If you have a large lawn and like to cut grass, a half hour of mowing will burn 100 calories. Live in an apartment? No problem. Thirty-five minutes of vacuuming will also burn 100 calories. And for those who are not into housework, a nice brisk half hour walk will burn that same 100 calories.

Chubby Hubby Chicken Chili

Whenever we are invited to a potluck gathering, my husband is always asked to bring his famous chili.His chili is thick, spicy and delicious, but he gives no thought to fat content or nutrition One night for dinner I made him this version made with ground chicken and laughingly called it my Chubby Hubby Chicken Chili. Although he wasn't all that amused with the name I had given it, he loved the recipe and now even substitutes chicken (or turkey) into his own chili recipe.
