FF1This  week the host of Fashion Flash  is Staness of Menopause Makeover. In addition to timely medical  advice and a great  health calculator and record keeper,   IMO Staness has some of the best low calorie recipes on the web.  This week I was looking for something to bring to a Super Bowl Party on Feb  3 that would not lower  the life expectancy of  the assembled sports fans.  Standard Super Bowl buffets  usually feature buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing, nachos with cheese and meat and every kind of chip on the planet.   I road tested the turkey chili recipe  from Staness and  it was perfect.  According to Staness, the  heat from  the  chili peppers increase   metabolism so that I actually burn calories as I eat it.  This chili is also  high in iron ( from the turkey) and in vitamin C ( from the tomatoes, … Continue Reading…

I’m always looking for new ways to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables  in my meals.  I’ve been exploring  new  items like spelt and flaxseed, but I keep falling  back  to my usual habits– tuna on whole wheat and dry grilled chicken breasts.  This summer I picked up a little paperback that has changed  both my food … Continue Reading…
