At this time of year exercising allows us all to eat more than usual. So get ready for the big day, Xmas, by including some of these exercises, such as running, biking, swimming, doing some Pilates or Yoga whichever one you prefer, to increase your strength and burn calories.
The research by the University of Texas also said cognitive training or mental exercises assist in the improvement of your ability to plan, prioritize, problem solve and counteract age-related diseases of the brain.
Also it has been proven that aerobic training is good for the heart and also in weight reduction. It is one of the best non-drug treatment anyone can do for themselves if they are a high blood pressure sufferer.

Something new I have started doing is batch cooking on the weekends.
Over the weekend I prep foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with some snacks to get me through the week. By doing this I notice that I am not stopping at a takeout to get dinner when I am getting home late.
So I suggest you start thinking about foods that will keep in the freezer, some can be kept for months - like pancakes. Soups for a couple of days, along with salads and fruit salads, baked potato, pasta, roasted vegetables and other meals that you like.
Eating well all week is possible it just takes a little planning. I would like your feedback on this, and thanks in advance.

I love and enjoy steamed mussels, especially when I am short on time. This takes a total of 35 minutes to cook. Fresh steamed mussels is a treat you can easily make at home. Remember it can also be bought frozen, which I do sometimes, but I do pump it up with the seasonings listed.
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 shallots, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 4 pounds mussels, scrubbed and debearded
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt or more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Heat oil in quart pot over medium to high heat. Add shallots, garlic and cook stirring often until lightly browned. About 4 minutes.
Add mussels and white wine and cover. When mussels starts to open cook for another 5 minutes. Add parsley and butter, salt and pepper and cook uncovered for another 3 minutes.
Serve with crusty bread, salad or pasta. Your choice. Yummy!!!
Makes 4 servings.
