Sex is an appetite suppressant

I have found that after having great sex, I am more likely to seek the water I need and food is not on my mind. Sex is like a natural appetite suppressant.

WORK DAY TIME SAVER

I go to the grocery twice monthly on payday, so I buy my meat in bulk. When I get home I separate the meat into enough for each meal, add the spices, onion, sauce, or whatever the recipe calls for, place it in a freezer bag and freeze it.. Then it is ready to thaw and cook on the day I need it.

Turn on the radio

Whenever life is throwing all sorts of madness your way, turn on your radio. Sometimes a good pick me up song can put a smile on your face or maybe take you back to a happier time in your life.

You can also stream different radio stations on the computer too. I listen to an oldies station from San Antonio on my computer even though I live in Louisiana.

Try it...you'll feel better in no time!

Count your blessings - literally

When things look dim for me - as it does for all of us from time to time - I write down 10 things that are good. Sometimes it may be tough to get to 10, but if you can think of 10 good things. maybe you can think of 5 more! And life isn't so bad! emoticon

Save time and add flavour by marinating before freezing.

Buy the bulk pack of chicken, steaks, or fish and portion in freezer bags. When you are done, add a different spice or marinade to each one and label the bag with what flavour it is. The meat will take on more flavour, and you'll start using less!

Vegan oil free baking tip: Cooking spray up top!

I like to bake vegan. I just do! When you bake vegan and oil free, sometimes the top of goods can come out very dry looking! Here is a tip:
Spray the top of your baked goods with olive oil cooking spray before you bake them. This will eliminate or reduce the dry top! Also, you can spray it afterward, which makes an even nicer presentation.
Recipes which call for no eggs or oil benefit the most from this substitution. Like banana breads, and the like!

Save steps in the Kitchen

Put commonly used items in the same cabinet--no more going in circles to do a common task.
