Its Fashion Flash Monday!

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…

This week Staness of  Menopause Makeover is hosting Fashion Flash.  I love her supportive and effective advice on weight control.  Want to know  your ideal weight?  Just enter your height and gender and the  number pops up  within seconds.  I was happy to learn that  I was  less than 7 pounds away.  That’s  a number I can handle.

Menopause Makeover also  has  a great selection of easy, delicious and health recipes.   This week I made her tilapea with cherry tomatoes and black olives.  Flavored with  a bit of white wine, olive oil and garlic, it clocked in at less than 250  calories  per delicious serving.  

This week I picked up The Bag Lady Papers, a   small pink book with a big impact. Author   Alexandra Penney  had been  a well known lifestyle writer who  lost  her  entire life savings when she invested  them … Continue Reading…
