Lately things have been a little sleepier than I like it here on the blog. Sorry about that. More recipes, stories, and nutrition info are on the way. I promise. I’m nowhere near out of ideas and just try to keep me from sharing them! This just happens to be a crazy busy time around here.
As you may already know, I’ve recently teamed up with my friend Erin (of Allgood Eats) to offer a series of Cooking, Health & Nutrition Workshops at The Herbal Path in Dover, NH (November 12, 2010 – January 8, 2011). We’ve been doing a lot of work lately to prepare for and promote the series. We spent a couple days doing meet-and-greets at The Herbal Path. It was great to spend time there, share our homemade food with customers, and meet some wonderful new friends. Next up on our schedule is a holistic treat for the Halloween weekend: the Holistic Health Fair in Sanford, Maine, this Saturday, October 30th. We’ll be at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Sanford from 10am until 3pm, so if you’re in the Seacoast region, come on by. We’ll have free homemade food samples (granola, kale-dusted pumpkin seeds, cranberry-apple sauce), yummy food (pumpkin pie made with heirloom long pie pumpkins, frittata with kale, onions, shallots & goat cheese) and hand-blended tea for sale, and tons of great nutrition & cooking info. Plus, we’d love to chat for a while.
And best of all (for me!), I have a good friend and fellow holistic health-nut coming to visit this weekend. We’re working on a new business idea with another friend of ours. It’ll be a bit longer ’til we roll out our new program, but let me just tell you that there are great things to come. So stay tuned, friends!
In the meantime, have a cup of tea and consider starting a gratitude journal. All you have to do is get yourself a small notebook and sit down each day — either when you wake up or just before bedtime — and jot down 3 things you feel grateful for. I love doing this. It sounds simple, and it is!, but it’s also profound. We tend to focus so much on what’s wrong, what’s missing in our lives, and what we desire. Spend a little time acknowledging and rejoicing in what and who you have already. You can always find something you’re grateful for, even when things are the toughest. Have a grateful day!
