The portable roller-ball (Arctic Roller) is great for pre or post workout massage to relieve muscle tightness, improve local circulation and help recovery.  Specially designed metal ball allows for pressure to be applied directly to muscles, joints and tendons. This gently eases discomfort, helps release metabolic waste, and delivers pinpoint, icy-cold relief of pain and stiffness.

Some practitioners claim that the rolling motion of the cold ball on your face can help clear toxins and decrease puffiness, while others assert much loftier results: that regular use of cold rollers can erase wrinkles, stimulate collagen, tighten pores and potentially improve inflammatory skin conditions.

There are different choices available on market these days. Pick yours…

Hemingway Special

July 26, 2020

The Hemingway Special is also known as the Papa Doble or Hemingway Daiquiri and it is a popular classic cocktail. As one may expect, it was named after the famous writer of the 1920’s and 30s, Ernest Hemingway. You will enjoy this cocktail because it brings the sweetness of maraschino along with tart grapefruit into the classic rum-lime mix.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • Garnish: lime wedge

Ginger-Ale-1Natural old-fashioned Ginger Ale
A naturally fermented old-fashioned ginger ale contains beneficial probiotics and enzymes.
Ingredients:
• A 1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, minced. Adjust this to taste.
• 1/2 cup of sugar
• 1 tablespoon molasses for flavor and minerals.
• 1/2 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 8 cups of filtered (chlorine free) water
1/2 cup fermented ginger (Ginger culture))

1. Place 3 cups of the water, minced ginger root, sugar, molasses, and salt in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
2. Simmer the mixture for about five minutes.
3. Remove from heat and add additional water, allow to cool to room temperature.
4. Add fresh lemon or lime juice and ginger culture (see instruction below).
5. Transfer to a 2quart air-tight lid jar.
6. Leave on the counter for 2-3 days until carbonated and transfer to the fridge.
7. Ready to drink….

Ginger culture

Ingredients:
• 1-2 fresh ginger roots
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 2 cups of water
• Quart size air-tight lid jar

1. Chop the organic ginger root about 1.5 inches long to make 2-3 tablespoons of grated ginger.
2. Place the ginger in a quart size jar and add an equal amount of white sugar (2-3 tablespoons) and add 2 cups of filtered water to the jar.
3. Stir with a non-metal spoon and lightly cover with a coffee filter and rubber band.
4. Each day for the next five days, stir the mixture at least once and add 1 tablespoon of grated ginger root and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

The culture is active if there are bubbles forming around the top of the mixture. If the mixture hasn’t taken on these characteristics by the 7-8th day, you need to discard it and start again.
Once the ginger culture is ready, it can be used to create fermented sodas and drinks.
Notes
To keep the bug alive and continue growing it, you will need to feed it regularly. Add 1 teaspoon of minced ginger and 1 teaspoon sugar per day if kept at room temperature. You can also “rest” it in the fridge and feed it 1 tablespoon each of ginger and sugar once a week. To reactivate it, remove and let it reach room temperature and begin feeding it again.

Avoiding all sugar is simply not realistic. It’s in so much of our food supply, including items you wouldn’t think have sugar in the first place, such as ketchup and bread. Soda is largest source of added sugar by far the  in the American diet, accounting for a third of our overall consumption. 

High-Sugar Drinks to Avoid

1. Pina Colada (16-ounce): This sweet cocktail is made with rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice. Empty calories come from both alcohol and added sugar. A typical glass sets you back a whopping 28 teaspoons of sugar!

Nutrition Info Estimate: 880 calories, 112 grams sugar

2. Sangria (16-ounce): Sangria is a sweet alcoholic beverage made by mixing wine with fruit and juice. While it all depends on what ingredients go into your brew, a standard serving contains about 19 teaspoons of sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 400 calories, 76 grams sugar

3. Pink Lemonade (16-ounce): This widely available beverage uses added sugar to balance out the sour lemon taste. A glass of storebought pink lemonade typically contains about 13 teaspoons of sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 440 calories, 51 grams sugar

4. Thai Iced Tea (16-ounce): Thai iced tea is commonly made by mixing chilled Ceylon tea, sweetened condensed milk and sugar, of course. You can find this beverage at Thai and Vietnamese restaurants.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 255 calories, 42 grams sugar

5. Cola (16-ounce): Whether you prefer Coke or Pepsi, you’ll find some version of cola at almost all eateries. This sweetened, carbonated beverage contains trace amounts of caffeine and large amounts of sugar. A 16-ounce serving contains 12 teaspoons of added sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 206 calories, 49 grams sugar

6. Coffee Frappuccino (16-ounce): This sweet treat is usually blended with syrupy sauces and heavy cream. A typical 16-ounce serving can contain 13 teaspoons of added sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 240 calories, 50 grams sugar

7. Orange Soda (16-ounce): Unlike its whole food counterpart (the fresh orange), orange soda is formulated with added sugar and food dye, which may be linked to hyperactivity in kids. Yellow 6 is a common dye used to give orange soda a tinge of sunset yellow. Instead of swishing down orange soda, try 100% orange juice, or better yet, just eat the fruit!

Nutrition Info Estimate: 255 calories, 63 grams sugar

8. Hot chocolate (16-ounce): Rich hot chocolate is a wonderful holiday treat, but drink it regularly throughout the year and you could be adding lots of empty calories to your waistline. A standard 16-ounce serving of hot chocolate is 400 calories — almost as many as a cheeseburger.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 400 calories, 43 grams sugar

9. Ginger Ale (16-ounce): This ginger-flavored carbonated beverage lacks the anti-inflammatory health benefits of actually consuming ginger. Like soda, ginger ale is loaded with added sugar. A glass contains 11 teaspoons of sugar diluted in water.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 166 calories, 43 grams sugar

10. Fruit Punch (16-ounce): Don’t be fooled by “fruit” in its name because fruit punch has very little in the way of fruit. In fact, fruit punch gets most of its flavor from, you guessed it, sugar. A glass of fruit punch has 15 teaspoons of added sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 227 calories, 58 grams sugar

11. Sweet Tea (21-ounce): Sweet tea is a traditional Southern drink that can sometimes be sweeter than soda. It’s typically made by diluting lots of sugar into hot Lipton tea. An article in Slate alleged sweet tea can reach 22 Brix of sugar meaning it’s 22% sugar. If so, you could be drinking something that’s twice as sweet as cola. We don’t have the official stats, so we’re going with the meager 7 teaspoons of added sugar you’ll get if you sip 16-ounce of sweet tea elsewhere.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 110 calories and 28 grams of sugar

12. Vanilla Milkshake: A serving of vanilla milkshake at a popular fast food chain provides good insight into what a dense drink can pack. It amounts to 500 calories and 66 grams of sugar, which is 17 teaspoons of sugar.

Nutrition Info Estimate: 500 calories, 66 grams sugar

Librarian Chic

June 23, 2020

✨There’s a reason librarians wear their glasses on a neck chain (or at least they do in our heads and in the movies). It actually works to make sure those glasses don’t get misplaced. Somehow even if all we’re doing is sitting in bed being mad at Netflix for reminding us that we haven’t moved in three hours, we still manage to misplace our phones.
