Here are a few: rice, pure vanilla, and sugar. Click here to find out which other foods can stay in the pantry indefinitely.

On Friday's show, I mentioned that I would post before and after pictures from our kitchen remodeling project. Here they are!



We have finished the majority of the work, but we are still going to paint the kitchen sunflower yellow and replace the flooring. The countertops are granite and the cabinets are cherry. Our home is a former rental from the '80s and all the work that has been done on the home has been done since we purchased it.

If you eat on the run...

The fallout: Eating while on the go (driving, walking down the street, shopping) means you’re probably not paying much attention to what’s going into your mouth. Leslie Bonci, R.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, says this “grab, gulp, and go mentality” can leave you dissatisfied and unsure of what you ate, and sometimes even give you an upset stomach.

The fix: Build time to eat into your day. “If you have to, schedule it on your BlackBerry, just like you do everything else,” says Krieger. When you have no option but to dine while dashing, be prepared. Stock your purse, glove compartment, or office drawer with a few healthy choices, such as low-fat granola bars, nuts and dried fruit, and single-serving packages of crackers. “Even fast-food restaurants are offering healthier, satisfying choices, like salads and wraps with crunchy vegetables and lean meats,” says Bonci.

Challenge: Do a Google search of the term "fasting." Become educated on the subject, if you are not already, regarding the reasons to fast and precautions to take.... and if necessary, talk with your doctor. Then, ask the Lord whether He might have some type of fast for you to take on during the Lenten season.
