Those who are calorie conscious always seem to freak out when it comes to potatoes. Really when it boils or rather bakes down they are quite nutritious and with the right topping delicious. As you can see from the pictures below they really don’t have that many calories. I find with vegetables one potato is enough with any of those fillings or with Protein like a steak or chicken or fish. 

My Source is Verywellfit.com and quite a good read if you are interested.

A Potato is a great add-on to your meal in the evening or lunch especially if you are looking at losing weight. It is filling and sticks to your ribs as my Mum used to say.

1. When women gossip, their levels of the ‘Love Hormone’ oxytocin go up. This is according to researchers from the University of Pavia in Italy. This makes the gossipers feel closer to each other regardless of their mood or personality type. Another way of getting the Oxytocin shot is by giving your friend a hug. Now that is more positive I am thinking.

2. Garlic repairs glass cracks? yep amazing. If you have a glass with a hairline crack, try cutting a garlic clove in half and gently rubbing it against the cracks. The high concentration of sucrose compounds will act as an adhesive.

3. Most of us thought there was only 7 continents. Apparently not. Geologists are now arguing there is an 8th. ‘Zealandia’ consists of NZ and Caledonia. It could be known as the smallest continent of all. It is not official as yet but will be when enough scientists get on board.

4. A few times each year, thousands of fish meet up to for one giant ‘tuna tornado’ because they do most of their breeding outside their bodies. The tuna gather themselves into a living tornado of reproduction, which acts as a moving wall that encircles a protected space where they can release a large volume of egg and sperm all at once .

5. Some farmers feed their cows Skittles. The reason being candy, chocolate, cereal or molasses is a cheap substitute for corn. The sugar reportedly helps cows with digestion,, increase milk production and fattens up the beef cattle. Mars, inc sells their unused skittles to companies that melt them down and add them to livestock feed which is cheaper to buy than corn as corn at times is to high a price to be economical.

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
