Healthy Living

We've been doing really well with our diet. I cooked a big pot of beans for refried beans tonight. Beans are high in protein, high in fiber, high in folate and low in fat (especially the way I cook them - I don't add fat or meat). When mashed into refried beans they freeze well.

I've found that if I cook beans on a cold day, my whole house is nice and toasty warm. The added hot steam makes such a huge difference - you have the heat from the steam. Plus, adding moisture to air allows it to hold heat better.

Our grapefruit tree produces the most amazing grapefruit. This helps with the diet and the pocketbook - even though grapefruit are cheap here. It seems like you see citrus stands everywhere this time of year. Last year I experimented and found that you can freeze orange slices and they taste great later. They make a great treat for those hot summer days, or you can use them in smoothies.

We've been doing great with exercise too, but I woke up with a major crick in my neck this morning, so I can't hardly move my head today. I need to exercise, but I want to cry every time I move. I even took an aleve at work today and it did nothing.
