Bank of America - Clarification?

I just sent this email to Bank of America's President, CEO, and Chairman Brian Moynihan:

Please clarify whether funds Bank of America is providing are being used, in any amount, to pay for the heavily militarized response to the Standing Rock Sioux, including the attack dogs, sound-cannon trucks, heavily armed officers.

Why is Bank of America sinking so much money into maximizing the amounts of oil and gas that can be brought to the surface and burned at a time when climate science is clear we have to maximize what we keep in the ground instead?

As a customer of your financial institution, I reject the notion of my money helping to support your investment in the Dakota Access pipeline, an inherently dangerous and unjust oil pipeline that threatens air and water quality in many states, and violates sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. I urge you to give up your financial stake in the Dakota Access pipeline immediately.

Until then, I am currently looking into moving my family's several bank accounts to a credit union.

If you would like to see if your bank is supporting the Dakota Access Pipeline, check this list.

In Two Words...

As our last Fitness Challenge Group recently came to a close, challengers were asked to describe, in TWO words:

  1. What being part of this group means to you AND
  2. How you'd feel it was gone tomorrow

Here are some of the responses received:
1. What being a part of
this group means to you
2. How you'd feel if it
was gone tomorrow
    Sanity    Lost
    Purpose    Empty
    Support    Unsuccessful
    Outlet    Loss
    Connection    Disoriented
    Accountability    Mess
    Necessity    Alone
    Everything    Abandoned
    Acceptance    Unappreciated
    Validation    Fail
    Motivation    Unmotivated
    Connection    Uninspired
    Team    Sad

I am so thankful for all of the support, motivation, and accountability that my challenge groups have provided me this year! If this is something you would like to learn more about, please contact me at Momma Jorje, Fit Hippie.

Stuffed Zucchini Boats - Gluten Free

Stuffed Zucchini Boats on Plate with Pasta and Sauce Stuffed Zucchini Boats

4 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
fresh spinach (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced (at least!)
1 small onion, chopped
2 medium, ripe tomatoes - chopped
salt & pepper
½ C Parmesan, finely grated
½ C mozzarella, shaved or grated

Preheat oven to 400°.

Scoop out the flesh from the zucchini to make "boats." Place zucchini boats in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Chop the zucchini flesh and set aside.

Brown your ground beef (or turkey) in the olive oil with garlic and onion. Add chopped zucchini flesh, tomatoes and some salt & pepper (plus optional spinach) - cook until softened (about 4 minutes).

In a medium bowl, mix Parmesan & mozzarella.

Fill boats to a mound with beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese mixture. Bake at 400° until cheese is golden (20 minutes)

Optional: Top with tomato sauce and other favorite veggies, such as peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, etc.
