Prioritizing Planner 2018 (Two Video Demonstrations!)

 

The Prioritizing Planner for 2018 is here–and it is way more than a calendar or even a planner. It’s colorful and lovely. It helps even the “least organized” finally get organized and reach their goals. Tired of the old school planners that have every hour laid out for you to fill in (but without the understanding of what to put in those “hours” except for appointments and kids’ activities?)? Do you wish you didn’t have to take an average planner and tweak every page in order for it to be usable for your productivity habits and activities? Moreover, do you wish you had a planner that TEACHES you how to prioritize and be productive simply through using it? If so, the Prioritizing Planner might be just what you are looking for!

BEST Binder Method for Planners, Calendars, School Plans, and More!

 

Three-ring binders. Stapled. Binder clips. Coil binding. Report covers with sliders. Paper clips. Pre-made calendars with perfect binding. So many choices for combining those important papers, calendars, and more. I am a veteran homeschooler of thirty-two years and author of over 100 curriculum books, downloadable products, and other books totaling over 50,000 pages. So I have bound, stapled, clipped, combined, and hooked papers every way imaginable through the years. About ten years ago I happened upon a method that I have used widely for school lesson plans, scope and sequence charts for my books, calendars and planner, project task lists, and more. It combines the ease of a three-ring binder (minus pinching your fingers) with the re-ordering capabilities of loose papers. (What?) It is hard to describe, but I hope you will take a few minutes to watch the video I have created below. It demonstrates how wonderfully easy the circa discs and punch are to use. I know you’ll love it–and want to use them for your new year calendar and planning needs! 🙂

6 Low Carb Potato Substitute Experiments (With Pinnable Chart!)

 

One of my more intense-yet-least-productive recipe testing days has to be the day I compared the taste and texture of radishes, parsnips, and turnips. It took forever. Some things really didn’t taste that great. I couldn’t get my kids to eat most of the tested food. And I didn’t have a bar, cookie, cupcake, or candy to show for my efforts! However, I did gather some great data and narrow down my “potato substitute” options pretty well. I ended up with three potato substitutes, two of which are very low carb. And I discovered which ones mash the best—and which one really doesn’t taste like mashed potatoes!

Crock Pot Sausage, “Potatoes,” and Beans (With Family Friendly and Low Carb Options!)

 

Easy peasy crock pot meal today!!! With low carb and family-friendly options! I have this thing about crock pot meals (besides loving how easy they are!). I first look at every crock pot recipe and see how much “precooking” I will need to do. For example, I don’t mind tossing some potatoes (or turnips!) and carrots in the micro or Instant Pot to precook them before adding to the crock pot, but when a meat needs precooked (like ground beef for chili or pasta casseroles), I think “there has to be an easier way than all that precooking before I ever assemble the actual dish!” I think this goes back to the days of precooking 20 pounds of ground beef for freezer entrees when we still had all seven kids at home. (That much precooking will do it to you!)

Oven Roasted OR Air Fried Parmesan Green Beans

 

It’s only been a little over a month since I got my amazing, large, wonderful air fry! And I love almost everything I have made it in so far (recipes are in the works!). And I love these Parmesan Green Beans in it if I only want to make a small amount for two.

7 Tips to Convert Low Carb to Low Fat and Vice Versa

 

A reader recently asked me how she could convert low carb recipes into low fat ones and low fat recipes into low carb ones. She had gotten advice from her doctor to lower some of her lab numbers by eating more low fat foods. While I did once lose eighty pounds eating low fat, I am not a medical professional and do not have background in nutrition to the extent of knowing that the cholesterol in this food causes this or this saturated fat causes that. But I have been on enough diets in my nearly forty years of adulthood to know a few tricks for low fat and low carb! 😊 So here are some tips for her—or others who want to lower carbs in their low fat recipes or lower fat in their low carb recipes.

3 Surefire Ways to Lose Weight (Video & Chart Included!)

 

Picture this scenario. You’re a life-long dieter. You have done it all throughout your twenty to forty years of adulthood. Depending on when you began your life-long journey, you have done low fat (and almost fat free) with chicken breast, cottage cheese, egg whites, dry toast, saltines, pineapple, and frozen yogurt (while exercising with Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons—I’m really dating myself here!). You’ve done the calorie counting and/or points. As a matter of fact, you’ve done so many versions of the points that you can tell which things were free and which things *really* cost you in each point system. (Great point counter, you are!) You have gone low carb—and possibly even braved the Keto waters, in which you only ate five foods (green veggies, fat (including full fat dairy), meats, nuts, and eggs). You learned to cook and bake (maybe using this blog—thanks!) and then quickly settled in to a low carb lifestyle when you decided Keto was just plain boring! (Sorry Keto fans…a lot of us think that! 😉  We can still be friends, can’t we?)

Crunchy Ranch Chicken Breasts (Single Meal & Freezer Meal Instructions!)

 

In my more “family style” cooking days, I had a LARGE repertoire of recipes. Now that I look back, I realize it was too large for our size of family (nine total) and for my time constraints (managing and homeschooling a large family didn’t leave a lot of time for the level of kitchen experimentation I did—and this often left me frustrated). Fast forward to my tweaking of recipes to make them more healthful, and I have some of the same problems—too much experimenting, too many recipes, and on and on! (Doesn’t look like I have learned much over the years!)

 

When I revisited this recipe to make it healthier, I thought of all of those things…then dug right in to it to tweak it! 😊 This is one of my freezer entrees. This means that you get the original recipe to feed six….then the doubled version and quadrupled version for your freezer.
