Hello, again.

It’s been nearly a week since my last post. And that’s after posting daily for almost 5 months. I apologize for dropping off the face of the blog-earth. Here’s what’s been going on. My father suffered a stroke on Sunday. He’s improving, but has been in ICU all week. I met with my integrative doc […]

Saturday

Avocado fruit bowl for breakfast. I love these. Totally customizable. Today I used apples, oranges, pumpkin seeds, and a squeeze of lime juice.

Almost couldn’t finish it because it was so sweet and filling. The goat […]
