Get ready for a yoga P.S.A. I will never understand why non-flexible people complain they can’t do yoga.(Mind you, they haven’t even tried!) Shouldn’t they do yoga to become more flexible? DOing helps us to improve, NOT doing doesn’t. Anyway, think of it this way – maybe yoga isn’t your thing, but whatever your thing is – hopefully it is making you more flexible, stronger, and healthier. And for that, you should be proud!

Keri’s Kitchen – Twice-Baked Potatoes
Lately I have been on a twice-baked potato kick – guess I’m trying to relive something from my childhood! Ha! Who knows? Anyway I decided to make them the same way my mom did – or at least the way I thought she did. I guess I could ask her, but we are way too busy on the phone talking about nothing! So here goes:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Meanwhile, scrub and pat dry potatoes. Pierce with fork.
- Cook potatoes for around 1 hour – or until cooked through – skin should be “crispy”.
- Let potatoes cool to touch and then slice off tops – set aside.
- Scoop out total inside of potatoes into a bowl. Smash till no chunks. Add butter and nonfat milk – can’t really say how much depends how big potatoes are and how many you are making but enough for them to be creamy and NOT watery. Start with less (@2 TBSP butter & @1/4 cup milk/potato), you can always add more. Continue to smash and blend together. Add salt and pepper per taste.
- Scoop mashed potatoes back into skins of potatoes till full and sprinkle paprika on top.
- Place on baking sheet back into oven and those tops you had set aside if you want some simple potato skins.
- Cook for @ another 15-20 minutes or until potato tops start to brown.
Starbucks Has 3 New Dairy-Free Coffee Drinks, Here’s What Dietitians Think – Prevention Magazine
What I want to know is when will people stop thinking that if a beverage is made with dairy-free milk it must be better for them. Almond milk, coconut milk or oat milk doesn’t necessarily equate into better-for-you! You need to look at the entire package – sugar anyone? Sometimes you can’t help but wonder why Starbucks didn’t ask for our (meaning dietitians) opinions first?
How To Choose The Best Low-Carb Yogurt, According To Nutritionists – Women’s Health Magazine
Pet peeve alert! Could they of said “Best Low-Sugar Yogurt” not “Best Low-Carb”. So tired of the bad carb rap. Why I am sharing this article though is because it helps you find the best yogurts without a lot of ADDED sugar. And that my friends, is what you want to keep LOW – ADDED SUGAR not necessarily carbs. And as a reminder, all yogurts have natural occurring sugars in them and it is called lactose.
