Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I went to a great class at our Whole Foods Market last Friday. My friend Kat Conrad does the class and she is always incredibly clever. She puts combinations of food together that you would never guess would work. This was one of them! Desserts are one of her specialties. I am not sure if she has her ice cream recipes posted yet or not on her website, but just click on her name to check.
The vanilla ice cream is made using a…Continue
Two years ago my life changed. I had no idea that simply changing what I ate would change my whole world, but it did. I want to thank many of you here at RFR and also on our sister site, Cleanse America, for your support and inspiration. Life just keeps getting better and better everyday.
Check out my blog for my "birthday" thoughts.
Keep it green everyone!! Life is so good!…Continue
I had the most incredible time at 105 degrees in Oklahoma City. Philip McClusky is a phenomenal man who shared his story with us with open, honest sincerity. So inspiring. A believer in vision and affirmation. He knows how to make things happen in his life. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to hear his story and meet him.
Plus, he is gorgeous!
Don't we look great…Continue
Life and love have been so good to us. As my mother always reminds me, I am so lucky. I agree with her!
Tonight really wasn't all that much different than most of our nights, except for fresh flowers, presents and dessert! Every night we sit at our kitchen island, with the TV off, and we share a meal and share our day. The good, the bad, the ordinary, and the extraordinary. We talk and we listen. I often take that for granted, but it really is very special and probably one…Continue
Today, while keeping out of the storm, I made my very first Nori rolls. I had never even eaten Nori before, let alone made something out of them, but after watching the recent Foodie Friday, I have been dying to try them.
So here are the filler ingredients
We have about six inches of snow at this point and it is still expected to snow a few more hours. Just crazy!! So we are home today. It certainly isn't the blizzard of last week, but with the temperature at 11 degrees, the wind chill at minus 5, it is not a day to be driving around and getting stuck! Today should break the record amount of snow for one season in Oklahoma.
I think the birds have probably had enough too.…Continue
I love it when it just all comes together. I stood looking in the refrigerator wondering what to make when the light bulb came on! My light bulb, not the refrigerator bulb!
I grabbed a carrot, parsnip, celery stalk and a red pepper. I ran it all through the food processor and then added some chopped cilantro and squeezed half a lemon over it all. This is what I call wrap stuffing. Pretty, huh.…Continue
What an amazing dessert!
And here it is, in all it's beauty, all dressed and ready to go!
The Blizzard of 2011 in Oklahoma is behind us now. The aftermath is here though and we are still unable to maneuver much beyond our front doors. No problem. I played in the kitchen yesterday and today!
So, first I made this:
It doesn't have a name yet. It was really good.
I shredded a carrot,…Continue
An at home day! I LOVE at home days!
Snow. Ice. 18 degrees and a wind chill of 1 degree!
Schools closed. Our office officially closed too!
It is a gift of time.
Smoothie time and the thoughts of the tropics came to mind as I gazed out the window at the snow.
This smoothie was amazing so I had to share it!…
An at home day! I LOVE at home days!
Today we have been blanketed with snow and ice. Schools are closed and my office is closed! Yahoooooooooooooo . . . I am trying to contain myself! This is not a regular occurence in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
So now I get to decide how to spend this gift of time. Oh the choices!!!
First on the list, my smoothie! There is something very beautiful about holding that glass…Continue
After a week of being on vacation I went back to work today. So back to the routine of fixing lunches and smoothie prep before I go to bed. On the way home from work I made a stop at Whole Foods for fruit and greens. The chard was really nice so I thought it would make a great wrap. I made the Lemon Artichoke Hummus over the weekend and used that as a spread on the chard, then made a veggie mix to put in the wrap.
Eating healthy costs less than a diet of prescriptions. Of course, I would guess that most of you at RFR already know this. For me, and I should mention that since making a radical diet change almost 6 months ago, I take no medication which has saved me lots of money. I buy no meat, and I spend what was drug and meat money on lots of great fruits and vegetables. My life had changed in many ways.
Today in our local newspaper, the Tulsa World, there is a great article, And good…Continue
I generally spend a few hours on the day I do my shopping to wash, chop, store, and get lots of things just ready to toss into a recipe (or my mouth!). Today it really paid off. My Mom had cataract surgery, which was perfect, and that took up a good portion of the day. Several errands, a meeting, and I was finally home at 4:15 p.m., starving!
This is my salad that was ready to eat in 5 minutes. Seriously, 5 minutes flat!
Thursday night I got two ears of corn in my veggie bag and thought it a bit odd in the middle of the winter. I am not a big fan of corn, so I wasn't too impressed. Then along came Anner's recipes and I thought, "Hmmmm, Broccoli Corn Slaw, might be pretty good."
