My 4 year old daughter loves to point out that "the sun is setting in the western sky," just like in the book Goodnight Cowgirl. A few of my blog times have been interrupted as I have had an opportunity to teach, "no Zoe, the sun is rising, in the eastern sky." Day 5 went well and ended the challenge. But fear not. This is only because, as is common for most people, SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS. When we experience (feel, believe, witness) success, it motivates us to want more. Yes, I had embarked on a 10-day challenge, I have now turned it in to a 28 plus 5 day challenge.

Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno…  The kids love this one!  In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook ground turkey, venison or extra lean hamburger meat, carrots, onion and garlic until browned.  Add chicken or vegetable stock, tomatoes, pasta and basil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until pasta is al dente.

Try this recipe on the weekend and refrigerate or freeze for lunch or dinner the following week on days that are too hectic to cook.  I would suggest investing in a vacumn food sealer so that you will always have access to a healthy low carb meal. Place chicken pieces in large baking dish.  Sprinkle with pepper and oregano.  Lay onion, mushrooms, and celery on top of chicken pieces.  Pour in 1/2 cup of water to cover bottom of dish.  Spread tomatoes over chicken, and top with sprinkles of basil and parsley.  Bake at 325 degrees for two&

Sometimes chocolate is added to Mexican dishes to cut the heat and enrich flavor.  In this reipe, it adds richness and deepens the color without making it sweet.  I use dark chocolate because studies show it has added health benefits.1 pound ground lean round, turkey or venison (I sometimes use ground lamb or veal from the natural meat section at HEB.)1 cp prechopped onion (short on time, use the dried onion)1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic, undrained1 cp hot water2 tbsp chili powder

What do most people imagine when the word “yoga” comes to mind? They envision twisting up like a pretzel, right?

It’s never too late to improve your strength and flexibility. Inflexibility, soreness, and exhaustion due to lactic acid build up in the muscles are released when you stretch by safely flowing from one yoga pose to another.
