A delicious thing happened last summer

I always worry about finding healthy options when I am on vacation. I plan ahead as much as possible. I pack snacks, water, and protein bars. Sometimes I make my own. Then I only need to focus on breakfast, and dinner.

Dinners are pretty easy if you just think about lean and green. Skip all the rest. Breakfast on the other hand can be difficult.

Often you will see fresh fruit on the menu. Just make sure that it’s really fresh fruit and not canned. The photo above was offered on the menu. It’s a Belgian with Greek yogurt and fruit. So simple, filling, and packed with energy. It’s been a favorite breakfast of mine ever since.


Living in a Ala-Cart World

I understand why people, and food based businesses are feeding government workers.. I don’t understand why this isn’t done for all unemployed, children that can’t afford school lunches, the homeless. I just don’t get it.

We live in such a screwed up world, and we are the ones screwing it up.

I understand the need to belong, to be heard. I don’t understand why it’s so important to put down another when you are protesting, or trying to achieve your own goals.

I totally get being driven to buy the shiney new thing of the moment. Every holiday, every special occasion, every new thing. Just stop being sold to. The majority starts with one. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand why we are allowing ourselves to be so easily influenced.

I don’t understand why people care if Tom down the street smokes. I just don’t get it. Stop discriminating. Everyone is discriminating. Stop it. Many businesses won’t hire Tom if he uses nicotine. Seriously? That should apply to alcohol too. A drug is a drug. Nicotine, alcohol, prescription meds, street drugs, sugar. It’s ala cart, and people are discriminating against Tom.

As a cradle Catholic I dont understand why others still support the church. How can Jesus possibly be in a place that has harmed so many children. I’m pretty certain Jesus doesn’t support the church. I totally do not get it.

We have become a cafeteria world where kindness is given to some, empathy to few, and generosity only when it’s in the spotlight.
