RULE: Meet other Proteins

I’m not here to take sides. If you love meat, you love meat. I get it. Sometimes the smell of a cheeseburger on a nearby grill, sends me floating cartoon-style on a levitating wave of vapor in the direction of said burger.  But most of the time, I’m looking for other protein options. I used to think Beef, Chicken, and Pork were the only proteins … Continue reading RULE: Meet other Proteins

RULE: Move Every Day

Do something active everyday. Our bodies were intended to move. We sit in cars or on trains on the way to and from work; we sit at desks for 8-9 hours a day, come home to sit at a dinner table and then on to the couch for a solid 1-2 hours of TV. No wonder if we make it to 90, we appear crouched; … Continue reading RULE: Move Every Day

I found it thrilling to discover the numerous variations of dishes combining the same enticing ingredients: cheese, cream cheese, sour … Continue reading RULE: Portion Control
