Fettuccine Alfredo with Zucchini – A Vegetarian Receipe

This recipe is adapted from Shine.yahoo.com and it’s a healthy, good alternative to the ‘old’ butter and cream original.  I like this better. It’s rich, flavorful and downright YUMMY! This recipe feeds 4. Well, unless you’re my husband and I and then it feeds two. 😉 FETTUCCINE ALFREDO with Zucchini 1 1/2 c vegetable brothContinue reading “Fettuccine Alfredo with Zucchini – A Vegetarian Receipe”

Abuses

(This blog is a continuation of my previous blog entitled, ‘Abuse’.) And take back my Power I did. It wasn’t easy though. Don’t be fooled into thinking it was. I had opted for divorce over suicide. Good decision, don’t you think? But you have to understand, when you’re in something that is so harmful andContinue reading “Abuses”

Abuse

Last night I was privileged to sit in on the last session of an 8-week Wellness program. I wasn’t expecting the reaction I had. When the group was asked what progress they had made, one beautiful fighter said, “I’ve lost 190 pounds. This morning, after years and years of trying and struggling, I asked myContinue reading “Abuse”

Impatience

Man, I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I have reverted back to being over-the-top impatient. I’m not impatient on everything, just stuff that I think should have happened by now. Here’s why I think impatience happens; I think we become impatient because we’ve glimpsed something we desire very much but it has yetContinue reading “Impatience”

Alien

I recently had a client who was not from this world. Literally. She was not from planet Earth. I’m not talking about her physical body. I’m talking about her soul. It’s not the first time I’ve encountered a ‘Superior Being’ (my terminology) in my line of Work, but they are a rarity and beautiful toContinue reading “Alien”

Career

There were two professions I wanted to be when I grew up. The first was a nurse.  Well, the nurse idea bit the bullet long before it was a full-fledged glimmer in my eye. I thought I wanted to be a Candy Striper at a local hospital. You know, deliver some flowers, get an extraContinue reading “Career”

Agnostic

Melissa’s Note: I didn’t start out writing the blog that this became.  In truth, I was tired of repeatedly hearing the word “agnostic” and decided it must be the Word of the Month that my Guys wanted me to pass on to you.  I even looked up the meaning in the dictionary (see below), butContinue reading “Agnostic”

Protein

Before I could even get the preliminaries out of the way, I was hearing loudly and frantically that my client needed to eat more protein. The Guys are usually softer and quieter in their approach but when they’ve been trying to get your attention, you get ‘punch in the gut’ loud and blunt.  So forContinue reading “Protein”

Perkins

We were returning from a family vacation and were hungry so we decided to stop at Perkins. It was an easy on, easy off for the two road warriors plus une petite bebe. We sat at a table like every other table. Our server was sweet and efficient.  We entertained our daughter with crayons and cheerios.  She, thenContinue reading “Perkins”
