Eat Well Without Spending More

brooke Friday, July 10th, 2015
Most of us want to be healthy. I mean, who wouldn’t? Health is wealth. And with the rise of every disease imaginable, it is no surprise that people are watching their health and nutrition more these days.
Eating well is a basic to having good health. What we put in our mouths is a huge and important factor that will determine whether we enjoy good health or suffer from a poor one.
Not only that but eating well means cutting back on unnecessary extra weight. Many people think that to have a good body they need to starve themselves and stick on diets that do more harm than good in the long run. But, most of the time it is as simple as eating the right kinds of foods – more fruits and vegetables and less processed ones.
Here are some tips so you can start eating well without breaking the bank;
1. Take Advantage of Weekends – this is a great time to really give more time to your cooking. Use weekends to prepare your meals and prepare a veggie based meal without any meat. Weekend is a great time because you are not in a hurry and you can have all the time you want. You’ll also find that this is more cost efficient and that veggie meals are actually less expensive compared to meals with meat.
2. Pack your Meals – fastfoods are not only unhealthy but also expensive as compared to homecook meals. Schedule your time and plan what you will cook for the entire week. Make time to prepare these meals and pack them to work or to school so that you won’t have to buy from a resto or worst go to a fastfood store.
3. Peanuts for Snacks – peanuts are definitely one of the healthiest and easiest to prepare snacks you can have for yourself and your family. They cut your risk for cardiovascular diseases. A handful of peanut is full of nutritrion and can give you that extra energy and mind boost that you need. Steer away from potato chips and junk foods that are not only more expensive but are also filled with ingredients that can harm your body in the long run.
4. Veggie Salad for Lunch – you should also try having a vegetable salad for lunch. They’re not only easy to prepare and bring but they are super good and healthy for you. You will surely notice a difference in your energy when you eat salads for lunch instead of foods that are difficult to digest, expensive and hard on your digestion.

Try it Before you Buy It Cosmetics

miriam Thursday, February 24th, 2011

virtual makeoverMakeup has always been sort of a mystery to me.  I grew up watching my mother put on makeup and that alone kept me away from makeup for a long time.  I love my mother dearly, but she did not know how to use makeup.  Her mascara was clumped so much that it often looked like hairy spider legs sticking out over her eyes.  She used lipstick for blush and would rub it around on her cheeks until it was sufficiently dark.  Her eye shadow was usually a bright shade of blue that stuck out like a sore thumb.  Her lipstick seemed to spend more time on her teeth than it did on her lips.  All in all, she was not someone that I aspired to look like as a teenager.  Now, in my adult life, I realize how beautiful my mom was, she just didn’t know how to utilize her natural beauty.  I have resorted to using very little makeup in hopes that I won’t over do it like she did.  Because of this, I need help learning how to use makeup properly to enhance my own natural beauty.

Give the Gift of Serenity

serenity Give the Gift of SerenityWe live in a crazy, busy world.  Cities are getting bigger and more crowded, people spend more and more time working, and less and less time at home, and it seems like we never have enough time to do what we need to do.  All the advances in modern technology that are supposed to make our lives more simple have in fact made them more complicated.  We can now do things faster than ever before, so we fill our extra time with even more stuff to do.  Does anyone see a problem with this?

New Years Resolutions Here I Come!

Fitness Time

For many their New Year’s resolutions are thought into and serious items. If it is to stop an addiction, or reach out to your family more, the list is endless. I believe for many, at the top of the list would be to get back in shape after the holidays.  We all know during the holidays instead of going for a morning jog in the snow it is easier to make cinnamon rolls and get snug on the couch. Well the New Year is quickly approaching and soon enough we will need to get back on track with our health. There are so many great deals available now online and at gyms such as 24 Hour Fitness that I didn’t know existed.

Mineral Make Up

amyw Friday, January 29th, 2010

2126652 Mineral Make Up I love make up and anything cosmetic like. I love trying out new things, colors, and products.  And, being a mom, unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning and play around with stuff.  I’m always in a time crunch or have a small boy pulling on my leg or getting into things in the bathroom.  So, time is of the essence. But, I do like to at least “put my face on” most days to avoid the stay at home mom syndrome of frumpiness.

Fragrance Gift for Mother’s Day

amyw Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

441w Fragrance Gift for Mothers DayI recently discovered the ease of buying perfume on line this past March on my mother’s birthday.  She has long worn a perfume called Gem but she couldn’t find it anywhere.  She asked me on a recent trip to Paris to check the duty free shops for it.  After looking in several, one of the sales clerks informed me that it had in fact been discontinued.  So, I decided to look on line to see if I could still find some unopened bottles out there.  And, there were!  One of the places that sells it is Fragrance X.  I found others on Ebay, but the prices at Fragrance X were better and I knew it was a legitimate company so it would be safe and trustworthy.  I was afraid I’d get some skunky old bottle from someone on Ebay.  Anyway, the shipment of the perfume safely arrived at my mom’s house just in time for her birthday and it was perfect!  So, if you have a fragrance that your mom used to wear, or even one you loved but can’t find anymore, try looking online and check out Fragrance X on couponbuzz.com as well.

The Colon Cleansing Craze

Jesi Monday, April 20th, 2009

acai The Colon Cleansing CrazeHave you seen all the hype about the weight loss that was mentioned on Oprah? She and Dr. Oz spoke about the greatest super foods and some of their health effects. From this main episode, hundreds of marketers have starting to sell Acai Berry pills, drinks, and supplements, as well as the Colon Cleanse. Well, I have just finished my first week of a two week cleanse. Wish me luck!

I purchased a product that takes 2 weeks and is pretty gentle. I am not sure all of the effects this will have on my body, but getting my colon clean sounds like a good idea. Colon cancer runs in my family so I guess that I can’t be too careful.

Mom's Yoga Kit

Being a mother, I am aware of the approaching Mother’s Day holiday not to far away.  I try not to get my hopes up about what my husband and daughter will do because I know they love me and appreciate what I do.  However, I won’t complain if they do something really special or thoughtful for me.  With this in mind, I find myself seeing possible Mother’s Day gifts from several of the merchants that I am the guide for.  One place that has a lot of great gift options is Cooking.com.  I know, some moms hate the idea of getting household items for gifts but I am not one of those people.  Anything that can help me with my day to day chores is a welcomed friend.
