Okay so I know this blog is NOT about food … it’s usually about music most of the time! I just wanted to share a picture of my grocery cart and let people know why I have the energy and enthusiasm I have all the time. People ask me regularly, how do you do it all? How do you fit everything you do into your life? Why are you always so excited? Why do you get up so early in the morning? Well, my answer I think in part has a lot to do with what I eat. (The other part is maybe due to the fact that I love my life and I love to…SING!) 

I know good food brings me energy and today I wanted to show you what I get on a regular basis. This is my grocery cart from my biweekly trip to the wholesale store (Can you figure out which one it is?) I don’t go shopping here often, but when I do shop I stock up on good foods that are going to last me a while. Quick foods that will bring me energy and stay in my pantry are raisins, dates, figs, banana chips, raw nuts, seeds, dried cherries etc. (Did I miss anything?) Of course I love fruit of any kind because it is quick and easy to eat. There is no preparation required (except washing). It makes the best snack ever. God really knew what he was doing when he packaged up fruit and vegetables. I love having plenty of mangos, snap peas, apples, kiwis, bananas, celery, squash, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, asparagus, berries of all kinds, oranges, and pineapple available at my finger tips. We are so blessed in this country. We are able to have these year round! It is a miracle. I grow my own greens but now that it’s getting hot – they will be going to seed and I’ll have to buy from the market so I can continue making my smoothies. Anyway, eating is enjoyable – make it so. Eating to live is what I do.  Eat better and enjoy living your life. Love your life – make it SING!
