    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Thinking Outside of the Box!
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Part of my New Year's Resolution is to clean out the pantry and in doing so I uncovered a few boxes - of prepared meals, full of preservatives and sodium! Upon inspection of the pantry, I found it's healthier, tastier even, to think outside the box:
    Here's one made combining whole foods and one starter box:

    Zatarain's Low Sodium Jambalaya Mix
    Green & Red Pepper
    Small low sodium V8
    Turkey Sausage or Kielbasa - Sliced on diagonal and quickly sauteed/browned

    Saute garlic, onion, peppers until almost soft. Add water, V8 and Jambalaya Mix cook as directed on box. Add sausage and shrimp, cook until shrimp turns pink.

    Think outside of the box and turn something bland into something grand. What will you start with?
