The Healthy Slow Cooker 2nd Edition

So much more than just recipes!
“Gluten-free” and “paleo” weren’t even on most of our radars seven years ago when Judith Finlayson revolutionized slow cooker cooking with The Healthy Slow Cooker. The second edition offers even more delicious and convenient ways to cook and eat for our health and wellness, along with a wealth of “mindful morsels” that might just surprise you. For example, did you know that heating beef stock in the microwave dramatically reduces its health properties? There’s something here to make every course of every meal wholesome and irresistible. Best yet, recipes like Sumptuous Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Mediterranean Beef Ragout, Down-Home Tomatoes with Okra, and Basmati Rice Pudding definitely don't skimp on flavor. Color photo insert.
Wholesome and delicious
Creamy Morning Millet with Apples
Sumptuous Spinach & Artichoke Dip
Gingery Carrot Soup with Orange & Parsley
Tagine of Chicken & Apricots
Thai-Style Coconut Fish Curry
Pork Chili with Black-Eyed Peas
Ratatouille
Fennel Braised with Tomatoes
Basmati Rice Pudding

The 5-Minute Facial Workout: 30 Exercises for a Naturally Beautiful Face

How to combat the effects of aging in just 5 minutes a day.
More than 50 muscles make up the structure of the human face, and to a large degree these muscles determine facial appearance. The muscles of the face can be exercised and toned just like skeletal muscles. With this new program a marked difference in appearance will be developed and will potentially eliminate the common desire and need for invasive plastic surgery.
Too much sun, cigarette smoking, the degradation of collagen layers and poor skin create sagging facial muscles. Performing the facial gymnastics in this program on a regular basis will reverse a variety of concerns such as "empty" looking cheekbones, floppy jowls, relaxed eyelids, uncomely wrinkles and too much unwelcome elasticity. Catherine Pez prescribes a "facial gym" at home to exercise the muscles in the face with no special equipment -- just some diligence and discipline.
The smile works more than twenty five muscles on the face -- so smiling is an important first step. The small and important Risorius muscle is in the corner of the mouth and if well stimulated, will correct a drooping mouth. This muscle also stimulates the other mid-face muscles thereby inflating the cheeks and nothing is as fresh and young-looking as well-accentuated cheekbones.
Each exercise has clear instructions, with photographs that demonstrate the movements, so performing each exercise is easy and straightforward.

Healthier Outdoor Entertaining Tips

Healthier Outdoor Entertaining Tips

This outdoor entertaining post has been sponsored but all opinions expressed here are my own. As we move from summer into fall you would think that opportunities for outdoor entertaining would be disappearing, right? Well, here in Georgia we actually don’t do much outdoor entertaining in the summer. Mainly because it’s hot and humid all summer! Not to mention that swarms of mosquitoes are just waiting to bite my bare legs! I firmly believe that fall is the absolutely BEST season for outdoor entertaining. The weather in the evenings is cool enough to allow for a fire in the fire pit and it still stays light late enough that we aren’t stumbling around in the dark trying to eat dinner. If you are planning a little bit of outdoor...Read More
