Image
We all should have goals in our lives. Goals give purpose and bring adventure to our lives. But sometimes our goals seem too hard to achieve and we start to ponder around, that's when we need some nice inspirational words. Inspirational words bring you back to focus and help you to move forward.

So here are my top 15 favorite inspirational quotes that help me stay focus:

1." People with goals succeed because they know where they are going...It's as simple as that." Earl Nightingale


Lesson: We need to set a goal in life. Without the goal, you won't know where you are going in life or what you are aiming for. Once you know your goal then the whole path will be in front of you & life will be meaningful.

Quick 30 Minute Chili Recipe

Image
When I want to eat something spicy with a touch of Mexican spices, "chili con carne" commonly known as "chili" is always my first choice.

It is one of the easiest and the most delicious dish I know. Generally, chili is considered a greasy and unhealthy dish but I don't agree. Chili is very healthy if made it the right way. You get carbs, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and healthy fat from one bowl of chili. You can eat chili with rice, bread, salad or by itself. I like to eat chili salad with tortillas which tastes just as good as the taco salad. I keep my chili very simple & healthy. I only use minced turkey or chicken to keep it low calorie. You can use any meat you like. I also prefer olive oil over butter to keep it healthy.

So let's talk about my recipe. This recipe will serve 4-5 people. It will cost you around 10 dollars for the whole family dinner.

Ingredients:

3 Cans of Chili Beans
1 lb Ground Turkey/ Chicken
1 Medium Onion
2 Tomatoes
4 Cloves o…

Discover The 10 Benefits of Blackstrap Molasses

Image
Blackstrap Molasses is a dark brownish, thick, sweet syrup obtained during the process of extraction of sugar from sugar cane. It is the by-product of the process of making sugar. When the sugar cane juice is boiled to get crystallized sugar, there is a foamy thick syrup is made on the top and that is molasses. They separate this thick syrup every time they repeat the process. This process gets repeated three times for the maximum extraction of sugar and the final syrup that is made from the third boiling of the sugar cane juice is the darkest and is called Blackstrap Molasses.

There are two types of blackstrap molasses: Sulphured and unsulphured.
