Eat Sweet Corn in Moderation

Sweet corn is a starchy food with good fiber, but turns quickly into glucose leaveing people with diabetes in need of insulin to regulate blood sugar and unsatisfied with their meal or snack, resulting in the possibility of overeating. Sweet Corn is high in sugar and 1 medium ear of sweet corn gives you about 140 calories and 1 1/2 carbohydrate servings

Melt your stress with music and exercise!

I play music that I download from Itunes on my Ipod when I am exercising. I noticed that I will exercise longer if I listen to some upbeat songs. My stress melts away from the movement and the music. I guess that old saying is true, " music calms the savage beast." I KNOW IT CALMS ME.

Exercise Your Mind!

Everything today is "instant." When is the last time you read a good book? Not out os necessity, but out for pleasure? Studies show that avid readers and people who engage in mind challenging activities are less likely to develop dementia than those who don't!

Potatoes Get a Bad Rap

I lost 40 pounds while eating a baked potato for dinner 3-4 times per week! They are low calorie and low fat and soooo good they taste like a treat. And they are so versatile you can prepare them in a different way each time you eat them so you don't get bored. Easy on the wallet too!

Herbs

If you haven't a big enough garden to grow the herbs you like to use, why not try cultivating them in pots on your kitchen window ledge? They'll be fresher and cheaper!

Plan ahead!

Take a few minutes at the beginning of the week and plan for the week ahead. Think about the meals you will have. Check the weather for exercising. Prepare veggies for the week and portion snack into individual containers. Thinking ahead saves time and money!
