My 3 Favorite Sugar Swaps

gettyimages-473611878-612x612.jpg

As you do your holiday baking this year, consider making an easy swap for a healthier alternative to regular sugar.

#1 – 🍎 Apple Sauce
Swap your sugar for organic apple sauce in your baking recipes. Not only does it add sweetness to recipes, but it does so with significantly fewer calories than sugar: 1 cup applesauce for 1 cup sugar. However, because applesauce is a wet ingredient, reduce the amount of another liquid, such as milk or water, by one quarter.

#2 – 🥥 Coconut Sugar
Coconut sugars has the extra added amazing benefits of minerals like iron, zinc, calcium and potassium, along with some short-chain fatty acids, polyphenols, and antioxidants. It is unrefined, meaning it comes straight from nature, rather than undergoing an extensive refining process. It has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar as much. It contains a fiber called inulin, which can slow glucose absorption and feed your healthy gut bacteria. Coconut sugar can be substituted 1:1 for any white or brown sugar you would normally use in baking, and tastes delicious!

#4 – 🌱 Stevia (the real 100% Stevia kind)
Stevia is one of the more popular low-carb and zero cal sweeteners. It’s not toxic to our bodies because it is made from a plant.

Weight Loss Motivation Tips

giphy

◼️Create goals but make them manageable. Don’t set a goal that’s likely far in the future and don’t set one that’s to easy either. You’ll find that your goals may change over time, so make them small and short term.

◼️Imagine a fitter, healthier you. Imagine yourself fitting into those skinny jeans, or crossing that finish line. Focusing on actually accomplishing your goals will keep negativity at bay and allow you to push forward. Practice visualization for just 10 minutes a day simply by closing your eyes and picturing yourself getting healthier and slimmer, keying in on how you look and feel, and imagining a more confident, energized, and proud version of yourself.

◼️Always grocery shop with a list, and stick to the list!

◼️If you are going to indulge, remember the “rule of one”. One scoop, one piece, one bit, etc…

◼️Prep ahead. If you know you’re doing something that’s burning a lot of calories. Have a Shakeology available, or veggies & hummus. Healthy, low calorie, good nutrient snacks for when you feel like your energy’s been zapped and you get hangry!

◼️Create a vision board. It helps you to not lose sight of your goals during times you’re feeling low or struggling.

◼️Make a celebration as clothes get too big on you, donate them. This will make you feel good about your accomplishment and good about helping others from the sowing the seeds of your accomplishment!

◼️Do it for YOU. Don’t do it for your boyfriend, or your husband. Don’t do it to get that guy to notice you. You think that’s a real personal motivator, but it’s not. You have to do it for yourself. Because YOU want change, because YOU want better health.

◼️Don’t see rewards in the form of food or desert. Your rewards shouldn’t be food focused, ever. Let rewards be a new top, one size lower. Or go get your hair done, or a mani pedi. Massages are an awesome reward for working your body hard!

 

Just Let It Go

In my own personal quest to downsize and get rid of junk I started a list for myself but thought I’d share with my fellow bloggers!

  1. Take-out menus. Why keep these? You can look the menu up online.
  2. Packets from everywhere, fast food places, pizza delivery, Chinese delivery, etc…
  3. Duplicates of most kitchen spoons, tongs, etc…
  4. Candles that are near the bottom, face it, you won’t light it again.
  5. Broken magnets, you’ll never fix them.
  6. Speaking of magnets, get rid of the ad campaigns.
  7. Plastic cups you collect from places you visited. Like the zoo…
  8. Napkins that are laying around from fast food ventures.
  9. Excess mugs
  10. Any small appliances you haven’t used in a year
  11. Magazines you hoard
  12. Old water bottles
  13. The Tupperware that has no lids
  14. The sock that has no mate after the second laundry attempt to find and it’s still lost
  15. Lids that have no bottom
  16. The lone earring that has no match
  17. Old receipts
  18. Old ticket stubs
  19. Old cell phone accessories
  20. All those manuals you can just find online if you really need them
  21. Holey socks, holey shirts, holey pants…unless designed to be holey
  22. Old hair elastic ties
  23. Old bras – be kind to yourself and invest in new ones
  24. Old fragrances you never use
  25. Old makeup you never use
  26. Expired coupons
  27. Scratched non-stick cookware (it’s bad for you)
  28. Spare whatevers you haven’t used, ever
  29. Take the old ink cartridges to be recycled…finally
  30. Old cell phones
  31. Old computer parts
  32. Those shirts from races you never wear, make a quilt with them, or donate them!
  33. Those puzzles that have missing pieces, still…
  34. Pens with barely any ink
  35. Old eye ware
  36. Old product boxes
  37. Plastic hangers from the store
  38. Ugly undergarments and undergarments that don’t fit
  39. Books you’ve never read or will never read again
  40. Old spices – Spices don’t actually spoil but they lose their potency.  A good rule of thumb is 1-2 years for seasoning; 1-3 for herbs and ground spices; and up to 4 years for whole spices.
  41. Old nail polish
  42. Clothes that are more than 2 sizes too small or 2 sizes too big
  43. Little shampoo and conditioner bottles from a hotel you went to years ago

  48. Clothes you haven’t worn in over a year
  49. Old bills (get a shredder)
  50. Old paint
  51. Half of the 30 coffee cups you own
  52. Expired food
  53. Old keys
  54. Phone Books
  55. Remotes to things you no longer own
  56. Cords to things you no longer own
  57. Rusted anything

Emergency Aid Training (USA)

With tragic events like the one in Las Vegas Nevada, or in times of natural disasters like the hurricanes we’ve seen this year, any help civilians can give could save lives. I was looking this info up for myself, but thought I would just share these resources with all of you as well!

There are tons of basic first aid classes offered by the American Red Cross along with STOP THE BLEED, a national awareness campaign and a call to action.

I myself have been thinking about taking some emergency classes through the Red Cross. http://www.redcross.org/ux/take-a-class

Please click the link below to find out what you can do if you were in a life or death situation and how YOU could help in times of need. Something a small as a belt or tampon could save a person’s life.

Hurricane Preparedness

So much is happening not only in the US with disasters, but all over the world. Hurricanes, Wild Fires, Floods, etc… I haven’t felt much like blogging with all that’s happening here in the states. This is just the very beginning of hurricane season and already Hurricane Harvey has left a wake of destruction and insurmountable loss. These lists were created for disasters here in the United States, but dangerous natural disasters happen all over the globe so I don’t think list items change too many things from country to country, other than of course, emergency response numbers, radio stations, etc…

As the Eastern coastline, Puerto Rico, Florida, and all the gorgeous islands hunker down, evacuate and prepare for Hurricane Irma’s arrival I just wanted to put this out there. And just a note to remember that things like tornado’s and tsunami’s give little to no warning. But you can be prepared for those natural disasters that do give warning. Please evacuate if you can and don’t leave your furbabies behind! Don’t be stubborn, if you can get inland, get inland.’

Be safe!

XOXO
