I LOVE my milk frother!! I got the one from IKEA called a PRODUKT. It's only $2.99.
Every time I go for a hike or a walk I collect a little "Treasure". Sometimes it's an interesting seed pod, or a rock or a pretty shell. It's always something small and interesting. I keep the treasures in a glass vase on my desk. It makes me happy to remember all the adventures we shared! And it motivates me to get out there more often!
Last year we had a horrific infestation of big ugly flies. It was night time and my husband noticed that the flies were attracted to the light. He had an idea: He turned off all the lights except the one in the dining room; then he went around the house and swooshed at the flies with a dish towel. All the flies headed for the light. Next he turned on the light in the kitchen and turned off the light in the dining room. He repeated the process, herding all the flies into the kitchen.
When I make fat free salad dressing I add a tsp of either Thick & Thin Not Starch, or xanthan gum. This makes a nice thick texture, and the dressing sticks to the salad better. It also adds healthy fiber to my diet.
I recently switched to glass food containers for left overs. I hated to stack them because they stuck together sometimes and I was afraid they would break. I bought a package of coffee filters and now I put a paper coffee filter between the containers. It works great and of course they are reusable.
My wellness Dr. explained to me that my cravings were happening because my body wasn't getting the nutrition it needs. I've learned that when I'm getting all the nutrients I need on a daily basis I don't have a problem with cravings. My body seems to calm down. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me.
