Well I woke up this morning to a surprise dusting of snow and I have to say I didn't hear any of the weatherman calling for it yesterday so where did it come from. It is going to be very cold all week and there a couple of chances of snow during the week. Well the Green Bay Packers played just terrible yesterday losing to the Lions 7-3 and losing the QB to a concussion as well, I have to say this not a playoff team. The Redskins found another way to lose yesterday, there kickers missed 2 field goals from less than 30 yards and then the holder dropped the snap on th game tying extra point. Well I finally got my appetite back yesterday and had very good lunch at Outback, it was the fist good meal that I have had since Wednesday. I am still having some side pain from time to time but I am going to head to work this morning but I am just going to be on light duty for the next few days, no lifting period. Well I have to go get the snow off my car and head to work. MICKEY
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect food than beans. One cooked cupful can provide as much as 17 g fiber. They're also loaded with protein and dozens of key nutrients, including a few most women fall short on—calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Studies tie beans to a reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and breast and colon cancers.
The latest dietary guidelines recommend consuming at least 3 cups of beans a week—3 times the measly 1 cup we usually get. Keep your cupboards stocked with all kinds: black, white, kidney, fat-free refried, etc. Use them in salads, stuffed baked potatoes, and veggie chili or pureed for sandwich spreads.
