Inspiring a life with smiles...™
There are 365 days in a year. (8,760 hours)
Let's make up some yearly numbers based on my own experiences and those of friends:
Imagine you work at least 50 weeks of the year, 40 hours a week. (2,000 hours)
Perhaps you sleep at least 8 hours per night (counting any extra weekend hours). (2,920 hours)
For a sunny warm weather loving soul like myself, the grayness of winter can make it difficult to keep the smiles shining forth from my face. Fortunately, my SigO had a panacea to beat away the winter blues...We took a short trip this past weekend to...
Disclaimer: Before you venture any further into this post, I freely admit to being in awe of all the talented people who put together the exhibits, displays, and gardens. The pictures are my own taken on my iPhone while hanging out at the Boston Flower Show. The credit for these images goes to those who were featured at the show, such as GregGrady.com who did the lovely sand sculptures at the show. May these pics of my day, brighten yours...
I used to love the old Adam West Batman shows. The good guys always won, and you always knew who the bad guys were despite them trying to sneak around. If only it were so easy in real life...
Recently I watched the video "Fed Up" - a documentary on sugar. Much of the information seemed geared towards approaching foods with common sense. However the tidbit that struck me the most was in how many seemingly "health foods" sugar was hiding...in plain sight.
Update August 2016: Originally this post was written in March 2015, BEFORE I was vegan...I can honestly say that I never have fish or cheese cravings since turning vegan. If you are making the switch...GO FOR IT! Your body, and taste buds, will thank you!
So my vegetarian adventure began with a serious dilemma...If I was not going to eat fish based sushi, what would I eat?
Sure I could eat vegetarian sushi, but my local Whole Foods - which is like mini-me Whole Foods - was severely lacking on delicious looking options. (Sad looking seaweed wrapped carrots anyone? Sigh.) Weekends were when I counted on not having to figure out a meal because yummy salmon avocado rolls beckoned playfully. Eat me...eat me...Would my vegetarian adventure end before it had even begun?
A few days ago, I made the decision to go vegetarian. (Technically I think the correct term is lacto-ovo-vegetarian since I still enjoy the occasional egg or cheese item.) I've been a happy pescetarian for about a year and a half. A pescetarian is an "almost" vegetarian who enjoys the occasional fish, but no other meat.
So this past Friday I was happily eating my salmon sushi when the thought popped into my head "I think I would like to try to be a vegetarian..." No rhyme or reason...and yet...
