The Simple Things

I think it’s important to take a moment each day and reflect on what you are grateful for because it is easy to get drowned in the stresses of daily life. Time flies and before you know it’s the middle of the year… and then the end. Maybe you haven’t allowed yourself to take a few moments of your busy schedule to sit in the “now” and appreciate the simple things you have been blessed with. Every day I try to remind myself that my son will only be little for a short amount of time and if I don’t embrace the moment (the good and bad) I will look back and wish I had done so.

The best things in life are free. In this present time of materialistic wants and always being connected to technology, we really have to make a point and search back to our roots to appreciate those free things – like love, friendship, family, a new harvest in the garden, etc – that often go unnoticed. When we ground ourselves with things that truly matter our souls will no doubt be enlightened and filled with gratitude. This sense of gratitude may radiate out of you and inspire people to do the same. Can you image a world filled with people who really take the time to acknowledge what they are grateful for?

Sauerkrauting It Up (My First Time Making It)

sauerkrauting it up
 
I know fermented foods are something everyone should be eating… however we don’t eat much. I wanted to make my own sauerkraut after my friend Meredith had me try the one she made. It was the BEST tasting sauerkraut… EVER.

She invited me to her house so we could have a sauerkraut making party although we got to talking so much before we even started that we had to rush through making the sauerkraut because Meredith had to pick her son up from school (not to mention juggling two toddlers as well).

Since we rushed through the directions, I went home with a “embrace all that may happen” attitude. To my amazement, making sauerkraut really isn’t that difficult!

Welcome to the Tuned-in Tuesday Blog Hop!

A place where like-minded individuals can spread non-conventional posts regarding but not limited to:

  • real food recipes

  • tips & tricks on how to live greener
  • real food journey experiences
  • gardening
  • DIY projects that eliminate toxins, chemicals and all other nasties

In a world full of deceptions, lies, confusions, and toxins it’s always nice to be able to go to a place where you know all the information won’t make you sick, fat, or unhappy.

Which brings me to a few simple rules I have for entering into this blog hop–

1. No industrialized Nasties: Please no recipes or topics that are related to or have industrial junk in it. That means packaged, processed, canned foods or anything that has to do with bad fats like vegetable oil, margarine, soybean oil. No foods that have artificial flavors or coloring. Any posts related to nasties will be deleted.

Just. Real. Clean. Food… kapeesh? We’re all happier that way.🙂

2. Please provide a link back to THIS post: It’s a common courtesy and we can all agree that it helps build readers for everyone. Make sure the link back is not to Healthy Roots, Happy Soul homepage but to the Tuned-in Tuesday blog hop.

3. Please include the link to your actual post: When you link-up make sure you give the URL for the actual post you are linking up, not the URL for your homepage.

4. Please leave a comment after you’re done linking up: Tell us what your post is about or if this is your first time here. Leaving a link in your comment is another way of ensuring someone to click onto your page.

5. Have fun: That’s the whole reason for this blog hop; to have fun, make friends, build awareness. If you enjoy reading someone’s post, don’t forget to share it with your circle. This is the only way we can help each other and build a stronger, more healthy community.
