Are you a breakfast eater? If you are, congratulations you are doing a great job of starting your day! If not, I do not have to tell you that you should be, because I am sure you already know that! Eating breakfast is important, but eating a healthy breakfast is even more important. Form a healthy breakfast by including one or two of the following: a lean protein, a whole grain, and a fruit or vegetable. I try to add some variety into my breakfast options just to keep things interesting, even though I am certain I could eat the same thing every day if it came down to it. Another component of my daily breakfast is convenience, and if you have read any of my other blogs you know I am all about making healthy choices the convenient choice. I found some simple healthy breakfast options that have found their way into my daily breakfast routine! more...

This is a phrase that I’ve been hearing a lot of lately. That people don’t eat gluten because they want to lose weight. Now, let’s see if this really makes sense. What is gluten?

I am not a morning person. I seem to come alive after 9pm. In fact, I think I would do really well on the third shift. However, that is not how my actual world functions – I have to be up early and be at work on time. Part of the reason I’m not a morning person is because I’m a horrible sleeper. So when I finally do fall asleep and need to wake up seemingly only a few hours later, I’m not happy. Anyone else in this camp? This is how I feel on the inside, especially on Monday mornings. There are a few tricks that I’ve been employing to make mornings a little easier on myself: more...

If I go out to eat I try to keep the calories and cost down to a minimum, but I love me some appetizers. One of my favorite apps to order is nachos. I love how restaurants pile all sorts of things on top of tortilla chips: cheese, meat, jalapenos, beans, more cheese, salsa, lettuce, olives, more cheese…do you get the picture? more...
