Peanut Butter is Heart Healthy

The British Journal of Nutrition found those who ate peanut butter for breakfast had a smaller rise in blood sugar than a control group not given the PB. They said...PB reduces blood sugar jumps by slowing the bod's absorption of carbs. Portion control is the key. It is heart healthy and does not have artery clogging fats. Enjoy A slater on apple slices for breackfast..try Skippy's new Dark Chocolate PB for a treat....go for it.

controlled and feeling proud

Remember you have to live. No two days will be the same. So if, one day you fall by the wayside. Fair enough. Allow yourself that lapse and move on.

Easy Juicing recipe

Using a regular blender put in frozen fruits and veggies, which are just as nutritious as fresh and not as expensive. Chop up some fresh kale, spinach and parsley. Add a natural protein such as 2 tbs peanut or almond butter. Add 1 tbs hemp seed. Just as good as expensive protein powder. Use more greens than fruit. I add unsweetened almond milk, or water or green tea.

Same food; different presentation

The basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and cheese can be presented so that it appears to be quite different meals.
Chop up your veggies and bacon and heat in skillet, pour over the scrambled eggs, put lid on top, put on low for 20 mins is a fritata. Add cheese at the end of cooking.
Or line a muffin tin with cooked strip of bacon, add the scrambled eggs, bake for 20 mins at 400 -- now you have a breakfast muffin. Top with cheese.
Or keep it simple and just scramble the eggs and bacon

Exploring Super Foods using Sparkrecipes

When I come across foods that are so-called super foods, I go immediately to Sparkrecipes to find ways to use them. The latest super foods are quinoa, chia seed and kale. I've never cooked with those foods, so it's a new culinary adventure. It's great that I have a husband that will try anything new! emoticon

Shredded Parmesan vs shredded cheddar

Parmesan has about 30 less calories per 4 Tablespoons, and half the fat. For me it's a better choice for an omelet.
Also I've noticed that already shredded cheddar frequently is coated with something that has carbs.

Snack before bedtime

I really need a snack before I sleep because I can't sleep if I'm hungry. I usually eat dinner quite early. I found that I can eat a very small snack if I drink two glasses of water first. It helps me eat less and feel fuller. Also the water serves as a natural alarm clock, since I will always have to use the bathroom before I have to get up. emoticon

Never beat yourself

Never tell yourself you made a mistake, you really just gave your body a greater challenge and your mind more motivation to work harder in the gym! Calling yourself out on double snacking or what not will only bring you down and ruin your mood with your friend or family when really ther is nothing you can do but to work harder in the gym and/or let it go. Stay Positive! :)
