Movie Review

I usually only write about health topics, but thought I would take a break on that for this post.  It seems like tons of people have common colds, bronchitis, sore throats, congestion, etc. right now.  I've heard of a lot of people taking sick days from work and staying at home for the day.  If this is you, I'm recommending a movie for you to watch!  I usually don't have lots of time to watch movies and it's rare that I come across a movie that I really like.  A friend recommended "The Help" to be and I'm really glad I watched it.  It takes place down South during the 1960's.  The plot of the story is a young college graduate interviews black maids and records their stories in a book that she wants to have published.  Overall, it was a really fantastic film and fit for teenagers and on up to adults to watch.  I have not seen a movie that was made this well in a very long time.  The sets were realistic and the acting was fantastic.  It also helped teach me about a time period I knew little about.  If you're looking for a good movie to watch on a rainy afternoon, I definitely recommend this one.

Healthy Coleslaw

As spring is just around the corner, I have been making lots of my favorite healthy coleslaw lately.  The taste is amazing and the fat content is low compared to other coleslaws.  It keeps well for days in the fridge and can be made a few days in advance.  Overall, it's good to have food prepared in advance, especially when we are busy.  It makes it easier to get extra vegetables in our diets!  See the youtube video with recipe at the link below.
