The whole goal of this article is to save you time. To me meal planning should save you time… period. If you plan ahead for simple meals at the beginning of the week you should not be going to the store more than once (unless a dozen eggs is dropped on the floor when you are not looking). Planning ahead will keep you from spending time spinning your wheels Wednesday afternoon coming up with dinner.Read More

When it is cooked I enjoy it a lot more!Read More

Did you know that you can actually get a vitamin, Vitamin D, from the sun. To me this is just about the coolest thing… just some good old fashion sunshine, the sunshine vitamin. Have you ever sat on a patio and had lunch with a friend and just left feeling better. It is probably that your body is all hyped up on Vitamin D (or that friend is just totally awesome). You quite literally need sunshine to survive. So use this excuse to get outside and catch some rays.Read More
So not to get all math on you - but - take your body weight and divide it in half - that is how many ounces you need to drink. So if you weigh 200 pounds you need to drink 100 ounces of water a day. Pretty simple right.
