Active/Healthy Mindset?

Monday, May 21, 2012

This weekend we were invited to several gatherings and I realized that my husband and I naturally gravitated to the more active/younger people at the gatherings because we had more in common with them...hmmm....now some were older than we are, but very active. We were talking about a wide range of subjects, but included were running, hiking, preparing healthy foods, new foods to try...

Makes me smile, and feel hopeful.

I tried some new vegetarian foods while eating out this weekend, vegetarian nachos...oh my...grilled vegetables, black beans...so good! I also tried a grilled portabello mushroom burger, I couldn't believe how delicious...I may never go back to beef!

I've been experimenting with using fresh herbs (from my planter garden!) in my cooking. I've got to say that fresh herbs really make a difference.

My husband and I also purchased new hiking boots for our trip to Estes Park, Colorado in July. I'm starting to get excited about the trip. I guess I need to break in my new boots before then? Any tips on how to break in hiking boots?

We also had some great conversations with our son this weekend. It's so nice to have him visit!

Sorry this is so random today, I'm having to take a lot of antihistamines for an allergic reaction to sunblock, grrr...

Hope everyone is having a great day! Try something new!

    Hi Sheri! Yes, love those veggie selections. Very yummy! It's amazing how awesome veggies can taste when you try different recipes with them. emoticon emoticon emoticon The hiking trip sounds awesome! To break in boots, I usually wear them around the house for a day or so and then gradually try wearing them outside for a while until you feel comfortable. So glad about your son! Woo Hoo! Here's to an awesome week! Way go to girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Interesting observation. So great to be able to be active at our age. Have a great day too! I'm planting my veggie garden today.
