4 Healthy Breakfast Ideas for a Busy Morning

 

Skipping breakfast is associated with an increased risk for obesity, metabolic syndrome, elevated triglycerides, high LDL-cholesterol, and low HDL-cholesterol (all risk factors for cardiovascular disease) in children.

 

A large study published in the journal Circulation followed over 20,000 men for 16 years, and found that those men who skipped it were 27% more likely to develop coronary heart disease.

 

Children who regularly eat first meal of the day have higher IQs than those who only eat it on occasion.

 

Regular breakfast consumption is associated with better behavior in school and better academic performance, including better grades and achievement test scores.

Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad – P #392

Chicken Recipe

 

chicken recipe dr martha castro noriega tijuana

 

Skinless, boneless chicken thighs are meatier, quicker to cook, and surprisingly healthier than you might think. They’re also budget friendly and less expensive than breasts. It definitely saves you money and adds a delicious flavor to your meal.

 

chicken recipe enjoy dra martha castro tijuana

 

Chicken thighs are the most delicious alternative. Marinate them so they can soak up flavor, grill for a smoky crispness, or coat in crumbs and pan fry for a lighter “fried” chicken. 

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 lb. yellow new potatoes (about 25)

Kosher salt and pepper

medium chicken thighs

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

1 tbsp. prepared horseradish

scallions, finely chopped

1 tbsp. tarragon, chopped

small radishes, thinly sliced

1/4 c. flat-leaf parsley, chopped

 

Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad - P #392 1

DIRECTIONS
  1. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover, then bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, season chicken with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and place in a large, heavy skillet, skin side down. Brush with mustard and place a piece of foil on top. Place a second skillet on top of chicken and put heavy cans in skillet (the contents won’t cook) to weigh it down (this will flatten chicken so it cooks up evenly and extra-crisp). Cook on medium until skin is deep brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip chicken and cook, uncovered, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and horseradish; stir in scallions and tarragon. Halve potatoes (or quarter if large); toss with vinaigrette, then radishes.
  4. Fold parsley into potato salad and serve with chicken.

Delicious New England Lobster Boil Recipe - #388 3

 

Add the potatoes and cook for about 6 minutes. Add the kielbasa then add the live lobsters, one at at time, claw first. Set the timer for 12 minutes. By then the lobsters will be cooked completely through and the meat will be solid white (if you are using a meat thermometer the temperature of the tail should read 180ºF).

At the 7 minute mark add the clams to the pot. When there are 4 minutes to go on the timer, add the corn.

When the time is up, drain the water from the pot and spread the contents from the boil on a large covered table or add the contents into large serving bowls.

Serve with grilled bread, lemon wedges and plenty of melted butter for dipping.

1 Easy Japan Delicious Long French Fries Recipe

JAPAN FOOT LONG FRIES

Though the foot-long fry trend has yet to blow up in the U.S, I am guessing it’s only a matter of time. That means, you should start assessing exactly how you feel about the creation.

1 Easy Japan Delicious Long French Fries Recipe 8

 

Where do you supposed extra long French fries will fall among the many different classifications of fries for you?

You’re probably wondering where on earth I find finds such massive potatoes to make these crispy creations, other than in Japan or Australia.

The answer is nowhere, they don’t exist. Instead, potatoes are mashed into a sort of batter-like consistency.

Then, the potato mixture is gathered into balls, and they’re placed, one by one, into a special machine that presses out long sticks of potato directly into a deep fryer. It kind of looks like pasta in the making.

 

1 Easy Japan Delicious Long French Fries Recipe 9

 

Once you get your basket of fresh #longfries, you can top them with one of two Japanese dipping sauces (let’s be honest, eating a dry French fry is pretty much pointless): a creamy shiitake mushroom sauce or a more traditional Japanese mayonnaise… though no one’s judging if you want to stick with regular ketchup or vinegar 😂🍿}

3 Most Delicious Hot Dogs in the World … Oh Yeah!

Experts estimate that Americans eat over 20 billion hot dogs every year. That’s about 60 for every American each year. 

Originally called frankfurters, their origin can be traced back to 1852 in Frankfurt, Germany. From the start, frankfurters were basically small sausages.

 

GERMAN STYLE

 

hot dogs

 

Today, some are made entirely of one type of meat, such as beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. There are even vegetarian hot dogs that contain no meat at all. Many hot dogs, however, are more like traditional sausages, because they are made from a secret recipe containing a mixture of a variety of ingredients.

 

NEW YORK STYLE

 

3 Most Delicious Hot Dogs in the World ... Oh Yeah! 10

 

Although there are as many special recipes out there, most of them consist of a similar set of ingredients. These include meat, meat fat, filler (such as flour or bread crumbs), egg whites, and spices. Some popular spices include salt, pepper, onion, and garlic.

Yes, there is always good and bad in all, isn’t? And bacteria is not the exception.

 

good bacteria

 

Our bodies have different tissues full with excellent microbes that help us fight the bad ones. It is so important that we take care and preserve this kind, helpful and faithful bacteria, so we can have an army of healthy tiny micro bio-soldiers for the attack of the bad ones when necessary.

Flavanols promote the production of nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels and enhances blood flow. This helps lower blood pressure and ultimately enhances heart health.

These flavanols can also increase insulin sensitivity and possibly cut down diabetes risk.
