If you haven’t tried POM Wonderful juices now is the time. I had read about the fantastic health benefits and a cute bottle of pomegranate juice fit the bill. I found it a little concentrated, but cut it with seltzer. Now POM has perfected the magic – POM Lite beverages – new flavors,fewer calories – and all the good stuff left in. De-lish. Change it up this afternoon !
To satisfy my pregnancy cravings without overindulging I’ve discovered Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Brownie. These delicious treats are only 90 calories and provide 20% of your daily fiber. The chewy texture and chocolate chips make these my new favorite treat! They can be found at all major grocery stores nation wide.
This is the first of three cookbooks I love – especially going in to summer although can be used all year ! Purchase on Amazon.
Simply recipes and I love her direction to keep is basic, not fuss and have a drink while you cook !

One of two Summer Standards: these two recipes are simple, easy and delicious:
1lb cooked good quality cocktail shrimp
1 28oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 Vidalia Onion chopped
1 large jalapeno diced (2 if you prefer)
1 bunch washed, chopped cilantro
4-5 limes juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
Rinse shrimp and combine all ingredients in a large bowl; flavor is best if made an hour or two in advance. Serve with Tostitos Scoops chips if possible because they hold the salsa perfectly.
1lb Shrimp Serves 6 adults as an appetizer.
Second Summer Standard: these two recipes are simple, easy and delicious:
Cooked corn off the cob (perfect use of leftovers)
1 bunch cilantro; washed and chopped
1 bunch chopped scallions or onion
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half Olive oil+red wine vinegar to taste
Flavor best when made an hour ahead, but not necessary.
You can add almost anything to this recipe – fresh mozzarella or goat cheese, basil in place of cilantro, orzo pasta.
