Muffin Tops Belong On Muffins

making

It’s the New Year, so time for a New You…and the obligatory quest to loose some pounds and that dreaded “muffin top”.  But can muffins be a healthy part of a new diet plan, based on a sound breakfast to start the day?  Rather than “the low fat muffin”  remake the home baked.  Most fat in muffins comes from plant oils, which is a  “good” fat—an unsaturated fat that is healthy for the heart. If you take out fat, what’s left? White flour and sugar—the perfect recipe for weight gain.  Instead of buying low fat muffins, modify your recipe…muffin top

1. Downsize the portions.

2. Go whole on the grains.

3. Incorporate fruits or nuts.

Go for the Muffin Makeover – maybe the Whole Wheat Banana Muffin!  In the meantime, give Sculptures everyday wear a try too….Does wonders for that other muffin top.

The Sculptures Everyday Wear garment is designed to slim and tone.  It hides little bulges, mainly the muffin top, the back, stomach and thighs and creates a smooth line.  If there is too much fat, the shapeware will move it somewhere else, so fit is key.

Designed to flatten the stomach and sculpt the torso, derriere, midriff and in some cases thighs – all is accomplished with no visible seams. Compression shapewear looks great under slim fitting dresses, skirts and tight shirts and yes, even form fitting pants.

Eating Locally, Changing the Way America Eats

MH900443965

Eating well improves health and appearance.  Knowing where your food comes from and who it comes from is comforting knowledge.  Local agriculture fuels strong communities and nourishes the shift to farm-fresh foods.  Not only do locally grown produce and organic foods taste better, support community growth, and utilize less fuel in transportation, but local foods have greater nutrient content.  Regional food systems support sustainability; which in turn increases biological diversity.  The cultivation of different varieties of a species maximizes land and the development of farmers’ markets. The United States Dept. of Agriculture reports the number of U.S. farmers’ markets to be well over 7,000; 4 times the number found in 1994.

You have the choice; you are what you eat!
