Spicy Eggs and Rice Hash
Dishes are always plentiful in the sink, and washing is done daily.
You use a knife and cutting board at least once (if not more!) a day.
Your pantry’s nearly empty, but your fridge is packed tight after a grocery shopping trip.
Your medications / spices are pretty much the same thing.
You don’t have to create a pile of trash every time you make a meal, and end up with a whole lotta composting material.
If you’ve ever struggled with weight loss due to stress and emotional eating,
an upcoming local Arizona workshop can help.
My workshop called “Coping with Food: Overcoming Emotional Eating” will be held on Saturday, Aug. 6, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at Herbalicious of Arizona (423 N Florence St, Casa Grande, AZ 85122). Cost is $20. Participants will learn how to recognize negative behavioral eating patterns, learn mindfulness techniques to help in identifying and dealing with stressful emotions and alter behaviors, and gain a deeper understanding about the mind/body connection.
It was the perfect end to a perfect day. It was a beautiful fall evening. The festivities had ended, and I was surrounded by every love of my life. A large group of us were sitting around in a semicircle around the fireplace in a bed and breakfast in Sedona in a post-wedding day stupor – me, my new husband and my dearest childhood friends (who had all flown in specially for the occasion). One of my closest friends–and the one who’d married my husband and I that day–I’d known since the first day of kindergarten.
It didn’t take long before we were laughing boisterously over dinner, singing, reminiscing, and embracing as if we’d all had too much wine (no, just drunk on each other’s company) – as the husbands exchanged looks, confirming, ‘Yup, this happens every time they’re together.’ Although we live nearly a continent apart, the five of us turn into teenagers again each time we are reunited, never skipping a beat in our deep, rich friendships. I didn’t want this night to end, and cried yet again at our parting …
Because these were the girls that saved my life.
Let me explain.
We all know how precious our friendships are. But so many times, life gets in the way and it could be weeks, months, even years between times when we get to see or speak to our closest girlfriends. Well, this month gives us an excuse to improve those statistics! Here are some great ideas to get you started in reconnecting with old friends (and making some new ones, too!).
Did you know girlfriends can add years to your life?
