enjoy a banana split—guilt-free!

“If you don’t have Mason jars, you can use drinking glasses, instead¨ —Gina of SkinnyTaste.com. “I believe in eating everything in moderation, so I love making dessert in jars to keep portion sizes in check,” says Gina of SkinnyTaste.com. “I wanted to come up with a lighter alternative to a traditional banana split, which can be pretty high in calories.

let minnie make you smile!

To enjoy the moment more, take a photo! If you think taking a snapshot will pull you “out of the moment,” think again! A new study from the University of Southern California and Yale University reveals that photographing experiences—whether it’s playing with your kids or the yummy dinner you’re about to eat—heightens your enjoyment. While photos help you notice more detail and have an easier time recalling the event later, simply knowing you’re going to snap a shot makes you more likely to get engaged in what you’re doing, which makes it more pleasurable!
