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.

Family Matters: Brookshire’s World of Wildlife Museum and Country Store

It’s HOT outside.  Summer vacation time is beginning to wind down as the kids are thinking about going back to school.  Before the good times run out this summer, take time to do at least one or two more fun activities with your children or grandchildren.

The best FREE outing I could suggest is a trip to the Brookshire’s World of Wildlife Museum and Country Store in Tyler, TX.  You’ll find a link to the museum under the “Kids” section on the website showing the days and hours of operation.  The museum is always a favorite destination for my two grandsons when they visit me in Tyler.  And you can’t beat the fact that it always offers free admission!

Healthy Living: Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic Crust

Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic CrustWhen we think about eating tuna, most of us think about tuna in a can.  While I have eaten plenty of tuna, I had never eaten a tuna filet until recently.  Tuna is very nutritional as a serving contains 179 calories, 1 gram of fat, zero carbs and 39 grams of protein.  A tuna fish sandwich has always been a staple around our house.

While dining out recently, I decided to be daring and try a seared tuna steak.  I’ve always eaten a lot of fish, but never had a tuna steak.  Wow!  It was light, healthy and delicious!  Since it was seared, it had the consistency of a tender steak rather than the flakiness of fish.  I liked it so much that I have prepared it at home several times over the past few weeks.  I found a great recipe at one of our recipe kiosks in our store.  These kiosks can be found in several of our stores and are a great resource for recipes.  Next time you want to cook a healthy meal try this easy and quick to prepare recipe:
