french_toastDon’t Get Fat French toast
  • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg white
  • 3/4 C canned fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 slices Pepperidge Farm Raisin Cinnamon Swirl bread
  • 1 tsp confectioners’ sugar


In a wide dish, beat the egg and egg white with a fork until smooth. Stir in milk and vanilla.
Set a griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat until hot (about 2 minutes). Remove pan from heat and coat with cooking spray; turn heat to medium and return pan to burner.
Dip the bread into the egg mixture to saturate. Lift out, letting excess drip off before placing on griddle. Cook until browned and cooked through (1 to 2 minutes per side). Transfer to plates. Dust with sifted confectioner’s sugar.

20 Things that may keep you FAT

eat this not that1. It sounds crazy, but stop buying foods marketed as low-fat or fat-free. Typically, they save you only a few calories and, in doing so, they replace harmless fats with low-performing carbohydrates that digest quickly—causing a sugar rush and, immediately afterward, rebound hunger.

2.Not seeking nutrition advice

3. Sleeping too little or too much

4. Eating free Restaurant Foods

Breadsticks, biscuits, and chips and salsa may be complimentary at some restaurants, but that doesn’t mean you won’t pay for them. Every time you eat one of Olive Garden’s free breadsticks or Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits, you’re adding an additional 150 calories to your meal. Eat three over the course of dinner and that’s 450 calories .

5. Drinking Soda even Diet!!!

6. Skipping Meals

The problem is, skipping meals actually increases your odds of obesity, especially when it comes to breakfast.


7. Eating too quickly

It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it’s had enough.

8. Watching too much TV

9.Ordering the Combo Meal

10. Facing the buffett

11. Eating off larger plates

Keep your portions in check by choosing smaller serving dishes.


12. Putting serving dishes on the table

A study in the journal Obesity found that when food is served from the dinner table, people consume 35 percent more over the course of the meal. When an additional helping requires leaving the table, people hesitate to go back for more.

13.Choosing White Bread

14. Taking Big Bites

15. Not drinking enough water

16. Having overweight friends

17. Eating too late

A new study in the journal Obesity looked at the sleeping and eating habits of 52 people over seven days, and it found that those who ate after 8 p.m. took in the most daily calories and had the highest BMIs.


18. Not Using a Scale

Avoid being thrown off by natural fluctuations in body weight by stepping onto the scale at the same time every day.

19. Drinking fruity beverages

20. Eating When Emotional

If you feel the urge to eat in response to stress, try chewing a piece of gum, chugging a glass of water, or taking a walk around the block. Create an automatic response that doesn’t involve food and you’ll prevent yourself from overloading on calories.

if you dont stand for anythingMorning Inspiration….I decided to post the incident about Paula Deen since the last post stated that we need to do better in order to be better. After sitting back and reading this Paula Deen incident I am very offended that someone from another race would degrade someone else race back to their slavery days…If we don’t learn from this horrible situation and take a stand on how others are treating someone else even if it doesn’t have anything to do with you then we might as well as said it ourselves…..
The Paula Deen Incident; you should know all that’s being alleged before defending her

Written by: Daryl K. Washington Jun-29-2013

I’ve finally had the opportunity to review the complaint filed against Paula Deen. For one, many people have been making this incident about the “N” word only, but it’s much more than that. I personally find it to be offensive whenever someone from another race is accused of using the “N” word they are somehow given a pass because of the use of the “N” word by some in the black communities. Let me be the first to say that I find the use of the word by anyone to be wrong. However, when it’s used in a racist or insulting manner, it hurts more.

I think individuals who are trying to defend Paula Deen’s use of the “N’ word should probably familiarize themselves with all of the facts of the case against her. Just so you know, in case you didn’t know, the person who initiated the complaint against Paula Deen and her brother is not “Black.” She is a “white female” who was subjected to years of abuse and was finally fed up with her black employees being treated poorly, so stop thinking it was a black person complaining about Paula Deen’s use of the N word. Furthermore, Paula Deen indicated that she used the N word over 20 years ago. That is not what’s being alleged against her. She went as far as telling a guy he was as black as a blackboard. That lady is something else and I’m glad I never supported any of her ventures. I personally find it insulting that so many black people are coming to the defense of Paula Deen after reading what she and her family subjected their employees to. When I learned about the major companies dropping Paula Deen without being demanded to do so, I knew it was deep. The fact that any civil rights activist is supporting Paula Deen is insulting and is a slap in the face.

Here’s a summary of some of the things being alleged against Paula Deen, her brother Bubba Hiers and the Deen business entities:


Paula Deen, while planning her brother’s wedding in 2007, was asked what look the wedding should have. She replied, “I want a true southern plantation-style wedding.” When asked what type of uniforms the servers should wear, Paula stated, “well what I would really like is a bunch of little n*ggers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around;

Black staff had to use the back entrance to enter and leave restaurant;

Black staff could only use one bathroom;

Black staff couldn’t work the front of the restaurants;

Brother Bubba stated his wishes: “ I wish I could put all those n*ggers in the kitchen on a boat to Africa”;

Bubba asked a black driver and security guard “don’t you wish you could rub all the black off you and be like me? You just look dirty; I bet you wish you could.” The guy told Bubba he was fine as is;

Bubba on President Obama: they should send him to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, so he could n*gger-rig it;

He shook an employee (Black again) and said” F your civil rights…you work for me and my sister Paula Deen;

Paula’s son Jaime’s best friend managed the Lady & Sons restaurant. He threatened to fire all the ‘Monkeys’ in the kitchen. When Paula found out…she slapped him on the wrist and suggested that the employee visited Paula’s $13,000,000 mansion so he felt special and could be massaged.

I feel Paula Deen, her brother and anyone who treats people poorly should not be given a free pass. I wonder if Paula is truly sorry that she used the “N” word or that she was reported by someone who looks just like her. I appreciate the lady having the courage to report Paula Deen. It’s people like her and the videographer who leaked the 47% comments made by Mitt Romney who should be receiving the attention, not Paula Deen.
