Pretty in Pink
HOW IT'S MADE
1) make cake, muffin, sugar cookie or any mix that is close to white
2) ADD FOOD COLOURING
3) BAKE and ENJOY!
"PINK!", was the answer when my mother asked what theme I wanted for my third birthday party. My wish was her command and she did not take the request lightly.
Everything, I mean EVERYTHING was pink. The balloons, the table cloth, my dress, the cake, the lemonade and even the bread of the party sandwiches.
I'm not sure if I thanked her at the time or if I just thought everything was just magically pink. However I do remember being as happy as a princess and everyone else was in awe. I had the prettiest, pinkest party in all the Richmond Hill land.
I will never forget the impression that party left on my life and the great ideas that my past has given my present.
TRY IT with almost any (white) baked good.
This is a picture of pink banana muffins, which would be adorable at any breakfast/brunch celebration for baby showers or a girl's birthday party. You can make blue or green if it is a boys party.

Being healthy should not feel like a priority. It should be something so simple that it causes no stress or doubt in your day. I am not saying you should be running everyday and eating the exact suggested portion of each of the food groups. I am not saying that if you walk outside or down the stairs that something bad is going to happen, or if you eat your vegetables you will live to see past 100. My message here is an obvious one. Appreciate your health.
I am sure you have read and heard lot about the severe health problems that come from ANYTHING.
...Too much stress causes heart attacks
...Looking at the sun can make you blind
...Too much (fake or real) sun can cause cancer
...Sports injuries can cause the inability to move
...Cracking your knuckles can cause arthritis
...You get the point, the list goes on and on.
Knowing that makes me think...
1) Love what I have in my life, use every opportunity to create more.
2) Change is inevitable, it can be positive, be patient, be persistent.
In order to appreciate your health you have to care about your body, how you use it, how you should not use it and what you put into it.
You know that little red flag that waves when you are about to eat something you think you probably shouldn't, like fast food. When you just listen to your instincts and common sense, most health choices are obvious.
Should I eat glue? NO
Should I drink these chemicals? NO
Should I eat a pound of processed cheese? NO
Should I exercise today? YES
Should I drive a little further and get that delicious organic corn? YES
Should I eat 15 of the pickles I just made? Probably Not...
Just remember you are nothing without your health, so appreciate your body by treating it well. You will notice and feel a difference and it will allow you to enjoy the things around you. You have to follow through to see the benefits, saying yes or no is one thing, making it happen is still up to you.
