April 5th

Good Afternoon my friends. It’s been a busy week. I thought today was Friday already. I was so surprised when my son informed it wasn’t. LOL

That gives me another day to get ready for the Book Signing on Saturday. What a relief that was. I have so much to do yet.

Let’s take a look at the National Days before I have a chance to be interrupted.

April 5th is National Deep Dish Pizza Day, a day designed to celebrate Chicago’s Deep Dish Pizza and bringing it nation-wide. So if you are a pizza lover like we are at Davis Chiropractic, here are some healthy pizza tips the next time you have the craving.

1. Whole Wheat is a far better choice – it increases your fiber content 50%.

2. Using low-fat mozzarella instead of regular cheese will lower saturated fat and cholesterol.

3. The more veggies the better giving extra fiber and nutrients

Whether you are ordering from a restaurant or picking up ingredients from the store, remember there are always healthier ways to continue to enjoy those cravings but keep a focus on your health. Keep watching us here for more recipe tips and other helpful suggestions for your day.

What a great way to start the day off with a healthy deep pan pizza. Sounds like a great day for me.

National caramel day

For more information go to :http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/04/05/national-caramel-day/?shared=email&msg=fail

 

While you’re frying up some eggs and bacon, we’re cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today’s food holiday.

Dulce de-Licious! Set your palate for sweet because April 5 is National Caramel Day!

When you give sugar a tan, it rewards you with even more sweetness, and this may be the only time when nearly burning something makes it taste even better.

Slowly heating sugar to 340 degrees Fahrenheit will result in the yummy process that is known as caramelization. Exposing the sugar to this kind of heat breaks down the molecules and transforms them into a golden brown liquid state.

This can lend its flavor to caramel apples, pies, pralines, nougat, brittle, or specifically, crème caramel and crème brûlée. Or, you know, drowning a dessert in rivers of caramel sauce. Just an idea. Unwrapping individual caramel candies is also a fun way to use this syrupy sweet treat in your baking.

Slow down and step back in time by baking old-fashioned caramel cupcakes. They are a true “labor of love,” and you even get to make your own caramel – but they’re totally worth the effort.

Thursday, April 5, is Go for Broke Day.

Today is your chance to risk it all. Gamble and bet, because on Go for Broke Day, luck is on your side. Not a gambler? No problem, this day is not necessarily about money. Anything goes, from relationships, jobs, projects, and basically any decision that has been going through your mind.

Here’s how you celebrate:

  • Projects: If there’s a particular project dwelling on your mind – make the decision today. Either drop it or take on the challenge.
  • Relationships: Can’t seem to get your relationship on track? Perhaps it’s time to let go of that road and open a new chapter in your life. Or, if the opposite is happening and you’re ready to make that step into a forever after, today would be the day to do it.
  • Job: Is your employer or workplace driving you nuts? Quit and follow the goal you’ve been dreaming of. Or maybe you were offered a sweet promotion – accept it!
  • A piece of advice: Think over it carefully and decide if the risk is worth taking. Although, sometimes you really don’t know until you do it.No source or creator was found for this day. Learn a little more about it, here.

Remember to use caution on what you do. If you are out of work, out of money, you don’t have a lot to loose and can only go up. However, don’t risk what you have. Appreciate the little things in life and don’t risk them for anything.

Today Go for Broke means take those chances that might just be the opportunity that knocks on your door. Keep your mind open to change, but also be practical.

Whatever you decide to do listen to those close to you.

Good Luck on this one everybody.

Remember that many people are affected with either Autism or some for of Mental Health Issues. Our entire population is affected by these. It is important to learn and understand as much as you can about these issues.

Check on-line for updates, current articles, , research studies, diagnosis, symptoms, and education for quality of life issues.

There are many different degrees of Autism and they are rapidly changing definitions and diagnosis and medications. Keep up to date on this information.

Mental Health covers everything from Bi-Polor  to Depression, PSTD and many more areas. They have their definitions and medications changing as quickly as Autism does. You can use the same approach for finding information on-line.

Find support systems in your community. Health and Welfare can always provide you with information and if you have unanswered questions ask a doctor.

Support your friends, neighbors, and family members who are faced with these health issues. They are real and shouldn’t be ignored or made fun of.
