Eating well combined with exercise is the right lifestyle for you!


In order to change the way we eat and live our life, it takes a long process to reach a point that we can make fundamental changes in lifestyle. We have to reach a point that we truly understand that eating well is a lifestyle and not a part time hobby.

Eating for many of us is a battle. We love to eat, but we hate what is does to our bodies and health. Most are losing the battle because they don't realize until a major health challenge enters their life, that remaining overweight or worse yet, obese, has long term and possibly irreversible consequences.

Let's start focusing on things we can do to change the way we eat and exercise to make the most of busy lives. There are so many great foods that are healthy and delicious.

Start posting your favorite, delicious recipes that you love to make!

Drink natural juice... meaning make your own with fruit and frozen fruit. Some juices add sugar!!!

water is great!! I love unsweetened ice tea.. A lot of people drink sweet tea with sugar and don't realize how bad the sugar is:)

I lean more towards water, and when I crave flavor I use crystal lite

I don't drink soda, but even juices have lots of sugar. Chocolate is my weakness, but I'm going to have to make some changes. I'll try it tomorrow.

Cut out refined sugar.. like sodas, candies etc. That is the big one! Also, eat half portions. I eat small meals but more often. If you cut portions and all refined sugar you should lose the pounds... along with exercise:)

I ordered a Reuben sandwich with the dressing on the side. Didn't use
that much of it. I really need to lose 15 lbs. Right now I'd settle for 5 lbs.

I am sitting at Paneras right now.. but eating a roast beef sandwich with mustard only.. no mayo and an apple! I wanted the chips lol but thought the apple was healthier. The more fruit I eat, the more I crave it:)

Cob Salad


According to legend, this recipe was created by Bob Cobb, the owner of the Brown Derby Restaurant in Los Angeles, to use up some leftovers that had gathered in the refrigerator.

Serves 4 to 6

Cobb SaladDressing:
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup olive oil

Salad:
6 cups torn lettuce (preferably Bibb, romaine, iceberg, or a combination)
1 bunch watercress, trimmed
2 cups torn curly endive or frisée
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
6 slices turkey bacon(substituted for real bacon), cooked crisp and crumbled
3 cups diced cooked chicken
3 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled, and diced
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

1- To make the dressing, combine the vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and sugar in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil in a slow, steady stream until the dressing is smooth. Set aside.

2- To make the salad, line a large platter with the lettuce. On top of the lettuce, arrange the watercress and curly endive. Arrange the tomatoes, bacon, chicken, eggs, and avocado in a decorative manner on top. Sprinkle with the Roquefort cheese and chives.

3- Drizzle half the dressing over the salad. Serve at once, passing the remaining dressing at the table.
