Insomnia and Organic Cherry Juice

Have Insomnia?

Did you know that Taking a shot of Tart Cherry Juice twice a day will help with insomnia? Cherry juice is a natural source of the sleep-wake cycle hormone melatonin and amino acid tryptophan.

Researchers from Louisiana State University had seven older adults with insomnia drink eight ounces of Montmorency tart cherry juice twice a day for two weeks, followed by two weeks of no juice, and then two more weeks of drinking a placebo beverage. 

Compared to the placebo, drinking the cherry juice resulted in an average of 84 more minutes of sleep time each night.

Yes, it is tart. I drink the Knudsen Just Cranberry Juice and think it is beneficial to the kidneys. Yes it is VERY tart but I feel that I am getting health benefits from it. I just drink a small juice glass full each day and sip it slowly. I guess you could “guzzle” if you would like. In my area, I can find these at my local grocery store. I have also found them at Walmart.

Not a cherry juice fan? Try kiwi. Eating two kiwi fruits an hour before bed was shown to increase sleep time by 13% and decrease mid-sleep waking periods by 29% after just four weeks, finds a recent Chinese study. Or incorporate seaweed into your dinner; the ocean vegetable is high in omega-3 DHA, which helped children get an extra full hour of sleep, according to a recent University of Oxford study.

Biscuits (Southern) Recipe – YUM!

Southern Biscuits Recipe

Yields 8 biscuits

Ingredients:
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the board
1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, very cold
1 cup buttermilk
1⁄2 cup sugar (for topping)

Preheat your oven to 450°F. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles course meal. If using a food processor, just pulse a few times until this consistency is achieved. Add the buttermilk and mix JUST until combined. If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet. Turn the dough out onto a floured board. Gently, gently PAT (do NOT roll with a rolling pin) the dough out until it’s about 1/2″ thick. Fold the dough about 5 times, gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds. You can gently knead the scraps together and make a few more, but they will not be anywhere near as good as the first ones.
Place the biscuits on a cookie sheet- if you like soft sides, put them touching each other. If you like”crusty” sides, put them about 1 inch apart- these will not rise as high as the biscuits put close together.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes- the biscuits will be a beautiful light golden brown on top and bottom.

Indonesian Chicken Recipe

I am always looking for new recipes that are healthier (specifically Diabetic and Cardiac friendly) as well as somewhat fast given my crazy work schedule.

I just found this dandy that will be on the menu for one night next week!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring the rice and water to boil in a pot. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Place green beans in a pot fitted with a steamer basket over boiling water, and steam 10 minutes, or until tender but crisp.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet, and cook the chicken 5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear.
  4. Mix the chicken broth, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, chili paste, lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until slightly thickened. Mix in the green beans. Serve over rice. Garnish with green onions and peanuts.

All the Missing Girls Book

This book was quite interesting!

The book follows a girl named ‘Nic’ who has to go back to her tiny home town when her Father has to be placed in a skilled care facility.  Her brother needs her help to clean up the family home and get it ready to sell (in order to help pay for the facility costs).

She has not returned to her home town since she was 18 years old and her best friend at the time had disappeared.  She has left the small town to pursue bigger dreams (including a Fiance).  However, once she returns home she easily gets swept back into her old life while another girl goes missing once she returns.

I was a little confused at first until shortly into the book I realized that the author was actually telling the story backwards.  Such an interesting way to tell the story and it especially makes all of the plot twists even more interesting!

Great read!  I am also excited to learn about another book by the same author titled “The Perfect Stranger”.  Guess what’s being added to my GIGANTIC reading list?  LOL

My current read is a little different – “A Man Called Ove”.  Hopefully I will be reporting on that one soon.  Happy Reading.

12 Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup

12 Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup

I try to diversify my reading by alternating between genres and mixing fiction and non-fiction.  I enjoy a great many different types of books and I swear I could never tire of reading!

This book was excellent – although the basis of Solomon’s story was sad, it was very well written and Solomon’s skill at documenting the tragic events of his life was both detailed and an interesting piece of history.

I also found it interesting to read his details regarding the cotton picking process (and of course processing) as well as the various stages of working in the sugar cane fields and how the sugar was processed – his level of detail is amazing!

Truly a wonderful book that I highly recommend.

Banana Drop Cookies

These are a light fluffy cookie and great for using up those overripe bananas! Easy recipe too!

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For topping (optional)

In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Cream sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Casserole – Low Carb ! YUM

Ingredients
3 cups cubed chicken (or Turkey)
16 oz (1lb) bag of frozen broccoli
1 med onion diced (about 1 cup)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cube chicken bouillon (or 1 tsp bouillon powder)
1/2 cup water (optional, I added this to help disperse the chicken flavoring but the water from the veggies as they cook also would suffice if the dish seems too watery to you)
1 Tbspn olive oil
1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)
1/4 c sour cream
1 cup ricotta
Bacon Grease

Directions
Grease a 9 x 13 inch casserole pan – I used left over bacon grease for added flavor, pan spray would be okay too (just maybe not as tasty )
Add broccoli, onion, chicken bouillon, water, olive oil and pepper to a medium frying pan.  Cook covered for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.  In a medium bowl mix the chicken chunks, garlic powder, sour cream and ricotta cheese together. Mix till blended.  After 10 minutes of cooking the veggies, pour the broccoli mix into the bowl with the chicken. Stir until blended.
Add 1/4 c of the shredded mozzarella cheese to the mix. Stir.  Transfer your mix to the greased pan and spread evenly.  Add the remaining mozzarella cheese to the top and pop that baby in the oven!  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 – 60 minutes.  Once the top layer of cheese is browned a bit it should be done.  If you like your broccoli on the softer side bake until the florets are to your liking. Serve warm and enjoy!
