Eating up your Wednesday

You know those incredibly picky eaters? To confess...thats me.

Because I am so picky, and prefer REAL foods, and food that is nutritious for me...I will be devoting some of my blog posts to eating healthy, in an unhealthy world. But, you may think, "I am way too busy!" Or "It costs too much!" Alas, these truths are evident. But, let me show you a few fast options that are still healthy for you!

Instead of: Soft drinks
Choose: Water

Instead of: Cheeseburger
Choose: Hamburger

Instead of: Salty sides
Choose: Fruits or veggie sides

Instead of: Fried
Choose: Grilled

Instead of: White bread
Choose: Whole grain or wheat bread

These are five easy, simple substitutes to keep in mind, as you are eating out.

Hope this helped! Remember:

Healthiness is the healthiest! :)

.::Environmentally Friendly Monday::.

Today, we will be collaborating the environment and energy together!

Next time your about to leave your house remember to stop and think:

"Are all my lights out?" and if you have the time, run around the house and turn off the lights. This will save you money, and it's better for you.

Also, make sure any chargers are not plugged in, such as camera chargers, laptops, and cell phones. As crazy as it seems if they are plugged in they will still use 5 watts per hour, when they are NOT recharging a battery.

I am known in my family as the person who literally walks around the house and flicks lights off, because when I see a light on that is not being used my mind automatically will begin to see..."$"

It's important to save money in these troubling economic times, so why not do the "Little" things that in the end will go a *long* way?

So, there you have it, and I challenge you to go flick a light off that is not currently being used. ;)
