Turm Around Bright Eyes: Part II

Turm Around Bright Eyes: Part II

Turmeric isn’t just found in the food and condiments of far flung times and continents. It is also present in your everyday bright yellow hotdog mustard. In fact it’s the turmeric that gives mustard its color, and not as we all thought (admit it!), the mustard seeds, which alone would just produce a drab gray paste. How ballpark memories would change. The creamy white bun! The succulent red-pink dog! And…urgh, what is that glumly.
Turm Around Bright Eyes: Part I

Turm Around Bright Eyes: Part I

For most people, ‘hot’ and ‘humid’ when combined are the very worst type of weather condition. Steamy, close (and gross!), moist climates usually mean you need to take a shower directly after you’ve taken a shower, and the only outfit that provides any degree of comfort is your birthday suit. This type of environment may be a sweaty hell for many a city-slicking delicate (including this writer), but for turmeric it’s the perfect situation.

I don't want to miss one long drive, one night of cooking together or one walk in the rain. My small.

I know that a healthy heart is important.

I want to do 2 small changes. I eat so fast. My change is that I am going to eat slower so hopefully I feel more satisfied and eat less. I have 3 kids and eat on the run. The other change is that I am going to go for a walk after dinner. Make it a family exercise event.

Lisa

Salt is my favorite thing! I know it will be hard to do but I will not put the saltshaker on the table when I eat. I know this small change will help my body. My Dad has high blood pressure so I am going to do it for him and show him that even I can change and maybe he will too.

Danielle

I live in FL and the sun shines almost every day. The small change I will make is to use sunscreen in my makeup so my face is always protected. I’ll slather on the sunscreen every single day. My mom had skin cancer and I don’t want to follow in her footsteps.

Healthy Winter Recipes

Healthy Winter Recipes

It’s only natural to clamor for comfort food during the winter months. With the chill of the winter months and snow-filled activities like skiing and skating, we pack in the calories as if we have permission to indulge until Spring returns.
