Product Talk: Greek Yogurt


One of the newest craze in food right now is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is creamier and richer than regular yogurt. Compared to other yogurts, Greek yogurt has a higher amount of protein while having a lower amount of carbohydrates and fat.

When buying Greek yogurt the wisest choice, if you’re watching your weight, is get the plain yogurt, with no flavor, and add your own fruit or even honey.  But if you like a little flavor added to your yogurt you can buy that too. Dannon Greek yogurt actually has fruit at the bottom of its container and it makes a great morning snack.

Family Matters: Sharing Meal Time with Your Dog


If your dog is looking a little heavy, you may need to examine their eating habits. Dogs generally love human food and typically beg you to give them your food. When your family is sitting down to eat a meal, do not allow your dog to enjoy the meal with you.

You can let your dog enjoy the weather outside or they can enjoy nap time or play time in another room. You know you can not resist saying no to those big sad eyes when they want some of your food; so eliminate the temptation of feeding your dog human food by not allowing them to be in the room with you while you are eating.

Healthy Living: Weight Changes


We all know that weight gain does not just happen over night; it may feel like it does but logically it does not. You may wonder how this 5 pounds or 20 pounds just appeared. Well think back to what has changed in your life. Has your job prevented you from doing your daily workout?

Has the weather made it impossible to do your afternoon walk? Have you been running the kids to soccer and cheer practice and have not had time to cook; so you have just been going through the drive thru? Well whatever it is, try to fix it. A lot of it has to do with time. Try to make time to prepare a simple yet healthy dinner. In the morning may be the perfect time to get a little exercise in with a morning walk. Just like the way the weight gain came over a period of time, it will be lost in the same manner. It may take a few weeks to see results but keep trying!



Healthy Living: Buy a Gluten-Free Cookbook


Are you in a slump with dinner every night because you are eating the same gluten-free meal?  Being on a gluten-free diet is becoming more common as experts are learning more about the effects of gluten. With the increase incidence of a gluten-free lifestyle, there has been a raise in the amount of helpful resources available.

If your dinner every night is getting to be rather repetitive then you should look for a gluten-free cookbook. Gluten-free cookbooks are improving as the years progress to have a more delicious variety of foods. When you are cooking the meal you know exactly what you are putting in it; therefore there is no need to worry if your meal could contain gluten.

 



Product Talk: Rosemary


Seasons change and so do my choices of spices and herbs. I go through periods of time that I pick one spice or herb and that is all I want to use. I have gone through many different flavors but right now my herb of choice is Rosemary. I have been putting it on everything, potatoes, carrots, and chicken. Rosemary has a sweet aroma, but you do not want to crush it; crushing it will allow flavor loss.
