Fork in the Road


It has been a week since I have sat down to share my random thoughts with my Butter Girl  friends.  What's up with that??  I have once again been in what I will call; A Readjustment Phase....or let's call it a Fork in the Road.
Funny, as much as I bickered and moaned about my school work and study time, I had no idea that it was actually serving a two-fold purpose for me.  Not only was I acquiring great nutritional knowledge, it apparently was also keeping me company!  Now that I no longer have the Study Monkey (I don't know why I called it that!) on my back, I find myself feeling a little lost. 
It appears that the silly Study Monkey had been my scape goat as well.  There were so many things that "I could not do", because I needed to study.  Always studying.  And now that I am done, dear Lord, I feel alone. 
No worries.  I will re-adjust.  I always have and I always will.  I just need to get in a new groove...take a long look at that fork and launch out in another new direction.  A new chapter so to say. 
I told a friend recently that I would like to get into 'that rut' so many people complain about and stay there for a while...a long while.  For those who chant..."Change is good!" haven't tried it like I have.  Always a bump in the road, followed by another fork.  I could have a whole set of cutlery at the rate I have traveled!
I spend most mornings cruising the Internet...looking for opportunities; a new road to travel with my nutri-knowledge.  (I love using the nutri prefix to my words niece and I laughed that I could get a vanity plate for my!) 
I am working on wellness workshops that I hope to launch next month (watch for further information). I am also checking on more classes....yes, maybe another monkey to keep me company.  I am still working on my kombucha/fermenting rest assured, there are many things to keep me busy. 
I have learned such great information, I just need to find a way to get out there and share it.  I will find a new road to travel; hoping...always hoping for better things ahead.

      SUPPLEMENT STORE GRAND OPENING   Well here it is....finally!  I have aspired for the longest time to make an addition to my website where you can order quality supplements.  REAL supplements vs. the pretend ones you pick up and throw in your shopping carts along with your toilet paper, light bulbs and frozen green beans at Wallie World! As a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, I am super excited to be able to offer these quality products to you.    Why do I want to make Biotics products available to YOU ?  Because they are REAL my friends, and to state it simply and honestly...they will make you feel great!  These superior products are all natural, organic, plant and animal based.   If you want to run like the wind from 6 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. every day like me...I suggest you give them a try!          More nitty gritty on these fabulous products:   Biotics Research Corporation has been a leading manufacturer of specially designed nutritional p

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


I have been inspired to create this blog, as a sort of 'branch' to my original blog... Marital Status: W .  I don't want others to think that my life is all about grief and sadness...I am forging forward with this new passion my Rick lovingly shared with and wellness.  I am exploring options and opportunities that will enable me to share my previous love affair with food in a more nutritious and appealing fashion.  I am still an avid foodie, I am just a foodie in transition. I was a little surprised when my post entitled, Butter Girl Goes Organic had more views than many of my other posts.  When I shared this with my vibrant hairdresser; she replied, "Well yeah, people probably think it is something kinky!"  Really??  Call me naive, but that never crossed my mind and honestly, I don't like to think of what that could even possibly mean!  Oh well, I like to pretend it is because others have an interest like mine...creating lifestyle changes a
