What we put in our mouths and eat is one of the most important aspects of our health. Numerous studies have shown that controlling our intake has a very positive affect on our health! So why not control what we eat and how much we eat?! As we age, our digestive system slows down, so we may not be able to eat the rich and spicy foods we used to eat. We have made a conscious effort to limit our calories, and eat low fat, low cholesterol, low salt meals. It may sound bland, but it works! One of our favorite recipes is what we call Sweet & Sour Chicken. We sautee’ cut-up chicken breast, red peppers, green peppers, onions, and for zest we add House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce Sweet & Sour 11.5 OZ(Pack of 2).

For years, I gained a few pounds every year during the holidays. I worked at an agency where each floor would have a potluck every day during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Eating was in style, until one day a male co-worker took a photo of me leaning over and scooping some macaroni and cheese onto my plate. When he showed me the photo, I had gained so much weight that I almost didn’t recognize myself! That was a turning point for me. I began walking every day at lunchtime. It was a long, slow process to change my eating habits. This past Thanksgiving, this is what I had for my Thanksgiving feast:

I topped it off with a slice of spice cake, the one time I eat cake during the year. I am proud of my efforts and I know it is keeping me from developing diabetes and heart disease, which is prevalent in my family.
