What is the difference between budgeting and forecasting – Online Budgeting Tips

Online Budgeting Tips www.myonlinebudgetingsoftware.org In this video, Corey Vandenberg discusses the difference from budgeting and forecasting. When creating a budget, whether you use our online budgeting software, or a simple ledger. It is important to know what your income to expense ration is. A general rule of thumb is to stay within an 85% expense to income ratio. Of course the more you save, the better off you will be. Budgeting will help you account for every dollar made and spent. Building a budget is the act of combining your income and expenses so that you can decide how much money you are going to spend on one item, how much on another, and so on-before you actually spend the money. Creating a budget doesn’t mean that all of your problems are going to be solved, but it is an important step to determining your financial health and creating financial stability. It won’t be too difficult to create a budget, but it will be very difficult to stick with one. Creating and using an Online Budgeting Software is a priceless tool for everyone; it’s not just for those who need to closely monitor their cash flows from month to month because “cash is tight”. For people who earn enough income to cover their bills and have a regular monthly surplus, a budget can help maximize investment capital by allocating regular portions to investment means such as retirement accounts, college education plans and personal investment accounts. http For more budgeting tips, please visit www

Almost like a meat lasagna, this rolantini just substitutes the pasta for some mouth-watering eggplant. A great dish to make in advance and keep in your freezer for when you need a terrific healthy dinner quick & fast.
.

1 large eggplant
1 large onion, diced
Extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp. fresh crushed garlic
1tsp. cumin
1tsp. oregano
1tsp. basil
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 lb ground beef (I use lamb sometimes)
1/2 lb ground turkey
Kosher salt
Pinch of black pepper
.

For the Tomato Sauce:

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
½ cup diced onion
2 tsp. fresh crushed garlic
1 tsp. curry powder
2 cups canned, crushed tomatoes
¼ cup fresh chopped basil
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. sugar (or 1 packet Splenda)

Trim eggplant. Cut lengthwise into slices about ½ inch thick. Transfer to a colander and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt. Let stand for about 10-15 minutes.

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Wipe salt and exuded liquid off eggplant and rub on both sides with 4 tablespoons of the olive oil. Lay eggplants flat on baking sheet and bake until completely tender, turning once. Set aside.

In a large frying pan over med-high heat, sauté the onions in about 2-3 tbsp. of olive oil. When the onions begin to wilt, add the garlic, cumin, oregano, basil and thyme and mix well. Sauté for another few minutes until the onions are soft, and then add the ground beef and turkey to the onions. With the flat part of the wooden spoon, start mixing and breaking the meat into little chunks, while incorporating the onions and spices into mixture. Cover the pan for about 3 minutes and let cook. Uncover, and again with the wooden spoon break the meat chunks into small pieces; sauté for another minute and remove from flame and let cool.

While the meat is cooling, prepare the tomato sauce. In a small sauce pan on med-high heat, sauté the onions in the olive oil. Add the garlic, and curry to the onions and mix well. Sauté the onions for another 3-4 minutes or until they have softened and then add the crushed tomatoes. Bring the tomatoes to a simmer and then add the basil, bay leaf, salt and pepper and mix well; bring back to a low simmer.

Remove from flame and mix in the sugar.

Assemble the rollantini:

Take the cooled eggplant and lay flat on work space. Using a spoon, place a nice heaping dollop of meat mixture in the center of the eggplant. Fold or roll the eggplant over the meat mixture and then place seam side down onto a sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish. Repeat with remainder of the meat and eggplant.

When all the rollantinis have been assembled, pour the tomato sauce generously over top, place into hot oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot.

………………………………………
.

This Striped Bass dish is the perfect meal to ease you into the habit of preparing yourself good nutritious meals that do not have to be bland and boring. Yes it does take a little effort to put this meal together, but the key word here is LITTLE!

And what is a little effort for a BIG reward: eating something that is outrageously tasty, totally satisfying and is good for you. It doesn’t get better than that!
.

4 skinless filets of striped bass or other mild white fish like flounder
1 lemon
1 bunch flat leaf parsley
5 cloves minced garlic
4 tblsp olive oil
1/2 whole wheat baguette, or 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1 pkg frozen artichoke hearts or 1 can of artichoke hearts, sliced
1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted
1/2 container grape tomatoes

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Remove zest from the lemon with a microplane grater, and combine with parsley, garlic, 2 tblsp olive oil and 1 tsp salt in processor. Pulse and gradually add the bread until its coarse crumbs (if using crumbs, you can chop parsley and garlic and combine well with bread crumbs, zest, oil and salt)

Spread the bread crumbs in a 9×13 baking dish and arrange vegetables around the edges. Bake until bread crumbs are toasted and browned, and then scoop out crumbs to a bowl and add the fish to the baking dish. Top the fish with the bread crumbs, drizzle with some olive oil and bake until fish is cooked through and vegetables roasted, between 15-25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. Serve with lemon wedges.

This Mediterranean Tuna Pita was something I use to make all the time. For some reason I have not made it in ages, but it is really just the perfect quick and easy lunch. I love the addition of the sweet crunchy apples in my tuna salad. It is a really terrific twist to a delicious and tangy tuna sandwich.

Tip: I use this dressing for a myriad of dishes. I find it works particularly well as a marinade for tilapia, salmon or tuna steak.

If you are not interested in eating any type of bread – this tuna salad also works its magic on a simple bed of crispy iceberg lettuce!

2 whole wheat pitas, halved
1 can of dark tuna
1 green apple, peeled & diced
1 Asian red pear, diced
½ cup shredded carrots
½ avocado, diced (optional)
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

For Dressing:

1 heaping tbsp. mayonnaise (lite is fine)
1 tbsp. sweet teriyaki
1 tsp. spicy Dijon mustard
½ tsp. ginger powder
½ tsp. garlic powder

Warm up your pita breads in the microwave oven for 30 seconds and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, mash your tuna and then add all the apple, pear and carrots. Mix gently with a spoon. Stuff the whole wheat pitas with shredded lettuce and then add your tuna mixture and top off with sliced avocado.

For the dressing: In a small bowl, add all your dressing ingredients and mix well with a fork till well combined. Pour over your tuna in pita and enjoy!

Warm and delicious for those cold and wet winter days, these soups and stews are super easy to make.

—– POOR MAN’S BEEF STEW

I am not sure why I call this Poor Man’s Beef Stew. Maybe because it really doesn’t matter what type of combination of Beef, Chicken or Sausages you throw in the pot, it will still always come out tasty and delicious.

Ingredients:

1 large onion
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. of each of the following spices: cumin, ground mustard, ginger, garlic powder, sweet paprika, smoked paprika, turmeric, parsley
kosher salt & black pepper to taste
1-2 lb package of flanken (or any beef)
2 stalks celery, diced
2 large carrots. diced
5-6 sweet Italian sausage, cut into bite size pieces ( I use either Meal-mart or jack gourmet brand – in freezer section)
6 medium size red potatoes, cleaned, and cut into cubes with skin on
2 cup good red wine
1 cup beef or chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
3/4 cup Favorite BBQ Sauce ( I tested a great sauce that I had gotten free at this years kosherfest)

Directions:

In a large dutch oven on med-high sauté your onions in the olive oil for about 3-4 minutes. Add all the spices and mix well, and sauté for another minute or two.

Add the flanken and brown on both sides for about 2 minutes per side. After browning, remove from pot and set aside ( I use my lid as plate)

Then add the carrots and celery to the pot. Mix and sauté vegetables for about 2-3 minutes. Add the cut up sausages and potatoes sauté everything for another 3-4 minutes.

Deglaze your pot by adding the red wine, use your wooden spoon to scrape up all the good brown bits that are sticking to the bottom of the pan and mix everything well. Bring the wine to a slow simmer and add back the flanken pieces to the pot.

Add the frozen peas and then pour in the the broth and the BBQ sauce. Mix everything in well.

Cover pot and lover flame to medium low and cook on stove top for about 2 hours.

Serve in a bowl with some delicious bread on the side.

—– SPICY CHICKEN CORN CHOWDER

I am obsessed with corn chowder. No matter where I go, if they have it on the menu I order it or if I see a recipe for it, I have to try it. Am I the only one?

Ingredients:

2 cups chicken broth
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 package smoked turkey (about 5-6 slices)
4 pieces pastrami
1 onion, chopped
½ tsp. chili powder
¼ tsp. cilantro
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. curry powder (optional)
2 15 oz. cans creamed corn
1 can of white and yellow corn niblets
½ cup soy milk

Directions:

Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to pot with broth. Simmer, covered, over medium-low heat 10-15 minutes, flipping chicken half way through.

Transfer chicken to plate and reserve broth. Shred chicken into bite size pieces. Cook smoked turkey, pastrami and onion in soup pot with the spices for about 5 minutes. Add all corn, cook for 2 minutes. Add reserved chicken broth and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat until slightly thickened. Stir in soy milk and chicken and let it cook for another 5 minutes.

Tips: While I love homemade chicken stock, I almost never have time these days to make it fresh. Now you can find great organic and msg free chicken or vegetable stock/broth in your local groceries that will work great in this and any other recipe that call for it. The key to a good grocery chicken stock is too look for one that has a short ingredient list that includes vegetables like carrots, celery and onions.

Ingredients:

1 lb chicken wings or chicken thighs

1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
3 large cloves of garlic

Anything with fruit and veggies. If your kids are really picky and you are having a hard time getting them to eat veggies like squash and such, try shredding it and putting it in something that they like, like spaghetti or mac and cheese. Anything you make homemade should be healthy.

Straightforward facts on dietary fat and health
It’s actually an essential nutrient, and our obsession with dietary cholesterol is misguided, experts say

By David Feder Special to the Tribune

August 26, 2009

We’ve become a culture where a serving of fettuccine Alfredo is nicknamed " heart attack on a plate" and french fries are frequently mentioned with the prefix "artery-clogging."

Rarely does an article about dietary fat inform us that fat is an essential nutrient without which we would surely die. However, for most of us, fretting over dietary fat and cholesterol is unnecessary.

For generations, experts have prescribed a set of rules for everyone based on risk factors of illness in only one segment of the population.

"The results of cholesterol and heart disease research was not meant to be applied to healthy people or the world at large," said Dr. Donald McNamara, a cholesterol research scientist and director of Eggs for Health Consulting in Laurel, Md. He compares such an approach to "prescribing the same pair of glasses to everyone."

Few experts argue that for those with cholesterol levels outside the norm, or with high risk factors for cardiovascular disease, dietary change often can be a valid intervention. But when it comes to high-fat foods such as burgers, cheese, butter and cream being liberally shunned by those bent on lowering their cholesterol intake, it’s time to lard the conversation with a little straightforward science on dietary fat and health.

Your body knows how to handle dietary fat, and if you’re not overweight and have no other high-risk conditions, your risk of heart disease is probably low. That means even if you occasionally eat several slices of pizza with a Haagen-Dazs chaser, you needn’t punish yourself with guilt and worry. The stress will probably do more damage than the Super Bowl special you just ate. According to Mark Anthony, nutrition science instructor at St. Edward’s University, Austin, Texas, and author of "Gut Instinct: Diet’s Missing Link," analysis of the research into cholesterol and disease is bearing this out.

In 2006, scientists at the University of Surrey in Guildford, England, published a comprehensive analysis of multiple studies on dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol in the British Nutrition Foundation Nutrition Bulletin. Their conclusion was emphatic: "The idea that dietary cholesterol increases risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) by turning into blood cholesterol is compelling in much the same way that fish oil improves arthritis by lubricating our joints."

Specifically, the team noted, "the scientific evidence to support a role for dietary cholesterol, [or the cholesterol we eat, as opposed to serum cholesterol, which is the cholesterol in our bloodstream], in CHD is relatively insubstantial in comparison with the incontrovertible link between its circulating blood relative in LDL cholesterol and CHD."

McNamara concurs: "No study published over the last 20 years has reported a relationship between dietary cholesterol intake and heart disease risk in the general population." He also points to data from the famous "Seven Countries Study" that analyzed subjects with the same levels of cholesterol, across different cultures. Absolute rates of heart disease varied widely. Another eye-opening statistic cited by McNamara is that roughly half the incidents of heart disease occur in people with normal cholesterol.

The type of fat in your diet does matter to some degree. Trans fat, derived predominantly from highly processed oils, was shown to be more strongly associated with cardiovascular disease. It was ultimately subjected to strict labeling and voluntarily removed from thousands of foods and beverages.

However, many research studies have shown that natural fat in foods such as eggs and dairy products has no effect on the risk for cardiovascular disease. Some studies have shown a positive effect of dairy consumption on reduction of disease risk. Saturated fats from sources other than eggs and dairy, such as from meat, once were associated with increased disease risk. Later studies are proving the issue to be more complex than that. And studies of saturated fats from plants such as coconut and palm oil are revealing positive health benefits.

Most important, mono- and polyunsaturated fats from olive oil, nut oils and vegetable oils, and the omega oils found in fish, flax and nuts boast thousands of studies backing their benefit to health for everything from protection against cancer, heart disease, certain birth defects, depression, cognitive decline and more.

Authors of the Harvard School of Public Health OmniHeart Study comparing popular diets and food intake concluded that, "in the setting of a healthful diet, partial substitution of carbohydrate [with] monounsaturated fat can further lower blood pressure, improve lipid levels and reduce estimated cardiovascular risk."

Simply put, the connection between the amount of fat we eat and the fat clogging our arteries and stopping our hearts turns out to be far more complicated than a blanket prescription of " low-fat diets for everyone" can address.

It doesn’t negate the value of eating a balanced diet, with the majority of calories coming from fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods. But it does mean that, if we have been taking care of ourselves by maintaining a healthy weight and staying active, we don’t have to seek penance every time we butter our toast.
