This Is What Makes Me Happy

It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Walking into a clean house after a long day of work makes me happy. Seeing my mother smile, makes me happy. Having someone tell me, “I helped save his marriage”, makes me happy (Apparently I taught this guy something about nutrition he had always fought with his wife about. Now that he knows the truth, he said, there will be no more fights!).

Coming up with a simple meal for dinner, makes me happy.This Is What Makes Me Happy 1

Spinach salad with raw spinach, 3 ounces cooked organic chicken, 1/2 cup wild rice, cooked carrots, balsamic vinegar, and a touch of blue cheese dressing.

Coming up with a healthy recipe for Nick’s lunches, which also includes some calcium (something that is lacking in his diet), makes me happy.This Is What Makes Me Happy 2

This is similar to the chicken salad recipe I posted last week. I cooked 5 small red skin potatoes, cut them up and added them to a large bowl. Then I added 2 hard-boiled eggs, 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, ~2 tsp cumin, ~1/8 tsp salt, and LOTS OF PEPPER!

Having a fridge filled with good beer makes me happy.This Is What Makes Me Happy 3

The Great Lakes Brewing Company makes some of the best beer available in the world. Seriously. Their Octoberfest beer is almost as good as their Christmas ale. ALMOST.

Question: What has made you happy recently?
