Did You Pay It Forward Today?

I have been thinking about ways to always make a difference and contribution to society. How to make it a better place? Yesterday, as I saw a homeless man on the corner of Walmart, I watched another car pull up and offer him a meal. I decided, I can do that too. So I bought him a small snack inside the store and handed him a grocery bag of the items. The gratitude he gave me over something so small was priceless. It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside that something I could take for granted, was certainly not taken for granted by this man. Little things we do can add up. Just as I saw someone pull up and offer this man food, can example someone else to do that same, as it did for me. I hope someone saw me do that small act of kindness and want to follow the lead. While I don't believe in handing out money, I do believe handing out loving gestures of kind words or something tangible like food, can make a big impact on someone in need. I feel this way when I do visiting teaching as well. I love making another sister's day become better just by offering a kind word. Let's all strive to make this world a better place.


Healthy chicken and Cabbage Salad

Here is a great recipe for chicken and cabbage salad. Because I eat this so often, I thought I should share. You get a bag of shredded cabbage at walmart or any other grocery store. You add about 1/2 of a chopped apple or about a handful of sliced grapes and throw in some chopped cashew nuts or almonds. Add some chopped chicken and then chop up about 2 T. of cilantro and mint leaves. Squeeze some lime juice in there and last, for your dressing, add 2 T. of that vegainaise dressing you buy at healthfood store. It is made with grapeseed oil and taste great. If you would like to add anything else to this salad such as grape tomato, scallions, red onion, or cucumber, that works too!
