    Whenever you work out there are only three things you really want to do afterwards: drink gallons of water, shower and eat a nice, big and filling meal. The water and shower are easy to come by, but deciding what to eat is always a dilemma because you don’t want all of your hard work to go to waste. Believe it or not there are actually specific foods that are good for you right after a workout.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to ask each of you, if you would, kindly open your refrigerator door.

    So how’s it looking? A little messy? Maybe it’s so full of food you can’t even see the shelves anymore? If it’s really bad, does it have a peculiar odor? And what kind of food do you have stored in there? A beautiful array of produce? Or a bunch of stuff you wouldn't want to tell your favorite Dinner Diva?

    Every day we are surrounded by noise. It can be a pleasant or annoying sound; you get to choose. Have you ever tried watching a movie without the sound? The background music is inaudible until you turn down the volume.

    What is the soundtrack of your life? Do you have trouble getting your children to do anything around the house? If you do it could be that your children do not have routines in their lives.

    Salmon is one of my all-time favorite fish and one of my all-time favorite meals for that matter. There are so many nutritional benefits to eating it — from its lovely, healthy fatty omega 3s to its outstanding source of protein. It’s important to make sure you’re eating the right kind of fish.

  • Not a 50/50 proposition

    Several years ago when I began to mentor women on the Internet I wanted to help them gain control of their homes and lives. My mentoring was not to teach them how to nag their husbands to help them around the house.

    Have you noticed how much easier it is to get something done when there is a tangible reward attached? Everyone likes to be acknowledged for his or her efforts, don’t they?

  • Is brown better?

    By LEANNE ELY CNC

    I remember eating Weber white sandwich bread when I was a kid. I’d come home from school, grab a slice, yank out the middle and squish it into a small, firm white “bread” cube and eat it with relish. I think back now on those times and am completely grossed out. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I grew up on white bread. Later on, my mom switched to a wheatberry bread and I loved it and wasn’t even aware that it was a healthier alternative to the white squishy stuff I was raised on.

  • Food, music and family traditions

    Do you remember those family pot-luck get-togethers we used to have when we were little? Our aunts would cook their traditional family favorites. Our uncles would grill something to go along with all that wonderful food. There was a family rivalry for who could make the best pie! What ever happened to those wonderful family gathering? Did we get too busy?
