Creamy Southwest Chicken : Low Carb

Creamy Southwest Chicken

 

southwest chicken

Low carb chicken recipes are a must-have for many on low carb diets. This creamy chicken skillet dish is one you can have on the table in 20 minutes, from prep time to finished product, using canned green chiles and shredded cheese for enhanced flavor. This is also one of those dishes you can still serve to family members who may not be on the low carb diet you’re on. Just add their desired side dish, with your low carb options at the same time. The chiles are mild, so this isn’t a spicy dish, but it is a tasty one. Serve with refried beans and/or a salad and sliced avocado. To give it some heat and spice things up, add red pepper flakes or sriracha.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
  • 1/4 cup onion (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4.5 ounce can green chiles (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup cheddar (shredded, or jack cheese)

Preparation

1) Heat large skillet with oil over medium heat.

2) Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. Saute until brown on both sides, adding onions about halfway through.

3) Add garlic and cook for another minute.

4) If needed, deglaze the pan with a little water.

5) Add green chiles and cream, and simmer until chicken is done on both sides and the sauce is thickened.

6) Top with shredded cheddar or jack cheese, and serve when cheese melts.

Optional garnish: avocado slices or cilantro.

Suggested Additions: Add low carb veggies such as chopped broccoli or cauliflower to boost fiber; use feta cheese and sun-dried tomatoes instead of cheddar or jack.

Slow Cooker Creamy Southwest Chicken Recipe

In addition to pan frying this creamy chicken dish, as this recipe does, you can use the recipe in a slow cooker. By using the slow cooker, you can create this dish with less prep time. If you go the slow cooker route, you can forego chopping the chicken into small pieces and leave them whole.

Here’s how: Add all the ingredients, except the cheese, including chicken stock (1/2 cup), into the slow cooker. Top the ingredients with the chicken and finish with the salt and pepper to taste. Depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts, anywhere from 4.5 to 6 hours and your dish will be ready. As you serve the chicken, top with the shredded cheese. Quinoa noodles are a great relatively low carb supplement to add to the slow cooker version of this recipe.

Plastic Tea Bags : Plastic in Your Body

 

Billions of ‘Microplastics’ in Your Tea From Each Plastic Teabag

News Picture: Billions of 'Microplastics' in Your Tea From Each Plastic Teabag: Study

A new study warns that even your soothing cup of tea might serve up some invisible health hazards.

Some tea companies are replacing traditional paper teabags with plastic ones, but the new bags may be adding billions of tiny bits of plastic to your beverage, a team from Canada reports.

“We show that steeping a single plastic teabag at brewing temperature [205 degrees Fahrenheit] releases approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage,” concluded a team led by Nathalie Tufenkji. She’s a professor of chemical engineering at McGill University in Montreal.

The global proliferation of microplastics — bits of plastic so small they are often invisible to the naked eye — have made headlines recently, having been found in large numbers in ocean and tap water, seafood and even human poop.

“In the past few years, there has been a steadily increasing body of scientific literature demonstrating that not only are microplastics permeating the broader environment, they are entering our bodies, as well,” noted Dr. Kenneth Spaeth, chief of occupational and environmental medicine at Northwell Health in Great Neck, N.Y. He wasn’t involved in the new research.

Spaeth stressed that there’s just too little data on whether or not microplastics pose a threat to human health. However, “based on the molecular composition of microplastics, there is reason to have real concern about the potential health effects,” he said, “since they contain a variety of components known to harm human health — including hormone-disrupting chemicals, as well as human carcinogens.”

In the new study, the Montreal team noted that the heat of brewed tea can cause plastic tea bags to break down into bits of plastic that are thousands of times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. That means you can’t see, taste or feel them in your mouth.

Investigating further, the researchers removed the tea from plastic teabags sourced from four different manufacturers. They then washed out the empty bags and placed them in hot water.

Using a powerful electron microscope, Tufenkji’s team found that a single bag released close to 12 billion microplastic particles, and more than 3 billion of the [even smaller] nanoplastic particles, into the water.

These levels were thousands of times greater than seen in other foods, they noted.

In a separate experiment, the researchers fed varying doses of these particles to very tiny animals — water fleas. Although the fleas lived, they did exhibit some physical and behavioral abnormalities after being fed the microplastics, the researchers report Sept. 25 in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Still, more research must be done to see if microplastics have health effects on humans, the McGill researchers said.

Spaeth said the new study “raises the specter that human exposure to microplastics is not just a result of the widespread contamination of the broader environment, but that our use of plastics in consumer products is notably adding to our microplastics exposure.”     Steven Reinberg

Be Cautious With Vitamins B6 and B12

Be Cautious With Vitamins B6 and B12

 

To look like Chris Hemsworth in two “Thor” films, his stunt double, Bobby Holland Hanton, reportedly ate 35 times a day, sticking with grilled chicken, turkey, spinach, nuts, and boiled eggs.

Even he says that’s over the top.

Are Vitamin B-12 Pills Good for Weight Loss?

But you don’t need to be a superhero to overdo your quest for a better body. Even postmenopausal women can end up over the top by taking excessive supplements of vitamins B6 and B12.

Vitamin B-12 is an essential nutrient for bone and nerve health. Although this vitamin might boost energy, increased B-12 intake does not cause weight loss.

An international team of researchers looked at data on more than 75,000 women from 1984 to 2014. Among the 2,304 who had hip fractures, the women whose intake of both vitamins B6 and B12 was the highest (35 mg per day of B6 and 20 mcg per day of B12) had an almost 50% higher risk of hip fracture.

Those doses are 20 times the 1.5 mg recommended daily allowance for B6, and more than eight times the 2.4 mcg RDA for B12.

How’d they get so much? Well, one popular multivitamin for older adults that we looked at delivers 250% of B6 and 833% of B12.

So if you take a daily multivitamin, aim for one with doses close to the RDAs, and enjoy foods that promote red blood cell and nerve health (B12) and metabolism of proteins, lipids, and carbs, as well as cognitive development and immune function (B6).

Foods sources of vitamin B12 include salmon (1 serving equals 80%/RDA), tuna, fortified cereals, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat milk.

Vitamin B6 food sources include chickpeas (1 serving equals 55% of the RDA), salmon, chicken breast, fortified cereals, and non-citrus fruits.

When you take a B6 or B12 vitamin, and it is not taken in combinations of what you need for YOU, then those B vitamins will engulf, or eat all the other B vitmains in your system.

Like other condiments, tartar sauce is only as good or as healthy as its ingredients, which pretty much always include mayonnaise and sweet relish or pickles. As you may already know, a lot of mayonnaise and pickle brands include unwanted preservatives, flavorings and coloring. Plus, sweet relish or pickles are usually loaded with refined sugar.

Before you keep reading, don’t worry, how to make tartar sauce is not hard, and it’s so worth the effort because homemade tartar sauce always has that freshness and flavor that you just can’t get in any pre-made version.

Homemade Colon Cleanse

Homemade Colon Cleanse with 3 Juices

2b17ea802772e1c5d2db8102b08bc583 (2).jpg

Many people suffer from chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut and other issues with the digestive system. Because the colon has an important job of eliminating waste, it’s critical that you keep it running smoothly.

Fortunately, there are things you can do to help alleviate discomfort associated with toxins and digestion issues in the body, such as a homemade colon cleanse. I have shared details about why a colon cleanse is important, but what’s great is that you don’t need to see a doctor about it — and can make your own colon cleanser right at home.

A homemade colon cleanse can help flush out some of the toxins in your body that could be contributing to your discomfort and also offer natural relief from constipation. Just plan a day when you do not need to leave home so that you are able to adjust to the colon cleansing changes in your body and the elimination of waste as you begin the detox and internal cleansing process.


Apple, Sea Salt, Ginger and Lemon Colon Cleanse

Let’s get started making this great homemade colon cleanse. You will need a tall glass and a spoon. To start, place 3.5 ounces of purified water in a pan. You want to warm the water, not boil it, so that you can drink the water at a safe temperature.

Once it is warm, pour it into your glass. Then add the sea salt, often part of a salt water flush, and stir. The sea salt will help release toxins, pushing waste through the body and ultimately improving digestion.

Now, add the apple juice, ginger juice and fresh lemon juice. Stir. Where do you think an apple a day keeps the doctor away came from? Well, maybe it is not specific to the colon but it did come from the idea that whole foods, such as the nutrition-rich apple, brings good health and a healthy colon definitely yields good health. In fact, a study shows that those who ate an apple a day had less visits to the doctor and fewer prescription medications.

Ginger is great because it reduces bloating while stimulating the colon, keeping it free from wastes and harmful toxins. And let’s not forget about the amazing lemon! Lemon juice aids in digestion, detoxification and is high in vitamin C, making it a great antioxidant .

How to Do the Cleanse

Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Then have this mixture again just before a light lunch, preferably of steamed vegetables and baked salmon, and again mid-afternoon.

Have 6–8 glasses of room temperature water throughout the day. It may be best to slow down the consumption of liquids after 5 p.m. so that you are not awakened in the night, with having to go to the bathroom.

Risks 

Performing this type of colon cleanse should not present any problems; however, it is always good to check with your doctor if you are pregnant, have a disease, suffer from allergies or are taking any prescriptions medications prior to any new activity.


Homemade Colon Cleanse with 3 Juices

Total Time: 5 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ cup 100 percent pure organic apple juice ( juice the apple yourself)

  • ½ cup warm purified water

Directions:

  1. Start with a tall glass and a spoon.
  2. Place 3.5 ounces of purified water in a pan. You want to warm the water, not boil it, so that you can drink the water at a safe temperature.
  3. Once it is warm, pour it into your glass. Then add the sea salt and stir.

Turmeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin

Turmeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin

 

e1e3426aeda040044595a275f7200876 (2)

One of my favorite DIY skin masks is made using benefit-rich turmeric. Turmeric has been all the craze for dietary reasons but did you also know that it can also help your skin?

Turmeric, traditionally known as Indian saffron because of its deep yellow-orange color, has been used throughout history as a condiment and textile dye. Turmeric also provides amazing healing benefits, not just inside the body, but for your skin. Indian brides have long used turmeric body scrubs and face masks to purify and cleanse their bodies as well as provide a healthy glow by brightening their skin right before their weddings.

Turmeric, a herb used as a main ingredient in curry, can benefit your skin as a home remedy for acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. It also reduces skin inflammation due to being high in antioxidants and slows down cell damage. As well, it can help reduce pigmentation that evens out skin tone.

What makes turmeric work so well? Turmeric has shown significant anti-inflammatory activity because of its volatile oil and its yellow or orange pigment, which is called curcumin. Curcumin, a phytonutrient, contains anti-inflammatory abilities that have been shown to be comparable to many drugs on the market today, but unlike drugs, curcumin produces no toxicity.

A turmeric face mask is an excellent exfoliating agent and very easy to make right at home with just a few ingredients. However, it is important to note that some people have reported allergic reactions to turmeric after skin exposure. I recommend testing on a small area of your skin first. You may need to use a mild soap with water to remove the yellow stain that may occur. Be careful not to get it on your clothing as well, since it may stain.

With consistency, this turmeric face mask will give you glowing skin!

 

Turmeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin

Total Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1–2 applications

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of organic, raw, local honey
  • ½ teaspoon milk or yogurt
  • [optional] 1 drop lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice for additional skin brightening

Directions:

  1. Wash face and hands first to remove impurities and any make-up.
  2. In a small bowl or jar, mix the turmeric powder with the honey, apple cider vinegar, milk or yogurt and optional lemon oil. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin as it may drip.
  3. Apply the mask carefully avoiding your eyes.
  4. Allow the mask sit on your face for 15–20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
  5. If you have any leftover, you can cover and leave in the fridge for your next application.
  6. Apply twice a week for best results.

Bruise Cream with Arnica & Bilberry

Bruise Cream with Arnica & Bilberry

Bruise cream - Dr. Axe

All of us get bruised every now and then, from the kids taking a fall while playing to simply bumping into that nightstand … ouch! Bruises can be unsightly, and it can seem to take forever to heal bruises. While having a good diet can truly help with the healing process, using natural home remedies can make an even bigger difference.

I want to share my recommendation for the best DIY bruise cream. Try this and watch that bruise fade away.

Let’s start! If you have double boiler, you can use that or simply place a heat safe dish or jar in a pan of hot water. The key here is that we need to soften the skin-healing shea butter so that we can whip it into a nice texture.

Now, place the jojoba oil and shea butter into the double boiler or your heat safe dish and hot water. Bring it to a point where it is getting soft and stir with a whisk so that you continuously blend well.

Once well, blended, transfer to a small mixing bowl.

Next up, add the arnica oil! Arnica has been used since the 1500s to reduce bruising on the body — and it works due to the helenalin, a natural anti-inflammatory agent, within. Not only does it reduce the discoloration of bruising, but it reduces the pain, too, as arnica is commonly used for sore muscles.

We know we can’t go wrong with unrefined coconut oil. Let’s add this to the mixture, while continuing to blend. Coconut oil is great for helping to remove impurities and toxins from the skin and can help heal any damaged or bruised skin.

Have you heard of comfrey oil? It can do wonders for your bruises due to anti-inflammatory properties it contains. The leaf, root and root-like stem are commonly used to make medicine and has been attributed to its high content of allantoin, a substance that promotes new skin cell growth. Add the comfrey oil and continue to stir. I want to note that there are parts of the comfrey plant that are toxic. While comfrey oil should be just fine, make sure you know what you are buying and use in small amounts.

In the next step we will add the bromelain and bilberry extract. Did you know that bromelain comes from the pineapple? It contains proteolytic enzymes that help reduce the inflammation caused by bruises. For your recipe, just empty the capsule into your mixture. And let’s not forget the amazing bilberry! Bilberry, similar to the blueberry, contains antioxidants that will also reduce the swelling and appearance of bruises.

Now, let’s add some essential oils. Blend the frankincense drops right into the mixture. Frankincense has been used since biblical times and helps reduce pain and inflammation caused by bruising.

Once you have blended these ingredients, slowly add the water and continue to blend well. If you like the mixture thick, simply add less water. Try blending just a little at a time to help get the right consistency. Use as much or as little as you want.

Now that you have blended the ingredients to the consistency that you prefer, transfer the mixture into a glass jar. Use two to three times daily until the bruise has diminished. If you notice any irritation upon use, use less frequently or discontinue use.

You now have an amazing chemical-free bruise cream filled with completely natural ingredients! Depending on how warm it is where you live, you may want to keep it in the refrigerator to help maintain the consistency and just set it out for a few minutes prior to use to allow it soften.

I hope your entire family enjoys the benefits of this useful bruise cream!

 

Bruise Cream with Arnica & Bilberry

Total Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 10–12 ounces

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup jojoba oil
  • 1/4 cup arnica oil
  • 1/4 cup shea butter
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil
  • 3–4 drops comfrey oil
  • 1 500 milligram bromelain capsule
  • 1 teaspoon bilberry extract
  • 10 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 1/8–1/4 cup of purified water (based on desired consistency)

Directions:

  1. Using a double boiler or a heat safe dish or jar in a pan of hot water, add the jojoba oil and shea butter.
  2. Whisk to soften the mixture and blend well.
  3. Once well-blended, transfer to a small mixing bowl.
  4. Add the arnica oil and blend.
  5. Add the coconut oil and blend.
  6. Add the comfrey oil and continue to stir.
  7. Empty the bromelain capsule into the mixture and stir.
  8. Add the bilberry extract and frankincense essential oil. Blend well.
  9. Once you have blended these ingredients, slowly add the water and continue to blend well. Adjust the amount of water to get the consistency you want.
  10. Transfer the mixture into a glass jar.
  11. Keep the container in the refrigerator to help maintain the consistency and just set it out for a few minutes prior to use to allow it soften.

Most Heart Attacks are Caused by Hospital Employees

In-Hospital Cardiac Arrests May Be a ‘Major Public Health Problem’

News Picture: In-Hospital Cardiac Arrests May Be a 'Major Public Health Problem'

– Many more U.S. hospital patients suffer cardiac arrestthan previously thought, a new study reveals.

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops beating. It differs from a heart attack, in which blood flow to the heart is blocked.

This new analysis concluded that there are about 38% more adult cases and 18% more cases in children each year than estimated in a 2011 report.

“Our findings illustrate a concerning trend in U.S. hospitals, and show that cardiac arrest is a major public health problem,” said study co-author Dr. Lars Andersen, an associate professor at Aarhus University in Denmark.

The findings stem from American Hospital Association survey data. They were published July 9 in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

“Previous incidence estimates may no longer reflect the current public health burden of cardiac arrest in hospitalized patients across the U.S.,” Andersen said in a journal news release. He oversaw the study as a visiting researcher at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

Using recent U.S. hospital data, Andersen’s team estimated there are about 292,000 adult in-hospital cardiac arrests and 15,200 child in-hospital events each year.

That’s up from the 2011 estimates of 211,000 adult cases and 6,000 in children.

“Unfortunately, the data does not provide an explanation for the increase in adult in-hospital cardiac arrest, but it is likely due to many factors and may reflect an increase in actual events or in the reporting of cases over time,” Andersen said.

For example, the investigators believe the hike in pediatric cases is likely due to expanded reporting.

Andersen noted that life-support training programs tend to emphasize out-of-hospital resuscitation. The new findings suggest these programs should be expanded to include potential in-hospital responders, he said.

“It is also important to note that end-of-life discussions and decisions are crucial in order to avoid attempts at resuscitation in patients where it is likely futile or against a patient’s wishes,” Andersen said.
