I love to eat this snack. It satisfy my cravings every time I think to eat. I also love to share it to my sister. My mom used to cook this. But now she is working she has no time to prepare this wonderful snack for us. I hope she will find time to prepare this snack.

Research has also linked high consumption of quercetin with catching fewer colds, says University of South Carolina researcher J. Mark Davis, PhD. His virus-avoiding strategy (besides steering clear of those who are sick and being vigilant about hand washing) includes loading up on quercetin-rich foods. Best of all, he says, are red onions, which have quadruple the quercetin of most other produce. Eat them raw or cooked, though cooking foods with quercetin may make the antioxidant more easily absorbed.

you have worried in vain.. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'

33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.
GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.
'If God is for us, who can be against us?'
My instructions were to send this to four people that I wanted God to bless and I picked you.
I decided to send it to more than four, because I didn't want to limit blessings.

2-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup millet, toasted (see Tip)
1/2 cup amaranth
Honey, maple syrup or raw cane sugar
Milk or non-dairy alternative
Dried cranberries, cherries or raisins, optional
Toasted chopped nuts, optional
What to Do
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Add millet and amaranth in a steady stream, stirring constantly. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, until grains are tender and liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Serve hot, sweetened to taste and with milk or non-dairy alternative. Sprinkle with cranberries and nuts, if using.
Tips: For best results, toast the millet and amaranth before cooking. Stir the grains in a dry skillet over medium heat until they crackle and release their aroma, about 5 minutes.
Unless you have a stove with a true simmer, after reducing the heat to low I recommend placing a heat diffuser under the pot to prevent the mixture from boiling. This device also helps to ensure the grains will cook evenly and prevents hot spots, which might cause scorching, from forming. Heat diffusers are available at kitchen supply and hardware stores and are made to work on gas or electric stoves.
Slow Cooker Method: Use a small (3-1/2 quart) lightly greased slow cooker. Use a small (3 1/2 quart) lightly greased slow cooker. Combine ingredients in stoneware, adding 1/2 cup (125 mL) additional water to mixture. Place a clean tea towel folded in half (so you will have two layers) over top of the stoneware to absorb moisture. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or overnight, or High for 4 hours.

Dust off your hiking boots! Now's a great time to join the millions of others who experience wildlife, celebrate nature and shed extra pounds—at the same time!
With the growing number of nature paths sprouting up around the country, lots of people have turned to hiking for workouts that are as effective as they are enjoyable. In fact, it's estimated that more than 75 million Americans went hiking last year.
And who can blame them? Much like fitness walking, hiking burns calories, helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure, increases energy and reduces the risk of heart disease…without putting much stress on the body.
"I live near a trail along the Potomac River, and I hike it at least once a week," shares Mary Margaret Sloan, president of the American Hiking Society. "Not only has hiking strengthened my cardiovascular system, but it helped me lose weight and keep it off.
"Walking the mall or taking brisk strolls around the block are fantastic forms of exercise, too," points out the Arlington, Virginia resident. "But hiking offers unique opportunities, such as seeing wildlife or beautiful foliage, that you won't find in a shopping center.
"Plus, hiking presents physical challenges such as trekking varied terrain, stooping under low-hanging branches and jumping over puddles.
"Hiking has terrific emotional benefits, too," continues Mary Margaret. "In today's hectic world, I depend on nature trails to provide quiet places for me to slow down and think about the things that are important to me.
"Sometimes I hike with a friend so we can talk without interruptions. Other times, I hike to listen to the birds or visit a stream," she says. "I usually enjoy my time on the trail so much I forget what a thorough workout I'm getting."
Taking the Beaten Path
There are two types of hikes: day and extended. Day hikes usually involve paths and don't require much equipment or know-how. Extended or overnight hikes require more equipment and experience and don't necessarily follow marked trails.
"If you're just getting started, consider day hiking," recommends Mary Margaret. "But as with any fitness activity, remember to consult your doctor first before beginning."
Once you get your doctor's approval, meet with a park ranger or contact a local hiking club to find out which nearby trails are best for you. (See the American Hiking Society's Web site and how you can find a hiking club near you.)
"It's always a good idea to stretch before and after a hike," Mary Margaret reminds. "Warm up by hiking slowly, and gradually increase your speed.
"Keep your first few hikes short, and build up to hiking longer distances as you become stronger."
Eventually extend your hikes to include greater physical challenges such as hiking up hills. If you stray from the trail, make mental notes of unique landmarks to avoid getting lost. "I bring a compass with me regardless of the distance I'm hiking," notes Mary Margaret.
"Personally, I find just the pure act of hiking to be pleasurable," she adds. "Try it. As long as you stay within your capabilities, you'll return from each hike feeling better than when you left."
