5 Superfoods for Woman

25 May

1. Papaya. This tropical fruit packs about twice the vitamin C of an orange. Add it to your arsenal against gallbladder disease, which afflicts twice as many women as men

2. Flaxseed. Bakers use this nutty-flavored seed mainly to add flavor and fiber. But scientists see the tiny reddish-brown seed, rich in estrogenlike compounds called lignans, as a potential weapon against breast cancer. An exciting report at last year’s San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium showed that adding flaxseed to the diet of women with breast cancer effectively slowed tumor growth. You can flavor your muffins with flaxseed, but the easiest way to get the beneficial lignans is to sprinkle a few tablespoons of ground flaxseed on your morning cereal. Look for the seeds in health food stores or in supermarkets on the flour aisle. They’re easy to grind in a blender or coffee grinder. But get seeds — there are no lignans in the oil.

3. Tofu. Foods high in soy protein can lower cholesterol and may minimize menopausal hot flashes and strengthen bone. Isoflavones, plant chemicals in soybeans that have a structure similar to estrogen, may be the reason. Though animal studies form the bulk of the evidence, a human study found that 90 mg of isoflavones was beneficial to bone (specifically the spine). And two other studies suggest that 50 to 76 mg of isoflavones a day may offer some relief from hot flashes. A half-cup of tofu contains about 25 to 35 mg of isoflavones.

4. Buffalo Meat. Due largely to menstruation, women tend to be anemic more than men. And low iron levels in blood can cause severe fatigue. To get a good dose of iron, try bison. Bison, or buffalo, meat is lean and has what diet-conscious women want — lots of iron and less fat than most cuts of beef. “The iron content is about 3 milligrams in a 3 1/2-ounce uncooked portion,” says Marty Marchello, Ph.D., at North Dakota State University. “That portion contains less than 3 grams of fat.” Buffalo meat can help boost energy and lower weight. And you don’t have to have a home on the range to get some bison anymore. You can pick it up at many supermarkets across the United States, or through mail order or on the Internet.
 

5. Collard Greens. This humble vegetable may help fight osteoporosis, which afflicts many women late in life. In addition to getting adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D, some studies suggest that vitamin K may have a bone-protective effect as well. Based on data from one of the largest studies of women, the Nurses’ Health Study, researchers discovered that women who ate enough vitamin K-rich foods (at least 109 micrograms of the vitamin daily) were 30 percent less likely to suffer a hip fracture during ten years of follow-up than women who ate less. Researchers point out that dark-green leafy vegetables — Brussels sprouts, spinach, broccoli — are all good sources of the vitamin. But collard greens, with about 375 micrograms per half-cup, are among the best.

Compromises

24 May
So i am going through it this week and i realized that i compromised a person for God, and i began to cry because it hurt me to hurt the one thing that loves me more than i love myself.
and i as i looked deeper into the situation, i realized how much i compromised myself for this person also. one thing i practice is keeping a very healthy self esteem. and it is continual work to keep that esteem up, it isn’t something that you can do without work (at least for me.)
In my situation i attempted to remain true in the relationship (meaning more than just sexually) in all aspects. but when it is not reciprocated in the same way it is given, sometimes it is difficult to see which direction to take. During this time on the earth we place value on relationships and we see so much bullshit on television we really don’t know what a good relationship means or what it takes to keep it going.
it is nice to have presents, and good sex, nice house and vehicle but in the end of the day can you love me and be there for me the way i can for you. So many people have been burned from the past relationships they have been in either they don’t believe in true love or they don’t know how to give love.
do you try to teach or let GOD reveal to them when it is their time to receive it.
i am writing random thoughts so sorry my mind is jumbled.

strawberry vodka cocktail

24 May

if you love strawberries you’ll definitely be a fan of this easy sipper. I combined vodka with lemon juice, muddled strawberries, and simple syrup. The whole thing is shaken and then strained into a chilled glass. It’s a seasonal, slightly girlie drink that’s delightfully balanced and ends up somewhere between too sweet and too potent. This strawberry vodka cocktail is just the thing to kick-start your weekend, so cheers! Grab a glass and get the recipe.

Strawberry Vodka Cocktail

Ingredients

3 strawberries, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons Simple Syrup
2 ounces vodka
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Ice
strawberry or lemon wheel, optional for garnish

Directions

Put the strawberries and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddle well.
Add the vodka, lemon juice, and ice. Shake hard for 45 seconds and strain into a chilled martini, coupe, or old-fashioned glass.
If desired, garnish with a strawberry and lemon wheel. Enjoy immediately!

Makes 1 drink.
