My answer to Herbifit’s questions:

  1. How do you make dietry choices? What is important for you? I try to make decisions that bring me healthy nutrients and moderation. I do believe any “one food all the time” is not a good dietary practice and I try to bring as much diversity to my eating as possible (which often helps to ensure my nutrient intake)
  2. What is your favourite under-appreciated ingredient? Cinnamon for sure. I have begun to use is as a sugar substitute in many meals.
  3. Why do you write your blog? I like practicing my writing and I enjoy the sense of community that comes with sharing my piece of life with others.
  4. What is your favourite drink? Hmm….perhaps chai tea
  5. What book would you recommend everyone read? I really enjoyed “You are Not Like Other Mothers” recently. 
  6. What annoys you?  I like it when people try new foods even if they don’t think they will like it, I am of the mindset of life is too short not to try it.
  7. What makes you laugh? My husband every day and America’s Funniest Home videos is my guilty pleasure.
  8. Can you dance? Yes and I love to.
  9. If you could take just one thing from your house when it was on fire what would it be? Well if you could assure me my husband would make it outside, then I would take my puppies (they are a package deal)
  10. What is your favourite childhood memory?  Many family vacations to Ormond Beach, Florida
  11. What would you like to have written on your tombstone? She was loved and loving.
