Raspberries have so many wonderful benefits– they boost your metabolism, are high in antioxidants, keep your glucose levels low, are a source of fiber and are high in vitamin c. This time of year, adding them to smoothies, salads, or having as a snack is a great way to ward off the cold and flu. If you’re trying to keep your weight in balance, raspberries can be very helpful.

I made some quick and easy pancakes this morning and wanted to share the recipe with you. I’m slowly working on taking refined sugar out of my diet, and right now I am experimenting with date sugar. I found it online, and what I love is the only ingredient on the package is dates! It is quite good and worked very well for this recipe.
You will need:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. date sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups water
1 tbsp oil (I used grapeseed)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Makes eight 4″ pancakes
Whisk together dry ingredients, then add liquid. Cook on medium low heat for best results.
It is a new week, which means a fresh start. I’ve noticed the commiseration around Mondays. I get it, but it’s 1/7 of every week! If you’re an entrepreneur, Monday is no different than any other day anyway. It’s just another day to grind. Here are my top 7 reasons you should love Mondays:
A new week is a fresh start. You can take another stab at old tasks, or take on new ones.
It’s a great day to set your momentum. This is a great day to set some goals. If you start out driven, focused, and with a plan– the rest of your week will be set up for success!
Stewardship. If you’re a good steward of your work week, the weekend is yours! Enjoy putting quality and effort into your work, and when it’s the weekend enjoy relaxation and play!
Eat the frog. Have you heard this concept? Basically, do your most difficult task early in the day. If you eat a frog early on in your day, no task can be tougher than that! This is how I see Mondays. I go ahead and handle my tougher tasks straight away.
It’s a day to get ahead. I don’t know if you’re competitive, but if you are– listen to my logic. Average people are slacking, unfocused, complaining and saying they need another day of weekend. You’re not average. You slide ahead of the crowd just by hunkering down and getting stuff done without complaint. 🙂
If you still can’t find a way to love your Mondays, maybe it’s time for change. Change your situation, or change your perspective.
