Chocolate Bowls!

We made chocolate bowls with melted chocolate chips and balloons! This was our first attempt. Can't wait to do it again. 

Pretty cool!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Bella won't make it to the ball drop and to be honest I probably won't either. I'm going to cook the traditional ham, greens, black eye peas, and cornbread for the first time tomorrow. Wish me luck! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Years Day!

I love to juice. Here is my favorite recipe.

This is the juicer my sweet friend sent me when mine died. I love it!

I use beets (including the greens), celery, cucumber, carrots, apple, and ginger root.

I add a half teaspoon of Moringa to every jar.

I end up with about a half gallon of juice and then I fill it the rest of the way with purified water.

It yields  12 small jars of yummy goodness. I keep them in the freezer until I am ready to drink it.

Slow Progress

For the last year I have been working pretty hard on getting healthy and changing my body composition. I have had my ups and downs. The last few weeks have been a down so it's time to refocus, regroup, and push on. 

This is from December of last year

And this is from September of this year

I do have to admit I see a slight change and I also have to remember that when you are 40 it takes a little more time and effort to achieve your goals.

Now that I have wollowed in self pitty and copious amounts of food for two weeks it's time to get back on track!

Lazy Day

We did not want to get up today

But we did and made a small breakfast 

And I decided to flip through some books and this one caught my eye. My mother gave it to me on her last visit.  Its very interesting.

Maybe tomorrow Ill have something interesting to post.
