Top 5 things women who age gracefully do differently

1. Wear a genuine smile - 

Nothing will make you look older and more tired than wearing a perpetual scowl. The opposite is also true. A genuine smile activates all of the good muscles in your face and tells the world that you're a confident, happy, approachable person. 
2. Address Loneliness -
There's a big difference between being alone and feeling lonely. Being alone is something we have all experienced in our lives, sometimes by choice, sometimes as the result of circumstances beyond our control. "Being lonely" involves how we interpret our situation. 
Get out and explore, even if you do it alone.  Even the simple act of going to the grocery store can help you feel more connected.  Take a walk around town. Sit at a cafe and people watch. 
Physical activity of any kind will stimulate your brain and body to produce feel-good hormones. Hike, ride your bike, learn Tai Chi, try a form of dance. Small changes add up over time.
3.Give your skin what it needs
A healthy diet, some form of regular movement, and a basic cleanser, moisturizer, and eye creme routine will go a long way to improve your complexion and your attitude!
4. Don't lose your curiosity
Women who age gracefully never seem to lose their curiosity for traveling on a whim, being tech-savvy, writing, art, exploration.   All the things that come naturally to our Grandchildren, don't have to disappear as we age.

5. Balance the role of Grandparent -
While most love being Grandma, Mimi, or Nana. Being a modern grandparent may require you to balance traditional family responsibilities while pursuing your own passions, careers, and friends. If you are bold and fearless, you can accomplish both.  Then, as grandchildren get older, perhaps they will learn to appreciate, rather than fear, the aging process. Model being a Grandparent that lives life fully. Refuse to be invisible!

The Perfect Day for Vegan African Peanut Soup

by Bold Bold February 20, 2018

whole food plant based, vegan, african peanut soup

It finally feels like a Winter Day in Southern California. 50 degree high! The perfect day to try a new soup recipe. 

I made the change to whole food, plant-based eating nine months ago and while it's had its challenges, the rewards have been greater. The challenges have been to break the Meat, Carb, Veggie meal habit I was in for 50 years, to Carb and Veggie only, minus dairy. Also, I no longer think of carbs as the enemy. In fact, they are my new bff's.

The fun part of teaching myself to cook differently is the ethnic dishes I've discovered. Today, it's  African Peanut Soup. Oh my gosh, the spices! I love the way our house smells as I broaden my culinary horizons.
