Do you ever crave certain foods?

Of course you do!

Unfortunately most of  my other cravings are about crunchy chips of any kind,buttered popcorn,old-fashioned Circus peanut candy and salted pretzels. peanuts!

So today I am giving into my cravings and indulging in all things green!

Here is a simple but mighty powerful healthy recipe to enjoy.

  • Steam some greens like spinach,kale or collard greens.
  • Add a squeeze of lime or lemon juice over it.
  • Don’t throw out the water from the greens you steamed.
  • Drink and enjoy it like a cup of broth or soup.

Steaming veggies like this creates a mineral rich broth that is a great way to detox. Always think about your beauty from the inside. Nourish your body and give it what it needs.

Take care of yourself… Darlings.flat lay photo of fruits and vegetables

Window shopping is the best shopping! You never know what you’ll find.

Looking for old school destinations? I discovered a Woolworth’s counter STILL open for business. Serving breakfast,lunch and dinner! in the heart of downtown.

A cab ride away to another area is an amazing place to dine called Urban Grub. The shrimp and grits was amazing.A few short blocks away is Draper James a fashion and lifestyle store owned and curated  by Reese Whiterspoon the actress.

Another section of town I discovered was the Gulch district. You can dine,snack,have coffee and shop in this pretty area.

I stayed at the JW Marriott it was one of those beautiful hotels! I loved THE STAFF from the second I pulled up,I loved the spacious room. I loved the food, SPA,the gift shop, their own coffee shop and the bakery. Your next trip to downtown Nashville I highly recommend this is the place to stay.

They even have healthy shots with a vitamin twist at the coffee shop and Nightly Turn down service…priceless!
