Everyone knows how bad sodas are for our health and it's not an easy thing to stop drinking them. But, besides the 3 methods presented earlier on how to give up on soda, here's another great one: why not make your own? Homemade soda isn't that difficult to prepare. Sure, you'll need to buy some ingredients and you'll need some time to prepare it, but it's definitely worth it! You will drink your own homemade soda, which means you know what you put into it, there's no need to keep wondering if some ingredient might cause you cancer (I see it's a trend lately to say that everything causes cancer...). Another reason why it's worth making your own fizzy drinks is that you will not give up on taste. Taste is one of the factors that kept you refill your empty glass of soda, right? Well,

I am now more or less (ok, less..) close to my ideal weight but that doesn't mean I'm going to start eating junk again. From now on, hopefully for the rest of my life, I'll remember how hard it is to lose those pounds and how i never want to go through that again! So, even if now I'm not exercising for 2 hours a day as I used to (I really pushed myself for a few months), I still have to find some way to maintain my weight. Well, since I definitely can't go back to an unhealthy lifestyle, I decided to stick to what I'm now used to: eating healthy. So in the last few months I learned that eating a simple salad as a side dish can allow me to have a nice juicy stake as the main dish ;) The trick is simple, you can have a nice steak for lunch or dinner (many calories) and a simple sala...

I know I already mentioned a recipe with the exact same ingredients, chicken and peas, but this time I decided to change the recipe just a little bit. Well, maybe not a little bit but more. Here's how: You need: chicken breast peas 1 spoon of olive oil half a glass of milk (3 oz or 100 ml) dill salt and other spices How to cook it: First, boil the peas if necessary (as previously mentioned, mine are usually fresh from the... freezer)  Heat up a pan with the olive oil and throw in the peas. Cover the pan with a lid and let them cook for a few minutes. When they are nice and soft, add the spices (I added a bit of salt, pepper and dill) and the small glass of milk. Cover the pan and let the peas cook for a few more minutes. Meanwhile, grill the chicken. On

Well, I'm a big fan of cheese. When I found out how many calories cheese has I wanted to cry. I couldn't believe it, I ate a lot of cheese every single day. I think that my answer to "what's your favorite food?" question is CHEESE. However, sacrifices must be made in order to be 'skinny' so I found a solution: I shall eat less cheese. Also, I shall look at the label before buying any. With that said, I have found that there are a few types of cheese that are not that awful when it comes to calorie count: cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, string cheese and others. Stop it right there :P String cheese is currently the one thing never missing from my fridge. And it's perfect for preparing grilled cheese sandwiches! You need: 2 slices of bread sliced string cheese a spoon...

Well, it's Thursday and, as you might have noticed, Thursday is recipe day :) This time, I'll try to explain how to make yet another chicken based meal: chicken and sauteed peas. This time, instead of chicken breast, I used chicken legs. Without the skin, of course. You need: 2 chicken legs (no skin) 6 ounces of peas (150-200 grams) a little butter some dill spices to your taste How to cook: Well, the first thing I do is boil the meat. This way everything will be done a lot faster. So, boil the chicken legs. Meanwhile, you can boil the peas too, if necessary. I usually use frosted peas so I boil them for 3-4 minutes. The next thing I do is separate the meat from the bone. Go ahead and take it all off the bone. Now, melt the butter in a pan on the stove.
