  • Tips For Healthy Eating During The Holiday Season

    Although holiday weight gain is a reality for many people, here are a few strategies for avoiding those extra holiday pounds without shunning the festivities. You do not have to feel deprived this season ... just make compromises and better choices.

    HEALTHY EATING HABITS

    • Eat five or six small meals daily rather than the usual three meals. Frequent eating helps to control blood sugar and to curb your appetite.
    • Eat a light, healthy meal a few hours before the holiday event. You are more likely to control your intake if you are not extremely hungry.
    • Eat slowly and listen to your hunger cues. If you are not hungry, pass on the second helpings.

  • 12 Days Til Christmas

    Posted Under: General Area in Pensacola, Shopping & Local Amenities in Pensacola  |  December 14, 2011 4:34 AM  |  438 views  |  No comments

    Many families leave cookies and milk for Santa, but what about his reindeer?  Sprinkled on the lawn on Christmas Eve, Magic Reindeer Food leaves a glittering path ... and a sweet snack ... for Rudolph and friends! Package this simple recipe in zipper food storage bags is easy to make and to give.

    Magic Reindeer Food Recipe
    In a small zipper food storage bag or empty shaker container, mix:

    1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)

    Package Magic Reindeer food in small food storage bags or holiday gift bags.

    Note: Many Internet recipes for Magic Reindeer Food call for craft glitter, which can harm birds or wildlife if ingested. For safety, substitute colored sugar crystals and be kind to animals!

  • Holiday Gift Ideas For Home Buyers

    Posted Under: Shopping & Local Amenities in Pensacola, Home Buying in Pensacola, Moving in Pensacola  |  December 12, 2011 4:48 AM  |  720 views  |  No comments

                                                                        

    How about new keys for the home?  Home buyers receive a set of keys to the home at closing, but who knows how many other people have a copy of those keys? Could be contractors, real estate agents, neighbors or a kid who found a set lying in the street. It's a good idea to obtain a new set of keys. Some first-time home buyers might prefer a new handle and lockset, especially if the existing hardware is outdated or worn.

    Why not hire a locksmith to re-key all the doors for that first-time home buyer? A locksmith can key all the doors, including the garage, to use one key. Giving new keys is a thoughtful gift, and it promotes security.
