Small changes eventually lead to a healthy lifestyle
Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno…  The kids love this one! Modified some. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook ground turkey, venison or extra lean hormorne/antibiotic free hamburger meat, carrots, onion and garlic until browned.  Add chicken or vegetable stock, tomatoes, quinoa ziti pasta and basil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until pasta is al dente.

Mandy's Meditations
Perhaps there is no day so completely free of gastronomic guilt than Thanksgiving. It is the day when the confines of societal standards permit us (and even encourage us) to throw caution to the wind with pride and indulge in a joyful bounty of feasting with our loved ones. Let me convey my belief that these rituals are vitally important, especially in times like these when parents may be working overtime (and sometimes even two jobs) to make financial ends meet.

Try this recipe on the weekend and refrigerate or freeze for lunch or dinner the following week on days that are too hectic to cook.  I would suggest investing in a vacumn food sealer so that you will always have access to a healthy low carb meal. Place chicken pieces in large baking dish.  Sprinkle with pepper and oregano.  Lay onion, mushrooms, and celery on top of chicken pieces.  Pour in 1/2 cup of water to cover bottom of dish.  Spread tomatoes over chicken, and top with sprinkles of basil and parsley.  Bake at 325 degrees for two&

Sometimes chocolate is added to Mexican dishes to cut the heat and enrich flavor.  In this reipe, it adds richness and deepens the color without making it sweet.  I use dark chocolate because studies show it has added health benefits.1 pound ground lean round, turkey or venison (I sometimes use ground lamb or veal from the natural meat section at HEB.)1 cp prechopped onion (short on time, use the dried onion)1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic, undrained1 cp hot water2 tbsp chili powder

I have always loved chicken and sausage gumbo.  Unfortunately, when I became serious about changing my lifestyle to clean eating, I thought I had to give it up.  Something about my mom's recipe including frying bacon grease and flour to make the rue just didn't seem like it would fall under the eating clean category.  However, I discovered that I could still have my cake and eat it too, not literally.  But, I found a Weight Watchers recipe for shrimp and sausage gumbo that I tweaked a little by replacing the shrimp with chi

While there is often an assumption that bottled water is purer than tap water, this is not likely the case. Bottled water and tap water are actually regulated by different agencies; in most cases the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations on bottled water are less stringent than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations that govern public water utilities. Typical bottled water plants are tested weekly, whereas municipal water plants are tested multiple times daily.

"Your Body, Your Move!" A Blog from Move Well Fitness, LLC.
During a recent visit (May 16th if my memory serves me correct) to the scale at the gym where I work, I jumped on it and it read 190 lbs. Ouch! That was a shock to me as I had not been trying to gain any weight nor had my workout routine warranted any weight gain.  I made up in my mind that day that I had to change a few things in with my lifestyle. Here is what I've changed in the past week and a half that has me down to 180 lbs. and still counting (my goal weight is somewhere b/w 173-175 lbs.)!
