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...

Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowl

For my birthday supper this year, a good friend of mine prepared Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowls. It was extraordinary!! An explosion of flavour and healthy goodness in my mouth. I knew after that day that Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowls were going to become a part of my regular diet. How could they not?!?! The best thing about the Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowl is that it is soooo quick and easy to prepare and there is a variety of ways to prepare it. First, start with a cooked grain (quinoa, rice, lentils...

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...
