Dr. Tim Says....

Chocolate CakeWhen I was in my twenties I had a friend who was very goal oriented. He had participated in one of those training classes on how to choose, plan and achieve an objective. He carried a picture of a baby grand piano around in his day planner and said that he looked at it all the time. He worked hard and sure enough he had his piano within his target period.

You might think that this would work for eating healthy and weight loss. Carry around a picture of yourself slimmer, maybe? (That is what PhotoShop is for, isn't it?) I had a friend who sort of did this by putting up pictures of skinny people on her refrigerator. This seems to make sense but what about carrying around a picture of chocolate cake? Can looking at photos of what tempts you to snack actually help you eat healthier? It appears that it can (cool, huh?). The Picture of Success

Featured Recipe

Beef Tips in Brown Gravy | GERD / Acid Reflux Friendly Version

Sliced OnionsThis is a recipe that I remember from my childhood. I am not sure how my mother made it but I can remember the taste and this is it. A rich umami flavor from the caramelized mushrooms and onions combine with the beef for that great comfort food flavor. Perfect for a cold winter's night.

This recipe is safe for Coumadin users, low in sodium and lactose-free. Those with gluten allergies should use gluten-free pasta in this dish.
