What is Whole Grain Rice?
After rice is harvested, its inedible hull must be removed, resulting in a whole grain (often brown) rice kernel, ready to cook. If the rice is milled further, the bran and germ are removed, white rice is the result, with lower levels of nutrients.
Rice is often classified by size and texture. There’s long, medium and…Continue

And that got me to thinking about how we’re teaching our own little guy real values and beliefs to fall back on. While it’s not a conversation we have all the time, Rick and I had some pretty serious talks about the values we wanted to emulate for our own children back when we first got pregnant with Ricky. They still come up from time to time – but I think the fact that we try to live through our values is more substantial than just talking about them.
So last night it kind of struck…Continue

Good morning friends,
So, most of you know me as one to send positive messages and thoughts to my friends and loved ones. To cherish every moment. Hold dear all that is precious to you. You have also learned in the last couple of weeks, that this “inspiration” didn’t just spring from nowhere. It came from years and years of “tests” and life “lessons”. I appreciate…Continue

This is the first time I have ever tried a 5 hour energy shot and to be honest I was very skeptical. First I was wondering how can this little bottle give me energy if 5 hours and secondly is it going to taste good. I was always told that they taste horrible.
When I got the courage to take it I was very surprised that it didn't taste bad. Then it seemed like almost immediately I had energy! I was so ready for work and to take on the day! The energy seemed to last…Continue

I suffer from random migraines. Every time I have one I am tossing and turning in my bed and just don't want to get up! But when I take a Fast Acting Advil Film-Coated I say "What migraine?" This stuff works fast and I only need two for all day relief! After taking these I know I can take on the day. One other thing I noticed is the taste, THEY DON'T TASTE BAD AT ALL!
If you are one that suffers from migraines, back pains, joint pains, or any other pains you may…Continue

The greatest experience in my blogging journey has been reading the stories other amazing bloggers choose to share. Their words have inspired, encouraged, and prove that behind every face is a personal story waiting to be told. I would like to introduce all my readers to three of my favorite ladies which I have met through writing. One chases her own joy where she shows grit, determination, and a whole lotta heart. Another is a living testimony to finding the spirited life in the everyday…Continue

I am always baffled when parents can't understand why their kids do what they do. It is as if the parent has completely forgotten that they were a child once themselves. There has been a disconnect between their "adult" life…Continue

Last week, the Fall 2014 Athleta catalog arrived in the mail. It was intercepted by my husband (who happens to love workout gear). I was surprised to see him flipping through the pages when I walked in the house after work. The commentary that proceeded went a little like this...
Husband: "What is Athleta?"
Me: "Athleta, it is a GAP brand that specializes in workout gear."…Continue

I am a mom, and I have a job-one that does not involve being a mom.
I hate the term working mom, because we don’t call them working dads, do we? Yes. I understand the etymology of the term ‘working mom'; I am aware that once upon a time it was unusual for women to have full-time jobs.
“‘Working mom’ are two words that are becoming a little less dirty these days, since more women are choosing to work outside the home.”
That sentence just made me a little…Continue
