I was at my local grocery store, Festival Foods and a bright colorful pamphlet caught my eye!
A portion of it read:
"Navigating all of the nutritional information in a grocery store can be pretty complicated.
That’s why NuValTM Scores are on all kinds of foods, from apples to cookies,
from yogurt to noodles to tuna.
The NuVal Score helps improve you and your family’s
overall nutrition with the foods they already eat."
I LOVE IT!
A health conscious grocery store with like-minded
goals such as my own!
Check it out next time you shop Festival.
If this is not available to you perhaps you could be the one to encourage such information to be implemented in your home town!

This was sent to me by a reader. So I thought I would share...
We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another.
Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are.
After that we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with, we will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.
We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice vacation, when we retire.
The truth is there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?
Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred D Souza.
He said, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."
This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness.
Happiness is the way, so, treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time... and remember that time waits for no one.
So stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you die, decide there is no better time than right now to be happy...
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Here I used dried cherries & pears.
Remove fruit and throw in 2 c. raw nuts (your choice)
I used pecans.Remove nuts...
And then slowly add the nuts and fruit together.
Until it looks like this...
Form into golf-sized balls & roll in unsweetened coconut
or chia seed. (optional).
The girls LOVE to take these in their lunches!
Super Easy to make!
