Eating healthy is all about eating the right foods to fuel your body. We all love to eat really delicious things but sometimes certain ingredients can make a recipe not so healthy. So, I created a few substitutions that I like to use to make my recipes healthier and much more guilt free!
Everyone loves comfort foods especially when it is cold outside! Since I am always trying to find ways to make my recipes healthier I came up with a way to make these two recipes taste really delicious and comforting without all the guilt you feel after eating them....let alone having to take a nap after! These recipes are also a great way to sneak more vegetables into your diet. No one will ever know they are eating something healthy either! I hope you enjoy these recipes and share them with your friends.
It’s football season and we all love to gather with friends and family to watch the big game. With that comes the unhealthy snacks. Everyone loves their Buffalo chicken wings, their nachos, and of course their pizza!!! After eating all of that heavy food I just want to take a big ‘ole nap! And to add to that I always feel disgustingly guilty about the food that I ate. So I came up with some healthy versions of the same food. Why not give at least one of them a try at your next game day gathering and see what your friends and family think? They are filling and delicious and best of all they are guilt free!!!
It is true that not all sugars are evil. Your body actually needs the sugar that it gets from fruits and vegetables. The sugar in fruit is a simple sugar, meaning that your body does not have to break anything down like it has to with complex and refined sugars. Refined (white sugar) sugar causes damage to your body and cells. It is also highly addictive.
Gout is typically referred to by medical doctors as a form of arthritis where patients experience pain and inflammation in the joints, typically in the big toe, but can appear elsewhere in the body such as fingers, knees and hips. An unhealthy diet triggers gout attacks, especially those diets that are loaded with alcohol, high fructose corn syrup, and processed foods, and too much purine rich foods such as organs and red meats, shellfish, anchovies, for example. The Total Gym is a perfect piece of equipment if you have gout because you can work out your entire body using your own body weight in the comfort of your home. You can perform all exercises in a lying, seated, or kneeling position, without putting any pressure on your feet, which is typically where the inflammation resides.
We all love parties but not necessarily the unhealthy food that goes along with them. So here are three healthy, fast, and tasty appetizers that are also handy to prepare days ahead of time or simple to pack up and take to someone else’s party. I hope that you enjoy and share these recipes with your friends and family!
I love tea as much as I love Total Gym! I actually dedicated a corner in my home to my love of tea. I found a whole world of happiness by trying out all the different types. I began my research into green tea after losing my father to cancer. I was looking for possible ways to prevent myself from the same fate as so many had passed away in my family. During my research I came across all the health benefits of green tea and specifically the wonders of matcha!

My Thanksgiving dinner consisted of a lot of different dishes to choose from, and who can choose just one or two? I know I can’t... I have to try them all! That…
Even though I love the taste and smell of coffee, I always encourage people to try and stay away. Why? Because caffeine is very habit forming and can cause undesirable reactions. It is amazing how popular caffeine is. Eight out of 10 people consume it every day in one form…
As Fall approaches, along with the crisp cool evenings and falling leaves, comes the abundance of fall colors and beautiful produce. Some of my favorite fruits and vegetables in season during fall include squash, pumpkins, root vegetables and apples. Not only are these pretty to decorate with, these seasonal fruits…
