HAPPY SUNDAE

Sweets for the Sweets and Sunday is a great day to partake. And I don’t mean in the ice cream sundae you see in the pic, though the recipe for it is at the bottom of the feed. Happy Sunday!

Today I’d like to focus in on the foundation of you
and encourage you to meditate on a daily to get through,
and encourage you to eat well – less carbs and less fat,
and encourage you to self preserve. Yes – we all need that.

Today I’m taking it easy. I am happy indeed.
Today my mission is to help someone and sew a good seed.
Send me a shout out – if you are in need.
Today it’s about humanity & philanthropy.

I’m a cheerful giver and a happy vibe spreader daily.
Some people receive me and some people think I’m crazy.

Presidential COOKIE Bake-Off

Michelle Obama says:
“Every evening Barack, the girls and I sit down for a family dinner with good conversation and healthy food. If we want to splurge, the white and dark chocolate chip cookies created by the girls’ godmother, is the perfect special treat.” …click here to get the recipes and VOTE

The Benefits of LUNCH

Today I decided to cook lunch, rather than do take out. Besides I’m on a tight budget and all that I had in the freezer was ground beef, turkey burger patties, frozen fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangos, pineapple, peaches) and chicken. I went with the chicken, thawed out a few strawberries, pulled fresh spinach from the fridge that I bought last night and mixed up a balsamic vinegarett and tah-dahhh! Lunch is served and the fam is looking at me like I’m a winner. …click here to continue

What’s in the Kitchen

You can say a lot of things about the FDA institution,
but you don’t have to eat fast food when there are better food solutions.

Lean burgers that won’t dry out
In an effort to cook healthier, I’ve been making burgers with lean beef — but they just aren’t as juicy and succulent as my usual recipe. So I was happy to learn this trick: Mix 1 cup of plain yogurt and 3/4 cup of bread crumbs into each pound of meat. The yogurt’s lactic acid will tenderize the beef while the bread will retain moisture. …click here for more food 411

Metabolic Miser

Your metabolism is your bodys motor. It’s beautiful. However the TUNE-UPS and products you use are what keeps it running like new, ..ie, ‘My God you haven’t gained a pound since high school. It must be your diet.’

Diet isn’t a bad word unless your eating habits are. Which also translate to, ‘Your car isn’t a crappy car, it’s the way that you’re caring for it (or lack of)’.

“As we age, we develop a gunk build-up in the hoses and valves, that need flushing every now and then to perform at our most optimum levels.”

While my youth is about me, I’m trying to get an understanding.

The benefits of LUNCH

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on July 12, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Today I decided to cook lunch, rather than do take out. Besides I’m on a tight budget and all that I had in the freezer was ground beef, turkey burger patties, frozen fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangos, pineapple, peaches) and chicken. I went with the chicken, thawed out a few strawberries, pulled fresh spinach from the fridge that I bought last night and mixed up a balsamic vinegarett and tah-dahhh! Lunch is served and the fam is looking at me like I’m a winner.

The delicious & scrumptious meal is low fat, low calorie & high in goodness as it pertains to what your body needs. The bonus: it leaves you satisfied & staves off unconcienous eating & cravings and is easy to make. Try it. Here’s the recipe::

Salad
4 skinless chicken breasts
4 cups of fresh spinach
1 cup of fresh sliced strawberries

Balsamic Vinegarett
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of fresh or dried parsley
1 teaspoon of flaxseeds
salt and black pepper

Normally, I’d grill the chicken on my George Foreman Grill, but being that I’ve loaned it out & it hasn’t returned, I had to rely on baking the chicken. I seasoned it first then baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees then in a cast iron grill pan I added the grilled lines for aesthetic purposes – to make it look good.

Then in a mason jar I mixed the olive oil, parcely, garlic, salt and pepper. I placed the lid on the mason jar tightly & shook the contents up for about 20 seconds or so.

I then dressed my plate with spinach leaves and strawberries, added the chicken and balsamic dressing and wahlah! Lunch was served. this recipe serves 4.

The health benefits of spinach, flaxseeds, strawberries and olive oil boost your antioxidant levels (which builds up your immune system), yields you iron fights off free radicals (known to convey cancers), [the flaxseeds] reduce belly fat, and the olive oil helps your skin, hair and digestive system.

This meal is a win-win and one you should have as often as possible. it leaves you satisfied minus the bloat & tiredness you get from fast foods as your stomach fights to process its over processed ingredients. You nor your stomach deserve the benefits of fast foods — so avoid them as much as possible.
