Delicious Lemon Lush Dessert/Gluten-Free

Growing up I had a favorite lemon dessert and it was this Lemon Lush Dessert. 

When I was diagnosed with celiacs disease lemon lush dessert was just one more item that I couldn’t eat and enjoy.

A few years back I bought a more “manly” looking apron for my husband to BBQ in and he has basically worn it out!

So…. if your husband likes to BBQ or cook at all.…surprise him for Father’s Day with an apron that he will be proud to wear.

Photo by Ekrulila on has a wide variety of aprons for men,  and I know these particular aprons  will receive the stamped approval of looking “manly” enough to wear. 

Even better, these aprons ship for only $15.78

Day 4: Father’s Day Gift Ideas!

Sometimes you have to think outside the box for a good gift for dad.

So if your dad tends to buy things for himself and you’re puzzled about what to get him… buy him a magazine subscription!

Magazine subscriptions are fun, informative and something to look forward to each month.

My husband loves backpacking and the outdoors hence why I chose this specific magazine … however, if you go look over at Amazon’s website, you’ll be impressed how many magazine options they have.

And guess what?!

There are so many magazines that are available at a great price .

To check out the backpacking subscription I am getting my husband, click here.

See you tomorrow!

How to take time to Read

If you’re following me, you’ll notice this month my goal is to take time for your mental health.

Last week I worked on my mental health by listening to a podcast everyday …. this week my goal is to read for 20 minutes a day. It’s amazing how reading does wonders for your mind and mental health. Reading is a great way to relax and get absorbed into a story.

Relax and Read!

I know it’s EASY to find reasons not to read a book. However, reading a book is so great for mental health in a variety of ways. Here is a list of ways to take time for reading without feeling guilty :

1. Read a book that helps you learn a new skill and feel accomplished after your finished reading. Even if the skill is a “self- help” or “how to better your life” type of book… read it.

2. Find a genre you know you love. When you’re easily sucked into a book there’s less of a reason to think about your long “to-do” list while reading.

3. Remind yourself that reading is taking time-out for yourself and it’s not selfish … reading is uplifting and can help you be more productive in the long run.

4. With the great weather starting to settle in… read a book outside to soak up some natural vitamin d as well.

5. Join a book club and read along with your group. Being able to socialize and discuss the book is not only fun, but great for your deep thinking skills!

So …..go find a book you think you’ll enjoy and start reading!

During this pandemic where the world has turned upside down a bit, take time to enjoy some fun reading and I think you will be surprised by the positive effect reading has on your mental health and stability.

Here is a list of resources to follow to find some great books!

Amazons best sellers has a great book list!

Until next time!
