The Best Tasting Medifast Meals

The other day, I received an email from a reader who was trying to put together a custom medifast order but wasn’t sure which foods to chose.  She asked me to give her a list of what were the best tasting foods.  I was happy to do that and I’ll share my list with you below, but everyone’s tastes are going to be different.  Still, I spend a lot of time on weight loss web sites and many of the folks on there agree with me. So, below I’ll go over, by meal, which of the foods I most often chose and enjoy.

My Favorite Medifast Breakfast Choices: For breakfast, I almost always have the cappuccino.  I am a coffee drinker and really could not start my morning without it.  The cappuccino is part of the momentum metabolism line and you can get it by either ordering it individually or ordering a momentum package (which includes most of the other popular foods.)  I also enjoy the oatmeal and like all the flavors (apple cinnamon, blueberry, and peach) but peach has got to be my favorite.

Mid Morning Snack: I will generally have a protein bar here because 10:00 – 10:30 is a busy time for me.  These bars do not have the crumbly texture and bland taste of a lot of protein bars.  Most of them are actually chewy and they don’t have a weird after taste.  You are only allowed one of these per day.  The only flavor that I don’t like on these is the strawberry crunch.  My favorites are the peanut butter and the chocolate mint. Another good choice would be the brownies or pancakes.

Lunch:  As weird as it sounds, I often have the medifast eggs for lunch.  I eat my lunch somewhat early and I’m often not ravenously hungry at this time.  So, I will add veggies and fat free cheese to the eggs in the morning or sometimes I’ll add cheese and tortilla.  Other times, I’ll opt for the chili.  It’s pretty good and I like to add the low cal cheese and the diet’s chips on top to make a sort of taco salad. A lot of people ask me about the soups. A few of them are OK.  I like both the chicken and rice and the chicken noodle. The tomato soup is fine too.  But, I am not a fan of the crab or broccoli but I don’t like these things when I’m not dieting either.

Afternoon Snack: I almost always have a shake here.  The medifast 55 dutch chocolate shake is very rich and indulgent tasting and at 3:00, I crave snacks and carbs.  I sometimes use the ready to drink shakes if I’m too busy to pre make the 55, but they aren’t my favorite because I really like to control the texture and I like to add fat free syrups. The dutch chocolate shake with caramel syrup and fat free whipped cream is pretty good.  The french vanilla is decent too, but I am partial to chocolate in most all foods.

Dinner:  Your dinner is made on your own and is called your “lean and green meal” – although you can have this main meal whenever you want.  So, I am going to skip this because none of the plan’s meals are involved here.

Night Snack:  There are a couple of options here.  Most typically, I will opt for the pudding (my favorite is the banana).  Lately, I’ve been eating a lot of the medifast ice cream. Sometimes, I’ll go for the chips if I want salty rather than sweet. And, there are a lot of recipes that allows you to take the dry pudding and make it into baked goods so sometimes if I have time, I’ll do that.

Over all, I don’t find that the medifast foods taste too bad.  I generally steer clear of the crab soup, the beef stew, and fruit drinks, but most every thing else is edible and can often be made better by just sprucing it up.

Visiting Glasgow and the Outer Islands (Scotland)

When it comes to Scotland, people often think of bagpipes, haggis, whiskey as well as the breathtaking landscape with lots, mountains and castles. Therefore it becomes a perfect tourist destination. All cities in this country have rich historic architecture with modern prospects, and the countryside here offer from spectacular highlands to craggy coastlines.

 

Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, is one of the finest examples of Victorian architecture and has reclaimed its fame as a centre of style in the United Kingdom.There’s a real creative energy in Glasgow, which can be found in the windows of art dealers, in the fine restaurants or West End cafes. From museums and art galleries to designer boutiques and chic malls, this city offers the tourist a non-stop agenda for an urban vacation.

 

With the largest gay village in Scotland located in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City area, the raw energy flows day and night. This neighborhood can easily be found to the southeast of George Square, a tourist landmark in front of the historic City Chambers. Here you will find approximately a dozen high quality gay and lesbian bars, clubs, spas, pubs and lounges within walking distance of each other.

 

The gay hub at the south end of the village (close to the St. Enoch Underground station) located at 11 Dixon Street is the Glasgow LGBT Center. This venue provides a wealth of information about the gay community and houses a gay bar and cafe. Here you can familiarize yourself with the community, enjoy home cooked food and reasonable bar prices served up by helpful and friendly staff. It’s a great place to plan your foray into gay Glasgow. There are several traditional gay pubs and the Waterloo Pub at 306 Argyle Street claims to be the oldest gay bar in Glasgow. Always busy and packed, this piece of gay history is a good starting point for an evening of fun. Another popular pub is the Court Bar at 69 Hutcheson Street and here you can enjoy music from the seventies and eighties in a small, cosy, friendly pub atmosphere.

 

This also places you very close to the ohso-stylish Glasgow club scene that is not to be missed. Delmonica’s or Dels as it is affectionately known, located at 68 Virginia Street, has recently been remodeled and is a triumph of glass, mirrors and vistas with frequent cabaret shows, karaoke and dance parties plus bar food served daily. Just around the corner is the stylish Polo Lounge with its leather and-oak ground floor gentleman’s club appearance and three levels of entertainment pleasure. Downstairs in The Trophy Room, it’s more of a mature crowd but kick up your heels and dance in The Club Room where everyone ends up late at night. These are just a few suggestions and Gay Glasgow has much more to offer those who are in search of a diverse and varied nightlife during their holiday. The local ScotsGay magazine is a wealth of local information and is readily available throughout the village.

 

Most Glasgow hotels and inns are gay-friendly and welcome the GLBT traveler as guests. The Art House Hotel is a large, classy 1911 Victorian terrace house in the heart of the village. Recently restored with striking new colorful design combining the original architectural elements, it boasts two restaurants. This trendy hotel is a little more expensive but worthy of the price for luxury and convenient location. In the West End two guesthouses are more modestly priced-The Glasgow Guest House and the Bellhaven Hotel. Both are restored Victorian-style houses with modern conveniences and only a short distance to everything Glasgow has to offer.

The City boasts one of Europe’s finest public art collections and magnificent architecture from the thirteenth to the twenty-first century. For art-lovers the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, a red sandstone palace of art, has recently re-opened after three years of renovations, with a range of upgrades and improvements. Over two hundred arts organizations make their home in Glasgow giving the city a vibrant arts community akin to any other major cultural European city.

 

Atmosphere is something the West End has in spades. The cobblestone streets such as Ashton Lane, with bars, restaurants and boutiques come alive at sunset and pulse into the wee hours with a soundtrack provided by street musicians. Shopping is an art form unto itself, with small boutiques and chic malls providing a canvas waiting for shoppers to leave their marks. Browse around Merchant City, Princes Square, Kings Court and the Victorian Village-just a few of the city’s major shopping areas. With an excellent bus and subway public transit network everything Glasgow has to offer is nearby and easily accessible.

 

After experiencing the Scottish urban landscape you will probably want to head to the Highlands to enjoy breathtaking scenery of mountains and lochs. The sheer variety of content from historic castles and ancient distilleries, vast lakes, tranquil ferry rides to small town destinations provide relaxation and an escape from hometown pressures. With so many choices, you will probably want to plan your tour of the countryside before you leave home.

 

There are several well-planned excursions available and many have themes like Castles and Gardens, the Victorian Heritage Trail, the Malt Whiskey Trail and even Celtic Pride Tours for small groups of GLBT travelers. You can custom design your own trip or join an organized group of vacationers with similar interests. For the really brave, renting a car or motorcycle (BMW or Harley Davidson) allows the freedom of the roads but remember they drive on the wrong side and on the smaller islands the roads are only one lane wide, requiring considerable skills not learned in North America. Travel by rail and ferry is a popular alternative, allowing you to move freely around the countryside on your own agenda and at your own pace. Whatever your preference the rewards from the Scottish way of life are rich, plentiful and memorable.

 

My choice included travelling northwest along the banks of Loch Lomond via the eighteenth century village of Inverary to the ferry port of Oban heading for a few days on the Isles of Mull and Iona. Accompanied by a Scottish Blue Badge Driver Guide, Mike Hardie, this tour of the Hebrides outer islands revealed the history and mystery of these natural, unspoiled lands with their small populations plus abundant wildlife.

 

The castles Duart and Torosay plus the Iona Abbey were some of the finest examples of Scottish heritage which are still standing and functional today. On the Isle of Mull both Torosay Castle (almost 150 years old) and Duart Castle (over 600 years old) and still home of the Maclean Clan today, are occupied by their current bloodline custodians from family lineage. On the Isle of Iona the Abbey, which dates back to AD 563, is one of the most historic and venerated sites where Scottish Kings are buried.

 

Also, on the mystical Isle of Iona, the Findhorn Foundation operates Traigh Bhan retreat house for quiet contemplation, spiritual rest and renewal. Throughout the year, they offer exclusive gay and lesbian retreats for groups of six to experience the sanctuary and explore the island’s natural beauty.

 

Back on Mull the small, thriving fishing village of Tobermory with its colorful painted houses is the setting for a BBC Television children’s program and is the hub of the island. High up on a hill overlooking Tobermory Bay is the Western Isles Hotel, a fully restored Victorian mansion with spectacular views, fine dining and a lively bar at nighttime.

 

The village of Tobermory is a charming collection of small shops, restaurants and pubs with an energetic nightlife during the tourist season. Here you can sample traditional local cuisine including fresh fish (salmon, of course), kippers for breakfast, local game dishes including venison, grouse, pheasant and partridge, haggis (definitely) and desserts such as cranachan or cloutie dumpling. All accompanied by the largest variety of Scotch Whiskey ever available to the discriminating Robbie Burns fan.

 

If you’re looking for a vacation, which combines the excitement and culture of a metropolis and the peace and tranquility of nature at its most rugged, then Scotland has everything you’re searching to find. By the way, they also have some of the best and most challenging golf courses in the world. Set out to enjoy your own highland games and you’ll return home from the experience of a lifetime already planning your next Scottish vacation.

 

In case you’re wondering what is worn under a Scotsman’s kilt the answer is nothing is worn-everything works perfectly, like brand new!

A Random Sample Of Magnet Facts

 

There are many strange and scattered facts about today’s new crop of super strong magnets that most people know nothing about. First off, the amazing power of rare earth magnets never really becomes apparent to the layman until given the opportunity to examine them in person. When most people think of magnets, they imagine these big blocks of metal that clank together when you being them near something made out of iron. Or else they think about those floppy bits of advertising material that go up on the refrigerator to hold a child’s first drawing safely in place. People even picture an old-fashioned horseshoe magnet that serves as a staple of middle school science experiments.  Mention disc magnets and all the stereotypes go flying right out the window.
 
Obviously, a disc magnet is round, flat, and shaped like a coin or perhaps a breath mint. While this conceptualization is true in the abstract, it is very much mistaken in perspective. The big surprise of these modern rare earth discs is how tiny they actually are. Rather than approximating a coin in size, an entire line of these powerhouses can be laid out across the face of a penny. There are many sizes that practically require a magnifying glass to see what they are. It seems impossible that they could do anything other than hold themselves in place, yet these new magnets are ten times stronger than the ceramic magnets they take the place of.
 
Most rare earth magnets, including those nearly microscopic disc magnets, that consumers come into contact with are NIB magnets, or Neodymium, Iron and Boron. These are conversationally referred to as neodymium magnets. These are categorized according to their field strength and resistance to temperature degradation. The highest grade of neodymium magnet currently in production is an N52. 
 
Any neodymium magnet with no letter following behind the number portion of its grade is rated as a standard grade magnet. Letter grades include M, H, SH, UH, and EH in order of rising resistance to temperature. Temperature is important in many magnet applications since magnets can lose their force either temporarily or permanently when the temperature rise above or falls below its rated performance level.
 
While rare earth magnets have countless uses in industrial and household applications, there are a few rather bizarre ways in which disc magnets are used that have no apparently confirmed scientific utility but still attract a following of practitioners. One of these is the belief that a strong magnetic field can  more quickly age alcoholic beverages such as wine and whiskey. Another is the old canard that two magnets placed on opposite sides of a car’s fuel line will increase gas mileage considerably. Perhaps today’s more powerful magnets might finally be able to accomplish these old tricks that never seemed to work before.

George Washington Beer Coming Soon

Most people are unaware that most of the Founding Fathers of the nation also brewed their own beer. Thomas Jefferson’s recipe has actually seen the light of day in recent years after being revived by a local brewing company. In contrast, George Washington’s whiskey distillery is better known than his beer brewing exploits, though he did brew his own beer. Now Washington’s own personal beer recipe will be available to the public again. A partnership between the New York Public Library (the holder of the original recipe) and Coney Island Brewing Company will bring back a (very) limited release of this historic beer.

In all, only 25 gallons of George Washington’s beer will be available and it will not be available commercially. The only place that you could get your mitts on one of these brews is if you managed to visit the Rattle N Hum in Manhattan or if you made it to the New York Public Library’s 100th birthday celebration in NYC. The brewers in charge of bringing Washington’s recipe back to fermented life stayed true to the original recipe as much as possible, though a few tweaks had to be made. The final brew is a rich porter and uses small batch dark malts as well as specialty hops to create a remarkable beer.

Fortitude’s Founding Father Brew, as it is being named, is a taste from the past, a glimpse into the mind and character of one of the nation’s most important historical figures and also a remarkable modern innovation. This dedication to recreating this historic brew is even more apparent when you read Washington’s very brief recipe. The following is contained on a scrap of paper held in the New York Public Library’s Washington Archives:

To Make Small Beer

Take a large Siffer [Sifter] full of Bran Hops to your Taste. — Boil these 3 hours then strain out 30 Gall[ons] into a cooler put in 3 Gall[ons] Molasses while the Beer is Scalding hot or rather draw the Melasses into the cooler & St[r]ain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. Let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm then put in a quart of Yea[s]t if the Weather is very Cold cover it over with a Blank[et] & let it Work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask — leave the bung open till it is almost don[e] Working — Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed.

The Basics Of Wine Tasting

Many people believe that wine tasting is a challenging subject to understand; in reality wine tasting is quite simple. Like the majority of things in life it simply requires practice before you can sip a wine and then determine its qualities. As you go to your first wine tasting there is no need to learn every one of the wine phrases or the attributes which make an excellent wine. To take pleasure from your first wine tasting, you just need a sense of smell, a sense of taste and a good eye; everything you currently have! Don’t be unnerved by the lingo that may be tossed about by more well-informed wine enthusiasts. After some practice you, too, can make this happen at a wine tasting.

When tasting wine, the first point that you need to do is to evaluate the shade of the wine you are about to try. To properly evaluate the coloring of the wine you need to tip the goblet away from you even while keeping it against a white-colored backdrop. Analyze the color from the glass’s edge to the middle of the wine. The age of the wine is frequently discerned from the shade of the wine. In order to plainly examine the color of the wine tilt the glass with a whitened piece of paper or a white tablecloth at the rear of the glass. It is best to make use of a clear glass during a wine tasting.

You’ve probably noticed individuals swirling their glasses at a wine tasting. This approach is in fact a vital action to tasting wine. You must simply sniff the wine more often than once, the first whiff you get needs to be a brief one and the following one should certainly be a deeper inhale. Just after swirling a glass of wine next take a quick inhale, following this preliminary sniff then you’re able to put your nose into the glass and breathe in deeply to obtain a greater concept of the wine. While you inhale the fragrance of the wine, search for distinct notes for example fruitiness, floral accents, and overtones of oak.

The first sip of the wine you take will not reveal all its qualities; you may taste whether a wine is sweet or dry, light or heavy, or significantly complex. On your second sip you might start to taste flavors such as a specific fruit, spice, or additional notes that were not evident at the first sip. Once you have swallowed the wine you should be able to discover if there is a lingering flavor on the palate and describe what the consistency of the wine felt like. Wine tasting is a unique hobby that will help you to better value wine and make good selections to pair with almost any food.

More information on storing and enjoying wine can be found in Chris Miley’s ebook on how to Build A Basement Wine Cellar. It not only includes information about building a basement wine cellar, there is also a wealth of information on the basics of wine tasting.

Wine Tasting Gift Ideas

When attending a wine tasting event, most guests feel that it is a show of appreciation to bring a wine tasting gift. This shows the host that his or her efforts were appreciated and the guests are happy to attend the event. It may not be possible to present a wine tasting gift when the event is being held at a hotel or a restaurant. However, if it is being held in someone’s house, the gift will be noticed and appreciated.

Kind of Wine Tasting Gift to Present

There are many forms of gifts that guests can present to their hosts to show that they appreciate the event. The wine tasting gift should be related to wine but not necessarily wine. When hosting a wine tasting party, the host has more wine than they need and therefore bringing a bottle of wine may not have an impact on the guest. One of the most common gifts that most guests bring is wine glasses. Wine tasters have a certain liking for wine glasses and never seem to get enough of them as a wine tasting gift. The glasses should preferably be unique and have a certain story behind them so that they can be used as mementos or collectors items.

Another wine tasting gift idea is a wine barrel that can be used for other purposes other than storing wine. This can be used as a dcor in the house and can enhance the artistic features of the house. Most wine tasting party hosts enjoy such gifts as they reflect their passion in wines. Another great wine tasting gift idea is a wine bottle storage container or shelf. This can also be historical and serve as a collector’s item. If a guest cannot find a specific bottle rack, they can have one custom made for their host and therefore show that they put some effort in deciding the gift.

Most wine tasters would love to go on a wine tour regardless of how many times they have been there. Getting the host a tour gift voucher is a great idea because wine tasters get to experience what they love in the company of professionals and also where the entire process actually takes place. All in all, choosing the perfect wine tasting gift can leave a lasting impression on a host. To return the favor, most hosts also offer their guests a wine tasting gift mostly in form of wine from the tasting event.

Wine Tasting Gift Ideas

When attending a wine tasting event, most guests feel that it is a show of appreciation to bring a wine tasting gift. This shows the host that his or her efforts were appreciated and the guests are happy to attend the event. It may not be possible to present a wine tasting gift when the event is being held at a hotel or a restaurant. However, if it is being held in someone’s house, the gift will be noticed and appreciated.

Kind of Wine Tasting Gift to Present

There are many forms of gifts that guests can present to their hosts to show that they appreciate the event. The wine tasting gift should be related to wine but not necessarily wine. When hosting a wine tasting party, the host has more wine than they need and therefore bringing a bottle of wine may not have an impact on the guest. One of the most common gifts that most guests bring is wine glasses. Wine tasters have a certain liking for wine glasses and never seem to get enough of them as a wine tasting gift. The glasses should preferably be unique and have a certain story behind them so that they can be used as mementos or collectors items.

Another wine tasting gift idea is a wine barrel that can be used for other purposes other than storing wine. This can be used as a dcor in the house and can enhance the artistic features of the house. Most wine tasting party hosts enjoy such gifts as they reflect their passion in wines. Another great wine tasting gift idea is a wine bottle storage container or shelf. This can also be historical and serve as a collector’s item. If a guest cannot find a specific bottle rack, they can have one custom made for their host and therefore show that they put some effort in deciding the gift.

Most wine tasters would love to go on a wine tour regardless of how many times they have been there. Getting the host a tour gift voucher is a great idea because wine tasters get to experience what they love in the company of professionals and also where the entire process actually takes place. All in all, choosing the perfect wine tasting gift can leave a lasting impression on a host. To return the favor, most hosts also offer their guests a wine tasting gift mostly in form of wine from the tasting event.

Drinking Poison

That’s what it’s like to keep a resentment, drinking poison and hoping for someone else to die. Kind of stupid isn’t it?

An Orientalopinion is that if your’re likely to cultivate a resentment, you might as well dig two graves. One for the other person and the other for your own.

I had a really dear friend that killed himself over a resentment to his father. At least I think that it was a resentment. Why else would he have placed his fathers chair atop his father’s desk and knelt down looking at it to die of an overdose?

The 4th step in the twelve step process consists of a searching a moral inventory of ourselves. What this does is allow us to set down on paper ever person, place or thing that you’re angry with.

What the heck is carried out with this list? Well, one will then discuss this with a sponsor and discover what is the underlying belief that we hold onto this anger. When we understand the problem along with the reason, then we can easily begin clearing out the problems.

It is said that about 80% of most illness is due to tension. Several the actual threads of tension are rage and anxiety. Anger in direction of activities in our past and anxiety that a number of our activities might be identified.

Probably the greatest things that I have ever completed was to take a moment and compose a letter to my father concerning precisely why he needed the AA program. I outlined everything he had ‘done to me’. It then changed from that to the actions that he had taken and in what way that i had responded to them. It went from passing the buck to him for the issues that I’ve encountered to getting accountability for my decisions.

It was a 10 page letter. By the time I got to the end, I was ripping holes in the pages using the pencil. But, I got rid of the resentments that had come out of my child years.

Once I got finished, I read the letter and chucked it away. He did not need to discover all of that rubbish. It was not his stuff, it was mine.

So, clear away your own resentments and give up consuming the poison.

Life is as good as I allow it to be.
