Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

I will for the sake of argument call my soup this. Pictured I added beef, For dinner I had it with fish and another time with chicken. Now I can tell you originally I made this with mushroom as the substance (meat) of the dish.
1 tblsp coconut oil to saute
onion celery carrot  cabbage about 1/2 cup each
1 tblsp garlic minced
1 tblsp ginger minced
2 tsp cayenne pepper
16 oz vegetable stock
1/2 C coconut milk
Simmer for 10 minutes or til ready to eat. I have been hungry and eaten it as soon as it was done as well as had it left over good from start to finish and so many options as far as what you can add for substance.  Dry Shitake mushrooms soaked in wine, chicken, beef, shrimp, fish, even just shredded coconut.
I am learning new things every day from my newest Jamaican friend. Today I learned about how to make coconut oil. Be looking for that in up coming blog updates.

After workout Coco Frio

After workout Coco Frio

4338 NW 7th Avenue Miami FL

That is my gym bus and Marly out talking to Bombo.  I have posted about Bombo’s stand before. Yesterday he was out of Coconuts so we got smoothies. Now here is the great part… Bombo  is Jamaican, and instead of spinach which I usually use, he put in Callaloo, which is Amaranth. WOW, I just heard some great stuff about this vegetable the day before. The seed is a great substitute for rice. The nutrition and minerals are 4X that of broccoli. It is great for anemia. Bombo grows it fresh there behind the stand. He uses all the trimmings from the produce of the smoothies as compost and he brought his plants from Jamaica.  What a great guy he gave me a seed head. Bombo is a knowledge bank of his produce. He shared with us some of the benefits of the things he put in our drink. Google search watermelon white part nutrition it is good for you.

Hey there I have a book review for you. Old School New Body (OSNB)
The link below the cover will take you to the site where you can get the digital E book.
Old School, New Body on

I started reading this book on June 9th. I was looking for ways to get my exercise routine in gear. I found this site, from the daily work out videos I subscribe to. It is called the F4X program as well as the OSNB. I really liked the fact it went along with the videos I had been doing up to this point. The book gives you foundational moves, which you do interval training. Which I am really getting into. This book gives you the meat and potatoes you need… but not the kind that get you fat. These meat and potatoes are the kind that you can hold onto for life as you go for the goal of finishing the end of your life like that last rep of the day… Going strong til the finish and finishing with every last ounce you can get out of this life. This is for the long haul. I got a kick out of the quote from another author.
My one negative…
I flinched at the vulgarity that was used in the book it may have been only once but I caught it, and it did not need to be there with all the great positive stuff that they did have.
Back to the positive…
The book is chuck full of things Steve learned working for a fitness magazine. It is a compilation of many techniques he has used himself. The plan is concise and really works. My friend I am working out with notices me losing and shaping up. This is the how and why of it. But with all things you have to follow the plan and stick with it. You could spend hours and half a life time looking for what you get in this package. The exercise plan, the meals, all the health, and nutrition information packed into this book is well worth the price. Consider becoming a Doctor as you read through all the great lessons in this guide.
I blogged back in June knowing I wanted to try this
So I had one other thing to say after reading this book stop dieting and having Cheat days those two things are bad for you. Start living life to your fullest potential and having victorious eating days. We deserve to feel beautiful and enjoy all of God’s gifts for us. It only takes 30 minutes a day. I will tell you on another day how I have adapted this to make it work for me. As I get stronger.

Watermelon Pizza


Watermelon Pizza

Hello, Here is a great 4th of July cool down dessert. You can have the slices and toppings ready and do a build your own or I just went ahead and made them up. One for a friend, One to bring to my Mom’s and One for me to have here. So I had the containers ready to go, and built them right in the container. Now looking back I know that you should cut them ahead of putting them in the container, because when you cut you end up marking the container.

Watermelon Pizza

Start of Watermelon Pizza

The process begins

20140630 043

Squeeze mango seed to juice like a sauce Then the strawberry pepperoni and Blueberry olives.

I took the seed of the mango after cutting off most of the meat and squeezed some juices on the watermelon to look like a sauce. Next slice up the strawberries and spread them like pepperoni, The blueberries I used like olives however if you cut them they look great too, as you can see in the picture. I tried all different ways on the three of the pizzas so it really is a any way you want kinda thing.  I sliced mango and put it on before the other fruit and I liked it that way best.20140630 046 20140630 044
Yum Top it with some shredded coconut to look like the cheese. And all good cooks know it is not finished til you add the herbs and spices. O:) For that out to the garden to pick some mint and stevia. Sprinkle those on top and spritz with lemon juice. This is great served chilled. But I have to say they are good any way but… BEST Shared with friends!!!
Marly Bombo and his fruit stand

Update on the workout

Heat Car

Hot with the Heat

Heat before Loss

So this is before the Loss

I am not laughing that would cause a lot of my friends and family distress. But the title fits for the car and me. We are bothon our way to losing. The Heat lost the Championship to the spurs and I have lost 7 lbs. You really don’t see the loss of seven pounds but you feel it. I feel great and even though it is not a visual weight loss yet. I know it and feel it.  We have been stopping at a great fruit stand here in Miami. If you are near downtown you gotta swing in to see Bombo. We get a coco frio after working out at the gym. Here are two cards from those places

Buisness Cards

Come visit Sister Charmaine


Must stop @ Bombo’s

More to come I am bringing Bombo my fruit pizza…
Life is great full of adventures and great people to meet. God loves us all. There is little time to tell them about Jesus. Even when they don’t at first except Him at first… it is not you they are pushing away. Keep going and keep Showing Jesus’ Love. You see the at first back there. Your love can sway a heart to know the Lord. Your smile and friendship maybe the only Bible they see. If it is His will God will complete the work you start in Jesus Name.

Mango Season

Mango Season
So Here Is My Mango Salsa Recipe
2 Ripe Mangos
1 cup Onion
1 cup Green pepper
2 Tblsp Garlic
3 Cayenne peppers (optional)
1 Tblsp Cilantro
Dice each of those ingredients and put in a bowl.
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together.
The Cayenne pepper maybe optional for some but for us we love it. My husband does not eat mango but he has eaten some and it is not bad. I suppose if I added BACON he would like it better. But that does work with everything for him. O:) I have some without cayenne for my mom. I did a jar with for my fridge then another for the freezer. Whether you can it freeze it or eat it right away this is great on Shrimp, chicken, pork, and Chips. Come to think of it I like it on all kinds of things!!!
As you can maybe see in the picture this is a great way to reuse those glass jars as you give them to others to enjoy.
For labels to cover any things printed on the tops I print out lots of them from online.
Here is one I like:

Jar lids

Jar lids

These can be printed as you like. I use a label paper, which is sticky. However, I had also used just thick packing tape to adhere them. I pray you have fun with this recipe as well as the tags.

Relationally Speaking

Relationally Speaking
I Was just talking with a friend who is having relationship problems. She was talking about another friend of ours who was also having relationship problems. In the mean time I have my own relationship problems. Now am I talking husbands, boyfriends, or baby daddies.L O:) L  YES the answer is yes. I told her instead of focusing on earth relationships, which are very complex yet they are just here today gone tomorrow. We need to be focusing on our eternal relationship. Getting to know our Heavenly Lover, our True Lover, our Everything. He matters, His likes, His dislikes. He desires our thoughts, our attention our focus. I know it is hard you can’t text him to come get you for dinner or ask him to take you dancing. But, Who or what is stopping you from getting dressed up and doing it with Him. He will be there Take Him to dinner or stay home and cook for Him. Talk to Him No one on earth has more in common with you, no one on earth will listen to you solely and pay as close attention as He will.
Oh Heavenly Lord, You are our Husband, You are everything to us. Help us to let go of the relationships here that steal our joy and peace, we need You to guide us to following Your perfect will for us. If the relationship is a marriage help us to mend the marriage and heal our hearts. If the relationship is abusive help us to be strong in body, mind, and soul. Show us Lord how to walk more like You and less like the world. In Jesus’ Holy Name Amen.
