“The perfect way to spend a couple hours on a rainy weekend afternoon. Beautiful building on beautiful grounds with a smallish but very enjoyable collection.”
“The Kimbell is my absolute favorite museum in the DFW area. The building itself is amazingly gorgeous. It is actually just as aesthetically pleasing as the art inside. I have been here to see a lot of their special exhibits. This time it was the Art and Love in Renaissance Italy exhibit. Admission to their exhibits are usually around $15 but they are free for members and then you just pay $3 each for the audio tours. Then you go in and get cultured.”
Did you ever think that weight gain and germs could be connected? A new study is saying that there is a connection between the weight you gain and the amount of germs around you. Don’t start freaking out just yet. Go wash your hands and come back if it makes you feel better.
So, scientists from Emory University in Atlanta, who published a study in the Journal Science, say that certain bacteria could play a role in the obesity epidemic. Isn’t that scary, maybe there is a reason why your mother always use to tell you to wash your hands before you ate your food. Their study of mice found that specific bacteria that may cause gut inflammation may also increase appetite and possibly play a role in weight gain.
In another words, germs are probably the reason why you get so hungry all the time. “Previous research has suggested that bacteria can influence how well energy is absorbed from food, but these findings demonstrate that intestinal bacteria can actually influence appetite,” the lead researcher said to Reuters Health.
This might gross you out, but did you know that the average person carries about 5 pounds of bacteria in their gut. A little disgusting, but it’s normal according to doctors and researchers.
Make sure to wash your hands as much as possible. Especially, before you eat any kind of food.
Do you think Bactria could be the link that causes obesity?
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! Have you had an Irish meal today yet? In honor of St. Patrick’s’ Day you should take some time out of your day to enjoy a classic Irish dish. Below are ingredients for a Fruited Irish Oatmeal I am sure you will enjoy. If you like fruit and oatmeal you will love this traditional Irish breakfast. Start off your St. Patrick’s Day with oatmeal filled with cranberries, raisins, and apricots. You can top it in many different things, such as maple syrup, brown sugar, chopped nuts, and/or milk.
Remember to only use steel-cut Irish oats, because no other type will stand up to a lengthy cooking time.
All You Need:
2 cups steel-cut Irish oats
5 cups water
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup snipped dried apricots
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Brown sugar or maple syrup
Chopped toasted walnuts or pecans
In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine oats, water, apple juice, cranberries, raisins, apricots, the 1/4 cup maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
Serve oatmeal with brown sugar or additional maple syrup, chopped nuts, and milk. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
To reheat, place a single serving of oatmeal in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, covered, on 100-percent power (high) for 1 minute; stir. Cook, covered, for 15 to 30 seconds more or until heated through.
If you are like me you use the George Foreman Grill for everything. I usually keep it simple and cook hamburgers, hot dogs, grill cheese sandwiches and chicken breast on mine. I found this YouTube video that shows you have to make grilled shrimp. I honestly think I will try this next week. I think this video is really helpful for people who don’t really cook.
Right now I am officially stressed out. I have the worst headache in the world. Have you ever had a headache so bad that you thought your head was going to explode? Well, that is how I feel right now. I hate being stressed out. It not only makes me mentally sick it makes me physically sick.
How do you deal with stress?
When I’m stressed out I tend to eat a lot as well. I know it’s a really bad habit to have, but I can’t help it. I want to be able to eat when I am stressed and not gain any weight.
I am sure you have been there as well. You wake up on the wrongs side of the bed and from there on out you have a hectic morning. By lunch time all you want to do is inhale everything in the lunch room.
After searching for ways to deal with stress I ran across this article that list 5 Stress Busting Super foods. This article helped me out a lot!
Now I can eat as much as I want when I am stressed out. The foods listed in this article are not only healthy for me, but they will also help to reduce my stress. I would do about anything right now to get rid of all the stress I am feeling. I will just replace my chicken, cookies and soda with almonds, yogurt and sweet potatoes!
Do you take vitamins daily? I’ve heard taking daily vitamins is good for you. I normally take vitamins B-12, Iron and C. According to this article one in three people take supplements regularly. However, a lot of people might not be taking the right kind of vitamins. Did you know women take more vitamins than men? If you were to look into a woman’s medicine cabinet you would probably find supplements to boost energy, ward off infections, and to help with specific health problems. Another question you might ask yourself is do vitamins and supplements really work?
