Why should we eat this 3 super healthy seeds??

 

We always do ignore seeds in our every day diet which are packed with super nutrition. We hardly add them in our routine meals.

QUINOA

• Misinterpreted as grain. 1 cup of cooked Quinoa contains 8 quinoagrams of protein-and you get a side of cancer-fighting antioxidants. A super substitute of rice, corn or potato in our everyday meal.

• How to eat it: Substitute for rice in your next stir-fry, or mix some in a salad.

Just be sure to rinse it well before cooking so you avoid bitterness.

calories) along with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

• How to eat it: Blend into a smoothie or sprinkle on top of oatmeal. You also can add the crunchy, nutty seeds to quick- Just soak them in water for 10 mins and add to any favorite drink or ice cream.

Sugar or Honey

 free grocery shopping app

The average person consumes about 24 kilograms of sugar each year (33.1 kg in industrialised countries), equivalent to over 260 food calories per person, per day. Sugar and honey are used as sweeteners and contain glucose and fructose. But the differences are listed below:

Sugar Honey
Organic acids, proteins, nitrogen elements, enzymes, vitamins of sugar cane are destroyed in the process of manufacturing Natural sweetners and has beneficial antioxidant and antimicrobial properties
I Tbsp of sugar has 46 calories 1 tbsp of honey has 64 calories. So you need to use less quantity of honey compared to sugar
Cheap Expensive but use in  less quantity
While consuming sugar, our stomach has to use its own enzymes to separate the molecules apart before we can use the sugar’s energy The  bees have added a special enzyme to the nectar that divides the sucrose into glucose and fructose — two simple sugars for our bodies can absorb directly
Low Glycemic Index means slower absorption and infusion in the blood stream
If you are watching your weight, use honey

I have added honey in my grocery list. Did you also add it? No need of pen and paper now to make the list. You can still make the list on the iphone or android phone using free grocery shopping app “ Aisletracker “ and also track the product in the store.

Steps to save money at Costco

costco
Costco have terrific deals, great prices, quality merchandise and good return policy.
Here are some tips to save money while shopping at Costco.
• Items ending with 99¢ are regular priced merchandise though not always. Try to look for items whose price ends with 97¢ or 79¢ and so on. Those items did not sell and must be cleared out. You can ask the manager the original price of that item.
• Look for the asterisk sign on the upper right side of the price sign. If you find the sign, it means this item is not being reordered and whatever stock they have in store will be sold   and not replaced.
• Those items whose prices end with 88¢ or .00 are the Manager Markdowns taken at store on returned but sellable merchandise. They can be in display goods section or are kept in the special area of the store so that they don’t take up valuable store space. They have original price crossed out and close out price printed using magic marker saying “Last one”. But sometimes you might need those items and they are really best bargain.
• Another deal is “Instant Rebates” displayed on some items. These rebates comes from manufacturer and Costco gives you rebate on that item at the cash register.

Ate Chillies? Tips to cool down your mouth

AisleTracker - Free grocery shopping app

Ever ate chillies and had burning mouth? Drinking lot of water doesn’t decrease the burning sensation. Here are some of the tips:

Ice water: Cold water will numb the pain but temporarily.

Whole Milk: Chugging a glass of cold cow juice did mitigate the heat in my mouth considerably.

Yogurt: You will finally feel some relief. It will coat your mouth with dairy based fire blanket.

Beer: Usually a cold can of beer is given along with spicy hot food. Coldness in beer numbs the pain and carbonated taste helps you but again it is temporary.

Vodka: Alcohol helps to dissolve capsaicin. It works well with every sip but it makes you feel drunk 

White Rice – The WINNER: Two big mouthfuls of cold leftover rice will banish the pain from your mouth. The abrasive quality of the grains helps to dislodge the capsaicin. Finally you will feel some relief.
