“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

A new year is the perfect time to move out of your comfort zone and try new recipes and ingredients…NEW HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES!

I have been trying to eat a more “plant based” diet the last few weeks. Not ALL plant based, just MORE. I have been struggling with a few issues, most likely age related. I thought possibly eating more “green” and less “animal” even though I enjoy meat would help. I love food! All kinds of food! Here are a few things, along with the various soups, I have been enjoying…

Yum! There are just so many fun and delicious things to make.

I was awake super early this morning, actually I didn’t sleep much. Today I went for a CT scan. My doctor and I have tried a few different things for this “reoccurring dizzy” that I seem to get, so we both figured it was time to test further…pray the results come back good! I have to say I was a wee bit nervous going in the scan even though I have used a tanning bed before ( a few people said it’s kinda like that) But I didn’t think it was at all like that. In fact because I only needed my head scanned, my whole body didn’t go in and it was very quick. In and out and finished and a quick walk home ( the hospital is practically in my backyard) before my actual appointment time. Now to wait for the results…

Sure I’ve had my legs and feet done, also neck and shoulders, but I have never taken the time or booked an “official” appointment for a massage. It’s usually something I decide on a whim when we are vacationing. My son and daughter in law LOVE their regular massage appointments and convinced me that I need to add that to part of my “health care” The problem is…if I enjoy it too much, I don’t know if my husband will be able to afford all the appointments? haha

And as I imagined…it was lovely!!!



Well, that was my day. This year I need to concentrate on me ( just a bit) get some things changed ( fixed) that need changing! This is part of that commitment!

I hope you’re having a great day! What do you do to look after yourself so you’re healthy?

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
