Two things I want to write about: pineapples and walks.
First, I made a healthy angel food cake with pineapples this weekend. I have several family members that are now trying to lose weight, and I wanted them to have a healthy dessert on Sunday. We love having all of my family over for Sunday dinner after church. It is a great time to catch up on every one's life. My mom and I cook a big dinner and usually buy a dessert from a bakery. I did buy a double chocolate fudge cake for the kids and guys in my life :) Then I wanted a sweet treat for myself and family members that are trying to lose weight. I was so surprised by how much everyone loved the pineapple angel food cake. Even my husband, who had a piece of each cake, said he like the angel food cake the best. I found this super, easy recipe on pinterest: a box of white angel food cake and a large can of crushed pineapple with the juice. Mix together and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. I took some leftover pieces to my work friends and they loved it too.
Item #2 is my love for walking outdoors. I had missed four days due to my mother's health and the remnants of Isaac. When I can't go on my walk, I start to feel unhealthy and a little blue in mood. Walking isn't just good for my physical health but my mood too. It is the one thing I do for myself and it is a time to clear my head.
So I'm in love today with pineapples and walks. What helps you to feel better? Embrace whatever it is and enjoy :) Now, I'm off to sip on some acai and blueberry tea.
