Negative calories because they burn more calories during digestion than they have in them. awesome.

why are they zero calorie?? Well the theory is that it takes more calories to digest them than there is in them! I like this idea!

A Special Sunday: A Mix of Mother’s Day Blogs

29 May

I just found this and its so full of rich and inspiring blogs but I don’t have the time to check them all out now so I had to reblog it for myself and anyone else that may be open to finding a few new blogs to follow. So far my favorites are Spilled Milk and Butterfly Mind. Who are you already following are planning to follow from this list?

The Blog

In some parts around the world, this Sunday is dedicated to the mothers out there. For Mother’s Day, we’ve rounded up sites on motherhood, parenting, and family. On, you’ll discover mothers on all paths: new moms, stay-at-home-moms, single moms, mothers who are full-time writers, and more. (Even mommy men, as you’ll see below.)

We especially want to highlight bloggers with unique perspectives and thoughtful commentary, as well as collaborative blogs with multiple contributors. So, we hope you enjoy this sampling of sites in honor of this special day.

Butterfly Mind

Creative nonfiction writer Andrea Badgley lives with her husband and two children in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia. In the past, she’s caught our eye with thoughtful posts on both family and the writing life: a piece on putting food on the table, and a post on revisiting her childhood diaries. Her blog is a delight: lovely musings on

Why did I eat that???

14 Nov


I know you’re wondering what it was? It looks disgusting after the fact it looked pretty bad during the process as well. We’ve all been there, the second we see or taste it we realize this food item is not right for us but we eat it anyways.

Going through this restrictive diet has been so ridiculous I decided to switch it up a bit. I was craving hot dogs but since I can’t have a bun or canned chili because of the wheat-free, egg free, dairy free diet I’m on it sounded quite boring. As I was going through the usual suspects I thought about a tasty treat from my childhood and decided to revisit it. Once when we didn’t have any hot dog buns my older cousin introduced me to a very strange concoction. He cut an opening down the middle of his hot dog wiener and filled it with grape jelly. I don’t know why I thought my adult taste buds would find this as delightful as I did back then but I went for it. Perhaps the wheat-free, egg-free, dairy-free diet was effecting my brain. I sat down with my Welch’s natural grape jelly and my Oscar Mayer nitrate free beef hot dogs expecting a tasteful explosion of salty and sweet, hot and cold.
I was extremely disappointed. Instead I tasted greasy, blubbery yuck! I wanted to spit it back out but I was hungry, so hungry I ate it. Will I do it again? Maybe, but the real question is will you try it? What strange food combinations do you enjoy? Is there something you loved to eat when you were younger that you wouldn’t dare try now?

Recipe 2 reality

25 Aug

Let’s start by saying I have no idea what I am doing in the kitchen but I try anyways. If you are like me you’ll understand. I’m a pretty picky eater but I also suffer from food boredom. If I have to go through all of the trouble to make myself or my family a meal (pretty much from scratch) it darn well better taste good. I have several go to recipe websites and books but nothings fool proof. Over the past few years I’ve made a few dishes that keep replaying week after week. They aren’t perfected but they are edible and usually delicious. However, as I said before I get bored so I’m constantly trying new things. Which means I often create something that’s barely edible or goes straight in the trash after one taste. Oh and besides my own culinary disabilities I’m dealing with shopping in a small town that only has two major stores for groceries. There are other little local stores I’ve tried to shop in but I found those experiences to be a bit scary, I think I need a local as a guide. I also have to please the critiques currently a crew of 5 plus a newborn that will be voicing his opinion soon enough. That’s the reality check out the recipes…
