We’re Back – And On Track

Tuesday 29 March 2011 . (0)

TweetBefore I get myself caught up on reporting on my trials and tribulations of Acing My Health, I’d like to do a quick report on what’s been keeping me from blogging regularly. It has been a mad house in our little world. Not long after returning from Australia where I managed to get through a. Continue Reading…

Dining in the Buff

Tuesday 29 March 2011 . (4)

TweetDepending on whom you speak to, the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet is either the greatest invention known to Mankind or the scrourge of the earth.   Personally, in order to keep my calorie consumption in check, I tend to avoid them but that doesn’t mean I don’t love them.   For an ADD eater like me, a.

This F^*(ing Fridge

Tuesday 29 March 2011 . (1)

TweetIt is now family lore that I taught my daughter to swear. I am not proud of it and I think every mother has that crystal clear moment when they realize that their 2 year old has heard and understood EVERY WORD she has uttered. When our daughter was 2 years old, we lived in. Continue Reading…

TweetI have used this recipe with canned pumpkin or leftover squash and they each have their highlights. Either way, they taste like pumpkin pie for dinner.  Try going with mascarpone cheese and demerara sugar instead of the usual  maple syrup.  And don’t wait for Pancake Tuesday! Serves 4 Prep time: 20-25 minutes 1 cup cooked. Continue Reading…

Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Monday 28 March 2011 . (0)

TweetAny variety of  leftover cooked squash can be turned into outstanding soup in a heartbeat.  The beautiful part of this soup is that it is tasty, filling and clocks in at about 200 calories per bowl which is perfect for those “I just can’t stop eating” days! If you want to make this soup from. Continue Reading…

Roasted Radicchio

Monday 28 March 2011 . (0)

TweetI adore Radicchio, the bitterness and the bright red color make me happy.  They also signal nutrients that aren’t widely consumed in the rest of my day so I work it in whenever I can.  My family tolerates it in small doses so I need a few tricks up my sleeve to make it more. Continue Reading…

Five Spice Butternut Squash

Monday 28 March 2011 . (0)

TweetSubstituting baked squash for rice or potatoes is a great way to lower the carb and calories of any meal.  Squash is lower on the Glycemic Index scale as well so you won’t have a surge of insulin to deal with either (unless you have baklava for dessert…don’t do it!) Serving Size  : 4  +. Continue Reading…
