You've got to Accentuate the positive....

Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

Stayed focused on the positives on your journey. Just because you hit a plateau or a rut doesn't mean you can't get out of it. Don't focus on the negative aspect of it but look at it as a time to reflect and adjust so you can get back on track even stronger than before. Eliminate the negative influences in your life & you will likely discover the truly happy person you are!! emoticon

Garbanzo Beans Provide slow-burning energy and Sugar Balance

Garbanzo beans, also called chickpeas, are medium-sized, round beans. They have no distinct flavor to me, but I drain them & add them to my salads because they are rich in protein & have heart protecting fiber, lower cholesterol,& lower blood sugar because they have steady, slow-burning energy. Sometimes I eat them aqs a snack right out of the can or bake them on a sheet sprinkled with cinnamon. Try them if you have never had them!

To avoid snacking...

I use lotion on my hands. Getting lotion on the food makes it taste bad!

Choose Your Stress !!

Learn to distinguish between what is truly important and what is not. Ask yourself if the outcome of a particular situation will affect you in a year's time. If not, then let go of all the stress and worry that accompany the situation. It's not worth it in the long run.

Frozen vegetables are nutritious and budget freindly

Frozen vegetables really are just as nutritious as fresh. Mineral content and vitamin content is almost the same. Just make sure you donít select blends that contain sauces,high salt, high sugar, or other unhealthy additives. Use in soups, chili, casserole dishes, sauces, omelets, stir-fries, steamed side dishes. Frozen green pepper bits are economical at $1 a bag, check out frozen brocolli, califlower, spinach and more. Some times you can save $$$'s.
