What Are You Snacking On?

Today’s Topic:

What is Your Favorite Between Meal Snack?

Snacking gives us the chance to fuel our body between meals. And, healthy snacks can help rev metabolism and keep hunger at bay.  As a plus, if the right snacks are eaten, we have the added benefit of extra vitamins and minerals.  Here are some of my favorite snacks.

What are yours?

Nuts: Such as cashews, walnuts, and almonds are a crunchy way to add more protein and healthy unsaturated fat to your diet. If eaten in moderation, they add a host of healthy nutrients as well. Most nuts contain about 6 grams of protein per 2-ounce serving., along with a host of important vitamins and minerals.  Personally, I love walnuts. With only 4 grams of carbs per ounce, walnuts give me quick on-the-go energy and help starve off hunger.  Best of all, they give me a hefty dose of mega-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

As a tip, when purchasing nuts, opt for salt-free to keep your sodium intake in check. As an option to salted nuts, purchase the unsalted nuts and bake them in a low temperature oven on a sheet pan. Sprinkle with spices such as cinnamon or chipotle pepper or whatever spice you prefer. Once cooled, store these little goodies in small ziplock bags in the freezer for ready-to-eat-on-the go treats.  If you prefer a bit of salt, sprinkle the nuts lightly prior to baking. Pre-packaged, salted nuts are often over loaded with salt and sometimes preservatives.

Frozen Grapes: My granddaughters taught me about the goodness of frozen grapes. They are, indeed, a delicious and satisfying little tasty sweet treat. These subzero little poppers provide a surprising burst of flavor in your mouth that can help quell afternoon sugar cravings. Frozen grapes stay soft and creamy on the inside, so they make the perfect snack. Additionally, I keep frozen green grapes in the freezer to flop into green smoothies. To freeze grapes, wash them and spread whole grapes in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze.  Pop them off the tray and store in ziplock bags in the freezer.

Bananas: These golden babies are a naturally prepackaged sweet you can take anywhere. And, bananas have the added benefit of cramp-preventing potassium. I personally enjoy eating a banana most days and love the nutritional boost. Bananas, like most fruits, are not only a nutritious snack to eat between meals, but they are as delicious as grapes are in smoothies.

If you are a Young Living members, you probably already enjoy Slique® Bars as a safe, delicious weight-management snack that utilizes a dual-target approach to help manage satiety. Now this innovative bar is coated in delicious dark chocolate! Yum.

Young Living also uses a potato skin extract that, when ingested, triggers the release of cholecystokinin in the body, increasing the duration of feelings of fullness. *

This dual-target satiety approach and medley of exotic fruits, nuts, and potato skin extract create a nutritious, stimulant-free snack to help you feel fuller, longer.

• High in fiber

Who Should Use the Chocolate-coated Slique Bar?
• Individuals interested in an innovative tool to assist as part of a weight-management program
• Individuals interested in adding fiber to their diet

Consume before or between meals with 12 oz. of water to help manage hunger. As with any weight-loss product, this formula is designed and intended for use with a sensible program of diet and exercise. Individuals who may be sensitive to high-fiber diets should exercise care when consuming more than 2 bars daily. I limit my intake to 1 bar. Please consult a health professional prior to beginning any diet or exercise regimen.

The History of Thieves

Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical account of four thieves in Frace who protected themselves from the Black Plague with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing victims of the killer disease.  When captured, they were offered a lighter entence in exchange for their secret recipe.  Young Living’s proprietary Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalptus radiata and has been specialy blended to offer the same kind of defense.  Thieves has been university tested and found to be highly effective against airborne bacteria (Sushil K. Shadi, et al.  “Broad Spectrum Herbal Therapy again Superficial Fungal Infections.”

 

Utilizing the power and protection of Thieves essential oil blend, Young Living created an extensive line of plant-based household products.  From toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products, hand soaps, and even throat lozenges, the Thieves product line provides safe, effective alternatives for use in the home  (Young Living).

The Best Health Secret

 

News from Essential Oil Talk.

I personally love coconut oil, and I use it daily on my skin.  For skin health, I mix a few drops of essential oil such as carrot or lavender and smooth over my skin prior to putting on makeup.  The oil soaks in quickly and does wonders for the skin, and the essential oils add their own healthy boost.  You will find many articles about essential oils and skin care on my website, www.essentialoiltalk.com.

Beyond skin care, coconut oil is an excellent oil to use in cooking, on skin, and on your hair.  When eaten in substantial amounts, coconut oil acts like a health tonic, according to “Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D., who is an author, speaker, and certified nutritionist and naturopathic physician.  Fife states that coconut oil helps by “improving the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the foods that are consumed at the same time the oil is used.  Included in this group are fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K, beta-carotene and CoQ10”.

Coconut oil is a great hair strengthener because it helps build the shaft of each hair.

I like to rub a very tiny amount in my hand and then smooth that over my hair when it feels a tad dry.  This bit of oil does not make my hair greasy, but it does make it softer and more manageable and the split ends all but disappear.  You can also put coconut oil on your scalp to help control dandruff by killing the fungus that causes this condition.   Rub a small amount of coconut oil into the scalp and hair and leave on for an hour or so.  Then  take a soft cloth and wipe out the excess prior to washing your hair to prevent the tub from getting greasy.  Wash your hair with shampoo and rinse thoroughly.  Your hair will be lustrous and shiny after this treatment, and your scalp will be squeaky clean.

Fife and others suggest that coconut oil “creates a protective chemical barrier that helps shield the body from harmful germs.  It contains a special group of germ-fighting fatty acids with antifungal properties that help kill bacteria, viruses and fungi that can cause disease and skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch, toenail fungus and common acne”.

For years Asian people have used coconut oil as medicine for burns, cuts, and other injuries, and millions in the United States have caught on to this miraculous little oil.  Since coconut oil provides some protection from UV rays, it is a good idea to use it even if you follow up with a sunscreen, since the oil itself may provide some extra protection, and you are nourishing your skin with this amazing oil as you have fun in the sun.

I highly recommend you reading Bruce Fife’s book The Coconut Oil Miracle and Coconut Cures: Preventing and Treating Common Health Problems with Coconut. He explains all the benefits of coconut oil, and you can learn why coconut oil’s lauric acid is good for you, and you will learn much more.  I found this book life changing, and you may as well.

I love coconut oil and coconut milk.

I cook with both of these products, and the best stir-fried foods are made with coconut oil.  Give it a try today.  Let me know what you think by posting to my Facebook© Page, Essential Oil Talk, and be sure to visit my website: essentialoiltalk.com and read my other articles and then leave me a comment.  I would love to hear from you and see how you are using coconut oil to improve your health.

Thieves Autoship Pack saves on products you’ll use every day

Now the power of  THIEVES  can be found in over a dozen products, from toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products, hand soaps and even  lozenges.  Over 500 clinical studies prove the effectiveness of  THIEVES essential oil.   Tens of thousands of Young Living customers depend on THIEVES products to get them through the cold and flu season.  Like all Young Living products, THIEVES products are all natural and chemical-free.

Weber  State University, Ogden, Utah has proven that THIEVES essential oil blend is 99.6% effective again airborne bacteria.  THIEVES refers to a band of legendary grave robbers who in the 15th century in France were able to rob victimes of the plaque by rubbing oils of Clove, Rosemary, and Cinnamon over their bodies (Essential Oil Desk Reference).  After researching stories about the grave robbers, Dr. D. Gary Young developed the formula now widely popular with Young Living members.

It is no wonder since hundreds of scientific reports confirm the antimicrobial action of  THIEVES blend essential oil.
