First, eating breakfast helps keep you from snacking. When you skip the first meal, you begin the day hungry. Then, whenever you see food you want to cave in to every temptation that comes your way. The next thing you know, you have eaten more calories than you have ever realized. Breakfast is literally a breaking of your fast. It will curb your appetite for several hours.
All this will obviously help our children perform better at tests, make school a more pleasant, happier experience for them, and set them up for life with good eating and work habits. In my book, this is a pretty good return for making sure they have a properly balanced breakfast every morning.
Replace traditional stuffing with an assortment of chopped vegetables. Fill your turkey with mushrooms, eggplant, onions and celery. Or replace half of your traditional stuffing with chopped vegetables.
If you want to lose 18 pounds in 3 weeks and lose your butt and leg fat, you need to burn more calories than you take in. Simple! You should be able to create a calorie deficit through eating fewer calorie foods and engaging more in physical activities. The bottom line is to eat less and exercise more. But you must eat the right kind of food and engage in the right kind of exercise to get your body back into shape.
Well, maybe. That is if you like your grain plain. The grain we’re talking about is oatmeal. Yes, that bland tasting, cholesterol lowering, heart disease reducing, protein rich grain most commonly found in a round cardboard canister. Whether your oats are rolled, crushed or ground like Irish oatmeal, a little imagination and creativity goes a long way in designing your own favorite and healthy breakfast.
This is a nice alternative to the traditional breakfast of a bowl of cereal for more than one reason. I find myself that I always tend to let my milk spoil when i buy it. I just don’t use it fast enough to beat the expiration date. I also tend never to have time to wash dishes, and hate to continuously waste paper bowls and plastic spoons. Finally, my cereal finds a way of getting stale before I can finish a box. So, the milk and cereal bars are a way to avoid all of these problems!
Jogging is a very effective exercise. Not only does it get your heart pumping and work to tone and define your legs, but it also works your abdominal muscles. When you run, your body tends to automatically tighten the abdominals, so they can benefit from this simple exercise, too. Grab a friend for a daily run or hit the treadmill and set a steady pace that is comfortable for you.
