Sweet and Chile Green Beans

Most of us go through our day-to-day thinking about food, planning for meals, celebrating with a specific dish, and sharing all over the social media for everyone to drool over. We picture casual meals done home to high-end restaurants featuring elaborate menus. Last weekend I had the opportunity to get to know a couple of farmers and hear about the growing season; all over an awesome lunch. It isn’t everyday that we have a chance to talk to some of the people who help produce the food we find in our local grocery store shelves.

Eating healthy all year round is something everyone battles with and I am not different. As a Latina I have a “yoyo” weight, I’m sure, like other women in other cultures do as well. I want to share with you some tips for staying healthy all year long that I have used and believe will work for you too. Plus, one of my secret weapons, a weekly meal planner (booklet).

One of the nights I enjoy a lot are girls night. Sometimes we make it to a location and enjoy a meal or wine tasting, but there are nights that all we want is to relax and get together at one of our homes. When we get together is not necessarily to talk about work or kids, but to share our ups and downs. Which includes our personal battles. We take some prayer requests home and pray for each other. When a prayer is answered we come back, share it and celebrate it. Regardless if the answer is a no. We have come to understand that when our payers are answered with a “no” it only means something better, that we can’t comprehend right now, is coming. This is awesome when done with a group of woman that are in the same page as you are and you can count on. I love these women in my life.

Peppermint Popcorn

As a kid I used to make popcorn in the stove. We didn’t own a microwave until I was a teenager. Everyone relayed on me for the making of the popcorn, I was very good at it. Just about every kernel popped and not one burned. Skills! LOL.

Nowadays I use the microwave and in seconds have a beautiful bag of popcorn in hand. Not that I would eliminate the old school way by any means. I love the process and enjoy the end results, either way I make it.
