Cranberry Pistachio Honey Bites (Energy Balls)

Cranberry Pistachio Honey Bites (Energy Balls)

Somehow I will justify my pickings as breakfast and by the time lunch rolls around I’m starving while sitting at my computer editing and wondering why heck I’m hungry, hits me—oh yeah, I forgot to actually eat a real meal so I quickly slap some almond butter on a piece of paleo toast, top it with my favorite fruit and call it a meal. On days that I take off of work and have time to make myself breakfast, I eat the same thing (unless I’m feeling spunky and make myself a large stack of pancakes) and I will without
This garlic roasted broccoli is my favorite! It is so addictive, I could eat it everyday.

Garlic Roasted Broccoli (I Could Eat This Everyday)

I’m a big fan of roasting veggies, especially in the fall. The combination of heat and proper surface area on the pan can turn any vegetable into a savory side dish in no time. At a high heat, the sugars in the vegetable caramelize. When spread out over the pan in an even layer, the broccoli is able to brown properly. This combination makes for a warm, tasty crowd-pleaser. I mean, garlic always helps too. The measurements for this recipe are really more of a guideline. You can add more or less olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt or pepper.
These energy balls are so good!

Cinnamon Banana Bread Energy Balls (ERMAHGERD!)

Today, without fail, I got down to my last banana and of course it was too ripe for my liking. I pondered a bit and considered making a small banana bread loaf but I didn’t feel like I had enough banana to do that. Then I thought I might make some banana pancakes but I also wasn’t hungry enough for a large stack like that (I only eat pancakes when they are piled sky high but that’s another story). I wanted something quick, simple and that would last me a few days. So I decided to make no-bake cinnamon banana

Easy Homemade Sweet Potato Chips- I made these and I will never buy store-bought sweet potato chips ever again! Just pop them in the oven, let them cool & enjoy.

Easy Homemade Sweet Potato Chips (OMG, So Good)

I love using potato chips in that explanation because they really are a perfect example. Normally, they’re absolutely considered off-limits on the paleo diet, for obvious reasons. But when you swap out the white potatoes for sweet potatoes and make your own potato chips from scratch? The resulting chips are so good, you really won’t be missing out. Today I’m going to be sharing a recipe that will teach you exactly how to make super easy homemade sweet potato chips. They couldn’t be easier to make as well, requiring only four simple ingredients and about 30 minutes of your time.

By Leo Babauta I was talking with a client about how he felt constantly behind on his email, Slack and other messages and small tasks. I suggested having regular times to do those things: 15 minutes in the morning and evening each for email and Slack (for a total of 30 minutes, twice a day), for example. He laughed and said, “Leo, I’ve tried that a thousand times and it hasn’t stuck!” I totally get it. We’ve tried to form some powerful habits, and they work for a little bit, until they fall off. But we can always come back. In fact, coming back to a habit might be the most powerful habit of all. Coming back, over and over again, just like we return to the breath, over and over again, after letting our minds wander. It’s the nature of our minds to fall off habits. Sometimes it takes a dozen attempts before it really clicks. Sometimes more. Falling off the habit isn’t a problem — it’s just a part of the experience of shifting patterns. The problem is that we think we should never fall off a habit, and so we let ourselves get discouraged. Think of it ...

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Who can forget the message of Mary Poppins telling us that “…a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Yes, we humans certainly like our sugar. To be sure, added sugar certainly increases our desire to consume a lot more than the “medicine” described in the song. It’s concerning to consider that of the 1.2 million food products sold in America’s grocery stores, approximately 68% have added sweeteners. This represents an active attempt to hack into our primitive desire for sweet and to alter our food choices moving forward. Even more worrisome is the fact that 60% of infants are given foods and beverages that contain added sugar. It is this very early exposure that may significantly influence food preferences for the rest of that child’s lifetime. As Robert T. Murray at the Ohio State University School of Medicine recently wrote in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism¹: During the first years of life, the sweetness of sugars has a capacity to hinder or to help in laying a strong nutritional foundation for food preferences that often extend over a lifetime. Aside ...
Oat milk has a couple of big things going for it as a milk substitute. First of all, it is very mild in flavor and hence, the best tasting (in my opinion), alternative to dairy in lattes and other dishes. Secondly, it tastes mildly sweet without any additional sugar. These two reasons are why I … The post Homemade Oat Milk (Do NOT buy at the store!) appeared first on The Healthy Home Economist. Source ...

You will probably have read about the results of this recent study from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences elsewhere already – hopefully in an article that applied the same rigorous scrutiny as this one. “Wait: EAAs are better than whey?” If that’s your overgeneralized and essentially wrong (there was no comparison of EAA vs. Whey, but one of EAA+whey vs. whey 😎) take-home message from the abstract of a recent study in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition you may have recently read about on Facebook, you better read the rest of today’s SuppVersity article on Park’s paper, of which I would like to point out that the authors come to a very different, accurate, and more nuanced conclusion, that reads as follows: “that a composition of a balanced EAA formulation combined with whey protein is highly anabolic as compared to a whey protein-based recovery product, and that the response is dose-dependent” (Park 2020). Ok, that’s correct and nuanced, but we should be more specific with respect to the real-world implications, and more nuanced when it comes to describing and reflecting on the methodology. A classic SuppVersity ‘On the Other Hand’ (Carl Lanore) if you ...

These Sweet and Spicy Miso Edamame is the go-to snack that has us reaching for more! We’re big fans of finger food, and there’s nothing like a delicious sticky snack worth rolling up your sleeves for. Also, when it comes to snacking sometimes the best things are actually much more simple than they seem. This recipe is a great example of this, easy to make, delicious, and only a few ingredients. The ingredients used in this recipe may not be the most common pantry staples for most but are worth stocking up. Not only do they add big flavor and complexity to dishes, but they also have a long shelf-life when stored correctly. Read your labels For gluten allergies, make sure to use white and red miso that is gluten-free. Red miso frequently contains barley, wheat, and rye, so make sure to check the labels if you have gluten sensitivity. We have personally used Miso Masters Organic miso for years which is gluten-free and perfect for this recipe. Sweet and Spicy Miso Edamame isn’t the only way to get the health benefits from adding miso to your diet. Try adding it to salad dressings, sauces, and glazes. You can even ...

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Without a doubt, one of the most highly debated topics in health and wellness centers on the safety or risk associated with GMO foods. Today, Austin Perlmutter M.D. joins me to interview Jeffrey Smith, who has, for the past two decades, done his best to raise public awareness as to the possible health-related concerns of genetically modifying our foodstuffs. Today he shares some of his most recent revelations from his research into GMO products, as well as the latest information related to the herbicide glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in the commercial product Roundup. There’s a lot of information here, but ultimately it is extremely valuable. The post The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Jeffrey Smith appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D..

By Leo Babauta The truth is, most of us have a pretty adversarial relationship to time. There’s never enough. We’re always behind. It goes by too fast. We can’t do important things because we don’t have enough time. None of it is helpful. Most of it is bullshit. Let’s take the first one: there’s never enough time. This is powerful because there’s some truth to it: time is limited and precious. We will die, and while we don’t know how much time we have left in this life, we do know that it’s limited. It’s helpful to remember that we must make the most of our limited time! But time is also abundant. Think of the past few years — it might seem like they passed really quickly, but actually we had so many hours we can’t can’t them. We had a huge abundance of hours. Maybe we didn’t spend them wisely (I know I misspent quite a few hours), but we had plenty of time. We still do, today and this month and this year. The key is to see this abundance, and feel it in your body. It’s like the abundance of oxygen in the air all around ...
