"Your environment for success instead. It's easy to intend to have just a few oreos and then finish off a whole row. You can promise yourself that you won't hit snooze before you go to bed but heavy different perspective at six. Am you can go into the bookstore just to browse and end up buying an armload of books. It happens to all of us so don't feel bad about yourself while self awareness and self regulation are great exercising. Willpower is really hard so rather than relying on willpower too often. When you can change your environment see can make great choices effortlessly. It can look something like this if you have trouble. Not eating the whole bag of doritos. The whole pint of ben and jerry's by a single size bag of chips or a four ounce container of ice cream instead then you can enjoy your treat without needing to tear yourself away. Will you pay more per ounce for a single serving container than you would for. The full size will sure. But you're avoiding an internal conflict between your urge to devour every bite and your intention to eat a small portion. That's worth a dollar to. And hey if you would have eaten the whole point of ben and jerry's well the four ounce container cost less. So you're saving money after all as for the temptation to hit snooze. Put your alarm clock far away from your bed that way you have to get out of bed to turn it off when it's dawn and the alarm is blasting from ten feet away. It doesn't take willpower to get out of bed. Just a desire for quiet and once you're up it's easier to stay up if you want to browse but not by leave your credit card at home or in the car or bring only as much cash as you're okay with spending this is especially helpful for places like farmers markets craft fairs where you see so many beautiful things and want to buy them all but really. How much produce does your family eat. And how many people on your christmas list need a pottery bowl or a handwoven scarf designing your environment can help you avoid things. You don't want to do and also help you to do things that you do wanna do wanna get more exercise. Don't buy a permit for the garage closest to your office instead. Make it your norm to park in a lot.

"Hey listeners lately. We've been doing everything from home working from home exercising from home schooling from home breakfast lunch and dinner from home wishing we were anywhere on the planet from home and with all this extra time. We're realizing how important it is to make sure our place is the right place. Inter apartments dot com with the most listings and powerful search tools. It's easy to find exactly what you need. Apartments dot com the most popular place to find a place. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good morning this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to time the little things in our efforts to streamline our lives we can become obsessed with minimizing or avoiding certain tasks but instead of wondering how long something takes you can set a timer and find out then. You can make an informed decision about whether or not a given activity is worth getting worked up about. I think about the duration of little tasks. Every time i empty the dishwasher. Trust me. I have never liked emptying the dishwasher. I don't know that anyone does. And before i began studying time. If someone asked me how long. I spent emptying the dishwasher. Each week i might have given some ridiculous figure like three hours. Some tasks seem to take forever because they're an engaging you are not using your skills you are not being challenged these tasks just have to get done and so the tendency is to look for ways to be efficient or to chuck these tasks from our lists and i would see that i could grab more plates at a time or grab a bowl with my left hand and a glass of my right hand because that corresponds with the locations in my cupboards. I played around with loading the dishwasher. So that more of the spoons were on one side of the silverware compartment and more forks on the other then. I elected to time the process emptying the dishwasher takes five minutes since this chore is shared across multiple people in my house. I'm probably devoting fifteen minutes a week to it. This is less time than i spend staring off into space forgetting. What i came into a room for. I think i can safely stop. Fretting that emptying the dishwasher is keeping me from living. The life i want. I'm sure we can all think of these moments of seeming inefficiency waiting for an older garage door to go up. You're doing nothing and nothing is being asked of you. You are very aware of your time because you are waiting and so sometimes you get impatient. Just park outside. But even a very rickety old door takes maybe fifteen seconds twenty seconds. You don't need to use that time to survey your to do list. You can just sit there. Take a few deep breaths or something motivational or not. You'll be okay sometimes. Putting in a few inefficient minutes can even improve the situation. I have very straight hair. That looks better. If i use a curling iron to put a few waves in it and i used to over estimate how much time it took me to get ready for things. When i needed to look presentable until i realized that i can brush my teeth in the minute it takes for the iron to heat up and then i can put in my waves and about four minutes building. This into my getting ready. Routine doesn't actually require waking up twenty minutes early so why not take the extra four minutes and feel more confident. Even that cliche of boring un-engaged time waiting for a pot to boil doesn't take that long. An electric kettle can boil enough water for two cups of tea in about three and a half minutes boiling enough water for a single serving of spaghetti or oatmeal in a pot on the stove is similar. If you just stood there watching it you would hardly notice the difference in your life. You certainly aren't winning. Some major efficiency award by using the time to delete e mails instead and i'd argue that sometimes wasting little. Bits of time has an upside just as a wealthy person. Doesn't fret about the price of apples. And whether they were ten cents cheaper last week. A person with an abundant perspective on time. Doesn't fret about the occasional inefficiency. You have more than enough time for what you wanna do in life waiting a few seconds for the garage door to go up. It's like saying keep the change is scheduled doesn't feel less crazy and a life doesn't feel richer because of a few seconds shaved off here and there indeed. The opposite is probably true. A little inefficiency can make you feel time rich and these moments of abundance good so if you are getting impatient about tiny bits of time get some facts time yourself and see how long these demands on your time. Actually take then. You can make an informed decision about whether they're really burdens. In the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our top.

Interview With Developer, Jason Rohrer
"So i wanna get into prodi december. What is it and why did you created so project. December is a system that allows Human being to have a back and forth conversation with an artificial personality like dialogue through text is you can type questions to artificial personality for example and the Artificial personality will answer back and you can have a back and forth. That goes on from there. And it's based on these underlying text engines that came into the world within the past year and a half or so basically text completion engines right so the these engines allow you to provide a prompt to the system. For example you might give the first few lines of banana cream pie recipe for example and then the artificial intelligence will continue generating tax to complete whatever you have started right so complete the rest of the recipe for example. You start giving it the first few lines of a poem. It'll right the rest of the poem. If you give it fi first few lyrics of a rap song rap lyrics for you if you give it the first few sentences from a paragraph or monopoly will continue writing the rest of the novel for you so this is pretty fascinating technology because it can write text very convincingly but then the question is what do you use it for. A lot of people are like well. Use it to write my blog from me or i'll use it to tweet from here. Use it to write magazine articles or books or something like that but it turns out that kind of a firehose hose of language in a way right once the starts going and starts generating text based on what you said. It just keeps going off in its own direction and it kind of goes off into bizarre directions. Very so project december tries to leverage this text completion service to enable a dialogue back and forth between a human user. And that kind of keeps they i on track more and keeps it from kind of going off into these strange directions. Like for example. If you ask it to generate a banana cream pie recipe might start generating. Something seems very sensible says. Step one get three eggs and two cups of sugar and so much lower and so on and three sticks of butter but then by the end of the recipe it's talking about you know grinding a mouse and putting it in the recipe or something right but in a dialogue the human being intervening every couple of sentences right and so that back and forth kind of keeps the ai on track and keeps it going into a flow of a conversation that can become very convincing for the human user

"Is to plan your exit. I mean your actual physical exit from things though. We'll discuss the importance of planning endings. In general in future episodes. I know as. I'm recording this. That many of us haven't gone to big events in a while but someday we will by thinking through the logistics of leaving. You can save yourself all kinds of time. I checked my time. And i've realized over the years that i have spent some non zero quantity of time stuck in the parking lot by the eagles stadium. A few years ago on an early may day. My husband and i parked there to run the broad street ten mile race afterwards. The reality of many thousands of runners running with us meant that we spent longer trying to leave the parking lot than we did running and were not that fast. My ten year old son has asked for eagles tickets for the past few years for his birthday. Let's just say that you either need to leave at halftime or plan on leaving at least ninety minutes after the event because otherwise you will go nowhere fast or at least you might go nowhere fast but not if you take before breakfast listener. Lisa's advice. Lisa wrote in that. When i have a choice at events i plan my exit. If i'm going to a concert. Large event grocery shopping. I do not take the first available space. I keep driving noticing the exit signs and park in a spot that is heading in the right direction and in front of everyone else. That will be leaving at the same time. This has saved so much time after events. She's absolutely right and also right that most of us don't think about this when we go to big events where likely running late or eager to find parking so we take whatever spot we see. We feel excited if it looks like. We're relatively close to the venue. We don't even think about the direction of traffic or of heading over to the downside of the parking garage and then when we leave with tens of thousands of other people we learned that will be looping around the lot or the garage or having to turn left or something else that will add a frustratingly long block of time at the end. That's especially annoying when all you want to do is go home park by the exit and this won't be the case or you could be really smart about your exit spice skipping the parking altogether. We finally solve the issue of epic exits at eagles games by taking uber to the stadium. Catching the subway after the game to head a few stops farther north then catching an uber there and some other neighborhood far away from the crowds this past fall. My son and i were home in less time than it took us to travel one hundred yards in our car the year before. We were feeling very good that we'd plan to our exit. I know that many people aren't going many places these days especially not places with crowds but the next time in the future when you do go somewhere with lots of other people really think through the exit situation. What choices will enable you to leave quickly. A little thought him save you hours. In the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

"Some for yourself to. After months of everyone sitting around the house. I've been trying to get my kids to be more active so i asked them to think up. What kind of activities they'd like to do. In addition to pretty standard sports answers. The kids mentioned rock climbing horseback riding and archery that last one i blame on some of them reading the hunger games. I dutifully did my research and well. I didn't locate any archery opportunities. I did wind up signing them up for rock climbing classes pretty near our house. The kids are quite excited about this. Which got me thinking. There are probably things. I'd like to try to for years. I have put on my resolution list that i would like to sign up for voice lessons but year after year. Life gets busy and i never quite decide to take it on. I did join a choir. So that's something of course but individual lessons would make me improve faster. So maybe that is worth pursuing. If you have a hobby or interest that you've been neglecting signing up for a few lessons might be wise for starters lessons introduce accountability. I could practice my skills on my own but knowing that someone expects me to show up or at least log in at a certain time is different putting money into something also helps us take it seriously and of course the good teacher can help you see things that you can't as you find practical ways to improve your craft. You'll want to spend more time on it. Progress is motivational now. I know it can be hard to make time in a busy life for anything. That doesn't have to happen. One practical suggestion designate. One night. A week for you. If you've got kids your partner can cover. You agree likewise to cover one night a week for your partner to pursue something if you don't have kids but you do work long unpredictable hours. I'd note that work emergencies seem far less likely to happen after hours on fridays a six. Pm friday lesson might be relatively easy to make happen. You'll start the weekend on a high note clearly shifting into the not work from the work part of your life in any case. Spend some time today thinking about what skill craft or hobby. You might enjoy getting better at research. Your options some places are open for in person lessons and these days the virtual offerings are far better than ever before you might be able to sign up for lessons with someone amazing who lives on the other side of the country or even in another country which probably wouldn't have happened before the pandemic. It's worth checking out once you find something. Sign up for a few lessons. One lesson is good. If you're a reluctant. But i'd aim for at least three to four to give yourself a chance to really try it out. You're not just dabbling. You're the sort of person who does rock climbing archery horseback riding. If you just can't make it work fine but you just might find yourself viewing time as a lot more fun. In the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

Because when you celebrate at walt disney world resort. nothing could be more magical to learn more checkout disneyworld dot com slash before breakfast. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheart radio. Good morning. this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is for those of you who bill time for a living. There is a big debate about whether this is the right approach to serving clients. But if you do it. Certain practices can help. Make sure that you are more efficient and focused during the time you plan to work. Whenever i tell people to track their time i suggest they think of themselves as lawyers billing their time to different projects intriguingly many actual lawyers with billable hour. Quotas refused to do this exercise. They get so accustomed to thinking of their workdays and billable chunks. That the idea of doing it for all their time even for just a week seems awful. Some do it but very grudgingly. I find this fascinating because on some level many jobs have an expectation of a certain number of working hours yet putting a billable hour quota on it somehow makes life feel like a race against the clock in any case. Having an expectation of billable hours can make life stressful during times when it is hard to bill hours. I was reminded of this when i got a note. Recently from someone who's law firm like so many companies had gone virtual during the pandemic many of the firms lawyers were supervising virtual learning or had kids who are around a lot more than in the past and the net result was a reasonable amount of household distraction. Same as everywhere right but the firm could see it in their billable hour totals. People either didn't bill as much as they would have been possibly leaving clients short-staffed or they worked a lot of nights and weekends. Which can over time lead to burn out so what could be done. As with all people working at home and dealing with caregiving issues during the pandemic. The key is figuring out when you can focus and when it isn't possible to do. Long periods of focused work ensuring focus means designating someone else to cover the kid front usually that means switching off with a partner who may also be working from home though. Of course you can switch off with a neighbor or other relative who is in your bubble to hiring lawyers might also be able to hire childcare to get some focused hours in any case map out coverage schedule and then this is key map. The work to the time weeks end days needs to be planned very strategically figure out what work requires focus figure out what work requires less focus. Then as soon as focused hours are available start the billable work. This seems straightforward enough. But in my work with many lawyers over the years and other folks to i'd see that somewhat clear the decks before starting the billable stuff hoping to get all their emails answered and administrative stuff done then they dive in but that stuff can consume more time than you might imagine and that stuff can also be done while you are in charge of the kids and maybe they're playing independently for a few minutes or doing a school assignment so plan. The focused time to bill as much as possible on my website. A few months ago. I mapped out a schedule. Where each of two parties could get thirty hours per week of generally focused work by trading off the morning shift. That is eight to one and the afternoon shift. That is one to six with a double booking of nap early afternoon. Screen time hours. That's one to three. Pm for those. Who are curious if you could bill most of that thirty hours. We are talking twenty seven twenty eight hours right there. All during the hours of eight to six an all pretty focused time then and this is also key make a list of small billable tasks professionals who bill time often bill their time in tenths of an hour. That's six minutes. It might be possible to get a handful of six minute tasks done during the hours. You are covering or later in the day at night early morning as long as you know what these tasks are see. You don't waste available time deciding and maybe you can't do a ton of these tasks but five to ten per day. Sure that's thirty to sixty minutes of extra billable time or another two and a half to five hours per week. Doing that gets us to about thirty two hours or so of billable time. Now i'd say this is not bad given the remote learning situation going on if you are a professional services firm hoping to keep people through the situation accepting thirty two billable hours per week is probably a wise idea. If people can't bill forty and many people can't it's much better to bill thirty two then to just give up or to quit because sadly that is what a lot of people facing down caregiving responsibilities are doing which is a loss for everyone. Times are definitely rough now. But i'd say that this is not bad mindset to keep in the future when schools and daycares are open and time seems a bit more expensive. Don't answer the administrative emails. I dive right into the billable stuff. When time is available and then you will maximize the billable stuff figure out small tasks those six to twelve minute type tasks that are still billable and make a list of them so you can tackle those when your energy is a bit more off by doing this. You'll make sure you're getting credit for all your work and doing client work. That counts when you're best able to handle it. In the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening.

Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheart radio. Good morning. this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is that nobody wins a misery contest. If you are going to suffer in life make sure it's for a good reason if it's not for a good reason see if you can find a way to make it better. My guess is that you have more resources available than you think. My children have not had a great relationship with sleep over the years. My fifth child's crib is currently in the master bedroom closet. Because well with five kids. They don't all get their own rooms. The crib is on a bit of carpet in the corner. But there's no furniture because well it's a closet and so when the baby would be up in the middle of the night over the past year. I'd go feed him or hold him. Sit on the floor now. Being a forty something mother i am not as sprightly as i was as a twenty something mother and sitting on the floor in the dark in the cold in the middle of the night has been unpleasant and i was feeling pretty bad for myself. It was only after months of this. That i had thought i could get a chair. Yes a chair. I could put a chair in the closet. So i could sit on the chair to feed the baby or hold him now. I am a fairly frugal person. So i didn't actually go out and buy a rocking chair but i did move an extra chair. We had up to the closet. I still don't like waking up in the middle of the night but at least it's less physically painful. We can all ponder what was going on in my head that i didn't think about an obvious way to ease my misery. I blame sleep deprivation but if you think about it you may have blind spots to so it goes. Sometimes we have to think about things for a while but the more pernicious problem as i have learned over years of studying how people spend their time is not the misery itself. It is that sometimes we become attached to our narratives of misery. They become part of our identity. You know how this goes. I'm so hard working that. Of course i don't have time for hobbies or i don't have hobbies. That's what happens when you have kids. And i'm such a dedicated parent or i can't start a business. I have a mortgage. I'm a serious person. Or i shouldn't expect to like my job. That's why they call it work or i have to spend all my time cooking and cleaning so of course. I don't have any time for fun. That's just what's expected of me sometimes. People's conversations turned into a competition over whose life is more miserable. Whose spouse did something more thoughtless whose kids are more ungrateful. Who's boss is more domineering. But here's the thing. No one wins in the misery olympics. The real prize is not taking part if something is making you miserable instead of wallowing in the misery or clinging to the misery as part of your identity. Figure out what you can do to make it less terrible often. Small steps can make a difference if you hate your boss. You don't have to quit your job. Maybe you could volunteer for a project that has you working in a different department and with a different supervisor. Two days per week if your spouse is not pulling his or her share of the loot on something well ask for help. With something specific the person might refuse in which case you can then act on that realization but there is a pretty good chance that the person you married isn't actively trying to make your life miserable. It is hard to see things outside our immediate daily routines. So don't suffer. Ask for what you want now. There are sometimes reasons. We voluntarily take on suffering. I know that many people listening to this podcast have lived through the misery of early pregnancy. Many times it's worth it for the wonderful new people we bring into this world. We can all be grateful for people who do dangerous but necessary jobs who put themselves in harm's way for others. I am thankful that emergency responders will go out in the cold in the middle of the night in order to help people. But if i'm up in the cold in the middle of the night well there's no benefit in me sitting on the ground versus be having a chair. There is no point in suffering. When there's no good reason for that suffering. In the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody i'd love to hear from you.

"To create new adventures or to meet new people. Books are one of the best bets for discovering new ideas and spending time wisely. Now i know this episode might seem a wee bit self serving. I have written several books and so of course. I'd like to expand the book buying market. But i'm writing. This episode is much for me as for anyone longtime listeners. know that i am chronically. Cheap we could use a nice word like frugal. But i'm trying to be honest here. It has taken me a long time to convince myself that buying books is a good investment for starters on a dollar per hour basis. Looks are an incredibly cheap form of entertainment. If you pay twenty dollars for a book that takes you four hours to read. Well that is five dollars an hour. Of course it's not as cheap as say free social media sites. But i think a lot of us feel like our lives would be better if we spent less time on social media. Reading can fill all those bits of time that we tend to use for online. Perusing if you put an e. Reading app on your phone and by e books which is what i tend to do. You can even use the same device. It is just as easy to click on the kindle app as the twitter app. but i'm guessing one of these will feel like a slightly more edifying experience to spend time reading books. You need to have books ready to read. And here i find that committing to buying a few more books than you. Otherwise would is wise. You want to always have a book that you're looking forward to reading next that way you will spend more time reading. If you're cheap like me. It might help to give yourself a book buying allowance. Then make it a little bit more than you think you will actually spend. You could even decide that. It doesn't roll over month to so you feel some urgency to put it to use. That will give you a nudge to go peruse a used bookstore over your lunch break or to read reviews in the wall street journal or on good reads in order. Anything that you think looks interesting. It might also help to think of books as a substitute for other activities. That are harder to pull off these days. Maybe you can't travel to italy but you could read under the tuscan sun. You can't attend in in-person technology conference but you could read a book about the trade offs involved in various technological trends such as cal. newport's digital minimalism. You can't go here that inspiring speaker in person. But you can read his memoir. Put that way buying an extra book or two a month. Seems like a great bargain. So why not give it a try.

"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast
"Today's tip is to realize that noticing. A need doesn't mean you have to meet it. It's not always your job in his book. Tyranny of the urgent author charles hummel rights the need itself however urgent is not the call for us to meet it just because you notice a need or just because you acknowledge a need that someone brings to. Your attention. Doesn't mean that you have to solve this problem. This is true in all spheres of life at work. Maybe a colleague is having computer issues or some extra service. Your company could theoretically offer at home. Maybe you see a burned out. Lightbulb in your spouse's office or that your son's baseball glove is in his dresser and he'll need it for practice after school. The neighborhood playground could use some spiffing up or no one has planned. Anything for your mother in law's birthday. The truth is there are infinite needs and things that would make the world better but there's only so much that one person can do and when everything is your job sadly nothing will really get done because you'll be pulled in too many directions to get anything done so what you do instead. I shift your mindset if you reflexively feel obligated to solve every problem you notice. Pause ask yourself. Is this my responsibility. If it is handle it not consider what would happen. If you didn't get involved one possibility. Someone else will step up the people around. You are full of talents. Compassion and ideas leave some room for them to use them sometimes by stepping back. For a moment you'll create space for their brilliance. At times you may decide to describe the needy and invite others to make a plan to respond. If you're collaborating on a project at work that's going to require some late nights. Don't assume that you'll be the one to put them in instead. Try saying to your team. It looks like it's gonna take some time beyond normal working hours to get this finished. How can we work together to find extra time to get everything done. And rather than assuming. You're the only one who could plan your mother in law's birthday. Why not send a text to the siblings and partners group saying meetings birthday is next week. Anybody have ideas for celebrating or better yet. Perhaps you ask your spouse about the plans and then watch as the plans emerge believe it or not. There may even be times when you notice the need and let it go completely. Unmet sure the porch might be more inviting if it was swept but if your daughter tends to hang out there with her friends maybe give time to the messed herself. And if she doesn't the world will keep spinning. Don't take it for granted that you need to swoop in and meet. Every unmet need be intentional about how you allocate your time when we pick our battles. We might actually win them rather than spreading the army too thin in the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody i'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips your questions or anything else. Just connect with me on twitter.

Are Beans a Protein or Carbohydrate?
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition. Diva podcast. i'm your host monterey nagel and in this episode. i'm going to answer. The eternal question are being of protein or carbohydrate food. Vegetarians and vegans lean pretty hard on beans as a source of protein. And even those of us who sometimes eat meat but also enjoy plant based meals will often build our meat free meals around some sort of legume and that's because they contain more protein per serving than most other plant foods but the nutritional profile of legumes is very different from animal protein sources eggs meat fish and chicken get anywhere from fifty to ninety five percent of their calories from protein with the rest usually coming from fat leg. Hume's on the other hand only get about a quarter of their calories from protein and the rest is mostly carbohydrate. Soybeans are a bit of an exception being higher in both protein and fat and lowering carbohydrate than other legumes. Peanuts which are technically legumes are another exception. They're even higher in fat than soybeans and lower in protein than most beans. Perhaps because of this peanuts are generally categorized as nuts for the purposes of dietary guidelines despite their botanical classification. So can you get enough protein from beans well. Although we think of beans as being a protein food the truth is that they provide a lot less protein per serving and per calorie than animal proteins. A three ounce serving of cooked chicken breast for example provides about twenty six grams of protein and about one hundred and sixty calories. The standard serving size for beans is a half of cup of cooked beans and that provides just eight grams of protein for around one hundred twenty calories so we would need to eat a lot more beans to get the same amount of protein as we get from meet. It would take two cups of black beans. That's about four hundred and eighty calories to get the same amount of protein as you'd get from three quarters of a cup of chicken breast for example so for every gram of protein and beans. You're also taking in about three grams of carbohydrate and a lot more calories now although beans are relatively high in carbs these are some of the healthiest types of carbs. The carbohydrate portion of beans is a combination of fiber and starch but about half of the starch in beans is actually what we refer to as resistant starch that means it resists digestion and absorption in the small intestine and goes on to function much like fiber in the gut the fiber and the resistant starch in beans feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut. They promote regularity they helped to modulate our blood sugar response to food. They also increase our satiafaction and society after meals helping us feel full with fewer calories. Perhaps that's why people who eat. More beans generally have healthier body weights and lower waist. Circumference beans also contain fido sterols. These are plant compounds that are shaped so similarly to cholesterol that they can occupy the cholesterol receptors in ourselves and regular being consumption is linked with better cholesterol profiles. So beans have a lot going for them. But let's talk about how they fit into your diet because when we build a meal around beans instead of meat which is a great idea. We may need to make some other adjustments to our plates because beans contain both protein and starch. It might make sense to reduce other sources of starch to compensate for that. So if you're having black-eyed peas instead of blackened catfish for dinner. Perhaps you skip the bread or the potatoes. Beans and rice of course are a classic combination in part because of the complementary amino acid profile. But you could have a smaller portion of rice with your beans instead of half a cup of beans and a cup of rice. For example you could switch the proportions on that double up on the beans ordered to bump up the protein and reduce the rice to half a cup and keep in. Mind that if you're trying to match the protein content that you'd get from meet. You may not have as many calories to spend on other foods due to the extra calories that are riding along with that plant to protein.

A Recipe From Deborah Madison
"This is Deborah Madison the author of an onion in my pocket, and the recipe I want to talk about is an Eggplant Gra ten with a golden. Dome Saffron recalled the custard. This has long been one of my favorite dishes. But when we made it at Greens, I used to add greer cheese to it to make it more substantial main course those who are concerns that that time people felt satisfied I've now taken the greer cheese out since it wasn't there in the original recipe, which is actually by Richard Only, and here's how it goes. So you're GONNA start with about two pounds or a bit more of a plant. All of oil, a small red onion finely diced upon clove of garlic minced a half a teaspoon of herbs vence or a tablespoon margin lease chopped. Two. And a half pounds of full tomatoes that are ripe that are peeled, seeded and chopped or two cups of crush canned tomatoes. Sea salt freshly ground pepper to eggs a cup of ricotta a quarter cup of milk a good pinch of saffron threads that have been crumbled and soaked in a tablespoon of very hot water and a half a cup of freshly grated. Parmigiano reggiano cheese, and finally ten large Basil Leaves tournant pieces. Okay. We're going to heat the oven to four hundred degrees Fahrenheit with and then cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. If you've got just one large eggplant, cut it in quarters, slice each quarter crosswise about a half an inch thick. Slices lightly with oil on both sides and then set them on a sheet pan and bake until the bottom sides have brown. About fifteen minutes. Turn them over and Brown. The second side, this often takes less time. So do check after about eight minutes. When the EGGPLANT is done, remove it from the oven and reduced the heat to three hundred fifty degrees. To, make the tomato sauce warm two tablespoons olive oil in a wide skillet when it's hot at the onion garlic and herb surpr- vence crush I between the fingers or the fresh. Marjoram Stir to the onion with the oil. Then reduce the heat too low and cook gently until the Union is soft twelve to fifteen minutes. Add. The chopped fresh or canned tomatoes raise the heat and cooks during occasionally until the liquid has cooked off and the sauces fairly thick. To make the custard, wisc the aches and stirring the Kota Melk sufferin and Parmigiano reggiano cheese season with a few pinches of salt and some short ground pepper. To assemble the Gratin, choose an earthenware casserole with two inch sides in eight cup capacity. Spread a cup of the sauce and the dish then set down the overlapping layers of a plant. Season it was salt and pepper scatter. Half the torn basil leaves over the surface. Then Dab about a quarter cup of sauce over those plants then make another layer of the remaining eggplant seasoned with salt and pepper add the torn basil and cover with the rest of the tomato sauce for the custard overall and bake until it is golden gently swelled and even Brown in places about forty minutes, we moved from the oven and let the croutons rest for about ten minutes before serving.
Is Sugar Bad For You?
"Without further ado, I'm going to bring in our guest today. She is our registered Dietitian joining us on the show again is Debbie James how're you doing debbie I am grand. Thank you very much. All right. Good. Thanks for joining us on the phone here. So I guess right off the bat will jump into it. The big one that people ask is sugar bad for you. Is it bad? Loaded question. I like to give you the loaded one's. GonNa break it down. I'm going to say sugar naturally present in foods is usually fine but the over consumption of added sugar that linked to cardiovascular disease and obesity and cholesterol of not to mention inflammation oxidative stress. So those types of conditions are what added sugar is related to as far as the research goes Particularly, you know pretty vascular disease and it's really oftentimes the higher percentage of calories from added sugar. It's not just that you had them at how much that you had or that the sweet and beverages like seven servings or more per week. That are linked with the mortality from cardiovascular disease. So it matters when we're talking about what kind of sugar and how much right. So you could say excess sugar is bad for you. Can you say that we're yeah, you can say that but natural sugar. So I don't think that there are too many people that have just had an overabundance of raw fruit. that. Were hard pressed because you're getting the antioxidants and you're getting fiber and you're you get all those other things that are beneficial right? Right. The kind of bounce it out and it's probably hard to eat so much food that you would like just way go in excess of your sugar needs. It is so low in calories. Oh my gosh. I went to get like a smoothie. One of the you know maybe places in it a sixteen ounce smoothie had three hundred, sixty calories mike well, definitely not going to be sitting down eating eight apple. You know if I were to just turn to some raw fruit and sit down and chew, it's Never I. It's just not gonna add up that. Much right. Right. So are there are there are there different types of sugars though I there's like the wall stuff you get out of fruits and vegetables but is there you know like what's the additive the different ones? Are there different types early, those are those are like big picture group, their sugars I'm going to narrow it down and get a little. So chemically speaking sugar is either just one like ring of carbohydrate called a Amano ride or sugar also refers to some are two of linked together called a Diet Thac. Hope I hope our listeners at home or taking notes. Okay. We're be a quiz at the end for sure. It only makes little difference because let's say that that glucose blood sugar okay. Brick brick toast is fruit. Sugar. But sucrose table sugar the white crystalline stuff on your table it made of Glucose and fructose. The competent. Okay. That's one of the double sugars right So the reason that makes a difference. Is that the single sugars? They get a short they just they don't need to be broken down or anything. Whereas if you eat a longer sugar, we still call him simple sugar in the Diet but if you need a longer sugar or if you eat a complex carbohydrate like dark from rice or pasta corn potatoes. Your system needs to take time to break that down into its individual tiniest a small little piece to get gored and guess what? That's a sugar interesting. Okay. So because you got because it all right interesting. It's almost like how you just broke down sugar. It took a little longer. But it wasn't as simple to digest as but it was but it did make sense in the end. Okay. That's interesting. So like the if it's the combination, it almost like your body has to pull that apart and then digested. So it's like all right we gotta we gotta take this bar before we can use it. If. It's already we're calling it a sugar whether it's from honey or maple syrup or whatever it like a fraction leg. It is so so so fat birth is you had a bowl of cereal and you're gonNA break down that brand flake that takes a lot longer. Right, okay. It turns it turns to blood sugar even if there's no sugar in it. I don't know if that. Hydrate confused. That's true though you can look at your label of I have some Rice Pilau and it says zero grams of sugar. But I know that it will raise my blood sugar. Two cups of it. You know. Because your body breaks it down digestion. You've got them in time, and then like I said, you clean it down to its very smallest. Piece Particle and Adore Bet and that you're. Going Okay So are there with when it comes to sugars? Are there actually could you deem some sugars healthy for you? Or is it just? are between the different sugars are some more healthy for you than others Okay well, we mentioned natural sugar I think I should Kinda sorta define what what added sugar is. Okay. So if you think of added sugar as something as an ingredient that that's in food in the processing and preparation or added to the food at the table that's really meant as as a sweetener sweetener. Okay. The things that things on the label you might see they could be dextrose could be brown sugar it could be powdered sugar, corn syrup it could be invert sugar lactose, all these names. that. Are within the food those are added but let's say you're looking at fruited yogurt and you feed that there's milk and there's strawberries and boo, there are going to be some grams of sugar. Those are the natural one from the milk and the strawberry, but there may also be some of these other dextrose and. added. In addition to really didn't. Make it a more pleasurable eating experience or drinking experience off to make it. Yeah. To make you crave it. Provides structure and baked good. They, they actually have a a role to play and architecture if you will. I was just thinking been. Yes. I was GONNA use that word. That's funny. Yeah. That's interesting So going. So that's the definition but going back to your question are some like better for you than others are considered healthy. So if you think of natural sugars, they're better for you consumed in their original food source but just bruder milk because of the other nutrition you get with them like I mentioned, fiber calcium, protein, vitamin, C, or D. And you could even say, okay well, what about more purified natural sources like honey or maple syrup are Garvey there's still condiments but. let's say honey it's known to have antimicrobial antioxidant properties and it's a natural cough remedy though if I was going to put them sweetener mit then. I might preference choose honey. Okay. So that's okay that kind of I think touches on like whether. Natural, Rossouw, better for you. But how how much sugar are we talking about that? You should have on a daily basis? What how much should be in your daily Diet? In. General. Okay their recommendation, Perm, lots of different. You know organizations so and and it's because we have found that American adults and children. We consume more than fifty percent of our calories from added sugars and mostly it's from sweetened beverages followed by credited desserts and baked good categories so. I thought. That percents champion many. Oh I it's taking the place of nutrition food right. Did you. Did you say fifteen percent or fifty percent. Keen fifteen. Okay. The first time I heard fifty and I was just like what? Okay fifteen still high feel high. Yeah Okay I'm glad we clarify that. Okay. Continue to help the another would be extraordinary. So the Institute of Medicine, they recommend that added sugar take up less than twenty five percent or a quarter of your total calorie rich like you know it's up there the American Heart Association recommends limiting your added sugar. They offer it a different way. They do it less than a hundred calories per day for women. So that's about sixty spoon or a hundred and fifty calories a day for men, which is about ninety burns. Yet the World Health Organization they recently issued new guidelines stating that only five percent of a person to total daily calories should come from sugar

Coronavirus Self-care Strategy
"Thank you so much Dr Seakor for being with us. You know it's nice to have a nurse practitioner on what what has been your take with all of this cove it. Have you been handling it? Oh, man, I've had to ramp up myself care. It's just kinda crazy out there. I've had to limit my news. Consumption I've had to really ramp up my exercise and just sleep getting more sleep setting alarm for that. It's really challenging. Sleep right now for me is so tough owes up this morning at five am odd because I just I can't sleep and. Yeah and It's funny just today. I'm like a die hard. Andrew Cuomo Tone in love with him. I call him my president. I'm like I said to my husband Mike. You think he's just like. Can We? Just what is the rules to get him on the ballot? Right on the ballot right? Thanks so on real, but other than that I've had to turn off the news, too, because it just yeah. Even the evening talk, it's just overwhelming. I mean we can't lose our hope. Too much of this information you can really lose your hope. And where are you right now? CAPE COD Massachusetts okay. where? where? Where on the Cape right at the Canal so near Plymouth? Okay so on the Cape Cod. Canal is a little shack so to speak called Seafood Chantey. CATES, that's like it's a mazing takeout. It's my favorite. It is incredible. Johnny Academies who went to College, but my dad I would die. Hard grew up McCabe my hotel. In the town of Barnes Omayyad. Liam's is no longer Nassir. Beach no worry. Our close allies just went down there last weekend, and they had to just take the shack down. Because of erosion is just so sad. Oh, that's too bad. Obse string onion rings. Who is? Now I missing McCabe. I love I. It's hard to have a tough day here when you're at the Cape. I love that. We're talking about shoestring onions because we're GONNA. Get right into it. Dr, Seymour I brought you on, because so many of us we are now in the throes of summer. We weren't able to get to the gyms even for places that are opening up, it's not the same. What can we do to drop the quarantine? Fifteen or you know? I came up with this Jingle and it represents the word pandemic, and each letter in in pandemic can be one of your self care steps when I even made a little. A little law. List. WHO IS GONNA sing the Jingle for I. Wish I could in my dreams I sing. Okay Calera user all the pillars of self care and I can take through those yes I would love that. All right so basically what everyone needs to think about is. We are really not trained to ramp up ourselves. CARE will release stressed in fact. The culture basically reinforces that we lose the wheels off our wagon right and we go directly to Ben and Jerry's and chocolate chip cookies. Whatever it is, so you have to really develop a plan and that's like my first step in pandemic. Plan and you have to have a program and you have to figure out how am I gonNA deal with this quarantine. Right. We have to ramp up your self care. Figure out. What am I gonNa do for the week. What am I gonNa do tomorrow and maybe tomorrow I just planned to drink. More water I haven't a match today I. Don't usually match my water, but it can be very powerful. Yeah, our love, and how many of you out? There are starting your day with the large glass of water. Good job. Ryan Job Amber Y- I start my day with a large cup of coffee, not gonNA lie boming well I. I love coffee, too, but I usually start with a large last water in the coffee. Going to help you in a especially if you have any. Can to actually have you sleep disrupted fifteen hours after your last caffeine. So, that's something most people don't know. How I am, that might be well. I do drink two cups of coffee, generally like seven like right when I get up I be lying to the coffee machine and so now I'm drinking them by because I don't drink coffee in the afternoon river because I know that I know that it's like I will be up till know. Chris come home. So that's planning, basically planning is essential. If you fail to prepare, YOU'RE GONNA prepare to fail and a lot of people when they're home. They just feel like they're out of their routine right so that planning also essentially creating a routine for yourself, and for so many people at home right now very chaos, even though it's been a few months now it's still chaos, not going back to the way it was and prior to this whole situation or eating out fifty percent of the time. Now they're not. What are they eating at home? How do you approach that whole situation at home with all those triggers in the cabinets and trigger people? Maybe that you're living like my husband pulls out the Ben and Jerry's at night and sits right next. Meet chomping on it like. Eating my egg whites an hour before I go to sleep. In it. Right now he's trained. I'm very trained and the good thing about training. Good thing about healthy habits is they run themselves most of the time. However, it is more challenging when you have a lot more stress in your life. They don't run themselves as automatically as when stresses lower so I've had to really be attentive to making sure my habits are
"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast
"Delete or start a new email chain second. Don't use sarcasm without alerting people sarcasm and humor in. General can be fun ways to bond person. They're also almost impossible to convey in the written word. One study found that whether people were emailing friends or strangers the people receiving the emails or wildly inaccurate in determining what sarcastic. And what was serious. This can go wrong and all sorts of ways. The person receiving your message might think you're being deliberately mean rather than making a joke so don't be subtle either. Put in the word sarcasm or put a smiley face next to anything that should be interpreted lightly if emojis don't feel right then don't make your joke in the first place. Save it for the in person meeting when your comedy act as far more likely to shine third and a related point be more positive than you think is necessary email. In general reads negatively. It's unclear why this is possibly when we talk in person. We send reassuring nonverbal cues that the relationship matters and we're not trying to be aggressive but these cues are completely absent in the written form that means that if you right the way you normally talk what you write be interpreted more harshly than if you're in person so over the years I've learned to write the email naturally send then go back and make it look like it came from a happier bubbly version of Laura even a short greetings such as hope. You had a great weekend tour. I was so glad to hear from you can go a long way toward making the e. Mail. See more positive if you don't intend to flame someone. Finally there's the question of when you're sending the email. The original genius of email was that it was a synchronous communication. I read an email at a time that works for me. You read and respond at a time that works for you. Alas we've now devolved into a situation where email is treated with the urgency of a phone call but people email with prolificacy. They'd never manage on a telephone in any case. This has some important ramifications. If you're in management you should understand that anyone who reports to you will feel like she should respond to your e mails as soon as possible. That's human nature. But maybe your email wasn't urgent. Maybe you're emailing at ten pm because you like to catch up on work after your kids go to bed you might wanna save the email as a draft and send it out at eight.

"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast
"Maybe it's saying or writing in a journal. It can be very powerful to make these decisions automatic but building habits is hard. That's why I'm always on the lookout for ways to make habit building easier so I love this suggestion that I received from before breakfast listener. Peggy she wrote in I. I have a habit that helps me with getting little things done. That can be overlooked. I try to combine two or more tasks so that I don't forget one of them. She gave me a few examples of pairings that worked well in her life. When I make my bed in the morning she says I pray if I see. My bed isn't made I know I forgot to pray. Also Peggy notes that. She injured a muscle in her leg at one point and knows she needs to stretch it. I was forgetting to stretch it. After running as I'm usually short on time in the morning she says I found when I am in the shower and conditioning. My hair after a run. I just stretch that particular muscle for a few minutes while I let my conditioner set. I had problems for years with this muscle but once I started this routine. It hasn't been a problem. Praying and stretching are frequent tasks but other little things. Don't need to be done nearly as often there are few tasks I have to do. Once a month peggy rights. I finally realized I needed to combine them all on the same day. The first of each month I put in a new pair of contacts budget and write out checks to my kids music and dance teachers wash my vacuum filters and do the cleaning cycle on my washing machine. I have written down my monthly items on my phone and I do them all at once. I think these are great ideas. All sorts of little habits can be paired with others for instance. I've suggested in previous episodes that people keep time. Logs it's empowering to know where the time goes but it's also easy to forget to write down where the time went until so much time has passed that you no longer remember so. I suggest that at least during the Work Day. People pair time tracking with bathroom breaks when you come back from a bathroom break right down what you did since the last one or here's another opportunity for pairing. I don't know about you but my car has a tendency to accumulate a lot of trash now and I'm putting gas in my car. I set the handle to keep pumping and then I clean out the car. This feels like a real win. Because I wasn't using that time for anything important anyway and now ever much cleaner vehicle. I don't watch TV much. And I almost never watch it live. But if you're watching something with commercials this can be a great time to do something like stretching or strength training or you can use the time. We'll food heats up in the microwave in our house. We Stack Mail on the counter under our microwave and it has a tendency to pile up if I sort the mail anytime using microwave. I can avoid losing important notes in the mess now to be clear. I don't think we need to pack every minute of every day. People can go a little overboard with Paren- I've personally been mocked in more than one article for the idea of using microwave. Sign for anything but I also do that. Small things done repeatedly add up. Habits are powerful but relying on our conscious minds to remember to do all the things we know we should do is just asking for failure. Pairing new habits with things we already do greatly increases the chances that we stick with them. Just ask Peggy his leg. Injury is no longer bothering her and keeping a spiritual commitment. She decided to make to. What habits do you pair together? I'd love to hear about them. Please email me your pairs at the breakfast. Podcast AT IHEARTMEDIA DOT COM in the meantime. This is Laura.

Savor It. Or Don't. by Kate Galliett of The Unbreakable Body
"Saver it or don't buy cake. Elliott of the unbreakable body DOT com Ease slowly may only get your first been. Yea once the lead character in the movie chef said to his son as he dove into a plate of venue as well walking along the streets of New Orleans. That line hit me in the face hard. I'm not even sure what happened for the next few minutes of the movie as that line tumbled over and over again in my head my mind exploring it evaluating it examining it from every angle. I'll seeing things from a whole new vantage point. I experienced as you get a lot of first experiences in life but you only get all of them. Once they're not all majestic in fact most are in your day to day life. If you've noticed that the first time when out on a walk you notice. The trees have changed for the season. The first time you have a real meaningful conversation with a new friend who is becoming a best friend. The first time you meditate. Don't quit after four minutes. And then some are majestic as the first time you stand in front of the mountain range. You've dreamed of forever the first time you realize you're turning dreams into reality. The first time you fall in love with a person with yourself with life those moments life is not life without them. You've day to day existence. And then you have first experiences as AL watts puts it. When discussing polarity quote the are different but inseparable size of the same coin there the pulse and the interval in any vibration and quote first experiences are as much moments themselves as they are the times in between each moment. Same as a wave is as much a crest as it is the trough we notice. I experience is happening. Are you savoring them? I've been known to rush into things. I chewed dark chocolate. Instead of waiting for the flavor. Nose to expand more fezzet melted on my tongue. A go full tilt into moments a between First Cup of coffee of the day and already picturing a second cup. Nothing gravely bad came of those moments the rushing in worked the chocolate tasted of chocolate to his always a second cup of coffee so might change. We are ever-evolving creatures. I am you are arraigned before. About how finding on your daily life a responsibility bestowed on all humans by the way is sometimes as easy as expanding your field of view Might have been sitting just left of where you were looking until you expand your field of vision here going to keep missing it. Things can be good and yet. That's not a shackle that needs to keep you from exploring further. We realize something just off to the left of your field of view and you know that exploring it will be good for your growth. Even if you don't hang onto it as a key. Part of your operating system for life is worth expanding your view and exploring further the value of rushing right in the rush right in route works. But it's by design a one note thing to rush in means to operate off in early impulse rushing in by. Its very nature. Means that you that first signal that this is good and you dive right in on the hunch that what follows will also be as good. Think if that been. Yeh Boy was eating the first bite. I'm sure was a fluffy powdered sugary warm signal to his brain that this is good and naturally he dove into get more as quickly as possible. It's understandable our brain says my God that is good. Give me more and do it quickly. There's a time and place for doing just that sometimes just rush right in. Do It do it other times when you want to explore the edges of your field of vision on what your understanding of first experience is slow your roll a bit and check into the moment instead of checking through the value of savoring. You cannot stop time the time this first experience is happening in. It's already moving past you. You have no hope slowing down unless you actively engage in savoring. What's happening in this first experience to save her a moment a meal a book a person is to become intensely aware of your presence with that person thing food or place to save. Her is to acknowledge the goal your in the process of achieving the site. You are in the process of seeing the feeling you are in the process of feeling. It's you mu seeing this doing this feeling this being this. You'll bank the memory in your mind or on your instagram. You'll talk for years to come of the taste. The efforts the views of this. I experience we catalog. The feelings the depth the richness of this. I experience as well if he savor it. Not only are you far more likely to create a textual memory. You're capable of stepping outside yourself for just a moment creating space to witness yourself. Witnessing the moment so is open

"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast
"Only on who the series follows the intertwined fates of the picture perfect Richardson family? An enigmatic mother daughter duo who move into town and append their lives with devastating consequences. Now streaming check out new episodes every Wednesday only on Hulu. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Today's tip is about how to make more time to read when I asked people what they want to spend more time doing. Exercise always comes up. I don't worry we're GONNA talk a lot about that in future episodes but reading is a close second indeed. If you'd asked me a few years ago would I wanted to spend more time doing. I would have said reading books. I would've told you I was busy. And I had very limited time to read then I tracked my time for a year a year incidentally when I had four children under the age of eight including an infant which I thought was a pretty good excuse. My time logs were clear. My problem was not a lack of time to read. I had spent three hundred twenty seven hours reading that first year which is almost an hour a day. But I couldn't remember many good books I had read. The truth is I had spent the vast majority of those three hundred twenty seven hours reading online news stories and gossip magazines. Why well that's what was easy and available when I had opened time so that is what I read. It makes sense but it's also kind of sad as three hundred twenty. Seven hours is enough. Time to read more than fifteen thousand pages of real stuff. I could have read Warren piece ten times. Let's just say that did not happen so I resolved to do better and over the next two years. I didn't spend much more time reading but the quality of my reading material massively improved. I actually did read Warren piece I read Moby Dick. I read Middle March Infinite Jest Kristen. Lavender one q eighty four ulysses a number of other amazing books on my reading bucket list. I did not magically find more time Laura who had no time to read and Laura who read Warren peace were the exact same person living in the exact same universe. It was just about being more strategic with a time. I had so if you'd like to be a better reader. You might try to do what I did. I make sure you have really good books to read readily available. Now you might think this sounds backwards. I can just hear people yelling at this podcast Laura. They're all these wonderful books that I knew time to read. This is not my problem. Let me ask you this. If you were to turn off this podcast. Could you be engaged with the book you really wanted to read? And the next thirty seconds because I know you could be on instagram and the next thirty seconds. If you don't have that same ability to dive into a book then this is GonNa limit your ability to seize time to read so make a list of the books. You'd really like to read not what you think you should read. You're not in high school English class anymore. You don't have to read what you don't WanNa read even if that cuts out some good books. I'll put this out here. I don't like false accusations stories and I don't like the sort of awkwardness. That's endemic to romantic comedies. Also I feel like there's enough violence and cruelty in the real world that I just can't stomach too much of it my fiction even though I know this. Put some really good books off my list. Id Me You. Do you figure out what you'd like to read building twenty minutes a week or so to find book recommendations? I like to check out the modern Mrs Darcy. Blog and her podcast. What should I read next? I look at the Wall Street. Journal's Review Section and magazine for ideas. I welcome your suggestions to then. Get your hands on the first handful. Physical books are great. But here's the real breakthrough for me. I put the kindle APP on my phone this is Amazon's EC reader APP. And guess what? I always have my phone with me. Since you're listening to a podcast. I'm guessing this is the case for you to putting the kindle APP on my phone meant that I could immediately by any book I saw recommended and I could turn my headline and social media scrolling time into reading time. People turn out to have a lot of time. You probably pick up your phone at least fifty times a day if you want to check the exact number. Just look at the screen time function. If you have an iphone so you pick up your phone you junky mail and then what you probably look at social media or headlines. But if you spend six of those five minutes spurts reading. That's half an hour a day of reading right there and then the funniest thing happens when you're really into a book you start magically finding more time to read. Instead of spending ten minutes puttering around with the male pile looking at catalogs you read instead of Channel Surfing. You read your the exact same person but time starts to open up. Of course there are ways to build more reading time. It's your life. Structurally too if you've got a long commute definitely put audio books into the mix. Maybe you listen to this podcast for a bit and then listen to a chapter in a book. You know if you've got a forty five minute commute. You're going to spend seven and a half hours in the car this week. You're going to spend forty five hours in the car of the next six weeks anyway so you might as well listen to Doris. Kearns Goodwin's team of rivals which clocks in at just under forty two hours reading also a great way to wind down at night. I try to get ready for bed at least twenty to thirty minutes before lights out time a few days per week then I can use that time to read finally one of the most motivating things I did was to start keeping track of what books I'd read. There are fancy books journals out there. But you don't really need anything like that just a notebook or a file on your computer or your phone is going to do just fine. You can also start sharing your list of books. Read with friends. Not only will people see what you like and start recommending titles. It's a great way to hold yourself accountable because while I really did enjoy reading Warren piece. I also get a kick out of telling people. I read Warren piece. I'm guessing this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips your questions or anything else.

If you only have regular tin foil you have to grease the foil with CRISCO or cooking spray putting a large bull three or four cup of raisins three Fourth Cup of sliced almonds three Fourth Cup of shredded coconut and two cups of crush. Cornflakes it's mixed everything together. And then measure three Fourths Cup of Sweden condensed milk and mix that in as well placed not quite one fourth cup of the mixture onto onto the foil. Line oven tray. These cookies don't really spread or change shape when they're baking so they don't have to be really far apart cut the candied cherries in half and one half cherry on each cookie. We sure each cookie. Stay squished together. You may have to pat the edges with your fingers to keep them together. Bake the cookies for fourteen to fifteen minutes or until they reach a light golden color. Let the cookies cool for about five minutes before removing them from the trae they're delicious as as is but let's add some chocolate but the dark chocolate chips into a small bowl. UNMELTED in the microwave with a butter knife spread a thin layer of chocolate on the bottom of each cookie cookie. Let the dark chocolate completely hardened before flipping them over to melt.
