Food Friday – Healthy Choices

oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great choice when it comes to breakfast options. Any oatmeal is better than no breakfast at all, but is one oatmeal better than another? Maybe! Although instant oatmeal may seem more convenient, the old fashion oatmeal might be a better option.  The traditional oatmeal is free from harsh chemicals and preservatives that are found in the instant versions.  The lack of preservatives helps the body to process more slowly therefore allowing your body to use it as fuel rather than convert to sugar and eventual fat. A great alternative to instant is to pre-measure the traditional version in baggies. You can still heat it up in the microwave and add fresh fruits, nuts, milk or sugar after heating.

Do you like hockey games? If you are a Utah local and want to attend a hockey game this season, we have a thrifty tip for you.

After heading to Maverick for our coupons, we found out that they had tickets for just $10! The $10 vouchers were exchanged at the ticket window. We were surprised to get 3rd row with our vouchers!

Tip Tuesday – Quick Egg Peeling

eggs

Peeling the shell off hard boiled eggs is sometimes tedious. We’ve got a quick tip that will help.

  1. Tap the end of the hard boiled egg and remove the bottom shell.
  2. Tap the other end of the egg and remove the shell.
  3. Blow through one end of the egg.
  4. It will pop right out!

We recommend that you do this with eggs you plan on personally eating.  If you have several to do for a large group or party, you may want to do it the old fashion way.
