My Chill Weekend!

Hey guys! So I had a very chill but fun weekend!

Friday I cleaned my home! There were things that I had to to do here and there that I kept putting off throughout the week so I decided to finally get to it! Lol.

Saturday it snowed here in NYC. When I woke up around 11am it was snowing and it pretty much snowed all day! So I stayed in all day and binged watched this new show on Netflix my sister got me hooked on! Lol

It’s called The 100. It’s about people who lived in space come to Earth to see if it’s survivable after its destruction. Turns out that the people who were in space are realizing that there are signs of life on Earth after all which comes as a huge shock to them! The tv show has so many twists and turns I love it!

Sunday my husband and I went to Manhattan to hang out with our friends. We ate at this restaurant called Sweet Chick in Lower East Side which is my friend’s favorite restaurant! Let’s see if you can spot him in the picture above Lol! The restaurant had a very chill vibe. The lights were dim and candles lit everywhere it was small but still spacious at the same time. The staff was very attentive and polite too! Their specialty is Chicken and Waffles with a bunch of cool flavor options to choose from! I ordered chicken and spiced pecan waffles with a Mermaid Pilsner beer! Everything was so delicious! If you’re in the area, you should stop by and grab a bite and a cold beer!

Ohh and My Pittsburgh Steelers played the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night and boy was that a good game! We fell behind BUT came back and won by 1 point with only a few seconds left! Woohoo I love my team! Go Steelers!

How did you spend your weekend? have you had Chicken and Waffles before? Did you watch any football games this weekend? Comment below! ⬇️

6 WORST Foods To Eat In The Morning!

1. Breakfast Cereals

Many people think cereal is a good breakfast choice for children and adults.

But cereals are highly processed and contain mostly refined grains and sugar. 

Nutrients are also artificially added in a process called fortification.

Even the “healthier” cereals are normally loaded with a lot of sugar. 

2. Pancakes and Waffles

Both of these items have flour, eggs, sugar, and milk. Although they have more protein than other breakfast items, pancakes and waffles are very high in refined flour. Many researchers believe that refined grains like wheat flour contribute to insulin resistance and obesity.

Since pancakes and waffles are dressed with syrup, that adds even more sugar along with high fructose corn syrup. 

3. Muffins

Although muffins have a reputation for being healthy, they are pretty much just small cakes. They contain refined flour, vegetable oils, eggs, and sugar. 

Commercially sold muffins are often very large. One review found that a typical packages muffin exceeds the USDA standard portion size by 333%! 😯 

4. Sweetened Non-Fat Yogurt

Many non-fat yogurts contain more sugar than a comparable serving of ice cream!

Fat keeps you full because it takes longer to digest than carbs, and it triggers the release of the fullness hormone cholecystokinin (CCK).

5. Granola Bars

Granola bars may sound like great breakfast options but they actually contain a lot of added sugar.

Some of the popular brands contain a combination of sugar, corn syrup, and honey.

Granola bars have a low protein content which is another confirmation that this is not a good choice for breakfast.

6. Processed, Gluten Free Breakfast Foods

Eating many of the processed gluten free foods now available may cause problems.

For instance, a combination of flours that are made from rice, potatoes, and tapioca replaces wheat flour in gluten free bread and baked goods. 

These flours have a high glycemic index which raises blood sugar rapidly, leads to increased appetite, and weight gain! 

So it’s probably a good idea to limit these items in your diet or better yet, don’t eat them at all!

You’re probably wondering what you SHOULD be eating for breakfast right?! Well I got cha covered! 

Stay tuned for some of the HEALTHIEST food choices to eat in the morning! 😁
