Are You Satisfied With Your Life?

 

 

by

Joseph

Are you satisfied with your life? Do you feel as if you have all that you can possibly need (or that you deserve)? Or do you feel that life has more to offer than what you presently have? The way you approach these questions, and your response to them, says a great deal about your character and life outlook.

Some people are easily satisfied, they want for nothing and therefore lack for nothing. For these people, life is good as it is right at that moment. Other folks may not feel satisfied with their lives but they lack the willpower to doing anything about it. These are the people who settle but always want more.

Then there are the people who are not satisfied with life, but do something about it. These folks often belong to one of two camps: those who have achieved great things and want even more (sometimes venturing into the ugly world of greed), or those who know that they can go beyond their present circumstances and become what they envision themselves to be.

Both camps share a common goal: betterment. How they go about it, though, depends on personal attitudes (which can sometimes be referred to as "morality") and ethics. In other words, some of these people will hold to personal ideals even if their plans for betterment conflict with ethics. In the end, though, people in both camps will never feel satisfied, because they'll always feel compelled do better.

So, who has the happier, more fulfilling life? Those whom are satisfied or those whom are not? Which type of person are you? Just think about it: are you satisfied?  

 

“Come unto me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

How I Barely Escaped My Family Legacy of Obesity

How I Barely Escaped My Family Legacy of Obesity

Submitted by: Lorraine Matthews Antosiewicz

Without a doubt, the cards were stacked against me growing up. My mother and grandmother were morbidly obese, other relatives were overweight, and our eating environment was not what I would call healthy. Meals mostly revolved around white bread with margarine, jelly sandwiches on white bread, bologna sandwiches with mayo on white bread, hotdogs and hamburgers on white bread, cookies and ice cream. There was the occasional canned fruit cocktail and canned corn, but other than that vegetables and fruit were rarities. Drinking water was never encouraged and it didn't occur to me that I needed it. I'm quite certain I was chronically dehydrated as a kid. Without a doubt, my horrible eating habits were the cause of my skin issues, lack of energy, depressed mood, and growing waste line.

Both my genetics and environment pointed me in the direction of obesity and yet somehow I managed to escape it; call it luck, fate, or a strong determination. I was fortunate to have a good high school biology teacher and I loved the subject. That's when I first realized that food mattered, and the digestive system fascinated me. It was during the eleventh grade that I decided to go to college and become a doctor which eventually evolved into a nutritionist. Food and nutrition continue to be my passion to this day. I now know that food can be either our medicine or our poison.

Over time, I learned more about food and nutrition, and developed the healthy eating habits that I have today. As a mother, I was so strongly committed to passing on those habits to my children who are both young men now. I'm proud to say they are both healthy eaters. And me, I've been able to "turn off" my inherited obesity genes by making healthy eating a priority in my life. I'm leaving the family legacy of obesity behind me.

THE EVERYDAY NON-NEGOTIABLES THAT HELP ME MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

I eat three balanced meals a day rather than randomly snacking whenever. If I'm hungry between meals, I will eat something but I make it count. It's got to be packed with nutrients.

I plan my meals around plants rather than animals. I'm not a vegetarian, but I definitely like to eat plants better than animals. I eat some type of plant food with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I eat healthy fat every day including nuts, seeds, almond butter, avocado, olive oil, and coconut. I love pasture raised eggs (including the yolks!) and full-fat yogurt from grass-fed cows (unsweetened of course).

I drink plenty of water! For my size, I need at least 60 oz. per day and I try to drink more than that. I guess I'm making up for all the water I missed as a kid.

I avoid (with a vengeance) highly processed foods. If there are more than 5 ingredients in a packaged food, I scrutinize them very carefully. With few acceptations, I don't eat food products with lots of added ingredients.

I limit added sugar and never consume artificial sweeteners.

I eat mostly whole grains. I have one or two servings of whole grains on most days. I feel better when I don't overdo it with this food group.

I cook and eat at home most of the time. I do eat out occasionally but I'm picky about the restaurant. It's got to have healthy options on the menu. I never eat fast food.

I don't deprive myself. If I want to indulge in something gooey and sweet, I do it. I don't do it often though because it doesn't make me feel good.

I would never go on a diet. Food is to be enjoyed and appreciated. It's not something to worry about or fear.

Easy Dinner Ideas: Meatloaf With Steak Sauce and Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Easy Dinner Ideas: Meatloaf With Steak Sauce and Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Submitted by: Brandy Summers

When you get a hankering for a classic, traditional meal that doesn’t take a lot of time to put together, a smart choice is to make a meatloaf with mashed potatoes dinner. This is an all-time favorite of many people because it’s simple, yet tasty, comfort food.

Meatloaf has a long tradition of being an easy meal to prepare. Favorite meatloaf recipes have been passed along for generations. Still, many people think that making meatloaf is throwing together some ground beef and bread crumbs. Well, it is, but it’s also much more than that.

Today’s meatloaf is still simple to make, but the ingredients used to prepare it can vary from mild to spicy. Boring meatloaf is a thing of the past, and you can add different mixtures of ingredients to achieve bold and hearty flavors. These flavors are easy to achieve using ingredients you already have in your kitchen. And, if you need to run to the store to buy ingredients, they’re easy to find.

Take, for instance, our Meatloaf with Steak Sauce recipe. This is a great recipe for meatloaf, because it uses hearty steak sauce (your choice) instead of the traditional ketchup. This automatically creates a deeper, richer flavor. The addition of onion and green pepper compliments the taste and texture. Of course, you can always add your own touches, but all in all, this recipe is probably one you’ll use a lot.

=> Meatloaf with Steak Sauce

1-1/2 pounds of ground beef, 1-1/4 teaspoons salt, 1 egg, 1 dash black pepper, 1 cup soft bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of steak sauce, 1 onion, chopped, 1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8-1/2x4-1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, egg, black pepper and the bread crumbs. Add in the milk, 3 tablespoons of the steak sauce, onion and green pepper. Blend all of the ingredients until thoroughly mixed.

Place the meatloaf mixture into the loaf pan and gently press down. Brush the remaining steak sauce on top of the loaf.

Bake for 1 hour, or until the loaf is firm to the touch and is lightly browned. Take it out of the oven and let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Our Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes is the perfect dish to accompany this flavorful meatloaf. This is one of the most popular mashed potato flavors invented. Whoever thought of adding the strong tang of roasted garlic to the mellow ease of mashed potatoes is a genius!

I know that there are pre-mixed mashed potatoes that you can buy at your local grocery store, but there’s something special about having freshly made mashed potatoes that can’t be matched. If you have the time (and you do, while the meatloaf is baking), you can whip up this classic mashed potatoes recipe and win rave reviews at the dinner table.

=> Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds of baking potatoes, peeled and quartered, 1 head of roasted garlic, 1 cup of half-and-half cream, 2 tablespoons of butter, cut up, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.

In a large saucepan, add the potatoes then enough cold water to cover the potatoes completely, or by one inch. Bring the water to a boil and reduce the heat. Cover the pan and cook the potatoes for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are tender. Drain the potatoes using a colander.

Separate the roasted garlic cloves by squeezing them until they pop our of their skins. Add the garlic to a medium sized saucepan. Pour in the half-and-half cream and cook over medium heat until hot. Remove the pan from the heat. Mash up the garlic until it has kind of a smooth consistency.

Return the hot potatoes to the pan and mash with a potato masher until they are smooth. Add in half of the hot garlic mixture and butter. Keep mashing until all is well blended.

Add in the remaining garlic mixture, salt and the pepper. Mash potatoes until nice and fluffy.

=> Roasted Garlic

1 large head of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Remove the loose paper outer skins of the garlic cloves. Do not peel. Cut off the very top of the head to expose the individual cloves.

Place cloves on a square of heavy duty aluminum foil. Drizzle the olive oil over the garlic. Wrap the garlic up inside of the foil.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the garlic is soft and a pale golden color. Let it cool before using.

Benefits Of Strength Training

Benefits Of Strength Training

Submitted by: Ken Bendor

The benefits of a good strength training program are almost endless. Less disease, happiness and most importantly, showing off your muscles at the beach.

Strength training should be part of everyone's routine. Even if you are low on time, strength training, according to the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), only needs to be done 2-3 times per week with each session lasting no more than one hour. For 2-3 hours per week, huge benefits can be realized.

Regular strength training will:

**help you in day to day activities around the house and in your yard. It will keep you independent which is especially important in the older population. Imagine not being able to lift a 5 pound bag of flour or take the garbage out by yourself.

**lower the risk of osteoporosis, hypertension and diabetes.

**help you avoid lower back pain.

**increase bone density which is important for post menopausal women.

**increase muscle mass which burns more calories throughout the day than an equal amount of fat.

Even with all these benefits, many people are reluctant to start training with weights. Concerns include injury, incorrect form and for women; not wanting to grow muscles and look like a man.

When beginning your strength training program, the risk of getting hurt can be greatly reduced by starting out with machines rather than free weights. As you become more comfortable with the machines, slowly learn to use free weights. If you want to stick with the machines, know that they will give you the same benifits as free weights. As for the concern that women will look like men, it won't happen without the help of steroids, which you shouldn't even consider using.

Sometimes when we think of being healthy, we think of eating and running. While these are important, strength training should never be left out. Strength training provides benefits to your health that cannot be found with any other mode of exercise and shouldn't be forgotten.
