I don’t exclusively eat a low carb diet but when I create some of these low carb recipes I have to admit they are darn good. Just lately I find that I’m going in for seconds and thirds and my wife who seems to catch me tells me that I must be changing my ways. These days we hardly eat bread, pasta, potatoes or anything too high carb in our house which is a good thing because too many carbs can lead to excess weight gain. In keeping with our new way of eating in the CBB house (at least for my wife) I work hard to create alternative healthy low carb recipes that she can enjoy. Mrs. CBB told me that these cheesy cauliflower hash browns hit […]

Why your Facebook feed is flooded with a lucrative gift card offer

FREE DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN FREE   I know many of you who are on Facebook may have noticed a spike in Facebook fans sharing posts about how they managed to grab a $500 Costco gift card by sharing. Sounds lucrative and typically these types of advertising schemes on social media are too good to be true. Pop-ups suck! Why? Many are just hoops, read on!   What is the easiest way to make money? Work for it! Yup, I know it’s hard to swallow but that’s life. If you were one the many people who thought that internet money was going to fall into your lap with 5 easy group shares you’re not alone. I can’t even begin to tell you how my Facebook feed was flooded with Facebook fans who were sharing a giveaway not sponsored by Facebook or Costco in any group they could find. Ads on Facebook plague social media users on a daily basis and many people have thrown in the towel moving on to other platforms because they simply can’t handle how Facebook has become such a showcase for money grabs. Then again what comes free such as the Facebook platform means that the company […]

grocery game monthly challenge

The Grocery Game Challenge #1 May 6-12,2013- Getting Back On Track With Food Budgeting

Getting back on track with food budgeting and eating healthy can be tough especially if your grocery bill looked anything like ours in April. Since the wife altered her eating habits slightly by starting a low glycemic diet last month she’s been working on putting  a low gi list of foods together. She was struggling with what to eat on a low glycemic diet so a bit of research has gone a long way for her. My mate who is also a doctor but specializes in healthy eating and alternative medicines spoke to us a bit about the gi diet, eliminating fructose and the caveman diet or the paleo diet which I will get into in another post. It’s certainly not a diet for the foodies faint at heart as there’s not much to it. Must like twigs and berries but all kidding aside the paleo diet seems like one heck of a healthy diet. The Mrs. will certainly be focusing on less carbs and more proteins in her meals. Eating Healthy To Lose Weight If you want to eat healthy that means making changes to the diet that may or may not affect your grocery budget. Over time once you build […]

Taking My Life Back While Getting Fit On A Budget!

Guest Post: Bonnie Taking back my life and getting fit, You bet I am! My name is Bonnie and I’m a 53-year-old woman who has been overweight most of her life including childhood. I have a love hate relationship with food and used it as comfort source towards painful issues. I’ve been on many diet programs and have managed to lose some weight but no long-term successes. I realized the number one reason for the continued failures was my inability to embrace the healthy lifestyle as a “permanent change” and not a temporary fix. Where It All Began  It started back in 2007 when my husband took sick and diagnosed with end stage liver failure and liver cancer. I was so busy caring for him that my life was put on the back burner. I was filling my emotional void with fast and fatty foods, even if I wasn’t hungry. We eventually both lost our jobs due to his illness and I had to care for him as his memory was slowing drifting away. Shortly after we became homeless until our daughter and grandson opened their home to us. My husband was placed on the transplant list to hopefully get a new liver before […]

5 Exercise Methods That Cost Absolutely Nothing!

Guest Post Not everyone thinks of the simple exercise methods they can easily do at home costing them nothing at all. As the summer approaches, everyone steps up the effort to start looking a little bit better. Over Christmas and New Year’s we’re known to indulge in a few things that aren’t exactly beneficial for our weight, so the few months after are always a struggle to get back into shape. The best way to do this is to eat properly and exercise. Many people join a gym, but some people don’t have the money  or the time do be doing so. Here are 5 great ways to exercise and lose weight and save money at the same time. Running/Walking The most obvious and popular method is going for a run. On my way to work, I’m constantly having to shift over for runners to get past me. On average, a person can expect to burn 700 calories with an hour of running – so if you can keep to a balanced diet, that’s a pound lost every 5 days (3500 calories to a pound). It’s free and can be done pretty much anywhere. If you’re like me, however, and don’t like […]
