"Power" Vacuuming

My built-in vacuum has no powered, just uses my own strength to move it over floors and carpets, good exercise for shoulders, back and legs, and it cleans more easily under the furniture!

Healthy high fibre substitutions

In any recipe that calls for bread crumbs or cracker crumbs, I substitute oat bran, ground oatmeal or quinoa and get superior results with high fibre and great texture and taste. This method also keeps recipes "cleaner" and saves unnecessary processing.

Track, track, track!

Nothing keeps me honest like writing it down! It's a gentle tap on the shoulder when I'm tempted to cheat, it's a great encouragement when I've done well, it helps me plan my day more productively. Then I have a record of what has worked and what hasn't.
