5 breakfast dishes to enjoy at dinner: Comfort food fast
This all reminds me of a study in the '90's (credibly set in University based, Government and peer-reviewed studies) that suggested that IT DOESN'T MATTER when you eat--so long as its a regular schedule. So, let me get this straight: FIRST, we're not supposed to eat after 8:00pm, get 8 hours of sleep, exercise for an hour a day, and get everything else like family, shopping, etc. done. NOW, all of the above apply--EXCEPT eating the "most important meal of the day" at BEDTIME instead of in the
morning. I wonder when science will "change its mind" again? It shows *how idiopathic* modern medicine really is. First it was better to eat margarine than butter, then butter was better for you. First, you shouldn't eat eggs; now its ok. Perhaps moderation is the key, but it just goes to show that you MUST be your OWN, informed patient advocate. Don't expect medical doctors or nurses to save you.
I myself just moved into a tiny ampatrent in downtown Frederick with my boyfriend in December. We struggled for some time with this same issue; finding ways to be environmentally friendly when space is limited. We have come up with a couple of things and we're always finding ways to improve. First and foremost we tackled our direct energy use .we switched to energy efficient light bulbs, carefully watch our water consumption, and monitor the thermostat regularly to make sure were not excessive.
Save laundry until you have huge loads to do, its hard to resist washing small loads so you can wear specific items because before, you had an entire family to fill out the washer, but its not impossible. We'll even use the same towel several times before added it to the wash pile, while at my families home they have always insisted on a fresh towel for every shower. It might sound off-putting at first, but try to avoid flushing the toilet when possible. If you get a newspaper subscription, ask a neighbor if you can save them money by sharing yours with them drop it at their door after your done reading. Our personal favorite is to check out Goodwill and other thrift stores for items that we can repurpose instead of buying new. Much of our kitchen things have come from such places and I just love some of the fun retro things we find!The prospect of being environmentally friendly in a new place is quite intimidating but be optimistic! You and your boyfriend now have complete control over the products you place in your home, and much of your carbon footprint!
