11 Words to Watch for When Eating Out

Unhealthy key words on the menu:

1. Fried

Fried is probably the most obvious red-flag when you are trying to eat healthy. Fried means that the food has been covered and cooked in oil, and this cooking process adds a lot of extra, bad fat to the food.

2. Crumbed, battered or breaded

Crumbed, battered or breaded mean that the food has had a coating added to it. Usually, these foods are also fried. For example, battered fish is covered in a batter and then deep fried. Through this process, these foods have extra carbohydrates and fats added to them.

3. Marinated

The degree of unhealthiness of marinated food depends on the type of marinade. There can be perfectly harmless marinades of herbs, spices and vinegars, or there can be marinades full of sugar and oils. I tend to avoid foods that have been marinated because usually restaurants use marinades full of sugar and fats because they taste better.

4. Smothered

Smothered is an instant red-flag for me. Smothered usually means covered in some type of sauce, cheese or other topping. Depending on the food, this can add a lot of unwanted carbohydrates and bad fats to a meal.


Healthy key words on the menu:

5. Grilled

Grilling food usually means that the food has been cooked in minimal oil on a hot surface. Grilling cooks the food without adding any extra fat or carbohydrates to the food.

6. Blackened

Blackened is basically the same as grilled, except before the food is placed on the hot surface it is covered in herbs and spices. Blackened food is delicious and full of flavor, without the added nasties.

7. Baked

Baked foods, especially fish, are delicious. The food is cooked in an oven. Because it is baked in an oven, oil is not necessary and is minimally used. Baked foods have time to develop rich flavors in the oven and often get a crisp and delicious outer layer.

8. Roasted

Roasting is basically the same as baking. Roasting is generally the term used for meats such as beef, turkey and pork that have been cooked for a long period in an oven. Roasting develops rich flavors in the food and the fat cooks and drains out of the meat.

9. Steamed

Steamed is a method of cooking most often used for fish and vegetables. It involves putting the vegetables or fish above a boiling pot of water and using the steam to cook the food. This process cooks the food without any oil or other nasties. Steaming also keeps vegetables tasting fresher than other cooking methods.

10. Seared

Seared foods are foods that have been cooked on a very hot surface for a short period. The food is cooked with minimal or no oil and has a very short cooking time so that it does not absorb as much oil as other cooking methods.

11. Raw

Raw is probably the most obvious term and does not require much explanation. Raw foods are in the natural state and haven’t been cooked.

Working from home has a long list of benefits. You save time and money because you don’t have to commute, you don’t get mixed up with office politics, you can be more flexible with your hours and you can have your office set up however you like it.

Working on your own can sometimes mean it’s hard to get motivated however because you don’t have anyone watching over you or setting deadlines. If you work remotely or run your own business, below are some great tips for staying motivated when you work from home.

 

 

Have separate office space

It may be tempting to work from bed or the sofa, but try to set aside some separate office space where you can work properly. In order to improve productivity, this area should:

• Be free from distractions. If you can see or hear the television or other people who are home during the day, you’re going to get side-tracked. 

• Have proper office equipment. Try to set your home office up just as you would if you were going into a company every day. This means a proper desk, chair, telephone, files, stationery and any other supplies you may need.

 

 

Be organised

If you’re easily distracted, you’re going to jump at any opportunity to pop out the house. Whether you’ve run out of milk, you need a stapler, the printer has run out of ink or you’re hungry, prepare for any eventuality so you don’t have any excuses to procrastinate.

 

 

Take breaks

While regular distractions will make it difficult to get anything done, it is still important to take breaks throughout the day. When we work from home it can be tempting to go too far the other way and you may end up sitting at your desk for 10 hours without taking a break.

Allow yourself a proper lunch break so you can leave the house for a bit and there’s no harm in taking quick five-minute breaks to make a cup of tea throughout the day either.

 

 

De-clutter

Whether you work from home or in an office, clutter is a productivity killer. Whether you have piles of paperwork on your desk, office supplies laying around or the rubbish bin is overflowing, clutter can have a very negative impact on our productivity levels for a number of reasons:

 

• It limits the brain’s ability to process information and wears down your ability to focus. 

• It overloads your senses which causes you to feel stressed out and anxious. 

• You end up wasting valuable time looking for items which could have been located easily if you weren’t surrounded by so much mess. 

• It can even have a negative impact on your health. Clutter makes it hard to clean your area properly which can aggravate allergies and asthma. 

• Because clutter increases your stress hormone, believe it or not, it can even lead to weight gain.

 

If you’re finding it hard to get motivated because you’re surrounded by so much clutter, spend some time getting your office the way it should be. Anything that you can’t throw away, think about putting into self storage. This is particularly handy when it comes to things like paperwork which you can’t throw away but only need to access a couple times a year.

Juice Plus+ is a whole food nutritional supplement that contains phytonutrients (plant nutrients) from 30 fruits, vegetables, berries and grains in the form of very concentrated extract powders that are taken in the form of a capsule. Juice Plus+ is made by a company located in Memphis, TN called The Juice Plus Company.

The Juice Plus Company is a company that has operated with the same CEO (Jay Martin) since its inception in the early 1980s. The company market Juice Plus+ through the direct sales method, so you won’t see any of their ads on the TV anytime soon. What is interesting about this product and company is the amount of university-level research that has been performed using the Juice Plus+ product. There have been more than 20 studies performed using name brand Juice Plus+ that have been published in prestigious medical and scientific journals.

No other nutritional supplement has had this number of name-brand research studies published before. What is even more remarkable is that all of these studies showed positive health benefits. Some people reading this might be thinking that any company can just buy research studies like this, so it is not very impressive. So what makes this body of research different is that these studies were performed using the “Gold Standard” of research. Gold standard research puts measures in place that make it impossible to “buy” or otherwise influence.

To be considered gold standard research, a study must be double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomised, and cross-over. Let’s clarify what each of these terms mean in a research setting.

 

  • Placebo Controlled: A placebo is usually a sugar or otherwise inert pill that looks exactly like the pill being studied. A placebo is used to measure the effects a person experiences by “thinking” they are taking the pill, when in fact they are just taking the sugar placebo.
  • Double-Blinded: When a research study is double-blinded, neither the research project’s observers nor the participants know whether they are taking the real thing or just the sugar pill. This serves to ensure that personal bias does not affect both the observer’s observations and conclusions or the study participant’s perception of the pill’s effects.
  • Randomised: Randomisation is important to a study to ensure that the changes seen during the study are not the result of how the study participants were chosen. It ensures there is no bias in how the participants are selected.
  • Cross-Over: A study that has a crossover has the placebo and the Juice Plus+ groups switch groups so that both groups have a chance to take both the placebo and the real thing. Usually there is a washout period in between so that the group taking the real thing has a chance to flush it out of their body before switching to the other group. This is used to ensure that the Juice Plus+

 

When a study is performed using these measures in place, you can be ensured that the results are honest and believable. Most companies do not structure studies of their own products like this. They want to be sure they get the results they are looking for so their product looks good. The fact that The Juice Plus Company has performed so much research on Juice Plus+ and the results have all been positive tells me that Juice Plus+ is a supplement worth looking into.

With many different social media platforms to choose from, your head may be spinning and you could be confused about which ones to use and why you would use them. 

Network marketing is very much a business of influence and emotion. If people don’t feel like working with you or they don’t feel like buying from you then they won’t. There are plenty of other people they can find your product and service through and that is why you want to use social as an asset to get in front of more people and help them choose you.

 

Building Know, Like & Trust

If people feel like they know, like and trust you because they have been following you on social, they are much more likely to buy from you than someone they just met. Social media can be used to share inspiring messages, family photos, dreams, and goals. Share these things with people and you they will be more likely to do business with you. This is one of the ways to make social an asset for your business.

 

Getting In Front of More Eyeballs

Social media helps you get in front of more people. Having a consistent social presence will help you leverage this virtual real estate to share your message with people. Instead of having to run around all over the place in your car, you can find people through social media and generate sales and new team members online.

It is very simple to be able to build social media into an asset but you have to be consistent. You at least want to post once a day so that you can stay top of mind with your audience.
