10 Burgers for 10 Homeless

10 Burgers for 10 Homeless - We were having lunch the other day and saw a few people standing near the library we were walking by that looked like they were homeless, we thought maybe they were hungry too. Maybe they didn't have lunch? After a short conversation we went to the McDonalds across the street and grabbed 10 burgers to bring to them. No not the healthiest of choices but, I figured it's better than nothing, and if you haven't eaten in a couple days.... We met a man named Jeff, wh...

Summer Salads and Smoothies Wrap Up

I want to thank everyone for the warm and welcoming standing ovation at our Summer salads and smoothies event the other night. HAHA! Just kidding, just a little fun we had with everyone. I do want to thank everyone so very much for making the event a big success! Rhonalyn and Kristin for taking some great pictures and sharing them (and Julia for helping pass out the smoothies). I've already talked to a handful of members like Ashley who's been inspired and posting some awesome pics a...

A Man that Makes Birdhouses

So this might be a stretch but I thought I'd at least try to help out and reach out to our TRUE FORM community here to see if we could get more people involved. There is this older man at the market in Olds that makes bird houses by hand. I asked him how he was doing, he said he's doing ok. I said how is business, he gestured 'not so good'. Then he told me he'll try one more week and if he doesn't sell he'll move on. Kind of makes me sad, he puts all this time and effort into making these ...

Improving Your Quality of Life

What if we focused on quality of life instead of paying attention to all the distractions, all the noise and ideas marketing wants us to believe? What if we paid attention to improving our quality of life, and realized what makes us feel better, gives us confidence, even improves our quality of sleep? Instead of counting calories, and stepping on the scale every moment of the day, what if we looked in the mirror and were proud of the person who looked back, what if we put on a new pair of jea...

Changing Your Mood

You decide what type of mood you are in and no one else. It's true, we could let anyone ruin our day. We could let the guy that cut us off on the way to work control our entire day simply by allowing that one action to negatively affect us. Or we could let it pass and move on with our day. Thoughts are a big one, what are you thinking about, what usually puts you in a better mood and then there's the opposite. What are you dwelling on, what is festering and keeping you in a bad mood. We co...

Healthy Homemade Granola Recipes

healthy homemade granola recipe
Granola is always a nice option for a quick and easy breakfast. Especially for those mornings when you don't have a lot of time or you are heading out the door to work. These healthy homemade granola recipes have few ingredients which is great because most conventional store brands have a ton of ingredients even some that are not all that healthy for us to be consuming. The trick to baking granola is to cook it low and slow. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees and let it cook slowly over an hour...

Time isn’t relevant at all

Time is a funny thing. It’s relevant one might say. It’s almost comical listening to college students talk about time. Many college students don’t have a job when they’re in school, less college athletes have jobs. Very few have family responsibilities, meaning a spouse or children and the good majority of them go to class 3-4 hrs a day. Let’s pick on College Athletes because I was one. We/they went/go to school for a few hours a day, practice for an hour or two, might study for an hour and ma...

Guilt Free Coconut Chocolate Parfait

I was looking around the house for a healthy treat, I had no idea the treasure I was going to find in this guilt free coconut chocolate parfait. I think most of us could agree, the evening is the most difficult time to avoid unhealthy, sugary, processed snacks that don't do any of us any good. So I was thinking about what kind of healthy snack I could create. I know I just bought some Cacao that was sitting in the cupboard so I started flipping through recipes online. It's so difficult to fin...
