So today is supposed to be review it Saturday and I don’t have anything to review, at least not with any authority. I have some new things I’ve purchased recently like a pair of Aqua Sphere Vista swim goggles but I’ve only used them once. I have a new cycling helmet I’ve had a few […]

  I remember one time, not so long ago On Twitter, I heard some chatter to and fro About a new snack, someone gave a tip, and they were all loopy about something called popchips.   Whatever, I thought, I have a  favorite snack. These, popchips or whatever;  they sound kind of whack. Nothing can […]

I was asked to review the new book from Special K. It is called “The Special K Challenge and Beyond.” I was a little leary because I had seen all the ads for the Special K challenge. I’m not the kind of girl who can eat two meals a day and snacks of a product […]

By show of hands, who loves breakfast? (Come on, raise those hands high!) Better yet, who loves waffles? Yeah, I thought so. Me too. In fact, I love waffles way more than I should, so I don’t eat them often. However, when I was contacted by Kellogg’s to give their new Eggo FiberPlus Waffles a […]

Ok, I have something to confess.  Yes, I know it’s not Tuesday, but bear with me.  I love chips.  There, I said it.  I like to dip them. I like them with sandwiches. I like them plain. I just like them, end of story. Given my love of chips, I was very excited when I […]

I’m going to be honest, folks. I get up in just enough time to get showered, dressed, and to work. Sitting down to breakfast is not an option. I need something that is healthy, quick, and simple. I was recently given a chance to try the two new varieties of Kellogg’s® Special K® bars. When […]

Pupus. Starters.  Whatever you call them…I just love appetizers. I’m one of those people who will happily go to a restaurant and make a meal out of appetizers only. The problem is, so many restaurants appetizers are a big, hot, fattening mess (Hello cheese sticks. And calamari. And nachos.) Same goes for appetizers at home. […]

*Updated! The lucky owner of the energize your morning kit is in the comments! Sweet or savory? I always go sweet, especially at breakfast time. Yes, I have a weakness for all things pastry and cake. Doughnuts, muffins, danish? Yum. But, unfortunately, most baked goods aren’t the healthiest way to start your day. And diet […]
