Aiming for a Healthier Lifestyle: Sharing Meals

Was your goal for 2017 to live a healthier lifestyle?  It’s the end of January.  Have you found yourself wanting to give up on your goal?  In this post, I want to share something that has helped me.

In my quest to eat healthier, I began to research ways to eat healthier.  One article would tell me to cut out fat.  One article said eats lots of fats.  For every article I read supporting a certain way of eating, there was an article telling me to do the opposite.  I was so confused.  One day in my confusion I sought my answer not in articles, but in prayer.  How do I know what I should eat?  I felt my answer was clear.  My little way to healthier eating was to eat what God created.Read More »

Oven Baked Crunchy Parmesan Garlic Green Beans

If you read my Easy Baked Cheesy Chicken and Tomatoes post a few weeks ago, you’ll remember that I had some baked green beans as the side.  Well, as promised, here’s the recipe for those delicious green beans…

I originally made this dish as a side for a supper club meal a few years back, and it was an instant hit.  What I love about this recipe is that it is not only delicious, but it is also healthy too!  I don’t know about you, but I can only eat steamed green beans or broccoli so many times a week.  This is a great way to get another serving of green beans during the week without getting bored.  As an added plus, it’s a fairly simple recipe with ingredients that I usually keep in my pantry.Read More »

What’s in the Greenhouse? Planting Seeds

At the end of last year, I was blessed with a greenhouse for my garden.  It was something I hoped for but didn’t think I would ever own.   Close friends of ours were moving from the outskirts of  a nearby city to a ten acre farm near our home.  They did not plan on moving this beautiful greenhouse to the farm because they were going to build a larger one.  I was so excited and blessed that they helped make this dream a reality.  With my husband’s labor of love, he made a spot in my garden by leveling the ground and laying pavers.  Then he disassembled the greenhouse, hauled it to our property and reassembled it in our garden. Now it is time to put the greenhouse to use.Read More »

This week I’m going to introduce you to Young Living’s monthly promotions.  I often get asked how someone can grow their Young Living essential oil collection without emptying their bank account.  While I feel that these oils are worth every single penny of their price because of the unmatched quality, I also understand the need to stay within a budget.

What’s in the Garden? Cauliflower

As I stated in an earlier post, I didn’t plant much of a fall garden.  After walking in the garden today,  I wish I had planted more cauliflower.  Although I have tried planting cauliflower in the past couple of years, I had not been very successful.  I would wait for them to grow to a size similar to what I purchase in grocery stores.  This never happened.  The heads of cauliflower were small and if I waited for them to grow larger they became too mature and began to separate.  My harvests were small and of lower quality than I hoped for.   Looking at the picture of this year’s cauliflower, I am sure that you will agree that my cauliflower was a success this year and that is why I wish I had planted more.Read More »
