Brain Food

Now you know I just found out about the following Brain Foods while watching a segment of Impact Theory, hosted by Tom Bilyeu and his guest Jim Kwik. Fascinating would be a gross understatement. I love learning! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpZ6j5f_Fsc   JIM KWIK  http://impacttheory.com/episode/jim-kwik/

Brain Foods  You, your brain,  your memory.

Blueberries blueberries-894839_960_720it’s one of the highest antioxidant-rich foods known to man, including vitamin C and vitamin K and fiber. Because of their high levels of gallic acid, blueberries are especially good at protecting our brains from degeneration and stress.

3)

Broccoli broccoli

It’s one of the best brain foods out there. Thanks to its high levels of vitamin K and choline, it will help keep your memory sharp.

Front Porch Front Page

Front Porch Front Page is my way of saying “Let’s not be strangers.”  Not necessarily to be my friend and then that would be O.K…  FPFP is a Good News platform unless I feel something  very important needs to be shared here or on www.FrontPorchFaceBook.com or www.FPFPWorld.com . Not likely but for full disclosure purposes, I’m just saying.

We (when I say we, that means me and a little help from my friends) distribute about 1200-1300 copies door-to-door, covering an area ranging from Scott Drive to Fifth Street, and from Save Mart out to roughly Walmart on my walking route. On occasions, you may find an issue wandering around “anywhere”. We’ve strengthened our online presence through our updated website now located at @ www.FrontPorchFaceBook.com or www.FPFPWorld.com

An issue is printed every 30 days. Needless to say, this takes some commitment and dedication.

Front Porch Front Page is a very informal and unstructured operation, which are perhaps both positive and negative. Typically, there is a theme of “What is happen in Atwater, I am a Free Spirt and “This is what it is.” If you want to know more about me check out any of my social media pages i.e. https://www.linkedin.com/in/gailswilson . I am a fun loving observer who is also an Great Grandmother. Don’t hold that against me. Time won’t stand still for you, either. I have been a resident of Atwater since June 2009. I came with hopes, dreams and ATT. Well, most of you know the end of that story. https://www.castleairmuseum.org/collection

I re-invent myself regularly, it’s in my blood, and I was born and raised in Texas. Texans are known for creating means and ways out of pure necessity. FPFP is yet another creation. Publishing and Sharing (I don’t sell, I share). What better way to do both that “Front Porch Front Page”!

Front Porch Front Page will always be distributed free of charge. So where does the money come from?  My other creation www.ServiceConnection.BIZ.  If interested and you have a business that could use some honest diligent marketing, I would suggest you check it out. If you would like to share your “Business Related Thought” please check out www.ServiceConnection.BIZ otherwise, I hope you enjoy this “7 Wonders of Atwater”

Thank you

Hate Vegetables – Love Chopped Salad

Hate Vegetables – Love Chopped  Salad Chopped Salad 3

Under no circumstances, what-so-ever, would I intentionally eat 90% of the ingredients in this salad.
Lettuce, tomatoes, provolone cheese, Genoa salami, and artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, green peppers, zucchini, and pitted black olives, pepperoncini, broccoli, banana peppers, carrots, cucumbers.
I must confess, I love, love, love most Chopped Salads.
I know I haven’t been known to eat vegetables. I also know that adding fresh greens to my diet can reduce my risk of cancer.
Low-Energy-Density Vegetables    Style Chopped Salad
Eating foods that are low in energy density — or calories per gram — helps you feel full even when you eat fewer calories, making it easier to lose weight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Vegetables in general tend to be low in energy density, but non-starchy vegetables are lower in energy density than starchy vegetables. Fill half of your plate at each meal with these vegetables, which include salad greens, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, turnips, radishes, celery, peppers, eggplant, beets, artichokes and cabbage. http://www.livestrong.com/article/375405-the-best-vegetables-to-eat-for-weight-loss/  

Italian Chopped Salad
Change can be good and taste good, too.
So the next time you think vegetables, think Chopped Salad.
Try it you just may like it.
