Don't forget the SUNSHINE!

Vitamin D deficiency is serious business. I've been paying closer attention to this problem since my Mom had a serious problem with it last winter. She was holed up in the basement during our long power outtage. We had a bad winter last year, gray, snowy, icy. She had to get shots & take tons of D...

Bun 10 cup Coffee Maker - Terrible

I paid about $80 on sale for a bun 10-cup coffee maker. We have the professional Bun 2 pot coffee maker at the church and it is fast and wonderful.

Fantastic Taste - Great Time Saver - AND Healthy!

Schwan's Chicken Bites are very nicely cleaned, lightly spiced, perfectly cooked, tender pieces of chicken breast. Pop it in the oven for 17 minutes and you have absolutely perfect chicken for whatever. My family loves this & I am thrilled with having it on hand.

Holding water?

Asparagus and fresh parsley! These are natural diuretics and they work wonders. I especially fresh asparagus grilled (just have to put it opposite the grill grid, lol). I like the flat leaf parsley better than the curly, much more flavor. Put it on & in everything!

Keep a Goal Diary
