Hi again! You know me; I've been reading again... I just read that a spoonful of cooked black rice packs the same amount of anthocyanins as a spoonful of fresh blueberries, but with less sugar and more fiber and vitamin E. I'm not sure that rice is a fruit substitute in that case though; I'll have to give that some food for thought! I'm waiting impatiently for the spring sunshine to come; I know it's out there somewhere, it just hasn't broke through our continual thick cloud cover yet.
I hope you are getting some nice weather where you are! Take care and have a wonderful weekend! Dusty
It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!
My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.
Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?
I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.
Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on! Dusty
