I have a few foods that are my go to if I'm feeling like I need to get back on track with my daily intake of energy. Celery is my number one choice. It is crisp and it feels like it cleans my taste buds of wanting to have sugar.

The other thing that helps is to offer to make the fruit pies or crumbles. Yes, they do have sugar, but if they are made at home, I can control how much fat and sugar go into them.
The second part of my plan is that since I'm not cooking dinner, is to exercise twice. I hope the Thanksgiving break is prosperous and full for each of you. Eat well, live well.

Kids seem to be able to tap into this never ending well of energy. Running, squirming, bouncing, dancing, just to name a few moves. I was interested in making some energy bars for my family. I went to allrecipes.com. They have many to chose from. It is so much easier than making cookies and better for them.
Wrapping them individually and putting them in the freezer has really helped me to not eat to many. Even though these have healthy ingredients, it is easy to eat too many. If you buy store bought granola bars or energy bars, it doesn't hurt to try and make your own. Your budget and family just might thank you. The Internet has a ton of energy bar recipe suggestions.
Eat well, live well, and try something new today. Today is a great day to stay the course, and be steadfast in eating right.

The cool thing about this "hot" project is that it only cost about a dollar a jar to make. I love a good deal! Friends, eat well, live well, let your nose run a little and enjoy something hot today.

cooked steel cut oats,
This works out great for our breakfasts on the go. I am loving the plastic lids that go on top of jars, to help with no spilling.
I hope this helps inspire you to not forget a healthy breakfast. Live well, eat well.

Recently, I roasted cauliflower and broccoli with a dash of olive oil, on a high heat in the oven. It was some of the best cauliflower I've had in a long time, crisp flavorful, not mush. I added a dash of red pepper flakes for a kick.
