You’ll Be Excited To See That Variety Helps You Stay On Track

You need to switch it up and make sure that you are allowing yourself healthy cheats in order to maintain weight loss. Let’s try to make this a lifestyle change instead of a diet. The only way that is going to work is if you are able to find new ways to satisfy the cravings. Feel like you are cheating, but watch the scale numbers and say “What? I don’t see any cheating.”

A more detailed recipe and information on this trend is available at the following link.

First thing’s first, here are the ingredients:

  • 1 cauliflower head (small) cut into florets
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 oz grated Parmesan
  • 1 oz grated comte, appenzeller or mature cheddar cheese (don’t feel bad I had to google what those were too)
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 oz grated comte and mature cheddar cheese
  • 1 large pickled gherkin or jalapeno finely sliced (optional-this doesn’t make my list)

To make the bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Line a baking sheet and liberally grease that puppy. No sticking on our watch. Set aside.
  3. “Rice” the cauliflower. If you have worked much with cauliflower while low carbing, you may be familiar with this term. Basically, you take your florets and put them in the food processor. Pulse until the consistency is of rice or a fine crumb.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan on a low-medium heat. We are getting to the good part. Add the cauliflower rice (about three cups) and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir continually. According to the link, you are going to want the water to evaporate, but you don’t want color to appear on the cauliflower. The rice needs to be dry or it will end up being too mushy.
  5. Move the rice to a mixing bowl. Add egg, parmesan (it’s starting to come together now), comte, and salt. Mix well and then spread mixture onto the pan that was set aside. Shape into 4 bread squares. Place it in the oven to bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. Remove and let it cool for 10 minutes. Peel the slices from the parchment paper.

To Assemble the Cauliflower Grilled Cheese:

1. Heat the pan over medium heat. Butter one side of each slice of cauliflower bread. Put the buttered side down on the pan. You know this part — it’s just like regular grilled cheese.
2. Cover the bread liberally with your chosen cheese, if you are adding gherkin or jalapeño, add now. Top with the remaining slice of cauliflower bread, buttered-side up.
3. Cook until golden brown, usually not more than four minutes. Flip and do the other side.
4. Serve with hot sauce, a salad, and your condiments of choice. Our house would probably have ketchup.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
