Fabulous Find! GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread

I’m always on the hunt for something that’s delicious and most importantly HARMLESS when it comes to your diet. Night time can be the hardest time if your having cravings and trying to be committed to a diet plan or just plain good. I have found the answer to late night hunger! GG Bran Crispbread helps with the cravings, makes you feel satiated, and is ideal for those who are diabetic. Low in carbohydrates (so it’s perfect for night time so your body doesn’t store added carbohydrates during sleep and end up as an added love handle :-( …), high in fiber, 12 calories per slice, only 3 digestible carbs, low insulin = weight loss euphoria!!!

I haven’t gotten a chance to look for it at my Whole Foods yet but you can order it from Netrition.com !

Golden Corral Employee Outs Disgusting Food Practices

A Golden Corral Employee disgusted by his companies practices has decided to out the restaurant by showing how sick and careless this business is. Disgusting images of a filthy kitchen were released as well as a video showcasing the restaurants extra storage station as no other than their garbage area outside.YUCK.

A Reddit user with the user id  GCWhistlebower posted four pictures of a kitchen abundant with garbage right by food that is overflowing. The GCWhistleblower described the photo as;

 “Just an average day for a Golden Corral Employee, best working conditions ever!”

See for yourself…

Run Tarahumara Style w/ Chia & Pinole

If you’ve ever ran before than you’ve probably heard of the book Born to Run about the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico who are know to run bare feet for hundred’s of miles nonstop for pure enjoyment. Their diet is primarily made up of two things Pinole and Chia Seeds. These two sources are known to have great energy boosts and are a huge help to the Tarahumara people and other runners (newbies and athletes alike).

I tried for myself a few recipes that were noted in Born to Run and found them very helpful with my running with ample energy throughout the rest of my day. Pinole is most commonly known as Cornmeal/Maize and is toasted in a skillet on low to medium heat. They most commonly make it into a paste or even put into a drink.

Here’s the paste lowdown/recipe;

1/2 cup cornmeal, ground as fine as possible (Whole Foods Grain section peeps ;-D)

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 Tbsp brown sugar, honey, or agave nectar

Chia seeds (optional but I do recommend it)

Toast the Cornmeal on low to medium heat, and be careful because it toasts FAST! If you burn it the “toastyness” will over power the flavor of the paste….believe me I should know it was not cute the first time :-( Then take the toasted Cornmeal and transfer it into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. After the remaining ingredients are added then add your water. Be careful with the “water” step you control how much water you put into. Remember that the key is to add enough water until it becomes a paste.  After you’ve done all of these steps you can either put the paste into Tupperware or bake it at 350 * till’ it has a brownie consistency. I usually just put it in Tupperware and eat a tablespoon of the paste before a run on my way out the house first thing in the morning.

Here’s the drank lowdown/recipe;

10 oz of water or a bottled water (easier to grab and go if your a busy body like me)

1 Tbsp dry chia seeds

a few teaspoons lemon or lime juice

honey or agave nectar, to taste (optional I usually don’t add this but you can do your own thing :-D)

Add all of your ingredients to your water and let it sit for a couple minutes. Chia Seeds are like a gel consistency that absorb water. The texture might be odd to you at first but after a couple of times you won’t care. Chia also has a slimey consistency as well, so there might be a lil’ to overcome but you’ll get over it. Et VOILA! You have your Chia Fresca/a.k.a Tarahumara Drank to kick butt and take names on your next run.

Skechers Shape-Ups Lawsuit

Lawsuits keep pouring in for Skecher’s Shape Up’s since 2011 till’ present. Countless lawsuits continuing to poor in claiming the shape up’s caused stress fractures in both hips… and a flabby butt.

The distinctive rounded sole was marketed as an instant toning workout all in a pair of shoes. The added bonus is that the Skecher’s Shape Up’s were suppose to prevent injury and correct body alignment. They did everything but what they promised. One lawsuit details the injuries’ of one young lady;

“The femoral bone is the strongest bone in the human body and I fractured not one but two of them without being in a car crash or any traumatic incident,” she said.

Let’s just be honest with ourselves. Who in there right minds really thought that these half mooned shoes were gonna work?
