Healthy and High Protein and Delicious Recipes? Yeah, We Love Those!

If you know me,  you know I love good food. I’m also a big fan of recipes that are high in protein. I enjoy cooking, and my friend, Elaine, does too, so I invited her to share a post on my blog today. I’ve known Elaine for about a year and a half, and throughout that time I’ve watched her consistently work toward being healthy and strong, and she has more self-discipline in eating and exercise than anyone else I know. We’re different in some ways, but we love some of the same things as well. I’m so thankful to have a friend like her, and I’m also excited about sharing this recipe with you today. Here’s what Elaine had to say about her recipe: “This recipe uses a great new brand of pasta called Banza. Instead of pasta made from wheat flour, Banza is made from chickpea flour. This gives the pasta a lot more fiber and protein than usual pasta. The pasta is slightly chewier than regular wheat pasta, but it’s still great. The added nutritional value is worth the small difference in texture. Thanks to the combination of the Banza pasta, tuna, and reduced fat cheese, this […]

Family, Love Updates, Grown Up Coloring and Hand Knitting

Last week had some bright moments and some not so bright moments. I talked about the rough part here last week, and I’m happy to say that we talked today. I didn’t know that I was going to see him, but I’m glad I did. I was able to share my thoughts and feelings (and French press) with him, and I was filled with a sense of relief when I saw him. He was relieved and happy to see me tooI don’t know what the future holds, but I’m happier today than I’ve been in the last week.

Love and Loss, Or Something Like That

I’ve been pretty quiet about the fact that I’ve been seeing someone. I met him at the beginning of the year, and I allowed our relationship to grow offline for several reasons – the most significant being that it’s easier to develop something when others aren’t constantly inserting their opinions.

He’s handsome, easy to talk to and loves (our) Starbucks as much as I do. He’s older than I am, even-keeled and patient. He told me that he loved me before I was willing to say it, but I’m in love with him too. He has made significant efforts to show me, and I’ve never felt so emotionally and physically connected to someone at the same time.
