Three Martin Luther King Quotes To Discuss At Dinner – What do they mean to you now, in everyday life?

1- “All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.”
2- “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
3- “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

158 - sugar

Tips For Your Post-Holiday Sugar Detox – Here are perhaps the two most important rules to follow when trying to get back on track with healthy food habits.

1- More and more dietitians warn that substituting natural sweeteners does not work. This is because they tend to taste even sweeter than regular sugar, making you crave the sensation more, not less.

2- The best substitute is an activity. Pamper yourself. We consider a sweet treat a reward. Making a personal pampering activity into a reward instead is far more efficient, and loving.

158 - chips

Now This Is Engineered Food! – Did You Know?

Indeed, turns out we prefer a chip that crisply cracks at 4 pounds of pressure per square inch. The chip in question: Cheetos.
