OK, it is time to get that obscene picture off my top page and move on. I know, I offended some of you with that hot fudge Sunday. Sorry, but you know you all wanted a little taste!
Let's move on to being healthy. I really want to make a goal of no sugar for a month but I lack the courage. I know it is a noble thing. I know my body would stand up and cheer but..... no sugar?? That means no chocolate.....well at least the kind I want. I 'll let you know when I am that brave but I do need to back it off just a little. I usually try to keep it to a couple treats a weekend only but it seems like it is spilling over into the week now and then. It just tastes so good. Anyone else out there brave enough to join me? Maybe I need a little company.
Now on to the healthy talk. It is warming up here in AZ so it is time to get your gardens ready. You should be getting ready to plant in the next couple of weeks. I love the summer garden! My mouth waters even thinking about what a real tomato tastes like freshly picked and ohhh, that tomatillo salsa! Can't wait. If you don't have a garden space , you can do a grow box or even containers. I have done it on an apartments ledge and on a narrow strip in a small backyard. There is always room for just a little something. The nutrients from a fresh picked vegetable versus one picked and left on a shelf for a period of time are dramatic. I don't even know if they understand what nutrients are contained in something just picked. It is the way it should be but we can't grow it all. Just growing a few things yourself will help your body greatly. Think about it. If you need help, I have a good friend who will build you a grow box, deliver it, fill it with good dirt and all for a low cost. His name is Arlon Smith and you can contact him at 480 456-1253. He has a 4X4 for $90 and other sizes on demand.
If you are ready to take the next step in being healthy in your life, I have a friend here in the valley that can teach you how. Her name is Kara and if you have checked out her link off my site, you will know that she knows a few things. She is a step , or two , above me in the nutrition area with sprouting, fermenting and creating healthy recipes. I haven't gone all the way yet like her but someday I will get there. She has some great classes coming up so go to her site here and check out the spring schedule. Her classes are on Saturday mornings. They feature topics like fermenting, soaking, tortilla making, pressure cooking and dressing up your greens. She has done this as a profession and serves up some mighty fine samples. Check her out.
So there you go. If anyone is out there bored, you now have something to do. I hope you all don't thing less of me from the hot fudge post but just in case you do, here is something else.... I went to a movie today by myself at lunch time and my bathroom isn't clean. There. (That was a first...the movie part anyways. It was nice but probably won't get to happen again.) I was just soaking in the day today. Now, time to clean the bathroom.
