Kitchen Creation: Quinoa “Fried Rice”

It’s rare for me that I get time to prepare a meal that takes a lot of time so I usually have to come up with something pretty quick.  Especially if my husband isn’t around that night to cook.  (The man can make anything from scratch out of whatever he finds.  He wings it and it somehow always turns out right.  So unfair.) So the other night I posted this picture: I knew I wanted to eat healthy and didn’t…

A Health Lesson: From Children

For any of you who have children, nephews, nieces, friends with babies, have babysat, etc. you probably know that children are on a pretty solid routine.  They get up around the same time every day, eat at the same time, get tired and need naps at the same time, you get the point.  What happens when they get off their routine?  Well, I hear things can get ugly. Thinking further about this, I realized those sweet little poop machines are…

Whatever that means to you…

Should food labels change?

Have you ever actually read the labels of the foods you buy?  I feel as if a majority of us stand in the grocery store checking out various labels as we shop.  I know I do.  I want to know how many calories are in what I am about to buy and I also check the ingredients to see if anything really bad is hiding in there.  When you really think about it though, what does all this information really…

20 Minutes

Have you ever heard that 20 minutes is how long it takes your brain to register that you are full? I am not a doctor nor have I studied this fact but I have read it a few times. I recently started thinking about this more. Being so busy and having a lot on my plate I tend to rush through meals more than I probably should. I scarf my breakfast down so I can get to work on time,…
