Easy deviled eggs

I use my potato ricer to prepare egg yolks for deviled eggs when I needed to make a large quantify, and they came out nice and smooth - no lumps. Mix with fat free mayo and your choice of seasoning for a yummy and healthy protein dish.

Exercise with rugs

Beating rugs is good exercise. I use an old tennis racket that I bought for $1 at Goodwill.

Icing an sore muscle

Fill small styrofoam cups about half full of water and stick them in the freezer. When you need to ice a injury, pull out a cup, peel off the top to expose the ice and massage away. The styrofoam cup provides a good grip. When my boys ran track this was a lifesaver.

The Power of Choices

Never ask a child "What do you want to eat?" Offer two or three healthy choices. That way the child feels good about being able to choose and you still keep control. Works for your own diet too. Before going into the kitchen for a snack, get your mind set on choose between healthy foods.

Blog anyway

Sometimes I really don't feel like writing my blog, but I do it anyway. It helps me bring clarify to my thoughts. If I've had a good day I can write it and know that others will celebrate with me. If I messed up just saying so helps me move forward.

Shoe storage

I keep my shoes on shelves in the closet. Each pair has one shoe toe in and the other toe out. That way it is obvious which shoes I'm grabbing and how high the heels are. Also takes less space.

Plan for a treat

Tonight I'm having a treat (glass of wine with dinner), so I went ahead and posted it on the nutrition tracker ahead of time. That helps me plan the rest of my food to stay within goals.

Southern Sweet Tea

I live in the deep south where sweet tea is de rigueur. I serve only unsweetened tea, but offer a small pitcher of simple syrup (1 part sugar per 2 parts water). This lets everyone who wants sugar sweeten to taste.
