"A haven some spot of your home. Were you feel calm. And you're not constantly feeling like you should be doing something else back before. Two thousand twenty ended conferences for the foreseeable future. I gave a lot of time. Management speeches and one of my biggest laugh. Lines came when i talked about saving time. By lowering your housekeeping standards. That people would tell me that they couldn't relax if their home was a mess. Okay i said clean one. Shut the door and sitting there. I said as a joke. But i think there's real merit to this idea. Lots of people find it hard to relax when they see undone work whether that's your laptop sitting there or a pile of dishes or something that is clearly in the wrong place. The instinct is to go deal with the problem so that then you can fully relaxed but you can see how this plays out. It takes a long time to clean a whole house or put everything away and then it might come out again raising the very real possibility that you will never relax. And that doesn't sound good so if you know this is a problem for you. You might choose one room. That is relatively easy to put an order and then consciously treat this as you're closed door haven keep it pretty minimalist. There's less stuff that way to put away. If you have kids. Maybe a master bedroom could be good for this. Don't make it a magnet for kid toys. Shove them out as soon as they wind up in their fold. Laundry elsewhere usually. It's possible to keep the clutter under control when you need respite. Shut the door and sitting there if that doesn't work if you happen to have a house that's big enough to have a formal living room. Sometimes these get less us and hence attract fewer active projects that then look undone so that room can become your haven an enclosed. Porch could serve this function as long as you store the outdoor gear and projects. Somewhere else inependence. Even a small apartment could offer some spot. Or you can't see the clutter or the work turn a chair to a window and make the space in front of it. Minimal and relatively clear. Maybe put some fresh flowers there. As long as that's not gonna make you feel like you need to change the water or trim the stems so maybe a house plant. That doesn't need much care or a fake plant. We can waste all kinds of time puttering around the house picking up things here and there without any purpose except a vague pursuit of order. I suggest people stop doing that. But i know that's harder for some folks than others and if that sounds like you creating a little haven can be a real strategy for putting some actual rest into your life and that is well worth doing in the meantime this is laura.

"This is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to gossip for good. That is say nice things about people that you suspect over here or that will be repeated back to them. This is one of the best ways to make people feel good about themselves. A few months ago. I hadn't experienced that you may have had to several of us were using a new video platform for a call and as i came in a bit late from trying to figure it out it was clear the others were talking and that they hadn't seen that i had joined in the span of ten seconds before they figured out i was there one of the other participants said nice about me not only was. I relieved that they weren't complaining about my tardiness. I got the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from hearing a compliment that i wasn't intended to hear it. Got me thinking about the importance of gossiping for good. It's easy to bond with people by about other people but even with people we like. We can sometimes say things that border on complaint. I don't know why we so often resort to negatively as we try to establish common ground. But i do know that it's not necessarily a great idea long-term and for not going to stop talking about other people. Maybe we can try to make at least some of the talk positive. There's a good chance are words. We'll get back to the person we're talking about so best to say things that if they do get back to the person or if the person overhears them they'll feel good about this is especially true with kids. Kids can indeed be maddening and exhausting. But we're all around the house. Twenty four seven right now. A complaint said behind closed door on a cell phone will still be heard so we'll a compliment best to spread kindness through these tough times by going with the latter. When in doubt be specific. Talk about examples. Maybe your kids have found a way to keep training for their sports. Maybe they've been reaching out to friends to check on how they're doing. Maybe they've had trouble with distance learning but have proactively reached out to teachers for help to something that you're proud of and then the next time you're on the phone with a relative or a friend or having what you think is a behind closed doors conversation with your spouse. Make sure to bring these things up. You can do this with colleagues too when someone does something well or handles a tough situation with wisdom make a note of it or could into your next conversation with someone else. Maybe it won't make it back to the other person in which case no big deal. You've just said something nice but the odds are good that it will make it back to the person you're complementing and while you can and should complement people directly these back channel. Compliments always feel a little more special. They weren't meant to be heard so when they are heard. It's like opening an unexpected present. Knowing this you can make a point of repeating anything. Nice that you here to the subjects to tell your kids how impressed your relatives are with the notes. Say sent tell your colleagues. How impressed your friend in another department was with their performance in the last meeting when you gossip for good you become a force for good and who couldn't use that brake now. 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.

A production of iheartradio good morning. This is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to think of progress. When we're talking about relationships rather than basic tasks progress is motivational sadly the converse of that is also true when progress is less obvious. It can be hard to feel motivated. Fortunately there's some ways to recreate a sense of progress no matter what kind of work we're talking about. Today's tip comes out of a question. I got from a before breakfast listener. Who had recently left her job partly to spend more time caring for her daughter who is on the autism spectrum. The listener noted that her daughter was needing to interact with people more and this was definitely challenging. She wrote she needs more support to cope with. How exhausting elementary school is. The listener was also studying to pursue a new career as chaplain. All of these are worthy endeavors. But as she noted. I'm so used to measuring valuing my time by tasks finished. Parenting and researching are both activities. That are not task oriented. I find myself struggling to measure my progress and feeling unaccomplished. after lots of time well spent. Do you have any tips. For how to measure time and progress in these non task oriented settings. It's a good question. The nature of parenting or for that matter being chaplain is to spend a lot of time with people simply being available to them. The quantity of time is a key part of the job and while we can track time. And i recommend checking time. The outcome of being available is not always clear. One of the things that people who decide to be fulltime parents most struggle with is this transition from turning in a report at the end of the day to getting to the end of the day and wondering what actually got done. This can make it hard to stay motivated. But i think we can create concrete tasks within these sorts of time that allow us to feel a sense of progress and motivation. Yep it's quality time within the quantity time. I've been thinking about this a lot lately as all five of my children have been home with me for the past two months. I know that theoretically this extra time together can allow us to deepen our relationships but so much of the time is just managing. Chaos heaping the five year old from breaking things in between feeding the baby and keeping the other children from hurting each other so to keep my sanity. I've come up with distinct projects. Each of us can do together. I'm sure that simply spending time together is more important in the long run but keeping mom motivated is important too. So we've ordered a bunch of legos. I recently finished a whole rocket launching the ten year old plus a farm set with the five year old. My twelve year old has become my writing accountability partner. He's writing a novel and we check in with each other. On how many words we've done and our creative projects my eight year old daughter and i are undertaking a grownup dollhouse project. Not for playing in for building and enjoying the miniature scenes even the baby can have some projects. We've been reading through all the old issues of baby bug magazine that kept from previous children. I know that it doesn't particularly matter that i'm reading. A child focused magazine versus the dictionary with the baby. But it makes mom feel better that yes. I read through two issues today. And i will do to issues tomorrow and so forth if you likewise are looking for ways to stay motivated and relationship work you might try setting some particular tasks that you can do and then celebrate completion. A chaplain for instance might set goals for numbers and types of visits. Follow in particular passages to read or spiritual exercises to do when it feels appropriate. Sure the main point is being there and listening and offering comfort but we can create tasks for ourselves within that our listener who wants to support her daughter with social interaction might set goals for how to handle welcoming her home from school or sending her off to school or planning activities on the weekends that might gently introduce certain social interactions. She can note her progress and celebrate what she's done quantity and quality. Time are often presented as being in opposition but really relationships are made up of both. A lot of the real work is done in the quantity but the quality part keeps us motivated. And that's a good and it's 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.

"Tip is about some smart things to stash in your car so that all trips or weights are more comfortable unless you've lived in a few big cities if you've got a commute or kids or both. You probably spend a fair amount of time in your car. I used to think. I didn't a work from home and my kids. Schools are less than ten minutes away. But then i started tracking my time and realized. Wow all this short trips add up. That's one reason. I started the before breakfast. Podcast i wanted to give people something they could get through on a short trip anyway. After my recent episode on using a gift cards i got a note from a listener named april. She wrote that. I kept ending up at target or cvs or some other store on an errand and realizing i didn't have the gift card or running home for an in and out gift card before we made a rare impromptu gift card stopped for dinner so one day last summer i grabbed a credit card wallet. I had put all of the gift cards. I might use outside the house in it. Then put it in my glove compartment now. If april needs to stop by target she can just reach in there and grab the cart. This got me thinking of all the other things that it's wise to keep in the car. I don't think it's a coincidence that my family has gotten sick less frequently since we started keeping bottles of hand sanitizer in the cup holders of our cars. We also keep some paper towels for the inevitable messes and small garbage container in our family minivan. There's a bottle of water or to hydration emergencies. Usually some granola bars sunscreen for sunny days. An umbrella for rainy ones. I keep a handful of quarters. In case i'm somewhere with old fashioned parking meters. I thought these were pretty smart ideas. Then i asked my twitter followers about their car. Stashes and i realized. I'm pretty much rookie level when it comes to preparedness the most common out of the box idea. People mentioned a big towel is as useful for messes as paper towels. The can also be used for drying off anyone who has wet or putting under anyone who has wet for whatever reason that wetness has happened. A large towel also enables an impromptu picnic. Or if you need to be outside can be wrapped around someone who is cold. A few people mentioned garbage bags. These are useful for the inevitable. Garbage that builds up and that people forget to cart out of the car but can also make reasonable ponchos first downpour. That said actual punches aren't that expensive either. Might be worth keeping around a first aid kit or at least band. Aids is never a bad idea. People with teenagers mentioned the importance of extra phone chargers you're young passengers might need to restore their batteries. So they can text each other across the back seat of course not all. entertainment must be electronic. One person mentioned book of mad libs another suggested. A book of crossword puzzles both require pen. So be sure to have that to either of those or a sticker book for little kids can provide a lot of entertainment for a small amount of car volume. A few people mentioned frisbees and april. Who wrote in with the gift card hack mentioned that she kept a deflated beach ball in the car so she and her family could bat ball around if they found themselves waiting somewhere like a sibling sports event with time to kill. Now that i'm back in the newborn stage people reminded me of the importance of extra clothes. An extra sweatshirt should suffice and helps with unexpected cold and finally extra socks cold feet make people miserable. And that's the last thing you need on a car trip. As i read through this list i realized that it sounds like a lot of stuff but the good news is that none of it takes up that much space. A small crate in the trunk could corral at all. And then you'll be ready for whatever life on the road throws a you. So what do you keep your car. I'm sure i'm forgetting something. Brilliant so let me know what it is at before breakfast.

Good morning this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about why and how. You should build reflective time into your schedule. I find time as consciously chosen moments when you pause and think about your life. You think about what you've done with your time and what you'd like to do with your time and sure people wind up ruminating unintentionally those moments at two am when your thoughts are spinning about something regretted or dreaded. But i'm talking about something more intentional which generally involves planning journaling for those with the more spiritual bent. Meditating or praying in my research. I found that choosing to carve out these moments is associated with feeling like you have more time for my book off the clock. I had nine hundred busy. People track their time for a day. I asked questions about how they felt about their time. I found the people with the most abundant perspective on time. Were highly likely to engage in these reflective activities whereas the people who felt most star for time we're likely to never engage in these activities and by the way it's not that the former group had more leisure time the rushed inherited sorts actually watched more tv and spent more time online. But if you think about it time keeps passing whether we think about how we spend it or not. We're all on canoes in the middle of a rushing river. Unless you pull yourself over to a calm spot. It's really hard to figure out how to direct our crafts through the current reflective moments. Give us a chance to do that. And so it turns out that spending discretionary time reflecting on life makes time feel more calm than using the same quantity of time to say. Peru's twitter so that's the why now let's get to the how the first approach and what will work best for. Most people is structural reflection. Doesn't need to take a ton of time but we do need cues to remind us to do it or else will just flip from one thing to the next longtime listeners. Know that. I like to plan my weeks on friday afternoons. Think this is a great time in general to think about the week that's just passed and the seven days or so to come. What needs to happen. What i like to see happen until you get in the habit it might help to set an alarm for certain time say three. Pm on friday. If that doesn't work because you're still stuck in a meeting set a backup time but spending a mere ten to fifteen minutes on this weekly planning will absolutely change your life then. You can build in smaller structural moments for reflection. I like to think through the next day as i'm ending the day before you can do this before you leave work or at night before bed. Think about what went right and wrong in the previous day. And what would you like to see happen in the coming. Twenty four hours. When can those things happen. Some people might prefer to start their days in reflective mode. If that's used set your alarm for ten minutes before you have to be up and use this time to read something uplifting or to set your intentions for the day between a weekly reflective time and smaller daily reflective times. You can start to feel a lot more calm. And then if you'd like to take things up a level you can try to find other reflective opportunities. Some people pray or meditate in the shower. It's time our minds. Tend to wander anyway so why not direct that wandering you can count your blessings while stuck in traffic and any bit of found time like while you're waiting for a phone call to start could be good for writing in a journal. The good news. Is that as you build in these reflective moments. Your relationship with time. We'll start to change. You'll start making more positive choices. You'll feel more like you are directing time rather than it directing you and you'll probably feel less rushed inherited. These are pretty amazing. Outcomes for what amounts to less than five to ten minutes a day so why not give it a shot today. Think about when you can build in reflective moments into your schedule. Hold yourself accountable for today and then do it again tomorrow. I'm betting that the payoff will soon. Have you hooked 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.

"Old fashioned forms of fun. Many of these were deliberately about filling time or some might say killing time. Modern often feel. We don't have time for such things but over the past few weeks. Well we've learned otherwise. The circumstances aren't ideal but the good news is that on the other side. The world's lockdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We'll have expanded our repertoire. A fun if you've read much literature written before the advent of radio and television. You've probably noticed something authors such as charles dickens jane austen or herman melville stories in a slightly less economical fashion than modern authors. The plots take longer the sentences are more involved but honestly why not. They weren't competing with cable. People didn't have other things to do to fill the hours after dinner and before bed so links wasn't a downside in the way that modern publishers sometimes considered to be links was often an upside. Anyone listening to this. Podcast presumably still has access to the internet but with school and activities canceled. Many people have more hours to fill than in the past screens. Fill some of it but even the best shows get boring after a while. So it's time to recall how people used to kill time and realized that in many cases killing time isn't a bad thing at all. One of my favorite. Our filling activities is big puzzles. Well a two hundred piece puzzle might fit in a busy day long days. Call for big ones a thousand pieces. Fifteen hundred pieces. Why not gather the family around a big table and chat as each work on your sections. I'm also a fan of giant. Lego sets over the past few months my ten year old and i have been working on a replica of the empire state building. We flagstar lego building muscles on christmas. Gingerbread house set and now we're feeling more capable of bigger things sets that take more time because time is kind of the point. Baking can fill lots of time. My husband's been baking bread. I collect magazines from the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties and some of the recipes and old issues of good housekeeping. Literally require all day but if everyone's around the house all day this might be less of a downside than it seems at first glance. Of course you can really get into the little house on the prairie lifestyle and take up sewing or other needle crafts every time. I read the laura ingalls wilder books a picture. The family sitting in front of fire with pa. Reading playing the fiddle and moss ditching something so enclosed for a family of six certainly takes a lot of time. We don't have to make our clothes from scratch these days but cross-stitching an elaborate pattern can fill many happy hour especially now that no one is supposed to be going out of the house for happy hours. There are really all kinds of old fashioned time. Killing options crosswords card games. Long board games like monopoly or risk scrapbooking quilting when running around from place to place. It's easy to assume we have no time. And so he filled the time we do have with the easiest thing available hence the two hours daily that even people with fulltime jobs and kids clock watching tv if you're trying to work from home while whom schooling your kids or chasing toddlers all day you may not have energy for anything else i get it but if you're not in that situation these long hours present an opportunity to try something else and maybe just maybe when life gets back to normal will remember that a great many other projects are possible. What sorts.

What's in your wallet. Limited time offer terms apply see capital one dot com for details Welcome to before breakfast. A production of. I hurt radio. Good morning this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to build and maintain close ties. People you mostly see virtually in the past few weeks. Plenty of people have been trying remote work for the first time. It's necessary under the circumstances. But i know that for many people. There's an assumption that it's a poor substitute for an in person connection whole industries of business. Travel have been built around the idea that in order for people to work. Well and creatively together. They need to spend a lot of time face to face as someone who's been working from home since two thousand and two. I think this is kind of ridiculous. As one example i co host. My other podcast. Best of both worlds with sarah. Hart unger who's a practicing physician who lives in florida. I live in pennsylvania. She and i have seen each other in person. Just half a dozen times over the last five years. But we've managed to start and run an enterprise together and have quite a bit of fun doing it. These things don't need to be either. Or i'm certainly not saying that. You never need to see people in person. But we won't all be engaged in social distancing forever when we are on the other side of this we can all recalibrate what should happen in person. And what really doesn't need to thus saving time and wear and tear on our planet. So how do you maintain close virtual relationships. I found that video conferences are a key part of it. Sarah hughes squad cast to record our podcasts which allows us to see each other and our guests even though were only recording audio. I have zoom pro account to which i use all the time facetime on your phone is good for one on one type stuff before. There were good video conferencing options. It's true that remote work did feel more distant but now this isn't true at all and unless we're talking about someone you're planning on touching allot. The human brain has no way of knowing that interacting with someone via video is different than interacting in person. Because how would it know this. It's not like our caveman ancestors would have had a way to see people without them being right there. This is why people who are on television a lot report that when people see them on the street or in a restaurant they act like they know them as if the relationship is mutual. Rather than one way. It's kind of funny but you can use that knowledge to your advantage. Whenever you possibly can do video calls. Yes this means you need to build in time to brush her hair or shave but so it goes as a side note. Video calls massively cut down on the multitasking. That happens during audio calls. They're much more efficient. Second building socializing time into your video calls. I actually think it's wise to build and social time to meetings in general but this is doubly important when you're not going to be able to grab a cup of coffee or go to lunch afterwards. I run one monthly video meeting where we usually start with an icebreaker question. If the agenda is planned well you can still get through everything and given that meeting as much about the relationship as the stated agenda. This is a good thing. Third be more systematic about reaching out. The human brain doesn't naturally think of people that we don't see frequently again. That's just the way were built if someone disappeared from our caveman tribe for six months. Well the odds weren't good. That person was coming back so in our modern world. You need a mechanism for thinking about the people you'd like to maintain relationships with even if you're not physically seeing them all that often. Some people are kind of funny about this. I get regular emails from people at a certain time every three months and i know that they've probably made it a goal to reach out to the people in their broad networks every quarter. Yes kind of humorous. But it's also effective. I remember these people. Frequency of contact makes you feel closer than you might actually be so built in time to go through lists of your social media connections old colleagues people on your christmas card lists whatever if you can come up with a decent reason to send a note then do so and of course take advantage of random opportunities to subscribe to lots of industry newsletters and anytime you see someone mentioned that you know reachout while none of this means that we never need to see people in person. I that these in person meetings can be relatively infrequent and you can still feel quite close. I have a small mastermind group. That i've run for awhile. And i realized that i can count on one hand the number of times. I've seen its members in person in the past five years. I would consider all of them my good friends and colleagues. I believe they'd say the same about me all the self isolation doesn't actually have to be isolating if you're smart about it. I'd love to hear your tips for staying in touch.

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.

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

"Who discovered how to write much more efficient emails. Email is a great tool I love hearing from before breakfast listeners for instance, email can be sent and received at whatever time works for the sender and recipient. This is very efficient. But e mail can also cause a lot of confusion people skim long messages and missed the last line asking for what the message was really about or people read along message trying to figure out what the center wants only to get to the end and realized that the sender doesn't need anything. The email could have been processed at a less urgent time. In any case before breakfast listener Peter wrote in with an email format that he uses it forces the writer to be more thoughtful gets to the NUB of the problem quickly and allows the recipient to deal with it efficiently, and effectively he says. Here's how it goes. I put in the subject line what you want the recipient to to if the email. Example phrases include for approval for Info for endorsement for action update to previous email and so forth. After you've written what the person should do with it then you write the subject. Peter notes that this allows the recipient to sort win to deal with it. So an office refurbishment project for instance, might inspire an email with the subject for approval new furniture purchase. Then, you start the email with what Peter Calls A. B. L. U. F.. Maybe we'll say that's a bluff that stands for bottom line up front one sentence only. Our furniture email might contain the bluff seeking your approval to purchase new office furniture in line with new office plan budget. If. This is all the recipient needs Peter notes than he or she can just reply approved no need to wade through anything else to get to the action required. Perhaps the person choosing furniture has done a great job with the last round of furniture purchasing and it's not worth the managers time to wade into the details. All is good. E mail has been read quickly and responded to quickly. Now if the situation needs more explanation than the next paragraph should be a what this is a one to two sentence expansion on the bluff. Remember that's the bottom line up front. After that, you can include eight. So what paragraph now this might not always be required Peter Peter Notes. But if the person receiving an email needs to know why they're being asked why this needs to be done by a certain point, this paragraph can explain it. Then the final paragraph contains the what next statement This describes the next required action. Probably, this was explained in the bottom line, upfront the bluff but in case there's any confusion you can spell it out again here. and. Then you're done. I like Peters approach and I think it's a good idea in general for emails. There's a place for long conversational notes but when someone gets two hundred emails or more day that place is probably not his or her inbox explaining exactly what you need in the subject line and putting the bottom line up front increases. The chances that the email inspires the action.

"To fill all available space. And just as you will never get and stay at Inbox, zero. Never arrive at a perfectly clean house that will then fall prey to toys, junk mail, and dirty dishes. Email. And Housework. Will both take any amount of time you give them. That means that any hacks designed to lessen impact are going to be of limited use. And yes. you can write shorter emails. He probably should. You could even right instead of okay in your emails and yes, you can develop a system for emptying the dishwasher that makes it take five minutes instead of seven minutes. Awesome. But fundamentally, the only way to make these activities take less time. is to choose to give them less time. The good news though is that this approach does work. When I've managed to convince people to limit themselves to three to four email checks per day done at certain times they do in fact, spend less time on email. And I think tours are best approached the same way. Batch them and designate certain times. When chores aren't always options, then you can enjoy the rest of your time without feeling guilty. Here's how this can work. Spend some time today thinking about the chores and errands you normally do over the weekend. Be Judicious what truly needs to happen. And what's not critical? While you might need closed for the week you probably don't need to wax your floors. Or you might need to go grocery shopping. You don't need to cook all your meals for the week ahead of time. Choose to make simple meals that you can whip up in fifteen to twenty minutes on weeknights instead. Now, estimate how long these tasks will take. And what can overlap? If all household members participate. How much time would it take to get through these things? Perhaps one party could switch clothes from the Washer to the dryer and run the vacuum while someone else goes to the grocery store and drops off the dry cleaning. Once, you've figured out a rough window. Designate a block of time in which you will do almost all of these things. For instance maybe you decide that from ten to twelve on Saturday morning, you will do the bulk of these weekends at. Make sure this is a time everyone can participate. Make a game plan. Then assess what things will need to happen outside the window. Ideally, not too much. If, you've got a reasonably sized family. You'll still need to do some dishes in empty the dishwasher on Sunday. Even if Saturday from ten to twelve is the official chores errands time. And perhaps, the laundry that was washed Saturday during this window is still in the drier outside the window and might need to be put away. But make sure to prevent scope. Creep. If one party is assigned to pick up and vacuum the basement playroom from ten to twelve on. Saturday. And this is in fact on then. Do not go redo it on Sunday just because there are toys out. Of course, third toys out it's a playroom. That's what happens. But. So what? No one is going to come around at eleven pm Sunday night to give you demerits for having toys on the floor. So. Just let it be and relax and have a glass of wine instead. There was a time for picking up the playroom. And now is not that time. If you start thinking this way. I promise your weekends. We'll start feeling much better. Do, designate a time for weekend chores. If so I'd love to hear about it. You can email me at before breakfast podcast at iheartmedia dot com. In the meantime. This is Laura. Thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time. Everybody I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips, your questions or anything else.

"It to make your bed in the morning to clean your desk before quitting time. To pick up the house before bed. I know lots of people feel strongly about this, but I think that this has more to do with personality then whether there's an objectively correct answer. A few years ago like many people. I listened to Admiral William mcraven commencement speech telling graduates that if they want to change the world, they should start by making their beds. The idea is that how we do little things and the order we create around us through these little victories is what allows us to big things in the long run? Lots of people agree with the admiral his speech has been viewed more than ten million times. I'd point out that his speech was actually more about various other lessons he learned in his military service, but most people are never gonNA face harsh combat conditions or survives special forces training. Everyone, on the other hand can make his or her bed, which is why that's the lesson that's often repeated from the speech. So is this a wise idea? Is Making your bed the first step to conquering the world. I know it's a popular idea magazines devote cover lines to the idea that you can clear your clutter and Change Your Life. Marie condos life changing magic of tidying up became a cultural phenomenon with its charge that life begins when you put your house in order. But as someone who doesn't make her bed every morning or clean her desk most days or particularly care if the house was cluttered when I go to bed I have to say I'm not sure. I'm not sure that spending time creating these signs of outward order is the universal cutest success. Instead, I think that some people are more bothered by untidiness than others. There are neat types and there are let it go types. One is not better than the other. There are successful and unsuccessful people in both camps. However since I focus on the twenty four hours, we all have a day I. do know this. If you can get yourself to a place where you are slightly less bothered by a lack of visual tidiness, you can save quite a bit of time. Here's one way to find out what sort of camp you fall in. Does it. Bother you to have a high number of unread messages on your inbox. ICON. I don't get worked up about deleting stuff, and if I have no new messages that I haven't dealt with are only a handful, my icon generally says somewhere around six thirty. Six thirty messages to me six thirty messages basically means zero it doesn't bother me that it isn't actually zero. But when I tell this to some people or they see my phone, they say this would drive them crazy. They say I should go through and delete all these unread messages would say zero but I fail to see why This would not change my life in any way if my icon six, six thirty or it's zero. Likewise. No one sees my bed during the day. Sometimes, I make it and sometimes I don't. I'm not more productive on the days that I do it. I don't work near my bed where would enter my world view anyway. As forgetting that bed at night, I can fall asleep whatever's going on the floor whatever the bed looks like just view it as irrelevant. But in my talks and workshops on time management I know that many people feel differently. People's time logs will show thirty to sixty minutes cleaning the house before bed. So I. Ask why? Is there going to be an eleven pm. Home. Inspection. Is. Someone coming around to give demerits for having toys on the floor. Well. No there is no eleven pm home inspection and nobody is giving out demerits. In fact, those toys are just GonNa come out again the next morning and you'll never get that our back. That might make rational sense but people tell me they simply cannot relax if their house houses a mess and similarly I'm sure that some people would feel incredibly distracted and ill at ease by that six, hundred, thirty number on their inbox an unmade bed might make them worry that life is falling apart. If that is you well, then you'll need to spend time on it or you can find someone else who will whether voluntarily or for pay, but there might still be ways to save time. For instance, if you really need a neatly made bed, don't have an elaborate bed one sheet on comforter and only as many pillows as you and any bed mates need for sleeping. Arranging a dozen throw pillows is the way of madness. Turn the bed making process into a thirty second ordeal Max, and if you really can't relax if there's a mess in the house, I suggest this clean one room shut the door and sitting there. Frees up all kinds of time. Do you make your betty today. Are, you in the neat.

"Snoozing is a terrible idea. Either get up the first time or set your alarm for the time. You actually intend to get up. But one listener Carlo road into. Remind me that snooze button can actually be used for good as long as you're not using it to go back to sleep. Carlo for instance uses his snooze button to segment his morning activities in a more efficient way. He and his kids need to leave the house that certain time, so he segments the hour before they leave into six nine minutes segments with a little time change leftover. He uses one segment to get himself dressed. He uses another to help. The kids get dressed. He uses a segment to eat a quick assed. He's a segment to do some morning house chores and a segment to make lunches for everyone. Then the last segment is devoted to gathering everyone and everything together to get ready to go. This way he doesn't have to keep watching the clock, but he also knows quickly if the running behind and he can course correct before the morning goes off the rails. Carla. Snooze Button at work to when he's in a time crunch. I set up an alarm at a specific time. Say Four o'clock and use the snooze to plan two or three activity bursts. He says such as answering complicated email by the first news sending all his meeting invitations for the next day by the second snooze and planning the next morning tasks by the third snooze. As he reports this way I have finished several menial tasks and I can feel organized for what comes ahead. I think this is a great idea. Of course, if nine minutes doesn't work for, you feel free to set your phones timer for any other amount of time. Lots of people swear by the door technique where you set a timer for twenty five minutes focused on something intensely for that time and then take a break. You can set alarms for other things to. Say you're in a meeting and you know you need to leave on time, but you really want to focus on the other person. Instead of trying to sneak peeks at the clock here and there set an alarm for a few minutes before you need to go. The other person will hear the alarm to, and so it provides an opening to move things along and and things, but you can completely relax up until.

"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast

"Breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to save time by picking up the phone. Once upon a time in thirty years ago, people who wish to communicate instantaneously with someone generally had to pick up their phones and call them. There were downsides to this method. Sometimes people were out and before cell phones that meant their phones weren't with them. Sometimes people were busy doing other things explaining what you want on, the phone has never been easy. You have to put yourself out there. The recipient of the call would have to respond in some way even if she or he hadn't been anticipating the question. Email and text have solve many of these problems. People can read and respond when it's convenient for them, you can explain what you want in disembodied words, so any rejection or stated responses. Don't hit you so personally. Because of these upsides we have a tendency to email or text to the exclusion of phone calls. Indeed, there are some people who are basically never pick up the phone to call someone, and that's a shame because calling is often the most efficient way to do anything complicated. Arranging dinner with a friend, the back and forth on scheduling restaurant choice a reminder that your friend was going to ask her roommate to join, but she's got a shellfish allergies, so maybe not the crab shack, but how about that Mexican place across the street? All this can easily stretch to a dozen emails or texts. While ringing phone technically interrupts whatever you're doing. It does so once you chat through the shellfish allergy issue and make a plan. Then you are done. Whereas those dozen tax will interrupt you a dozen times. That's not more efficient. The phone also allows you to hear emotions and react based on that. You can soften responses and reassure people. So that makes it a good choice for any conversations. That might be sensitive. There is some evidence that emails are perceived more negatively than the sender intended. The vocal calibrations you hear on the phone, allow you to interpret the sender's true intentions. Why does this matter for efficiency well, misunderstandings waste all kinds of time. Your colleagues spends hours wondering whether you're mad at him rather than on advancing your team's project. So go ahead and pick up the phone next time. You need to work through anything complicated. If you know the person, you actually don't need to arrange a time to call, you can just call. The sheer logistics of arranging a time can eat up anytime. Savings instead learn to communicate through this relatively old fashioned method, and you can spend your save time doing other things like cleaning out your inbox. In the meantime, this 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.

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.

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.

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

"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. Am You can also tell your employees that you generally don't expect them to respond at odd hours. You'll call if you need them. Respect for boundaries means you'll have employees who are happier and more recharged. So how will you be more careful with your emails? It's worth the time to think it through when we talk. The words are generally gone but in email can last forever best to get it right. In the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

"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

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.

"two cups" Discussed on Before Breakfast

"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.

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.

A Recipe for Rudolf's Christmas Cookies

"Tis the season for cookies and these little treasures remind me of Rudolph and ingredient and equipment list at the end of this video. The big surprise is that none of the typical cooking ingredients like flour. Sugar eggs are needed for this recipe. Start by pre heating your oven. Seven to three hundred and twenty-five degrees line of baking sheet with sides with nonstick tin foil. 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. The white chocolate poor about two cups of water. Just off the boil into a medium size heat-proof roof bowl put the white chocolate chips into a small baggy set the baggy into the bowl in about five minutes. The chocolate will be melted. Squeeze the chocolate into a funnel. Final shape and snip the corner of the baggy then. squirt a decorative pattern on the top of the cookies with the melted chocolate. If any of the cherries have fallen off use the melted chocolate as glue to reposition the Cherry. The way chocolate almost looks like snow. Happy Holidays for the ingredients. If you need raisins sliced almonds shredded coconut in cornflakes sweetened. Condensed Milk Candied Cherries semi sweet chocolate chocolate chips and white chocolate chips for the equipment. You'll need a baking sheet with sides nonstick tin foil dry measuring cups liquid measuring mixing Spoon Spatula. Cutting hoard paring knife mixing bowls small ziplock baggie butter.

K. political correspondent rob Watson well we're gonna get into parliamentary mass shortly but first in what way is this different from former prime minister Theresa may still good morning James glowing group I'm good morning everyone well in many ways it is and I'm in about ninety percent of it is absolutely exactly the same but it differs in two key ways seven sons of the of the withdrawal agreement pots with the divorce but if you like the bit that's legally binding will become a treaty I mean that are essentially a Mister Johnson paid the price if you like for one single Hans Breck says with Northern Ireland I mean it's a brutal way of putting it but essentially under this Dale Norman island will have a different relationship with the European Union to the to the rest of the U. K. and a lot of calls is why the Democratic Unionist Party that Protestant possible come ons them in a second so fed up the second man which is differences and then the other bit which isn't legally binding the political decoration which looks forward to the future license ship off the divorce I mean that there it's clear again Mr Johnson once a much more distant relationship between the European Union and the U. K. right I I know everyone in parliament's will go along with that what's the matter saying right now well I was thinking when it when it was sitting here waiting for you to come three times I think about it look old James wants to know everybody listening as if I was going to happen in the vote was robe and then and then I can say I don't know and I'm just gonna go and pull my second Cup of tea of the day so looks what's what's your question I don't know it looks incredibly tight the BBC we have a unit down at Westminster of colleagues who who look at what every single am PS seven the last time I looked at that school that this way which was three hundred and seventeen votes for the government three hundred and twenty two against but obviously yeah Mr Johnson is going to be engaged in a and a massive operation of of charm persuasion arm twisting between now and sense the lunchtime charm persuasion on Tristen sure what about a some suggested bucket loads of cash heading towards an old an island in one form or another I'm not corruption I'm not suggesting that by any means but but things to sweeten the deal I mean I think that that certainly possible but but here's the thing the is back to where I started uniform was being brutal what is the price of Mister Johnson's breaks up and where is it different from what Mrs may sodomizing differed so much more himself inside it's Norman on and I mean Norman on and will be treated differently now if you are a member of the Democratic Unionist Party what is their raise all natural water they exist for is to preserve the union between Britain and Northern Ireland I mean that's that's what they're about that's what really floats their boat right and and so they think that any arrangement which makes Northern Ireland the province last close economically that's the rest of the U. K. that could be the beginning of the end time that could be the beginning of of Northern Ireland becoming closer to to Dublin and sets up so it's a Brussels so one suspects on such a matter of principle but of course I may be horribly wrong I think you know no matter how much money off of them it's it wouldn't do it well promotions being Harvey right so much things as I five a brexit we'll see if that streak continues and MPs in parliament this weekend for that crucial

Three billion cups of coffee every single day. It's around the world. But a Cup of coffee at may mean a different thing to different people. If we assume one Cup is a standard measure of Cup.

"I guess there's some serious stuff being linked to a too much caffeine slash energy drinks. So the the new study is stroke and seizure and it's not just caffeine. I don't wanna pick on caffeine because in a smaller energy drink. There's about seeing this caffeine has a Cup of coffee, but it's combining with the sugar. Imagine this imagine taking your Cup of coffee and putting about fourteen teaspoons of sugar in that. You would never do it. Right. So and then we combine that with a couple of amino acids that the isolate and then some other chemicals and herbs, and then it's a cocktail that increase your heart rate. And actually we shown the constrict your blood vessels. Which is the big scary part is so I'm not alarmist. And I always feel like these things are for people who have pre existing conditions or they're just going way overboard, and slamming, you know, five red balls, but I guess there's some evidence that just one energy drink could possibly trigger arrhythmia, right? Yeah. I'm I'm with you on the moderation in in most things in life. And I think we're all going to be fine. Right. But this particular thing because of the the the combination of things in that did show with even with young people one drink really can do something to your heart. That would you said in a written years, which is an abnormal rhythm. And that constriction of your your arteries is concerned, especially back constriction happens in your brain. Now. This is something that people would feel with their hearts are racing or they may not even feel it, and then wouldn't seek help you may or may not feel this this arrhythmia it can be mild to where you can't feel it and you're not going to seek help because it's a it's a short term thing. But if you go on and use over and over again, then you've got a real problem. So I think it's if we look at it most people a couple of cups coffee in the morning, not bad for you. There's some evidence that one or two cups of coffee is actually has some health benefits. Know, we're drinking four or five cups of coffee in the morning. And then we pound these things in the afternoon in the evening. I worry about early morning people you guys get up early every day. Probably don't go to bed at a at a normal hour because it's hard to do that. I would think now is wondering if people who may have a Cup of coffee in the morning before they go workout first thing you combine the caffeine with exercise and raising your heart rate. Yeah. But but there's really no evidence that one Cup of coffee, even before your workout can really doing damage to you. So I think he's with with coffee. It's moderation with the energy drinks. I think it needs it should be elimination. And I've seen some studies in the past that said that younger people are more prone to problems does that make sense to you. This study did look at eighteen and under and it had it had a negative effect even on young people. So I think I think we need to focus not just on the on the older folks with heart conditions. I think these energy drinks in particular because of the cocktail that it is. And speaking of cocktail, sometimes they're people combined these with alcohol evening, right? I'm gonna I'm sure you've heard of that. I've seen it done a lot. Yeah. Even more evidence that when we combine it with alcohol now, we got an extra cocktail. It's it's even more Rick. So I'd say so so I was going to I guess you answer my next question. Do you would you say just to avoid these things altogether? I would. Yeah. This is one that like I said earlier, I'm with you in moderation host things, but in this particular avenue, I think we've got to eliminate these things because I don't I don't think. I'm not a fan. That's probably the only one I tasted that was enough for me. Yeah. Me too. And then there's there's over sixty these on the market today, which is hard to believe, it's huge business. I know and I saw there's a huge rise in the diagnoses of irregular heartbeats. I gotta be somehow related Dr David Barschak. Hey, dr. Thanks, good stuff. My pleasure. Have great day.
