Spend Less at the Grocery Store — Eat Before You Shop

groceries I tend to do my grocery shopping very spur of the moment. Being one of those people who is constantly engaging in the vicious cycle of using spare time to figure out when I will again have more spare time to go out and do things that need to get done, like grocery shopping for instance, I tend to run most of my errands very spur of the moment. I’ll finish working a little earlier than I had planned, look at the clock and then go running to my partner saying “Hey look! I’m done working and now we must go run errands because who knows when we will have this time again!” And off we go to the store. Because of this, we often make a very grave mistake before heading out to the grocery store. We don’t eat beforehand.

You can tell when someone goes to the grocery store while they’re starving; their shopping cart is loaded up with things they would love to be eating right that moment and if they’re hungry enough, that means pretty much everything. It has always simply been known that you don’t go to the grocery store hungry, but now there’s some scientific evidence to back that theory up.

Researchers at the University College London recently conducted a study where they put participants on different diets that influenced their metabolism. They then gave the participants options of playing various lotteries, some riskier than others. The researchers found that study participants were more likely to choose riskier options when they were hungry than when they weren’t. As soon as the researchers fed the participants, they began making more conscious and money-saving decisions.

Simply put, eat before you head out to the grocery store. Being hungry and trying to do pretty much anything doesn’t work as well as it would if you were operating on a full stomach; when you’re hungry you are irritable and when your stomach is full, you are a lot more level-headed. You could end up saving quite a bit at the grocery store, or when running any other errands you have, just by heading out of the house right after you eat breakfast or lunch.

What Does Lady Gaga Taste Like? “Taste of Gaga” Tea in Discussions

Lady Gaga tea Lady Gaga is a huge fan of tea. She is a big time tea drinker, having been seen countless times walking from her car to a building surrounded by her entourage with tea cup and saucer in hand and also sipping from a tea cup during interviews. With all of the publicity Lady Gaga has been giving tea, someone should probably put her face on it already. Well, that’s exactly what several tea companies have been thinking!

Lady Gaga has been pitched by a myriad of tea companies, but the company in the front running for acquiring Lady Gaga as a brand ambassador is Twinings. (Look, they’re already getting publicity just by being in discussions with Lady Gaga. It’s already paying off!)

Twinings was started in 1706 when they first started selling fine teas in England. They have grown over the past 300 years to selling more than 200 teas in more than 100 countries.

Twinings has made Lady Gaga a multi-million-pound offer to be the face of their specialist teas and they also have plans of launching a new tea with her face on it with a name like The Taste of Gaga. The Twinings tasters are coming up with a tea with an oriental flavor with the hope of marketing the tea to a younger generation, particularly in America, since Lady Gaga is said to be making drinking tea cool again.

This is actually a pretty cool idea and a good endorsement idea for Lady Gaga. I’m not sure about the name “The Taste of Gaga” just because it’s kind of, well, weird, but if they re-work the name a bit, it could work out very well for both Lady Gaga and Twinings, or whatever tea company that wins her over.

Woman Sues General Mills for Fruit Roll-Ups Being ‘Unhealthy’

Fruit Roll-Ups General Mills, the makers of Fruit Roll-Ups, Gushers, and other delicious fruit snack goodness, are being sued for “making misleading health claims.”

Fruit Roll-Ups, Foot by the Foot and Fruit Gushers are being marketed as being “naturally flavored, low fat, and a good source of Vitamin C.” The official court documents, which were filed Tuesday in Manhattan Federal Court by Brooklyn woman Payton McClure, state that the company’s claims are false and misleading to the consumers, including children, since the snacks are made with partially hydrogenated oil.

Partially hydrogenated oil does pose some health risks long-term. Incomplete hydrogenation, which is trans fat and found in many processed foods that are not-so good for us, has been implicated in circulatory diseases including heart disease.

The $5 million lawsuit claims that the oils contained in the snacks are “dangerous” and “unhealthy”, which is true. But is this a $5 million case that McClure can possibly win? I think that a company the size of General Mills will most likely settle out of court, but at the moment the company has stated that they have not yet been served with the lawsuit and declined any further comment. McClure could not be reached for comment and the law firm representing the plaintiff hasn’t returned calls asking for further comment.

In Season: How to Buy, Store, Freeze and Prep Berries


Berries are now in season; strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and all the other types of berries out there are finally ready to be picked and taken home. Berries have great nutritional content and contain beneficial vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. Berries are great to snack on alone, or you can use them as an ingredient in recipes, salads, desserts or breakfast rolls.

So now that you know why berries are so great for you–not to mention they taste delicious–here are some tips on how to buy berries, how to store berries or freeze them for later use and of course, how to prep them to use in recipes.

Buying Berries:

  • Visit a berry farm to pick them during the peak of the season.
  • In the store, look for berries that are plump, firm and colorful, turning berry cartons over to check for moldy or mushy berries before you buy.
  • Berries perish quickly; purchase them when you plan to use them.

Storing Berries:

  • Wait until you use the berries to wash them. Unwashed berries stay fresh longer.
  • Store berries loosely covered in the refrigerator for no more than two days.
  • If you can’t use the berries right away, freeze them or make a puree or sauce that will keep longer.

Freezing Berries to Use Later:

  • Wash and dry berries, removing stems and leaves.
  • Arrange berries in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze overnight.
  • Transfer frozen berries to an airtight freezer bag or container; freeze for up to a year.

Preparing Berries to Use in Recipes:

  • Wash berries with cold water in a colander; drain well.
  • Allow to air dry, or pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Remove stems and leaves with a hulling tool or paring knife.

Martha Stewart Summer Grilling Cookbook For the third day in a row, it is incredibly hot and humid outside. When we were still getting inches of snow in late April, I was certain summer would never grace us with its presence. But it’s better late than never and here we are, nearly June and finally, some weather that makes sense.

As the air conditioner came out of storage and was put in my partner’s office and while we took up secondary housing in the lukewarm shower, all I could think about was camping and steaks and cheeseburgers on the grill. In short, I need some awesome meaty goodness cooked outside on a grill and I need it now.

Because summer just doesn’t make sense without dinner cooked on the grill, SIRIUS Radio has a free download of Martha Stewart‘s entire Summer Grilling Cookbook. [PDF]

Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu–Add These Aphrodisiacs

Plan on making your valentine a romantic dinner tomorrow night? Head to your local grocery store and pick up some of these tried and true edible aphrodisiacs perfect for Valentine’s Day!



Oysters are the classic and cliche aphrodisiacs who get a lot of attention for their mouth feel, especially when swallowed raw and whole. Another reason why they are so synonymous with gettin’ it on is because of their resemblance to female genitalia. Oysters are very high in protein and rich in zinc and iron–nutrients that help in the transport of oxygen and stimulate the metabolism.



Chocolate isn’t known for its connection to Valentine’s Day for nothing, so the next time your honey brings you a chocolate-filled heart, know that chocolate is actually a flavorful source of quick energy and has been known to elevate people’s moods due to it containing theobromine and caffeine–two related alkaloid stimulants. Chocolate is also rich in phenylethylamine, a compound that has effects similar to amphetamine.



Avocados are sodium and cholesterol-free, they are nutritious, creamy and mild to taste. The curves of an avocado perfectly mimic the curve’s of a woman’s body and is filled with good fats and has a wonderful buttery texture.



Before we had the modern medicine in over-the-counter pain relievers like Midol and Pamprin, ginger was used to help relieve menstrual cramps and many people still use ginger root to soothe the stomach. Ginger acts as a stimulant and is known to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus and intestines.



Yes, this is very, very obvious–it is impossible to look at a banana without taking note of its obvious phallic shape. Bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins, which are two necessary components for sex-hormone production.



Artichokes are one of the oldest-known foods filled with antioxidants. Prickly to touch, if you can make it to the center, its delectable heart reveals itself and you can feast on its delicately meaty substance. Yes, another pretty obvious conclusion as to why this is an aphrodisiac.



Honey is sticky, sweet and golden. The look, taste and texture of honey makes it alluring and mysterious.

Pine Nuts:

pine nuts

Pine nuts are full of zinc, a key mineral in maintaining male potency. They have been used to stimulate the libido since Medieval Times. They contain good fats and have an extremely velvety texture.



Vanilla has been said to increase feelings of lust, being very seductive. Some studies have shown that vanilla can raise levels of catecholamines, or the adrenaline, in the blood.

Progresso Souper You Review and Giveaway [Closed]

At the start of every new year, most of the women I know and connect with regularly openly talk about how their New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and/or to eat healthier. These are some great resolutions, especially the eating healthy one because while losing weight is a perk for a great deal of women, I whole-heartedly believe that crash dieting and the diet industry as a whole is a multi-billion dollar business for a reason, so if you do truly want to lose weight, it should be for purely health reasons, which is why eating healthy and choosing foods that will nourish you instead of just fill you is really important.

Now that we are more than a month into the new year, (by the way, can you believe that? I know I can’t!) a lot of women have been reporting on their progress with their New Year’s resolutions and if they have been able to stick to what they had planned before January 1st. I have noticed that a lot of women are increasingly strong-willed this year in the commitments they have made to themselves, nearly everyone I’ve checked up on who I had read on their blogs had made a New Year’s resolution has been sticking to it pretty phenomenally. So, for those of you who made the resolution to eat healthier and who are still on the fast-track to healthy eating, I have something really great to share with you!

I am a big, big, big fan of soup. I have been not-so blessed in the teeth department, having been diagnosed with Periodontal Disease and rapid tooth decay a few years ago after my wisdom teeth had started to push their way in. Because I am a professional blogger and also a freelance writer and web designer and developer who works from home, I have a very modest monthly income. I can pretty much cover my expenses month-to-month and that’s about it. That, coupled with the fact that I also live with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and major depressive disorder, (which I have blogged about here before,) makes it impossible for me to hold a job outside of the home, it isn’t a possibility for me to go out and get a part time job to help pay dental bills. Needless to say, this causes me a great deal of excruciating physical pain where for days at a time, I am unable to open my mouth wide enough to get most foods in it. That is when soup saves my life and the sanity I would not have after getting insanely frustrated with how big bite-sized food is.

Progresso Souper You Progresso has always been a great source of delicious and nutritious soup and they have made it even healthier than before by offering an entire product line of light soups that are all 100 calories or less!

The variety of soups I received is absolutely insane; I was completely blown away by the amount of different flavors offered and there is definitely something for everyone’s specific tastes. My partner, who usually despises soup and will not eat it regardless of what you bribe him with, loved the Italian-Style Meatball with Penne and I cannot get enough of the Chicken and Dumpling. I love, love, love the Progresso soup mug and now refuse to eat my soup out of anything else. It has a great little thumb indentation at the top of the handle to make carrying it from the kitchen to my computer desk very comfortable.
