Memorial Day Weekend! Have a wonderful time, everyone, but take a moment, please, to remember the many men and women who have given so much to keep our country free. I’m sure we all know someone—friend or family—who lost their life in war. How sad! Maybe someday it won’t be necessary. But this weekend, I’m going to take a moment and say a quiet thank you. Hope you will too.
Here’s one of my favorite Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating breakfasts. You can eat it in Week Five of our meal rotation.
Moist and flavorful orange bread. Ummm good! Served with cream cheese and fresh fruit. Depending on what’s in season, the fruit might be strawberries or apricots or the like. Cream cheese provides protein.
We bake our orange bread in our own bakery. Wonderful! Of course, we’re very careful with the ingredients. Same if we outsource a meal element. Every ingredient must meet our standard.
Having our own bakery gives us a distinct advantage. We can control both the healthy eating and the taste aspect. BTW, even type one diabetics can enjoy our bread.
If you like snacking, you might save some of the orange bread for later in the day. Maybe eat it a couple hours after breakfast. Or take it to work with you.
I had a chance to speak to the Rockford (Illinois) Smart Women Smart Money conference. What an inspiring group! Makes me proud to be a business woman.
What useful advice could I give? Believe me, I want to be helpful.
My message came from my life. “Maintain a healthy balance between family and work. Life isn’t just about making money. Don’t feel guilty about going to work. Don’t feel guilty about spending time with your family.”
More from our two customers who are using our program to lower their weight from 500 pounds plus. My gosh, I am rooting for them. I feel we are becoming friends.
From Illinois, Janine continues to progress. She’s “delighted” with her weight loss. Remember, Janine has been on the program for several months, so she’s had a head start.
From Texas, Jean reports that after less than two weeks on Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, she is “doing great.” Although she cannot yet weigh herself, her knees are already less painful.
Jean also told us that normally her legs did not fit underneath the counter of her bathroom vanity. Now—already—they do!
My daughter, Paula, arranged for Janine to call Jean. The two women pledged to help each other. Both have a long way to go. We’re right there with them. I’ll keep you posted.
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
