I found this fascinating quote today:



Home organization is a step-by-step process. It will take more than a day or even a week to get everything to a manageable level, but once you do staying organized is an easier task. If you have a family, enlist their help. They can pitch in and learn a thing or two about controlling clutter in their life.Mommyn Tyme, A New You....Make some changes Now- Learn to Live your life!, Sep 2009

Some more tips on weight loss I thought you might enjoy! Unfortunately, with all the quick and easy products out there, fast food, and "snack packs" we have chosen convenience over healthy food choices for our kids. This is a national phenomenon, and seems to have snuck up on the American population. I have gathered a few sites, choices, and information for Mom! As a student Mastering in Child and Adolescent Development, I really want to stress how critical it is to not ridicule, put down, or use any type of demeening language when discussing these issues with your kids. Children's self esteem is very fragile and can impact how they remember situations, the feelings they attach to certain scenarios, and overall mental health. Please be patient and supportive with your child if they are over weight, make it a family project- do not single your child out for "diet foods", and if the child has siblings ensure there is not ridicule or torment from them towards the overweight child.

Crafting with the Kids!

Crafting = Quality Family Time

Some parents are skilled crafters. Others are doing well to cut paper in a reasonably straight line. No matter which group you fall into, crafting with your kids can be beneficial for all involved.

Few things bring families together like crafting. Here are some of the good things that come out of crafting with your kids.

* Crafting builds creativity. Developing minds need a creative outlet, and crafting provides the opportunity for kids to use their imaginations. It helps them learn to solve problems, and it could lay the groundwork for a lifetime of interest in art. For parents, getting creative can help reduce stress and promote using the brain in ways that we don't have a reason to use it every day.

* Crafting teaches kids to follow directions. This seems like a very basic skill, but we all know adults who can't seem to follow directions. When kids craft, they learn the consequences of not following directions when their projects do not turn out as expected. This instils in them the importance of doing things the right way the first time.

* For young children, crafting is fabulous for learning basic skills. Almost any type of craft promotes hand-eye coordination. Kids can also learn to use scissors, measure and do lots of other things they will eventually do in everyday life.

* Parents and children have a chance to talk. In our busy lives, it seems that we know less about our kids than previous generations of parents did. Passive activities such as watching TV do little to encourage conversation. But when you're crafting together, talking comes naturally. You can seize the opportunity to discuss such things as your child's interests, his concerns, and how he's doing in school.

* Crafting is a great way to wind down. It's wonderful for kids to be active, but there are times when they need to calm down. If you find your child getting agitated or exhibiting an overabundance of energy near bedtime, try bringing out the craft supplies. Crafting engages kids' minds, giving them something to focus on and a good reason to sit still for a while.

* Creating things is a confidence booster. Parents who craft regularly know the feeling of accomplishment when a project is complete. Multiply this feeling by ten, and you have a pretty good idea of how your child feels when he makes something. For kids, crafting can help build positive self-esteem.

* Working on a project together is a great way to teach your kids teamwork. This will help them develop skills needed to resolve disputes peacefully and effectively. It will also help them discover their strengths and teach them that doing their best will make the entire project turn out better.

* Crafting creates treasured family memories. The finished product will serve as a reminder of the fun you had making it together.

Crafting as a family provides opportunities for us to interact with our children. It is also a valuable learning experience for them. Don't worry if you aren't the world's greatest crafter. Simply being willing to try anyway is a lesson to your kids in itself.

Get your family eating together, and eating healthy! Even on a tight budget!

Ok, Mom's out there... Here is a fantastic idea (why didn't someone come up with this sooner?)-

How busy is your evening, trying to figure out dinner and find things your family will actually eat? We've all seen the hamburger helper commercials, but is that really good for everyone? Check out the calories, fat, and sodium sometime on the box! You will be amamzed! But, I have found a great site that offers weekly menus, the grocery list all ready made for you, and tips and tricks to make it fun and easy. No kidding! This really is a wonderful idea! Check out the links below- you will be amazed. There are some free weekly planners, free grocery lists, and a few really great articles on how to get your kids to eat! (My 4 year old has been on a diet of hot dogs, peanut butter, crackers, and cheese for at least 3 months, now. I literally can not get him to eat anything else! I want to pull my hair out!)

So check out some of the following, then come back and share with our other readers... Did these work for you? How much of a time investment does this involve? Is it expensive. By following a specific grocery list and having your meals planned (healthy and great tasting meals, by the way) you should save at the store, cut down on snacking mid day, lose weight, and everyone should feel better- meaning you can feel better about what your family is eating! Just give it a click! What do you think?

Free Online Recipes



By: Christine Steendahl

Locating Free Recipes is as Easy as Logging Onto the Internet



One of many reasons why people love the internet is due to the remarkably quick and painless way you can locate information. Within seconds, you can find a library of knowledge relating to almost any topic imaginable. While many of us don’t utilize the internet for in-depth research, one way most of us can enjoy the convenience and power of the internet is by locating free online recipes.



Barely 15 years ago it seemed impossible that in a few short years, millions upon millions of recipes covering almost every dish would be readily available at their fingertips. Since the future is here, here are the many ways to cash in on free online recipes.



Obviously the free online recipes are extremely practical because you access a recipe in a matter of seconds. While a lot use a search engine like Google, many people often have their favorite recipe websites that offer vast amounts of recipes. Just input a key word or keyword phrase like “chili” or “chicken soup” and you will usually find a few to hundreds of useful recipes.



In addition to being easy to access, a lot of recipe websites are full of people that enjoy cooking, have their own favorite recipes and enjoy adding recipes to the database for others to use. These community recipe websites are a great way to share knowledge. In addition, a lot of recipe websites offer the ability to add comments. So whether you love a recipe or not, you can simply share your thoughts with others. This is a great way to try out a recipe (especially if many people liked it) or avoid it the recipe if it received bad reviews.



In addition to being able to view recipes on your computer screen, many cooks take it one step further- they print out their favorite recipes. It is incredibly easy to print out recipes and many free online recipe sites offer the option of special recipe formatted files which make it a snap to print out your favorite recipes. This way you no longer have to worry about ruining the recipe card while you cook or losing it. If you spill liquid on it, you can easily print it out again.



In addition to all these advantages, a lot of free online recipe sites have taken it one step further in providing quality information on how to cook specific meals. Many free online recipe sites now provide images and some even include videos describing step by step how to create a moderate to difficult dish.



Free online recipe web sites are perhaps the quickest way to locate new recipes, read reviews, and chat about the newest or best techniques on cooking and sharing with millions your prized or time honored family recipe. Free online recipe websites are truly the ultimate home recipe box.

Holiday Meals- Can we still eat healthy? Can we still stick to our diet?

FreeAffiliateArticles.com | Tips For Healthy Eating During The Holiday Season

Tips For Healthy Eating During The Holiday Season



By: Susanne Myers

by Susanne Myers



The time from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day has to be the hardest few weeks to stick to a healthy eating lifestyle or any diet for that matter. We are constantly tempted by sweets, treats and just way to much food in general. I would like to share a few tips with you that have helped me in the past to stay on track between now and the end of the year.



1) Make sure you eat before you go to any holiday gathering. You know you will be tempted by all sorts of unhealthy but yummy foods. Make sure you don’t go overboard by eating something that is good for you before you go. Try to make sure you are not hungry when you arrive, or you will be much more tempted to overeat as well.



2) Drink some water before you go and alternate higher calorie drinks like alcoholic beverages, eggnog or hot chocolate with water while you are at the holiday party. Drinks can have a lot of hidden calories in them, so watch out. Diet sodas are another good option.



3) Fill your plate with some “good “ foods first. Pick some raw vegetables, but go easy on the dip. Turkey breast, and lean ham or pork roast are other good choices. Don’t forget a nice plate of salad with a low fat dressing and some fresh fruit for dessert.



4) Don’t cut your favorite holiday treats completely out. If you don’t allow yourself the occasional small indulgence, you will be much more likely to break down and binge on all those cookies and treats. The key is to enjoy small portions or bites of your favorite foods. If you have a soft side for chocolate chip cookies then go ahead and indulge, but limit yourself to one a day or every few days. Of course the same applies if you prefer cheesecake or gingerbread men. For some lower calorie versions of some of your holiday favorites, visit www.healthymenumailer.com/blog.



Eat several small meals a day. This old tip holds especially true during the holiday season. We tend to skip meals and indulge in one large holiday dinner with the entire family. Don’t starve yourself all day. Get some snacks in and most importantly start your day with a good, healthy breakfast. You will be able to enjoy your holiday more by stabilizing your blood sugar. You don't want to spend the day being grumpy from not eating for hours, or be the first ready for a nap after overeating.



5) Use the busy shopping season and burn some extra calories. If you are heading to the mall, park a little further away, or take your time and do a round of window shopping all through the mall before you buy. Every few extra steps that you take count. Just don’t reward yourself afterwards with food. For extra motivation to get more walking in, consider wearing a pedometer. See http://www.walkingofftheweight.com for more information on walking and using a pedometer.



6) Take some time to relax. The holidays can be a very stressful season if we let them. Many of us (including myself) tend to overeat or medicate ourselves with food when we are stressed. Work in some extra time just for you. Sit in front of the fire with a good book or your favorite magazine, go get your nails done, take a bath or go for a walk. Do whatever works for you to calm you down and help you de-stress.



Above all, enjoy the holidays and remember they are not only about food, but more importantly about family spending quality time together. Treat yourself to some new holiday candles, listen to your favorite Christmas tunes, or go for a drive through a lit up neighborhood this year. Have fun during this special time of the year and enjoy that occasional cookie.



Happy Holidays!

Everyone was encouraged to subscribe to the same nutritional guidelines. Everyone was encouraged to merely look at the pyramid and find out how many servings were needed each day.



Most would agree that it is a great thing that obsolete food pyramid has almost all but been forgotten! It may have taken a while, but the notion that not all people want the same food intake finally caught on. Nor are children expected to follow the same nutritional guidelines as the adults.



If you're hoping we'll show you the "kid's guidelines" there simply isn't a set guideline. The quantity of food from each food group that each person needs to eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle is dependent on their age, sex and physical activity level. One size doesn’t fit all. You can go to mypyramid.gov to type in some search criteria to get an idea of how much from each food category to eat every day.



Remember balance is the name of the game. Make sure your little ones are consuming fruits and vegetables, dairy, meats and beans and grains every day. Then round it off with water, fresh air and exercise. To help you get started, below you will find a couple of healthful meals for little ones.



This turkey avocado sandwich wrap uses kid-approved ingredients for a nutritious lunch or treat.



INGREDIENTS:
• Whole wheat tortillas
• 1 avocado mashed
• Sliced deli turkey
• Shredded carrots
• Shredded lettuce
• Shredded Monterey jack cheese



PREPARATION:
Prepare wraps in the following order: Spread mashed avocado on tortilla; Sprinkle shredded carrots and lettuce on avocado; Lay on slices of deli turkey; Sprinkle with shredded cheese.



In addition, you won't get any scrunched noses if you tell the little ones you're making chicken nuggets for supper. This kid favorite is tasty in the low-fat, oven-baked version. For quick clean-up and extra crispiness, lay a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet; and, then place a wire rack on top of the foil.



INGREDIENTS:
• skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut in 1-2 inch sections
• non-fat or low-fat buttermilk
• flour for dredging
• finely chopped corn flakes for dredging
• salt and pepper to taste



PREPARATION:
Preheat oven to 375. Prepare three large bowls for dredging chicken - 1 with flour seasoned with salt and pepper, 1 with buttermilk, and 1 with crushed corn flakes. Prepare baking pan by laying a sheet of foil over a cookie sheet; and then place a wire rack on top of the foil. Season chicken with salt and cut into 1-2 inch pieces.



Dredge chicken pieces in flour. Shake off extra flour and coat with buttermilk. Next, liberally coat chicken with corn flakes, and place on rack of your baking pan. Bake nuggets for 15 minutes. These keep well for the next day's lunch box so make plenty!



The next time you reach into the pantry or freezer to grab something quick to prepare for dinner, take a good analytical look at the ingredients. The idea is not to serve food that is "not too bad" but rather food that is healthful. Remember that not all of your little ones may require the same servings of food.
