Healthy Snacks

My family members like to tease me about the fact that I don’t have a very high tolerance for discomfort. I claim to be “dying of heat” or “freezing cold” (rather than a little warm or a little cool). I’m either “bouncing off the walls” or “exhausted” (instead of simply awake or sleepy). And of course I’m never hungry. I’m starving (that is, when I’m not totally stuffed).

When I am starving it’s never a good situation. My hands start shaking. My mood turns sour really fast. I need food. ASAP!

When you’re trying to eat healthy, it’s important to prepare for emergencies. Otherwise, it’s too easy to grab the sugary, chemically-laden junk food that abounds in stores and fast-food restaurants and vending machines. So here’s what I do to prepare for the week: I usually bake some sort of muffins on Sundays (blueberry, apple oat bran, or other kinds where the recipe doesn’t call for sugar and refined flour). I also hard boil 6 eggs for easy snacking. I make a bag of trail mix: raw almonds, raw walnuts, dried cranberries and/or organic raisins. I keep baked tortilla chips in the cupboards and homemade salsa in the fridge. I love raw green beans (there I go being dramatic and extreme again), and I have been known to steal a handful of those as I head out the door. And now that fall is here, I’ve been stocking up on apples – such an easy, delicious fruit to grab on the go.

What are your favorite healthy snacks?

That Was Easy

I wanted to pop two pills.

After taking the summer off, I played tennis for nearly two hours yesterday and my legs ached from my hips down to my ankles. Also, I had a headache.

Oh, how I wanted ibuprofen to be the answer! Pop the meds, mask the pain, and let me go to sleep. But I decided to hold off. A few little thoughts floated around in my head: What is my body trying to tell me? Could yoga help?

The headache was probably because I was dehydrated. It was hot on the courts. I drank some water and then set the glass down on a table. Sitting on the floor, I raised my arms over my head, clasped my hands together, and turned my palms towards the ceiling. I lowered onto my back and squeezed one knee into my chest while keeping the other leg straight. Switched sides. I did a few spinal twists to remove the stiffness in my hips. Gentle, easy stretches. And I felt so much better afterwards.

That was easy. And it took less than twenty minutes – the time it would’ve taken the ibuprofen to reach my system.

Getting Your Tadalafil Online is Brilliant and Convenient

In the past, prior to the advent of the internet and e-commerce, people usually rely on pharmacies and drugstores to provide them with the medications they need.  Although this has always been the norm, the problem is that some retail outlets do not have, cater, or carry out certain branding or medications simply because they are not in partnership with the drug label or they do not stock such because they do not sell much and just occupy storage space.  For this reason, if you are looking for a certain drug that is not available in your area, either you go look around for it in neighboring cities that may have them, or simply settle for the nearest alternative to the drug but may not even come close in terms of effectiveness to what you are looking for.

Fortunately for all of us, we now live in an age where online commerce is abundant and internet connectivity is easily available.  This means if you are looking for a certain product or a particular type of medication, all you have to do is go online, open your favorite web browser, then, using your favorite search engine, enter your search query like “buy tadalafil online.”  This search will give you thousands of results, then it is up to you to look for the shop you would want to buy tadalafil online.
