Remember The Land Before Time? I was 8 when it came out and LOVED it. Did you know that it was followed by TWELVE direct to video musical sequels? They are pretty much all on Netflix right now and my kids are loving them. I, on the other hand…not so much. As with all too many sequels these days, they definitely should have quit while they were ahead (Tokyo Drift, anyone??). Hopefully this conquering cravings issue does not take the same path.
I will readily admit I am not the most technically savvy person, nor am I up on the latest trends by any means. I mean, don’t judge me but I don’t even have a smart phone! So it took me awhile to realize I was not utilizing Pinterest to its fullest capacity. I was pretty much just following my friends, but then one day I wanted to pin a recipe I saw in my Cooking Light magazine instead of ripping out the page and sticking it in my overflowing expandable file of recipes to try.
And it dawned on me…Cooking Light has its own Pinterest! With almost 5,000 pins! What a better method for organizing recipes! So I quickly followed them, Health, Fitness, Clean Eating, and Eating Well magazines. So many recipes to try, all digitally and more cleanly organized than my file, PLUS no monetary investment and no wasting of trees! I am loving it. Seriously. Awesome. I try to go to one of those when I want to avoid all the amazing looking baked goods people are pinning that have me salivating.
So tonight while looking at Health’s pins (avoiding lingering on a recipe for Salted Browned Butter Snickerdoodles), I saw an article, How the Pros Curb Cravings and figured I ought to share it with you since we have been talking about it so much. They had some good ideas that we hadn’t talked about yet.
What non-friends have you found helpful to follow?
