Have a happy day, see some nice pictures!

We often let little things like looking at some nice pictures,get forgotten when they are the best thing to boost our feelings and get rid of the blues. I am going to share a few of my favorites with you and hope they made you smile! And while you are looking at the pictures sing with me, "Smile awhile and chase your cares away, smile awhile and chase the blues away,"

Feel Terrific for New Years Eve - Do This!

Want to feel terrific for New Years Eve? You sure do and I can tell you how to do this. When we dress up and put on something that sparkles we begin to shine deep in our being and we feel great, laugh more, talk more and generally have a nice time. I like to feel great everyday and so I get up, get dressed and put on some Jewellery. It is the best medicine for a sleepy and blah morning. This was something I learned long ago that you can function better when you look your best. Don't think you can't do this if you don't have really good clothes or expensive jewellery because you can look great in a $1.00 necklace or pair of earrings from the dollar store or a $1,000.00 pair of earrings from the Jeweller. A T-shirt and pair of jeans and long dangly earrings, looks great and you will sail through your day feeling like a Million Dollar Babe. I know where you can get fabulous jewellery and the price is so reasonable and it all looks like it cost hundreds of dollars. Super Quality and pieces that suit everyone from plain to super fancy.

I can recommend clicking on the jewellery link I have posted.

Healing with Mangosteen Juice

Have you ever heard of a Xanthone? This is probably the most potent antioxidant you have ever heard of. It comes from the tropical forests of South East Asia, and is called a Mangosteen,a fruit very rich in flavor. It is known in South East Asia as a super fruit and people there have long known of its great antioxidant properties. No other fruit is known to have such a high ranking of super antioxidants called a Xanthone, of which it has over 40, most of which are found in the outer covering. These Xanthones are a group of compounds that protect your cells from free radicals, toxins, support our immune systems, fight inflammation in many diseases, and helps balance the bodies intestinal system and reduce allergies. I use this product every day and love it and how it makes me feel.
One day I burnt myself and I thought if its so good I will put some on my burn, so I put some of the juice on a piece of kleenex and slapped it on my burn, it kind of stung for a minute and then it stopped paining and in the morning I could hardly see where I had burnt myself. So now we use it for sores, mosquito bites,poltices, give it to the dog, and drink about 1 to 2 ounces per day. I wish we had discovered this many years ago. My hat is off to the young men who found this fruit, built a company called Xango and brought it to us in its purest form. Straight fruit ground up and bottled, no water and no sugar. If you are suffering and want to learn more about it you are welcome to contact me. A friend of ours had gout really bad and his toe was so swollen he could hardly walk for the pain. We gave him some of the juice and after 2 or 3 days he called and could not believe the results, his toe was pain free and no longer swollen, his Doctor was very impressed as well. Guess what he drinks it now and loves it too.

This is the 3rd of 3 Proven Flat Belly Foods from an article in Prevention Magazine. I know we all want a flat belly and now is the time to really think about how we can accomplish this.
PROTEIN: It doesn't just build muscle, it fights belly fat too. Korean researchers found that adults eating more protein lost about 2 more pounds of belly fat than those who ate less protein and more carbs, aim for about 25% of your calories from protein - that's 100g if you eat 1,600 calories a day. Protein also helps you feel more satisfied, so include some of these lean protein packed foods at each meal.
Cottage cheese (1/2C)= 14g protein Soybeans (1 C)= 22g protein
Brown Rice and Beans (1 C)= 26g Protein Eggs (2) = 14g Protein
Tuna (22g) = 22g Protein Beef Tenderloin (3 oz( = 23g Protein
Fat Free Milk (1C) = 8g Protein Lentil Soup (1C) = 18g Protein
Chicken Breast,skinless (3oz)= 10g Protein Fat free Yogurt (6oz)= 7g Protein
Veggie Burger (1) = 11g Protein Quinoa (1C) = 8g Protein

2nd of 3 Proven Flat Belly Foods

Further to my blog on Stress and Belly fat, from Prevention Magazine, here is the second of 3 Proven Flat Belly Foods that they recommend.
NUTS: Apparently Research from the City of Hope National Center in Duarte, Ca. found that dieters who ate a few ounces of almonds a day downsized their waistlines by about 6 1/2 inches in 24 weeks - nearly 50% more than those who ate the same number of calories without the nuts. Scientists speculate that the nut eaters benefited from additional fiber. Just keep your portions to a handful - about a 1-once serving - because they are high in calories. Also note that Almonds provide Vitamin E, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Iron, Fiber and Monounsaturated fat. They contain more Calcium than any other nut. Almonds are considered good for the heart, and prevention of Cancer and could lengthen your life.
It's a nice idea to have a little bowl of Almonds on the table, over Christmas Holidays or any time, for your guests to nibble on. You will feel good that you contributed to their health in some small way.
Almonds 20-24 whole = 160 calories Brazil Nuts 6-8 = 190 calories
Cashews 16-18 = 160 calories Hazelnuts 18-20 = 180 calories
Macadamias 10-12 = 200 calories Peanuts 28 = 170 calories
Pecans 18-20 halves= 200 calories Pine Nuts 150-157 = 160 calories
Pistachios 45-47 = 160 calories Walnuts 14 halves = 190 calories
