Helpful hints for weight loss ideas & cooking from Colleen

  • If you are on a diet, drink Jasmine Tea or lighter teas that have their own natural sweetness, you will not have to add sugar.
  • You can make your own spiced teas and ciders. Heat tea or cider to a boil. If you place orange peels, cloves (whole) and cinnamon sticks into cheesecloth, tie and seep into hot tea or cider. Leave 15 minutes or to taste.
  • If you drink about 4 cups of Green Tea everyday you can help your body fight cancer.
  • That you can rid yourself of belly fat eating peanut butter. They say if you eat peanut butter everyday you can loose 25 lbs a year.
  • That ½ cup of blue berries everyday can double the amount of antioxidants in your system and unlock the healing power in your body.
  • Gelatin is high in amino acids and if you eat a daily dose it will reduce joint pain.
  • Always chill juices prior to adding beverages
  • Clove garlic and pepper become stronger when frozen.
  • Instant potatoes make good stew thickeners.
  • Spray grills with Pam prior to using to prevent sticking and help with cleanup.
  • Use oil sparingly when making sauces. This allows other flavors to come through.
  • Meat that is chilled will cut thinner.
  • Tomatoes help to tenderize roast.
  • Lemon juice rubbed on fish will help to tenderize it.
  • When baking bread place a small dish of water nearby to help keep crust from becoming too hard and brown.
  • You can warm bread in a microwave if you have a glass of water inside with the bread to keep in moisture.
  • If you are baking with glass pans, reduce the temperature by 25 degrees.
  • If you enjoy a spicy aroma, toss orange and lemon rinds into the fireplace.

Ever Wonder What Your Dessert Choice Says About You?

Someone sent in this DESSERT ANALYSIS for you to review - Just for fun! If all of the desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose? (Sorry, you can only pick one!)
Angel Food - Brownies - Lemon Meringue - Vanilla Cake/Chocolate Icing - Strawberry Short Cake - Chocolate Cake/Chocolate Icing - Ice Cream - Carrot Cake. After you choose your favorite one, read your personality results:
· Angel food - Sweet, loving and, cuddly, you love all warm and fuzzy items. You are a little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at times.
· Brownies - You are adventurous and love new ideas. You are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.
· Lemon Meringue - Smooth, sexy, & articulate with your hands. You are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have many friends.
· Vanilla Cake/Chocolate Icing - You're fun loving, sassy and humorous. Not very grounded in life, very indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.
· Strawberry Short Cake - You’re romantic, warm and loving. You care about other people and can be counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt. You can be overly emotional and sensitive at times.
· Chocolate Cake/Chocolate Icing - You're sexy, always ready to give and receive. You’re very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.

Calorie Counting Help

Once you determine that you want to count calories, you must determine what your daily calorie intake should be. Let’s assume that you and your doctor have decided that you want you to weigh 160 pounds. You can determine what your daily calorie intake as follows. If you are a woman, multiply your desired weight by 11 to determine your calorie intake.
If you are a man, multiply your desired weight by 12 to determine your calorie intake.


Remember, for these examples, you and your doctor have decided that your desired weight is 160 pounds.
In this 1st example, you are a female who wants to weigh 160 pounds.
 160 x 11 = 1760 daily calorie intake.
30% of your calorie intake should be “good” fat
1760 x 30%= 528 
528 divided by 9 = 58.6
or eat 59 grams of “good” fat daily.
In this 2nd example, you are a male who wants to weigh 160 pounds.
   160 x 12 = 1920 daily calories.
30% of your calorie intake should be “good” fat
1920 x 30%= 576
576 divided by 9 = 64
or eat 64 grams of “good” fat daily.
