Nutrition affects not only the condition of our bodies, but also the well being of our minds. The foods we eat keep our bodies and minds working efficiently, provide us with energy and strengthen our immune systems. One of the first dietitians, William Banting, in the mid-19th century wrote , “among all maladies which concern the human race, I know none nor can I imagine anything worse than obesity”. According to Dutch medical specialists, “people who gain a significant amount of weight after the age of 35-40, shorten their lives by approximately seven years”.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes “Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty.

Peanut Butter Breakfasts You all know how much I love peanut butter and how often I include it in my breakfast. That's why I was excited to hear about the Peanut Butter for Breakfast campaign put on by the National Peanut Board in honor of National Peanut Month. I have always thought that peanut butter is a great breakfast option since it goes with almost anything and has a high nutritional content.

There are many ways to enjoy peanut butter for breakfast, and here are some of my favorites: Nix the protein powder and instead add peanut butter into your smoothie to add protein and other vitamins and minerals.

So it was that I noticed Maria at Scandi foodie had done a 21 day sugar free vegan challenge after doing my I Quit Sugar program a few months back so I invited her to share her 5 favourite recipes from the challenge.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. What? Yes! - SugarBlog - SugarDerby Um... ok. Why didn't I think of this?!?!?! Of course you can hollow out a strawberry and stuff it full of cheesecake. Of course you can!!! And just in time for Valentine's Day... perfect excuse to make them! Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach Do y’all remember the scene in Runaway Bride (that’s an Oscar contender if I’ve ever seen one…) where Julia Roberts realizes that she doesn’t know how she likes her eggs? You know, because she’s always turning herself into the girl that the guy she’s marrying wants to be with? Yeah. That’s not me.
