Small Savings – Big Fortune

 

Buy reconditioned products – The meaning of this is the product has been returned to the factory where it was inspected and refurbished to working order. You may need to ignore the scratches and make sure that it comes with a warranty. An example is say a cordless drill that goes for $238 new can be brought refurbished for $157 – Saving $81

 

Make your own salad dressing – A store-bought salad dressing can cost about $3 or more. Make your own.

A vinaigrette dressing is :- 2 tablespoons of wine vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup of olive oil and pepper to taste. Put in a nice container and shake before using.  Save about $1.50 a week if you eat salad most days (half a bottle) – Saving around $75 a year

Ok Girls Get Rid Of That Cellulite For Summer

41eBWcF6zPL

I tape Dr Oz every day of the week. Sometimes its a little Ho Hum, but today, very informative I thought. It was a subject dear to my thighs and ass, especially for those of us that venture to the beach or to the pool in our swimmers, be it a one piece or bikini.

Cellulite reduction therapies that you can do at home. (He had the real life photo’s to prove it).

The first one.

kelp-powder-540x314

Seaweed concoction:

1/4 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup sea salt (coarse stuff)
1/2 cup seaweed powder (I am sure you can get this at a drug store or health food shop)

Stir the mixture which becomes a green color.
Rub this on the areas most needed, morning or night or both. I would use one of those rough hand gloves you get for the shower. Leave it on for a minute or so then shower it off.
Apparently it is a little messy but worth it, so in the shower or bath area is probably a good idea.

Option No two.

Pineapple

1/2 a cup three times a day. Suggested ways:

1. Cottage cheese, pineapple and cinnamon for breakfast

2. Cucumber, pineapple, sprinkle with lemon and chili powder maybe for lunch.

3. Tuna, pineapple, onion as a snack.

They also suggested you could take a supplement called Bromelain. Bromelain is an extract derived from the stems of pineapples.
So if you can’t handle all that pineapple you could use the supplement.

Go Get it Girls

5 Healthy Foods That Have More Fat Than A Doughnut

 

jam-doughnut_1603342c

I assume what they say is true, if so a doughnut once in a while can’t do too much damage. My favorite doughnut is a jam doughnut especially warm and fresh.

 

Avocado-5918425_l1

1. Half an AvocadoGlazed doughnut has 14 grams of fat. Half an avocado has 15 grams of fat. In avocado, 10 of those grams are monounsaturated fats, which improve cholesterol levels.

I am not sure about this one as I eat half an avocado a day and don’t see any improvement. They may also prevent the accumulation of belly fat, according to a study published in Diabetes Care.

2. Two tablespoons of peanut butter – 16 grams of fat, about half of which is monounsaturated.

3. One Ounce Unsweetened Dried Coconut – 18 grams of fat. But new research suggests there’s a place in healthy diets for saturated fats. You definitely don’t want to go overboard with dried coconut as they are saturated fats.

 

eggs3

4. 3 Large Eggs – You’ll get just more than 14 grams of fat from a breakfast that includes three eggs. The fat content breaks down fairly evenly between saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats.

NYE12Olives

5. 12 Olives – 15 grams of fat, the vast majority of which is monounsaturated. Olives like all of the above offer more nutrients than a doughnut.

 It seems to be, what ever tastes soooooooo good seems to ‘Not be good for you’.  You can be sure one doughnut is not going to put you into deadly heart attack spin so one every now and then has to be good for the soul. Well that is my opinion.
