Hello All, Happy New Year!
 
It isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you down. It’s the pebble in your shoe.” -Muhammad Ali
 
Muhammad Ali said a lot of ground-breaking things, but this one really stood out to me. A pebble in your shoe is something you can control that is very miniscule in the grand scheme of things. If you look at your life and look at the bigger picture, your diet is something that you truly have complete control over. Why not take advantage of that? Move it out of the way because it’s causing you to crawl when you could be running to your dreams.
 
Setting goals and achieving them are two very different things. If you’re like me, you like to set goals that seem impossible to actually achieve them.

Tropical Pan-Seared Salmon | mercury

Mercury can cause serious neurological complications that are sometimes irreversible, especially for pregnant or nursing women. I will go into more of that later. This was one of my contributions this week. Extremely delicious. Y’all know how I do. Let’s go:  Continue Reading

Stir Fry For the WIN! | vegetables

Now, doesn’t this just look festive and delicious!? I LOVE when I randomly choose something to create and it’s colorful and pretty! lol. Okay, so this was a huge hit. I had someone taste it who DOESN’T EVEN LIKE STIR FRY. His response was: first, pure silence. You know food is GOOD when you’re just silent and relishing the meal. Then he said:

“man, I don’t even like dishes like this but THIS is amazing; the thing I love about it most is you don’t have to add anything to it at all. No salt, pepper, just nothing”
