real energy

Today’s inspirational spark:

Prayer does not use up artificial energy, doesn’t burn up any fossil fuel, doesn’t pollute. Neither does song, neither does love, neither does the dance.

down memory lane

Sometimes to get a real sense of where you are it helps to think of where you’ve been.  Sure we can think of all of the hardships we’ve endured, but we can also think of the happy times.  If you went down memory lane, what would you find?

a spring in your step

Oh the joys of walking barefoot in the grass!  Perhaps this Spring season you’ll walk on some grass and have a spring in your step, too. 🙂

YouTube Description: Cows belong in fields. We have known it for a long time. And the cows agree!  In March 2012, we visited a farm in the UK to film cows being released from their indoor winter housing to their fresh pasture for spring and summer grazing.  As you will see from the video, the cows could not have been happier.

good carbs

Here’s my quick recipe for a fully loaded (vegetarian version) potato:

Potatoes: I washed a couple of potatoes, poked holes in them with a fork, put them in a medium bowl half filled with water, and then used the “Baked Potato” function on my microwave.

Topping: In a fry pan, I sauteed a chopped onion in some olive oil and then added a can of drained (and rinsed) black beans along with a can of drained “Mexican style” tomatoes (diced tomatoes with peppers mixed in).  Other veggies like corn can be a nice addition.  As for seasoning, it’s your choice.  I happened to go with Weber’s New Orleans blend.

Once everything was cooked, I added some plain yogurt on top and ended up with this:

Not the most prettiest of dishes, but yummy enough to finish it off:

Enjoy! 🙂
