Social functions, taking the kids to soccer, dinner with friends, going to work, volunteering at the big church fundraiser, exercise, cooking, relaxation, ect…

So much to do, so little time! You ever find yourself wishing for just a few more hours in the day?

If you’re like me and sometimes try to squeeze 2 days of fun into an 8 hour time slot you understand the importance of prioritizing. Turns out a priority is something given or meriting attention before competing alternatives (thanks!).  If you’re wondering what your priorities are, just look at how you spent a bulk of the past few days and ta-da!  So where does that leave us?

Well for me it’s a matter of “scheduling” more time for rest and relaxation because that’s not currently on the priority list. What can you give up or move up on the list to live a healthier and happier life?

My list also includes enjoying the foods I eat which is how I created the scrumptious snack below!

Autumn is for Apples!


Apple Snack Dip


  • Apple, gala or your personal favorite
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp creamy PB
  • 1 tbsp caramel sundae topping
  • 1/4 cup granola cereal


Slice apple, heat PB, milk and caramel together in microwave for 15-20 seconds, and stir, microwave additional 5-10 seconds, if necessary. Dip apple in mixture and dip in granola for extra crunch!
