Veggies Can Be Your Favourite Food Too

051 Favorite FoodsGenerally speaking, most people do not really want to eat vegetables, most especially kids and even young people. When ask for their favourite food, vegetables are most of the time not included in the list of favourites. The list will only include burger, fried chicken, fries, pizza, chocolates, ice cream, but never food with lots of vegetables on it or the vegetable as its main ingredient.

 

But there are absolutely many things that we are missing for not eating vegetables or even for not including just a little amount vegetables in our diet. And there are certainly many reasons for vegetables to be turned into our favourite food. We can get a lot of benefits from it and it is definitely good of our body.

 

For one, it is full of vitamins and minerals that are good for our health. Vegetables have a lot of nutrients to offer that can be good for the body. For example, most vegetables are said to have phytochemicals that can help in fighting aging and even cancer. Eating vegetables can also help in lowering the risk of having heart disease and the like. Vegetables also contain a lot of fibre compared to meat such as beef, pork, chicken, and so on that we usually love, which in fact contains a lot of fats and cholesterol that if one eats too much, it can be really harmful to our health.  Also, fibre in vegetables is especially good when it comes to digestion. It is said that when your body digests food well, then you are receiving a lot of nutrients from the food that you are eating. It is also good in removing toxins and other wastes in your body because it contains elements that can attract such toxins and waste. Vegetables are also good for the skin. No wonder those who eat lots of vegetables have healthier skin than those who does not.  Eating vegetables can give you healthy skin as well as it can give you such natural glow.

 

However, despite all these benefits one can get from eating vegetables and even more, a lot of people are still not fond of eating vegetables, especially those that can be eaten raw. Even so, if one does not want to eat vegetables because of its taste and yet still want to reap the benefits of eating such, he or she can still do so. There are a lot of ways these days. And one can make one on her own. For example, if one does not want to eat vegetables as it is, he or she can make shakes and smoothies. There are even vegetable flavoured ice creams these days.

Cooking Your Kid’s Favorite Foods

153 Favorite FoodsAs a mother, it is one of our responsibilities to secure and ensure the health of our children by simply preparing them healthy food on their plates. Most of the time children could be picky with their food but it’s how the parents educate and train their children. If your kid is trained to eat healthy food, you will not have any problem feeding them with vegetables and fruits. Children are actually looking at their mothers. They would actually follow or imitate whatever they see form their parents. If they see their parents are eating that particular food, they would also eat it thinking that it is safe. But do not rule-out the fact we still need to educate and train our children why they should eat healthy food. But let me tell you this, never lie to your children. Do not give them false ideas. Be honest even if they do not understand it yet but their minds are capable of storing those memories which they could remember when they get older. Now, if you want to be sure that your kids will grow healthy, you need to cook their favorite foods in a healthy way.

 

Spaghetti

The top most favorite food of many kids is spaghetti. I never met kids who do not like spaghetti. Spaghetti is actually a kid food. I am sure that you are cooking homemade spaghetti for your kids at least once a week. Now, since your kids love spaghetti, make sure that they are cook healthily. You can actually use tomato sauce that is rich in vitamins. Or, you can also use fresh tomato sauce if you want a fresh healthy tomato sauce for your spaghetti. You can also add some herbs and spices to add to the flavor and also to the nutrients of the spaghetti.

 

Fresh Fruit Smoothies

Aside from spaghetti, another favorite food of children is smoothies. Children love to drink smoothies. But most smoothies that are sold at the market are made from artificial flavoring and color which could be unhealthy for your kids. So, instead of buying, why don’t you make them a fresh fruit smoothie? I am sure they will love it and would ask for more.

 

Chicken

Of course, we cannot rule-out chicken on the menu. Every kid love to eat chicken. But which part of the chicken is healthy for children? I would say that you give the breast part because it is lean meat which means less fat and calories.

 

Pancakes

One more favorite dish that we could add to the menu is pancakes. Instead of buying them instant ready mix pancakes, I would suggest that you make them from scratch it will be healthier.

 

There are more health favorite foods that I’m sure you kids would like and you have to know and learn how to cook them.

Adopting Your Favorite Pet And Taking It Home

Each of us has our own preference or should I say favorite pet. It could be a dog, cat, birds, reptiles, or exotic animals. Whatever pet you want to adopt that would be up to you as long as you are happy with it and you know how to raise them and what to feed them. Sometimes there are people who just adopt pets but don’t have any idea about them. They adopt it because they find it cute especially if they are cuddly. It’s not healthy or proper that you will adopt a pet without doing some research about them because worse thing that could happen is they might die starving because you don’t have any idea what to feed them.

 

055 Favorite Pet

So, if you claim that you have a favorite pet that you want to adopt, make sure that you have great knowledge about them. Like their habitat, food, temperature, and so on and so forth. You need to know everything about your favorite pet so it can survive if you adopt them. There are pets that might not comfortable with the homes that you made for them and they might die because they are not comfortable with their new habitat especially if you put them on cage. In case you plan to put them on case, make sure that it’s big enough that they could roam around and try to set it up as if they are just in their habitat. Now, the most complicated pet that you can adopt that might require special attention and habitat for them to survive are exotic pets like reptiles such as snakes, alligators, iguana, gecko, and even spider such as tarantula.

 

I have a tarantula right now and ever since I have been a fan of spider. So, right now I have three tarantulas and one of them is a year old now. What I like about tarantula is that they are so easy to feed. They are not picky when it comes to food. They eat almost anything particularly insects. But what I’m feeding my tarantulas is worms or they call it super worms. These worms are very healthy and rich in protein. Tarantulas also are not hard to feed because all you need to is to put the worms in front of them and they will grab it and eat it. And you don’t have to feed them every day. So, they are not that expensive to feed.

Traveling Solo: My Favorite Places In New York

220 Favorite Places in New YorkThe first time I traveled overseas, I was at a young age. My trip was not the typical family vacation abroad. I was alone. It was quite unexpected because I was supposed to travel with a relative who, unfortunately, was not able to join me in our international flight. I was terrified at first, but when I got to see the country day after day, all the worries and uncertainties just seemed to evaporate. The scenario is similar when I visited New York City. I was only there for two weeks, but it felt like a month wouldn’t be enough either. To give you a feel of my experiences, here are my favorite places in NYC.

 

A classic favorite would be the famous Empire State Building. Once at the top, you will be taking in a breathtaking view of the city. The best part is that it is open until midnight. This means you will be able to appreciate the romantic view of New York City lights. You haven’t been to New York if you haven’t visited the Statue of Liberty. This monument, a gift from the French, is located at Liberty Island. You will need to ride a ferry in order to get to it. There are also cruises which allow you to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge and the World Trade Center all in one day.

 

Aside from the popular destinations, I also made time to visit some places that local folks love. Because I am a huge fan of cream puffs, this bakery in Upper East Side blew me away. Apparently, Choux Factory is known for their delicious cream puffs served fresh every day! For cream puff lovers like me, Choux Factory is the perfect venue for satisfying that sugar craving. Another thing that I obsessed about when I was in New York is chocolate! My personal favorite chocolate shop is MarieBelle. Their famous chocolates are served in a lovely ambiance and in such an artistic manner that it is just difficult to bite into them. In terms of shopping, my favorite place is Macy’s Department Store. It offers a wide variety of products, ranging from fashion pieces to kitchenware. What made it interesting is that it is ten floors high! I have never seen a department store as large as Macy’s.

 

My trip to NYC has been a delight. I wish I could have stayed longer so that I could have explored more of its hidden treasures. Two weeks is a very short span of time but I had to make the most out of it. I have so many things that I have yet to discover in New York City, but until then, I cannot wait to go back.

Remember that our mouth is immobilized when we are asleep and that is the time where the bacteria accumulate and multiply. With all the food that we ate and also the drinks that we drank, we need to clean our teeth to prevent cavity and tooth decays.

Aside from being healthy, they are also delicious. I’m not going to worry about weight gain because fruits and vegetable do not contain calories and fats that could cause weight gain. There are also so many things that I can do with my fruits and vegetables: I can make fruits smoothies, I can make vegetable and fruits salad, I can also make dessert, or I can just eat them fresh.

 

Be Hygienic

Another healthy habit is being hygienic. We need to be clean when it comes to our body. We need to shower every day, use deodorants, brush our teeth, and wash our hand before and after eating.

Another healthy habit is by engaging yourself in sports. Sports is a healthy habit because it helps burn stored fats, increase your energy level, keeps you active, helps regulate blood circulation, and it promotes relaxation especially with stress.

4 Favorite Foods Of All Times

153 Favorite FoodsWhat are your favorite foods? Who picked them? Is it you alone or are you only influenced by others? Food is good for the body. It gives energy. It provides proper nourishment for normal bodily functions. It makes you feel full. In short, it sustains life. But, not all foods are good to eat. Some can be bought at the most expensive prices yet they do not taste and look good. Some are loaded with preservatives thus making them inappropriate to eat. If we are going to survey what people really like to eat, we will know the names of those foods. It is exciting. Let’s name the four all-time favorites.

 

Chocolate

We all love chocolates, right? What makes them different? They taste sweet. Chocolates are sometimes soft and chewy. There are also crisps and dark. This is one of the best comfort foods ever. It is relaxing to eat especially if you feel tired or worried. It will definitely calm your nerves. Besides, you don’t need containers to store them. Chocolates are excellently wrapped in plastic, perfect wherever you go. They are light and easily eaten.

 

Pizza

Favorite foods look so convincing this is pizza is still people’s choice. We can have fries or cake but nothing beats hot-served pizza. Its look alone can convince eaters. How much more if you find it so good? Do you need a slice now? Pizza flavors vary from BBQ, cheese, melted chicken, pepperoni, etc. You can choose which yours.

 

Ice Cream

You want something cold so you can feel better? There is ice cream. If you have a serious argument with your dad or you just broke up with your boyfriend, take ice cream so you’ll feel better. Choose among variety of flavors. Lovers know what I want to say. The ice-cream container should be stored properly in the fridge. Refrigerating ice-cream means keeping their original look, taste and feel

 

Chicken

People go crazy over chicken. It can be prepared in various ways. We have recipes like curry, fried, soup, burger, and more. Chefs provide various flavors for cooked chicken so if it’s ideal for you to eat crispy, juicy legs, then eat. Prep

Now, are these four included in your favorite food list?  If yes, then the survey on most eaten foods says right. There’s more. As a reminder, prepare food the natural way. This lessens the need for fertilizer and other chemicals. So, we can all be healthy.

Training The Family Dog

Training everyone’s favorite pet, the family dog, requires patience and consistency. From the moment that the new pet is brought home it’s important to enforce the rules that are going to be used in the household. This way, the pet can gain the confidence needed to learn the new skills and the owners can avoid the frustration that comes with giving the dog mixed signals throughout the training process.

How can the pet owner succeed at training the family dog?

Be consistent from the moment the pet is entered into the household. From the time the puppy comes home it’s important to begin to form the behaviors that are going to be desired in the adult dog. This can include areas of the home and furniture that are going to be off-limits to the dog, sleeping and eating areas and the schedule at which the dog is going to be fed.

Reward good behavior for the best results in dog training. Food is like a language for dogs and using small pieces of dog food while training to confirm good behavior is effective at demonstrating that this is the proper way to act in the home and while out and about.

Use a firm voice while addressing the dog, but avoid yelling. Screaming and yelling at a loud voice is ineffective at getting the family pet to follow directions but is an effective way to cause the dog to become scared. Avoid scaring the dog while reprimanding the favorite pet, as this can cause irreversible damage to the relationship between the pet owner and the dog.

For new dog owners, obedience training classes provide the tools that are needed to train the owner to teach the dog to behave. These classes are offered at pet stores and breeders and can help to create a long lasting relationship with the new pet.

Making Healthy Habits Fun

Engaging in some of your Favorite Heathy Habits can be a good way to keep in shape and feeling great. No one likes to diet or feel forced to exercise, so developing habits that you find fun and engaging will help you stick to your lifestyle choices so that you do not feel like you are depriving yourself of anything like you may feel with a diet or strict exercise regimen.

For instance, if you do not see yourself lifting weights or sweating in a gym on a treadmill, try doing something simple like taking a walk through the mall on a regular basis. This way, you get to window shop while getting a workout. If you have children, you can try to get out with them every once and a while and play with them. Running around with young children is a great workout that does not seem like exercise because it is fun.

You can also develop healthier eating habits without sacrificing the pleasure of eating. You can find new ways to make vegetables so that they do not taste bland. You should look for recipes such as spinach patties or Greek cheese and potato patties to spice up your meals. Learning how to snack properly can also help you see to it that you indulge in your sweet tooth every once in a while.  We’ve really liked the hcg drops diet that has helped overweight people lose faster than ever.  This diet helps those that have had troubles with any other diet previously attempted.

While you are considering your Favorite Heathy Habits, you also need to consider how you take care of yourself mentally. Taking some time to wind down and have a quiet moment can do wonders in helping you get through your day. Scented candles and other such pleasures can help you set an atmosphere of serenity and relaxation. Even if you can only take five minutes to breathe deeply, you need to find a way to relax.

Some Favorite Diets Are Very Effective

Many people have struggled with the process of trying to lose weight, but with this battle against excess fat, they have also found some of the best diets available. In fact, everyone seems to have their own favorite diets. Some of the factors that make a diet popular are, of course, its effectiveness; but in addition to that, a diet’s ease of use and flexibility can also be major factors in how popular it becomes with dieters.

There are numerous diets, some focused on only consuming a couple of foods, others that are high in protein, low in protein or even requiring eating only raw foods. While there can certainly be many effective paths to losing weight, it is important to follow a healthy diet and ensure that your nutritional needs are being met. Fortunately, when it comes to choosing from some of the most favorite diets currently in use, you have plenty of choices. In fact, you can adapt just about any diet to meet your needs.

If you are looking for an easy way to lose weight, it is important to realize that no diet is going to provide a magic bullet. Weight loss is a process of taking in fewer calories and burning excess fat until you reach your desired weight. You can use one of your favorite diets, but if you have any doubt as to its nutritional value, be sure to speak with your physician before you begin.

Some doctors will have a diet plan that they like their patients to follow; however, if you are already prepared with your own favorite diet, your doctor should be able to help you pinpoint any nutritional deficiencies that you will need to meet either by using supplements or by incorporating a wider range of foods into your plan. Whatever weight loss plan you choose, it is important to stay focused and make a commitment to stick with your plan until you achieve your desired results.
