Unlike the previous week, I actually managed to stick to my menu this past week. Not a single thing remains unmade. I’m not being very ambitious with the meals planned for this week, but I do have one new recipe planned for Tuesday.
For those of you who clicked on the picture of a strawberry shortcake to get here, I thought you might like to see the larger version. It was every bit as delicious and satisfying as it looks in the picture. On Friday and then again on Sunday.
Spaghetti and salad
Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter
Soup and salad
Breakfast for dinner or leftovers
Pizza and salad
Please give menu planning a try. It may seem like a chore at first, but it really takes a lot of stress away during the week. Check out the myriad of blogs linked at Ia€?m an Organizing Junkie for more meal inspiration.
Many people wonder how to grow tall. They may think that since they’ve already reached adulthood, that there is nothing they can do to grow taller. This is not necessarily the case. There are a few things adults can do to appear, and to actually become taller.
None of the proven methods of how to grow tall are overnight solutions. It could take a few months or even a year to see results, but to those who are successful, it is well worth the wait. Many people think that taller people seem to be taken more seriously than short people. For this, and other reasons, being “vertically challenged” plagues many people, and can cause self-esteem and confidence issues.
In order to gain inches, and confidence, there are a few things to try. All methods work on the principle of stimulating the release of Human Growth Hormone, or HGH. Ways to grow taller come in a range of tactics, from natural, medicine-free methods, to taking supplements and hormones. Of course, natural methods are the least invasive, and should always be the beginning step in one’s quest for height.
Diet is the first, and perhaps the most fundamental, of the ways how to grow tall. It is both its own method, and an integral part of any of the other ways to grow taller. A diet that is rich in the right vitamins and minerals can stimulate hormones, and is vital for your body to be able to support any additional growth of muscles and bones. Important vitamins include, but are not limited to, A, B-Complex, C, D, E, F, and K. Important minerals include, but also are not limited to, Iron, Calcium, Chromium, and Flouride.
Someone who is trying to grow taller should also have a steady food intake. They should not skip meals. Several small meals a day is ideal. This boosts metabolism and gives the body the extra fuel it needs to grow.
There are also exercises that one must to in order to become taller. They include warm-up exercises, regular exercises, and advanced exercises. Stretching, swimming, sprinting, jump rope, and other exercises that involve a lot of jumping or leg extending, are all good exercises for growth.
There are also some general exercise tips that can help one stimulate growth. When riding a bike, for example, it helps to raise the seat higher, so that legs have to be stretched out further to reach the pedals. It also helps to wear ankle weights while hanging from a bar or doing chin ups. Anything that safely lengthens the body is an ideal form of exercise.
If diet and exercise alone are not enough, there are additional methods to resolve the problem that how can you get taller fast. No program should be started without consulting your doctor, especially if there are other pre-existing health issues. Nor should any growth program be expected to work overnight. Many people have had success growing, but not if they got discouraged and gave up too early.
I cannot tell you how excited I was to see fresh blueberries at the store last night. Yay, that meant that I could have one of my favorite meals today. And here is the recipe:
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon 2% plain Greek yogurt? (doesn’t have to be exact)
1/4 cup of walnuts
It is so scrumptious. I absolutely love it. And this recipe is versatile. Some yummy combos I have tried are fresh peaches with pecans and fresh strawberries with slivered almonds. Both are very tasty but the blueberries remain my favorite. You could add sprinkle of cinnamon or drizzle of honey but you really don’t need it.
Hope you enjoy!!
Can you think of any combos that may be delicious?
)))] ALOELITE — WHOLE LEAF ALOE VERA ENRICHED WITH MANAPOL?
The restorative powers of aloe vera have been a matter of record since 2100 B.C. Many ancient civilizations, especially the Hebrews and Egyptians, believed that the juice of the aloe vera plant was a precious and holy medicine. People all over the world have used the plant –the Chinese called it the “medicine plant,” the Africans called it the “burn plant,” and the Native Americans called it the “miracle plant that heals itself.” The fact that so many cultures have documented their successful use of aloe over the centuries led scientists to extensively research the benefits of aloe.
It is with the knowledge of these ancient civilizations and the results of years of extensive scientific research that Kaire has created AloEliteTM. AloElite is made from the Aloe barbadensis Miller plant, cultivated in Venezuela in virgin soil rich in nutrients. Hundreds of miles from the nearest industrialized city and just a short distance from the ocean shoreline, the aloe fields bask in the sun-shine and clean breeze of the Caribbean.
The whole aloe leaves are processed within three hours of harvesting, thus preserving important enzymes and nutrients. Unlike many aloe products that use only filet portions of the aloe leaf, Kaire uses the whole leaf of the aloe plant. A special proprietary process is used to ensure against the destruction of nutritional compo-nents. This special process enables AloElite to have two to three times more solids than other juices on the market.
Of all the aloe solids that occur naturally in the “miracle plant,” polysaccharides are currently linked to most of aloe’s specific health benefits. Experts agree that polysaccharides contribute to good health, and that their deficiency may produce health problems. Polysaccharides are found in every cell in the body and perform many functions. However, the human body stops manufacturing polysaccharides around puberty, so it is important to supplement your diet with them.’ John C. Pittman, M.D., a practicing doctor and the clinical program director at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, wrote in his article “The Immune Enhancing Effects of Aloe” that the Aloe barbadensis plant contains the greatest concentration of the most active polysaccharides in nature?
Polysaccharides are the most abundant component of aloe’s methyl precipitable solids (MPSs). When aloe solutions are processed, about 20 to 25% of the total solids come out of the solution, precipitate. These precipitated solids are known as MPSs. MPSs consist mostly of polysaccharides, glycoprotein, and salts of organic acids. Depending upon the origin of the aloe leaves, the harvesting conditions, and leaf processing, the polysaccharides represent about one half to two thirds of the MPSs, or about 10% to 15% of the total solids. With 13500 mg of MPSs per liter, Kaire International’s AloElite is one of the most potent forms of aloe extract available in the health supplement industry.
To further enhance the benefits of polysaccharides, Kalre has enriched AloElite with Manapol?. Research demonstrates that Manapol is one of the most effective polysaccharides of the aloe vera plant. Although all aloe vera juice naturally contains this substance, enriching AloElite with additional Manapol increases the efficacy of this premium juice. Scientists identified Manapol by stabilizing the aloe plant’s functional components through a freeze-dried dehydration process. This process retains all of the natural constituents and biological activity of this isolated polysaccharide. AloElite provides 20 mg of Manapol per 1-ounce serving.
AloElite with Manapol contains more than 200 active components: vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, enzymes, and plant chemicals such as complex sugars, proteins, and more. These nutrients encourage cellular activity in the body and provide dietary support for the digestive tract. Aloe vera has a soothing effect on the digestive tract lining and helps to provide a healthy balance of intestinal secretions.* 3. 4
Research shows that aloe vera supports immune system functions at the cellular level by a process known as receptor-site activation.2,5,6 Because the body’s receptor sites for polysaccharides become saturated with two ounces of aloe juice, Kaire recommends sipping two ounces of AloElite three times a day. By separating out your dosage to three times a day, you allow the receptor sites to be constantly saturated.
