Popcorn In A Pot. When I Saw What She Did, I'll Never Use The Microwave Again!

I’m going to try this as soon as my supply of microwave popcorn is gone:
“The smell of freshly popped popcorn is one of my favorite things. But once you smell what stove-top popped corn smells like, you'll never want to microwave your popcorn again. And the taste?? WOW! A MILLION times better than the microwaved stuff. This will quickly become your new favorite treat. And the fact that it only takes a minute to do is really enticing to me. Why would you ever settle for the bagged microwave stuff, when this is so easy?”

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup:

graphic (17)Recipe by Terryn
"Delicious and EASY zesty soup recipe that uses only 6 canned ingredients! Serve over tortilla chips, and top with shredded Cheddar cheese. Throw away the cans and no one will know that it is not from scratch!"image
from allrecipes.com

This recipe fits all my conditions: less than 8 ingredients, simple, adaptable. The reviews on “allrecipes” had several suggestions for spicing it up.

I replaced the beans with Minute Multi-Grain Medley (rice,1 packet), substituted frozen diced chicken (another suggestion is rotisserie chicken from Kroger). I also experimented with Cream of Chicken Soup in place of chicken broth and also kept the broth and added a can of Cream of Chicken.

Play with it, its good for a pot of soup to dip in through the week at lunch.                                                 GlennDL

10 Myths About Body Fat


by Maria Trimarchi

What's one of the things about body fat that most people believe is true? How about this one: Muscle burns more calories than fat. While yes, our skeletal muscle does burn more calories every day than our body fat does, it's not as notable as you may think. It's really a surprisingly negligible difference when you're talking about how many calories are consumed for energy while you're just sitting around. The calories the body needs just to take care of its survival is called our resting energy expenditure, and when you're not exercising or expending your energy, your fat tissue burns two calories for every pound of your total body weight — but your skeletal muscle burns just six calories per pound [source: McClave].

7 Misleading Health Claims that You Should Never Believe

from care2.comanim (3)

Here are the seven misleading health claims that top my list.

1. Natural. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have a definition for the word “natural,” so companies use it with abandon.

2. Real. Really? Food companies use this term to highlight a “premium” ingredient. As Mr. Bradley points out: “One ingredient does not make a box or bag REAL food.”

3. Organic. This one is interesting because the FDA does regulate the use of the word “organic.” But did you know you can buy organic jelly beans? And organic pizza rolls? Those aren’t healthy choices. Organic doesn’t mean healthy.

4. Whole Grain. All it takes is a minute trace of a whole grain in a product for food companies to be allowed to label it “whole grain.” And the benefits of whole grains are frequently offset by added sugars, artificial colors, and other additives.

Weight Loss Magic Soup

scalesThis recipe has been all over the internet via Facebook.

To meet my requirement for fewer ingredients and KISS (Keep It Simpler Stupid) I cutout the highlighted ingredients, substituted at least two packages of frozen vegetables and added a cup of frozen diced chicken and another cup of diced meat such as cutup turkey sausage.

I also eliminated the first step of the instructions and throw every thing into a crock pot for 2-3 hours. For this I increase the broth and V-8 juice (on a 1 to 1 basis) until the crockpot is full. Makes me a supply for a week.

Decoding your produce:

What’s with the barcode on your produce?  Yes there is a code and a number that identifies the product when you check out. BUT, there is more to the code than just pricing:


The stickers or labels attached to fruit and some vegetables have more of a function than helping scan the price at the checkout stand. The PLU code, or price lookup number printed on the sticker, also tells you how the fruit was grown. By reading the PLU code, you can tell if the fruit was genetically modified, organically grown or produced with chemical fertilizers, fungicides, or herbicides.

Top 10 Sleep Mistakes and Their Solutions

Although we may not like to admit it, many of the sleep problems we experience are the result of bad habits and behaviors. We stay up late or sleep in late. We eat foods that disagree with us or enjoy a drink late at night, oblivious to its disruptive impact on our sleep rhythms. Over time, we teach our body not to sleep. cartoons (2)For relief we often turn to sleeping pills, which mask rather than solve the problem, and can lead to addiction. Ultimately for real success, with insomnia as with any chronic problem, one must look for the underlying imbalances and root causes and address those.

Here are the common sleep “mistakes” I see in my practice and their solutions.

Wendy's Chili Recipe Ingredients:

I love Wendy's Chili, except for the over abundance of beans.
So if there an ingredient that mothers you then pluck it, replace-hit, and savor it!
Here’s a copycat recipe for homemade like Wendy’s Chili.
10 ingredients, brown the meat, combine and cook until onion and pepper are tender.

Fresh Cucumber Salad

Connie Wally Littrell shared Hillbilly Recipes.'s photo.
Put vinegar, sugar, celery seed and mustard seed in a pot and bring to a boil
Remove from heat and let cool for one hour
Pour mixture over salad
Put in jars and store in refrigerator
Will keep up to 2 months
Makes 2 quart jars

Crisp Cucumber Salsa:

Losing weight with Skinny Fiber

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and seasoned salt. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
Note: 1/4 cup is only 16 calories!


You should drink at least three 8 oz glasses per day, they say the longer it sits, the better it tastes. You can eat them as well but they are intended as flavoring and still work, so that is a personal choice. The Vitamin C turns fat into fuel, the tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, and the cucumber makes you feel full. Try it for 10 days and see what you think!


Cook beef and onions over medium heat; drain. Add tomatoes, carrots, celery, potatoes, water, rice, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes until vegetables and rice are tender. Uncover; simmer 20-30 minutes longer or until thickened.
Note: Serve with buttered cornbread.


Makes eight 1 cup servings.
