We at Casserole Gals are not experts, physicians or licensed in any way. All content on our site, is our opinions, knowledge and experience. Before starting any weight loss or exercise program you should get approval from your physician.
If it has been longer than a year since, your last check-up, pap smear, blood work or mammogram, Make an appointment! As women/moms we tend to take care of everyone else before ourselves but, this is very important to our health. It isn't fun afterward, treat yourself to an ice cream cone, manicure, a treat of some kind.
This is a regular lunch for me, to make it more attractive I serve it on a colorful plate, with a place-mat and cloth napkin.
I try to drink a lot of water and sometimes it is really hard to do. So, I will use a wine glass, add lemon or orange, it dresses it up and makes it more appealing.
Leslie Sansone has many dvd's that get you moving and are low impact. If you can't or don't want to buy equipment, or need to exercise before your children get up or while napping, these are great. You can find several of her programs on YouTube that you can do for free.
Check out your local library, see what exercise dvd's they have. This is great if you want to try something new like Yoga or Zumba, do it before you purchase or just to change up your routine. If you subscribe to Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu etc. explore their options.
Popsugar Fitness is another site you can find on You-Tube for exercise routines, diet tips and recipes.
Linda Melone focus is on health and weight lose after 50 and or after menopause when our weight struggles are real and can be a lot harder! I heard a physician on TV say that weight lose is 80% changing our eating habits and 20% exercise. For me that may have been true in my 20's-30's but, now I feel like it is just the opposite!
This was me last fall, since then I have lost a few pounds. The key is to keep moving.
If you know me very well, you know I love these, a Cappuccino from Quik Trip. I still drink them just, not very often. You have to have rewards, I know if I make my diet too strict I am not going to stick with it.
Casserole Gals theme for 2017 is Less is More!
Clearing out and organizing your belongings is suppose to help in weight loss!
Read my posts Plastic Containers Unite and Getting Healthy and Losing Weight after Menopause and 50, for more about how I am attaining my goals for 2017.
We will be sharing this post to these wonderful Blog Parties
This drawer has been messy and a disaster for years. I couldn't find the right size lid, the bowls didn't stack, it was frustrating.
Studies have shown that clutter can make you gain weight and being organized and having less stuff can help you lose weight.
Less is More, our theme for 2017. I started with something small but, caused me a lot of frustrating moments.
I emptied the drawer and donated everything. I purchased new plastic containers, ones that the lids and bowls stack. I also, bought glass containers with lids and a couple of larger size containers. I prepped, primed and painted inside the cabinet, it is amazing how a little white paint helps!
You can see the difference, I spent $40, a little paint and time and made a major difference, On to the next project:
I am archiving all our family photos. It will take me all year to finish and I will post about it later. Better get to work!
We are sharing this post to these blog parties.
I received this as a Christmas present and I love it! I have only had the old-fashion potato peeler and this one is way better. The handle is large, which makes it easier to hold and you hold it at a different angle, which puts less stress on my wrist. After you use it, simply rinse off and let it dry.
I would buy it again and buy it for a gift. So if you are in the market for a reasonable priced gift or a new kitchen gadget, give this one a try.

Thoughts of Home on Thursday,
Football Bowl Games are coming up and we have complied our best recipes to serve for your party or tailgating event! We also, have a few tips to help make your event a success!
Our Jalapeno Popper Dip would be tasty addition to any party! Full of cheese, jalapenos and bacon it is sure to be a winner with everyone!
Tip: Bottled water is a must and freeze several bottles a couple of days before. They are great to use to keep your water cool instead of using ice.
Our Dill Pickle Dip is very fast and easy, and it can be served hot or cold, which makes it a perfect tailgating or party recipe!
Tip: Buy bandannas in your team colors to use as napkins. They will be colorful, durable and just plain cute. Your local craft store usually has them in all colors.
Our Beef Stoganoff Dip is full of meat and since it is for football, it has a bit of a kick with added jalapenos!
Our Roll With it Casserole has buns that are full of meat, cheese and spices. You may think the buns would become soggy but, they don't!
Baked Meatball Sandwiches y'all..... yum. They are SO easy and tasty! Adapt the recipe and preparation to fit your schedules and tastes, but the base recipe is a crowd pleaser!
This Cowboy Crunchie recipe can be made into bars but it could be molded into a football shape. It is a great finger food!
Tip: Remember to have single packets of Hand Sanitizing Wipes, especially for any outside tailgating.
Our Tailgating Pinterest Board is full of recipes, tips and great ideas.
A "Casserole" is not what is baked in a dish but the dish itself! It is a recipe that is cooked or prepared and served in the same dish. The container ranges in size from one pint to 10 quarts, comes in many different sizes and can be glass, cast iron, metal or earthenware. We plan to showcase desserts, main meals, breakfast, soup and non-soup, gluten free and healthy recipes all prepared in "Casseroles".
We also, want to share helpful hints on cooking, cleaning, kids, travel and one of our favorites Parties, from children themed, baby/wedding showers to "just because"! We hope you join us!
Casserole Gals won't you come out tonight
and eat by the light of the moon!
-For my birthday this year my husband bought me a Casserole Crockpot. It has a timer, which for me is a must and it is 3.5 quart, 9 x 13 inch in size. I plan on using it a lot during the holidays, it does have a locking lid for travel.
It will also, be great for tailgating and parties.
My only complaint is that the outside gets really hot, (which happens with most crock pots).
Casserole Gals Kristen made me Mac and Cheese for my birthday and it was delicious and the Crockpot heated it up without using the oven and heating up the whole kitchen.
Cooking everything in casserole dishes!
