Good Morning Strawberry Mango Plus Smoothie

Getting up in the morning and grabbing a healthy smoothie is a great way to start your day! A smoothie, done right, can be a high-fiber breakfast, which can help you lose weight if that's a personal goal. But even if you are not looking to lose weight, a healthy smoothie has all sorts of health benefits, like reducing the risk of heart disease. My Good Morning Strawberry Mango Plus Smoothie does all of that for you, and it tastes delicious as well!...more

Get Back on Track Healthy Cabbage Soup

Years ago I made a great cabbage soup whenever I felt the need to eat a vegetarian meal...a meal that would be healthy and delicious! Sometimes when we travel, it's hard to stay as healthy as we would like when eating out. Cabbage soup is my way of getting things back to where they need to be after traveling. I love cabbage, and there's no doubt I love soup, but this cabbage soup has so much more value for me because it is one of the healthiest soups I make....more

Thick Green Smoothie Magic with Almonds

Lately, I've been trying out some thicker smoothies that would be filling and could take the place of a meal while being nutritious and healthy as well. One thicker smoothie I put together was especially tasty. I think this smoothie was so good because of the addition of almonds. It's much thicker than my regular smoothie, but the almonds also make it more filling. Almonds are heart healthy and since I love them, I felt certain they would add something great to the flavor. I was right, and the result was my Thick Green Smoothie Magic with Almonds!...more

What's for Breakfast?

How many times have we all heard the phrase, "What's for Breakfast?" Breakfast is the most important meal of day according to many health conscious advocates. It's important not only to eat, but what you eat is important as well. Many believe that breakfast should be high in fiber to sustain you throughout the day and keep you from binge eating due to hunger between meals. This is as important as eating regular meals. What I have here in my "What's for Breakfast?" options are some healthy, filling, and satisfying meals for breakfast....more

Homemade Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread cookies have always been a favorite for me, since I was a little girl and first saw the red plaid packaging on a shelf at the store. That packaging meant I would bite into a shortbread cookie that would just about melt in my mouth. I loved them! I recently decided that I would like to create a rich buttery shortbread cookie for my holiday table this year, so I did just that. The result was my Homemade Shortbread Cookies, and they are delicious!...more

Delicious Sirloin Meatballs with Jalapenos or Not

Meatballs are not just for a meal of spaghetti and meatballs. There are restaurants that serve meatballs just on their own as a meal. Meatballs are also found in great sub sandwiches. Even more interesting is the fact that meatballs are now made with a variety of things, like jalapenos. We love meatballs both with and without jalapenos. It all depends on how we are having them or what our mood is at the time. Another important factor for us when eating meatballs is what type of meat and ingredients are used....more

When visiting Disney World in Orlando, Florida, one of the first theme parks many people will head to is the Disney World’s Magic Kingdom…with Cinderella’s Castle! The reason for this is because this was the theme park where it all began years ago....more

Healthy and Delicious All Natural Applesauce (No Sugar Added)

I love a good applesauce, whether it's with a meal or just by itself! What I don't like is when my applesauce has all kinds of sugars and other ingredients that are not really necessary. Apples have such great flavor on their own, so when we make applesauce, why do we think we need to add sugar. When I make apple sauce, I let the apples do the talking for me, so to speak. I add very little to my Healthy and Delicious All Natural Applesauce (No Sugar Added)!...more
