Have a Breakfast Quickie!  Here's a fast, easy and nutritious breakfast or snack.

From friend and contributor Bev Avery: "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt" Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens  PS from Bess: I've proved that point on occasion, haven't you?

We all know we should eat more greens - real greens, iceberg lettuce scarcely counts.  But many people think they are so..... GREEN!  Here's a quick and scrumptious way to sneak some of the best greens into everyone's diet - and don't knock it until you've tried Green Eggs & Bacon.

Chili Oven Fried Chicken is a healthy substitute for regular fried chicken; cornmeal gives a slight crunch to this baked version.  You can even put the chicken to marinate several hours ahead of time, and mix the coating, ready to fix and pop in the oven while you get your ducks in a row, so as to speak. 

Steaming is one of the healthiest ways to prepare food because it retains nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins while preserving color, texture and flavor. Tupperware's Smart Steamer blocks microwaves from cooking foods. Instead, microwaves are directed to the Water Tray, causing the water to boil and the steam to rise for perfectly steamed foods. The two-tiered system lets you steam one or two foods at once. Try Tangy Citrus Chicken with Steamed Vegetables using the SmartSteamer and see the video demonstration.

Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

You may be thinking you can keep your kids (or yourself) from eating sweets, like cookies, but mainly you're kidding yourself.  Sooner or later when the kids are out of sight they'll pig out on forbidden sweets or you'll give in to cravings.  Here's a cookie recipe that, while it has some sugar, is so chock full of other nutritious ingredients that it scores much higher on the snack scale.  It also helps with regularity.  Not for diabetics or course but can be gluten free.  Try the Ultimate Cookie
