Some web creator Chatter…

 Nurture you and be kind. Please do not listen to what thoughts you tell yourself about what someone else thinks or does. Good or bad-Be fair talk to them, let them express their own thoughts not the ones you are hearing in your head. Consider if you are not already responsible for your choice of how you perceive yourself and others. Try a kinder perspective of things, don’t let old experiences dull your future perspective, or perceptions just another opinion.

Nutrition, home cooking is the best prescription to better health. I found this definition to read kinda funny,What is a prepared food? Prepared foods are foods that are typically produced for immediate consumption. “Preparing” is any act other than washing with water and may include peeling, cutting, dicing, or cooking of a food item.
