    Spinach wilted in hot bacon grease then used as a salad.

    Oh, yeah :-) And then use the rest of the bacon grease to make the dressing for the salad...yum :-) (OK, not exactly healthy, but it is so good!)

    It sounds wonderful, but I'm trying to cut back on bacon. OMG, I love it, but that's another thing I'm trying to cut back on.

    This week, I'm researching the most healthy meats. From what I've found, it's the hormones in beef that causes the problem, plus fat. ANyone here buy organic beef? I don't know that I like it well enough to pay the difference. Besides, can't you substitute turkey for beef in things like chili?

    Poultry is another issue. Which is best? You have free range, cage free, ......does it really matter?

    If I can afford it I buy local meat, eggs etc.
    I don't eat huge amounts of meat so I am not overly worried about hormones, I just like the idea of helping local farmers instead of some faceless corporation.

    You can substitute any ground meat in your chili or you can use no meat at all, just extra beans and veggies.



    On a side note I was sitting here wanting a peanut butter cup so I made a batch of buckeyes....and I wonder why I am fat.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    Re: General Food Talk

    I bought the Zumba dvd program. It comes with an eating plan, too. Not difficult to follow at all. The only issue I am having is that I really found the 2 women on the first 2 dvds very personable and fun to work with. I started the third dvd yesterday and I feel like it is being taught by a wannabe stripper who thinks she's making a porn dvd. The hair flinging and sex faces are so distracting. The male who is instructing is physically fit but something about him is just not appealing at all. I am supposed to do this dvd every other day and I don't know how I will be able to stick to it (which is my issue with everything I start). I had high hopes for this after doing the first 2 parts. Maybe I will just have to settle for burning less but going with dvds that I will actually do.

    I have a Zumba DVD, but I find I pause it( often). I need a real class to go to- I am awful when left alone
