Summer Salads

HAPPY Mindful Monday!!!

Warm Sun, Cool Waves, hmm it sounds like the only thing you're missing is a refreshing snack!!! As a Faith First Foodie - I love to embrace as I listen from within AND yes that also includes my food prep time. So I asked the question "what can I learn from preparing this salad?"

And just like that I heard God say "life":

"What we put in will impact what we get out, and TODAY your input can bring new life! - Life changing thoughts, feeling, restoration and yes enjoyment."

Is there anything in your life that needs to be revitalized? Maybe it's a relationship, a new way of thinking or simply re-establishing your goals.

Today I invite you to join me, and lets take those necessary steps towards Total Health all while we rejoice and embrace the diversity of life - YES - including this "LIFE" giving Salad.
