Time for all the New Year's diets

Well, I can definitely tell New Year's is right around the corner, and along with it all the crazy fad diets to help everyone stick to their resolutions. Check out the new "Drive Thru Diet" from Taco Bell. Wow, I can't wait to have a Fresco Burrito Chicken Surpreme. Just look at these fantastic ingredients:

Chicken, Southwest
Chicken Breast Meat With Rib Meat, Water, Seasoning [Salt, Maltodextrin, Spices, Garlic Powder, Chili Pepper, Paprika, Onion Powder, Carrageenan, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Natural Flavoring, Mixed Triglycerides, Yeast, Modified Corn Starch, Corn Syrup Solids, Yeast Extract, Alginates (Sodium, Calcium And/Or Ammonium), Cellulose, Calcium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate Used To Protect Quality, Not More Than 2% Silicon Dioxide Added To Prevent Caking, Soybean Oil], Modified Food Starch, Sodium Phosphates Soy Lecithin (Used As A Processing Aid).Contains Soybean .

Pinto Beans, Partially Hydrogenated Soy Bean Oil (With TBHQ And Citric Acid Added To Protect Flavor) , Salt.

Sauce, Red
Water, Paprika, Modified Corn Starch, Salt, Onion Powder, Tomato Powder, Spices, Garlic Powder, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Malic Acid, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Silicon Dioxide As An Anticaking Agent, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid

Sounds delish doesn't it? Good luck to those who try it. I think I'll stick with homemade chicken fajitas with fresh salsa and chunky guacamole. Yum!

Best wishes to everyone for a fantastic New Year! Cheers!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Wow, this holiday season has been a tough one! So many goodies, parties, dinners, outings, etc. I try to tell myself that it's ok to indulge a bit, after all, it IS the holidays! Well, that has gotten me nowhere.....except feeling bloated and tired. Never one to let that get me down, I am going to enjoy the rest of the holidays on a more primal note. I'm really looking forward to my brother-in-law's Prime Rib on Christmas. He makes a mean piece of meat!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and is able to spend time with friends and family because that is what the season is all about. Whatever you do, just be sure to enjoy yourself! Cheers!
