Just for laughs

Trying to Explain a Health Article That You Just Read and You're Like....

I can't tell you the number of times I've read a really informative health article and then when I tried to explain it to someone else... it comes out like what our friend Jacob says in the video below.  I'm guessing you can relate!  I just thought this video was too funny not to share.

Backstory- I spent the weekend with my newlywed friends in Minneapolis and this was just one of the hilarious moments we had.  I pulled out my phone to capture this "enlightening" conversation we had while washing dishes. 

OK- so is there a topic that you understood when someone explained it to you, but you can't quite explain it to someone else?  Leave a comment!

I'm curious to see what kind of health topics you are interested in or have learned about recently.  For us, it's canola oil.  We just learned that even in organic products like chips and mayonnaise, canola oil is an ingredient that disqualifies a product from a home on our shelf!

Keep learning and be healthy-

How to make burnt cilantro lime rice

A friend told me that she has recently been making Chipotle copycat cilantro lime rice.  So I decided to try it myself.  Here is how to make it:

1.  Google the recipe for Chipotle copycat cilantro lime rice
2.  Put the rice on the stove to cook
3.  Go outside to weed the garden
4.  Loose track of time while listening to an audio book on your ipod
5.  Come inside when you smell smoke
6.  Voila- you now have burnt cilantro lime rice!  Didn't I say it was easy?

That's pretty much the story of my life lately- trying to cook things FROM the garden while working IN the the garden!

In all seriousness, this recipe was very good the SECOND time around- when I did NOT burn it.

What have you been cooking lately?  Is there anything specific you would like recipes for?
