Ingredients

(Makes 1 dozen balls)

Dry Ingredients

1 cup almond flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Pinch himalayan or sea salt

1/4-1/3 cup raisins

1/4 cup walnuts or pecans (optional)

Wet Ingredients

1/4 cup almond butter (or any nut butter)

2 tbsp unrefined coconut oil

2 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or maple syrup or raw honey)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp non-dairy milk (try almond milk, or coconut milk works great too!)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all dry ingredients in a medium- to large-sized bowl.

Mix wet ingredients separately, then combine with dry ingredients. You’re going to want a sticky, thick batter. Roll into balls or whatever shapes tickle your fancy and place on parchment paper (or your own tin foil/degreaser combo).

Place cookie sheet into oven and bake for 10 minutes. Bottoms will be golden brown, tops may start to crack. You’ll probably want to feast as soon as possible, but they may be a tad crumbly when hot. Once they cool, you’re good to go. Store in air-tight container in fridge.

Yo-Yo Dieting: Avoid the Ups and Downs

September16

YoYoDieting

Featured article from Dr. Oz’s website view original

Though losing weight has many positive health benefits, could the rapid weight cycling of yo-yo dieting be harmful to your health in the long run?

You’ve seen many people do it: celebrities, friends, relatives. Yo-yo dieting, also known as weight cycling, refers to the repeated loss and regain of body weight, which can vary from 5-10 pounds to more than 50 pounds. This can occur over a period of several months to several years and can be harmful for your heart and your health.

Why Is Yo-Yo Dieting Dangerous?
Research shows it’s better for your health not to diet at all than to say you’re dieting and steal spoonfuls of crème brûlée during every commercial break. That’s because diets typically promote weight cycling and yo-yo dieting, which is actually more hazardous to your health than keeping a steady overweight weight. Most weight cyclers eventually gain back more weight than they had initially lost because the shame and stress involved with gaining weight can lead to eating more.

Weight cycling may also have negative psychological and behavioral consequences; studies have reported increased risk for mental distress, life dissatisfaction, and binge eating. Some studies have shown that extreme weight cycling can even damage the heart.

One study found that women who were weight cyclers – especially if it occurred five or more times during their life  had a great risk of heart disease beginning shortly after menopause. The researchers believe that the link between weight cycling and heart disease involves the cells that line the blood vessels called endothelial cells. When people gain and lose weight repeatedly, these cells become damaged so blood can’t flow freely. When blood flow to the heart becomes restricted, the stage is set for heart attack and stroke.

Diets and the Power of the Mind

When most of us try to lose weight, we pull out the most powerful weapon we’d like to think we have – our brains and launch a psychological attack on food. However, the truth is that there are very strong emotional triggers that make us eat and can make most diets fail. Researchers theorize that overeating may act like a drug addiction and trigger the reward centers in our brain. Hence, at points of stress, your brain’s neurons may be programmed to combat the stress with food.

Some dieters psychologically treat diets as an all-or-nothing ordeal. Once they deviateeven slightly from a diet or healthy eating plan, they figure they might as well drop the whole thing. This starts a cycle of weight gain and weight loss that’s hard to escape: We’re fat. We try to lose weight. We deviate just a little. We fear rejection for the perceived failure. We isolate ourselves from people. We stop talking about it. We mow through a pound of cheesecake, and we get fat again. The cycle continues.

What Should I Do About It?
If you’re a yo-yo dieter and consistently struggle with weight, keep trying. Don’t give up. Trying to achieve a lower weight and reaping the potential health benefits from diet and exercise outweigh the possible risks of weight cycling. However, the trick is to avoid weight cycling altogether and lose weight for good. Here are some tips to accomplish that:

  • Lose Weight Gradually: The best way to lose weight and keep it off is through a gradual, consistent loss of weight of around two pounds per week. Not only does it help keep the weight off, it’s healthier for you.
  • Diet Just for You: One crux to dieting involves the societal disdain for obesity. Many yo-yo dieters stop dieting after many attempts in order to avoid the shame of failure. They calculate that it’s better to not be on a diet and be overweight than to be on a diet and eventually prove to the world that they can’t succeed.
  • Be Positive: If you blame yourself for your weight, if you are depressed about your weight, or if your mood is low because of your weight, then your first job is to refocus. You’ll need to think about what you can do, how you can do it, why it’s good for you, and how you’ll succeed.
  • Add Some Support: Develop a support system of people who know your goals, know your weaknesses, and know your strengths. You can even find support buddies online. This person will be your sounding board, your comfort system and your measure of accountability. With a positive support system, you’re more likely to make a permanent change.

Balanced Eating to Burn Fat

September13

Balanced Eating to Burn Fat

Together, a high fiber carbohydrate and a low fat protein food create a balanced meal—one that keeps you feeling satisfied and sustained.

Think of carbohydrates as your fuel source, since your brain and muscles’ main source of energy is glucose (carbohydrates). When you don’t get enough carbohydrates, the protein you eat is converted into glucose through a very inefficient process that requires a lot of water, making you feel dehydrated and minimizing the protein available to build muscle mass! So, in the long run, if you’re carbohydrate-deficient, your metabolism slows down, causing you to feel lethargic and experience muscle fatigue. That means your body is not in an optimal fat-burning state!

Carbohydrates are essential to the complete burning of fat. Without carbohydrates, your body cannot burn fat properly. (A potential side effect from this incomplete breakdown of fat is the production of ketones, which are poisonous acidic chemicals that could increase your risk of kidney stones, calcium loss, and osteoporosis.)

When you choose a carbohydrate food, go for a high fiber option, such as the edible skin or edible seeds of fruit, whole grains (e.g. brown rice, sprouted grain bread, oatmeal, millet, and barley), or high fiber starchy vegetables (e.g. green peas, butternut squash, artichokes, lima beans, sugar snap peas, yams, and quinoa).

Fiber is also key to a balanced diet because it helps slow your absorption of the sugar in the carbohydrate food. Fiber helps stabilize your sugar levels, preventing that sugar rush that you typically get from a low-fiber carb like white rice, white bread, white potatoes, juice, mangos, or bananas. You can balance out the lack of fiber in these foods by eating them with green leafy vegetables, nuts or seeds.

How do you put it together? Eat the high fiber carbohydrate first, since that’s your energy fuel. Then eat the protein at the same time or within 2 hours of eating your carb food. Since carbs are digested more quickly (within 1 to 3 hours) compared to protein (within 4 to 6 hours), the included protein is needed to help slow your digestion and keep you feeling satisfied and energized. Eating this way helps you feel fuller for longer and nourishes your muscle growth, so that your body can be a more effective calorie burning machine. If you eat the right way (and incorporate weight/resistant training into your exercise routine), you can burn calories even while you sleep!

The balanced eating principle—high-fiber carbs plus low fat protein—also applies to snacking. Examples of balanced snacks: An apple with a 1/4 cup of nuts and seeds; a slice of sprouted grain toast with a melted slice of organic cheese, romaine lettuce and sliced tomatoes; a cup of organic blueberries stirred into 5 ounces of low fat Greek yogurt.

Ingredients


Arugula Salad

1 1/2 cups baby arugula

1 tbsp shaved parmesan

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

A pinch of sea salt

A slight squeeze of lemon juice

Beer-Basted Organic Chicken and Potatoes

1 whole organic chicken

1 tbsp butter

1 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp pepper

5 cloves of garlic

1/2 lb baby potatoes

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 can of beer

A pinch of sea salt

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

Marinate the chicken in butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Separately, toss the potatoes in olive oil and sea salt.

Place the potatoes on the bottom of a baking dish with the chicken on top. Pour half the can of beer over the chicken and place it in the oven.

Pour the rest of the beer over the chicken as it cooks. Depending on its size, the chicken will take 1-1 1/2 hours. It should be brown and crispy when it’s done.

As the chicken cooks, toss together the arugula, parmesan, olive oil and lemon juice.
