  • Re: Unhealthy Food Makeovers

     First of all Binge, your preachy tone gives the impression that you assume I am clueless about the needy or homeless.  For the past 5-6 years I have been in the front lines working with these homeless and needy in my community.  We participate actively with the pantry in our community.  Thankfully, we have a wonderful director ...

  • Re: Unhealthy Food Makeovers

     I did not misunderstand a thing.  I do believe it is quite foolish to encourage something I believe to be uneducated choices.  Would I give a suicidal person a loaded gun?  No!  Why encourage poor choices that can result in the same ending?  If they are "living off" of this stuff, it is not because of ...

     We get 4-6 meals (6 people) out of a bag.  It doubles/triples like beans so don't overdo it.

  • Re: Budget Blues: Dealing and Coping?

     Get busy.  Volunteer.  That old phrase says something like "idle hands are a devil's workshop" is so true.  I know it is directed at teens but it is also still very true for those past the teen years -- especially the retired age too.

  • Re: TVP

     It is a soy product like someone else mentioned.  I don't see it in many regular grocery stores.  It is in the vegan/vegetarian meat subs found in the freezer section.  I keep some in the pantry.  I buy Bob's or  Harmony House.  The kids love it!  I will make lentil and barly soup or pintos or ...

  • Re: Make Ahead Breakfast

     Another vote for the non traditional "breakfast" foods.  You hear all the time about people having "breakfast" for supper.  Eat "supper" for breakfast!  I'm much happier with a nice meal for b'fast and a bowl of cereal for supper.

  • Re: Saying No to Cosmetics?

     Tomboy turned girly girl here.  I use lots of makeup.  I'm on stage a lot and you have to have good makeup under those strong lights or you look sick.  My biggest expense is foundation but when you consider that I don't have to purchase sunscreen for my face, it is pretty much a wash $$ wise.  Foundation works ...

  • Re: Facial Cleaning Cloths

    [quote user="bonzaibb12"]  washing or steaming with hot water on a daily basis will actually cause the skin to produce more oil. Basically the more you strip youre face of all the oil the more it must produce. [/quote]  That is true.  Just like many people are using "no poo" instead of shampoo on their hair ...
