Spices Of Life From Your Kitchen Shelf

Sunday, April 28, 2013


While beans are actually one of the healthiest carbohydrate sources available, loaded with
 fiber and protein, there's actually one variety of beans you should be AVOIDING at all costs:

Baked Beans.
Fact is, manufacturers of commercial "baked beans" are completely RUINING this health
 food by piling in sugars galore along with a slew of artificial ingredients.

Many brands are now even including high fructose corn syrup and numerous other corn ingredients, such as corn starch, in their products...bad news!

For example, a 1-cup serving of canned "baked beans" contains more than 20 grams of ADDED sugar on average while the same 1-cup serving of regular kidney beans, pinto 
beans, red beans, etc, contains only a gram or two of naturally occurring sugar. BIG 

That said, when buying beans and adding them to your diet (which is actually a great
 choice), make sure to avoid commercial "baked beans" products and instead go with
 bean products that don't add all the extra junk.

Some great varieties of beans and legumes are:

Pinto Beans
Red Beans
Navy Beans
Lima Beans
Black Beans
Black-eyed Peas
Marrowfat Peas
Butter Beans

And there are even some natural packaged versions of the above listed beans and legumes that add a number of healthy and natural seasonings to spice them up a bit. The lesson here
is to avoid "baked beans" in favor of the plain stuff (which you can then spice up at home)
and when buying anything packaged, take a good, hard look at the ingredients and  nutrition facts.

If it's got added sugar and artificial ingredients, skip it!

But what if you didn't have to worry if you were making the right food choices with every food you buy?  What if it was all laid out for you, plain as day, in step by step, meal by meal
 fashion?  No guesswork, no confusion!

Hey, it's Andre' and today I'm going to reveal, MY ONE DAY DIET SYSTEM which you can
easily follow every day to get a great flat belly fast.
First, let's be brutally honest… dieting just sucks. (bet you don't hear many nutritionists admit
 this.) This is why it is no surprise that hardly anyone on the whole planet ever gets excited
 about dieting. Have you ever heard someone say this: "WOW! I'm so excited,  I get to EAT
LESS and stress myself out MORE with a wonderfully confusing and time consuming
 program!" However, what if I told you that there really is a very simple, and easy, way to get
 a flat belly that
removes all of the guess work and also allows for daily "treats" that you can't wait to enjoy?
You'd probably say I'd lost my sanity, right? Well, maybe that's true, so let's jump right into the 
Secret #1: Harness the power of intermittent fasting. This is where you send your fat-
burning hormones into overdrive by eating your meals during a specific window of time during
 the day.
 (I will not bore you with all the scientific details now, just know that it's a great trick to remove
 all that dangerous flab, safely. 
Secret #2: Enjoy two, super-quick, 60-second flab-burning "protein shakes" during the day.
 (I'll show you how you can get my favorite recipe book, 101 Fat-Burning protein shakes.
Secret #3: Eat a nutritious, balanced dinner in the early evening.
MEAL ONE: Skip breakfast (what?!) and then eat your first meal at 12 noon. Your first
 60-second meal will consist of a fat-burning, all-natural, 100% high-protein shake."
I change the flavor daily, so here's what I enjoyed today:
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
2 scoops of all-natural 100% Vanilla Protein
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
Honey (to taste)
5 ice cubes
Notes: Put all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
MEAL TWO: Three hours later at around 3PM have your second 60-second fat-burning, all-
natural, 100% high-protein "shake" meal. Here's the recipe I used today:
Strawberry Cheesecake shake (delicious!)
2 Scoops of all-natural 100% Vanilla Protein
1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 TSP Cinnamon
Honey (to taste)
5 Ice Cubes
Notes: Put all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
MEAL THREE: Three hours later at around 6 pm, have a healthy dinner which consists of:
     1   A portion of a lean protein source (like chicken, grass-fed beef, fish, or turkey) equal to
          the size of your palm and the thickness of a deck of playing cards.
     2    A half cup of a nutrient-packed complex carbs like half a sweet potato, quinoa, barley
           or beans.
     3   A cup or two (eat all you want really) of fibrous veggies like mushrooms, broccoli, 
          cauliflower, peas or a dinner salad. (Use a bit of olive oil and seasonings to flavor.)
          I also drink at least 8 large glasses of water per day (important)… and I enjoy a cup of
         green tea or organic coffee most mornings. Then, one day a week, I take a day "off                                                  
         " MY ONE DAY DIET SYSTEM and eat regular meals all day (typically Saturday for

         I follow MY ONE DAY DIET SYSTEM for 30-days and then take a full week off and
         In order to keep things interesting, I constantly switch around my fat-burning protein
        shake  recipes and as mentioned I'm going to give you the opportunity to get my recipe
        book called "My 101 Fat Burning Protein shakes"!
