How to Spice Cauliflower Easy Recipes for Healthy Flavorful Eating 300x225 How to Spice Cauliflower   Easy Recipes for Healthy Flavorful EatingLike broccoli, kale, cabbage and collard greens, cauliflower is a cruciferous food. What that means is that it is especially suited for building up the immune system. It contains a substantial variety of vitamins and nutrients, including the anti-inflammatory vitamin K. As if that wasn’t enough it has lots of fiber. The only down side is that it contains elements, as do most vegetables, that aren’t compatible with people who suffer from gout or kidney stones. If this is the case, you might want to maintain track of your intake.

When shopping for cauliflower heads or curds, more leaves often means fresher. This is because the leaves tend to protect the florets. Size has nothing to do with quality. Heads should be tightly packed and closed. Avoid the brown spots on the florets and support it stored so that the stem points down. They should last about a week in the refrigerator.

Healthy Muffin Recipe with Yoghurt and Oats

Posted by: admin on: April 24, 2012

Healthy Muffin Recipe with Yoghurt and Oats Healthy Muffin Recipe with Yoghurt and OatsSweet treats for kids that are also healthy can be hard to reach by, healthy treats that the kids actually like even harder. This recipe has been tried and tested by a piece of the blogging community all around the world and as far as I can verbalize has been universally a hit with kids and parents alike. The muffins are moist and hold for a few days, have a capable crust and flavour and regain devoured as soon as they have cooled down enough to eat. Mums like them because the yoghurt and oatmeal ingredients spell Nutrition with a capital N, kids like them because they taste advantageous and they didn’t actually survey you putting that healthy stuff in, when you were baking them. If your kids are picky and recoil in apprehension from such things as dead yoghurt and oats, explain them with the baked muffins without telling them what’s in them!

You can experiment with your acquire flavours. I venerable banana and cinnamon for mine, as that was what I had in the house and because my kids retract raisins out of any baking, leaving a stagger of crumbs around the house, or a heap of raisins and crumbs for me to eat in Hoovermum mode. I’d like to try with nuts too, but again only one child likes nuts so the same thing would happen…I do absorb that chocolate chips would go down well though, if only I had some in the house!

What Is Cellulite?

Posted by: admin on: April 24, 2012

If you’ve ever flipped through a celebrity tabloid while in line at the supermarket, you’ve probably come across the term ‘cellulite’. Stars at the beach can face ridicule over the look of their thighs, and you’re guaranteed to find at least one ad in the back of the periodical that claims it will help you get rid of yours before bikini season rolls around. But what is cellulite and exactly how tough is it to erase from your body?

Cellulite is often simply defined as ‘cottage cheese thighs/butt’, which isn’t very informative (or flattering). It is not an object or a disease, but in reality a description. It refers to a change in the surface of the skin caused by subcutaneous fat that protrudes out from its surrounding connective tissue. The result is skin that is dimpled and padded, looking very uneven, and it shows up in the abdomen, upper legs, and pelvic region.

Hormones play a major role in cellulite formation; since it occurs in up to 90% of females, estrogen is thought to be a factor, but no clinical study has proven it. There is also a genetic factor that will contribute to someone being more or less likely to develop it. A high stress lifestyle causes an increase in certain neurotransmitters and hormones, like dopamine and adrenaline, which may also play a role.

Despite the fact that cellulite occurs in most adolescent and adult females and medical consensus is that it’s a normal condition, many people feel ashamed of it. While there are many different therapies available, there has been limited empirical evidence that any of them permanently erase cellulite. However, good diet and exercise can diminish the appearance of cellulite.

A couple of slimming body wraps might help too; they are a spa treatment that involves being wrapped in bandages soaked in mud and minerals which can help give your skin a tight, supple quality. If you’re looking to cut down on stress levels and boost your confidence, a serenity wrap is a great way to pamper yourself and take care of your skin.
