Here is a recipe for Turkey in turmeric sauce. Turmeric, an anti-inflammatory, is a main ingredient in Indian curries, but it’s not the spiciest or even the strongest one. With its bright yellow color, turmeric pairs beautifully with poultry and fish. Its mild flavor goes well with garlic. Turmeric is a natural pain killer and can help with arthritis, along with many other health benefits!

I'm resurrecting this recipe from one of my January posts. I make this soup for dinner every Halloween. It has become somewhat of a tradition to enjoy this soup in between answering the door to pass out candy the little ones in the neighborhood.
It's healthy, vegetarian-friendly, and delicious! Happy Halloween! Enjoy!

Halloween is here! I'm still a bit surprised that we are wrapping up the month of October, but I suppose it couldn't last forever. Due to some unseasonal snow fall in my area, a few towns have postponed trick or treating. I know some people are aggravated at the delay, but it is truly in the best interests of the children -- to provide for their…

Fall is my favorite time of year. We had the most incredible fall day today... our typical warm weather at the end of October.
My dear friend was just released from the hospital on Friday after her second surgery in the past month. I brought some homemade butternut squash soup over to her last night as a little recovery gift. She'll be recovering for the next several weeks and is still on IV antibiotics at home, making it difficult to shower. All she wanted to… Read more

Sometimes in life we have to make tough choices if we want to grow and live the life we know we are meant to live. We may have to give up a part of ourselves that we have grown comfortable with, even if we know that it isn’t the self we want to bring on our journey.

Over the past couple of decades, the muffin has evolved into a sumptuous breakfast item in a number of fruity and sweet varieties. Gone are the days of dense bran muffins. Muffins have progressed into baked delicacies that are tasty but not necessarily healthy. The rule of thumb is that anything that looks like a muffin can be eaten in the morning with a… Read more

It is hard to believe October is quickly wrapping up. Halloween, once a distant holiday, is turning the corner and will soon be behind us again. It is such a lovely season - my favorite, by far. I have made great attempts to really connect with nature this fall and have felt an increase in optimism and positive thinking by doing so. This weather offers extensive… Read more

You know how people like to categorize you into what “type” you are for just about every aspect of your life? Well, for exercise, I suppose you could say that I’m a runner. At least I try to be. The point is: running is the main ingredient to my fitness routine, my “go to” for a good, hard workout.
Like some of you, I have learned from reading and experience that your body eventually becomes accustomed to a workout if it is constantly repeated. In order to maximize your… Read more

Wow! I have been sick. Sick as a dog sick. Sick, as I never want to be sick again for sickness sake sick. It all started out innocent enough. A cold. A tickle. An annoying drip. Who knew what a drip could do? Well, if a drip of water over millions of years could produce the world’s most humongous stalactites, I guess a drip in my throat for a month could build up just as well. So, perhaps there is a stalactite in my chest. Sure felt like one. A crushing, pressing, invasive, stalactite.

Good Afternoon Friends!
From the Mind of Aberdeen --
No Show for Snow? What an interesting day. Fairly chilly, but no signs of snow yet. I have been patiently waiting. In the words of Michelle - this is New England, so who knows what will come. The first snowflakes of the season are always so exciting to see. Perhaps skiing will be sooner this year than I expected!

Recently, a friend asked me why I thought my cereal was preferable to her cereal. She compared the stats of fat, fiber, protein, and carbs of each and found them to be comparable. Unfortunately, reading the nutritional information is not enough when it comes to making healthy food choices. It is also important to read the ingredients. My friend's cereal is what Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food and Food Rules, would call an "edible foodlike…

Who doesn’t want to be happy? To assume that someone doesn’t want to be happy is like assuming that people don’t want the air that they breathe in that gives them life. It seems at times that we’ve become a society, which constantly chases happiness. We think that money will give us happiness (and, yes, to a certain extent it does). We also think that if we lose a certain amount of weight or follow the latest food fad, we’ll be happier than ever… Read more
