Its KEY

PERUSE on FOOD

Who doesn’t like to eat? I DO! But I must admit I’m more of a snacker than a 4-course meal connoiseuer. Though at my tender young age, I am trying to correct my bad dietetic ways. So instead of hitting the donut shop or IHOP, I’ve been making protein smoothies every morning for breakfast, for about 6 weeks now.

My skin looks GREAT! I accredit it to the ingredients of my morning smoothies: Chocolate Protein, Frozen BlueBerries, Rasberries, pineapple, vanilla yogurt, [natural raw] wheat germ, flaxseeds, a few leaves of fresh spinach and soy milk (vanilla). It’s quite tasty. Sweet in fact. Which is great for me, since sweets are my thing.

While staying healthy and in shape is a quest I’m working hard to conquer, my kid has decided she wants to open up her own cupcakery. She’s always loved to bake but in the face of CUPCAKE WARS – she’s ready to go at it full throttle. And how did I respond to her future dreams? I said, “GO FOR IT. You’ve got great baking skills for a teenager, (she makes her cookies, cupcakes, and icings from scratch). She has officially started her journey and I’m a trusty team member (like on Cupcake Wars).

Check out the current venture of my mini-me:

The Cupcake Chique

She’s so on-fire about building her business for the long run and even legacy purposes. She does a lot of research and has found some pretty cool FOOD SITES that she’s drawing from. Wether it’s in their style, their artistic baking skills or their enticing web presence — she has found inspiration and is using it as fuel to drive her to her goal. I applaud her and the following sites for being so nourishing, sweet and a reminder that AMERICA is still the place where DREAMS can come true:

I’m just a mom. I do what I can
to help out my kid and my fellow man.

So I hit the wire in search of a show
of those who bake – so I could website promote.

My kids website was built 3 weeks back.
I couldn’t let her enter business without having that.

I admit: I’m high on sweets not too much for the the sour.
I’m also fond of technology: Ultrabook & Jack Bauer.

I’m just a mom. I do what I can
to help my neighbor – be they woman or man.

So I hit the wire to see what I could see.
I’m Qui
And for entrepreneurism – I’ll always be sweet.

The benefits of LUNCH

Today I decided to cook lunch, rather than do take out. Besides I’m on a tight budget and all that I had in the freezer was ground beef, turkey burger patties, frozen fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangos, pineapple, peaches) and chicken. I went with the chicken, thawed out a few strawberries, pulled fresh spinach from the fridge that I bought last night and mixed up a balsamic vinegarett and tah-dahhh! Lunch is served and the fam is looking at me like I’m a winner ...click here for the recipe – it’s to live for.

ASPARTAME

 

Decrease the size of your appetite for ASPARTAME. You must. It’s killing you. It’s killing us. Do your own research and save yourself. Be mindful to refrain from chewing MENTOS (or any other sugar free) gum, drinking a diet soda or enjoying a sugar free cookie while engaging in your research. The fore mentioned products are filled with Aspartame and working towards degenerating your health.

I know it’s such strong news and seems to come out of left field, but it’s not. What is in left field is the publics awareness towards the sugar free killer that was FDA approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated soda in 1983. There were 5 deaths attributed to Aspartame prior to 1987 and since then fatality figures have not been made public. Likely because …click here to learn more
