1            10 ounces package refrigerated pizza dough
1/4         cup prepared pesto
6            tablespoons  ricotta cheese
1-1/2     ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (scant 1/2 cup)
1           ounces sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1           boneless, skinless chicken breast half, cut into bite-size pieces
1           teaspoon grated Parmesan/Romano mixture
2-1/2     tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil Parsley sprigs for garnish

1 .   Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

2 .   Unroll pizza dough and place on greased baking sheet. Layer pesto, cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes and chicken breast pieces in middle of dough. 

3 .   Lift one edge of dough and stretch over the filling to form a half-moon. Seal edges by pressing with tines of fork or pizza wheel, and make a fluted edge around the seal.

Prick top with fork to allow steam to escape. Brush with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley.

Food for Thought : Fall is on the way

Although it does not start for almost one more month , according to most , fall is almost here . It is important for children and adults to keep up healthy nutrition and physical activity habits during the fall months when schedules may not be structured . 
Here are a few tips to help you and your child to keep up good nutrition and fitness habits while being in  school or work:

1 . Sign your child up for an organized sport or physical activity class such as soccer or football after school . 
For young children , pick something that you and your child can do together . For older children , find something that encourages socialization .

2. Set your family after school activity time  . Going to a park , riding a bike or even taking a short walk in your neighborhood can easily be done once the temperature cools a little .

3 . Spice up your family's menus . This is the prefect time to let your children experiment with new recipes and to help them learn cooking skills . Choose age appropriate tasks to let them practice during the weekends  . Tasks such as planning the week's menu , making a grocery list or starting dinner can easily be done by older children.

2 .     Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks. Fry the potatoes in batches, until golden brown, 8 minutes per batch. Transfer the potatoes with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with celery salt and serve immediately.
Words of Wisdom:
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” 

“Life is not discovery of fate; it is continuous creation of future, through choices of thoughts, feelings and actions in the present.” 

“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.” 

“I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.” 

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life and don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. Most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” 

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.” A proud grand-poppa             G.

Food for Thought : Got Milk

6 Health Benefits of Milk

1. Glowing Skin:
Cleopatra took milk baths to help her skin stay soft, supple and glowing. You can do the same, or you can drink a few glasses of whole milk each day to get its benefits. Milk has several nutrients which help skin look its best. It has lactic acid which can act as an exfoliant and enzymes to help smooth skin. It also has amino acids that help keep skin moisturized. Milk can help prevent damage from environmental toxins because it has antioxidants. However, if you have a sensitivity to milk or dairy products, milk can actually aggravate your skin.

2. Healthy Bones and Teeth:
Milk is a great source of calcium, which is essential for healthy bones. Not only do young children need it while their bones are growing, but adults need it to keep their bones strong and to prevent osteoporosis. Milk is also great for strong teeth, and it helps prevent tooth decay and cavities. In order for the calcium to be absorbed by the body, vitamin D must be present. If you have a vitamin D deficiency, buy milk that is fortified with extra vitamin D to ensure that your body absorbs the calcium.

3. Muscles:
Milk contains protein, which helps to rebuild muscles. Drink a glass of milk after you exercise to give your body what it needs to recover. It will help to keep soreness at bay while replenishing fluids that you lost during your workout.

4. Weight Loss:
Studies show that women who drink low-fat or skim milk lose more weight than those who exclude milk from their diet. It is a great appetizer and it makes a healthy snack. Add a glass to your dinner, or drink a glass while eating a piece of fruit.

5. Less Stress:
Milk is a great way to de-stress at the end of the day. A glass of warm milk will help to relax tense muscles and soothe frayed nerves. Milk has also been proven to reduce symptoms of PMS and boost energy. The next time you are feeling frazzled, try drinking a glass of milk while you soak in a bubble bath.

6. Healthy Body:
Milk has properties that lower high blood pressure and risk of strokes. It reduces the liver's production of cholesterol, and it can act as an antacid. Vitamins A and B in milk can help build good eyesight. Milk has also been show to help lower risk of certain cancers.
There are several varieties of milk on the market, such as whole, 2%, low-fat and fat free. If you are concerned about the growth hormones used in milk, choose to go the organic route. With all of the types of milk available, you should be able to find something that fits your diet and nutritional needs.

                                Berry Breakfast Smoothie :
Wake up to a delicious blend of banana, strawberries, blueberries and peanut butter. This fruit smoothie recipe is a good 
Don't let its pink-liciousness fool you. The berries turn on detoxifying enzymes and ginger stimulates digestion 

Serves:  6 Prep / Total Time: 20 minutes

3              Cups frozen unsweetened raspberries    
2 -1/4      Cups chilled unsweetened almond or rice milk 
3/4          Cup  frozen pitted unsweetened cherries or raspberries   (or 
4- 1/2      teaspoons honey  
6 teaspoons  finely grated fresh ginger 
3 teaspoons ground flaxseed  
6 teaspoons  fresh lemon juice 

Combine all ingredients in blender, adding lemon juice to taste. Puree until smooth. Pour into 2 chilled glasses.

Words of Wisdom :

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.

The secret to a happy marriage is if you can be at peace with someone within four walls, if you are content because the one you love is near to you, either upstairs or downstairs, or in the same room, and you feel that warmth that you don't find very often, then that is what love is all about.

Food for Thought : August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

 August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The breastfeeding campaign, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hopes to empower women to commit to breastfeeding by highlighting new research showing that babies who are exclusively breastfed for six months are less likely to develop ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses, and may be less likely to develop childhood obesity.

In celebration of Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we've compiled the following guide to serve as your one-stop resource for the information and support you'll need to be successful at breastfeeding. Arm yourself with information now, and you'll thank yourself later for giving your baby the best possible start in life.

The Support You Need
The Ultimate Guide to Breastfeeding 
From the proper latch to the perfect nursing bra--everything you need to know to make breastfeeding work for you and your baby.

More Nursing Know-How 
Breastfeeding can be difficult for some women in the first few weeks, but it gets easier and more natural with time. Here, you'll find answers to our readers' most frequently asked questions about breastfeeding.

Where to Get the Support You Need 
Boutique-style stores that specialize in breastfeeding--with bras, pumps, lotions, potions and virtually everything else in between--are sprouting up in cities nationwide. Check our guide to see if there's one near you.

Support Systems
Breastfeeding may be more difficult than you expect. The right help can make all the difference.

The Benefits of Breastfeeding
Miracle of Mother's Milk
It will make your baby healthier and smarter. There are lifelong benefits for you, too.

Words of Wisdom :

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.

When I was 20, I thought I was 30 - but I was so far from it. When you're young, you want everything to happen now. As you mature, you can look back and see all the great things you achieved with time and patience.

1/4          cup water
3             cups watermelon, seeds removed and cubed

The successful know that the road to success is always under construction; they understand the roughness of it and never expected it to be smooth. 

Just having knowledge and not using it is like having a bunch of things in the attic – sure you'll use it someday but in the meantime it just clogs up space! 

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders. 

If you go to bed at night and think about your day and you haven't laughed very much, then you must jump out of bed and go do something fun. 

Humor is a great way to lighten any atmosphere, and laughing is a surefire way to brighten your outlook.
