So much for my resolution to blog more. Just not happening. Instead, I resolve to blog BETTER. (meaning: write something worth reading. Wouldn’t that be a good thing?) So here goes. Let’s start with what I learned this week.
There’s a little something for everyone here.
For those trying to lose weight:
(1) Eating breakfast for lunch or dinner is a great weight loss tool. (I’m not talking syrupy waffles here, people. But omelets or cereal and fruit) FYI – here’s a great oatmeal recipe you make in a slow cooker overnight.
(makes 9 servings)
2 – 2 1/2 cups steel cut oats (you cannot use regular oats for this)
3 cups water, about 1 cup lo fat milk
3/4 cup of dried cranberries (can chop them if you want)
ground cinnamon or cinnamon and sugar (about 1 1/2 tbl or to taste)
1/2 cup maple syrup (I used the lite kind)
Throw everything into a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. You can garnish it when it’s done with slivered almonds. This is actually a recipe from Weight Watchers. Each serving has a points plus value of 6 if that means anything to you.
For those who make things/sell things:
(2) Facebook is having a giveway for facebook ads. Details here:
If you have a shop on etsy or artfire (and a facebook page) you could get either $50 or $150 worth of free advertising. And they’re going to give away 10 prizes of $10,000 in free advertising too. (Chances of winning that one…ummmm…probably not so good.)
For those with pets:
(3) No matter how many dog toys you buy for a puppy,
they would still either eat your couch, chew on your tupperware or shred your toilet paper.
