There are two basic body types–apple and pear. Apples, like me, accumulate fat in abdomen, back and arms. The pear accumulates fat in the thighs, butt, and legs. These two separate body types need different methods to cut the fat, so you need to do a quick assessment of which type you are before you move any further into this post.
In order to continued to shrink my waist and at least feign an hourglass figure, I had to come to terms that I had to give up something I really enjoyed and gave me comfort: DRINKING.
Coffee has a remarkable affinity with beef. Here, it is complemented by balsamic vinegar, garlic and crushed peppercorns. Cooking to medium, this succulent cut of beef will bring back memories of bar-b-queue’s on the beach, friendly gatherings at the end of a summer day. A dry port or burgundy wine, or a tall frosty stein of your favorite beer is called for here, while new memories are being created. Enjoy my friends!
My own personal recipe for Crusty Italian Bread. You may or may not add sesame seeds on top. Italian bread – Perhaps a bit closer to French bread in composition and appearance, American “Italian bread” is a lean white bread, often braided and covered in sesame seeds, with a thin but usually crisp crust and a soft crumb. American “Italian bread” does not particularly resemble many traditional Italian bread forms, but is very popular in both loaf form and roll form, where it is often closely associated with sandwich making.
What does sugar have to do with heart health? Well, sugar consumption in the United States is ridiculously high, and manufacturers scheme by hiding sugar in just about everything thing, which leads to us consuming extra calories and spiking our blood sugar, which over time leads to obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance leads to diabetes, and diabetes damages all our internal organs–especially the heart. Combine that with high blood pressure and you have the perfect recipe for a heart attack. That’s why we invited Celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin, Co-Host of TLC’s hit series ‘Freaky Eaters’ in her #7 New York Times best seller, The Virgin Diet to give us some frank talk about the good, bad and ugly on the sweet stuff.
Online you can now find tons of credible research extolling the health virtues of the Japanese Sweet Potato or Korean yam (also known as “goguma”), which forms the cornerstone of the diets belonging to the globe’s longest-lived populations, like the Okinawans in Japan.
I made this last night, and it was so yummy. I basically used a traditional sweet potato pie recipe, but substituted orange yams for purple sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes are ridiculously nutritious.
This one-dish recipe has options many for meals to come especially left-overs. Make and serve now and reserve some to store and reheat. Look for dried French green lentils (Puy lentils), with packages of other lentil varieties in the dried bean section of supermarkets.
Here is a fresh twist on a classic pasta recipe. Canned clams and a pint of cherry tomatoes make this quick dinner ready in less than 30 minutes. This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe from The Two Guys from Italy Italian Restaurant. The fresh clams and herbs give this dish a lovely flavor. Very good served with a fresh green salad and some crusty bread
Here’s a real Kiev recipe, with seasoned butter rolled up in breaded chicken breasts for a richness fit for royalty! This is the way my mom would make this and it’s very traditional, and it is the best chicken Kiev you’ll ever have. After you make it a few times it’s a snap. You can adjust the flavors to taste. This recipe tastes great as leftovers also. This recipe takes a bit of time, but is well worth the effort.
