Kev’s Daily Take On 02/25/2023

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Celebrate You with…

QUIET DAY calls for a little silence.  Between our phones, computers, TVs, radios and other media outlets, there is a lot of “noise” clamoring for our attention.  A break from all of this can be a good thing – so you can catch your breath, take a step back, and center yourself.  Find time today to experience silence – even if it’s for a few minutes.

Education and Information

LET’S ALL EAT RIGHT DAY falls on the birthday of Adelle Davis – a nutritionist and author who is credited with saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”.  She emphasized whole foods over processed foods as well as nutritional supplements.  There are plenty of plans out there to get on the right path to healthy eating – you just have to find the one that fits you.  Underlying medical issues, where you are in life and your lifestyle can all play a role in how you eat.  Make it work for you. 

On Today’s Menu…

Eating Well

NATIONAL CLAM CHOWDER DAY is another dish to warm us up on these cold days.  This stew has fish, cream, potatoes and other ingredients depending on the variety.  Boston clam chowder is the creamy version, whereas a Manhattan chowder will include tomatoes.  Slurp up a bowl and warm up today.


It’s snackin’ time with NATIONAL CHOCOLATE COVERED NUT DAY.  Pick your chocolate, choose your nut to have it drizzled on and grab a handful.  Goobers were the first chocolate covered nut available to the public and they made their appearance in 1925.  Since then, Peanut M&Ms have become the most popular – which, by the way, are great in popcorn.
