Memorial Day

 

I slept good last night except for having to get up to pee from time to time.

Outside my window I could hear the decent partying going on from neighbors in celebration of Memorial Day the festivity continued on throughout the wee hours the music, singing, and the excited crowd and outpour of laughter and talk wasn’t a disturbance to me at all.

I enjoyed hearing the near distant gaiety. I live in a nice and quiet multicultural community and when they party it is delightful.

Before I went to sleep last night I tuned in to watch my film noirs. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Strangers On A Train” came on and for the first time I’ve got to watch it in its entirety.

Whenever it came on before I’d only see a few minutes of the beginning or didn’t get to see it at all because of other distractions, preoccupations, or just not having the time, but the film was phenomenal and entertaining I was too tired to look at the other noirs airing afterward so I went on to bed.

I’m enjoying the serenity of my home right now at the moment, I’ll cook me some food, relax a little bit, then head off to another day of work.

Out For Lunch

For the first time this year I was able to take off my jacket and sweater for the nice weather yesterday as I went out to shop and eat. I won’t do it again, though, until the weather can be trusted because as usual today is cloudy and breezy, and who knows what tomorrow the unpredictable forecast will bring there is too constant a shift within the weather everyday.

Yesterday was just pleasant, regardless, and I spent the majority of it with the enjoyment outdoors.

I don’t eat out too often at restaurants as I use to (because preparing and cooking meals at home is much healthier and sanitary you definitely know the ingredients that is being inserted into your own food by your own hands) aside from the exception of from time to time buying food from the hot bar at Whole Foods.

A little after twelve p.m. we (a relative and I) entered into the restaurant in which we chose and ordered our lunch.

She had her lobster pizza (that is all that she wanted aside from her water and non alcoholic fruit drink), I had three baked potatoes, an order of fries, steamed broccoli, two fried pieces of flounder, some fried clams, and some fried scallions. I didn’t eat the fried shrimp that I had ordered because when I had bit into one of them It tasted like eggs were mixed into the coated batter and that butter had been sautéed into the preparation. I don’t eat dairy.

I stick to my natural vegetarian/vegan diet. It’s just once in a while or rarely that I go the pollo pescatarian route (one that absolutely does not eat any red meat or pork on a vegetarian diet modified enabling the consumption of seafood and poultry) and eat a little shrimp, fish, chicken or turkey.

Afterwards, we headed on home and I did some grocery shopping.

So Natural

How I Stopped Constipation/The Essential Benefits Of Turmeric by misslatoya

hot-spiceAyushi said 4 days ago

I agree with the turmeric remedy to get rid of constipation. I had started getting constipated and had such a food regime to keep it under control. It would be fine for ten days and then return on the 11th day or so. I gave turmeric a try and I haven’t been constipated in two months now. It’s probably too soon to say anything but the problem was so frequently recurring earlier that two months have been such a relief!

spiceI am so into healthy eating and caring for the body I even use a natural deodorant product that contains the safest of ingredients and that is endorsed by many cancer treatment centers as it does not supply any harsh chemicals like the commercial brands do only mineral salts and plant based extracts and the deodorant works so well and wonderfully for me.

spicyThat would be really great if the Turmeric does turn out to be a solid remedy for you within the long run I hope that it does, if not, hopefully you will fine another natural source that works in harmony with you and within your corresponding food regimen and body chemistry, because that is the key for all of us as unique individuals with different bodily constitutions and the circumstances that effect our overall functions as well as our digestive tracts.

We need to find things that are agreeable with us in order for it to work properly and thoroughly, and what may be a remedy for us may not always be or serve as the same productive treatment or cure for someone else.

fruit-vegetable-grainIn our occasional search to find the specific things that will cater to our own personal individual needs and growth that may also call for the vital improvement within whatever it is that may sometimes ail us I am sure that at the same time we are all reaching for that ultimate goal of consistently endeavoring to maintain the most optimal of health that is possible.

My Lifestyle Delights!

cupsI am free today and I have the entire weekend off and I am thrilled that I am in the mood to write today and my mind is on my taste buds and how I have been able to grocery shop and continue to find my favorite foods that go in accordance to my vegetarian lifestyle and that were available on the shelves.

I barely eat unless it is within my strict categories of quality and preference.

During and through out the last past three weeks up until now I had bought and fried some fresh whiting that had went deliciously well with my favorite Uncle Ben’s white rice. I also had bought fresh Perdue chicken wingettes and skinless chicken breast tenderloins to also go with my tasty white rice.

I indulged in preparing and eating both Mueller’s and Ronzoni thin spaghetti noodles that I heated and covered in a “Combo” flavored Prego sauce, a sauce with a distinctly delicious taste that is loaded with chunky garden vegetables that blends in entirely well with chopped carrots, zucchini, tomato, onions, green peppers, celery, garlic and spices.

babyI bought out all of the pouches of Betty Crocker corn bread/corn muffin mix that I made with pouring and stirring in my favorite Silk very vanilla soy milk so that I won’t run out of the product any time soon because every time I would go into the supermarket it was always sold out so I beat others to it this time!

And I caught the Cabot brand Monterey Jack cheese on sale and I eat that cheese because not only is it high quality but it is not made with any type of animal rennet just vegetable, and I grilled it over my Thomas English muffins.

I hadn’t really eaten cheese in about two whole years and I don’t eat it too often anymore like I use to yet when I do it is only natural cheeses (mozzarella, swiss and monterey jack) that contain vegetable/plant rennet.

I’ve had my chunks of whole watermelon that I usually eat with a spoon already for this year that I had brought when I got home in the morning-along with my other fresh fruit salads that I’d pick up and buy on the way to work to take to my overnight shifts to snack on.

saucers and cupWe have to live and do what makes us happy and although it is nice to go out to eat once in a while if one can trust the outside service and their sanitary practices there is nothing that is more satisfying than cooking and eating one’s own freshly bought and managed foods.

Like I have said before, to me, home cooking tastes far better than restaurant cooking and it is much cleaner and healthier because you know exactly how it is being prepared and served.

Today Was Fantastic!

popcornI just got back home not too long ago I’ve been gone all day long and I had such a wonderful day! The weather was beautiful.

I left home at around eleven this morning, went to a restaurant and had jumbo fried shrimp and fried chicken tenders with french fries for lunch along with a relative, then we headed to see “The Jungle Book” movie.

It was such an adorable action packed film that all of us audience members watched and enjoyed in 3D which made the movie even more exciting to view. It was so cute, a really great film.

Right after, as I had already bought the movie tickets in advance my relative and I went to see “Barber Shop 3” and that was a good movie too but not as good as Jungle Book in my opinion.

After seeing the two films I did some grocery shopping, took a cab home, and now I am going to just lay back and chill out for the rest of the night.

To top it all off I woke up this morning feeling so good with the natural energy that was around me and that was cradling me with acknowledgement and confirmation of a life well deserved. The universe continues to send and deliver to me the most positive of vibrations.

The Resourceful

coffee on the porchAs a health care worker I work within assisted living facilities heeding to the vital attention of client welfare and in the workplace we have periodic conference and recently we had one of our meetings that revolve around updates, procedures and so on, the usual important employee discussion and feedback.

It was a pleasant long day of significant communication and understanding in relation to the goals, responsibility and expansion of our profession.

We were provided with self-served tasty and healthy refreshments that had came and that were delivered straight from a restaurant for during the morning and noon time intermission while the company food provisions had also helped to compliment the already delightful  mood.

I have been on other jobs in different fields of work whereas on behalf of the company they’d supply meals and treats as a courtesy to their employees it is a very considerate gesture of hospitality and appreciation.

While within group session I encountered some new faces who shared quite the similar experience and agreeable like-mindedness in the terms of our interactions with other jealous and/or difficult coworkers from the past who were intimidated by us.

Another female and I in specific had concurred that we both arrive to our occupations to perform and to complete our duties and not to make friends, and that we do not have to tolerate any of the trivial juvenile behavior geared from small-minded “so called adult” individuals (with the minds of children) toward our positive job intention and attainment.

chocolate chips and coffeeMy fellow co workers and I were assured though by the higher ups that there would be no bias or the taking of any sides against another if a situation that was in accordance was to arise and that we would get fair investigative treatment compared to whatever we may have experienced elsewhere on other occasions.

Who has time for garbage? I know that I do not I never did all I am concerned about is the “beauty” (wonderful lifestyle and blessings) that I have going on within my surroundings, the never-ending broadened growth and development of accomplishment and change.

What high-minded person would “inconsequentially” entertain an idiots jabber and action? I’d keep maintaining the productivity that I was doing they aren’t about anything and they surely aren’t going anywhere, if so, they would lack the “vacuous” nature and behavioral effects that dominate them.

So pathetic to those who are permanently stagnant and resentful of the “various enterprising” who are absolute “seekers” and “achievers” and who consistently strive for the betterment and contentment within life.

My “Appetite” For The New Year!

milkI’d like to kick in the New Year by doing one of the things that I like to do best and that is eating.

Chilling again this New Years Eve as I did the last in the comforts of home in the cozy dim light of my bedroom snugged in bed with my favorites of foods and watching a good suspense or horror flick.

The only thing missing is a beloved pup or dog to snuggle up and hang out with but that will come in time.

I haven’t drank cows milk in two years because I now only drink soy milk (https://ladylatoya.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/soy/) so I’d like to have a full cup of cold and delicious “very vanilla” soy milk along with a medium-size delicious pizza pie, another thing that I have not had in a while, I haven’t eaten a pizza because I also have not touched cheese in about two years now.

pizzaI am very careful what I put inside of my body as I have been a vegan turned vegetarian for over twenty years and I will once in a while eat cheese strictly if it contains either vegetable rennet or no rennet at all and I cannot expect or depend on pizza shops in general to prepare their dishes with the same dietary restrictions that many of us have concerns about in regard to our lifestyles so I’ll just have to make my own homemade pizza with the high quality ingredients that I prefer.

yellow cake with white icingFor a delicious dessert I’d love to have a yellow cake with white icing as I haven’t baked and ate one in about a little over ten years but I have baked some great oatmeal cookies since then.

These three appetizing delights of mine would set off this New Year coming in for me with a “Bang!”
