It was late, and I was in town alone after seeing Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and, as well as being elated and raw with emotion, I was suddenly starving. That panicky kind of hunger where it’s dangerous to go into Tesco because you know you’ll leave with a bag for life swollen with Nik Naks and coffee drinks and yesterday’s sushi, then still need some toast when you get in. And then I remembered burgers.
Using the peanut paste, you can smear it on apples, bananas, or rice crackers. You can also replace the peanut butter in your favourite Thai noodle sauce with PB2, or use it in its powdered form in baked goods. If you go the baked goods route, make sure to swap out about ¼ of flour the recipe calls for since you’ll be adding extra powder with the PB2.

What else? There is never ‘guilt’ as an ingredient. I promise. Go check the back of your favorite “guilty” food, it won’t be listed. When we label foods as ‘guilt free’ it makes it seem like we should feel guilt about foods that aren’t labeled guilt free. Yikes. What’s really happening is that the labeling of this product is using basic psychology and marketing principles to make you buy their product - but it’s also changing how you feelings and thoughts about food.
Perfect for a summer day or after a meal, these popsicle sticks are effortlessly amazing. Made with only three ingredients and endless possibilities, they are bound to become one of your favorite go-to snacks. With these sweet treats, there is the option to leave out the chocolate chips, and we suggest to add in some chia seeds or a fruit of your choice.

Juicy, refreshing watermelon, soft goat cheese, and crunchy bacon. A combo we are big fans of! Goat cheese is lower in calories and fat than cheese from a cow’s milk. Many people want to cut the dairy out of their diets, but research says that dairy plays an important role in the brain’s function. So, basically, this snack will make you a genius. There is also high calcium levels in goat cheese that contribute to the strength of your bones and can even prevent migraine headaches.

New information on treatments for both medical skin conditions and cosmetic problems is available in the Special Health Report Skin Care and Repair. This report describes scientifically approved treatments for common medical conditions from acne to rosacea, as well as the newest cosmetic procedures for lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other problems. An explanation of the ingredients in popular skin lotions and cosmeceuticals is also included.  


Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When a spritz of water causes the skillet to sizzle, working in batches and respraying between each batch, mist the skillet with spray and pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the skillet. Cook until there are bubbles on the top and the bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip each pancake and cook until lightly golden brown on the bottom, about another 2 minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to an ovenproof plate, cover with foil, and keep them warm in the oven until they are all cooked. Serve immediately with 1 teaspoon maple syrup or 11/2 teaspoons marmalade per pancake. Garnish with raspberries, if desired.

Chia seeds are a superfood known to satisfy hunger with a low-calorie count. Does it get any better than that? Actually, yes. They’re also filled with fiber and loaded with antioxidants, so why not add some chocolate and pumpkin to amp up this tiny nutrient-packed food to make it your afternoon snack. You could even swap out the milk and replace it with a nut milk if you’re looking to cut back on the dairy.

For all you dip lovers out there, here’s your next favorite snack perfect for dipping fruit and veggies in! Swap the chocolate chips out for a more natural form, cacao nibs, and use plain greek yogurt instead for an added source of protein, a lower carb intake, and less sugar. Get your dippers ready because this treat is something you won’t stop coming back to!
This variation is most often used in medical settings. Often, the dieter will start this variation with a three day fast. The RKD is the most effective keto diet for fighting against cancer. A 2010 study showed that a patient with a form of brain cancer had no signs of mutated brain tissue after two months on this diet. Medical professionals will not only monitor caloric intake, carbs, and ketosis, but specific ketone levels will need to be achieved.
If it wasn’t supposed to be pleasurable, why do we have taste buds? Oh, right, because pleasurable foods tell our brains that we enjoy this thing. Also, it’s how we learn nutrition, our brains learn the outcome of ingesting different nutrients and then triggers cravings for things that will replenish those deficiencies. Yes, there are the sweet tooth cravings and such, but fundamentally, we learn to eat due to pleasurable responses TO what we eat.
If junk foods are “bad,” it’s human nature to try to make them good so we can continue to enjoy them without remorse. That’s where the whole guilt-free movement comes from — it’s supposed to give us permission to indulge. But it’s based on lies. The reality is that no magic wand can turn sugar and trans fat into health food, and it shouldn’t have to. It’s okay to have a treat once in a while.
Any time I see a club sandwich, I think of my mother. When I was a kid, my mom always ordered them, while I ordered chicken parmesan sandwiches wherever we were. At the time, I never got the appeal of a club-why would one eat turkey, when you could be eating something fried and dripping with cheese? Now I love them. Back then, I found it fascinating that my mother could eat just one or two quarters as her entire meal. These days, I often eat just two quarters, but I always eat them with a small salad or follow them with a piece of fruit or some On-the-Terrace FruIt'salad (page 222). 5 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Just before the bacon is cooked, toast the bread slices until lightly toasted on both sides. Then place them side by side on a clean work surface. Spread 1'/2 teaspoons mayonnaise on the first and third slices of bread. Place the lettuce and then the tomato on the first slice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top evenly with half of the turkey. Top that with the bare slice of bread. Add the remaining turkey, followed by the bacon. Place the remaining slice of bread atop the sandwich. Secure the sandwich layers together by piercing them through the top bread slice with 4 decorative toothpicks placed in a diamond pattern so they go all of the way through the sandwich. Use a serrated knife to cut the sandwich diagonally into 4 triangles (a toothpick should be securing each quarter). Serve immediately.
