Heathly eatting deals at Wal-mart

Typically, I don't shop their for groceries. The local supermarket branches have been having much better prices plus free carry out with tip. Wal-mart has no carry out but their prices have recently dropped.

Here's the deals that I found.
pink lady apples a bag for $3.00
Lemons $0.25
bell peppers $0.68
bananas $0.44
10 lb bag of potatoes $2.00

Great value brand frozen vegetables if you don't fresh
Brocoli bag $0.98
Carrots n Peas $0.98

Non-whole wheat $0.88 - I prefer whole wheat but my family likes to mix it both.

Small loaves of bread white and wheat $0.88

Oscar meyer meat in round tubs $2.50 a lb. Not bad when the wal-mart brand is $3.00

Oatmeal Fruit cookies by Susan Powter

2 meduim sized bananas
2 egg whites
1 cup pitted and chopped dates (replaced with sunflower kernels)
11/2 rolled oats
1/2 cup raisans (replaced with cranberries)

Preheat Oven 350 degrees

Mash Banans leaving some chunks. Add egg whites and dates, and mix to make sure dates are well coated and seperated.

Mix in rolled oats and raisans. Set aside for 10 minutes. Wipe a cookie sheet with a little oil. Place teaspoonful of dough on cookie sheet, and flatten with the back of the spoon.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Cool and remove from pan. Store well covered in refrigator or freezer.

She says this is 88% carbohydrate, 6% fat, 6% protein..

I just love bananas.

Here is my challenge to you..make it your own by putting in the dried fruit or fresh fruit instead of the raisans and dates. Post your alternation here in this post..I will post all your alternations later.

Okay, I know there is a bunch stuff all over the internet but some of her recipes kick tale. She has some excellent points made in her books and backed up by professionals.

Sunday Quotes

Okay, Friday I got complimented on my skin. I don't have the perfect skin. I just know how to hide its imperfections and scars well. I wish people would not look at the outside to determine perfection rather inside just like the saying, "don't judge a book by its cover". The best beauty comes from the heart.

Menu for yesterday:

cheese toast

1 cup of peanuts

soup-enchilda and baked potatoe and house salad with strawberry lemonade from chilis

crackers and 6 oz of coca cola due to an upset stomach

yogart and peanuts for dinner

Basil- an herb we often don't know much about

This is from Southern Living May 2010 it teachs you how to grow the basil. They suggest you can use it to keep flies away. I thought it was interesting because they mention there are six kinds of basil you can grow.

This article is from Health Magazine May 2010 on diy remedies for things. The only thing I can say, is I normally make a tea broth with basil and drink it. I don't just smell it. I add 1 tablespoon or 2 teaspoons of sugar to drink it though.

This article was found in the Lowe's creative ideas for home and garden magazine they send out every two months.
I hope this helps you learn more about basil oops, basil is also known for its spiritual benefits as well. They are love, physic development, and protection.
This is something that is important to our diet.

Its getting very difficult to stay motivated to stay in shape. While, I know its important the time it takes to actually do it, sometimes is more trouble than its worth. I just pray that the more I move the more I want to move. I know it will work if I just stay the course.
