Too Many Easter Eggs? Make Egg Salad!

I enjoy everything about Easter. It's spring, many of us get pretty new clothes, there is always a lot of food, family, and fun!

We like coloring eggs with our girls. It's just fun being creative, getting our hands all stained with food coloring and then hiding them. But the best part for me is making egg salad with the ones that survive. 

I have been making this delicious salad since I was a child. When we went on a family vacation mom always packed egg salad sandwiches for the car ride.  As I got older I was in charge of making this satisfying meal. 

It can be the main course of a meal or a snack. If it's in my fridge I will not stay out of it. It's like I hear it calling me to take just one bite! LOL 

I do not have a recipe...sorry... however here is my ingredient list. 

1 doz hard boiled eggs (I have recently bought an egg cooker and I'm in love with it! I'll connect a link below)

minced green or sweet onion

celery 

mustard

Delicious, Cheap, and Easy Dinner

How does a no fuss no muss meal sound to you that is will make your mouth water...

and have you wanting seconds? I can tell you I did have a second serving of everything on this plate! And...I don't feel even the slightest bit guilty. 

The salad was so fresh and flavorful, I grated fresh parmesan cheese on the broccoli and baked a ready to bake turkey tenderloin. It was so good I'm glad I have half of the tenderloin left over for another meal! 

 I wrapped the tenderloin in foil and closed it up tight. Then I lined a baking dish with another sheet of foil just in case it leaked, and it did so I'm glad I thought of that. Because I did this extra step I didn't have any clean-up from baking the turkey. Bake it at *325 for 45-50 minutes or until the internal temp reads *160. Remove it from the oven and loosen the foil while leaving it covered and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. 

Next, I mixed fresh baby leaf spinach, prewashed, with an English cucumber and half a...

Coconut Oil; The Good The Bad and the Ugly?

Why! does eating healthy have to be so complicated?!

Do we all need to get our education as a dietitian to understand how to eat healthier?

Eat this, don't eat that...geez... it makes my head spin and I'm fairly well versed in the healthy eating arena. 

The problem as I see it with almost all of the news reports we get today is fragmented information. The reporters only have so much time and space to share the info they've collected, or they are paid to sway us to a particular belief about any given subject (especially food ads) and we are left as the consumer to fill in the blanks. That is if we think there are any blanks to fill in! Sadly most of us take those bits and I mean bits of information and speak to them as Truth. If only deciphering the so-called facts about the food we eat was so easy. 

Many years ago when ingesting coconut oil became a craze I thought humm... what is it about this food source that is so good and how can it improve my life? So,...

The Key to Happiness

Happiness...

What is Happiness and why does it elude many of us? How do we get it and why is it sometimes fleeting? 

These are some of the thoughts I've been having lately. As I look at my life and listen to the world's news it makes me wonder why we have so much hurt and sadness. It seems to be pervasive and has to be the reason for the drug abuse and acting out with anger. 

I am a lifelong learner in self-help. I have spent hours with mentors who have different perspectives on how to improve one's life. From exercise to meditation. From building wealth to chasing the happiness dream. My mentors are from all walks of life. I've studied at the feet of Swamii's and I have an extensive library on energy. Energy as it relates to Quantum Physics and how it works with Energy Medicine or the Art of Energy Healing. 

Due to all of my education, I may view the world a bit differently than some. I see everything as connected. I understand The...

Avoid Cancer Causing Carcinogens When Grilling Meat

Spring is coming, Spring is coming!

and many of us can't wait to get outside to grill up some delicious meals. Grilling is one of America's favorite ways to cook and if it keeps us at home for dinner than I'm all for it!

Except...there is some pretty solid evidence showing when cooking at a high temperature like on a grill it increases cancer causing carcinogens.

The good news is I've learned how to reduce those bad boys up to 90%. Basically, you get to have your steak and eat it too! Can I get a collective high-five ^^

This is a very simple process and there is even a bonus in it for you. After you've selected your favorite cut of meat, ribeye would be mine, open a bottle of red wine. Blend a cup of the red wine with a 1/2 cup of olive oil. Boost the flavor without adding the calories by tossing in a spice or two. Place the meat in a glass dish and cover it. Put it in the fridge for at least 6 hours or you can leave it in overnight.

What does this marinate do to reduce this...

Try Tapping Today!

Tapping, EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique. Have you heard of this?

If not you will...if you have, have you given it a try? This video is a guide to get you started. Just a short 5-minute round for you to have the experience and get your giggles out of the way. 

Some people feel pretty silly when they first start tapping, I know I did. I was introduced to EFT in the late 90's and have used it sporadically for one thing or another all along. Recently I've been using it on a daily basis and getting outstanding results.

I've been diving deep into my habitual beliefs. My self-talk or beliefs has shaped my life and some of them have blocked me from doing more in my life. Like the limiting belief that I'm not worthy. This is an old theme for me. I tell myself on a regular basis I'm not good enough, I say things like 'why would anyone want to listen to me" and "I don't have the right education" and so on. 

Then one day not so...

Italian Chicken Recipe

I like cooking in the oven on these cold winter days. 

I looked at my weeks schedule and realized it was going to be a tough week to cook full meals unless I planned for them. As I was looking over the Sunday grocery store ads so I could figure out this weeks menu I heard on the news how cold it was going to be. That helped me narrow down what to cook, or at least how to cook.

Making dinner in the oven is wonderful for a couple of reasons. One, I am often chilly and walk around in the winter like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, all bundled up. When I have the oven on it warms up the house and I can remove my top layer for a couple of hours. The other reason is how good the house smells. The aromas of what is being baked fills the house and just has a comfort effect for me. 

I saw boneless, skinless chicken thighs on sale in the Sunday ad and thought I'd make an Italian marinated chicken dinner one night. I like doing meals that I can make ahead of time and then when I get...

2 Tips to Prevent Getting the Flu

Head this nasty flu off by implementing these two things!

We all know to wash our hands and wipe off all the handles around the house when someone has been sick, including the toilet handle. We've been told to eat more foods with Vitamin C and make a pot of fresh chicken soup. These are all great things to do.

One that I add to this list is to wash my hands after I've ordered from a menu when eating out. I always imagine someone who just coughed all over it or a snotty sticky child holding it. I know, gross. This has been something I've done for years, after ordering and handing the menus to the waiter I get up and thoroughly wash my hands before eating. I am also that person who wraps a napkin around the condiment bottle and shakers for the same reasons. 

I don't use antibacterial stuff other then the wipes at the grocery stores for the cart handles.  I think we need to be exposed to some germs to keep our immune system from sleeping on the job. Good 'ol warm water and...

If you'd like to add a zip to your cooking you'll enjoy reading this article because it's all about spices and herbs and how to add flavor without adding calories. There is a bonus too, many of these spices and herbs have some medicinal value to them. (can I get a high five!!)

Did you know as you age, whether you're 20 or 40+ years old, you are losing the number of taste buds on your tongue? Due to this reduction in buds, we need to add herbs and spices to enjoy many of the foods we like. It's fun to explore cooking with these tasty additives, and using them on an assortment of foods, Playing with how they enhance and bring out flavors. 

I'm sure you know salt is a flavor enhancer and black pepper adds a bit of heat and pep when added but did you know Himalayan salt is rich in iodine, calcium, and magnesium as well as other trace minerals. Black pepper is a digestive aid! Who knew?! 

Below is a list I...
