Yay! It’s the weekend and I’m looking forward to it. Grab your coffee and let’s chat.
Healthy Living Blogs Tea Swap
I took part in this year’s tea swap sponsored by Healthy Living Blogs. If you haven’t visited their site, I’d highly recommend it for a great listing of blogs in this niche including yours truly.
I received two teas from Mary Beth at The Thrive Blog. I love that both of these teas are new to me plus organic. Thank you!
Have you heard about the #Wycwyc movement? It was started a year or two ago and now two of my favorite online friends, Carla Birnberg and Roni Noone, have published a book!
Mine just arrived and I loved it on page 1 (or whatever page the dedication was written). The movement is about healthy living on your terms. It is absolutely the way I live. You can buy the book at Amazon right now in print and I understand the Kindle version will be released April 28th.
Another Birthday Celebration
April brings a lot of birthdays in our family and this week brought my youngest son’s. For his celebration dinner he selected a new-to-me restaurant in the Bankers’ Hill area of San Diego aptly named Bankers Hill Restaurant.
The food is locally sourced and made with seasonal ingredients. The picture above is our appetizer, Meyer Lemon and Fennel marmalade bruschetta. It was delicious and as you can see was unique but not too far out of the box.
This is definitely somewhere I want to go again and experience more of the interesting menu.
Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe
Every week I make a batch of vegetable soup and then have one serving a day. Since I’m not a natural vegetable eater, it helps me get to five servings a day without too much effort.
This soup is very easy and contains just the three ingredients shown above and all were bought at Trader Joe’s. The ingredients are:
- quart of vegetable broth (I get low-sodium)
- Diced tomatoes with green chiles
- Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix
I saute the veggie mix for about 10 minutes with a tablespoon of oil to soften them. Then I add the other two ingredients. If I have extra vegetables in the fridge, I thrown them in as well. It’s really tasty, low calorie and healthy!
Last but definitely not least is a new artwork I received this week. My grandson, age 5, painted this water color of a guitar. I don’t think I could do as well!
That’s what has been going on around here. How was your week?
