Send Me Gluten Free Subscription Box

Send Me Gluten FreeIt’s hard to find healthy food subscription boxes, and almost impossible to find any that taste good. Send Me Gluten Free is one company that is out to change that! When the box arrived I was greeted by a bright orange package which put me in a good mood. Sure, they could’ve sent it in a plain brown box, but they took the time to make this subscription special for each person.

When I opened the box I was surprised at the sheer number of items. With subscription boxes you will normally get 4-5 samples, but this box was filled with really unique and healthy food options. I found some familiar and loved names like Justin’s, but there were also some really unique snacks in the box such as chocolate rocks!

The next step was to try the food and see if it actually tasted good. I am pleased to say that every item in the box passed the taste test with flying colors. The food not only looks good, but it taste good too. For some shoppers finding foods that are gluten free is a real task. This company does all of the hard work for you, and in fact they take things a step further and send along coupons and relevant information about the products in the box so that you can continue to enjoy them even after you’ve finished off the food in your subscription.

Distraction-Free Writing: How to Handle Distractions

Distraction-Free Writing- How to Handle DistractionsI’m making it a habit to write daily; that is, whatever comes to mind. A person can write for years and become good at it. Yet, they suffer with distractions. Writers are not exempt from distractions. Every writer has a personal life outside of writing and they too, have to deal with this. It agitates me madly when I’m trying to write down my thoughts and a train passes by my place of stay. My neighbors, sometimes, family will play loud music or constantly knock on my door. Better yet, the phone seems to never stop ringing. No one is calling about something important and you think, “Couldn’t this wait until a later time?” Writing in a world filled with distractions is very difficult. It takes a lot of skill and technique to get beyond it. Today, I want to share some techniques with you that I think could help you as a writer, author, novelist, poet, lyricist, or whatever form of writing you enjoy doing.

My first tip is staying focused. Writing is considered a goal. There’s an end and a finish to it. You pick up your pen or pencil, apply it to paper, and then let your thoughts ride. The minute I notice a distraction, I speak to my inner self and remind myself to keep going. You can’t quit till you cross the finish line and feel satisfied with your writing piece.

The second tip I have to offer is taking a break. What! Are you sure? Yes, I am sure. You have to give your brain and thought process a break after a certain amount of hours. My rule of thumb is every four hours. During your break, leave your current setting and find a new atmosphere. Find a spot that’s calm and relaxing, such as a park. Remember to bring a notebook and something to write with. Don’t make it an intention to write because this is a break, remember? I am asking you to bring a notebook because you can run into something that intrigues you. I call this the test of the wills. Thoughts come and go, and you cannot expect your brain to remember the ones coming at you rapidly.

Distraction-Free Writing- How to Handle DistractionsThe third tip is finding the perfect timeframe. This is very difficult, though it sounds easy. Some writers have to write late at night when everyone in the house is sleep and all personal errands are done for the day. Other writers prefer to write in wee morning hours before any chaos hits the day. I have even seen some writers write in the middle of the day, during their lunch breaks from work, and at certain times designated for writing.

I want you all to succeed in your writing. The very last tip I have to offer is grabbing a cup of coffee or tea. Drinking something hot stimulates the mind and pushes you to continue writing down your thoughts when distractions are near. Please do not flatter yourself into thinking that you will not have to deal with distractions when you write. Distractions come in many forms; down to the sound of forceful wind. It’s how you handle them and how well you use emotional intelligence to balance your attitude about the distractions.

Good luck and promote “distraction-free writing” wherever you go!

 

How Often Do You Snack?

How Often Do You Snack? You just had that sinfully rich ice cream from Martine Lambert in Rue Cler for dessert and now you’re craving for those delicate artisanal pastries from Carl Marletti in Rue Censier in Paris. Paris is indeed a haven for all lovers of fine food and of course, all the fine things in life. And having a snack to go with your mid afternoon coffee is a practice beloved by Parisians and many cultures all around the world. Most of us try to get in three meals a day (some skip breakfast), so we compensate by snacking during the day. So here’s a little secret, you can actually snack more than once during the day and not ruin your diet. When you want to have a little snack and you want treat yourself, you can also visit Popelini in Rue Debelleyme for the best profiteroles.
Following a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat is a bit of a challenge. Like playing poker, you need focus and discipline. You can now play poker without having to dress up and go to a real casino. But if you’re looking for the thrill of a live poker game, you can join the tables at Casino Croisette in Cannes. You can be a poker expert in no time when you follow these tips, and you can also be a master of your own diet when you know when the best time for snacking is. Always keep in mind that you can snack anytime you want as long as your last meal is at least four hours ago. If you exceed more than that, you risk of eating more than you should during your next meal. If you must snack on something substantial yet big on flavor you can try the famous artisanal baguettes and loaves from Pain d’Epis just around the Eiffel Tower and have some delicious savory treats like their fougasse and baguette royale.
Most importantly, you should snack after one hour of intense workout. Whether if it’s cardio, judo or pilates, your snack should be protein rich or you can also load up on carbohydrates. If you want to go the healthier route, you can have a protein shake, a tuna on whole wheat sandwich or hummus and pita that can be just as satisfying. You should also refrain from snacking between breakfast and lunch. People who snack between those meals also tend to snack during the midday so the calories add up and so does your weight. If you want to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, you can check out the organic goods and produce at L’Epicerie Generale in Rue de Verneuil, Paris.
