Two Quick and Healthy Snacks

During the Winter I find it hard to eat healthy. Being a huge snacker I find it even harder to eat healthier. So, I decided to share two of my favorite healthy snack recipes. Here they are:

Peanut Butter and Yogurt:

This recipe is just like it sounds.


1 spoonful of peanut butter

1 6oz of your favorite yogurt.

Instructions: Take the spoonful of peanut butter and stir in slowly with yogurt. Once the majority of peanut butter is mixed in, ENJOY. I know this recipe sounds really weird, but I find it is really good. Especially, in the mornings right before work.

Turkey Roll Ups

Two slices of turkey deli meat

Your favorite hummus

Instructions: Lay out one piece of turkey deli meat. Take a knife and slowly spread the hummus on the turkey. Then roll up the piece of turkey with hummus. Repeat and enjoy. I know this recipe calls for two pieces of turkey, but you can enjoy as many turkey roll ups as you want.

Lent Challenge

No photo description available.

Today is Ash Wednesday marking the beginning of Lent. The next forty days many people will go without something they love and Catholics, like me, will forgo eating meat on Fridays. Every year I have logged into Facebook to see of a garbage bag filled with clothes. Underneath the bag it says, “Every day for Lent put a piece of clothing you don’t wear anymore in a garbage bag. Then you will have gotten rid of forty pieces of clothing.” Someone who I know has done this for years now. Today I started doing it and to be honest, I got rid of more than one piece of clothing. In fact, my garbage bag is almost full already and we aren’t even twenty-four hours into Lent. I thought I would share this nifty challenge with you as it is a way to clean out and donate something that many people need so dear. I don’t know where I am donating to yet, but I will share more after Easter.

Happy Mardi Gras!

A few years ago I took a trip with my dad to New Orleans, Louisiana. The city is know for it’s jazz, food, and haunted history among other things I could right about. But, today is the day before Ash Wednesday, commonly called Mardi Gras. Down in New Orleans there are usually parades and parties being held. However, due to COVID-19 many of those celebrations aren’t going to happen until next year. I was happy to see many houses being decorated and to see the residents find another way to celebrate Mardi Gras. One day I do hope to go down to New Orleans for the real Mardi Gras celebration. I don’t know how old I will be, but I heard that it is a fun loving time. To all those who are celebrating Mardi Gras down in New Orleans I hope you stay safe and well.
