I know I have spoken before about going on vacation and still eating healthy and exercising. The truth is though that many of us forget that when we travel. Sure it can be tempting to eat more and totally get lax from your regular routine, BUT the reality is if you totally overdo it you can return from vacation needing a vacation. Personally, I just got back from an amazing trip with my sister to visit my niece who lives in Hawaii. I love going on holidays. I just wish I could afford to go on them more than I do now. This is why my grandparents are amazing. Obviously, they have had more time to save for their future and now the right time has come where they have retired and are able to travel to places they never thought about visiting before. They advised me to look into a site like https://www.keyadvice.co.uk/equity-release/calculator, just so I could get a better understanding of what got them to the stage of being able to afford these luxurious holidays. When we are younger and our parents tell us to save for our future, this is what they mean. You want to be able to enjoy life once you retire and this is what I am looking forward to. I’m sure I will be able to keep up my healthy habits too. When I went to Hawaii, you bet I included a margarita at lunch and a martini at dinner, but I also kayaked, hiked, practiced yoga and I ate a whole lot of avocado. I didn’t get back from vacation wiped out, even with the time difference, I came back invigorated. Yep, something to ponder when planning your next trip! A UK road trip is definitely on the cards at some point in the future. The people in the UK are so lucky to have car insurance companies that don’t require a deposit. You’ll certainly need that before embarking on a trip! Let me know how it goes 🙂

Keri’s Kitchen: Bowtie Pasta with Shrimp and Spinach
A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of this dish on Instagram and it was a huge hit. Realizing that not all my readers follow me on Insta I thought I should share it here also. Didn’t want you to miss out on the yuminess!
Now – let’s be clear on something though – I don’t actually create recipes (or follow them) I just kind of wing it in the kitchen. So here is my “winged” version that I made for two:
1. Saute @3 cloves of garlic in @ 2 TBSP algae oil (or olive oil)
2. Add grape tomatoes (sliced in half) – @ 1 cup.
3. When tomatoes are soft add baby spinach (@3/4 of a bag), frozen peas (@1/2 cup), parmesan cheese (@ 2TBSP), some water from the pot that the pasta is cooking in (the starch from the water helps to thicken and add some consistency to sauce), a little salt, pepper and dried basil.
4.Then the cleaned raw shrimp (5 for me, 8 for hubby) join the pan needing less than 5 minutes per side to cook (or until pink).
5. Toss in the pasta. Mix all together. SERVE.
Have I told you lately how much I enjoy doing a radio show, especially when I can be at home in my sweatpants with no makeup? Well, let me say again how much I LOVE it! AND I love it even more when it is on a topic that is near and dear to me. Detoxes? Just typing this word makes my skin crawl. Anyhoo, please click on the link above and listen to the segment. It is only 10 minutes long and I promise you will enjoy it almost as much as I did.

This article was originally on-line prior to Thanksgiving, but I haven’t shared it until now. Really you ask? Well, what’s the difference between traveling in November or December? Or for that matter in January? In my opinion, nothing! And to be honest, I think these tips are apropos even if you aren’t traveling anywhere! Let me know if you agree 🙂
