudden changes don’t work for me. I lose motivation just as fast as I jump into them. Instead I decided to take some things I’ve done in the past that I kept up with and enjoy, and worked them into a regular wellness routine for myself. What I love about this routine is I can expand it to last an hour or more if I want to, or I can shorten it to fit into a thirty minute time frame. If I have even less time or small blocks of time, I can fit them in randomly through my day.

Over the years I’ve allowed society to dictate how I feel about my body. I payed attention to the people who insisted I lose weight, look toned, hide myself if I have fat on my body. It has been the norm to accept the body shaming that is built into how our society has evolved. I’ve…
