Spent most of the day enjoying nature and all the beauty that the earth provides! 🌳🍃 As I looked around and marveled at all of the life surrounding me, the trees, the animals, the entire ecosystem, etc., it was a reminder of just how much living diversity exists on the planet!
And Mother Earth provides everything that each living thing needs to thrive, including us...food, water, air, all of it!
All she asks is that we take care of her, too! By loving her, keeping her clean, reducing waste, protecting each other and the animals.
Exactly like our own bodies!
Our gut is a replica of the ecosystem that we live in!
There are millions of living species and when working properly, they provide us with everything we need to be healthy and thrive!
All we have to do is keep it clean by eating well, exercise regularly to promote balance, and also take a probiotic supplement that replenishes all the strains that are naturally occurring in the body!
When we do this, we create an environment that supports the body’s natural healing system and allows us to be healthy and full of life!
Sometimes taking a step into nature and remembering our connection to it makes all the difference! 💚
Today has been wonderful and I hope you enjoyed it too!
Don’t forget to comment and tell me what action you’re going to take this year to reduce your carbon footprint and make the planet better for the future! 💚
God, family, country... Started preparing my little piece of our country. I'm looking forward to our fresh organic veggies picked the day of consumption.
BTW: I have a short list of friends I'd put after country.
Kiwi & I (mostly myself) have been landscaping! Working on getting a proper garden up in this yard.
Mostly I've just dug up and moved every rock that was the back 'patio' area and made new path, opening up the ground in the sunny spot for me to till. Its real life stardew valley kids. .

🥦Spring Veggie Stir-Fry
“This vegetable stir-fry recipe comes together in no time! To turn this side dish into a complete meal, serve it with brown rice and your choice of protein.”
•¼ cup Fusia Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce (regular soy sauce is too salty!)
•2 tablespoons SimplyNature Organic Wildflower Honey or maple syrup
•2 teaspoons arrowroot starch or corn starch
•1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
•1 large clove garlic, pressed or minced
•½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (scale back or omit completely if you’re sensitive to spice)
•1 tablespoon SimplyNature Organic Coconut Oil or your cooking oil of choice
•1 small red onion, root and tip ends removed and cut into ¼-inch thick wedges
•3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into very thin rounds
•Pinch of salt
•½ bunch (½ pound) thin asparagus, tough ends removed and cut into 2-inch long pieces.
1. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the soy sauce, honey, cornstarch, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Whisk until blended and set aside.
2. Warm the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion and carrots and a pinch of salt. Raise the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until the onions have softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. (If at any point you catch a whiff of something burning while making this stir-fry, dial back the heat a bit.) 3. Add the asparagus and cook, stirring every 30 seconds, until the carrots are starting to caramelize on the edges and are easily pierced by a fork, about 3 minutes.
4. Pour in the prepared sauce and cook, while stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened to your liking, about 30 to 60 seconds. Remove from heat and serve as a side dish as-is, or turn it into a main dish by serving it with rice, fried eggs or tofu.
