Well, guys, this post is quite the random mix of topics: Qigong, walkie talkies, air fryer Parmesan-crusted salmon, and books about mind-body healing. How's THAT for variety? Haha! I really think this is the most random blog post on CNC to date! 🙂 And I would love to hear which topic you found most interesting. Please leave a comment below with your thoughts!
I tried Qigong for the first time yesterday. I just finished a great book, and its author had amazing success healing her body through through Qigong, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try. It wasn't a traditional fitness class in the sense that you were sweating and working super hard, but the moving meditation was really great for relaxing. It's funny even a few years ago, I would have thought a class like this was a waste of time, but now I realize how important it is for me to calm my mind if I want to live a happy, healthy life. I just feel like Qigong is something I need right now.
Quinn is loving his new walkie talkies, and they've become quite the hit in the Haupert household! They're "just" kid's walkie talkies and weren't all that expensive on Amazon, but they work really well and have an awesome 3-mile range, so we've had a lot of fun playing with them all over the house and neighborhood. I highly recommend them!

I made Parmesan-crusted salmon in the air fryer the other day, and now it's become a go-to "recipe." It was so easy, delicious, and FAST!
I say "recipe" because all I did was spread a little mayo + dijon mustard on the salmon (any fish will work - cod is actually pictured below) and then sprinkled grated Parmesan on top before popping it into the air fryer for about 10 minutes. (I just checked it a couple of times to make sure it was cooked all the way through.) I hope you try it! 🙂
I couldn't decide which mind-body healing book I should get at the library, so I borrowed them all. I've exhausted so many traditional care options over the years and my insides are still bleeding, so I figured I'd give the mind-body approach a try. Wish me luck!
Books pictured above:
- The Body Heals Itself
- Health Your Mind
- Mind Over Meds <--- I love Dr. Andrew Weil and have followed him for years, so I have high hopes for this book!
- Self Healing Colitis & Crohn's
- Brave New Medicine
