Jenner is a huge fan of tea and drinks it throughout the day. “I usually start my day with a cup of detox tea,” she told E! New. “I have like 12 cups a day.” “There is a lot of literature on tea and heart health,” says Anna Ardine, clinical nutrition manager at Magee-Womens Hospital at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. “This is a health effect for which there is the strongest evidence.”

“I like running,” Jennifer says. “I tried to get back to it.” “Many dedicated long-term runners don’t run because they want to live longer,” says cardiologist Dr Aaron Baggish. “They run because it helps them feel better every day. There is a benefit to mood and quality of life in exercising regularly.”

“My beauty secret for fashion week is just to sleep well”, Jennifer says. “I feel like I need at least seven hours, eight hours of sleep to function.” Jenner is onto something: good sleep is essential for health and fitness. “Lack of sleep can increase appetite by altering hormones, makes us more likely to eat unhealthy foods, and influences how body fat is lost while counting our calories,” says incumbent lecturer Emma Sweeney and Health, Nottingham Trent University and Ian Walshe, Senior Lecturer in Health and Exercise Science, Northumbria University, Newcastle. “Sleep should therefore be seen as an essential element alongside diet and physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.”

Jenner incorporates regular Pilates sessions into her workout routine. “There is a therapeutic and preventative benefit to Pilates,” says yoga therapist Judi Bar“because it isolates and relaxes muscle groups, it strengthens them with control and breathing.”

Jenner has been riding horses since she was very young and continues to enjoy it. “Riding a horse for 45 minutes at a walk, trot and canter can burn up to 200 calories,” says Dr. Dennis Sigler, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horse specialist and professor in the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M University in College Station. “If you’re doing something a little more strenuous, like cutting or braking, that can add up to almost seven calories per minute for the duration of the driving period.”

by Jenner favorite cheat day meal? Pizza! “A cheat meal is high in calories and all of the macronutrients – protein, carbohydrates and fat – and is not normally part of a proper diet,” says nutritionist Eva Lana, MSc. “Weekly high-calorie, low-carb cheat meals may help increase leptin levels and lower ghrelin.”

Unappealing meals at Winnipeg hospital part of wider ‘systemic failure on set’: national organization https://kotisivurobotti.net/unappealing-meals-at-winnipeg-hospital-part-of-wider-systemic-failure-on-set-national-organization/ Fri, 12 Aug 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://kotisivurobotti.net/unappealing-meals-at-winnipeg-hospital-part-of-wider-systemic-failure-on-set-national-organization/ A relative of a man recently hospitalized in Winnipeg says patients are being given unappetizing meals and wonders if they are meeting the nutritional needs of people recovering from illness or injury.

A relative of a man recently hospitalized in Winnipeg says patients are being given unappetizing meals and wonders if they are meeting the nutritional needs of people recovering from illness or injury.

Thomas Rempel-Ong’s brother-in-law broke his femur over the August long weekend and was sent to the Health Sciences Center in Winnipeg for immediate surgery.

Rempel-Ong soon began snapping photos of the unattractive meals served to her brother-in-law as he tried to recover from his surgery.

“The diplomatic response was that everything he tried to eat was completely bland, there was no flavor,” Rempel-Ong said.

“It looked unappetizing and almost as if it had been fabricated by the lowest bidder.”

What stood out in the photos was the small portion sizes, the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables and how nasty the food looked on the plate, he said.

A breakfast served at HSC to Rempel-Ong’s brother-in-law, who was recovering from surgery after breaking his femur. The “base diet…definitely didn’t help his recovery,” says Rempel-Ong. (Submitted by Thomas Rempel-Ong)

A Manitoba Shared Health spokesperson said HSC’s meal plan costs $26 per day per patient — a price that includes meals, snacks, supplies and salaries.

HSC’s food services department “uses nutritional specifications and testing when sourcing food to meet high quality standards,” the provincial health organization’s spokesperson wrote in a statement to CBC.

Menus offer fruit and vegetables throughout the day, “with additional availability of fresh fruit and salad upon request,” the statement said.

Meals ‘didn’t help’ recovery

Rempel-Ong reviewed the hospital’s dietary policies and found that adult patients are supposed to receive a minimum of 1,800 calories per day.

According to Shared Health, the HSC meal plan follows recommendations from clinical dietitians at the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, based on sources such as Canada’s Food Guide and “literary evidence.”

“Based on the evidence, the expert panel recommended providing a minimum of 1,800 calories per day based on a weekly average,” the Shared Health spokesperson said.

Based on the photos Rempel-Ong saw, he wondered if that was the number of calories his brother-in-law was actually served.

Rempel-Ong says his brother-in-law sent him many pictures of the meals he received at HSC. The food was bland and bland, and the portions were too small, he says. (Submitted by Thomas Rempel-Ong)

“Trying to start recovering from that major injury and going on – I would say – a rudimentary diet completely out of the blue, that certainly hasn’t helped his recovery,” he said.

“I just can’t believe this is acceptable. … It almost feels like we’re putting patients on, for lack of a better term, a starvation diet.”

Rempel-Ong says his brother-in-law was released from hospital a week later, choosing to recover from surgery at his home just outside Winnipeg, where he wouldn’t have to depend on meals of the hospital.

Hospital food ‘notoriously disliked’

Efforts have been made to make changes to meals in hospitals across the country, including pushing for traditional and wild foods to be included in meal plans.

The problem is that food is often not considered part of health care, “when it really is,” said Hayley Lapalme, co-executive director of Nourish Leadership.

His nonprofit is working with public and private care providers in British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario — but not any in Manitoba at this point — to create meal plans that take into account how food can be part of a holistic patient care plan.

“Unfortunately I think hospital food is notoriously unloved across the country. But I really don’t see it as an isolated or individual failing of a facility or the staff there, but it really is a systemic failure on set,” Lapalme said.

“And that’s one, I think, that goes back to a mindset really that food is incidental to the care that’s provided in a health care setting.”

Rempel-Ong says his brother-in-law was put on a low-sodium diet, to reduce the risk of inflammation after surgery, but he says that limit shouldn’t mean the food served is bland and unpalatable.

“You can still have a whole, healthy diet without salt,” he said.

To help her brother-in-law with his recovery, Rempel-Ong dropped off a care package, which included high-protein snacks, sparkling water and no-salt-added seasonings to make his hospital meals more appetizing — but he notes some patients might not be able to supplement their diet.

Nourish Leadership claims that when healthcare facilities provide more appealing and tasty food, patients are not only happier, but actually spend less time in the hospital.

“We know that a patient in a hospital who is malnourished is going to stay…two to three days longer than a well-nourished patient,” Lapalme said.

“They will cost the entire system $2,000 more for this one incident.”

Bad food can also contribute to waste, Laplame said.

“Ultimately, 40% of food in hospitals…and long-term care is wasted, contributing to healthcare’s already huge greenhouse gas emissions.”

Healthy Mummy App: How to Save on Groceries and Meal Prep for a Family of Four https://kotisivurobotti.net/healthy-mummy-app-how-to-save-on-groceries-and-meal-prep-for-a-family-of-four/ Wed, 10 Aug 2022 04:01:43 +0000 https://kotisivurobotti.net/healthy-mummy-app-how-to-save-on-groceries-and-meal-prep-for-a-family-of-four/ Why you need to try the ‘three pots’ meal prep trick: Nurse mum-of-four cooks 49 meals for just $153 – and they’re as healthy as they are tasty Shelley Moore cooked 49 healthy meals for just $153 using a ‘3 pot’ meal plan The plan is to turn three bulk meals into a variety of […]]]>

Why you need to try the ‘three pots’ meal prep trick: Nurse mum-of-four cooks 49 meals for just $153 – and they’re as healthy as they are tasty

  • Shelley Moore cooked 49 healthy meals for just $153 using a ‘3 pot’ meal plan
  • The plan is to turn three bulk meals into a variety of other dishes
  • Emergency nurse, time-saving tactic helped her lose 25 pounds
  • The mum-of-four made meatball subs, curries, pies, rissoles and peanut beef

A mom of four showed off her impressive meal prep after serving 49 dishes for just $153.

Shelley Moore, from Victoria, spent just two hours in the kitchen preparing lunches and dinners using the ‘three pots’ meal plan on the Healthy Mummy app.

The simple method can be used with any recipe – just make three main dishes in bulk and turn leftovers into separate meals.

An emergency nurse, the 32-year-old is running out of time and attributes her recent 25-pound weight loss to her mega prep sessions that include beef with potatoes and peanuts, hash browns, meatball subs of meat and pumpkin curry.

“I think it’s great that taking a few hours to cook and prepare these super easy meals means that for the whole week (if not more!) I don’t have to think about what we’re going to eat for dinner or what I can bring to work,” Shelley said.

“At $3.13 per serving, I saved so much money over what I would normally spend.”

Shelley started with the dish that took the longest – beef with potatoes and peanuts – because it was four hours in the slow cooker.

She turned that into six servings of slow-cooked beef with potatoes and peanuts, five servings of beef wraps, and four servings of slow-cooked beef filos.

What did Shelley cook for her ‘three pots’ meal prep session?

Bulk Recipe 1. Bulk Baked Potatoes and Peanut Beef

This makes:

6 x Serves Potatoes and Beef with Peanuts

5 x Serves Slow Cooked Peanut Beef Wraps

4 x serves simmered beef filos

Bulk recipe 2. Rissoles and bulk vegetables

This makes:

5 x Serves Rissoles & Vegetables

6 servings x meatball subs

6 servings x Spaghetti & Meatballs

Bulk Recipe 3. Bulk Spinach and Pumpkin Curry

This makes:

5 servings x spinach and pumpkin curry

7 servings x Spinach Pumpkin Curry Pie (2 pies each)

5 portions of spinach and pumpkin curry chicken soup

She then made loose hash browns which she turned into five servings of hash browns and vegetables, six servings of meatball subs, and six servings of spaghetti and meatballs.

“While I was cooking and prepping, I had the app open on two devices – my phone and my tablet, so I could refer to two recipes at once. That way I was able to think about my next steps and keep the momentum going,” she said.

Her last bulk meal was spinach and pumpkin curry (five servings) which she made into seven spinach and pumpkin curry pies and five spinach and pumpkin curry soup.

“A pie maker is a fantastic way to make it a little quicker and easier, but you’ll have to adjust your calories with the extra dough,” Shelley says.

She made bulk hash browns which she turned into five servings of hash browns and vegetables, six servings of meatball subs, and six servings of spaghetti and meatballs.

“Now that our meals for the whole week are sorted and just need to be reheated, I will have more time to engage and communicate with my children and my partner, and maybe even get some more sleep. .”

“Next time I make a big three-pot meal, I think I’ll prep the night before – peel, dice, grate, etc. to save a little more time.”

When Shelley isn’t using bulk recipes, she saves money by regularly checking what she already has in the fridge, freezer and pantry, then customizing her meal plan accordingly.

“I save between $50 and $100 per weekly shop and that doesn’t include the money I save by not buying takeout when I come home late from work too exhausted to cook,” he said. she stated.

What are Shelley’s top meal prep tips?

* Buy vegetables when they are on sale, chop them and freeze them for later use.

* Replace vegetables in recipes with seasonal vegetables as they will be cheaper

* Consider investing in a chest freezer and buying special meat to freeze for later. Buy meat in bulk then divide and freeze it

* 3 pot meals are great for the budget as one basic prep will provide three different meals

Shelley also replaces one or more meals per week with vegetarian options.

“I save between $50 and $100 per weekly shop and that doesn’t include the money I save by not buying takeout when I come home late from work too exhausted to cook,” he said. she stated.

“I also save money by incorporating smoothies into my day, whether it’s for breakfast or lunch.

“They’re packed with so many vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and proteins that I know I’m fueling my body with exactly what it needs, but in a quick and convenient way.”

Sometimes life’s events get in the way, and cooking a healthy, sustainable meal can be the last thing on your agenda. Luckily, preparing a collection of homemade meals ahead of time can save your senior loved one time and stress!

Many different diets on the market cater to your senior’s health needs, focusing on specific food groups or nutrients your senior loved one needs in their daily diet.

  • gain or lose weight
  • Promote brain health
  • Build bone strength

Once you’ve established your senior’s specific goals, try going online with them and researching what types of foods are best for their health to incorporate into their daily meals. It can be helpful to make a list of your oldest child’s favorite meals so they can always have fun making the foods they love!

Central Avenue construction hurts businesses in Moorhead Shopping Center

Center Avenue Road Construction

Sam Goetzinger/WDAY News

MOORHEAD – It’s been a summer of cone zones at Moorhead. Construction sites, like the one on Center Avenue next to the Moorhead Center mall, have swept across the city in recent months. The repairs and upgrades are needed around town, but they’ve hurt many businesses, especially those in the mall.

“It’s funny, because you think it shouldn’t be that hard to get here, but people always say, ‘oh I had the hardest time getting here,’ because they get used to a certain way of getting here, and once that’s taken away from them it’s harder for them to understand that,” said Kris Johnson, salesman at FM Antiques and More.

Johnson says sales at the antique store have dropped 30 to 50 percent since construction began. The business had just picked up right after the pandemic, then got derailed again due to construction. But it’s not just the antique store that’s seeing the effects. Full story here.

State fairs originated in the 1800s as a way to promote agriculture through displays of livestock and agricultural products. Iowa’s first state fair in 1854 was held in Fairfield with contests for the highest grain yields, samples of oats and corn, and even a collection of birds from across the state.

Fast forward to today and there have been countless changes to State Fair with new features big and small being introduced regularly. Just like in so many years past, regular State Fair attendees can always find new things to do, plus try one of 53 new foods for 2022, including three shortlisted for Best of the year.

Here are five notable additions to this year’s acts. Although many of the following events are free after admission, keep in mind that fair admission is not included in the price of paid events.

This year, the organizers of the Iowa State Fair announced that they would attempt to break a world record for the largest cornhole tournament in the world.

To achieve this, the organizers want to recruit at least 445 participants to play cornhole on the Grand Concourse at the exhibition center from 10 a.m. on August 20.

The current world record was set with 444 players who participated in a tournament in San Diego.

For the first time ever, the Iowa State Fair plans to offer a sensory morning for people with autism, PTSD, or sensory processing disorders.

As the sounds and lights that the State Fair usually produces may be too stimulating for some, the morning of August 17 will have features that might be helpful for those who cannot normally attend. These implementations include the introduction of a calming room, designated educational zones, and sound and motion dampening, according to a press release from State Fair.

It is predicted that 2022 will see the highest number of weddings since 1984 with some 2.5 million couples getting married. That’s a lot of people potentially trying to lose weight before their big day.

The good news is that even with a limited time until you walk down the aisle, it’s still possible to lose weight quickly and safely. “Generally, weight loss involves losing one to two pounds a week. Working on weight loss efforts for a month and a half, you could lose up to 12 pounds,” says Jeanette Kimszal, RDN, NLC, Nutrition and root education. “Weight loss doesn’t have to be difficult when you focus on your goals.”

Nicole Swingle, Dt.P.echoes that sentiment, saying, “While you may be stressed out about your wedding approaching and losing weight in time, it’s possible to lose weight even a month away from your big day.”

To learn more, check out these five simple tips for losing 10 pounds or more before you say “yes.”

It’s time to eat the rainbow, folks. One strategy “for losing weight when you’re short on time is to increase your vegetable intake to help you get more dietary fiber, which will help you stay full longer and positively impact your gut health.” , says Swingle. “When you feel full, you are less likely to eat.”

Kimszal agrees. “Adding at least one serving of vegetables to each meal will help boost your fiber and nutrient intake,” she says, noting that it can help with weight loss.

Swingle shares that a simple way to lose weight before your wedding day is to stop eating out in the last 30 days before your wedding. “It’s extremely effective for weight loss because eating out adds a huge amount of calories and sodium without you realizing it,” she says. “By reducing how often you eat out, you reduce the amount of salt and calorie retention to help stay in a calorie deficit and help the balance back down.”

“One way to lose weight is to look at your diet and see how much protein you’re consuming,” says Kimszal, noting that you should aim to have lean protein at every meal.

As we have already reported, to stay in shape or lose weight, men who train for 45 minutes three to five days a week need about 0.45 grams per pound, and women with the same activity level need 0.35 grams per pound. Learn more about how much protein you need in your weight loss diet here.

Not only is it incredibly bad for your health, it also wreaks havoc on your waistline. “Eliminating sodas and other sugary drinks can help you lose weight,” says Kimszal.

In addition to regular sodas, also ditch diet sodas. “Many people turn to diet sodas to lose weight, but they can have the opposite effect,” says a certified obesity expert. Sylvia Gonsahn-Bollie, MDEmbrace You Weight & Wellness lead physician in a 2021 story for Eat this, not that!

“Finally, rating your hunger on a scale of 1 to 10 before you eat can help you lose weight because it forces you to stop and ask yourself if your body is really hungry or if you’re bored and want eat,” advises Swingle. “It aids weight loss by reducing how much and how often you eat.” As you eat, chew slowly, observe your inner experience, and follow many of these smart habits to support mind-body connection.

Remember, perspective is key. “Don’t let weight loss be your end goal. Focus on how you feel. Do you feel more energized when you stand up? That’s what’s most important,” Kimszal says. And on your wedding day, feeling energized and excited is far more important than slipping into a smaller suit size or being able to get another inch of your wedding dress tailored.

With inflation driving up the price of groceries, Sydney’s mum said meal prep could be the key to lowering grocery bills.

She said to plan meals ahead, create an organized list of shopping items to stick to at the supermarket, start slow so you don’t overwhelm yourself, and set a time to cook during your weekly routine, and stick to it no matter what.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Katie shared her advice on how she keeps her grocery budget between just $100 and $120 for her family of three.

Sydney mum and teacher Katie Lolas, who feeds her family of three for $120 a week, has revealed her six tips for staying organized and saving big on your weekly grocery bill

1. ORGANIZE YOUR SHOPPING LIST BY AISLE – AND ALLOW THREE CRAZY ITEMS

To save money at the supermarket, the 36-year-old teacher said to create an organized list to stick to.

“Instead of walking into a store and grabbing the items you ‘think’ you need or want at the moment, let me help you get organized and focus on the items you actually need. need – I call it ‘targeted grocery shopping,'” she told FEMAIL. .

“When you practice targeted shopping at the grocery store, you’ll find that you save money, stick to your meal plan, create less food waste, and buy healthier foods.”

To save money at the supermarket, Katie said to create an organized list to stick to and only let yourself buy three unscheduled items from each store.

To save money at the supermarket, Katie said to create an organized list to stick to and only let yourself buy three unscheduled items from each store.

She said to organize your shopping list for a quick trip to the grocery store in two ways – by aisle or section and how you normally walk around the store.

“When I walk into my local Woolies, I usually walk around in this order: fresh produce, meats, dairy, canned, etc. and that’s how I organize my list,” she said.

“This ensures I never miss an item and was in and out in less than 20 minutes.”

Katie said to stick to your list making sure to check off every item and only allow yourself to buy three things that aren’t on your plan that you’re either curious to try or enjoy, but which you don’t necessarily need.

‘Go for the house brands too! Especially for basic items,” she said.

“There will never be enough of a difference in taste or quality of basic items to justify the price hike, so always go for the unbranded option.”

2. DON’T START PREPARING ALL THE MEALS FOR THE WEEK

Katie said meal prepping is supposed to make your life easier, not daunting, so avoid trying to prep every breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack for the entire week.

“The number one mistake I see people make when deciding to start meal prepping is taking too many things at once rather than starting slow,” she said.

“Contrary to popular belief, meal prep doesn’t mean preparing all your meals and snacks for a week,” she said.

Katie said meal prepping is supposed to make your life easier, not overwhelm you, so avoid trying to prep every breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack for the entire week.

Katie said meal prepping is supposed to make your life easier, not overwhelm you, so avoid trying to prep every breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack for the entire week.

Katie recommended starting with the meals you struggle with the most during the week and focusing on them.

“So if you’re someone who rushes in the morning and doesn’t have time to cook a good meal, consider making something you can pack like oatmeal, muffins or egg cups for the night,” she said.

“If you’re someone who finds herself at the office ordering Uber Eats for lunch three times a week, consider packing a salad or ingredients for a healthy sandwich or wrap.”

3. Lock in a time and stick to it

Katie said start slow, lock in a time when you plan to cook and stick to it, as you’re more likely to commit to a task and make it part of your weekly routine.

“If you’re new to meal prep, set yourself a time limit and once that time is up, walk away from the kitchen.” If that means you only make one recipe, that’s still one meal you’ve covered this week,” she said.

‘Eventually you will become more efficient in the kitchen in the given time. It’s always helpful to also remember that preparing meals now will save you time in the long run.

4. PLAN TO NOT BE TEMPTED BY TAKE-OUT

Katie said the most effective way to control your food budget is to plan, prepare and portion out meals in advance.

“You won’t need to look for quick, processed options because you’ll have healthy ones ready to eat,” she says.

She said meal prep and planning will save you money because you won’t be tempted to go out or order takeout.

‘It’s better value for money. With the money you spend on one meal, you can buy ingredients that will span multiple meals!

5. START WITH BIG MEALS AND CLEAN UP AS YOU GO

“Staying organized while preparing meals will make the whole process easier. I always start cooking with what takes the most time and do a few things at a time,” she said.

Katie uses a cooktop where she can cook three pots and pans at once without feeling cluttered.

“I also say a clean space is a productive space, wipe down the benches while you cook and if you’re waiting for something to end up in the oven, take the time to do the dishes,” she said.

6. INVEST IN A QUALITY KITCHEN BUY

Katie also recommended investing in high-quality appliances, containers and equipment to save money in the long run and reheat prepared meals quickly.

“I love the quick heat up features of my Westinghouse oven and cooktop, when I have little time to prep I know I won’t have to wait an extra five minutes for my appliances to heat up. good temperature,” she said.

‘In addition, the Quick Cook function is perfect for cooking frozen meals that I have prepared. All I do is place the food in the oven straight from the freezer and heat it. Cooks quickly and evenly every time.

Katie uses good quality meal prep containers like Sistema and Meal Prep Australia and for breakfast foods she uses mason jars from Kmart or Reject Shop.

She swears by her Phillips XXL air fryer which she often uses to quickly cook chicken, steak, meatballs, patties and pork chops.
