TRUTH

Do you ever feel bad about the cravings you can't kick? Here's the good news: it's probably not you -- it's the food. Yep. Did you know some manufacturers actually test and tweak processed foods and pop to make them more addictive? (Here are the ugly details, in a New York Times article.)

Here's the hard truth: if you want to get rid of cravings, you've got to get rid of junk food and junk drinks. (And there was great wailing, and gnashing of teeth.) I know, I know: it's hard!  But it can be done.

And here's the really good news: once you do get rid of those foods and tough it out to the other side, cravings will get so much s
maller. Or maybe even go away.  Just imagine life without that daily battle in your head!

GOOD FOOD 
 
I've been making this Easy Chicken Chili every winter for years -- it's yummy and hits the spot on a cold day. But it's also a favorite because it's so darn easy! There are only two things to be chopped, and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand.
