30 Ways to Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease and Stroke

I came across a very interesting article in Reader’s Digest. It stated that the death rate from heart disease and stroke in the United States significantly decreased within the last 50 years.

Happy Valentine’s Day -Know Your Roses

It is a well known expression that “Diamonds are girl’s best friend”, but I think roses also fall in the same category.

Veggie Burger – Recipe

I never thought I would like the taste of a veggie burger, so at first I purchased some frozen ones, Veggie Medley by Gardenburger, and realized that they were not as bad as I thought. Since I am not really a hamburger lover, veggie burger earned my approval.

I looked up some recipes for veggie burgers, and came up with this modified version to fit The Fat Smash Diet.

Foundation – Phase Two-The Fat Smash Diet

Congratulations!

We successfully completed the Detox Phase of the Fat Smash Diet.

Didn’t the 9 days just fly by? Aren’t you feeling better already? I sure am, and it feels great!

Phase Two is much easier than Phase one, in regards to food selection. Even though we still continue with all the foods from Phase One, we are making new additions. This phase lets us get back to many of the foods we were missing during the past nine days. It still is very important to eat 4-5 smaller meals per day, and healthful snacks in between.

Super Bowl Party – Favorite Foods

You don’t have to be a fan of any team, or even love watching football, but this should not stop you from having lots of fun attending or hosting a Super Bowl Party.

Everyone is always looking forward to the excitement of the game, the half-time entertainment, the greatest commercials, and of course, lots of delicious food, and plenty of drinks.
