Herbed Strawberry Banana Bowl

I have included fresh Thyme and Basil in this bowl. Thyme has properties that help you recover from viruses and Basil has an antioxidant (linalool) which is antiviral, antibacterial and pain reducing. A delicious recovery bowl for colds and flu.

Love Yourself

Today, it is easy to look at what is missing in our romantic lives. Focus on the love & friendships that you are blessed with. Cherish the people that stand by you. Make today the day you love yourself.  The only way to become your best you, is to fill your mind and body with love and positive self talk. Light cancels darkness every time. Be your own light, create the life you want, and share your life with people who bring their own light.
