Holiday Blues...

Hey guys and gals!!

Is it me, or does it seem like the drama always begins around the holidays? Is it the excessive shopping on a limited budget that drives people insane? Is it the frustration from the entire year that culminates at the end and makes folks crazy?

Whatever it is, it's not worth getting yourself all flustered over. It usually clears itself up around February, but in some cases it won't. There are so many other pressing issues to worry about...the little things are just that.

If you are feeling some-kinda-way, here are some sites to check out...

Dr. Oz's suggestions for a healthy pantry

Hey guys and gals!!!

Ok, so I LOOOVE Dr. Oz, but he always makes me feel like I'm going to die tomorrow. So here's what I've decided to do. To help me and you...I'm going to start updating my blog with healthy info and weight loss info from the show. I may add one or two of my own tid-bits here and there. With the holidays at hand, I'm sure this will come in handy to someone...namely ME!!! Enjoy!!

Pantry Staples and why...

red wine vinegar- helps lower cholesterol
hot sauce- helps cut down your appetite and stimulates digestion & metabolism
EVOO (extra virgin olive oil for those of you that don't watch Rachael Ray)- great substitute for butter and other unhealthy oils & it contains good omega3's for your heart
paprika- full of vitamin C
black peppercorns- gives flavor w/o salt
curry powder- cuts down body inflammation
brown basmati rice- rich in vitamin B, E, and potassium (add a green tea bag to your pot for flavor)
couscous- full of fiber and selenium
Bulgar wheat- excellent source of fiber
pine nuts- fiber and protein packed, can be toasted to add flavor to foods
pumpkin seeds- fiber and protein packed, can be toasted to add flavor to foods
hazelnuts- fiber and protein packed, can be toasted to add flavor to foods

Happy re-stocking!!!

Let's not forget to give...

Hey again. I know...overflow, right? Well, I just wanted to come back to remind you that it's also a time for giving...and not just toys...

The Charity Navigator offers a variety of ways to for tax returns, etc...check it out!

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is always a good charity to give to. So many families are affected by breast cancer every day...

Meals on Wheels is awesome!! No one should be hungry...ever...

St. Judes is a charity that I give to every year. I can't imagine what those families are dealing with. $5 goes a long way when you tell a friend to tell a friend...

The Ronald McDonald House is great too. They offer a place to stay for families with sick children getting help at a hospital away from home.

Choose one of these or any other charity that you like, just remember to give back. One day, you or a family member may be on the receiving end.
