Imaginary Friend



Writing Prompt: Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)

It’s really weird to look back and think about the childhood friends that I had as a child, and honestly I haven’t seen them sense… it’s so weird to think of a time when these people were so important in my life, but moves on and life happens and you meet new friends and sometimes they move on too.

I am a firm believer that people come into your life for a reason and a season, but I won’t say that it’s not hard to have people that you were super close with and saw nearly every day, turn into people who say they would call you back,  then turn into to the people you haven’t talked to in a year and finally become to the person who gives you an occasional like on Facebook….it happens… but maybe that’s how you weed out the “imaginary friends” from the real ones.


Until Next Time,

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Review


A few weeks ago Sweat Pink gave me the opportunity to try and review Manitoba Hemp Hearts, not gonna lie, I was a a little leery about trying them… I did a lot of reading on them and found the following:

  • Great tasting – Hemp Hearts have a slightly nutty taste, similar to a sunflower seed or pine nut.
  • Easy to use – Simply sprinkle Hemp Hearts on salad, cereal & yogurt, add to smoothies and recipes, or eat them straight from the package!
  • Nutritious – per 30 gram serving, Hemp Hearts contain 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of Omegas.
  • Hemp Hearts have more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of chia or flax.

Still not convinced you’ll love this little super seed? Check out our hemp hearts infographic outlining a few key features of Hemp Hearts.

So enough with the reading, it was time for me to try the seeds, now the website said add them to your salad and incorporate them into your yogurt…. and that’s fine, but I seemed to like them best added a little bit to my oatmeal  and my smoothies in the morning… it added a sight nutty flavor… speaking of nutty.. I recently tried the super yummy and low fat brownie recipe and added half a bag to the brownie mix and ,made  Rocky Road Brownie Bites. They were the perfect addition to the brownies and the didn’t change the flavor of the brownies at all.
