There are times when I get so bored with eating. It doesn't matter what diet plan that I'm on, it just gets boring, especially when I have to think what to eat on my own. When I go to a restaurant at least I'm presented with a menu. 

Here's a way for me to get inspired enough to try something different even though I'm still eating vegan or plant-based. Sometimes it's just a matter of changing up the seasonings or adding a little extra ingredient that makes all the difference.

If you'd like to try some Mexican dishes but are afraid to do something complicated, then this ebook is the perfect solution.  The recipes are easy and, if you are already vegan, you have most of the ingredients in your cupboard or fridge.

I made the Chocolate Chia Pudding recipe and I had everything I needed.  It was easy to put together, refrigerate overnight and it was ready in the morning. Some of the recipes call for other ingredients that I wouldn't have on hand, like tortillas but they are readily available at the grocery store.

Take a chance and check the recipes out. You may be surprised when your palate says, "MMMMmm, good!"

Do you eat healthy, get plenty of rest and still have tired looking eyes? Well, some of this is just because we age and our bodies lose some of the nutrients that give us the appearance of looking young. So, we need help.

Here is a product that is called Super Peptide. It is an eye brightening clear, gel serum that you apply to the areas around your eye morning and night. It dries clear so that you can still apply your makeup over it during the day or a moisturizer at night.

I haven't noticed an irritation from the product but I have seen an improvement in the healthiness of my eyes. It works especially well reducing the bags under my eyes and brightening the dark circles.

I believe that after several weeks of using this product my eyes will appear younger looking and healthier. Once we get into our middle years it's harder to maintain that look but with products like this available, it can certainly be helpful.

I have finally come into the 21st Century as far as kitchen knives go. My dull old steel knives have been replaced by the newest on the market...ceramic knives. Now, I still have to keep my steel carving knives because ceramic isn't made for deboning or chopping into frozen foods.

This ceramic knife by Suzaru is fine, it really is. The cutting edge of the knife slices quickly into my fresh tomato and green peppers. It's made for slicing and dicing your food so that you can quickly prepare meals. 

It is hand wash or if you do put it in your dishwasher be sure to keep it separated and secure so that other utensils or dishware don't bounce against it causing breakage or chipping of the blade. It fits well in your hand and comfortable to use. 

The blade is black ceramic and adds a professional look to your culinary skills. A protective sheath for storage is included along with a polishing cloth to remove water spots. It's a perfect addition to my kitchen utensils.

When is having a baby like tactical ops training? When the baby comes! That's when you are cast into reality and need to learn how to multi-task as soon as possible. Along with that are all of the accouterments that a baby requires. Bottles, bibs, pacifiers, wipes, diapers, lotions, are but a few of the things that are necessary to keep with you all of the time.

This company has designed a diaper bag that any man would want to carry but even some moms would like the messenger bag style. And it is styled for Parenthood Survival. Survivalist is certainly a name for parenthood that I never thought of but you do eventually survive.

Have you ever been somewhere and unpleasant odors assailed your space? Oh, yes, I have. In fact, a friend of mine delivered to me some clothes for a clothing and household items giveaway this week. She had told me that she loaded the boxes with dryer sheets because her dogs had gotten sprayed by a skunk! So I thought that must have taken care of any unpleasantness, but I was wrong.

 As soon as I opened the boxes, out came this stench...skunk and dryer sheets! It didn't mix well. In order to clear the air, literally, I resumed wearing my essential oils jewelry. Adding my favorite scent to neutralize the skankiness helped me to enjoy my space again. 

This elegant teardrop necklace has to be my favorite piece of jewelry. Not only is the shape different than my other ones, the drop is bordered in crystal gems. The chain is very strong and finely designed. A set of five different colored felt inserts let me coordinate my attire. There is a small bottle of relaxation essential oil to apply to the felt unless you have something else that you use to scent your air.

One of my favorite scents is peppermint. I love peppermint breath mints, peppermint patties added to brownie mixes, peppermint candy canes, and peppermint candles.  Now, I can have the scent of peppermint year round because it is an essential oil. It can be used in humidifier diffusers, necklace or bracelet diffusers. Peppermint oil is great for people suffering from sinusitis, allergies, headaches, indigestion, or nausea. It helps to keep you alert so you don't want it in a humidifier for sleeping but would be ideal in an office setting. Peppermint is also cooling on your tongue and nasal passages. If you have a cold, it can help to soothe your nose.

As with all essential oils, they need to be diluted with a carrier oil like almond or coconut, if you put them on your skin. They are very strong and can cause adverse reactions on your skin.  That's why I like the necklaces for the fragrance of peppermint. This company supplies an eyedropper for easy application of the oil.

It is 100% pure and natural.

Most of my friends and family know that I don't eat meat anymore. It's been, like, four years. You would think they would understand that I will still live if I don't have meat at a picnic! They always want to see if I eat anything that would be 'normal' instead of things they have never heard of.  Here is an ebook that gives me an assortment of meals from the Mediterranean. Of course, I chose the hummus recipe to try first. It was very easy to make and the directions were perfect. If I'm out of an item that they suggest, I just switch it with what I have on hand. You can make great meals without complicated gourmet ingredients and this book gives you that opportunity to impress people with good healthy foods.

My gosh! I never thought it would feel like this. The day after finishing the five seasons of Breaking Bad, I am in withdrawal.

I keep mulling over in my mind the scenarios, the innuendos, the subtleties, the storyline. Real life is mundane and normal, going through the motions until I can find another series to lose my reality.

What's next? What could be as soul-searching, so intriguing to my psyche?

I have no other choice than to sit with my controller and scroll, scroll, scroll through the myriad of lists of movie titles, made for tv, and reviews of the 100's of possibilities.

There, that's it! There are other possibilities! Ok, I'm feeling better. I see a light at the end of the tunnel vision of missing Walt, Jesse, Hank, and Mike.

Adios, Amigos! I will return to the present day and persevere.

I'd better call Saul!
