PLANNING BREAKFAST

My mother used to give us a choice for breakfast: We had to have either cereal or egg before going to school. Toast was optional and we had to have the juice she prepared, usually orange. It was that or not go to school; she made that very clear. Nobody argued with it. I’m givingContinue reading “PLANNING BREAKFAST”

The New Insomnia

THE NEW INSOMNIA Insomnia is only insomnia if you want to sleep and can’t. First I slept twenty-four hours. Then I was up twenty-two hours. Although tired, I had no interest in sleeping. The next day same thing. When normally I would go to bed when sleepy, instead I’d talk about it but stay upContinue reading “The New Insomnia”

The Gambler In All Of Us

Most people think gambling involves money and games of chance. Buy a ticket and the odds are against you that you’ll win anything. Most likely you’ll lose. And if you keep gambling you’ll lose everything, since gambling is one of those addictive activities that no one knows who it will sting until they engage inContinue reading “The Gambler In All Of Us”

Self-Expectations

I expect the same from myself my family my neighbors my associates and my acquaintances and friendships as I do from my President and the politicians who make decisions that affect my life directly or indirectly no matter the state or district they claim to represent. We’re all connected. I expect the same from everyContinue reading “Self-Expectations”

Sharon’s Law Of Absorption

Sharon’s Law Of Absorption Take too much zinc and your body goes into deficiency mode. Your body stops absorbing the zinc, any of it. Thus the deficiency is created. Solution: Don’t take more than your body needs. Take too much of anything and your body instinctively stops absorbing it. Back off. Why are you overContinue reading “Sharon’s Law Of Absorption”

EXTENDING A FAT-FREE BOTTLED DRESSING

Bottled dressings are expensive. And how many salads does one bottle dress? Not many. Why not use them as an ingredient in alt-dressings and dips/spreads, rather than using what comes straight from the bottle? Doctor them up to your tastes, extend them while reducing the calorie and fat content!! Works for me! Makes 2-1/2 cups

Lowering Calories In Bottled Dressing

How to lower calories in bottled dressing? Simply add vinegar. I use Balsamic vinegar that has no calories and add about a third of a whole bottle, shake and use. I usually wait till the bottle is a third gone, but I could just as easily pour it into a bowl, add the vinegar, thenContinue reading “Lowering Calories In Bottled Dressing”

THE PRUNE

A low calorie, no fat, high fiber snack to help you lose weight. Fills you up unlike fresh fruit, and the chew satisfies whatever chewing needs you have. Everybody’s different. Once Tom Brady of football fame said, “chewing is overrated”. I believe that overall it is. Why do people eat such hard foods that manyContinue reading “THE PRUNE”
