SOUTHWESTERN SWEET POTATO

“Treat your body like an instrument – not an ornament.”  Gary Thomas I got this recipe from my granddaughter Em’s Youtube channel, Em At Home.  It’s a plant based recipe that has so many options and, better yet, I served it last night and husband, George, loved it.  What a great way to get yellow…

HAIRY UPDATE

“Do the Work!” Recently, a post on Facebook asked people to give advice in 4 words or less.  One of the replies was, “Do the Work.”  Wow!  That covers a lot of territory.  Too often I find myself saying that I want something to happen.  That’s a nice idea but what’s lacking is investing the…

HEALTHY NAILS

“A woman is helpless only while her nail polish is drying.” Truth be told, I was looking for a dietary health tip for the body that would include green leafy vegetables.  That’s because of yesterday’s post about my granddaughter, Em, and her kale salad.  I was not a regular kale eater.  Because… OK.  I know…
