Thinking Healthy as You Prepare . . .

I signed up for SparkPeople on the internet a long time ago because it seemed to have a lot of good advise that were reasonable and do-able. I have found some great guide lines for helping me lose and then hold my weight. Isn't it great what we can find, at no cost?

Whenever I label a post, "Better for Your Health", I have defatted and probably lowered the carbs & salt in it. I have been shocked at what the food industry has created as they throw instant food type products at us. Water retention & diabetes have taught me a lot! The same eating principles are good for everyone, and could actually help others from developing these health conditions, which are terrible common in today's world.

This morning, while checking out some of the emails from SparkPeople, I found the website showing Chef Meg's videos where she is demonstrating ways to make healthier versions of some pretty yummy foods. Check it out HERE. I cruised through a few of them. They sound delicious, many can be used as leftovers, a must in my house, and pretty simple to make . . . . without too much invested time.

Sparkpeople also is publishing some top tips for losing weight and improving health, successfully. By successfully, I mean, permanently. You can find the first nine tips HERE.

Keeping this in mind, I will repost the Orange Chicken I made last night.
