Mandela, Rest in Peace

Friday, December 06, 2013

What can I say? Only that I am so grateful to have lived in this era of so much positive change effected by so many people. But Mandela has always been beside Martin Luther King as one of my heroes.

What a gentle, strong man. I can't even imagine how hard my heart would have been after being purposely, unfairly jailed for 27 years of my life's prime. I would have come out swinging. He inspired millions to do the right thing.

A friend who recently returned from South Africa said he could not believe how peacefully and genuinely cordially everyone of every race treats each other there. Oh boy, could we in the US learn something about softening our hearts after legislation has changed our way of life. Maybe some day...

Many of Oprah's guests say that we have been sent here for a purpose, that our job is to find out what our purpose is and to carry it out. I'm still trying to figure out what mine is.

Apparently Mandela did what he was sent here to do. And he did it well.

    He was one of the greatest men to walk the earth. Like you, I can't imagine going through his experiences and coming out the way he did! I wish he could help us in the US....we certainly need it!

I'm so grateful for the huge feats he accomplished.

Overnite oatmeal parfait

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I just finished making the simple overnight prep. This is going to be yummy! I didn't have lemon fat-free pudding, but I had vanilla so I just added a smidgen of lemon extract to it. And I had some non-sweetened vanilla almond milk and some honey vanilla Greek yogurt--they worked fine. Also I had old fashioned oatmeal. Next time I may try oat groats and chia seeds. (I just learned that we're supposed to grind chia seeds, the same as flaxseeds--I use a little coffee grinder.)

Tomorrow morning I think I'll add this mixture to strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sliced bananas and walnuts. Can't wait!

A truly inspired recipe. We do have some smart SP friends!


It was a super fantastic breakfast!!!!

An interesting "healthy diet" debate

Plant-based vs. starch-based diets

Interesting. I hope I can soon get to the stable point in my journey where I can tolerate a balanced mixture of whole grains into my eating plan. For now I have to limit my starches to one serving per day in order to lose weight.
