Answering Questions About Inulin Powder You Might Want To Know
Today we’re doing a taste test and experiment to see if this Organic Inulin powder tastes good, and find out whether or not it works good as an emulsifier.
In the video below, my whole family gives you their opinion to help you decide whether or not you want to add inulin fiber to your protein drinks or use it in any other way.
You’ll also see the kinds of protein powder I’m currently using. I think the blend I’ve come up with tastes great and I like the specific nutritional benefits of these 2 protein powders together. Hope you enjoy them too.

Today I’ve got my family together to Taste Test PG Tips & Yorkshire Red Black Teas to let you know what we think is better. Hopefully this will help you with your decision about which tea to buy.
I first tasted PG Tips at a cousin’s house, and couldn’t believe how good it tasted. I usually go for organic teas, but PG Tips was the only tea he had that I wanted to try, and the experience turned out to be a nice surprise.
Later I wanted to get some PG Tips for myself, and that inspired me to look for other quality teas that were Specifically Tips.
To keep a long story short, I didn’t find another Tea Tip to try yet, but in the reviews I was reading about PG Tips some people were sharing that they liked Yorkshire Tea.
I decided to try it, taste taste it with my family, and share that experience with you. Watch the video below to see which tea we thought was better.
Both Yorkshire Red and PG Tips are black teas, packaged in England, that are very popular in the United States.
I’m pretty sure the Yorkshire Red tea is not the tea tips, but I could be wrong about that.
One way or another, I hope you like this video, and it helps you to make a good choice between these two black teas.
On that note, I’m on the lookout for the highest quality teas, and I want to know what you are drinking and like.
I prefer organic teas, but I’m happy to know about any tea you think is super high quality and tastes great.
If you know any other companies that use the tips of the tea plant specifically, please let me know by commenting on this post.

I was dating my then boyfriend, husband now, for just a little while, when we were trying diets and different exercise routines regularly. I was gaining and loosing weight, looked less and more healthy, depending what crazy idea we were experimenting on for the moment.
I was desperately trying to look good and since we have been dating only for a little while, straight out sexy, specifically to my boyfriend. However I was 23 and would have tried every program and promise for any ok results, just to understand myself better and did I mention that I wanted to look hot?:)))
Luckily I had a revolutionary, simple idea. It was simple in the way that it was the easiest thing to do with the most rewards. Trust me when I say, it has instantly changed my life!
What is sexy? What is sexy to you? What makes a woman sexy? I have blurted out these questions and was eagerly listening to his answers. I knew what he will say. Big breasts, round booty, make up and blonde hair, I probably have fit every sex symbol hotness mark in one, little idea, which I was sure about and worked hard towards to gain every single aspect of.
What he said, simply shocked me!
Now I am sure different guys would have completely different answers to this question. I am sure that for a lot of guys the size of the breasts matters a lot or the booty, or the hair color or the clothes, ect. However more videos I have watched on this subject, more guys I have listened to, I was even more amazed.
“Healthy is sexy” said Sye first. Wow, are you kidding with me? Than I must be really sexy because I was always about health 🙂 “Femininity, kindness, care, nurturing, listening…those are sexy” he went on about it.
Wow, wow, wow, then why is every guy after the hottest chick? They are, but not necessarily looking for a relationship…putting it the nicest way 🙂
Then years later he said something about that subject again, he called self control sexy and a woman who doesn’t over indulge. That was a little more personal, I guess 🙂 But it hit me on the right spot and I have turned his advice to work instantly and I have developed a self control system that rocked my whole world, thanks to that one remark.
So where am I going with this?
Ask questions! Don’t just assume that you know your men’s deepest secrets and desires. You love each other, it is safe to pop the question, “what makes a woman sexy?”
Then just wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, then listen and listen more and listen more and he basically will tell you what he does like about you and if you listen even more, he will even tell you what he likes in other women better. Then if you are a smart woman, and why wouldn’t you be, you will soak his words up to your heart and not take it personally but as a chance for growth.
Then I would ask more questions to make it sure you fully understand, what the heck he is talking about and I would even go as far as say, “How can I do that? How can I be like that? What do you recommend for me? Then he gets really excited, because he knows that you didn’t misunderstood him and wont be angry at him and he is in the safe zone and he will tell you, voluntarily all of his secrets he ever had.
Now I think this would work with a friend, a mother, father, your kids, with basically anybody who knows you well enough and I go even further, why would this question not work with strangers as well? Watch some of the whats sexy videos on youtube and I guarantee they will blow your mind.
I told Sye I want to interview him for 5 minutes. After making this 26 minutes video, I felt like I could talk with him about this subject for another hour! Then I wanted to talk about man, what makes man sexy? I so will make another video about that, I have sooo much to say about that :)))
Watch our video, give us a thumbs up and let me know in the comments, what you think makes a woman sexy please! 🙂
I buy Cliff Bars here and there to hide in my cupboard for emergencies. However having three young, growing children feels a lot like emergency quite often 🙂
There are also only a certain amount of cliff bars I can eat or want to keep paying for. I like Cliff Bars, they have quality ingredients but I always do just as good or often better when I make some snack myself.
However that lots of times require the use of nuts. I think nuts are wonderful but the human body fills up with them quick. Plus having them in a power ball it’s way too easy to over eat them. They also are expensive, have you noticed how much the price of nuts went up the last few years?
So I was super excited to try something new, refreshing, grainy and velvety at the same time. It passes the test of my kids, they officially are in love with these coffee balls.
I used shredded coconut as the main body for the recipe. Next time I will turn the shredded coconut to coconut butter and will report you which bar I like better. This version I will share with you today is more grainy, if you blend your shredded coconut or use coconut butter, you will get a more smooth consistency.
Also feel free to alter the amount of the different ingredients. You like it chocolatey, put more cacao powder in it. You want more crunchiness, add more cacao nibs. Do you want it to Ben more smooth, add more coconut oil. Is sweet and salty your style? Add more salt. No craving for coffeine, use decaf coffee or change to instant coffe for a less grainy taste.
This recipe will give you the fundamental idea and you tailor it to your liking. Some people say they always use a recipe, some go by their instincts. This recipe isn’t the perfect mixture of these two groups of people.
2C Shredded Coconut
3 Tbs Coconut Oil
1 Tbs Cocoa Nibs
1Tbs Cacao Powder
1 Tbs Ground Coffee
1/4 tsp salt
Honey, just enough to process the ingredients into a ball
1 tsp Vanilla
Process the ingredients in a food processor and form them into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate in a sandwich bag and use them for energy bars when needed or in a hurry.
I hope you enjoy them 🙂
My kids can’t wait for me to make another batch of these yummy and super healthy treats.
I have to admit it, the weakest part of my body was always my core strength. Therefor I used to overdo ab workouts even though I have never even liked them. They were always hard to do for me since my core strength wasn’t there to help me through the workout.
I kind of managed somehow since I was always active in my life and was in shape most of the time. I have strengthened my abs just enough to not have any physical problems and have enough core power to feel strong and balanced.
However throughout the years this situation got worse and worse and then I got under the spell of the idea that if one does enough exercise, there is no need for extra, specific abs and core workout. Tell you honestly, I was just relived that there is any kind of scientific study that gives me an excuse not to have to work on my abdominal muscles. So I didn’t research it too long, I jumped on the wagon and didn’t do anything for my mid section other than staying active, as I have mentioned that before and sticking to my regular workout routine, which has contained sometimes less sometimes more whole body exercises, which made me believe that my abs are taken care of.
Then things got even worse. I got blessed with three kids 🙂 After my third pregnancy my abdominal muscles didn’t ever get to where they were before the pregnancies. I have read a lot about it and realized that this condition is quite common after a woman had several pregnancies. I had an opening about a two and a half finger wide, which means that I could fit two and a little of my third finger, put next to each other in the opening between my abdominal muscles. That’s the way people measure how wide the opening is.
First that discovery didn’t change anything and I still wasn’t doing any abs strengthening exercises. Since I had that condition, I believed its better to leave it alone now, until my ab muscles close.
But they didn’t and sometimes the opening actually widened instead of getting better. I also had a pouchy look to my stomach, to my lower abdominals, giving the illusion that my tummy was poking out, when actually I just had weak ab muscles and the opening enabled a bulging, which didn’t cause any pain, discomfort or physical problems, I was happily doing long runs, 30-60 minutes whole body exercises, even worked out with heavy weights, and the bulging wasn’t really a bulging, it just felt like it 🙂
Then I have started to reconsider of the idea that one doesn’t have to do extra ab moves, if the person is active and what I have described above. I have slowly, a little even too slowly, after several years, started to realize that unless I do something about it, my situation is going to be worse and worse. One day I have decided to start to do ab workouts again and being the stubborn person I am I have jumped full hearted into working on flattening my stomach and work my core up to a power house.
Obviously that was a mistake. I wish I would have done more research on that subject. I don’t think its a common mistake to start to do lots of abdominal exercises but in my condition it was. I have worked out a lot and used heavy weights, then I have just started to do the same, incorporating ab workout routines every time I have worked out and even on days when I didn’t, I still challenged my mid section.
After about 5 months of doing that, I got injured with a hernia, right above the belly button. That was the peak of the mistreating of my stomach area for several years or maybe even decades. That was the unavoidable sign that I had to change something about that.
The hernia was minor, an easy fix, but it kept me thinking… I have started to research everything about open abdominals and abs generally. I have read everything I cold about these two subjects and I have made a plan.
I had to learn how to live with open abdominals and how to make the condition better and I had to educate myself about how to strenghten the core generally. All of the research in these two subjects benefited me tremendously.
Finally I had hope, that I can turn the years of abuse around and build a power house, a foundation for my body in a healthy, most structured and scientific way.
However, I didnt go to far with my enthusiasm. I did some changes. I have learned what abs exercises to do and how to do popular abs exercises to actually narrow the opening in my abdominals and create a steel hard core. First I have only done the alternated,open abs workouts, then later, when I have felt strong enough and saw that I am ok, started to add common ab moves.
I still havent enjoyed them tremendously, but I didnt hate them anymore and expected great results from my plan. I have seen improvements right away and I should have stayed with my routine, but I didnt. As soon as I have gained my strengh and confidence back and flattened my belly more than ever before, I have fell into the old habit of ignoring the mid section. Here and there I still have incorporated ab workouts but not near enough.
Just recently, in the last year I have finally decided to do abs regularly, remebering all the smart things I have learned and experienced throughout the years. I did incorporate a minimal amount of abs in my workout days a couple times a week, max. it was more about, “Abs, checkmark” kind of feeling.
Now I am done with old habits and old believes and hopes that one day my tummy will magically flatten and strenghten itself. It won’t. Now don’t give me wrong, I am not complaining at all. I am in shape and proud of my body, I dont feel like my stomach is bulging out. (But is sure feels like it sometimes).
I just want to develop and maintain the strongest core I can possibly can, through regular, daily exercises. I calculated that about 10 minutes abs a day, 6 times a week will get me the famous results I am looking for, and this time it would be hard to change my mind about it.
I just needed some good abs workout routines.
So let me introduce to you my first, 5 Minutes Abs Challenge video, which hopefully will be one of many in the future to come. In this video I focus a lot on the obliques, creating a nice, welcoming frame for the lower and upper abdominal muscles.
As I said, I will do them for about 10 minutes a day, about 5 days a week. In the case of this video, since it’s 5 minutes long, I will do the routine twice, starting the video again, when it’s over.
The video I’ve posted here is a talk between James Grage, Dr. Osbourne, and Whitney Reid about the Keto Diet.
Update: Since I created this post, the video was removed from Youtube. I apologize because it was such a helpful video for understanding the keto diet. I’ll do the best I can to find another video that is as informative about keto diets as this one was.
They are not so much debating the ketogenic diet, as they are having a friendly and informative conversation about it.
Keep in mind these folks have tried the keto diet and Dr. Osbourne has helped many people to do some form of what people refer to as the Keto Diet.
I’ve posted it because it reveals a lot of truth about Keto and being in ketosis. (Update: The debate video about ketogenic diets was removed so I replaced it with another video from Dr. Brett Osborn)
Right now there’s a lot of interest in doing a Keto Diet, but most people don’t really understand what that means, and many people believe they are following a keto diet, but they are not actually in ketosis.
This video clears up a lot of the confusion and will help others to really understand what they are getting into when they are considering following a diet like this.
Some of the questions answered are about the ketogenic diet are:
Can you build muscle mass while you are in Ketosis?
Do you need to be in Ketosis to lose weight?
What does it really take to be in ketosis?
There are many other questions answered about the Ketogenic Diet in the video, and if you have the patience to listen to this talk, you’ll learn a lot, and you’ll probably be a little surprised even if you are familiar with Keto.
