try vistaprint.com. If you use their designs, and allow them to put their name on your card (goes on the back, I believe), you can get 250 for free. Their prices are also reasonable otherwise if you want your own custom design.
No matter what your card looks like, it's really the marketing you do that makes the impact. No image is ever enough.
Candied nuts are super easy and eating them is addictive. Take a couple cups of nuts of your choice (not chopped; half pieces are good); Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When melted, add about 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar. Turn the heat up to medium high. Stirring constantly, quickly add the nuts. This will cook quickly, so don't walk away. When the sugar gets dark, remove the nuts to a single layer on foil to cool.
At this point you can add some sprinkles of cinnamon or whatever you fancy.
The only way to lose weight is to expend more calories than you eat. You can probably eat what you eat now, but you need to eat less of it; you might want to switch to more meals per day, smaller portions. Get thee to a gym. 4 times per week. Get on a bike and ride to the gym - even better.
No miracle foods or way of cooking will give you what you're looking for.
I think a big mistake is to try to disguise vegan dishes so they're "like" meat or dairy. If you eat meat and dairy, there isn't any comparable substitute. It's more an acceptance thing on the part of the vegan.
It's better to cool the chocolate at room temperature. When chocolate is exposed to different temps it becomes cloudy, and pretty unattractive. It's better to just let it sit on the counter; takes longer, but then it will remain shiny and brown (provided you've heated it properly! Chocolate can be so touchy!).
Let's say you get married, and even have some kids. What a fine example he would be for them! Not only that, but once he gets really, really sick you can look forward to taking care of him throughout his illness - for years, now that we never let anyone die a natural death - and when he dies, you get to go it all on your own, with two kids to take care of!
This guy does NOT take care of himself and cares nothing for his health, and that's indicative of deeper issues. If he doesn't want to make an effort, I'd quite frankly give the whole relationship another look.
