TRADER JOE’S

This year for Christmas we went to visit my family in New Jersey and my cousin brought me to an amazing grocery store called Trader Joe’s for a little snack tasting. This place is known for its organic foods that are hard to come by. I wanted to try everything, but I settled for the following:  Here is what I think of what I tried: Crackers & Cheese – The crackers were really good, I would give them a 8 out of 10 & they’re really healthy. They contain prebiotic fiber to help support the digestive track. As for the cheese, I give…

STAY FIT DURING THE HOLIDAYS

  The holiday season is amongst us! I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been to the gym in over a week. Between Christmas shopping, dinner parties & family gatherings, the gym simply became last on my priorities list. However, I decided that I still needed to do something to stay fit. Above are things I am trying to do on a regular basis at home to get some exercise when it’s crunch time.

PIEROGI

  I’m polish & it’s tradition to have pierogi for Christmas, so I need to get on the bandwagon and make some of these from scratch! They’re basically dumplings filled with your favorite stuffing: potato and cheese (featured in this recipe), meat, mushrooms, etc. My favorite is potato & cheese & that’s why I decided to share this recipe with you guys. The only ingredient I will not be using is the recommended processed cheese sauce. Also, Poles often use ricotta cheese instead of cheddar cheese, so I will most likely be substituting that as well. It’s delicious and ricotta cheese has tons of protein!…

WOMEN ARE GOOD INVESTORS – A MUST READ

  Women are good investors, sometimes better than men… We have all heard the saying that men are from Mars & Women are from Venus & quite frankly this saying is not far from the truth. Men & women are often stuck in gender stereotypes such as the woman being the caregiver and the man being the breadwinner. These stereotypes are becoming instinct and more women are achieving career and financial success. There are however still many characteristics that make a man a man and make a woman a woman. Men and women have different approaches when it comes to investing. Some…
