In the beginning of the year, my brother emailed me to tell me to check out the website Headspace. He said he was loving the quick start meditation program. I checked it out in the early days of my blog so I resurrected and added to the post. I saw that Headspace has been updated recently, so here is another update in case meditation is on your…

Sometimes, I do too many things at once, or get into a worry loop, and get exasperated or down.

I have never been to the Taste of Chicago. Why not ? Well, I don’t love crowds, eating when it is a zillion degrees and Chicago foods are not always the healthiest. Great news!

You may remember that I went to the Sweets and Snacks show and tried to meet as many healthy snack companies as I could. I previewed my finds that week. I have been working my way through some of the healthy snacks from there (and everywhere) and some other goodies. What do these three have in common?
