You Asked About Buddha Bowls...

Since my last post about my new eating habits, several of you have asked about Buddha bowls. I love making these simple, one bowl meals.

I have a Pinterest board with several links here or you can Google "Buddha bowls" and find more.

For me, they are the simplest way for me to get lots of veggies, grains, and things I need to stay healthy.

The prep is usually very minimal (which I like!) and the results are yummy. If you try any of them I'd love to hear what you think.

Getting Healthy...

I haven't been around for a while because I'm concentrating on my health right now. I am trying to lower my blood pressure without medications. So far I've been doing this for a little over a month and it's down by about 20 points. I feel good about that but I have a long way to go yet.

This is my typical grocery shopping...lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Nothing processed (which I never used much of anyway.) I'm making a lot of Buddha bowls, which I love.

I take a tablespoon of raw unfiltered vinegar every morning. It's like taking a shot of liquor! It takes my breath away but I've heard it's very good for you. I also drink lots of hibiscus tea which I make from the dried flowers.

So if I'm not around right now you know I'm busy concentrating on me. I'm doing a little bit of art, too.

Three New Art Journal Spreads...

My art journal has been keeping me busy. I have three new spreads to share.

This one has a quote on the lower right side that reads:
"Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery"
~ Annie Dillard

I got a new stencil and had to try it out...several times!

The quote on this one says:
"You come to nature with all her theories, and she knocks them all flat."
Pierre Auguste Renoir
