birthday and love

Today is the birthday of my dear spouse and friend J. We are not able to spend his birthday together due to extenuating circumstances, so it makes me a little sad. He is truly the love of my life and best friend. I wish that I could give him everything he ever wanted today, but alas, that will not happen. My only hope is that he knows how much I care and love him and that my feelings will never waiver. He is intelligent, caring and loving and I am excited to see him soon. When we are together again, I will give him his cake and other gifts that are not able to get to him now.
I love you J!


About OneVeganFoodie

Let's see. I am a certified personal trainer (CPT), group exercise instructor, nutritional counselor, and wellness counselor. My training background focuses mainly on getting overweight populations into shape, but I have worked with people wanting to gain strength/healthy weight and agility. I worked with the Army and the Marines for several years before settling into a civilian lifestyle. I'm still adjusting and I really miss it. I also enjoy coaching non-runners through their first running event. I post my workouts on here but remember that you need to seek medical advice prior to starting a new exercise regimine. I also love food. I've been vegetarian for 10 years and 4 of the last years I have been completely vegan. I love food and I love to cook. I follow a strict diet that I do not recommend for everyone, but I really enjoy as it keeps me healthy and helps me to know what is going into my body.

    You never cease to amaze me at your accomplishments…. and now this….. I’m so proud of you! It’s wonderful to be able to follow your thoughts and activities here. It’s also great to see Bean and Heinz! They look adorable as always! Please give them a hug for me.

    I have a new recipe for you. I think you will really love it. Enjoy!!!!

    Corn Salad
    4 ears of corn, kernels cut off close to the cob but do not scrape cobs
    2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained well
    1/2 c. diced green onion
    1 1/2 c. diced Anaheim pepper
    4 lg. tomatoes, core out seeds, let drain and then dice
    1/4 c. chopped cilantro
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    1/2 c. red wine vinegar
    1 tsp. tumeric
    juice of 2 limes
    1 tsp. seasoning salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste

    Combine all vegetables and add remaining ingredients. This is better if it marinates overnight but can be eaten immediately. It makes quite a bit and can be used as a salad or as salsa with chips. You can also make it hot by adding a freshly chopped jalapeno pepper.
