The balance we seek doesn't come in each of our 24 hours, on every one of our days. But we can find those moments of balance here and there, we can cherish and savor those moments, and they can fuel the times when, for whatever reason, "balance" feels like a goal that's gone missing.

Voted one of the most popular diet trends of 2016, souping has taken the nation by storm. I'm left scratching my head as to why? Personally, I like my soup as a side to something else -- like a plate full of food that hasn't been deprived of its need to be chewed.
