Keeping Food Safe For The Holiday’s

Posted by Colleen

The holidays are right around the corner and with that come all of the good food and indulgences of the holidays. It is important to remember some safety tips when so many things will be going on in the kitchen.

One of the best ways to stay safe is wash your hands and surfaces in the kitchen frequently. Secondly, don’t cross contaminate, cross-contamination is when bacteria cross from one food to another through contact with the same surface. Thirdly, cook foods to the proper temperatures and refrigerate foods promptly.

When your inviting family and friends over to your home for a holiday meal ask to see if anyone has food allergies or sensitivities and prepare a food item accordingly. The person may offer to bring a dish that they can prepare and share with others.

The holidays are a time for sharing good food, being grateful for our abundance and enjoy time with our family and friends.

Happy Holidays!

I DID IT!

by Caroline

If you’re feeling stressed because you never seem to get to your “to do” list, make a “I did it” list for a few days. Write down what you accomplish each day. Write the time spent to it. Including everything that seems too insignificant to mention, bring the children to school, grocery shopping, preparing a healthy meal, reading to a child, listening to a friend.

MANAGE YOUR TIME AND CLARIFY YOUR GOALS TO REDUCE STRESS!

BY Caroline

Everyone gets 24 hours each day. For many people, the most common symptom of stress is the feeling that there just isn’t enough time in the day. Good time management is more than scheduling and a “to do” list. It means thinking deeply about what you really want for your life so that you spend at lest a little time every day moving toward your goals. Then, you will have the peace of knowing that what you did accomplish was truly important to you.
