What's in my shopping cart?

Each time I go to the grocery store I make a conscious effort to put in some items that will help me have more energy and better health.  These are great finds for women in perimenopause. Here's what I bought today:

soothing foot lotion

At the end of a long day, I am going to sit in my easy chair and reward myself with some of this wonderful foot lotion, while I watch a chick flick. This will be a great non-food reward and should help curb my emotional eating.  I have found that I eat for stress relief and to reward myself for making it through a tough day. Peppermint oil has been shown to calm the body and promote relaxation and stress relief, so I am confident it will work for me.

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes have more beta-carotene than any other produce, including carrots.  This pigment gives vegetables their orange or yellow color, and when absorbed by the body, is converted to Vitamin A--a powerful antioxidant.  That's good news to women because Vitamin A helps improve skin, boost immunity and reduce cancer risk.

Sparkling water helps curb the appetite and makes you feel full.  Plus, it is a good treat to reward myself.  And when I pour some into a crystal goblet, I feel special, and we deserve to feel that way!
Seltzer water


  1. I love it!!! How do you find the time?!

  2. My goal is to spend one hour a day writing. I put writing on the back burner for many years. It fills me with joy so I am adding it back in.
