Review: Sneakz Protein Powder

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
I don’t consume protein powders all that often these days, now that I’m trying to base most of my day around whole foods. But I do believe protein powders have their place and can be helpful. I used to be a diehard protein powder fan, and I had protein smoothies after every run to help with quick muscle recovery.

But then I did the Health Made Simple plan and realized that I don’t need THAT much protein every day. I learned that a handful of walnuts or flax seeds is plenty for my level of activity. I’m not body building after all. However, there are days when I put in a REALLY hard effort (like a long run of 10 to 20 miles) or days that I know I’m not going to be eating well (like when traveling or just really, really busy). On those days, I still consume protein powder.

And it was on one of those days recently (pretty sure I was extra busy that day!) that I tried Sneakz Organic Chocolate Protein Powder in a smoothie with banana, spinach, and extra cocoa powder.

Sneakz sent me this powder to review months ago, right as I was starting my whole foods journey. So it took me awhile to try it. But I’ve had it a few times since then, like last weekend after a 7-mile treadmill run that left me feeling weak and sluggish all day. Pretty sure I overheated a bit on that run, and I was getting over a cold too. I figured I could use a protein boost that day!

Sneakz, when mixed with liquid, tastes like chocolate milk. But it’s made with a simple blend of whole organic foods, including sweet potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, and beets (1/2 serving of veggies in every scoop). Plus, it has 14 grams of pea protein, probiotics, and 10 essential amino acids.

Sneakz does contain some organic cane sugar, which I think some protein powder fans would prefer. But I’m firmly in the stevia camp for my protein powders. Consuming sugar in my smoothie makes me feel like I’m having dessert for breakfast (and I’d rather save dessert for dessert time!). But the sugar does make it taste pretty great. This would be an awesome product to deliver protein and veggie nutrition to picky kids!

Sandwiches! Bagels! Tacos! Treats!

Sandwiches! Bagels! Tacos! Treats!

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
Last Tuesday, I made the best Air-fried Avocado Tacos! I made avocado fries in the air fryer and topped with cashew cream and veggies. And I made some Chipotle Lime Street Corn in the air fryer as well. Taco Tuesday!!

I’m sticking with whole foods almost all the time at home these days, and I’m saving my plant meat and junk food splurges for eating out. But sometimes, a girl needs some Beet Puffs. These Vegan Rob’s puffs are made with pretty wholesome ingredients (like whole grain sorghum flour), so as junk food goes, they’re not bad. And I had a healthy BLT with Tofu Bacon on sprouted grain. So I feel pretty good about this meal.

Here’s a totally whole foods-based Tofu Stir-fry I made last night for dinner with broccoli, bell pepper, and mushrooms over quinoa. I feel best when I’m eating this way.

But treats in moderation are a-okay! My friend Don of Lulu’s Food has gone back to selling his vegan baked goods at the Cooper-Young Farmers Market. He posted a mouth-watering menu of vegan croissants and savory buns, as well as cookies, baguettes, pita, and morning buns, on Instagram the night before this Saturday’s market. It opened at 9 am, and I was there by 9:15 am. And he was almost SOLD OUT!! All that was left were cinnamon morning buns and cookies. I opted for a Chocolate Chip Cookie and a Morning Bun (both AMAZING!!). Next week, I’m getting there right at 9 am!

And finally, here’s a Whole Wheat Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese from Otherlands coffee shop that I ate yesterday morning. I had to get some freelance writing done, and I work best outside my house. I enjoyed this with a soy latte. Good stuff. They use Dave’s Bagels (the best!).

Una mascarilla en casa es una de las mejores recetas.

0

Todos quieren ser hermosos. Alguien sirve fanáticamente esta idea y usa todo tipo de cosméticos, gastando grandes sumas en ellos. Y alguien lavó un poco de agua por la mañana y fue a conquistar el mundo. Estos son dos extremos, entre los cuales debes tratar de encontrar un punto medio. Asegúrate de cuidar tu cara, cuello, manos. Y esto se puede hacer de manera bastante económica en casa. En este artículo escribiré las mejores recetas: mascarillas que realmente funcionen.

Muchas chicas saben y quieren hacer procedimientos similares en el hogar, pero a menudo no hay suficiente tiempo o simplemente pereza. Por lo tanto, le insto a que no sea perezoso, sino que dedique su media hora favorita, lo que resultará en horas de placer con su cara. Esto es especialmente cierto para aquellos que tienen más de 25 años de edad. A partir de esta edad, debes comenzar a hacer tratamientos faciales para mantener a tu juventud el mayor tiempo posible.

Una gran ventaja de la atención domiciliaria es su naturalidad. La máscara se hace cada vez fresca a partir de productos naturales. No hay química de miedo. Y el costo es mucho más bajo que la compra de fondos, sin mencionar los procedimientos del salón.

Reglas para aplicar una mascarilla en casa.
– Antes de usar cualquier mascarilla casera, debes limpiar la piel con tu limpiador facial para que todos los nutrientes puedan ser absorbidos por los poros limpios. También será bueno que se limpie con agua tónica o micelar.
– Se aplican mascarillas a lo largo de las líneas de masaje. Mira el diagrama visual de cómo aplicar algo en la cara. La mayoría de las mezclas no se aplican en el área alrededor de los ojos. Para ello, utiliza herramientas especiales para esta zona. Este artículo tiene las recetas correctas.
– Es importante cuando se usan máscaras con miel para realizar un procedimiento de prueba de alergia. Para hacer esto, colóquese una pequeña máscara en la muñeca, espere 15 minutos y lávela. Si no hay enrojecimiento, descamación y otros efectos desagradables, siéntase libre de aplicar esa máscara en su cara.
– Los productos de mascarilla deben ser frescos y de buena calidad. Después de todo, esto es alimento para su piel, no lo alimente con basura.

Máscara de Sophia Loren.
Sophia Loren es una diva famosa que logra lucir genial en 80 años. Ella comparte sus secretos en sus libros. Aquí y una nutrición adecuada, y ejercicios deportivos, y cuidados de belleza. La receta de una de las máscaras que puede rejuvenecer una cara está frente a usted.

Ingredientes:

gelatina – 3 cucharaditas
Leche – 50 gr.
miel – 3 cucharaditas.
glicerina – 3 cucharaditas.

1. La gelatina es un colágeno natural. Desafortunadamente, no puede causar la producción de su propio colágeno por la piel, pero puede rellenar las arrugas, haciendo que la piel sea más suave. Tiene cierto efecto lifting y aligeramiento. Verter la gelatina con leche fría y dejar actuar durante al menos 1 hora. Si lo desea, puede verterlo por la noche, ponerlo en la nevera (no olvide taparlo), y por la mañana hacer una máscara.

2. Cuando la gelatina se hinche bien, habrá una masa espesa. Debe fundirse en un baño de agua durante aproximadamente un minuto. Lo principal es agitar constantemente, no permitir que la leche hierva. Si la mezcla hierve, la gelatina perderá sus propiedades “mágicas”. Para fundir puedes usar un microondas. Solo caliente por 10 segundos primero y vea si la gelatina se ha disuelto. Revuelva y caliente un poco más si es necesario.

3. Poner miel y glicerina en la masa gelatinosa enfriada.
(Si es alérgico a la miel, reemplácelo con 2 cucharaditas de aceite de oliva (fuente de vitamina E) + 1 cucharadita de avena (endurece la piel).

4. Revuelva todo hasta que quede suave. Esta máscara se aplica en una cara limpia con un pincel en tres capas. Primero aplique la primera capa, espere a que se seque. Luego las capas segunda y tercera se aplican de la misma manera. Por cierto, es posible aplicarlo no solo en la cara, sino también en los brazos, cuello, zona de escote.

5. Es necesario mantener la máscara durante 10 minutos, luego remojarla con agua tibia, ya que la gelatina se secará y formará una película. Lava y aplica tu crema de día.

Esta máscara se puede almacenar durante 3 días en el refrigerador.

La primera semana puedes hacer esta máscara todos los días. Entonces – una vez por semana. Tal curso dará un efecto de elevación notable.

What I Ate When I Was Sick

What I Ate When I Was Sick

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
I’m back with a special soup edition of "Stuff I Ate." Late last week, I came down with a cold. I rarely get sick, which I like to attribute to my daily fire cider shots. Who knows if that actually helps boost immunity? But I tell myself it does. It seems like everyone I know is either sick now or has been sick over the past few weeks, and I guess it was just my turn.

I felt it coming on last Thursday, the same day I had lunch plans at Global Café with a few co-workers. Global Café is in Crosstown Concourse, where I work, and they provide jobs to refugees and immigrants and give them a space to showcase their countries’ cuisines. I’m a huge fan of the Nepalese booth, where I typically opt for the amazing veggie chow mein. But since I was feeling a little funky, I went with the Thukpa Noodle Soup. This has a spicy, garlicky broth with noodles, veggies, jalapenos, red onion, and cilantro. So very good. I will probably always order this when I’m sick now.

By Friday, I was feeling AWFUL. Definitely the worst day of my cold. I’d planned to have leftover lentil sloppy joes for dinner that night, but that didn’t even sound good. What did sound good was No Chicken Noodle Soup and a Grilled Cheeze. So I dumped a can of Amy’s No Chicken on the stove and made a quick grilled cheeze with Daiya and Earth Balance. I always keep a few cans of Amy’s No Chicken in the pantry for emergencies. Doesn’t look appetizing but, trust me, it’s what you need when you need it. 
I was feeling a little better over the weekend but still very congested. Paul and I were signed up to run the MRTC Winter Off-Road Series Overton Park 3K on Sunday, and I managed to run despite feeling icky. A 3K is less than 2 miles, so I knew I could do it no matter how bad I felt. But afterward, I just wanted to sit on the couch and watch a movie and eat soup. We did stop for beers at Crosstown Brewing Co. first, but I eventually got my wish. Takeout Mandu Guk from Crazy Noodle and Birdbox on Netflix (I loved it!). The mandu guk has veggie dumplings, Korean rice cakes, veggies, and broth. Spiced up with a little sriracha.
I’m much better now, but I’m not feeling 100% yet. Still have lots of snot, and my nose is all raw from blowing it 50 million times. Plus, it’s cold AF outside, so soup is still calling me. Today for lunch, I got the Thai Green Curry Bowl from the cafe at Crosstown Arts, where I work. This isn’t soup, but it’s soupy so it counts. Brown rice, tempeh, squash, eggplant, kimchi, and enoki mushrooms in a coconut curry broth. Perfection. Washed down with an iced chai tea.

Ahoana ny fomba fanaovana ny masony any an-trano – dingana isan-karazany amin’ny fomba fitsaboana

Ho an’ny vehivavy iray izay mijery ny bika aman’endriny dia mitazona saron-tava ao an-trano ny filàna mahatsapa, indrindra fa ny ankamaroan’ny cosmetologists dia manaiky ny herin’ny fanasitranana.

Misy fitsipika sasantsasany izay tsy maintsy arahina mba hahazoana tombony be indrindra amin’ny fikarakarana. Ny zavatra voalohany tokony atao dia ny manadio ny tarehy alohan’ny fampiharana azy. Noho izany, hitombo ny paozina, ary hihena haingana ny sakafo. Tsy mandratra mialoha ny fikarakarana ny famafazana, manadio ny hoditra.

Aorian’izany, dia reraka ao anaty lavaka izy, ampio 1 tsp. hydroéthylamidon. Ny fanosorana vokatra dia ampiharina amin’ny hoditra madio mandritra ny antsasak’adiny, avy eo dia voasasa. Ho an’ny hoditra maina dia manamboatra saron-tavy misy rameva: 2 tbsp. L. voninkazo miorina ao anaty vera misy rano marary, manindry antsasak’adiny, manisika 1 tsp. Aloe juice (glycerine dia mety ho toy izany ihany) ary ampiharina antsasak’adiny.

Ity saron-tava ity dia ampiasaina amin’ny tranga izay ilaina maika mba hanatsarana ny endrikao. Ny mofomamy, izay manampy amin’ny famerenana haingana ho an’ny reraka hoditra, dia tonga lafatra amin’izany. Tsara kokoa raha maitso matevina, maotina, fa ny fivarotana (vaovao) dia hanao. Voasary ny hoditra, avy eo dia asiana antsasak’adiny. Sasao amin’ny rano mangatsiaka ilay sarontava. Ho an’ny vokatra tononina, voankazo voasesitra na tsaramaso voankazo novolena ho siramamy.

Aza matahotra, raha mivadika ho mena ny tarehy, mitranga izany rehefa mitombo ny fifanakalozana.

Isang mukha mask sa bahay ay isa sa mga pinakamahusay na mga recipe.

Gusto nilang lahat na maging maganda. Isang tao ang nagsisilbi sa ideyang ito at gumagamit ng lahat ng uri ng mga pampaganda, na gumagastos ng malaking halaga sa kanila. At ang isang tao ay naghugas ng tubig sa umaga – at nagpunta upang lupigin ang mundo. Ang mga ito ay dalawang extremes, sa pagitan ng kung saan kailangan mong subukan upang makahanap ng isang gitnang lupa. Tiyaking alagaan ang iyong mukha, leeg, kamay. At ito ay maaaring gawin medyo isang paraan ng badyet sa bahay. Sa artikulong ito ay isusulat ko ang pinakamahusay na mga recipe: mukha mask na talagang gumagana.

Maraming kababaihan ang nakakaalam at nais na gawin ang mga katulad na pamamaraan sa tahanan, ngunit madalas na hindi sapat ang panahon o katamaran. Samakatuwid, hinimok ko sa iyo na huwag maging tamad, ngunit gastusin sa iyong sarili ang iyong paboritong kalahating oras, na kung saan ay magreresulta sa mga oras ng kasiyahan sa iyong mukha. Ito ay totoo lalo na sa mga mahigit sa 25 taong gulang. Mula sa edad na ito kailangan mong simulan ang paggawa ng mga facial upang mapanatili ang iyong kabataan hangga’t maaari.

Ang isang malaking plus ng pag-aalaga sa bahay ay ang pagiging natural nito. Ang mask ay ginagawa tuwing sariwa mula sa natural na mga produkto. Walang nakakatakot na kimika. At ang gastos ay mas mababa kaysa sa pagbili ng mga pondo, hindi upang mailakip ang mga pamamaraan ng salon.

Mga panuntunan para sa pag-apply ng mask ng mukha sa bahay.
– Bago gamitin ang anumang mga homemade mask, kailangan mong linisin ang balat gamit ang iyong facial cleanser upang ang lahat ng mga nutrients ay maaring masustansya sa malinis na mga pores. Magiging mabuti din na malinis na may tonic o micellar na tubig.
– Ang mga maskara ay inilalapat sa mga linya ng massage. Tingnan ang visual na diagram kung paano mag-apply ng isang bagay sa mukha. Ang karamihan ng mga blends ay hindi inilalapat sa lugar sa paligid ng mga mata. Upang gawin ito, gumamit ng mga espesyal na tool para sa zone na ito. Ang artikulong ito ay may tamang mga recipe.
– Mahalaga kapag gumagamit ng mga masks na may honey upang magsagawa ng isang pamamaraan ng allergy test. Upang gawin ito, maglagay ng isang maliit na maskara sa iyong pulso, maghintay ng 15 minuto at hugasan. Kung walang pamumula, pagbabalat at iba pang hindi kanais-nais na epekto, huwag mag-atubiling mag-apply tulad ng maskara sa iyong mukha.
– Ang mga produkto ng mask ay dapat na sariwa at may magandang kalidad. Pagkatapos ng lahat, ito ay pagkain para sa iyong balat, huwag pakanin ito ng basura.

Mask ni Sophia Loren.
Si Sophia Loren ay isang bantog na diva na namamahala upang maging mahusay sa loob ng 80 taon. Ibinahagi niya ang kanyang mga lihim sa kanyang mga libro. Dito at tamang nutrisyon, at sports exercise, at beauty care. Ang recipe para sa isa sa mga maskara na makakapagbigay muli ng mukha ay nasa harap mo.

Mga sangkap:

gelatin – 3 tsp.
gatas – 50 gr.
honey – 3 tsp.
gliserin – 3 tsp.

1. Gelatin ay isang likas na collagen. Sa kasamaang palad, hindi ito maaaring maging sanhi ng produksyon ng sarili nitong collagen sa pamamagitan ng balat, ngunit maaari itong punan ang mga wrinkles, na mas malinis ang balat. Mayroon itong pag-aangat at pagbibigay ng epekto. Ibuhos ang gulaman na may malamig na gatas at umalis nang hindi bababa sa 1 oras. Kung gusto mo, maaari mong ibuhos sa gabi, ilagay sa refrigerator (huwag kalimutan upang masakop), at sa umaga gumawa ng mask.

2. Kapag ang gelatin swells na rin, magkakaroon ng isang makapal na masa. Ito ay dapat na matunaw sa isang paliguan ng tubig sa loob ng isang minuto. Ang pangunahing bagay ay pukawin ang patuloy, hindi pinapayagan ang gatas na pakuluan. Kung ang pinaghalong boils, mawawala ang gelatin ang “magic” properties nito. Para sa pagkatunaw maaari kang gumamit ng microwave. Lamang mainit-init para sa 10 segundo muna at tingnan kung ang gelatin ay dissolved. Gumalaw at magpainit nang kaunti kung kinakailangan.

3. Ilagay ang honey at gliserin sa cooled gelatinous mass.
(Kung ikaw ay allergic sa honey, palitan ito ng 2 tsp ng langis ng oliba (pinagmulan ng bitamina E) + 1 tsp ng otmil (humahadlang sa balat).

4. Gumalaw nang hanggang makinis. Ang mask na ito ay inilapat sa isang malinis na mukha na may isang brush sa tatlong layer. Unang ilapat ang unang amerikana, hintayin itong matuyo. Pagkatapos ay ang ikalawa at ikatlong layer ay inilapat sa parehong paraan. Sa pamamagitan ng ang paraan, ito ay posible na mag-aplay hindi lamang sa mukha, ngunit sa mga armas, leeg, decollete lugar.

5. Kailangan mong i-hold ang mask para sa 10 minuto, pagkatapos ay ibabad ito sa mainit-init na tubig, dahil ang gelatin ay tuyo at bumuo ng isang pelikula. Hugasan at ilapat ang iyong day cream.

Maaaring maimbak ang mask na ito para sa 3 araw sa refrigerator.

Sa unang linggo maaari mong gawin ang mask na ito araw-araw. Pagkatapos – isang beses sa isang linggo. Ang gayong kurso ay magbibigay ng kapansin-pansin na nakakataas na epekto.

Some Breakfasts I Ate

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.

Here are some things I’ve eaten for breakfast lately. I’m still all up in my smoothie game on week days, a habit I started when I was doing the Health Made Simple meal plan back in October/November. Most days, I drink my smoothie while I’m getting ready for work.

But for part of last week and earlier this week, I was fighting off a cold and opted to skip my workouts in favor of extra sleep. That meant I had time to sit down to breakfast, but I still wanted to have smoothies for nutrition. So what’s a girl to do?

Smoothie Bowls

! Here’s one from yesterday with a base of banana, pineapple, strawberry, and spinach, topped with banana, walnuts, coconut, and chia.

Most of my week day smoothies are pretty simple — banana, water or almond milk, other frozen fruit, walnuts or flax seeds, spinach. But Megan included this Moon Juice Beauty Dust in my holiday gift, so I added that to a 

Berry Banana Green Smoothie

one day!

On weekends, I tend to have a heartier sit-down breakfast (typically on my couch while watching Netflix). I love bagels, but I’m trying to focus on whole foods. I found these Smart Bagel whole wheat bagel thins at Sprouts and love them. They’re certainly not as awesome as REAL bagels, but they’ll do. Very good with a

Tofu Scramble

! I spread a little Daiya cream cheese on this one because we had some leftover from the holidays.

And here’s a Whole Wheat Bagel with Berry Jam & Seitan Bacon. I’ve not been buying much plant meats lately (trying to save those for special occasions), but this Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon was leftover from Christmas breakfast.

This past weekend, I took a more whole foods-y route and made Tofu Bacon in the air fryer, served with more bagels (spread with BE-Hive garlic soy cheese, locally-ish made in Nashville).

And finally, here’s a

Breakfast Sandwich

! A fun weekend breakfast with tofu egg, Benevolent Bacon (again, leftover), and spinach. Not quite as satisfying as a sandwich on a fluffy

Dave’s Bagel

but still very tasty.

Stuff I Ate

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a post of random meals, and I’ve got lots of photos in the back log. I’ll share a few tonight and more throughout the week.

Here’s a meal I ate just after Christmas. I had some leftover Crispy Tofu from Mulan, which I’d ordered on Christmas night. It’s a cornstarch-coated, deep-fried salt and pepper tofu dish with minimal veggies, so I upped the veggie game and mixed it with sauteed broccoli, squash, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Served over brown rice instead of the white rice it came with. I always try to healthify leftover Chinese takeout on day two.

A couple days after Christmas, my friend Susan and I took a trip out to IKEA. It’s not that far from Midtown, but it always feels like an adventure driving out east for a big IKEA day. It takes hours to work your way through the store, so we needed fuel. We grabbed the new IKEA Veggie Dogs at the concession booth in the front of the store. Y’all, these are 75 cents! The dog is made from veggies and tastes similar to the famous veggie balls. They’re topped with pickled cabbage and fried onions!
Mid-way through the store, we stopped in the cafe for IKEA Veggie Balls! Served with quinoa and steamed veggies. So good. We also bought bags of frozen balls to take home. 
I picked up this Munsbit Oat Smoothie in the IKEA food store. It had apple, pear, and ginger and was perfect for a post-run snack last week.
Here’s a bowl of Tofu Ramen I enjoyed for breakfast one morning over the holiday break.
And finally, this is the Green Salad at the cafe at Crosstown Arts. It may look like an ordinary salad, but this is thing of beauty. The homemade dressing that lightly coats the mixed greens, radish, green apple, and toasted pepitas is indescribably good. It’s a big side salad, so I love to order this when I bring a small lunch to work that warrants a side dish.

The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.

Most vegan cookbooks these days are very tailored to one specific food genre or cooking method, which is awesome when you’re looking for a specific kind of recipe. But what if you don’t know what you want. That’s where

The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

comes in handy.

This book — collectively written by Emily von Euw, Kathy Hester, Linda and Alex Meyer, Marie Reginato, Celine Steen, and Amber St. Peter — contains 600 vegan recipes ranging from pasta to bowls to soups to sandwiches. Recipes are organized into Main Dishes, Slow Cooker/Instant Pot/Air Fryer, 30 Minutes or Less, Appetizers/Snacks/Sides, Soups/Salads, and Desserts.

There are only a few pictures, arranged in a spread in the middle of the book, so you’ll have to use your imagination on most. But the names are pretty descriptive — think Oreo-ish Tarts: Vanilla Whipped Coco Cream with Chocolate Cookie Crust or BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich with Slaw and Caramelized Onions.

I’ve only had a chance to try one recipe so far, but it was perfection. These

Air-Fried Tofu Rancheros

kept me satisfied for several meals throughout the holiday break.

The only thing that’s air-fried is the tofu, which is coated in taco spices before frying. And they have baking instructions too in case you don’t have an air fryer. The tortilla is toasted in the oven with vegan cheese and black beans. Once it comes out of the oven, it’s topped with raw, shredded zucchini, squash, and carrot, the air-fried tofu, and chopped tomato. I added hot sauce and extra salsa too.

Other recipes I have my eye on: Kimchi Tofu Scramble, Marinated Portobello Cashew Cheeseburgers with Herbs & Tomatoes, Mushroom Fajitas, Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta, Vegan Pretzel Bites, Vegan BLT Salad with Smoky Spicy Mayo, and a recipe titled A Smoothie for Emotional Strength (because who doesn’t need that????).
