Spicy Pork Morsels with Baked Potato and Salad

Spicy Pork Morsels with Potato and Side Salad
Simply Delicious. This is a small plate with big satisfaction. I slow cooked the pork in a spicy mix. Almost any way you want to flavor up will work. Before the pork was fully cooked I took it out. Next, I sliced it up to keep it moist and tender on the inside. Then, just before serving I pan crusted it. Crispy morsels of pork are great served with so many things. This is paired up with 1/2 of a baked potato and a small side of salad. Both pork and potatoes are a great source of potassium. An added benefit to serving crispy pork morsels is that it's easy for kids to eat and they can be used as a topping too.

Fresh and Yummy Dip n' Snack

chili snack with crisp veggies

I love chili and this is made with black beans and lentils, plus a few veggies and some zinger chile sauce. You can use it as a dip, hot or cold, with some crunchy red bell peppers and cucumbers. Add a small dollop of sour cream for the best of all flavors without a bunch of calories. It's a great snack when you want something both fresh and hearty. Small portions of wonderful are still wonderful!

A Diet of Words

A Diet of Words Nutrition Label
We all consume a huge amount of words each day. What you say, read and watch can be nourishing or harmful to your health and well-being including those around you.

With so much emphasis on eating well, getting daily exercise and drinking plenty of water, people forget to consider the importance of mindful word consumption and delivery.

Is what you say feeding wellness to the world? Is what you read edifying? Is what you watch uplifting?

There is no auto-edit working in the background; you choose your word diet the same way you choose the food you eat.

The emotional impact of words cannot be underestimated. If you had a nutrition label for every word you say, hear or read, what would it look like?

The first ingredient is a good clue as to whether it is going to have a positive or negative impact.

What will you say today?
