Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?

Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.

Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!

I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

Recipe for Relaxation

First you need some lovely ripe blackberries, 5 will do for each serving.

To them you'll add
1.5 oz vodka 
3 oz lemonade. 

You might want to slip the glass upside down to wet the rim with some lemonade and then dredge the rim in sugar..oooohhh..fancy!

Muddle four blackberries in bottom of tumbler. Add ice, vodka and lemonade. Garnish with blackberry. 
Find a cozy comfy spot preferably snuggled up with the one you love....or a nice cat or dog will do.... Enjoy!
