If we choose, we can live life as an adventure. Helen Keller said "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." However, sometimes it may seem that only the big or risky or exciting events are adventures or perhaps those events which are least expected. But, if we wake up each day with the intention of having an adventure, it will come.
By having a sense of adventure, we can easily take risks to promote personal growth. By welcoming life as an adventure, we can easily meet "our edge" and go beyond it. Embrace the surprises of life as adventures. Venture into the unknown and discover something new, something surprising. An adventurous life is a life rich with wonder and excitement. Perhaps we don't know where the rabbit hole leads, but we can count on it to be a grand adventure.

With this exotic recipe, take a culinary adventure. When I created this recipe, I wasn't sure why I thought these fruits would pair well together. I just decided to try something new. I was in Florida and it was a hot day; I wanted a cooling fruit salad. In an attempt to balance the yin and yang of the food, I added cinnamon as a grounding spice. The result is truly a magnificent adventure of food.
Pineapple and kiwifruit have powerful antioxidant and inflammatory properties that protect against disease (of the heart, colon, and eyes) and promote healthy cellular growth. Pineapple contains enzymes that aid digestion and provide energy. Cinnamon is an anti-microbial food and its consumption helps control blood sugar, especially when paired with carboyhydrates.
