Lose Weight Foods

Yes, there really are foods that can help you lose weight. You may want to start eating these food:

Walnuts – Not only can eating walnuts on a regular basis lower your cholesterol, they help you feel full. They contain proteins, healthy fats, and omega 3 fatty acids which contributes towards this.

Green Tea – Research has shows that green tea can increase your metabolism. If you drink it without milk or sugar, it does not contain any calories.

What to do if you have a grease fire

I actually got this video in an email. This is a topic that I really never thought about all that much. I’ve never had a grease fire, but I know the effects can be devastating. This video will take a little over 30 seconds of your time and could save you and your house if you ever had a grease fire.

The water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite. This is a powerful message—-watch the video and don’t forget what you see. Tell your whole family about this video. Or better yet, send this to them.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

1 can diced tomatoes undrained (I personally buy the ones with lots of spices added, but you don’t have to do that)
1 pkg Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat over to 400 degrees F. Pour tomatoes with their liquid into a bowl. Add stuffing mix, 1/2 cup hot water and the garlic; stir until stuffing mix is moistened. Set aside. Put chicken into 13×9 baking dish; sprinkle with basil and cheese, and top with the stuffing mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
