This week I made a big step forward for myself.  I made the commitment to begin classes to become a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner.  A new door has opened and it is time for me to walk on through!  When I completed the application, I just knew in my heart that Rick would approve of my quest for further learning and knowledge....knowledge that hopefully combined with my passion for food, will be a splendid tool for helping others. 

The timing of this new beginning is sublime, as my youngest will soon be departing for college....I am dreading his departure and am trying my hardest to hide my emotions from him.  Another good-bye.  I have been a mother for the last 27 years of my life.  I was born to be a was what I always wanted to be when I grew up!  Not a teacher, not a nurse or a doctor...something far more important, a mother.  (Well actually a wife and a mother, but that just hasn't always seemed to work out for me!)  Yes, I will always be a mother to my boys, but it isn't the same when they are no longer under your wing.  They have new adventures and lessons to learn on their own.  They have always made me proud and I will always be their number one cheerleader...however, it is now time for me to be cheering from the sidelines.  My work has been done.   (Not gonna lie...this paragraph required a tissue!)

A busy agenda will be a necessity!  I am going to start gathering every piece of knowledge that I can find regarding nutrition as it relates to our health and well being.  Much of my passion will be leaning towards prevention.  Rick and I learned many things regarding food and nutrition during his journey with cancer.  I need to take that information and share it with others.  For me, it seems as simple as getting back to the basics.  Cooking fresh and clean.  My kitchen will become my and developing healthy, flavorful recipes.  A friend has already thrown out a challenge to me...don't just tell me that it is good for me, show me. Challenge accepted. 

I am looking forward to sharing as I learn.  I am going to try to slowly wean myself from my Marital Status:W blog and let some new fresh ideas shine into my soul...always knowing that my Rick will be beside me...cheering me on every step of the way!

Supps To Fuel Your Busy Day

A good place to start... This is what I will call my supplement sandwich...the sups I take every day; the crack to my action packed days.  lol Equi-Fem,  a great multi-vitamin for women...and for my guys out there,  Pro-Multi Plus  would be a good choice for you.  Read the ingredient list...nothing but pure goodness. If you want to be prepared to fight off those nasty cold and flu germs that are floating all around us this time of year, this little goodie is a must-have.  Since taking Bio-Immunozyme Forte , I have been able to successfully dodge all of those nasty colds I so often used to be plagued with.  I remember a friend saying, "Your sick again?!"  Well, not anymore.  This Multi supports normal, healthy immune function so you can fight off those bad germs like a champ! If I do start to feel like a cold is trying to set up camp in my body, I take an extra Bio-Immunozyme Forte for a couple of days and my symptoms quickly go away.  Victo

Pumpkin Doughnut Pleasure

Written for The River Current Publication      I think I have said this before, but I just have to say it again…I love all things pumpkin!   If one doesn’t share my love of pumpkin around this time of year, I suppose it could be a difficult thing.    All that one could do I suppose, would be to sit back and wait for the pumpkin madness to subside!   As we have slipped into the magnificence of a Mid-Western fall season, you will find in my kitchen simmering pots of pumpkin chili, pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees…well, I think you get the pumpkin picture!     For the last couple of weeks I have been craving a good pumpkin doughnut.   I have always been a huge fan of doughnuts, but in my quest for eating healthier, doughnuts are now a ‘once in a blue moon’ kind of treat for me.         I decided to try my luck at baking my doughnuts, rather than the typical fried version…making them a much healthier option.   What can I say…p
