February is Heart Health Month ~ Do we really need to be reminded?

We do! On your next outing just check out the number of people who are carrying around some extra weight. Too many of us are busy leading our lives, going to work, taking care of house and home, and all at the expense of our own health. So here I am jumping on the bandwagon, giving you (and myself) a loving little nudge. Take care of your self and your heart. Instead of reaching for a doughnut or candy bar next break, give yourself a little time to breath and make yourself a pretty little snack. Slice an apple (or if time is short, spend a little more and buy some pre-sliced apples), pair it with a serving of delicious almond butter and a glass of orange infused water. Imagine you are at a four star (maybe five star resort, it's your fantasy).☺
You deserve a healthy, delicious and beautiful snack
Now, close your eyes...and take in a nice, deep breath...think about something that makes you feel relaxed or joyful...and when you are ready...open your eyes. Feeling good, right? ☺ I thought so...Have a beautiful day. ~Blessings, Janet

  8. Apples and peanut butter are my favorite snack or lunch. But almond butter? Sounds yummy. Where do you buy it? The apple heart is adorable.

  9. Pamela, Welcome and thanks so much for stopping by. I actually have a miniature almond tree in the back yard that one day I hope will produce enough almonds so that I can make my own butter. In the meantime, I buy it at a fresh nut butter bar in my local Safeway Grocery Store. It is supposed to have great health benefits. I visited your very special blog and enjoyed reading some of your thoughts and learning a bit more about you. I look forward to visiting again. ~Blessings, Janet
