I love grains...love being vegetarian/pescatarian!

Being vegetarian has taught me to be very creative in the kitchen and especially since the hubby isn’t vegetarian. We haven’t cook meat in our home for over 5 months. He’s a vegetarian at home lol. But once in a while we’ll have seafood and this happened to be one of those nights. So lets start with beverage, we had jamaican sorrel. For grain and veggies I had mango barley salad, tropical quinoa salad, sautéed kale with peppers and stuffed shell with broccoli. My hubby had all this topped with teriyaki tilapia…our dinner was amazing, hope yours was too.

Being vegetarian/Pescatarian can be very affordable!

So on this path one thing I’ve been enjoying so far is I get to food shop way more and yet spend way less than I would normally on grocery. This weekend the hubby and I went food shopping and only spent $9.00. Great deals always on fruits and veggies. These are just what we bought and great deals included ten mini bananas for $0.50, not each! But all….pretty awesome if you asked me. To God be the glory, great things he’s doing in my tummy😊.

WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT: VALENTINE’S DAY OR BLACK HISTORY MONTH?

OK SO I’M TOTALLY CONFUSED. SO THE MEDIA HAS DEFINITELY BEEN UP-SELLING VALENTINE’S DAY AND ALL ITS GLORY. I RARELY HEAR ANY MENTIONS OF WHAT OUR GREATS HAVE DONE TO CHANGE OUR CULTURE AND THE AFFECTS IT HAS HAD ON US THEREAFTER .

My husband and I do NOT celebrate ” VALENTINE’S DAY”. Don’t get me wrong, I did fall for the romantic ideas and gestures at a younger age. But life does teach you your greatest lessons. I remember our first valentine together, of course I was expecting a gift or some big grand gesture. Then my hubby says, “babe if I’m  not showing you my love everyday, then something is wrong”. That’s when I got it, and Valentine’s day became irrelevant for me. There’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t tell me or shows me how much he loves me. That’s a work in progress, that requires all 365 days of each year to accomplish. Not just one mere day. Marriage is simply learning to love and be with someone for the rest of your life. It takes work, time and effort….not a mere day.

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her- Ephesians 5:25

The love of God is infinite, so why should man limit when to express our love to each other. Show me a bouquet of rose/flowers that lasts an entire year without watering it and I’ll be a believer again. Love requires nurturing and care.

Let’s focus on the Greats that gave every bit of love they had to make a change in our life, through their entire lives:
