5 Mistakes You’re Making with Your Oatmeal Mon, 18 Dec 2017 04:29:14 +0000 There’s nothing worse than starting your day off on the wrong note. You need to have a delicious, satisfying breakfast and oatmeal is a great option.

Here are 5 mistakes you are probably making with your oatmeal:

1. You use a small bowl or pot for cooking

Oatmeal makes big bubbles when cooking and can spill over easily. Rather cook your breakfast in a large pot or bowl whether in the microwave or on the stove top. It may seem a waste if you’re just cooking for yourself, but you’ll be grateful when you don’t have to scrub oatmeal off the stovetop.

2. Adding oats at the wrong time on the stovetop

When you add your oats will make a difference to the texture. Add to a cold liquid if you prefer to keep their shape. Add the oats to a simmering liquid for a creamier texture.

3. Not stirring

Stirring will help to break up the bubbles and prevent spill-over. Stirring releases extra starch which will make your oatmeal much creamier.

4. You forget the salt

You always need a pinch of salt, whether your oatmeal is sweet or savory. Always add it when you start cooking for the best flavor.

5. You prepare your oats with water

If you want your oats to be as fulfilling as possible you need to prepare them with milk, not water. The extra little boost protein in the milk will help you to feel fuller and your oatmeal will be a lot creamier.

How to Avoid Emotional Eating Mon, 18 Dec 2017 04:29:14 +0000 It’s almost midnight, but you’re sitting in your room, with a bowl of ice-cream in front of you. The fact that this is the sixth time you’ve comforted yourself with ice-cream in one day makes you feel even worse. So you make sure a pack of peanuts is on hand.

Yes, you might have a problem (and trust me, you’re not alone!). When eating becomes a primary method to comfort oneself at tough times, it can lead to serious weight gain and health issues.

Read the tips below to quit this habit before it harms you physically and emotionally.

Be aware

Every time you feel the urge to eat, ask yourself if you are really physically hungry. Tell the difference between real hunger and emotional hunger.

Keep a food diary

Jot down when, where and what you eat, how hungry you are and how you feel when you eat. You may start to see patterns in your behavior.


Sip herbal tea, black tea, or just water. This inhibits the hormone that makes you crave food.

Try some other healthy stress management techniques

Depending on your interests, go jogging, get a gym membership, try yoga or meditation.

Take away temptation

Don’t keep any of those irresistible sweets, snacks and comfort foods at home or in the office. Stick to what you need for basic, healthy meals, and never buy more than you need.

Be patient, and learn from your mistakes

Make plans how to avoid the same mistakes. Results will come, but not at once.

Attention Rice Lovers: White Is Out, Brown Is In! And Here’s All You Need To Know! Mon, 18 Dec 2017 04:29:13 +0000 If you love rice, then you need to know that brown rice is the next best thing! Rice is a staple food particularly in Asian nations, but is enjoyed all over the world. The most popular options include white rice and brown rice.

While white rice is the most popular, brown rice is known for being the healthier option. So, what is the difference between the two?

What is the Difference between Brown and White Rice?

All types of rice are essentially carbohydrates and contain small quantities of protein and almost no fat. The difference lies in the nutrients in the rice grains. The brown variety is a whole grain that contains a carb-rich endosperm, fibrous bran, and the nutritious germ.

This bran and the germ are what makes the rice so nutritious. On the other hand, white rice has had the germ and bran removed, resulting in a less nutritious grain.

The Brown Rice Advantage

Brown rice towers over white rice in terms of advantages. All in all, brown rice has a higher fiber content as well as more minerals and vitamins. Additionally, brown rice contains important antioxidants that are lacking in white rice. Simply put, white rice is filled with “empty calories”.

With high levels of fiber and magnesium, brown rice can help to control blood sugar levels. Regular consumption of brown rice can have a positive effect on blood sugar as well as reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

Is Petroleum Jelly Good For Face And Lips? Mon, 18 Dec 2017 04:29:13 +0000 Is petroleum jelly really a magic “cure-all” for face skin problems, or is it more harmful than we think? The answer is kind of mixed, so we sum up both benefits and dangers below.

What is petroleum jelly?

Petroleum jelly, which you probably know by the popular brand name Vaseline, is a jelly-like mixture of oils and waxes. It is a derivative of oil refining and was first discovered in the 19th century when coating oil rigs.

What are the benefits of petroleum jelly for face and lips?

Petroleum jelly does serve as good protection for face and lips. Its main ingredient, petroleum, has a thick texture that protects the skin against the cold, heat or wind, while also preserving moisture.

Here is what experts recommend.

Use it to moisturize your face, especially when exposed to the elements.

Use it for makeup removal.

Apply it as a face/body lotion after a shower.

Apply it to small scars and burns.

Can petroleum jelly be harmful?

In brief, yes. It really depends on the type of petroleum jelly and what you use it for, so let’s sum up the danger here:

The jelly should be used on previously cleaned skin. If you put it on an unwashed face, it will seal in all remaining dirt and may lead to skin reactions.

Petroleum jelly is meant for external use. You can use it on lips, but do not use it to soothe the inside of your nostrils, as this may cause serious respiratory problems.

There are indications that petroleum jelly is carcinogenic, due to components from oil refining. Be sure to use only the triple-purified products such as Vaseline (all triple-purified products ar
