1. Believe it or not, beer has some nutritional value in the form of antioxidants, B vitamins, electrolytes and carbohydrates. All of these attributes can play a role in recovery. Antioxidants help to reduce oxidative stress (which is induced by inflammation), B vitamins aid in metabolism functions, electrolytes assist in fluid balance and proper cell function, and carbohydrates replenish energy. This of course is recommended for a light-to-moderate consumption.
Non-alcoholic beer has about half the calories and potassium. Due to its lower amount of alcohol (typically about 0.5% alcohol by volume), non-alcoholic beer provides the benefits of beer without the potential for alcohol’s negative effects.
Always avoid binge drinking after races because we know that’s not good for your body.

2. Just another reason to love Peanut butter. It can cure hiccups! United States study spent five years studying hiccups and ways to stop them. The best remedy they came up with was to slowly eat a spoonful of peanut butter. Apparently it spreads a coat on your throat and you concentrate on chewing, your breathing pattern stabilizes and the hiccups disappear.

5. That cheese could be the secret to a longer lifespan. A study published in the journal Nature Medicine suggests that eating aged cheese containing the compound spermidine could lead to better heart health and overall improvement of bodily functions.

1. Women should drink beer. Hops has aphrodisiac-like qualities for women, as because of the phytoestrogen it contains, which mimic natural estrogen. Low sex drive in women is often caused by low levels of estrogen.
Consuming beer, especially hop-rich varieties like IPA, could actually help restore hormonal balance and help with libido and also alleviate menopausal symptoms of fatigue, irritability and hot flashes. Of course, hops can be taken directly as a herb as an infusion, but isn’t it more fun to drink a beer instead?

5.  TSA will let you through the airport security with more than 3.4 oz of liquid as long as there is a live fish in it. Large amounts of liquids are banned because they could conceal explosives. I guess if you have a fish in it the chances are there is nothing lethal in the water.

Bacon Beer Can Burgers:

Bacon beer can burgers:

Definitely not for Vegans. But looks yummy to me. A few calories but probably means an extra day at the gym or run an extra 5 miles
Burgers wrapped in bacon, stuffed with sauteed green peppers, onions, jalapeños, garlic, and then top with cheddar and pepper jack cheeses.
Then Bake.

Poem Friday – 01/23/2015 – Start 2015 Just Right


I love the mornings, best time of the day
With a view like this it starts in a good way

IMG_0533IMG_0572

At this time I was in NZ to see my Mum
And of course ‘Charlie’ her dog love her she is such fun

Her face is so cute, of course communicates in dog talk
Especially when you are about to take her for a walk

Christmas day is a great family tradition
Mutton on spit, motor broke down, turning by hand was the decision

Many a beer had to be drunk while it cooked away
Probably what gave it that great flavor I would say

IMG_0757

Went to Mt Ruapahu a four hour trip to see friends
Snow on the mountain, a view from my bed, the beauty never ends

IMG_0974

And no that is not cloud coming from Tongariro Mountain
Its volcanic activity, spewing smoke and at times a hot lava fountain

IMG_0983

About to leave NZ and go to Australia I call home
Take charlie for his last walk with me, no lead I just let him roam

IMG_0547

IMG_0555

Now back in Australia where the morning is a beach
I know, a long way from Houston that I miss, I wish my arms could reach

IMG_0584

IMG_0607

It is such a great pleasure to watch my grandson and son
At the beach together surfing the waves while I go for a run.

Just to end I was lying on the beach sunbaking looking up at the sky
With my new camera I took this picture of the moon, It just looked beautiful that is why

IMG_1012

Ate too much at xmas so need to exercise to get fit
Boxing this morning tomorrow these steps, no time to sit

IMG_0636

But at the top is a beautiful sight
Makes you feel good and start 2015 just right

It is to your advantage financially if you happen to get bumped from a flight. If you are flexible with your flying time you should let the airline know. This will only happen if you have carry on luggage.

Some airlines will give you a voucher or cash. It can range from as little as $200 to $400 for domestic or $800 International. You can also request first class which will also give you extra points. If you are not in a hurry to get to your destination it is worth a try and some desperate passenger will love you for it.

I love this piece of information because I love the mornings but if they are correct I should be very skinny.

A recent study from Northwestern Medicine has found out that timing, intensity and duration of your light exposure during the day is linked to weight. In this study, researchers have found out that daily exposure to even moderately bright light in the morning can bring about a significantly lower BMI as compared to those who had light exposure later in the day. The researchers commented that this finding was independent of physical activity, caloric intake, sleep, age or season. Thus if you want to lose weight, you should aim to get more bright light between 8AM and noontime.

This is a very interesting article and worth the readSource
