Dr. Dukan says consunimg 1/2 tablespoon of 100% oat bran every day helps reduce the absorption of dietary fat and carbs. Plus, oat bran absorbs up to 25 times its volume in water, so it swells in the tummy to make you feel full quickly. The best time to have it? During breakfast when you wake up hungry, mid-afternoon to fend off the munchies, or after dinner to prevent tv- or movie-time snacking. Here’s on way to enjoy it.
In bowl, beat 1 egg white until foamy. In separate bowl, blend 1 1/2 Tbs. oat bran, 1 Tbs. nonfat plain Greek yogurt and either 1 tsp. zero-calorie sweetener suited for baking (like stevia) or pepper, herbs, and/or chopped garlic. Combine egg white and oat mixture. Cook in nonstick pan over medium heat 8 minutes, or until golden, turning once.
I’m not much of a jewelry person. A simple pair of earrings are my only jewelries whenever I leave the house. I do wear jewelries on special occasions but not the lavish glittery stuff. I don’t know but, they’re just not my thing. I do, however, like the twin link leather sterling silver jewelry bracelet that I found online. It’s very simple and it’s so me. It’s something that I can wear everyday. I’m putting it in my wish list and make sure hubs sees it.
Ever heard of the sugar vitamin called ribose? According to experts, this can be added to a healthy diet to help rev energy and facilitate slimming. A lot of its users say they felt more energized within a week of taking about 1 teaspoon per day. I haven’t this sugar here, yet but I’m sure it’s available online. It’s new and I’m not sure if it’s really effective, but if you’re going to try it, it would be best to consult your doc first before taking any new supplement.
Hubs found his old portable electric organ when we visited my in laws a couple of weeks ago. He brought it home for our son who wants to learn how to play. It’s old and totally different from the portable casio at guitar center I reviewed last month, but it’s still working. If he learns and gets pretty serious about playing, I might get him the Casio. He’s excited to attend his first lesson tomorrow and I hope this is not just one of his I’m-tired-of-that hobby anymore.
Avoid any diet that discourages the use of hot fudge.
