And did for the next 22 years… I was an outgoing, out spoken extrovert. There was this persona in me that would take over and make everyone laugh, be the life of the party, be loud and adventurous. This persona helped me get through what I consider to be the toughest years of my life. It was all a cover up. No matter how...

Do you want to lose weight?

Want to lose weight? Eat that fat! Eating more dietary fat for breakfast will boost your metabolism and help you with fat loss! Your body is in fat-burning mode when you first wake up, and you can keep that going if you keep your carbs intake low in the morning and fats high. A study from 2010 published in the International Journal of Obesity examined the effect of different types of foods and timing of intake on the development of metabolic syndrome characteristics.

Breakfast? What the Heck! by Janice Lubbe

Breakfast? What the heck!   For me cooking shouldn't be a schlep or time consuming or even costly. I want quick, simple, fuss free satisfying meals. So as a mom of 3 growing kids, a wife, business owner, juggling household & various community responsibilities... How does one still fit in time to prepare meals, 3 for that matter, big enough to feed everyone or even creatively?
