What’s helping me get over this cold

I am finally starting to feel like this cold is on its way to being over.  Thank goodness!!   I am tired of having to be sure I have Kleenex with me at all times and am definitely ready to be back to my normal self.  Along with the standard cold meds and OJ there are a few other items I have been consuming on a regular basis to try and get rid of this cold.  I don’t know if they have actually helped, but they all taste really good and I have enjoyed drinking them. 1. Ginger, Lemon, and Honey “Tea” I call it a tea but...

Soda Alternative

A number of years ago, I was a diet soda a day kinda girl.  I enjoyed a diet coke/diet dr. pepper/diet cherry coke with my lunch pretty much every day.  I thought because they were diet there wasn’t any harm in drinking them and further, I was being health conscious because I was choosing diet over regular. That is until I started seeing article after article about the dangers of diet soda and how it is no better than regular soda.  A few good articles to read:  8 Dangers of Diet Soda, 4 health side effects of diet soda, and 5 diet...

Pumpkin Yogurt

I explained last week that one of the reason I love fall is because it give me an excuse to drink Pumpkin Spiced Lattes.  However, it doesn’t just stop there.  At the moment, I am currently infatuated with anything and everything PUMPKIN!  I don’t know why but there is just something about the flavor of pumpkin that makes me think of cool crisp days spent outside.  Last week when I was at the store I found pumpkin pie light Yoplait yogurt and of course I had to give it a try! Usually I always choose Greek yogurt over regular...

Saturday Fun

We had a great day yesterday.  The weather was overcast and it rained on and off all day but not really enough to keep you inside all day.  On my way home from work on Friday I stopped by the Great Harvest Bread Company to pick up some bread for the weekend.  A couple years ago my aunt and uncle turned us on to their Cinnamon Raisin bread and we have been hooked ever since.  If you are planning on making french toast I highly recommend using one of their breads!  I promise you will not be disappointed.  I ended up buying a loaf of...

Olé!

Olé!

I wanted to share with you two products that I have been totally digging lately.  They are both great to use if you are making any type of Mexican cuisine but they can also be used in lots of other ways. The first is Trader Joe’s Reduced Carb Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas.  These are perfect to use for tacos, small wraps, quesadillas, etc. and compared to normal tortillas they are so much better for you.  Depending on their size, normal tortillas usually have between 100-250 calories.  These have 45!  Now they are small, but you can...
