Amazing Foods That Can Erase a Day of Unhealthy Eating

Wild-caught salmon

When you need to load up on DHA, few foods match the potent punch provided by wild-caught salmon. Oily fish, like salmon, sardines, and mackerel, provide anywhere from 10 to 100 times the DHA of vegetarian sources like nuts, spinach, and whole grains.

That’s nice to know, since DHA protects the brain from inflammatory damage, improves learning and memory, and heals brain tissue injured by fructose. Salmon’s also a great source of selenium and vitamin D. And salmon is simple—cook it with butter, lemon, and dill for an easy, delicious meal. But, you will have to pay a premium. .

Walnuts

When you’re bloated, feeling gross, and your stomach is doing flips, go nuts. Literally. Just 1/4 cup of walnuts offers 133 percent of your recommended omega-3 content. And a 2015 study out of Yale suggests eating them may lead to smarter food choices. Researchers found that adding two ounces of walnuts to a daily diet for six months led to less snacking and healthier choices. Makes sense: walnuts are satisfying and reduce cravings, which helps you avoid junk.

Chia and flax seeds

Vegetarians need not despair. When you’re feeling awful after a bad day of eating, chia and flax seeds are your friend. They pack a wallop of omega-3s in just two tablespoons, and they’re loaded with fiber, which helps feed gut bacteria and aids in weight loss.

Plus, that fiber also helps empty out all the toxins you consumed. While they don’t have nearly as much DHA as oily fish, they do provide calcium, protein, and lignans—a powerful antioxidant. Plus, they take no time to prepare—just throw them into your yogurt, smoothie recipe, or baked goods.

Aloe vera juice

Aloe vera juice is a palatable cleanser after a bad day of eating.It’s a nutritional powerhouse, packed with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Aloe vera may decrease intestinal inflammation and helps repair damage in the gut. It may also increase healthy bacteria in the intestines that aid in digestion.

Shrimp and grits is my favorite meal ever. Like, if it’s on a menu, I’m ordering it. And I always forget how easy it is to make at home. But seriously, less than 30 minutes from start to finish. The spicy shrimp on the creamy, cheesy grits with the crispy bacon is just perfection.

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 1/2 teaspoons cajun seasoning

I have been eating clean for 28 days now! I have had no cheat meals, no treats, nothing. I am on a mission to lose weight. I am so close I can almost taste it. Crossfit plus having a nutritionist is finally getting it done. Yesterday I was able to wear one of my favorite dresses. Even my boyfriend was impressed and said “wow, you look skinny!” That felt so good coming from him. He has been including in his prayers each night that I will have help losing weight. Gotta love them!

I love adding delicious meals into the healthy eating rotation. I couldn’t believe how incredible this was. The glaze over the chicken was fantastic! So sticky and the honey lemon ginger all complemented each other perfectly. So full of flavor and SO delicious! I know you will love it too!

Classic Macaroni Salad That’s to Die For

Macaroni salad is one of those things that I haven’t always appreciated. I would always walk right past pasta salads and potato salads and now I absolutely love both of them! They are perfect for parties/potlucks, picnics, and of course they are a wonderful side dish for lunch or dinner.

This recipe is my favorite, it’s nothing super fancy it’s just that delicious comfort food you remember growing up with. I added the mix-ins I like but you can swap the ones I have here with different vegetables like cucumbers or (seeded) tomatoes. You could also add in a diced baby dill pickles or sweet pickle relish if that’s your thing.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. dry elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup Hellmann’s or Best Foods Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup fat free or low fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 steamed or hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley

Directions

Cook macaroni in salted water according to directions on package (I added about 1/2 tbsp salt to the water). Drain and rinse with cold water until completely cool. Let drain very well.

In a medium mixing bowl stir together mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, vinegar, mustard, honey, and season with salt and pepper to taste (start with about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper then add more salt after you’ve added the dressing to the pasta. If you cooked the pasta if fairly salty water you won’t want to overdue it).

Add well drained macaroni to a large mixing bowl along with eggs, bell pepper, carrots, celery and onion (if you like to have some color over you salad I like set aside some of the veggies to sprinkle over the top). Pour dressing over top, add in parsley and toss mixture to evenly coat. Serve or store in refrigerator up to 1 day.

We all have asked ourselves this question. Why isn’t my makeup lasting all day?

We all have wondered from time to time why our face only looks flawless with the makeup we spent so much time doing for a few hours during the day, right. Well, makeup does not just magically disappear from our face. There are things you are probably doing that are also cooperating with this. In this article, I want to show you all the things you are doing that actually are working against you instead of in favor of you when it comes to your makeup so that once you pinpoint if you are doing any of these things, you can stop doing them now to keep your makeup looking as flawless as ever!

Keep your fingers off your face

 

This one is pretty obvious and yet, we keep repeating that mistake. You need to avoid touching your face at all costs if you want to keep your face looking as flawless as it can be. I know your face may itch throughout the day but try to avoid touching your face on a constant basis, only do it if it’s absolutely necessary or else, all that time you took doing your makeup was actually wasted.

You are using makeup foundations that are actually not being that beneficial for you!

I know finding the right foundation is so hard for so many girls but believe me, it is worth the effort. So, don’t just take your time finding the best lip liner there is but also, take your time in finding the foundation that actually works the best for your type of skin as this will also help you in making your makeup last longer on your face.

There is such a thing as TOO MUCH makeup

Just because you apply a ton of makeup it does not mean this will make your makeup last longer throughout the day. What you need to do is find the makeup products that works best for your type of skin and this will surely make your makeup last a whole lot longer than it would if you just choose to go down the road of applying heavy makeup.

OREO COOKIE POPCORN THAT’S TO DIE FOR

Oreo Cookies are THE most popular store-bought cookie in America. That is pretty impressive for a cookie that first came on the market over a hundred years ago in 1912. But maybe not surprising since Oreo Cookies are a very yummy guilty pleasure! Not we are adding this bad boy in some popcorn!

 

HOW TO MAKE OREO COOKIE POPCORN

You will need:

  • 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
  • 3 tbsp. Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
  • 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • Mini Oreo Cookies

 

Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels. You don’t want to bite down on one of those! We pop our popcorn on the stove but you can use air-popped or microwave. Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally. It is so nice to taste the salty with the sweet marshmallow coating. Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.

To make the Marshmallow Mixture for the Oreo Cookie Popcorn, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted. Turn off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.

For our Oreo Cookie Popcorn we bought a bag of Oreo Minis. Break apart some of the Mini Oreos, we used about a cup of Oreo pieces in our popcorn. We did it by hand and broke each cookie into 2 or 3 pieces. We didn’t want a lot of cookie dust mixed in our popcorn so that is why we didn’t use a rolling pin or a food processor.

Toss the Oreo pieces in with the popcorn. Slowly pour the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and the Oreo Cookie pieces. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered.

The amount of marshmallow mixture you want to add is really up to your own taste. The more you add, the stickier the popcorn will be so we suggest that you add it a bit at a time, stir the popcorn and give it a taste before you add more.

Now it is time to add a few more whole Mini Oreo cookies. Don’t wait too long after you pour the popcorn onto the cookie sheet. You want the marshmallow mixture to still be warm and sticky. Toss the whole Mini Oreo cookies onto the popcorn. Allow the Oreo Cookie Popcorn to cool. Break apart into pieces and serve. And voilá!

 

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE AVOCADO COOKIES

My boyfriend thinks it’s wrong. I like to think I’m eating a little healthier, but maybe that’s just an excuse to eat more dessert. I’ve tried a lot of different dessert recipes that have vegetables and chocolate in them; brownies with spinach, cupcakes with zucchini, chocolate cake with squash. They were all OK. These Double Chocolate Avocado Cookies are the real deal.

I make these cookies when I want a healthy indulgence, if there is such a thing. Gluten-free and paleo, these are great for almost any diet.

The trick to make these look smooth and round is a DIY pastry bag. I tried it without and they look really funny, but if you are in a hurry it doesn’t taste any different without one. Now, let’s begin with the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Ripe Avocado
  • 3 tbs Honey, Agave, or Stevia
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup Chocolate Chips (Cacao chips)

 

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment. Cream together the avocado and sweetener until smooth. Then add the egg and mix until no lumps remain. Next add the peanut butter and slowly add the Cocoa Powder 2 tbs at a time. If the mixture looks too sticky, leave 1 or 2 tbs out. You want the consistency to be smooth just like the peanut butter.

Stir in the Chocolate Chips by hand and put the mixture in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut a hole the size of a nickle in one corner and squeeze out 1 inch rounds onto the parchment. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the middle of the cookies look set, not shiny. Makes 12-18 cookies. Store in the refrigerator.

These aren’t too sweet and have a very strong chocolaty taste. The peanut butter flavor almost disappears. I could eat the whole batch by myself, but I wouldn’t be able to stand the sad little faces that peak in the cookie jar only to find crumbs.

How To Increase Your Breast Size Fast And Naturally

Consume Healthy Fats

Healthy fats such as eggs, nuts, avocados, fish, etc. help in increasing the size of your breasts. They are also good for your health.

 

Opt For Herbal Treatments

There are various well-known herbal methods that help in increasing the breast size. Here are a few of them:

1. Fennel Seeds: Fennel seeds are rich in flavonoids and they help in enhancing the growth of the breast tissues.

2. Saw Palmetto: The excess production of testosterone in the body prevents the development of breasts. Consuming saw palmetto can stimulate the growth of breasts and increase their size.

3. Fenugreek: It helps in stimulating the production of prolactin, and this helps in increasing the size of the breasts.

 

Swinging Arms

To do this, stand straight with your arms by your side. Now, start swinging your arms in the clockwise direction for 10 times. Take a break for 10-15 seconds and then start swinging your arms in the anticlockwise direction. Do this for 15 minutes a day, and you will see an increase in your breast size within a short span of time.

 

Some Household Chores Can Also Help In Increasing The Bust Size

Ditching those electronic devices and doing some household chores on your own can also help increase your breast size. One such example is grinding that involves a lot of arm movements.

 

Wall Press

To do a wall press, stand against a wall and place your palm on the wall. Start pushing your body against the wall without bending your elbows. Do it for 10 seconds and then take a break. Repeat the same 20 times a day.

 

Eat Foods That Are Rich In Estrogen

The size of your breasts depends on the presence of certain hormones in your body. If the estrogen level in your body is less, the development of breasts is retarded. Thus, to overcome this, you need to eat foods that are rich in estrogen. Some of the best sources of estrogen are fruits, legumes, flax seeds, soup of chicken head, etc.

What should I be doing if I ever see someone unresponsive lying on the floor?

This is a kind of emergency we can all be face with at one point in life. I really consider that the CPR maneuver is something everyone should know as you never know when you may be faced witch an emergency in which you will need to resort to this technique. Now, you don’t need to be a doctor to be familiar with the technique involved in CPR, you just need to make your research and hope you never have to put this to practice. But, if you are ever in an accident where someone is choking, then you will know how to do it but, before performing CPR, here are the steps you should be taking beforehand.

The first thing you should do before performing CPR is, analyze the scene!

 

Look around to have a better understanding and what brought the person being currently faced with an emergency there in the first place. If your surroundings are involving things that may also put you at risk, you need to make sure you are removing the person in the emergency as well as yourself from the area of risks.

 

Now, see if you are getting an answer from the person being faced with the emergency

You need to see if the current victim is being responsive and you can go from there. If you talk to him or her and get no replies from the victim, try shaking it or tapping him or her on the shoulder to check for a response from the patient. If this is not achieved, then you can make the conclusion that the patient is not being responsive.

 

Now, if your victim is not responding, this is what you should be doing

Now, you are obviously going to try to help the victim by performing CPR but also, another way to help is by calling 911 so that they can assist the patient in a more professional way than you may be able to do so. Now, when you call 911, you will probably be instructed on what to do to help the patient based on what you tell the dispatcher what is happening so, don’t try to be a hero and follow their instructions.
