Quote of the Day

More and more in today's world, I see people being unkind, or downright mean to other people, especially when it comes to religion or politics.  Don't be that person! We all have different personalities, likes, dislikes, experiences, beliefs and opinions. Not everyone is like us, or thinks like us!

Kindness is something that all of us can choose! Get up each morning and tell yourself that you will "be kind" to those around you! Even a smile and a hello will do!

Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Sweets, treats, or desserts differ for each of us. For many of us its salty foods, for others its sugary foods, and for some it is both. Deprivation makes us want treats more. Is there a way to incorporate treats into our lives without going hog wild?
