Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Hello and Welcome

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on February 17, 2009 ][ In Uncategorized ]

Welcome to my blog. I am a cardiologist’s wife and so many people ask how my husband and I stay “so skinny”, that I decided to start a blog about our healthy living habits and tips. Though I have no medical background, I fully share my husband’s concern about Americans’ overall health, especially heart health.

I plan to share cooking and exercise tips, health information from doctors, and our deepest secrets (my husband has a BIG sweet tooth). Being a mother of two busy children, I understand the difficulties we face in trying to fit exercise, grocery shopping and cooking into a typical week.

I will post updates weekly and I hope you will find practical suggestions, money saving tips and helpful medical information that you can incorporate into your life. I will talk about diets (what works, what is a ripoff), healthy meals, and health products. I am not promoting a major overhaul of your lifestyle but sensible, easy, small steps to improve your health.

I hope you will check back. My next post will be about menus and meal planning. Have a healthy day!
