Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Perfect is 'Parfait'

http://thegrantlife.com/strawberry-shortcake-parfaits/Grab a glass or perhaps even a Mason jar. This glass is not to be filled with a beverage but a foodie considered the perfect way to end the day. If all ingredients are not on hand, it's not too late for a quick grocery store run. After all, this is a prime example why some stores are called 'convenient'! You will need granola, nuts, yogurt or pudding, fresh fruits, and whipped cream. If you are not into granola, bits of cookies could be added for extra crunch. There is even a way to watch those calories. Cottage cheese can be substituted for the whipped cream or even your favorite flavored Jello. Whatever you choose, get ready to just layer it! 

June 25 is...

National Strawberry Parfait Day

Why not make it a No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait? Recipe

The French word for perfect is 'parfait', and when you add whole grains and fruit to yogurt to create a delicious breakfast or snack treat, you are perfecting yogurt’s already considerable health benefits. Typically, a yogurt parfait consists of layers of yogurt, grains such as granola or crushed graham crackers and fruit. Yogurt parfaits are healthy partially because they are so easy to make. When the fat and calories are low, it can be a healthful choice at fast-food restaurants and coffeehouses.

End the day with a cool one!

yum, yum, yum . . . yummy!
