Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Just to let you know, even though a label may say a product has 0g trans fat, it still may. Many times a product DOES contain trans fat, but they aren't required to list it because it's technically 0g PER SERVING. But if you eat more than one serving, you're eating trans fat. Look for partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredients list to see if something actually does contain trans fat.


IT IS super healthy bread!! Fresh wheatberries ground in house. Can't get healthier than that :)


tater tots.... uhm...even if they don't have trans they still have plenty fat.. no? You could do your own baked home style fries instead if that would fit the bill. Just chop spuds as thin or as thick as you like... toss the chunks in a bit of veggie oil, bit of salt and pepper and bake at about 375 or so.. ...shake pan up to turn them every so often... very nice flavour and you control the amounts of salt and fats....

I bought a huge chunk of cheese today because it was on sale half price plus another dollar off at the till.... I never pay regular price for comes on sale often. I grate it, pack into little baggies about one cup servings and freeze it so I'm not tempted when I open the fridge... I'm trying to keep cholesterol under control with diet..but, if I can't... it'll mean meds that cost about $80 per month... don't want I work pretty diligently at it. I only use it once in a great while cooking and sort of put it on hubby's half of a casserole dish... lol......
