Easy Healthy Recipe and other Fun Things

Okay, so I have a so much I want to share with you, but one post at a time, right?

First, any easy dinner recipe to add to your menu this week:

(Inspiration from a Pinterest recipe)

Spring Orzo Salad

  • Orzo
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Feta Cheese
  • Balsamic Vinegar and Oil

Prepare Orzo as instructed on the box.  As orzo is cooking, slice tomatoes.  Sautee asparagus in olive or coconut oil.  Add salt and pepper.  As asparagus is cooking, add tomatoes (just for a minute).  Pour Balsamic Vinegar over the asparagus and tomatoes and mix together.  Once cooked, remove from heat.  Chop mixture and set aside.  Put orzo in a bowl, add asparagus mixture and sprinkle with feta cheese.  Serve and ENJOY!!!


Next up, I had an amazing surprise last week.  Here is an excerpt from an email I received:

“Hi Cheryl!

My name is Karen, and I work with the online programs at the University of Jacksonville’s Nursing School.Recently I have been following your blog, live fit daily and enjoy the healthy living tips! Because of the quality information you are providing to the online world about health, we would like to award your blog as one of the “Top Sites About Healthcare”. ”

WHAATTTT???  YAHOOO!!!!!  Please understand, I am NOT bragging; I am GRATEFUL .  A HUGE thank you to the University of Jacksonville’s Nursing School and to Karen for sending the email.  You can see the badge “of honor” on the right hand side of my home page.  All I have ever wanted was to encourage and inspire others and I promise, I am the one being encouraged-every single day!


Lastly, I have a friend to thank.  She has helped me with the blog, but really she has helped me with life.   I know her words of wisdom will be helpful to all of you, as they have been to me.

I am paraphrasing but she has often reminded me that, “Life is like a cocktail party.  Listen to others.  Be less about you and more about them.”   She has always encouraged me to enjoy building slowly.  Stay consistent.  Be patient.  Quality over quantity.  Thank you Rebecca Mitchell  for your great words of wisdom for so many areas of my life.  AND if you have any advertising or social media needs, check out her company!

Okay, so that almost catches you guys up on life.  Next comes the Cali trip!
