(Easter decorations from Pottery Barn.)
(Easter candy's my absolute favorite.)
This little accessory would really help that motivation. (Unless my bike got stolen because the baskets are sooo cute.)
Serve with half cup carrot sticks.
It's funny to read a recipe for a honey/pbj-esque sandwich, isn't it?
I've never thought to add a pear, but it sounds quite good. Don't forget the 1/2 c. of carrots. (After all, you don't want to get too crazy with those carrots.)
"The Science of Sleep,” starring a dreamy Gael Garcia Bernal about his dreamy, dreams.
"Running With Scissors.” Wait. I'm not positive that I want to see this. I couldn't even finish the book it was so disturbing. But, there is a good cast.And, out next week is "Marie Antoinette” starring Kristen Dunst. I've heard the storyline is not thrilling, but that visually it is. The 80'ish soundtrack is also a plus.
And, I'll admit "Talledega Nights" was not my favorte Will Ferrell movie, so hopefully I'll have better luck with ”Stranger Than Fiction.” I like it when comedians take a dramatic turn... This is out 2/27.
Recently, she and her trainer, Bob Greene, launched a new campaign to help loose or maintain weight. And this can actually be useful to us… Why? They have chosen products that we already use and grouped them into snacks and foods clearly labeled for us to know that they are healthy.
For example, I love Yoplait’s Harvest Peach Yogurt… and, so does Bob Greene. If you’ve noticed, recently, they’ve placed approved BestLife labels on the yogurt, as it’s included in the diet plan. So, now I am aware that Yoplait is a pretty healthy snack. Yesss.
Another? 8th Continent’s Chocolate Soy Milk. I’ve been a Soy Milk drinker for years. I love it. And, the Chocolate can be a delicious treat. I like to drink it for breakfast, or add some bananas and ice to create a shake. This too is included in the approved BestLife diet.
They’ve even started placing approved BestLife labels on Barilla’s Whole Grain pasta, which if you’ve tried it; you know it’s really good.
To begin, they tell you to avoid the following foods:
· Soft Drinks (But, if you absolutely have to, drink only 1 per day.)
· Foods containing Trans Fat: What does that mean anyway? Trans Fat is mainly in processed foods, including: frozen meals, crackers (although, Wheat Thins Reduced Fat have 0g.), ramen noodles (but, Oriental is so good!) chips, and candy.
· Fried Foods
· White Bread (Wheat bread=staying full longer. Whole grain should be at the beginning of the ingredients list.)
· Regular Pasta (This’ll be a difficult one for me.)
· High-Fat Dairy Products: Milk, Yogurt, Ice Cream and Whipped- just take the lower-fat versions.
I’ve signed up on the website to receive recipes and ideas, so I’ll keep you posted. For me, I’m not looking to drop 15 pounds… I just like to be better informed, ya know? So, hopefully I can help you stay informed too. (Besides, isn’t swimsuit season just around the corner? And, I don’t want to feel like I have to wear a wet-suit all summer.)
