Choosing a nutritious healthy cracker can be difficult these days. Grocery stores carry many different brands and types of crackers and all of them claim to be healthy. However, they carry preservatives and other chemicals that do not contribute to good nutrition. I chose these three types of crackers because they appealed to my eye as nutritious. And although I read the label for calories and ingredients I didn't have knowledge about the ingredient "TBHQ for freshness" and simply passed over it and made the purchase.

Water kefir is a lacto-fermented probiotic beverage made with either kefir grains or a powdered kefir starter culture, sugar, and purified water. If you are watching your sugar intake, not to worry. Kefir grains are cultures of various strains of healthy bacteria and yeasts which are held together in a polysaccharide matrix created by the bacteria. The symbiotic relationship of the microbes produces a stable growing culture. The microbes feed on sugar and produce lactic acid, alcohol (ethanol), and carbon dioxide, yielding a fermented carbonated beverage.

The news has been buzzing lately with consumer anger about GMO labeling, and many people are slamming it as a deceptive scam that tricks people into eating potentially unsafe “frankenfoods.” Though the production of genetically modified food is a widely debated issue, the labeling of GMO products is broadly agreed upon – over 90% of Americans agree that genetically modified foods should be identified as such.

Peas, Beans, & Quinoa Salad
So happy to have found this recipe from simpledailyrecipes.com. I have come to love quinoa and I'm finding so many different ways to enjoy this super grain! There are recipes using quinoa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. How cool is that? This salad is scrumptious. I believe its the dressing that really makes this dish come together, especially the lime. You can enjoy it as a side dish or the main course as a salad by itself or you could toss a couple spoonful's in a tortilla wrap. Either way, you will be fully satisfied. Trust me!
Embracing Life - Come What May!
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, and to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

Who doesn't like an outdoor celebration such as a dinner party or wedding reception? Careful attention is taken to select the guest list, color scheme, table setting, music, and food to pull the whole event together. I especially like the uniqueness of style filled with personality - a little whimsical even and people reconnecting with old friends and relatives. Laughter, good conversation, and good food set the tone for creating memories that we enjoy as past times.
