An Inspiring Phone Conversation

December 7, 2010 at 7:20 am 12 comments

   Morning, all!!!!! Thanks for all of your comments on my mom’s friend!!!! She is in recovery right now, and mom and dad will visit her later on today. I also want to thank ya’ll for the tips on where to get the peppermint extract!!!! Depending on how school goes, I’ll be out shopping for it today! =D

    So Thursday we’re going to Texarkana to meet up with my aunt, and yesterday she called to confirm everything. Well, my parents weren’t here, so I ended up being the one to answer the phone. We chatted for a little while, and then she asked me what I was planning on doing in college. I told her that I want to be a dietitian or major in kinesiology and specialize in nutrition and wellness. Anyway, she is really interested in all of that, and told me that if she were my age again, that she would want to major in the same area. She also told me a wonderful idea of hers: to start a fitness/healthy living camp, to get people away from processed foods and teach them how to live a healthful life, with the occasional indulgence, but also to minister to them. So you would be helping someone both physically and spiritually. I thought that it was an awesome idea!!!!!!

Last night, my mom went to spend the night with my grandmother, who is out of the hospital but still having a hard time getting around. So, my dad took my sister and me out to McAlister’s for dinner. I’ve already mentioned the Chicken Tortilla Soup that I love there, right? Well they didn’t have it. So, I tried their Country Vegetable Soup, and it was really very tasty!!!! I got it in a bread bowl, too. =D I do actually have a bread bowl-related question:

Is it weird to eat the whole bread bowl? Are you just supposed to eat the cut out center parts?

Of course, I go for the whole dang thing, and probably still will no matter what you’re supposed to do. The McAlister’s bowls aren’t ginormous, so I don’t feel stuffed after eating them, but they do keep me full longer than just eating soup does. =D Plus they taste amazing!

Well, I had better be off…..another day full of studying to look forward to!

    That is a very cool idea – what if you set up an independent business and worked with churches (and maybe other organizations) to set up weekend retreats for their members? You could reach so many people. One night could be a lesson on making small but super-indulgent desserts :).

    Also, I almost always eat the whole bread bowl when I order it; if I’m not planning on eating the whole thing, I just get some bread on the side. It’s food, after all!

        If you don’t eat it, then why bother to make it out of bread instead of plastic? Some people :).

    I love that camp idea! I think its so important to include a spiritual aspect to full wellness. 🙂

    And I don’t do bread bowls. I can’t take bread that is even slightly soggy. It’s a weird texture thing I have. Love McAlisters though.
