Livin’ the Life


I truly am blessed to have the people I have in my life. Not only are they kind and amazing people, they think of me when they are going out for the day. Yup, that includes boat rides on a sunny Sunday afternoon.


Yeah, you see that picture of the sailboat? That was taken from the boat. Gotta love it. I’m so grateful to get opportunities like this, especially knowing there are people who will live their whole lives never seeing the ocean, feeling the salty water on their skin, or have the chance to ride along the water.

I ended the day sunburned, yes. But it’s ok.

We even enjoyed lunch while docked up at Newburyport and could watch the people on land staring back at us. A few kids waved, others I could see climbing the trees in the park. One of the snacks we dined on was apples and yogurt dip. Delicious, light, and perfect on a hot day.


All we did to make the dip was gather up some Faye Total 0% Greek Yogurt, honey, and Reese’s peanut butter chips. Mix about three tablespoons of honey into the yogurt and a quarter cup of chips. Mix. If you feel it needs more chips or honey, go ahead and add it in. There is no wrong way to make this. It’s all about what tastes good to you! And it’s portable, so it’s perfect for a boat ride. Yum!

Banana Breakfast Wrap


No eggs in the fridge; grab a banana and peanut butter.

That was the theme of today. Make something quick, protein packed and full of vitamins. Okay, well it has potassium. . . and chocolate. Chocolate for breakfast, I can’t say no. It was also only four ingredients, and no cooking required at all. It also particularly works well for on the go eating when heading to the gym.

Banana Breakfast Wrap

1 flour tortilla
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon low fat peanut butter
chocolate chips, sprinkle

Microwave flour tortilla for 20 seconds to soften it. Spread peanut butter onto tortilla, top with sliced banana, sprinkle with chocolate chips, and roll. Eat and enjoy.

Marshmallows – Chocolate Peanut Butter

Start with the basics.. oh yeah, and peanut butter too

I had a craving. I wanted peanut butter, chocolate, and marshmallows. So what do you do when you have a craving like that? Make something with all of it! So I melted some chocolate in the microwave until it was smooth, dipped in a marshmallow and put it on some wax paper. Into the fridge for 10 minutes and I pulled them back out. Microwaved some peanut butter in the microwave until it was smooth and dipped the marshmallows in that. Back into the fridge for 5 minutes. And then I had a snack! Nom nom!
