10th Week BFC Day 1

Good morning everyone, man I had some bad dreams last night and I don't feel well rested this morning... Anyway such is life. Yesterday was a nice day, I got off work early and went to a bookstore and read magazines and looked at books and drank an americano. I love magazines, I find reading them so relaxing, I hardly ever buy them since most of them are a waste of money, but I do get Rachel Ray in the mail. Hubby volunteers with our church's youth group on Monday nights and he eats pizza there so I don't have to cook Monday's.

Some things I recently learned in the First for Women Magazine April 4, 2011 that I want to share with everyone
·         Omega 3 fatty acids are shown to be as effective as anti-depressants. Studies show that these fats balance the nerve signals involved in mood shifts by countering nerve inflammation.

·         A unique type of fiber known as inulin helps with weight loss, found in asparagus, chicory, artichokes, onions, jicama, and yams. It works by fermenting in the digestive tract, and feeds healthy probiotic bacteria and increases the body’s production of short-chain fatty acids that boost levels of satiety hormones, it also helps balance blood sugar to reduce food cravings.

  1. Congrats on your new job. How are you liking it?

  2. Thanks for the info from the magazine! :) I love reading all the magazines too, I especially like to read Women's Day and First. They always have cute little things in them or yummy recipes, etc. Looks like you ate great today. :) Keep up the good work Katie.

  3. My new job is great, thanks for asking Minichick. Sometimes it's a little slow and that makes time drag, but I am grateful to have a job, hubby and I have been able to rest easier now that I have one.

    I tried your flax seed bread this morning, super yummy and quick. I plan to make it tomorrow for hubby he has been asking for some kind of healthy muffiny thing and I think that will fit.
