Not one of them said, “Umm… you know, if I’m voted out, I’m going to be eating pretty dang good. So, unless you guys are starving – and until those idiots stop pretending like those Special Forces guys didn’t teach them anything – I say save the chicken until it becomes a dire need.” Continue reading The Chicken
We’ve all heard this one before — if you drink whole milk, switch to 2%, if you drink 2% switch to 1%, and if you drink 1%, switch to non-fat. See how they compare per eight-ounce glass of each:
Even though the calories, fat, saturated fat and cholesterol are greatly reduced as you go down the list, each type of milk still supplies eight grams of protein and 300 milligrams of calcium per serving. Continue reading Healthy Eating Post 2
By this time of the year, most New Year’s resolutions have long faded. Why does this happen? Here are a few ideas and suggestions that may help you stick to your healthy eating resolutions.
Most often, people try to make too many changes at once, instead of focusing on one or two attainable goals. Take healthy eating for instance.
