Do you know a tasty, low-fat sauce that goes with steamed artichokes?

Question by Sara A: Do you know a tasty, low-fat sauce that goes with steamed artichokes?
*Sigh*. It’s time to diet. Hate it, hate it.

Anyway, one of my favorite foods is steamed artichoke which is (mercifully) very low in calories and high in nutrition. The only problem is that i like to dip said steamed artichoke in mayo. And oho! Fat free or low-fat mayo just won’t work.

Anyway, does anybody have a tasty and low-fat cold dipping sauce recipe, perhaps something involving plain yogurt? I’d really like to incorporate this into my regular diet.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dijonaise (low fat and delicious product) with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a couple drops of honey.

I’m not a big fan on yogurt – I use lowfat cottage cheese blended until smooth. Sounds wierd but no one can tell.

The beat goes on: First-time jobless claims rise again…Four-hundred and twenty-nine thousand people put in initial unemployment claims, the Labor Department said. That’s an increase of  9000 over last week’s revised figure of 420,000.

The number of Americans filing first-time claims for jobless benefits, already high, rose again last week.
Four-hundred and twenty-nine thousand people put in initial unemployment claims, the Labor Department said. That’s an increase of  9000 over last week’s revised figure of 420,000.

The four-week moving average, which is designed to smooth out volatility in the data, was unchanged from last week, at 426,250.

As we wait for June’s employment figures to be released next week, there’s little good news on the jobs front. Unemployment is at 9.1 percent, and employers created a paltry 54,000 jobs in May. The Federal Reserve yesterday lowered its projections for growth this year and next. It also raised its projections for unemployment.

Some people have advocated legalising dog eating so that the farming and slaughtering could be regulated. A little thought shows this to be a very wrong idea.

Jill Robinson of Animals Asia Foundation wrote:

" If approval was given to farm these dogs "humanely" the cruelty would simply
go underground – and would create a precedent for accepting dog consumption
in countries across Asia – including those where no anti-cruelty legislation
exists. Unlike other domestic animals raised for food, dogs are carnivores.
In intensive rearing situations they fight – sometimes to the death – over
water, food or even the right to lie down in cramped conditions. Dr. Les
Sims of the Hong Kong Government Agriculture Fisheries and Conservation
Department states that no country in the world has developed a humane way of
raising and slaughtering dogs and that, in their opinion, it cannot be done.
More and more people in Asia believe that dogs have earned their place in
society as companions and helpers – they want consumption of this species to
end. Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Taiwan have banned the practice – that
is the precedent to follow.

…..item 4)……REUTERS….Dog on the menu in Korea to beat the heat

By Tae-Yi Kim | Reuters – 14 hrs ago…..Thursday July 14, 2011

news.yahoo.com/dog-menu-korea-beat-heat-094612304.html;_y…

SEOUL (Reuters Life!) – Thursday was not a good day to be a dog in South Korea. That’s because it was one of the three hottest days according to the Korean lunar calendar — and dog soup is one way to beat the heat.

On "Chobok," people seeking to protect the body from overheating eat traditional healthy foods such as ginseng chicken soup, broiled eel, and "bo-shin-tang," literally "body preservation stew."

Dogs are bred to be eaten in South Korea, and advocates say bo-shin-tang, which consists of dog meat boiled in a mix of hot and strong spices and vegetables, is good for the health. It is considered a delicacy by some.

"The reason why I eat dog soup is because it boosts my energy, even when I’m most tired," said 56-year-old Shin Gwan-sup, sitting in a dog soup restaurant.

"Compared to other meats, it has more protein and less fat. I think it is healthy and clean, a more suitable meat for us."

The Korean practice of eating dog has drawn criticism from overseas for its cruelty, with French actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot among some of the most vocal critics.

But Korean dog meat connoisseurs remain undaunted, with long lines forming on Thursday outside dog specialty restaurants.

Beating the heat was painful for diners this year, though, with the price of the ginseng chicken soup, or sangyetang, jumping. Severe rain has also pushed up the price of vegetables used in the soups.

I need ideas for healthy food to pack when my daughter goes to away games?

Question by ♥ severelynormal: I need ideas for healthy food to pack when my daughter goes to away games?
She leaves at 7am and when there is an away game does not get back until 8pm-9:30pm. She says sandwiches, even pb&j, go bad. The schools she has visited so far do not offer anything substantial other than nachos-which her coach deems unhealthy and makes them do drills. We do the granola bars, fruit, trail mix but it is not much for such a long period of time. Any suggestions or packiing tricks would be greatly appreciated! I am putting it in this category hoping to hear from experienced parents!

Best answer:

Answer by sportyh4509
I am just like your daughter! I normally grab fruit or something, but I keep it in a safe place where I know it won’t get smashed. You could try to pack the pb&j sandwiches like you said, but instead of a plastic or brown paper bag try to put it in something more secure and will keep not only the freshness but the flavor as well. umm.. you could maybe just go with peanut butter.. or just get a small jar of peanut butter and give her the bread and a plastic knife and then she could just make it herself. Just an idea thrown out there. I can’t think of anything else right now because I normally have fruit. But my school also has nearby restraunts within walking distance and we normally have time to go up and grab something before we leave for an away game. Or another thing is.. but with the price of gas i doubt you would want to do this.. but you could go and drop off something she could eat.

Is there a way to resume healthy eating habits and not gain weight once the body goes into starvation mode?

Question by ♥: Is there a way to resume healthy eating habits and not gain weight once the body goes into starvation mode?
For about two weeks I was sick with the flu and completely lost all appetite. I would still eat, but very small quantities of food, because otherwise I would get nauseous. In the process I ended up losing about 5 pounds. Now that my flu is gone, my appetite has improved, but I don’t want to gain those 5 pounds back. I exercise and try to watch what I eat, but even so, I’ve already noticed that I’ve begun to gain the weight back. How do I stop this from happening?

Best answer:

Answer by oldtimekid
A healthy diet and exercise is the first big step. Your metabolism needs to get back up to par in order to keep burning as much as you did before you got sick, so start eating a healthy diet, then start exercising a day or two later. You might gain some of that weight back, but 5 pounds is seldom noticeable unless you are as thin as a stick 😉
Good luck!

What Goes Around Comes Around

What Goes Around Comes Around

I have a confession to make. I am notorious for meeting people, liking them, and then when they realize what I do and that I could help them, I end up giving away my services…for free. I have this uncontrollable urge to help people, especially when I know it’s something that I am good at and enjoy doing.

Now I don’t do this all the time, but occasionally I will, and I will tell you why. It comes back to me tenfold.

For example, we just adopted a Great Dane. In my search for information on this mini-horse breed, I came across a Yahoo! Group for local Great Dane owners. I joined, sent my welcome message introducing myself and Napoleon, and the owner of the group noticed my signature line and contacted me for possible help with my services. We were on the phone for at least two hours. I liked her.

So when we finally got around to talking business and she told me she needed a sales letter written to send out locally, I told her I would do it for free.

I didn’t think twice about it.

We have chatted a few times on the phone, and we have met at our Great Dane get-togethers, and I did her sales letter. It was pretty good if I do say so myself. But here is what happened that I was not expecting.

She’s telling people about me.

That’s right. I’ve gotten new clients by referral from her, and all I did was spend two hours on her sales letter. Not a bad trade, eh?

I didn’t do this letter for her with the expectation of something in return. I honestly didn’t. My boyfriend, my coach, and my colleagues love to get on me about giving my services away, and I can see where they are coming from. However, I’m a firm believer that what goes around comes around.

This is just one example. I also had a colleague that wanted her blog template to look just like her website. I was almost sure that I could do it, and before I knew it, she sent me the information and hired me to do it.

So I did it. It was a lot of trial and error, since I was dealing with a programming code that I was not an expert in writing. I worked with it until it was just right. When it came time to bill her, I simply dropped her a note and said, “It’s on me. I’m just tickled that I could actually do it.” And I was. I didn’t expect anything from her.

Yesterday, the FedEx man came, and I now have 12 brownies from Fairytale Brownies. (Well, I HAD 12…there are only 9 now!) But again, I wasn’t expecting anything. I was just pleasantly surprised when I got a package in the mail and it wasn’t my birthday or Christmas.

And I’m sure when the conversation comes up and people ask her how she got her blog to look like her website she’ll say, “Heather at Valley Virtual Assistants did that for me.” Even if she doesn’t, that’s okay with me. I felt good helping someone out, the brownies are delicious (and hidden where no one can find them), and I’m content with how I do business.

Let’s be honest. We’re not non-profit organizations, and many of us rely on our customers and clients to put food on the table, a roof over our heads, and clothes on our backs. We cannot afford to give the farm away, but we can give a few bales of hay away, and we can choose who should get them.
