Simple and Healthy Recipe – The Allergen Free Cake (well except for the nuts)

Oct 28, 2014 0

By: Jules Clancy

Have you noticed an alarming increase in the number of people you know who suffer from food allergies or intolerances?

If you think back ten years ago, catering for someone with special dietary requirements was pretty rare. Sure there were vegetarians and people who had religious dietary requirements and of course people who just didn’t like some things (like me and bananas). Apart from that, in my world it was rare to come across people allergic to food.

These days, it seems, food allergies and intolerances are almost becoming the norm. According to Wikipedia, 3-4% of the US population are effected by food allergies and anywhere from 2-20% are impacted by food intolerances. There are signs of this trend emerging – given that innocent peanut butter sandwiches are being banned from school lunchboxes .

In my day job, it’s pretty hard to avoid the impact of increasing awareness of food allergens has on the business. One of our factories is classified as ‘nut free’. Sales of our rice cookies – made without wheat – are on the rise. Intensive cleaning procedures are in place at the end of each production run for biscuits containing known ‘allergens’.

But the thing that has really brought it home to me is my dear old Dad.

When I was little, I fondly remember being able to rely on Dad to ‘get rid of’ anything we didn’t want to eat. When there were icky black jelly beans around, or you chose unwisely from the chocolate box – Dad was always there to polish off the offending item.

But a few years ago, when he was in the midst of depression and being treated for a number of problems, one doctor sent Dad for an allergy test. The results came back with a positive reaction to four little ingredients – wheat, dairy, eggs and peas.

At the time I remember thinking it was going to be tough. Savoury food has been surprisingly OK. Think fish or meat and salads or veg. We’ve even found some gluten free pasta that isn’t too bad. Sweet treats and dessert, on the other hand have been incredibly tough.

Sometimes, when I’ve been cooking for a crowd at the farm I serve a separate dessert for Dad. I usually feel a little guilty. No one ever gets as excited about Dad’s ‘special’ dessert as they do about the decadent treat the rest of us are enjoying.

This weekend, I’m happy to say, I tackled the challenge of a Dad compliant dessert. Something wheat-free, egg-free and dairy-free that would also taste delicious. Lets just thank heavens dark chocolate doesn’t contain dairy. Oh and that my sister discovered a lactose free yoghurt.

wheat, dairy, egg & pea-free supermoist chocolate cake

serves 8 – 12

Apart from being suitable for my Dad, the biggest bonus of this recipe is how good it tastes. Decadently moist and rich, it is a serious dessert cake – fit for the fanciest of dinner parties. Although it would be very remiss of me if I forgot to mention how easy it is to make. With only 6 ingredients and a two step food processor mixing method – it’s only fractionally more challenging than mixing up a cake out of a packet.

Voting Tips

Oct 27, 2014 0

United States General Elections November 4, 2014

 

Ensure that you are registered to vote. Call your city’s clerk or verify by calling 1-866-OUR-VOTE. If you are not registered, you can’t vote.
Be sure you know where you’re polling location is (It will say on your voting card). Remember that it may have changed since the last time you voted. If you can vote at more than one location, ask around to find out which one will be the least crowded.
Vote early if you can. Allow yourself plenty of time because the traffic might be bad and the lines may very well be long. Be sure you know what time your polls open so you can schedule it.
Remember to bring your ID information. Be sure you have a valid ID, passport and/or drivers license when you vote. Check with state requirements to find out what types of ID are required for you to vote in your state. If you’re not sure, bring EVERYTHING, including a photo ID.
It is not advisable to wear campaign shirts, pins and such when you go in to vote. Some states don’t allow this. Play it safe and dress neutral.
Wear comfortable shoes and dress ready to wait. If it’s cold outside, be sure you bring a coat. Maybe you can also bring something to read.
Avoid long lines by voting in the mid-morning or early afternoon. These are proven to be the lightest times of the voting day.
Ignore false rumors. Despite what you’ve heard, you can not be denied the right to vote because of a foreclosed home, being behind on child support payments, being a college student away from home or other frivolous reasons. But be careful. Read This
Help others to vote. Assist the elderly, the disabled and those without transportation.
Know your state laws with regard to your voting rights. Google your home state for applicable voting requirements. They vary by state. Time Off Laws
Be nice to the people voting for the opposing candidate. We are all brothers. Despite the animosity you see on TV (by many that know better), this is not the way to act. We must be respectful of those voting for another candidate.
If your ballot has little circles to fill in, be sure you fill them in solid with a dark pen.
Even if it gets late and the polls will close soon, if you are standing in line, you will get to vote. So make sure you at least have time to make it to that voter line. If they have problems finding your name, insist that they check again. If that still fails, insist on being allowed to cast a provisional ballot.
Report any voting problems or suspicions to Election Protection. Their number is 1-866-OUR-VOTE or visit 866ourvote.org.
Reference your ACLU website. There is a lot of information on voting rights specified by individual states. Here are the Voting Rights for Virginia for example.

Beauty care – 7 beauty tips

Oct 18, 2014 0

By Michael Fortomas

Let’s talk about inner beauty care. True beauty begins from the inside out. Outer beauty will only appear when you’ve practiced beauty within.

Beauty care is one of the problems that most women (and men) of all ages face. Beauty, or the lack of it, is pretty much a state of mind. . .well almost. There are beauty tips for Hair Styles, Nails, Skin Care, Body and Shape, Weight Loss, Exercise, Fashion and Style, Inner Beauty and more.

Let’s talk about inner beauty care. True beauty begins from the inside out. Outer beauty will only appear when you’ve practiced beauty within.

Knowing how and what to eat, can make a huge difference in how you feel. Improper eating habits can cause depression, overweight, illness and an overall lethargy.

Change your eating and exercising habits. You can do this. Do not try to change everything at once, unless you are just one of those rare individuals that can do that.

Beauty care starts with our diet. Diet does not mean just losing weight. Diet means the food you put in your daily eating habits.

1)A rule of thumb for eating habits are…don’t eat more calories than you consume. Don’t go one single day without doing something extra and physical for at least 30 minutes per day. This can be three ten minute walks. Or 30 minutes of vigorous aerobics, or 12 minutes of weight lifting and 18 minutes of walking.

2) Water, you need water. Try to add at least 4 more glasses of water to your daily diet. The rule of thumb for water is 8 glasses per day; and one extra for every ten pounds overweight you are.

3) Fats, you need to know about fats. There are different kinds of fats. Some fats are better for you than others. A rule of thumb on fats is, stay away from hydrogenated fats. These are fats that solidify. They are in store bought cakes, cookies, crackers, chips and even in bran muffins. Read the labels.

Choose fats that are polyunsaturated or fats such as olive oil. And, eat some fish to get some omega-3 fats. Carbohydrates – Are your immediate fuel source. An average is about 55 percent of your diet in carbohydrates. So, a rule of thumb is, figure your protein grams, get around 25% fat per day, and the rest would be in carbohydrates.The heavier you are, the more protein you need the less carbohydrates you will need.

Fats – try not to exceed more than 25 percent fat in your daily diet. 30 is fine, too. That does not mean you can’t have a junk food fast food hamburger… it just means that if you do eat that 55 percent fat burger that you are going to have to cut down on other fat filled foods for the rest of the day to balance it out.

4) Fiber – work up to getting 25 grams of Fiber per day

5) Protein – averages about 20 percent. Divide weight by 2.2 and multiply that by .8 to get the kilograms. For men it is averages as one gram per each kilogram of weight. So, a man would divide their weight in pounds 2.2 then multiply that by .10

6) Make exchanges gradually. Suppose you drink whole milk…work down to 2 percent. Maybe replacing two of your cups per day until you can completely change over. If you are on two percent milk, work down to 1 percent.

7) Add bran to your cereals for extra fiber. Do add it in your baking. You need to balance your diet with vegetables and fruits, too. Try adding different colors to your plate. Maybe an orange yam, and some green beans, to add color. The more variety of food colors, bring more variety of vitamins. Eat more raw foods.

Remember, exchange things, add things, and do it gradually and rememberComputer Technology Articles, live all things in life in moderation and soon you will be bouncy and vibrant and well on your way to living BEAUTIFULLY!

New Apple Ingredient Discovery Keeps Muscles Strong!

New Apple Ingredient Discovery Keeps Muscles Strong!
by: Michael Clonts


Natural Component of Apple Peels Found To Help Prevent Muscle WeakeningIn search of an effective method to prevent muscle wasting that comes with illness and aging, researchers have located a natural compound that is very promising.The findings reported in the June issue of Cell Metabolism (a Cell Press publication), identify a natural component of apple peels known as Ursolic Acid as a promising newnutritional therapy for the widespread and debilitating condition that affects nearly everyone at one time or another.”Muscle wasting is a frequent companion of illness and aging,” explained researchers from The University of Iowa, Iowa City. “It prolongs hospitalization, delays recoveries and in some cases prevents people going back home. It isn’t well understood and there is no medicine for it.”The research team first looked at what happens to gene activity in muscles under conditions that promote weakening. Those studies turned up 63 genes that change in response to fasting in both people and mice and another 29 that shift their expression in the muscles of both people who are fasting and those with spinal cord injury. Comparison of those gene expression signatures to the signatures of cells treated with more than 1300 bio-active small molecules led them to ursolic acid as a compound with effects that might counteract those of atrophy.”Ursolic Acid is an interesting natural compound,” they said. “It’s part of a normal diet as a component of apple peels. They always say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away…”The researchers next gave Ursolic Acid to fasted laboratory subjects. Those experiments showed that ursolic acid could protect against muscle weakening as predicted. When ursolic acid was added to the food of normal subjects for a period of weeks, their muscles grew. Those effects were traced back to enhanced insulin signaling in muscle and to corrections in the gene signatures linked to atrophy.

The subjects given ursolic acid also became leaner and had lower blood levels of glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides. The findings therefore suggest that ursolic acid may be responsible for some of the overall benefits of healthy eating.

“We know if you eat a balanced diet like mom told us to eat you get this material,” the researchers explained “People who eat junk food don’t get this.”

It is not yet clear whether the findings will translate to human patients, but the goal now is to “figure out if this can help people.” If so, they don’t yet know whether Ursolic Acid at levels that might be consumed as part of a normal diet might or might not be enough.

Great Tips for Time Management

Oct 6, 2014 0

time management

Time management is hard!  I know, I still have to make a conscious decision everyday to be sure I am using my time wisely. First thing in the morning is not bad.  I spend the first couple of hours reading my bible and in prayer.  But afterwards, when I should be working, my mind and body wants to sit in front of the television and watch I Love Lucy.

This wouldn’t be problem except that my most productive hours are in the morning.   So I can’t waste time watching television, surfing the internet, or checking emails.  I know that after 2pm my body and mind start winding down and nothing is getting done.  This may not be your particular situation.  You may be at your best in the afternoon.  Or maybe you want and are trying to carve out time for yourself and/or your family.  Whatever the particular situation, we know we need to take control of our time.  Below are some tips to help you manage time stealers:

1) Turn off the television.  With TiVo, internet, etc.,  there is no excuse for not being able to watch your favorite television shows at a later time.  You may have to re-train your body and emotions if they are used to watching television at a certain time during the day.  Yes, there may be withdrawal but you will overcome.

2) Prioritize.  Block off time in your day to do what is most important.  Make this uninterrupted time.  Turn off the phone.  If necessary, let family and friends know that this time is for your family, when you are working, or your quiet time.

3) Limit your cell phone and computer use.  These are the true time stealers.  I know that there are emails and alerts you must check, but if you are checking these several times within the hour, that is too much of your time that you could be using for more important things.  Prioritize your calls and check you emails twice a day, preferably around lunch and after your workday.

Time is the one thing we cannot get back. Remember:Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.” ~Alan Lakein.

EVENT: In Her Name – October 12, 2014

Oct 2, 2014 1

By Connie Alsobrook


October is here and many people, celebrities, companies are “Going Pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Month.  The Good News Notebook found a gentleman by the name of Dwight Pope from Tennessee Valley that was doing something totally different.  He create an event hosted by a group of men to honor women that were affect by Breast Cancer, named, “Men in Honor of Women in the Fight against Breast Cancer.”

gnn in her honor photo shootPope was his mother’s caretaker for 3 years when she was battling the disease. “It drains you emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially on every level,” stated Pope. During the fight

Pope said he learned a lot when caring for his mother such as, using the energy should be focused on people suffering from cancer, not the cancer itself.  “It offers us the opportunity as human beings to show compassion for each other, to listen to each other, and be willing to care and uplift each other.” said Pope

The Genesis of the event was given to Dwight Pope, It’s an event that will totally be produced by men, décor, food, hosting, entertainment, affirmations. Men will buy all tickets as a gift for women that they want to affirm. The event will focus less on Breast Cancer as a whole and more on Honoring and affirming our women.
Throughout history our women have shouldered the burden as backbone of our communities, they often carry so much pain to keep their loved ones from worry. Men for the most part have been silent in their struggle; we support them in non-verbal ways, but they need to hear from us, they need us to open up about how we feel about them.
This event will serve as a formal acknowledgement to all of them, our Mothers , Grandmothers, Aunts, Sisters and friends that we are here, we see their sacrifice and we Love them.

“IN HER NAME” is an Affirmation Event produced strictly by Men in Honor of Women in the Fight against Breast Cancer. It will take place Sunday October 12th 4-6p.m at Bob Harrison Senior Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The careers and the career characteristics in this app are based on version 16.0 of the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) database. The interest quiz is based on questions and interest classifications in the O*NET Interest Profiler. O*NET is developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) through a grant to the North Carolina Employment Security Commission. This app uses the information publicly provided by these organizations but is not endorsed by them in any way.
