Most over the counter products and some small lifestyle changes, like drinking more water, can relieve normal dry skin. But how do you know when it’s time to see a doctor because of dry skin? First we have to realize what it is that is making our skin dry. Weather obviously is a big one - too cold and windy or too dry is not good for the skin.

So, who is trying to eat more vegetables as part of their New Year’s Resolution? Great! Now, who is meeting some resistance with that resolution on the home front? More than a few of you?

The other night I decided I wanted to try something new. I decided to browse the internet for a new and different recipe. Boy oh boy did I hit the jack pot when I found a recipe for a Layered Fiesta Bowl! It was seriously easy to make, and seriously delicious! So easy and delicious, that I proceeded to make it for the past three nights in a row! If you are looking for a healthy well balanced Mexican themed meal, this is it. Seriously. Try it. more...
