break Miss a week?

Easy, elegant, and made in just minutes, raspberry balsamic salmon is quick enough for a weeknight meal for family, friends or entertaining. The sauce works well with chicken too. Serve with asparagus or green beans and a green salad with raspberry vinaigrette....
My entrée certainly sounded innocuous, yet it arrived egg-battered and drowning in some syrupy, sugary sauce. Full disclosure: I’d become distracted by my dinner date at a hip new Italian bistro and figured a grilled chicken dish where I subbed another green veggie for the scalloped potatoes sounded perfectly healthy. Was I ever wrong, and my bad decision confirmed the biggest restaurant rule: Never, ever assume anything. If you have the slightest bit of doubt, ask, which ultimately becomes easier than sending something back....
For years, we’ve been led to believe that high cholesterol levels lead to heart disease and early death. Statin drugs to lower LDL cholesterol are increasingly being prescribed and more than 13 million Americans, including most men over the age of 60 are taking them! ...
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. —Ephesians 1:4 NLT By faith in Christ you now live at peace with God (Romans 5:1). In fact, God says he chose you from the very start. You are part of his family, and he accepts you completely. In his eyes, you are holy and without fault....
Keep your body and your budget healthy with these savvy recipes that make the most of whole-food ingredients. If you’ve ever experienced the challenge of putting together a healthy meal that is also affordable, you’re not alone. My personal interest in healthy eating on a budget comes from the sense of stewardship I feel toward the resources available to my family — which include both food and money. I want to honor the gorgeous bounty of fresh, healthy ingredients available to us while bringing a sense of connection and celebration to every meal. Part of that pleasure includes knowing that I’ve been smart about my spending....
You’ll find no shortage of celebrities endorsing various superfoods all over the world wide web and their social media accounts; which is all well and good until you get a closer look at the price of these super-expensive life enhancers!...
“I want to eat healthier, but it’s too expensive. I can’t afford it.” It’s a refrain I hear almost every day. Now, I’ll grant you that buying 1,000 calories of Cocoa Puffs is cheaper than buying 1,000 calories of fresh vegetables or pasture-raised meat. And if trying to support yourself and your family on limited funds, it can be difficult to choose a fresh avocado at $1.29 each instead of the gooey, green, pre-packaged and preserved “avocado sauce” that probably doesn’t contain an ounce of avocado. ...
Even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, my love won’t walk away from you. —Isaiah 54:10 MSG Do you find it hard to believe the depth of God’s love? If it’s hard for you to reach out in love to other people, it may be that you are not secure in knowing that you are unconditionally loved. If you are secure in God’s love for you, you can handle the imperfect ways of other people. You can concentrate on loving them and not worry too much if they don’t make you feel deeply loved in return....
As a holistic nutritionist, I always ask my clients if they enjoy cooking. Reviews have been mixed. I would say most feel overwhelmed, like they don't have the time. Some are just plain bored of it. We all want as much energy as possible to work toward becoming our best selves, so the way we nourish ourselves could not be more important. If you want to be energized you need to eat energizing, nourishing foods. Simple math. Your health is an equation of daily decisions adding up to well-being or illness. If we can make the time to binge-watch a Netflix show, then we can carve out enough time to cook quinoa. Heck, you can even listen to Netflix while you cook....
