The other day I made this Vegetable Pasta Stew for my family. At first I did not plan to take photo of it and publish it on the internet, but then I thought – why not? It is simple enough, tastes great and it is healthy in every way,: low-fat, low-carbs, full of minerals, vitamins and fiber. I hope you’ll like it as much as we do... more...more
This recipe promises a delicious and juicy roasted chicken every time., it's interchangeable with turkey; this is actually the recipe that I make for the Thanksgiving Turkey! The key to roasting any meat, especially poultry is after removing it from the oven you have to wrap it tightly in tinfoil and let it rest for 20 minutes; no more no less.http://lisagcooks.com/lisa-g-news/roasted-chicken-2/ ...more
After doing some research on gastro-intestinal care, I have learned three things;1. Water is your best friend.2. Movement will encourage more movement. And finally, 3. FLAXSEED!!! Eating diets high in fiber encourage healthy bodily functions. Oh boy! At long last, this is the holy grail for my fledgling colon!For breakfast, I whipped up this little number.

S K I N C A N C E R A N D M Y H E A L T HGathering Tools To Build A New Life Looking back on things, I probably should have seen this coming. They say hindsight is 20/20, right? Maybe it was years and years of daily double sessions in the tanning bed followed by marathon bouts of sun worship, maybe it was a lifetime of smoking, maybe the drinking and partying in my twenties, maybe it was the stress of too much grown up responsibility in my thirties and forties (lol)...maybe maybe maybe......more

Ah the holidays! It’s that time of year for pumpkin pie, eggnog, mashed potatoes, and your Aunt Betty’s killer candied yams. And if you have diabetes, everything I just wrote made you think: "OMG. My blood sugars are screwed for the next two months."
True, the holidays present some unique challenges for people with diabetes. Most specifically, there’s a ton of not-so-diabetes-friendly food around and very little time to sneak in some exercise. But they don’t have to be a total disaster (at least in the glucose department. As far as your crazy in-laws, I can’t help ya there). In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month, here are some tips for navigating the holidays for folks that are new to the diabetes world from a person who knows a thing or two about it.

I could eat Mexican food every single day if I could! Today I was craving some tacos, so I scrounged up the items that I had in my kitchen and created a filling meal. All the products are bought from Whole foods except the seasoning. I used chili seasoning instead of taco seasoning, because taco seasoning has WAYYY to much sodium and there was not a big difference in the spices. At least I didn’t notice a difference!...more
