Halloween Happiness starts at the beginning of October for me 🙂 That’s when I begin my countdown to one of my favorite holidays of the year. The reason I love Halloween so much is . . . you guessed it — THE CANDY!!! There are three days of the year that I allow myself all the candy I want — my birthday, Valentine’s Day and Halloween!As you know from my posts, I am extremely careful about what I eat so I do have a method to enjoying all the candy I want without packing on the pounds. There are a lot of different approaches so choose what works best for you.Read More

How I eat, how I exercise and how I live my life all revolve around my commitment to my wellness.
I’m focused on remaining healthy and maintaining a strong metabolism and healing as I age. I gravitate toward products and brands that elevate my efforts. Too many companies out there make false claims to make clean products that drive real results. The sad truth is that those same companies are often preying on consumers’ vulnerabilities.
When I find a company that holds the same values as I do AND creates products with clinically-proven results, I know I’ve come across the real deal. That is why I was thrilled when I was approached by Pendulum, a cutting-edge company dedicated to making people healthier through microbiome-targeted natural solutions.Read More
Frozen fruit pops have always been a favorite of mine! I remember as a young girl I waited all day for the ice cream truck. There were three different vendors that came down my street. But there was one I liked the best because it had great frozen pops. Although I preferred ice cream, I always chose the frozen fruit pops because they lasted a long time!
I still love nothing better on a sweltering day. Once that frozen fruit pop hits my lips I am instantly cooled off — like a big, cool gust of wind. There are plenty of good commercial pops. but I like my frosty frozen fruit pops the best!Read More
I always thought I had a good immune system as I don’t get sick very often. At sixty-nine my flu shots were limited to only years when I had surgery. However, during this long lock down, I started to think about my immune system a lot. How good was it actually? And are there things I should be doing differently to maximize my immunity?
I prepared early for the pandemic – I purchased masks, bottled water, frozen foods and medications. I canceled all appointments and allowed no one in my home. While I had all my necessary supplies, the one thing I gave no thought to was preparing was my immune system.Read More
One of my absolute favorite foods is summer rolls. Although originally from Vietnam they are readily available at most Thai restaurants. I eat them all year round but they are so refreshing they make a great summer food. So easy to make and very versatile. Use these two recipes as a jumping off point. If you’re vegan or vegetarian just leave out the protein. Grilled tofu is also a great substitute. And they are gluten free which is important to me!Read More
