Benefits of magnesium

I have a lot to do today! Classes, interviews, rowing, and the usual work and errands.
I’m usually pretty easy going and I go with the flow.  But today II think I need a little extra help.
Did you know that nearly 50% of the US population is deficient in magnesium?
Did you know that low magnesium means you don’t absorb Vitamin D as well?

Those are just two of the reasons why we all need Magnesium.
You know how when you feel stressed, your muscles become tense? This is because your nervous system releases hormones and then your heart pounds faster, along with faster breathing patterns. Magnesium relieves muscle tension, which has a dramatic impact on the level of stress you feel. As an asthmatic, magnesium helps reduce asthma symptoms and helps to keep attacks at bay. Another benefit of magnesium is that it helps with calcium absorption.

How do I easily add magnesium to my diet? I discovered  this yummy product called Melaout, I just mix it with water and have a glass, This fun drink is like taking a deep breath and then letting it out slowly to relax, Then I will do all the things that need to be done today! Cheers.

Junk food promotes hunger and overeating

Sugar-rich diets generate excessive reward signals in your brain that can override normal self-control mechanisms and lead to addiction and overeating.
Research found a single week of bingeing on fast foods impaired appetite control, making the volunteers more likely to desire more junk food, even if they’d just eaten.

The Better-for-You Snack

Blueberry Vanilla Nut & Fruit Clusters
OMG! More blueberry goodness! Bite after bite, I find Simply Fit Nut & Fruit Clusters simply delicious snacking—and simply better for me. A satisfying, nutty crunch with the soft sweetness of just-picked blueberries, warm hints of vanilla, and sparkles of Himalayan pink salt. 

The clusters contain ten irresistible ingredients: blueberries, currants, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, Himalayan pink salt, crisp rice, cane sugar, brown rice syrup, natural vanilla and no artificial anything! The only proble I’ve found is once I start, I can’t stop eating them!

Yay! Créme Brûlée

Do you like créme brûlée? The earliest known reference of créme brûlée, as we know it today, appears in Francois Massialot’s 1691 cookbook.

Créme brûlée is also known as burnt cream, crema Catalana, and Trinity creme.  It is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a contrasting layer of hard caramel and served at room temperature.
I love this delicious creamy dessert, but hate the calories and sugar it adds to my diet.
I discovered I can have the decadent flavors of créme brûlée whenever I want with GC Control.

GC Control Créme Brûlée is a one-of-a-kind, low-sugar, delicious shake that’s specially formulated to put me in control of my junk food cravings, energy levels, and weight management efforts.
It’s so good, that not only do I drink it as a shake during the day for a quick snack, but I have been known to use it with a bit of water and egg to make delicious, pancakes, waffles and tasty muffins in a mug for breakfast. In the evenings, after dinner, I will add a bit of the shake to my coffee for a decadent coffee treat. It is amazingly delicious and good for me too!
Another great find for keeping me healthy!

Blueberry Cobbler, anyone?

FiberWise® Blueberry Cobbler Bar, that is

For me, a great-tasting bar is an easy, quick and favorite way to get my fiber. Made with full FiberWise goodness, FiberWise Bars are simply scrumptious. Each bar gives me 10 grams of fiber and is bursting with tasty whole grains, real fruit, and only natural flavors, colors and sweeteners.

Blueberry Cobbler FiberWise contains a unique blend of natural fiber sources along with vitamins, antioxidants, soothing herbs, and probiotics that give me a broad spectrum of full-body benefits, and it makes me feel fuller. I never realized that fiber has no calories, so filling up on high-fiber foods crowds out less-healthy foods. When I feel full it’s easier to say no to extra snacks, bigger portions and second helpings.

I find FiberWise Bars are enjoyable at breakfast or any time I want a healthy tasty snack. They are portable so they can go anywhere I go, and leave me feeling satisfied. There are four  varieties from which to choose, but since it’s blueberry month, I’m sticking with blueberry cobbler. blueberry cobbler.

Blueberry power to attain my goals

This is a healthy snacking secret. When I want something delicious, filling and refreshing for my 3:00 p.m. snack, I reach for Blueberry Attain with revolutionary, natural CraveBlocker®. This simple shake helps stop cravings at both critical sources, putting me back in control. I have been able to manage and lose weight without feeling irritable or hungry all the time—and I don’t deprive myself of the nutrition I need. Controlling my cravings is an essential part of losingand keeping  weight off for good. Since it is blueberry month, I blended in a few fresh blueberrys for an added jolt of antioxidants.

Blueberry breakfast special

My Blueberry breakfast special is Blueberry Simply Fit Granola.

We like it because it is simply wholesome granola. There is no artificial flavoring, color or ingredients. It’s baked and every bite is filled with crisp, old-fashioned goodness. It has whole oats, fiber, protein, and ALA omega-3s from flax to create lasting satisfaction. We love it we even added a few fresh berries today to celebrate blueberry month!

up to 380mg ALA Omega-3 from flax, up to 34g whole grains, 5g fiber, 5g protein

My Daily Detox

I never give this tub of berry goodness enough credit. It’s basically my daily detox.
It’s fiber, you know, the body’s natural trash collector. Did you know that 85% of your immune system lives in your gut? Yep. That means both good bacteria and bad bacteria live within your digestive system. If that bacteria balance gets out of whack—like Goldilocks finding the “just right” porridge — an out of balance system can cause a whole slew of health issues. So much so, that researchers call the gut “our second brain.” 

Irregularity, constipation, bloating, autoimmune disorders, food allergies/intolerance, leaky gut syndrome, acid reflux, joint pain, skin sensitivities, fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, etc.—all of these— can be linked back to your gut health. 

For me, Fiberwise helps with my weight loss journey and to keep my mental health in check too! When you physically feel better, your mental health follows!
