Multi-Grain Waffles

 

 

 

Recipe By:  Patsy Jamieson

“Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indulgence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.

Ingredients

    • 2 cups buttermilk
    • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    • ? cup whole-wheat flour
    • ? cup all-purpose flour
    • ¼ cup toasted wheat germ, or cornmeal
    • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1 Mix buttermilk and oats in a medium bowl; let stand for 15 minutes.
  • 2 Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat germ (or cornmeal), baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  • 3 Stir eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla into the oat mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
  • 4 Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover three-fourths of the surface (about ? cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until waffles are crisp and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Wrap any leftovers individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat in a toaster or toaster oven.
  • Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food.

Follow these steps for a look that’s guaranteed to be brighter than your mood on Monday.

After a grueling work week, the weekend is a welcome opportunity to binge on House of Cards and do some laundry. But, if you can also squeeze in these quick and simple beauty treatments (even if it’s during a commercial break), you’ll see major improvements in your skin and hair by Monday!

 

Beauty treatments For younger-looking skin:

Try that new spin class you’ve been meaning to take this Saturday. Aside from the obvious tummy-flattening and mood-boosting benefits, working out also minimizes wrinkles. Why? Exercise helps support the production of collagen, which keeps your skin smooth and firm. Just don’t blame us if your coworkers start demanding your skin care secret at work this week.

For thicker hair:

Treat your scalp to a massage, which promotes blood circulation, stimulating hair follicles and eventually boosting your strand count. Start with your normal shampooing routine in the shower on Saturday night and gently knead and rake your fingers over your scalp for about 30 seconds. Repeat Sunday night and as often as possible for fuller hair.

For brighter eyes:

Look for an eye treatment with caffeine on the ingredients list like Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Gel and stash it in the fridge this weekend. The cold constricts blood vessels, reducing under-eye puffiness, while the caffeine detoxifies the thin skin under your eyes, breaking up the baggage. Dab – don’t rub – the cream onto your under-eye area as soon as you get out of bed Saturday and Sunday to look more awake on Monday.

For glowing skin:

On Sunday night, mix a pinch of turmeric with 2 tablespoons of manuka honey in a small cup, advises Jolie Martin, director and laser skin care specialist at Skinney Medspa in New York City. “Apply the mask to your face and neck to stimulate blood flow, draw out toxins, lighten dark spots, and kill bacteria,” she explains. Leave the mixture on your face for 15 minutes for radiant skin all week.

For shinier, stronger hair:

Show your hair some love on Sunday night with a nourishing avocado hair mask that’ll repair dryness, breakage, and dullness. You can try a DIY version by mashing up the entire fruit, combing it through your hair in the shower, leaving it on for 10 minutes, and rinsing it out with your favorite shampoo. Or, opt for a store-bought version like Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Repairative Hair Pak, which is laced with avocado oil that will leave your hair soft and manageable throughout your 40-hour work week.

Winter is coming! Are you ready? 

When it comes to fashion, winter time is challenging. Sometimes, you need to choose. Either to look fabulous and feel the biting chills. Or, bundle up and look like a big sack of potatoes. Obviously, women would prefer looking fabulous AND feeling warm at the same time.

Is it possible? You bet!

According to fashion gurus, the number one trick to keep warm during the winter is to do layering. This is when you wear garments on top of each other.  When you use this trick, keep in mind the word ‘style’ – the right color and look combination!

Additionally, aside from T-shirts, sweaters and jackets, another warming garment that women could use are shapewear products. Designed using temperature regulating technology, shapewears can do two things — contour your body and warm you up.

So, if you want to raise the temperature while sashaying during the coldest season, grab these two warming underlayers.

  1. Shaping camisole — Fashion experts say that turtlenecks are always ‘in’ when winter is around. Wear it with skinny jeans, boots, a coat or jacket, and you are good to go! Bella and Gigi Hadid nailed this look! But, what if you’re still cold or not confident enough to wear fitted turtlenecks because of flabby arms or midsection bulges? Well, simply use a shaping camisole with arm control shapewear as a warming underlayer! Keep firm your contour while enjoying the extra warmth.

 

  1. Shapewear legging — Using your favorite skinny jeans during winter will never be a problem if you have this ‘secret weapon’. Here is the trick: wear a high waist long leg slimmer shapewear legging under your skinny jeans. That way you hit two birds with one stone — you will look slimmer and at the same time feel warm and toasty!

 

That’s it! Be in style, but keep warm. Always take extra effort to enhance your contour whatever the season. Take it from British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, “Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”

SHAPEWEAR, THE HOLIDAY PARTY BOOSTER!

Party… party! Invitations are starting to pour in!

So, should you go?

If you ‘feel fat’, then the answer might be a big NO, right? A recent study reveals that women turn down invitations during the holiday season on the account of “they couldn’t find anything to wear”. They say no because they are not confident to flaunt their contour due to some bulges. Obviously, having this notion will dampen ones social life.

In reality, there are some holiday events where attendance is mandatory. Events like holiday office parties are still considered ‘work’. Company bosses expect all employees to attend. Moreover, if it’s a family gathering, some relatives may feel insulted if a family member is a no-show. So? Better get moving!

Truthfully, ‘I have nothing to wear’ is not a satisfactory excuse to turn down a celebration. What if the event turns out grand and you missed all the fun? If it is an attire problem, then apply this tip from image consultant Amanda Sanders — understated is always better! That would mean keeping things simple yet classy. No flashy colors or sequins. Accessorize by using nice earrings or a necklace to make your whole ensemble pop!

On the other hand, if bulges are the issue, then an undergarment like shapewear will come in handy. Designer Kiana Anvaripour once said, “Properly fitted undergarments improve your posture, your confidence, and the way you walk, which gives you a sleeker physique.” Moreover, according to fashion gurus, shapewears promises to do the following:

Produce a Slimmer Waistline

This is the best outcome shapewear products can offer. One to three inches slimmer! Commendable, right? A waist cincher shapewear tightens the midsection giving your contour a curvaceous look.

Hide all bulges

Aside from the midsection, women may feel conscious about their saggy arms and upper leg bulges as well.  Arm shapers, body shapers and shapewear shorts are the lead choices to ‘get rid’ of them.

Never let an idea like “I feel fat” benumb your spirit. Grasp a shapewear today and become the life of ANY party!!

Happy Holidays from Your Contour!

Your Contour: Let’s NOT count the ways!         

“Scrumptious!” … “Have another bite!” … Can I have some more?”

Ever heard or said these words during the holidays? Unfortunately, if you are apprehensive to ‘destroy’ your contour  by adding some pounds; or if you started a calorie counting program, then holidays might NOT be the ‘most wonderful time of the year’.

For sure, you have heard of calorie counting apps to make tallying child’s play. But, do you REALLY want to compute before savoring a piece of delicious pumpkin pie? Or, before taking a sip of your mom’s special eggnog? Yep, I think not!

Consequently, aside from not being enjoyable, calorie counting can produce a different outcome – gain a few more pounds! Ergo, tallying everything you eat is not for everyone.

Try these simple tips instead:

  1. Say no to second servings! Try every single foodstuff served, but only in small portions. If and when you want a second serving, go for fruits or vegetables.

 

  1. Work a workout! Going on holidays doesn’t mean eating 24/7, right? Insert a little hiking or jogging here and there. Instead of driving to visit a family member a few blocks away, why not walk? You will lose some calories and you won’t feel guilty when they offer some snacks.

 

  1. More Water please! Before enjoying a holiday banquet, drink lots of water. This will lessen your food intake. Food experts say that water has zero calories. Furthermore, Donna Logan, a registered dietitian at the University of Texas added that, “drinking water may help replace or avoid unnecessary food calories found in snacks or extra servings at mealtime”.

 

  1. Just Shapewear it! If you do gain a few pounds during the festivities, don’t have a meltdown. Just add a few more workouts to lose those added calories. While you are at it, use Shapewear products like arm shapers or body shapers to speed up the process of improving your contour!

Finally, the most important tip – Have fun during the holidays! Don’t stress about things that you CAN change sooner or later. If you need to count, count your blessings!

Happy festivities from Your Contour!

Your Contour Shapewear: Upgrading performance with Compression Garments

Stretch! Bend! Sweat!

Let’s face it, it is disheartening when, after all the stretching, bending and sweating the result you see is unsatisfactory. Maybe, it is time to get help from a friend, the compression garment. So, what are compression garments? According to scienceforsports.com, “compression garments are tight, compressive forms of clothing, often made out of elastin and nylon, which are designed to enhance recovery”. In addition to that, experts say it could also enhance the performance of athletes and fitness aficionados. Socks, legs, sleeves and tights are just a few examples of compression garments. Often people undergoing body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks use compression garments, but nowadays they are becoming a ‘gym buddy’.

Here are five benefits of compression garments:

1. Better performance :

Muscle oxygenation is crucial when exercising. Fortunately, the heart and the blood get the job done. According to experts, using compression garments while exercising accelerates the oxygenation process. The faster the blood moves; the quicker for the muscle to receive oxygen and nutrients. Consequently, once muscles are oxygenated, the body performs up to par and for a longer period.

2. Improves recovery :

According to Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist Dr. Ian Gillam, using compression garment is the closest to getting an iced bath. Gillam says, “There’s no doubt that it (compression garment) improves recovery for athletes and anybody that exercises intensely will get the same benefits because if they’re working really hard then it’s going to help them improve their recovery”. If it helps, why not try it, right?

3. Extra support :

When exercising, one cannot avoid moving vigorously. Unfortunately, excessive movement causes muscle pains or injuries. Ergo, wearing a compression garment is the answer. It compresses or tightens the muscles, thus stabilizing them. Performance gets boosted to a new level and muscle toning or building is also achieved faster.

4. Go for Cooler:

Compression garments are breathable garments due to its unique pattern as well as the materials used – nylon and spandex. The unique pattern minimizes moisture (sweat) from sticking to the body, making the garment lighter. All in all, this garment is far more superior to cotton made sports attire.

5. Lesser pain :

In doing exercise routines, pain is the name of the game. Some folks tend to give up on account of body aches. Compression garments like tights can help ease post-exercise aches. Exercise scientist Jessica Hills says, “When compression garments are worn during and after heavy exercise, they appear to reduce muscle soreness”. Furthermore, according to studies, compression garments can expedite the recovery time from muscle soreness. Keep in mind, the garment will only help ease the pain; muscle aches are always felt when the body moves a great deal.

Sometimes, improving the contour is a challenge. One needs discipline, determination as well as patience. For some, it’s a long and rocky path. Never give up! Remember what they say – no pain, no gain! Use effective tools – like compression garments – to achieve the dream.
Upgrade your performance today. Grab a compression garment, start moving and improve your contour!

“A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME WITHOUT A PET”

your-contour-shapewear-pets-blog
Sounds nice, right? But, here is the thing, having a pet entails two things – commitment and responsibility! Are you ready to become a pet parent?
Now before you say yes, here are some basic information about the top three pet choices – dogs, cats and aquatic pets. Read, learn and then decide!

For Dogs:

They are cute and cuddly. A man’s best friend! However, there are a few things you should know about them. Here are some facts –
• According to the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI), there are 340 dog breeds all over the world. What breed would you like? Remember, each one has their own temperament. Some are great with kids or babies while others are not. There are also ‘indoor’ dogs and ‘outdoor’ dogs. Some breeds could trigger allergies. All in all, research must first be done before buying or adopting a canine buddy. Pick a dog and learn everything about it.
• The ‘level of care’ for each breed varies. For instance, the level of care when it comes to grooming the Sharpei dog is high. You need to make sure their folded or excess skins get regular attention to avoid diseases.
• Whatever size or breed, all dogs need exercise. Can you spare a few hours each week to walk or play with the dog? Obviously, putting your dog inside a cage 24/7 is not a solution.
• Like humans, dogs also need medical and dental checkups. Aside from that, toys and other basic needs must also be provided. Can you afford them?

For Cats:

If dogs are not your cup of tea, then maybe you can try caring for cats. Here are some cat facts.
• The International Progressive Cat Breeders Alliance (IPCBA) recently reported that as of 2016, there are 73 different types of cats. Which would you pick?
• If a family member has allergies, make sure to get a ‘hypoallergenic’ cat. Top three choices are the Balinese, Oriental Shorthair and Javanese.
• Not all cats are laid-back. Bengal cats, for instance, are extremely active and may need some companion to play with. Persian cats, a popular choice, are easier to deal with.
• Adult cats are calmer, less rambunctious than kittens. These young creatures are the cutest, but kittens are full of energy and may need a lot of supervision. If you don’t have the time or the energy to ‘teach’ them not to scratch things, go for an adult cat.

For aquatic pets:

Do you want a pet that is always quiet and will never leave their home? Then, choose aquatic pets. Before buying one, here are some things you should know.
• Some aquatic pets need more ‘TLC’ – tender loving care! Not all fish are low-maintenance. The goldfish, for instance, are very popular pets because they look awesome inside an aquarium, but they are very prone to white spot illnesses.
• There are also ‘bully’ fish. If you want a ‘mixed’ aquarium, research the kind of fish that could live together. According to website fishchannel.com, some ‘bully’ fish are the Tiger Barb, Chinese Algae-eater and Angelfish. They can ‘nip’ and kill other fish in the aquarium so careful with the mixture.
• The best aquarium should hold five gallons of water. Moreover, an extensive filter system is also needed to make sure the aquatic pets have a safe, clean water supply all the time.
• Cleaning the aquarium is important. Even with high-tech systems, aquariums can still have high pH levels, nitrate and ammonia that could kill aquatic pets. So, test the water at least once a month. If positive with toxic compounds, then it is time for some cleaning and changing.

There you have it, some tips for the top three pet choices. Of course, there are other animals to choose from like birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, etc. The bottom line is — If you want to get the right pet for the family, do three things first – Read. Ask. Learn. Happy choosing!
