Girl Stuff... You're Not the Only One

Do you ever feel like you're alone when it comes to certain things? Like how you feel at "that time of the month"? If you're like me, these pics summarize pretty well.


Now you know, you're not alone. :)

I must say, there is one thing I'm so thankful for when it comes to the roller-coaster of emotions portrayed above: They are temporary. Yes, they come each month, but once it is all over, I am so thankful. I feel so grateful for my health.

My chiropractor recently gave me some Estrovera. The main ingredient is a type of rhubarb root. It is supposed to help balance the hormones. I just recently started taking it, so I have not seen any results yet. If you suffer from some of the symptoms as the pin above described, maybe consider talking to your chiropractor or medical doctor about options like Estrovera.

And something I'm needing to work on: Praising God amidst the storm. And yes, I would say the above is a storm in a girl's life. But God is good. All the time.

Agreed?

4/14/14 Update: I have now been taking the Estrovera for about a month and can testify that my PMS symptoms seemed to have decreased greatly.

Food Should Taste This Good Review


Food Should Taste This Good sent me a box containing 4 bags of their chips in exchange for my doing this review.


The chips are gluten free, cholesterol free, and trans fat free.  Food Should Taste This Good holds to a non GMO commitment, which is posted on their site.

Olive Tortilla Chips: They were really good. They were my favorite of the 4 varieties I got to try. They were crunchy and flavorful. Almost spicy in their flavor, but not quite. Just flavorful enough.

Salt and Pepper Sweet Potato Chips: If you like sweet potatoes, you are bound to like these. They have the same sweet flavor. The chips had just the right amount of spices.

Barbeque Sweet Potato Chips: If you like barbeque chips and you like sweet potato, you will enjoy these.

Kettle Corn Tortilla Chips: They were quite sweet. If you like kettle corn popcorn, I think you'll enjoy them.

Food Should Taste This Good also offers MANY other varieties to try, including 20 varieties of tortilla chips and 5 varieties of sweet potato chips. Plus they offer Pita Puffs and crackers. Personally, I didn't care for the sweet potato chips, but I think anyone who has a taste for sweet potatoes will.

I've tried their Jalapeno Tortilla Chips a different time and they were really good and spicy! 

And guess what? They have CHOCOLATE Tortilla Chips! Check them out.

Good news is, even if you don't have a store close by that sells Food Should Taste This Good products, you can order many of their products on their website.

And check out their site for dip and salsa recipes that go with Food Should Taste This Good chips!

Follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook!

Disclosure: I was given 4 bags of Food Should Taste This Good chips in exchange for this review. However, all opinions and reviews are my own.

Tide and Tempest Book Review

Cover Art

I was recently given a copy of Tide and Tempest by Elizabeth Ludwig from Bethany House Publishers to review. Tide and Tempest is book three in the Edge of Freedom series. Other books in the series include No Safe Harbor and Dark Road Home.

Tide and Tempest was intriguing right from the start. There was a hint of mystery. As the story got going, especially by the middle of the book, the suspense really picked up.

The characters, especially the main characters Tillie McGrath and Captain Keondric Morgan, were unique. It was easy to feel for them through the struggles they faced, as they seemed very real.

The characters are thrown into dangerous situations time and time again, keeping the reader at the edge of their seat. I enjoyed that suspense, as well as the tender moments between Tillie and the man she comes to love. The historical context of the book also kept me engaged. It was really a great combination of suspense, history, and romance. Elizabeth Ludwig did a nice job at weaving those elements into Tide and Tempest.

I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys suspenseful and/or historical reads.

Strawberry Nectarine Smoothie Recipe


I like my smoothies. Normally I make them with bananas, but this time I used some frozen strawberries, and some nectarines I had frozen this fall.


Turned out delicious. Want to try it?

Strawberry Nectarine Smoothie
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 10 drops lemon Stevia (or any other flavor you prefer)
  • 1 partially frozen nectarine, halved
  • 1/2 cup partially frozen strawberries
  • 3 ice cubes

Before you make the recipe, put your strawberries and nectarine in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. Or you can use solid frozen, but the consistency may be thick. 

Put all of the above in a blender. You can either remove the skin from the nectarine, or leave it on. I did it both ways, and they each worked well.

Blend together.

Take a sip. Good, isn't it?

Bring on summer!
