  • 10 Foods That Should Not Be Frozen
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
    Published On 17 Apr 2015

    Some foods fare much better than others in the freezer, and plenty of them will get completely ruined by freezing them. From changes in texture and taste to actual health concerns, freezing these foods can have plenty of unwanted consequences.

    When you plan your meals, make sure that you don’t shop for the foods that should not be frozen hoping that you can keep them in the freezer for longer. Even freezing them for a day can lead to some unpleasant results.

    1. High Water Content Vegetables

    While there are plenty of vegetables that can be frozen and still keep their taste and texture intact, you should avoid putting any veggies with a high water content in the refrigerator. When you thaw them, you’ll usually end up with a mushy mess that can also have a different taste. Potatoes, onions, radishes, cucumbers, celery and peppers should never be frozen raw.

    2. Dairy

    Hard cheeses may survive the freezing process with no big changes in texture, particularly if you plan on grating them or using them when you cook. However, most dairy products are among the foods that should not be frozen. Everything from soft cheeses and yogurt to milk and cottage cheese belongs in the fridge. While liquid dairy will curdle once thawed, soft cheeses will have unpleasant changes in texture.

    3. Fruits

  • 10 Good Reasons to Give Up Coffee
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
    Published On 16 Apr 2015

    Drinking a lot of coffee can be detrimental, but even one or two cups a day can have plenty of unwanted effects on the way you look and feel. Kicking your caffeine habit is a good idea for many reasons.

    From the effects coffee has on your teeth, cardiovascular system and even your weight to the way it can impact fertility, discover the best reasons to give up coffee. While many of these effects would be reduced by switching to decaf, remember that it poses plenty of risks for your health.

    1. Avoid Dehydration

    Coffee is a natural diuretic, which means that you risk getting dehydrated and also lowering your levels of electrolytes. Research conducted at the University of Alabama has also shown that women who drink three cups of coffee every day have a 70% higher risk of developing bladder problems, including incontinence.

    2. Lose Weight

    Drinking coffee every day can also decrease insulin sensitivity, so one of the best reasons to give up coffee is to reduce the risk of weight gain. Even if you’re drinking it black, without the hundreds of calories from sugar in flavored coffees, it’s the caffeine that contributes to a lower insulin sensitivity, which is also linked to cardiovascular disease, because raised blood sugar levels contribute to arterial problems.

    3. Keep Your Teeth White

  • Why Is Your Vegan Cooking So Bad?
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
    Published On 16 Apr 2015

    It’s very easy to make the wrong choices even when you’re a vegan, from heavily processed foods to a diet full of fried vegetables or refined carbs. The best way to avoid these obstacles on your way to a healthy vegan diet is to start cooking yourself.

    While there are plenty of delicious vegan recipes available, you should always make sure that you avoid a few errors. Here are the vegan cooking mistakes that can sidetrack your healthy dishes and can lead you to think that cooking without animal products is a daunting task.

    Not Preparing Tofu Properly

    Before you cook it, tofu needs to be properly drained. The more moisture you leave in it, the more you risk diluting the flavors of your dish and even ending up with a really watery texture. You can use paper towels to draw out some moisture from tofu, but the best way to go is to use a tofu press, that will instantly improve the flavor and texture of your meals.

    Baking with the Wrong Egg Substitutes

    One of the biggest vegan cooking mistakes is to improvise when you’re adapting recipes. You might be able to count on your experience for most dishes, but when it comes to baking, things are a lot more tricky. You don’t just need more baking powder, you might also need to use chia or flax seeds for binding or applesauce or pureed vegetables for extra moisture. Look for tried and tested vegan recipes if you’re not sure not to adapt a traditional one.

  • 9 Ways to Make Your Butt Smaller
    Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
    Published On 14 Apr 2015

    While a lot of women would give anything for a Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez butt, not everyone who’s born with it views it as an asset. If you feel like you’d like a smaller butt, there are plenty of ways to achieve it, but the most effective ones will always be weight loss and the right exercise regimen.

    Find out how to make your butt smaller, from making the right weight loss choices and choosing the best exercises for your glutes to a few style tricks that will help you draw attention away from your backside.

    1. Try a Long Term Weight Loss Approach

    Lowering your BMI can reduce the size of your butt, even though you shouldn’t expect your derrière to shrink or grow proportionally to your weight loss efforts. The best answer to the question of how to make your butt smaller is to lose some weight, or focus on exercise if you’re happy with your current weight.

    Avoid crash diets and other weight loss plans that include severe calorie restrictions. They will slow down your metabolism and can actually increase the fatty deposits on your butt once you return to a better eating plan. Focus on making healthier choices and eating the right foods that boost your metabolism.

    2. Stay Active

  • Should You Pet Together as a Couple?
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
    Published On 09 Apr 2015

    Getting a pet is the next big step after moving in together for many couples, and it can also show you how things could turn out if you decide to have a baby together. Find out more about the obstacles and potential issues, so you can make this process as smooth as possible.

    Check out the best tips that help you when you’re getting a pet as a couple. From the right way to split responsibilities to considering every option, here’s what you need to know before you adopt a pet together.

    Make Sure You’re Both on the Same Page

    Deciding on the perfect pet can be difficult when you’ve got different priorities, but some things should not be ignored. Any allergies have to be taken into consideration, because even if they can be controlled with medication, your shared home should be a safe space for both. Make sure you agree on the type and size of the pet you want before you start looking for options.

    Choose Carefully

    When you’re getting a pet as a couple, one of the most important things to consider is your lifestyle. If you’re both busy or prefer spending most of your time outside of the home, you might not be ready for a cat or a dog. Consider the different personalities of breeds before making a choice. A rescue pet will definitely need more time and care, at least in the first few months in a new home.

  • Texts You Should NEVER Send a Guy
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
    Published On 08 Apr 2015

    Whether you’re crushing on a guy, or you’re at the beginning of a relationship, some texts just tend to come off the wrong way. They might be insulting, scary, or just create problems that you don’t really want. Some of these texts could lead to a fight, others are just simply uncomfortable.

    Find about more about the texts you should never send a guy, because without the tone of your voice and your body language, they don’t really represent what you really mean, or because they’re simply too harsh or inappropriate.

    “We Need to Talk”

    Every guy dreads these four little words, especially when they come out of the blue. Sending them as a text can get him worried or even freaked out, so he’ll be on the defensive when you do actually get to talk face to face. Don’t send this type of text to anyone, especially a guy you’re dating or your boyfriend.

    “We’re Done”

    Breaking up over the phone might be allowed, after just one or two dates, but usually this is one of the texts you should never send a guy. Informing him that it’s over in a short and aggressive way, in a text, isn’t just rude, it’s also something that nobody really deserves. Unless you have a reason to be afraid for your safety, tell him face to face that you’re breaking up.

  • The Absolute Worst Reasons to Lose Weight
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
    Published On 08 Apr 2015

    Losing weight when you don’t need to do it for health reasons can be difficult, particularly if you’re not motivated the right way and you choose a wrong diet. The right reasons to do it usually include the fact that being more fit would make you happier and healthier.

    However, many people make the mistake of thinking that losing a few pounds will make a big difference in their lives, and those weight loss efforts don’t usually have a happy ending. Check out the worst reasons to lose weight, and decide if you’re actually using one of them when you start dieting.

    Reaching Your “Ideal” Size

    Being hung up on labels is rarely a good idea. Just because you want to fit into a certain size doesn’t mean that this a healthy reason for weight loss. Besides big differences in sizes from different brands, you’re also getting too focused on an abstract notion, instead of feeling good in your body and wearing the clothes that fit you best.

    You’re Being Told to Lose Weight

    Unless the person telling you that you need to drop a few pounds is a doctor who has your long term health in mind, you shouldn’t cave into this type of pressure, whether it’s coming from family, friends or your loved one. One of the worst reasons to lose weight is to do it for somebody else, even if you really love them.

  • Surprising Reasons Your Hair Isn't Growing
    Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
    Published On 08 Apr 2015

    Trying to grow out your hair can be a frustrating experience, particularly if you’re giving up weaves and wigs after using them for a long time. Many people have trouble growing out their hair past a certain length, but that is less related to your hair’s growth cycle and has more to do with how you treat it.

    Check out some of the most common reasons your hair isn’t growing, and find out how to fix them. Keep in mind that your hair doesn’t actually ever stop growing, but a stable length usually has to do with breakage.

    You’re Ignoring Split Ends

    If you want longer hair, you’ll have to get the ends trimmed regularly to avoid split ends. If you don’t let any scissors come near your hair, you might notice that it stops growing, when actually it’s just dealing with a lot of breakage. Normal hair growth is about half an inch per month, so if you’re leaving in split ends, you’re risking breakage at the same rate.

    You’re Subjecting It to Heat Damage

    While split ends are often responsible for the apparent stunted growth, damage caused by thermal tools is also one of the reasons your hair isn’t growing. Use products that protect your tresses from the heat or just give them a break for a while, and you might notice an improvement.
