Just a quick issue this week!
It was over 90 degrees here on Saturday and
yesterday. If you've ever
doubted the power of vitamin D, just try sitting in
the sun after 5 1/2
months of winter. Wow. I could feel my
energy surging! It was great.
My kids have latched on to a new favorite snack.
Their favorite flavor is Harvest Cheddar.
And I love the snack, too. According to the label, the serving
is 15 chips (and they're big squares). There are only 6g of fat,
of carbs, and equal amounts of fiber and sugar (2g
The only quibble I have with the ingredients is a bit of food coloring
in the Harvest Cheddar flavor.
The Garden Salsa is nice and zesty (but too spicy for
the kids). I

"Real People" eat snacks, but it's pretty obvious that your typical
chip or cheese puff isn't going to do you any good. So why give

just grabbing a bag
and eating out of it.
The smaller your container, the bigger your snack will seem. And
guarantee you don't overindulge.
I may have already shared my favorite "lose we^ight" coffee tips, but

You can get the same taste by using flavored coffee
grounds. Blend with
regular coffee to save money while getting subtle
Add regular cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cloves to flavored

grounds for yummy and inexpensive
Buying coffee? Skip the syrups and opt for
regular coffee; then stir in
spices (Starbucks has cinnamon and nutmeg at every
Or, you can order brewed flavored coffee (make sure
there are no syrups
involved) and add a touch of skim milk to get the
flavor without any
bitterness. If you choose "sweet" flavors like
vanilla or hazelnut you'll
probably find you don't need any sugar!
Have a great
