bringinUp us6

toDay being emo and remembering my mum and her advise and ways in bringing us6 up..
"Used to be, your mom's was the lone voice urging you to eat breakfast before leaving the house. Now she's been joined by legions of professionals who've conducted studies that prove just how wise she really was. Breakfast, it turns out, really is the most important meal of the day ..." Well !! i remembered, my mum being very strict and make sure that we eat before to school; that early morning all rushing to school worried to left behind by the school bus, my mum, bless her soul will be with us waiting for bus while spooning us the "breakfast", usually nasik goreng, quakerOat and such.. And we got spooned till we start work.. huhu!! Miss her sooo much ... But today's children will say, "xleh makan nanti sakit perut" ..

Disiplin~~putA scare in kids

ever scared of the postman ?? huhu my youngeer times, "nakai2 lah dtg postman mummy masukkan hampa dlm parcel nd post so xjumpa mummy and daddy lagi" Yup!! when we see the postman we all lari. But the postman of today does not look like postman of before, quite elderly and naik basikal or motor buruk. Postman of today looks like this ...

young .... if sometimes not handsome *wink wink* and naik motor, they want to vrooommm vrooommm jea.

But actually this more to point out disciplining the children as just came across a gutso local girl who refuse to Q for a ride on the swing, with her "lak, lak" which means "NO ... NO". I also remembered my arwah mum, bless her soul putting a beetle in a transparent plastic bag to scare my very2 hyper nephew and we always recall the incidents with him and laugh, now a father wonder how he gonna discipline the daughter later, fun to see, huhu ..

Research shows that high-fiber foods can help keep you healthy in a number of ways, including aiding in digestion and improving heart health. My younger days high-fiber foods were thought to be important mainly in promoting regular bowel movements. What Is Dietary Fiber? soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, when mixed with liquid, soluble fiber forms a gel, and in your digestive tract, this gel helps to keep you feeling full and slows down digestion. Insoluble fiber does not form a gel. Instead, it passes through the intestinal tract intact, keeping things in motion.
Soluble fiber comes mainly from the insides of fruits and vegetables. Insoluble fiber comes from the skins of fruits and vegetables, and from whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
"Fiber is not just important for regularity — it can also help stabilize blood sugars, lower bad cholesterol levels, decrease the risk of certain cancers, and even help with weight loss,

As such, Up Your Fiber Intake With These High-Fiber Foods ~~~ Avocado, berries, whole-wheat noodles, popcorns

EatinAwareness !!

Eating should be a conscious act, not just something you do every time you walk past the fridge. Give your complete attention to the food. Enjoy the taste, be aware of the aroma and all the flavors-sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent.
We all have them, those irresistible foods , the trigger food, food that we can't seem to eat enough of. For me its Sambal ikan bilis and rice hot or cold, especially my Mum’s sambal, bless her soul. Al-fatihah. Semoga roh beliau diberkati dan bersama orang2 yang soleh, Ameen. If not paying attention as I’m eatin them, only realizing I already had 3 or so helping.

I came across an article, eating with awareness or “mindful eating” , a way to prevent overeating. “ When you eat mindfully, your aim is to focus solely on the here-and-now experience of eating — the sight, flavor, texture, and aroma of the food, plus the thoughts and feelings you have as you eat”. ….should I say more like a chef or a food critics, *wink wink*.
Practice mindful eating:
Eat only when you are seated at your kitchen or dining room table. No eating sambil in front of the television, reading, driving (untuk menghilang ngantuk or boring) , lying or sitting in bed, or doing anything else that requires your attention.
Keep the focus on the food rather than the conversation. To me this will be the problem, it's nice to chat with company while you eat, .. “but don't get so wrapped up that you forget to notice and enjoy your food”.
Savor each mouthful .. that’s easy ….
Take a moment to assess your hunger. Are you a little hungry? Moderately hungry? Ravenously hungry? .. but this so soooo difficult has I also have a human trigger, huhu myhoneyLuv who luvs to cook and eat and wants company.. *wink wink*
As you eat, pause to check in occasionally with your hunger. Aim to stop once you feel satisfied rather than eating until all the food is gone. … this will need a lot of endurance .. *wink wink* Push your plate away, and give your body 15 to 20 minutes to register whether or not you are still hungry before you eat more.
Probably over time and I hope not until too late, learning to eat in the moment will help break free from mindless eating and make meals more enjoyable and satisfying. "If we expand our awareness about eating, we can take care of 99% of digestive problems," says Deepak Chopra, M.D., an endocrinologist in Stoneham, Massachusetts, and author of Creating Health.
