Being on The Fresh Diet with Chelle: Day 6

One of my biggest temptations in the past has been pizza, so as you can imagine, I was extremely grateful to see I was having PIZZA for lunch today!  I couldn’t believe how good it tasted, either.  The tri-mushroom whole wheat pizza alfredo was superb.  I have also gained an appreciation for tomatoes; especially roasted ones, thanks to The Fresh Diet!
Here was my Menu for Day 6:
Banana Maple Muffin with Red Grapes & Coconut Ricotta Cheese
  Tri-Mushroom Whole Wheat Pizza Alfredo
  Chicken Collette with Aged Cheddar Cheese and Fresh Tarragon with Chipotle Spiced Whipped Sweet Potato  and Wheatberry Pilaf
  Fish Sticks with Ranch Sauce
  Roasted Baby Tomato Stuffed with Gorgonzola Cheese

INTRODUCTION to my Life-Story Book (titled “Coffee Talk with Chelle”)

I was adopted at 13 days old, raised by two high school teacher parents, and reunited with entire biological family at 24 years old. This sums up my life in a nutshell, but there is so much more within. In 2008, I lost six family members within six months, including my adoptive parents and had two broken arms in 2008. This taught me many life lessons, and looking back now, I realize I had six guardian angels and two wings to help me fly through that tumultuous time. I have come full circle in so many ways. From an adoptee to a reunited adoptee, Grief Recovery student to GR Teacher, chatterbox to Talk Show Host, college student to graduate , daughter to motherhood thru foster care, selfish to selfless (volunteer) and so much more. I hope you will join me on this journey including the ups and downs as you read thru the various chapters of my life. And more than anything else, my wish is for you to obtain a sense of HOPE. That to me, is the best feeling and gift in the world {other than the present (now) being a present (gift)}. Hope keeps us going…gives us something to hold onto no matter how difficult something may seem. I will warn you now that not every bit of this story is all pretty as there is some nitty gritty, but we will get thru it together and at the end, I think you will find out what the saying, “Everything happens for a reason” really means.
