That looks so delicious ! I love healthy food. The only problem is that I am so thin and it's hard to gain weight ...not always easy eating tons of calories to not look like a skeleton..... Most say to me " oh that must be fantastic, to eat what you want and don't gain an ounce" Oh no it isn't, sometimes I feel sick because I have to stuff myself...and no. I am not sick...just my metabolism...we all deal with something 😊 But that looks Soooo good!

Yummy & I despise the treadmill too!

Just a suggestion, I'm 60 years old and I love going for walks. And if you have a dog, then you have an excuse to go outside and go for a walk. Dog or not, it's so much more rewarding to look at the sky and nature versus going on a treadmill, which I agree. I can't stand that either.

I know it, Dr. Lori. I started working from home again a few weeks ago, and am working hard to integrate yoga and a short walk into my daily routine, as well as eating reasonably. It's not easy, but it will be worth it for both of us. I want to be around a long time to annoy my friends!!

That looks healthy and delicious!

Yummmmm, especially the broc!!

Healthy 💪

That looks fabulous. I have fruit cake in the oven. I've been soaking the fruit in rum for a week. What's your version? Thanks for showing great recipes again...

Cauliflower is so stinky but delicious.

Interesting question from last night’s class. What’s your answer to this question? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

You are so good Dr Lori …. I too was taken by the question … I love your Teddy he is the best ….. hugs to all

Your classes are SO MUCH FUN !! Sorry I missed it but there's next month!

My son’s Bible and my grandparents’ bibles. My son’s self portrait drawing. We were in an f 4 tornado a few years ago and I had three minutes to get dogs and kids and myself into two safe spaces when we learned it had turned towards us on a 70 mile path and that’s what I grabbed before sheltering into a pantry when it hit. ( we have no basement) the tornado killed over twenty people and I will never forget the sound of it. Of all the valuable items in my home, my most precious treasures are those items.

Dr Lori, I need your help, more than you know.

If I could, it would be a pair of earrings. It would be for sentimental value as they belonged to my granddaughter. 😢

First and foremost would be my dog. Good question I have to think on it I don't know what else I would grab if I had time

I would get my two cats out, had a fire before and couldn't get the cat out. It was heartbreaking

Besides my family and pets, it would be my scrapbooks with all my kids photos over the years

Dogs. The cat is my husbands

My wedding ring. 30 year anniversary was on November 28th. Need to get my ring resized. 30 years and 4 kids...gained a few pounds. Lol

Nothing. Honest to G-d people have no idea how fast fire spreads. YOU. DO. NOT. HAVE. TIME. Make sure every living breathing being gets out safely then wave a sad farewell to the rest. This is kind of a bugaboo of mine. Not only does fire spread faster than many realize it also produces deadly fumes. There is no object worth the risk you take by not getting out right away.

Besides the obvious family and pets it would be my teddybear too. 1981 Holly Hobbie Teddybear. I've had it since I was born.

My kids, my husband and our dog. Then I would pray that God spares the other things I would want.

I have my piggie bank from when I was a child.

Photos 🙂

My dog.

My husband/family members

Awwww!! 🤗❤️

My 16 cats

Fake, I love the smell of a real tree, but to see them dumped next to the garbage cans after the holidays makes me sad, such a waste of something so beautiful & precious!

Home sick today. Nothing better than binge watching your videos! Christmas 🎄? Prefer real. Have fake. Not sure which we will put up this year.

Love the scent from a real tree. Bug I have a fake pencil tree. And I just bought a vintage fiber optic tree.

Still a real tree, but have to say that as I age I think I am going to look into a fake one. Less mess since I leave it up so long!

Fake small I have a cat now lol 🤣

I'm in Florida now and the trees are too expensive and I'd be watering all the time! But I have 6 artificial ones.

Fake to put it up early...safer this way.🎄🎄

Fake because the real is to one is to expensive.

As we are in our 80s now a fake tree it is🎄

Not real (fake) my husband allergic to them he gets real sick?

Tabletop tree. Wire with pearl beads

Fake tree

Artificial. The cats love it 😆

Artificial tree that we got in 1980.

We have a microfiber tree.

Real but should have fake-allergies!

We have a real tree

Three small fake one. But very 😍

Aluminum tree ✨

Fake this year

Small tabletop

None so far.


We have an aluminum tree with a color wheel!

Fake tree, real dog!

Comment on Facebook

My website has specials & shop page with deals!

Nope! I have everything that I need! I am a shop all year person, finding trinkets at craft fairs!

I did a gold & silver buy back event. My first one, it was fun! Most of the items are in good condition. Hardly any broken items. Lots of great resale pieces. I bought your recommended gold tester. I love it!!

Philly always a good place to shop. Great weather for a stroll in the City of Brotherly Love!

there were a few things discounted that are on my regulars list so it helped a little.

No way! No shopping this weekend!

Not at all,,, too windy to go out and 🌧️ 🌧️ all the time chose to stay in and relax

I looked but didn't find it,hmmm

Nothing interesting at the bins 🤷🏽‍♀️

Not a chance!

Shopped a local jewelry store, 15% discount. Family owned, great service!
