The daylight savings time change and the dreary weather has led to a slow Monday for me. I am guessing that many of you are feeling the mullygrubs as well. I’m sick of waiting for winter to finally break allowing those bright spring undertones to freshen our moods! In effort to keep things lighthearted today–I have to share my man crush Justin Timberlake’s performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Love it!
However, I felt compelled to share this real life testimonial with you all for anyone who watched the inspiring Dr. Terry Wahl’s TED talk last week. The more research I do, the more patient testimonials I find. This 7 minute video is by a young gal with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis. She shares her progress on her blog and in this you tube video. Eat those veggies! And bring it on down to VEGANVILLE!
Remember the MUFA’s? These are the infamous plant-based oils that are packed with nutrients to keep your skin looking beautiful and youthful. Remember that including them at every meal will help you lose that belly fat. A wonderful way to help incorporate them is to make nut butters. Buy unshelled nuts because they are fresher. If you buy shelled for convenience, choose the natural, salt-free type. Store them in an airtight container and keep them in a cool, dark place.
Nut butters are easy to make and they are better than store-bought types and are totally free of preservatives, salt, and sugar. Place shelled, roasted nuts in a food processor with a spoonful of olive oil. It’s that simple! Voila–you have a great spread–use them on gluten-free breads, in dessert making, to sauté veggies or anywhere you would use regular butter. Store these in the refrigerator and they will last for about a month! Don’t forget, you can always add a little flax-seed or vanilla for flavoring!
