With 30 million green-bean casseroles set to appear on Thanksgiving tables next week, my good friends at Del Monte thought us Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), as well as devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss might like me to serve up some fun green-bean casserole facts with our green-bean casserole!

First…
…which U.S. State Loves the Green Bean Casserole the Most?
Del Monte asked 1,500 Americans to “go green bean” and rate their fondness for the classic green-bean casserole side dish.

Here, the TOP 20 U.S. STATES THAT LOVE GREEN-BEAN CASSEROLE

#1:  Kentucky (78% of residents ‘really like or love the dish’)
#2:  Wisconsin (77%)
#3:  Missouri (76%)
#4:  Iowa (75%)
#5:  Maine (74%)
#6:  New Hampshire (73%)
#7:  Florida (72%)
#8:  Colorado (71%)
#9:  California (69%)
#10: Mississippi (68%)
#11:  Oklahoma (67%)
#12:  Utah (66%)
#13:  Kansas (66%)
#14:  Texas (65%)
#15:  Maryland (64%)
#16:  Ohio (63%)
#17:  Massachusetts (62%)
#18:  Illinois (61%)
#19:  Michigan (60%)
#20:  New York (60%)

And now…
…the TOP FIVE ‘SECRET INGREDIENTS’ FOR GREEN-BEAN CASSEROLE:

Del Monte also asked state residents to rate their favorite “secret ingredient” — a single, creative item that can be added to the casserole’s iconic green bean, cream of mushroom, and french fried onion flavors to make it unique and different.

According to the survey, the Top 5 most-wanted secret ingredients are:

#1:  Bacon (37% picked it as their favorite secret ingredient)
#2:  Cheese (19%)
#3:  Mushrooms (15%)
#4:  Bread crumbs, croutons, or crushed crackers (12%)
#5:  Almonds (8%)

And now…the actual Del Monte Recipe:  Green Bean Casserole.

Our Lady of Weight Loss instructed me to remind you to know thy calories, read thy labels and/or check out all nutritional information on a calorie counter.  Your basic green bean casserole serving size is 1/2 to 2/3 cup.

A few years ago, I started a fun Thanksgiving tradition! I asked those who would be celebrating with us to email me their favorite Thanksgiving quote a few days prior to the festivities, giving me to time to get my creative juices in gear!  Once received, using a celebratory font, I printed them out and placed one quote with each place setting. When we sat down to dine, we read the quotes aloud and guessed who they belonged to!!! What fun! Lots of belly laughs, which not only counts as exercise, but it also added to our feelings of gratitude.  Share your favorite Thanksgiving Quotes!  #IAmThankfulFor

Here are this year’s 26 Thanksgiving Quotes to Chew On!

SAY WHAT? Student Refuses To Be Weighed; Sent to Principal

Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Coach,  Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Your GAIN is My PAIN, Call me! ~ Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Did you hear about Ireland Hobert-Hoch, the student from Southeast Polk Junior High in Pleasant Hill, Iowa, who refused to get on the scale to have her height and her weight recorded and was promptly sent to the principal’s office?

According to the Des Moines Register, as part of the FitnessGram program, Ireland’s class was having their height and weight measured to calculate their body mass index (BMI).

Ireland said that she didn’t feel like her weight was the school’s business, and her refusal to have her weight evaluated in front of the class inspired other girls to follow suit.

I wish that Ireland had been in my class or that back in my day I’d have had the courage to say “No!” to that type of humiliation.

For you see, when I was weighed and measured in second grade we girls were told to strip to our underwear, stand in line, and wait our turn on the scale.

I remember it well. The school nursed who frighteningly towered over all of us bellowed, “Next.” I approached the official doctor style scale and timidly climbed on. The nurse fiddled with the iron weight and once it held steady, she roared for all the world to hear, as her very quiet assistant charted it for the official records, “Taylor, 112.”

There I stood, not so tall, seven years old, 112 pounds. I was the fat one. “Next.”

I understand that Principal Daily with the school board will be discussing the matter at an upcoming meeting, at which time they will decide whether to continue weighing children.   My vote: A Big FAT NO to weighty shame and humiliation!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: How to Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Minutes?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss, How would you like to drop 10 pounds in 3 minutes? “Impossible,” you say. Short of chopping off your head, you are right. But you could look 10 pounds thinner in 3 minutes or less!

Here’s how:
Wear clothes that fit and go monochromatic!

If your clothes are too tight or too loose, then trade them in for clothes that actually fit. You will look a whole lot thinner. And then for a longer, leaner look, wear just one color from head to toe.  To add a layer of interest, try a nice mix of textures. Cashmere, suede, velvet, soft wool—all delicious!

Other “thinning tricks:”

Deep-six the ruffles and the pleats.
Make sure that your skirt is longer than it is wide.
Hemlines should hit the narrowest part of the calf.
Wrap-around skirts can effectively camouflage bulging stomachs, hips and tush.
Single-breasted jackets are better than double.
Tight belts and hidden pockets add bulk and attention to the midriff.
Wide-bottom pants widen, so go with straight-legged pants.
Wear hosiery the same color as your shoes.
And then…there’s always control top pantyhose and Spanx.

Sometimes it’s that simple!

Enjoy feeling svelte, thin, and slim in your ruffle-free, belt-free, monochromatic outfit!
