Rice Cooker & Brown Rice

I kept having my rice cooker spewing out liquid when cooking brown rice.

I started putting the steamer basket in empty and it "breaks up the bubbles" as the rice cooks -- no more spewing!

Reducing favorings for water

I started cutting down on "Crystal Light-type" I just didn't want tied to it.
I started with the recommended amount and then started using extra water. Then worked down to 1/2 pack.

Now I seem to actually enjoy the taste of water.

If you get free texts -- there's all kind of reminder sites -- sparkpeple can do it --- google can do it. Or set an alarm on your phone to remind you to drink a glass of water -- take a little walk --- or even do some office exericses.

Water Intake

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I find that if I just fill a glass and put in on my desk -- I drink it. Also when it empties .... I fill it again. If I put on refilling -- I find I don't drink as much.

Texting SparkReminders

Did you know that you can get SparkReminders as a text?

{{{please note: I would only recommend this if you get unlimited or have a texting packet}}}

When you create a reminder you just put in your phone's address instead of your regular
mine is my phone number and ..... @mms.att.net

If you're not sure send a text from your phone to your email address and it will show you "text email address) .
