In-law survival guide
Celebrating Thanksgiving with your in-laws this year? Avoid any holiday relationship stress by reading our six survival tips below.
Bite the bullet
It's important to attend your husband's family functions, even if you don't particularly get along with his relatives, so don't drag your feet or try to get out of Thanksgiving dinner with your in-laws when he asks. By missing his family's get-togethers, you risk ostracizing yourself from them and creating unnecessary tension on the occasions you do show up, as his family might take it personally that you are avoiding them. Instead, suck it up and remember the real reason you are there: to support your husband.

IS GRAZING MAKING YOU FAT?
Health experts often say that having several small meals a day can really help activate your metabolism so grazing could be a good idea for those wishing to lose weight. I myself find it hard to do this and prefer like many people to have 3 meals a day and snacks, but it does depend on the choices you make with food.
If you choose to graze on food that is high in fat and dense in calories it could wreak havoc with your weight. Two key components that assist with weightloss is being active and having a metabolism that is working well.
How to Stop Snacking and Grazing on Junk Food
Let’s face it – America has an obsession with snacks. Chips, cookies, candy, trail mix, etc – easy to grab and easy to access foods that many of us unconsciously graze upon during the day and at night after dinner. Some of us have a sweet tooth, some a more savory palate, and there are processed delights for all.
Why we snack? There can be many reasons why we decide to grab a family size bag of Doritos before we settle in for a movie. Here are a few:
We’re bored: food and boredom go together hand-in-hand. People tend to graze because they are not doing anything else. This happens at work too – if you aren’t challenged, you may hit the vending machine.
We’re stressed: snacks can be a coping mechanism. Eating something that is a guilty pleasure releases endorphins, and therefore turns that frown upside down.
It’s a habit: One of the toughest things smokers have to deal with when quitting is the habit of always putting their hand up to their mouth. For snackers, it could be the habit of sticking your hand in a bag or always having some sort of food around when you are in a sedentary position.
It’s there: I recently came back to my office to find 2 packages of M&Ms on my desk. Thank goodness I’m not a fan, but if they were Reese’s Pieces, consider them gone.
How to Stop Snacking and GrazingNow I warn you, none of these steps will be popular. Eating healthy takes a lot of hard work if you are ever going to lose weight.
Be Disciplined and Commit: I decided to start with the most unpopular. Now you’re not going to just quit cold turkey (a good healthy alternative snack, by the way), but start by making a promise to yourself that you are going to do this.
Make a Snack Journal: Food journals are popular, and making one specifically for snacks can help you to identify your weaknesses and make the appropriate changes. For example, for one week write down every time you snacked (day and time), what it was, and how much. Then, look back and see what you indulged in, and what little changes you can make.
Set An Alarm: Once you grab that bag of whatever, set an alarm for 5 minutes. When it goes off, the bag goes back to where it came from.
Plan Your Snacks: if you plan out the good snack you are going to eat, you will start a new habit towards eating healthy. Be sure to include a protein to help to satisfy your hunger faster. For example, make some turkey or lean roast beef roll ups with a piece of cheese, or buy 100 calorie packs of almonds or pretzels, or prep some tuna with salt, pepper, spices and a little olive oil, and place on top of vegetable crackers.
Get Rid of It: Out of sight, out of mind. If it’s not there, you can’t snack on it. If you finish off a box of oreos, don’t add it to the shopping list. In fact, avoid that aisle all together.
Do Something to Get Your Mind Off Snacking: Try this – if you snack while watching TV, try getting some housework done instead of just sitting on the couch (fold laundry, dust, organize items in the room, etc). Or, you can use this time to exercise! The TV is the best place to exercise as it distracts you. Do some crunches, push ups, stretches, leg lifts, etc.
Baby steps. Small changes little by little will help you to change your snacking habit.

Things You'll Need
I’ve realized how much I thrive on challenges. For better or worse, this means I can be challenging. If things are going “too well,” it must mean a challenge needs to be found. (I’m working on this). Sometimes this leads to walking away from a situation and then thinking of one hundred things you could have said or done differently. I handle challenging times with impulsive decision making. Knowing that I could be totally wrong – I make a decision and run with it. Sometimes this is called confidence. Sometimes it is called ignorance. I would like to pick out the good challenges from the bad. The ones that I know are worth fighting for and the ones I think are good for me but can really be avoided.
Some people thrive on adventure, never sitting still, always moving. Others thrive on giving their talents where they can – acts of service, writing, or music.
Sprouting at home takes only a few hours per week and few minutes to water them each day. In fact, after sowing, you rest two days without watering them. The hassles are minor, the costs are low, and the freshness is wonderful.
What to Sprout? Most seeds can be sprouted and eaten but avoid sprouting any seeds from plants that may have poisonous parts. There are many organic seed suppliers in the internet and a few in Singapore. Common seeds for sprouting include alfalfa, fenugreek, lentils, peas, pine seed, radish, mung seed, sunflower seed and red clover. Mung beans have been sprouted in Asia for thousands of years; it is the most common sprouts Asians eat. In the ancient days; while the western sailors develop skin problems due to too much meat and no vegetables, in their diet. The Eastern sailors don’t have these problems. They sprout “Green Bean” in their ship and harvest every 3 days to 4 days.
The value of Broccoli Sprouts
Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables around due to naturally occurring sulforaphane glucosinolate. Broccoli sprouts naturally have about 50 times more sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets? They’re also a good source of fiber.
Sprouts provide a concentrated source of nutrients and are fairly simple to make.
A sprouts fan was rushed to hospital after eating too many of the traditional Christmas Day veg.
Now doctors say Brussels sprouts should come with a health warning for patients on blood thinning medication.
The leafy green veg contains vitamin K, a chemical which promotes blood clotting and works against anticoagulant tablets.
The patient, from Ayrshire in Scotland, was prescribed anticoagulants after suffering heart failure last year and his dose was monitored once or twice a week to prevent blood clotting.
