Healthy Delicious Snack

My new favorite snack has become an 80 calorie yogurt with 1 TBS of grape nuts added. I fine it is best in the red or blue yogurts. (instead of lemon, lime etc.) The grape nuts have 33 calories, but it's much more satisfying than just yogurt.

Chocolate

Save time by melting chocolate in the microwave: usually 2 minutes on Medium will do it. If it doesn't look melted give it a little stir to finish off.

Oatmeal for breakfast - It is healthy & it saves time

Each weekday I have oatmeal for breakfast. On Sunday afternoon, I measure out my oatmeal for the week. It's easy for me to take all the containers into work on Monday and put them in my desk.

I never forget my breakfast this way, which saves me from having to stop at some fast food joint.

Your thoughts and words can change taste of your meal

Do not cook if you do not feel to cook, or you are angry or sad. your thoughts can change your meal taste. If you want to cook a taste meal, cook with a happy and clam mind. Your thoughts and words are more powerful than your experiences. I have learned this from my grandma.

home cooking

I have always done my own cooking. I can't believe the amount of people who buy prepared foods from grocerey stores. It is not difficult to buy a chicken breast, some rice, some carrots, and make your own healthy meal. Try it! emoticon
