Tips on Tipping

By | MS&J Feed | No Comments

Listen to Jodi explain this at 43 minutes into the show podcast below:

According to Business Insider

How much to tip varies by service but is generally 18% of your bill.

 

“You can also consider creating an entirely separate category within your budget only for tipping. This means that if your tipping category runs low, you can decide how to dine out based around the tipping amount.” When in doubt, always tip at least a little something.

Uber/Lyft
$1 to $2 per person for shorter rides; 10% (up to 20% for exceptional service)
Tip at the end of the ride, and tip extra for traffic, construction, distance, inconveniences, and if the driver helps with luggage or packages.

Waitstaff

15% (up to 20% for exceptional service)

Package Delivery

$5 (up to $10 for exceptional service)

Tipping here should be considered as an extra gift for those hauling heavy packages to your door. If they had to climb several stairs or it’s extremely hot, consider tipping more.

Movers

$5 (up to $10 for exceptional service)

Tipping here should be considered as an extra gift for those hauling heavy packages to your door. If they had to climb several stairs or it’s extremely hot, consider tipping more.

Haircuts

10% to 15% (up to 15% to 20% for exceptional service)

Tip after the service is completed, and tip everyone involved. For example, different people washing and drying your hair should receive $5. The person doing most of the work should receive the biggest tip.

Food Delivery

$10% or $2 minimum

Tip when paying online or when the food is delivered.

Concierge

$5 (up to $20 for exceptional service)

Tip when you receive the service. Tip little or nothing at all if the concierge only provides directions.

Healthy Bedtime Snacks

By | MS&J Feed | No Comments

We all know how difficult it is to resist reaching into the fridge on the way to the bed. Hopefully, you can fill your fridge with some of these light snacks that will be better for you and your sleep.

According to Cooking Light

Popcorn

One of the main benefits of popcorn is the visuals! You’re consuming less while your brain sees more. Think of comparing a whole bag of popcorn to a whole bag of chips. Which one takes up more space in the bowl and how much will an entire bowl of either impact your daily consumption? Popcorn is lighter on the calories and promotes better digestive health.

 

Salted Watermelon

Low in calories and maxed out hydration factor. Putting a smidgen of salt onto some watermelon will bring out the sweetness of the fruit as well. It’s the perfect snack for hot summer nights.

Roasted carrots and sunflower seed butter

A strange combination will bring you protein and carbs in a light and healthy way. It’s not too filling (an important factor before bed) and you can always add some chocolate to the mix to sweeten the taste.

Greek yogurt

I think we all have a sense that this stuff is good for you. This will also deliver protein and carbs in a way that will not keep you full but will make you feel refreshed before bed.

 

Raw unsalted pumpkin seeds

You know how eating turkey at Thanksgiving makes you tired? I’m sure you’re aware of the reason it does that: tryptophan. Surprisingly, pumpkin seeds also contain this amino acid and that will not only give you healthy fats and fiber, but will promote a better night’s rest thanks to the boost in serotonin that these seeds provide.

Recipe: Stuffed Zucchini Boats

By | MS&J Feed | No Comments

We’ve been a little obsessed with Zucchini lately if you haven’t heard. So if you don’t feel the same way we do about it, here’s a recipe that will hopefully get you on the boat with us.


Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats

According to Food Network

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

With a teaspoon, scoop out the flesh from the interior of the zucchini, so they resemble boats. Place the zucchini boats in a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish. Chop the zucchini flesh and set aside.

In a medium saute pan over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and let heat through. Add the sweet and the hot Italian sausage, and cook for 4 minutes. Add the garlic, onion, chopped zucchini flesh, tomatoes and some salt and pepper. Cook until softened, about 4 minutes.

In a medium bowl, add the Parmesan, mozzarella, breadcrumbs and parsley; mix to combine.

Spoon in and mound the sausage mixture into the zucchini boats. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over top. Place in oven and bake until golden on top, 20 minutes.
