Corn Starch does more than add body to your sauce...

For more than thickening

When I was a kid I thought Corn Starch was magic. I thought My mom was pretty magical too when it came to cooking.

Back then, I thought all women were magically endowed when placed in front of a floured board.

It wasn't until I married with hubby and children to feed that I realized that I hadn't inherited that magic!

Another magical thing I noticed was Corn Starch. Mom seemed to use it for everything.

Does Salt Really Sabotage your Diet?

Salt does more than increase your Blood Pressure, It can make you heavier too. Not only does a low salt diet help you lose weight, it may save your life.

According to WebMd: "People with heart failure may improve their symptoms by reducing the amount of salt (sodium) in their diet. Sodium is a mineral found in many foods. Eating too much causes the body to retain too much water, worsening the fluid build-up associated with heart failure."
They also include that, "Following a low-salt diet helps control high blood pressure and swelling (edema), as well as decrease breathing difficulties for people who have heart failure."
So if you're thinking of "holding the salt" on that next fast-food meal, I'd say that might be a good idea!

Have you visited the Amazon Pantry? I Didn't know Shopping could be so easy!

I hate grocery shopping! I'm not quite sure what happened to me. When my children were young, it was a treat to buy groceries.

Nowadays, I stay way too busy to make runs to the grocery store. And when the big shopping trip happens, I do lots of moaning and groaning under my breath.

Most often hubby volunteers but-- not without a frown on his face.  

"An Apple a day keeps the doctor away" and much much more--

5 Things to Eat every Day for The Best GI Health

Try it FREE for 30 Days

Since I began drinking a green smoothie every morning for better "gut health," I've been doing a little more reading about the workings of the stomach and the digestive tract.

When I was younger, I didn't give digestion much thought unless I had a stomach ache from an extra helping of dessert. Every thing worked pretty well on it's own without my attention.

In my youth eating, digesting, or whatever else happens in the digestive tract, happened incognito. Now, in my golden years....not so much.
