Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. ~Leonardo DaVinci

Using frozen corn helps to pre-chill the salad so you can serve it more quickly. When corn is available fresh, clean the corn and then slice off the kernels. Nothing more yummy than fresh corn off the cob. Refrigerate, if desired, before serving.

- Good Source of FIBER
- Made with WHOLE GRAIN
It's a calculated ploy to convince you that junk food is healthy for you. Put the package down, step back and walk away... no, run!
Yes, these cereals are junk food!
Let's look at Froot (nothing close to fruit) Loops:

Pears should be fully ripe for eating out of hand. For salads or cooking, they are best when firm-ripe. Check this article for details on types of pears and what to look for when selecting pears for cooking.

Grabbing my shopping bag, camera and money, I moved swiftly to check out the market, hoping to make my purchases and get back before the rain struck again—this time with thunder and lightening.

You need a plan.
Start with your home—that will be the hardest—especially if your house is full of hungry grouches (I say this endearingly) who don’t see eye-to-eye with you on eating healthy.
Here are things you can do to make things go smoother.

It would seem that I'm on a Thai roll here. Thai food is so healthy. I can always go Thai when I eat out. Vegan/vegetarian is a snap to get at a Thai restaurant. And they always have lots of veggies in their creations. If you're concerned about heat, Thai food can be adjusted. Of course, if you want heat you can add more fresh ground chili paste (aka Sambal Oelek).
This recipe is very mild so if you like heat you may want to get out your Sambal paste and add a bit. You know a little goes a long way. I adapted this recipe from one in the newsletter for the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op.

Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats. ~VoltaireI want to introduce the fourth root of optimum wellness: Attitude. Together with diet, exercise and sleep, a healthy attitude will assure you stay healthy and live longer. Attitude encompasses a myriad of issues. You can do all the right things with diet, exercise and sleep, but if you are negative, take things personally or hold on to issues of hurt from your childhood, I guarantee your health will suffer.
Attitude is more than just positive thinking. There are some things we cannot think away. I put these into the category of psychological damage. Stuff that we endured in our childhood and likely carried into a marriage or other relationship. These are things that hold us back and keep us from believing what God says about us. They haunt us (oftentimes unconsciously) and cause us to react relationally in an unhealthy way.

A couple of months ago I started getting spam for mothers and mothers-to-be. I shook my head, marked it as Junk and went on my merry way.
Then last week I opened up my mail box and found a box of Similac samples. Wha? I wondered, How did they get my address? And, What made them think this grandmother of three was having a baby? For the record, that would be a miracle... and then I got an American Baby magazine in my mailbox.
I'm gonna chock this up to two things:
- There is no privacy—everything about you is known by anybody who wants to know
- Can anybody get anything right today?

So since its Cinco de Mayo, I'll be bringing Asian Burritos this time. Dipped in the peanut sauce I bring, they are deelicious. Late comers to the food table always find them gone cause they get gobbled up.
