Your Soul’s Needs

Your Soul’s Needs

Last week we all went north of Muskegon, Michigan to try out a new horse for our daughter. The owner of the new horse met us at his ranch and then took us to another ranch down the road where they would be playing with some cows. His wife joined us to watch for a bit. It was the first time I had met his wife, Diane, and the brief conversation I had with her that night had such an impact on me that I felt the need to share it with everyone.

Eighth Day Farm

Eighth Day Farm

Yesterday my daughter and I were heading to the antique store in the little strip mall in Holland Michigan (Holland Town Center) that houses a few outlet stores and the Tulip Festival favorite, Dutch Village.  I was searching for some unique decorations and my daughter was hoping to find some old Breyer horses.  When we pulled into the parking lot, I couldn’t believe what I saw!!  What used to be a huge parking lot that was never used (the mall doesn’t get a whole lot of traffic) had been transformed into an amazingly beautiful garden!!

Spike Your Drink With Essential Oils

Spike Your Drink With Essential Oils

Recently I was re-introduced to the idea of adding a couple of drops of essential oils to my drinks.  I used to add a couple of drops of lemon essential oil to my jasmine tea for an amazing morning “brew," but took a break from that combination and never gave too much thought to another fusion.  Until recently, that is.

Healing Mood Disorders With Food

Healing Mood Disorders With Food

Like many doctors and other nutritionists, Trudy recommends people with health or mood issues first try removing gluten from the diet. While not everyone is affected by gluten, 80-90% of the patients she removed from gluten thrived, and there are no ill effects to taking gluten from the diet. Often this is a beginning step toward healing the gut, even if you do not present any obvious symptoms, and putting the body back in balance.

Chloe Coscarelli's Vegan Meatballs!

Chloe Coscarelli's Vegan Meatballs!

On today’s interview, they brought out these vegan meatball sliders and they looked like real meatballs.  So I clicked on the link for the recipe to check out the ingredients, because I couldn’t believe that they would actually come close to real meatballs.  And when I saw the ingredients, I thought these might actually work - brown rice, mushroom, and onion, were the base of the recipe.  So I got right to work on making Spaghetti with Meatless Meatballs.
