Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready to hit the ground running in 2016! I apologize for the lack of posts over the last month. I had computer issues and Mr Forever Diet surprised me with a new laptop for Christmas! I am excited to be able to have a much more regular blogging schedule over the next year.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Having our whole family together is the best and as the boys get older, I appreciate the time we can spend together even more!
Here is a great recipe to use up some of that leftover turkey!
This week marks the beginning of the holiday season! I thought I would share some realistic tips to help you stay on track while still enjoying this special time of the year.
These are busy times for many of us: School, Work, Holidays, Life…. The list can seem endless at times. One glance at the internet or Facebook can be overwhelming with all the recipes, meal planning ideas and seemingly perfect meals people get on their dinner tables each and every night.
I will be honest, sometimes just getting dinner on the table at our house is a feat in itself. Needless to say, sometimes we all need a little help with dinner.
If I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me if I hand out candy on Halloween I would be rich (not really but you get my point) I never resorted to mini boxes of raisins, pencils or stickers. Another common question – Do I allow my kids to eat the candy they get while Trick or Treating. My answer is always the same – Yes I hand out candy and Yes my kids were/are allowed to eat the candy they were given.
Happy Friday! It is starting to get chilly here in New Hampshire and warm, comforting meals are usually on the agenda. Often, comfort food is associated with rich sauces and extra calories. This does not need to be the case. Putting the focus on fresh, whole, high fiber foods such as beans and veggies and pairing with a smaller portion of meat can be just the trick to creating yummy, healthy recipes.
