30% Body Fat
Thursday, March 04, 2010      4 comments

Friday, February 26, 2010      4 comments

I check out a lot of cookbooks from the library. I search the internet for recipes. And so I read a lot of silly “tips.” The one I saw most recently was this: “If you find that you need double the amount of any recipe for your guests, simply ... Read more
Portion Shocker!

You would think that I have been doing this long enough that things wouldn't surprise me. And yet, they still do! So today I indulged in a bit of light ice cream. I'm trying to get away from it, but my magic bullet blade was completely di... Read more
Pumpkin Banana Muffins

Okay, first clean-eating muffin experiment! I have been playing around with some recipes so I can find some that are as filling as a VitaMuffin. I have made many tasty ones, before I was even worried about eating clean, but none of those stuck... Read more

Banana "Ice Cream"
Thursday, February 18, 2010      5 comments

It is amazing how I can look up some recipes and make them the exact same day, while other recipes I will put in my “try it” pile and it is days, weeks, or even a month before I give them a try. The recipe I tried today was one of those tha... Read more
Traveling and Eating
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      5 comments

Recently my husband and I went on a road trip to visit his mom. I knew we would be on the road for most of the day and I had no clue what I was going to eat. In the past, we would have stopped by a drive-thru, eaten out with his mom once we go... Read more
