Spring Is Here: Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

To celebrate the coming of spring, I thought I would post a recipe using one of my favorite spring ingredients, strawberries. Strawberries are a great addition to your refrigerator because you can use them in about everything. Breakfast dishes, salads, entrees, and of course, desserts and baked goods.

Review: The Body Book by Cameron Diaz

I’ll be honest, I’ve only ever seen Cameron Diaz in My Best Friend’s Wedding and heard her as the voice of Fiona in Shrek. I never got to watch Charlie’s Angels growing up and for some reason I still haven’t. Strange, I know! Don’t shun me!...more

Do You Eat Organic Just to Be 'Cool'?

The Healthy Trinity for a Better Smoothie

I have to admit I am not a big fan of replacing meals with smoothies, but I love them for snacks. I just don’t get that much enjoyment out of drinking a meal, plus I feel really lightheaded a few hours later.Smoothies as a snack work well for me, especially at 4pm in the afternoon when I am starting to get hungry, and dinner is still some ways away. For me, filling up on some extra greens, fibre and protein helps me eat less at dinner, which is a good thing, especially when I eat late....more
