Healthful Mind Body and Soul

Be Whole Body Healthly!


1 Comment



Over the past two years I have truly enjoyed sharing parts of me with you. I have decided to make the plunge into self hosted wordpress. So this site will have a new URL and new name, The Whole Serving, because my passion for food and cooking moves me to share good, wholesome, healthy foods that nourish the body and soul, without making you feel guilty about eating the whole serving.

Hey, I will still share health and fitness and other cool things.

And, there will be desserts, because life’s not the same without dessert.

I appreciate all of my followers and I hope you continue to follow and support.

For all of my wordpress followers you will continue to see my post in your reader, but to receive email updates you will need to subscribe on my new site.

It’s a little bittersweet to say goodbye to the old, but exciting to look ahead to all that’s new.

I adore you all and look forward to sharing so much more with you, my regular readers, blog buds, friends and family.

The change will happen over the next few days.

Thank you all for your love and support.

Life Happenings Lately


Life Lately It’s been a great summer so far. Started with the graduation of my daughter, Taylor, (the one on the far right). It doesn’t seem like it has been that long, but there she is a high school graduate, not just a graduate, but an honor graduate, I’m so proud of her.


I’ve also been enjoying an abundance of seasonal fruits. I’m loving it!


And this, it takes me back to my childhood. We used to buy the big coconut cookies for a penny and they tasted just like these.


Zoo trip.




The day we were there the animals were cohabitating, the zoo keeper explained that sometimes they let them play together.


A trip to Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum, turned out to be loads of fun with the school-age children at my early learning center.

I am making up for all the lost time when I couldn’t eat watermelon.


Infused water is a snap with my new water bottle, a gift from a vendor for my center.


I’ve been making this Strawberry Infused Lemonade , and it’s so good. My daughter and I are fighting over who gets the last drop. Check out the recipe HERE.


I hope that your summer is going well and you are having fun. Be Marvelous in Your Monday and check out Katie and more MIMM’s.
