            Honey chicken is not at all tough to cook. It is one of my favorite dishes. The glazing, glowing chicken with hints of sweet, tangy, salty flavors can be eaten with white rice, fried rice, or my personal favorite, jasmine rice. Just keep in check that you don’t over sweet the flavor, or put excess sauces in. It might just bitter the taste.

            6. Honey Cake with Caramalized Pears

              It would be unfair if I offer you no sweet dish made out of honey, beside all those sweet and savoury ones. So here is a simple cake infused with honey. The recipe is to the point, with no extra effort needed. You can top the cake off with caramalized pears, or you can put fresh strawberries, or any other berries, on it. If you go for fresh fruits, then drizzle some honey over them. This cake will surely top your, and your children’s favorite list.

              Besides making main meals, or desserts, honey can be used in drinks, in waffles, fruits, yogurts, and in many other items. This golden sticky yum is very versatile. Lastly, I would like to let you know that despite having so many scientific benefits, and versatility in cooking, it is always recommended not to feed honey to infants who are below one year. It is because honey contains spores of bacteria which can attack your infant’s undeveloped digestive system, and can cause botulism, a rare, but dangerous illness. Other than this, you can thoroughly enjoy food made out of honey. This liquid sure knows how to make dishes tastier!

              How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

              How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

              Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

              But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

              No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

              Advertising

              When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

              1. Relax as You Meditate

              A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

              Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

              Advertising

              Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

              2. Practice Daily Affirmations

              Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

              What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

              Advertising

              So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

              1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
              2. Use present tense (I have)
              3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
              4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

              Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

              Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

              Advertising

              I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
              My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

              Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.
