I love Mondays!! Monday is actually my favourite day of the week! It wasn’t always like this, in fact there was a time in my life where I hated Mondays so much I would be depressed all Sundays and sometimes even the entire weekends in anticipation for the Mondays to come (yes, that bad!). Recently I received an email from someone requesting that I talk about what I do to love Mondays, any advice for those that suffer the “Sunday Blues” and dread Mondays. Yes, based on my own personal experience and what I’ve seen work for others, I do have a bunch of tips, suggestions and things to try– check out today’s video!

There are so many diets and weight loss systems and tools out there and I am frequently asked what my opinion is on counting calories. I do believe calorie counting can be a great tool, especially short-term calorie counting. Not only can calorie counting help someone lose weight or break a weight loss plateau, but it can also be a good guide for someone who’s starting maintenance mode after they’ve reached their weight loss goal. In today’s video I go over my opinion, plus also give the calorie ranges men and women should aim for to lose weight and also the calorie ranges they should be consuming to maintain their weight.

In today’s video I go over the three main reasons someone would soak nuts and seeds, when it’s most important to soak them, and if I personally soak the nuts & seeds I eat. I also do a video demo showing all the steps in soaking nuts & seeds, including how to store the nuts & seeds, and for how long. Below is also a written summary of the instructions on how to soak nuts & seeds.

How To Soak Nuts & Seeds - www.RadianceCentral.com
 
Directions on how to soak nuts/seeds (Almonds, Cashews, Pecans, Walnuts, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds):

1- Rinse the nuts/seeds
2- Put nuts/seeds in a glass bowl or jar and cover with water, plus a few extra inches/cm of water.
3- Leave uncovered, at room temperature to soak overnight (8-12 hours).
4- Rinse soaked nuts/seeds.
5- Can be stored in refrigerator for a few days, make sure to store in clean water in a sealed glass jar and change the water once or twice a day.
 
 
Directions on how to soak Chia Seeds:
Water measurements:
For every 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds used, use 1 Cup of water.

1- Place chia seeds and water in a glass bowl or jar.
2- Stir well to ensure the chia seeds and water are mixed thoroughly.
3- Leave uncovered, at room temperature to soak for at least 30 minutes or up to 8-12 hours (chia seeds absorb water and become gelatinous very quickly).

Every once in a while someone will tell me they’ve read such great information about coconut oil and ask if they should start taking it as a supplement, as in a few tablespoons a day? My response is “No, no, no!! (unless you want and need to be gaining weight and nothing else works!!).” Coconut oil is fine to cook and bake with, but I don’t believe in consuming extra quantities of it as a supplement. In today’s video I discuss why!

I recently did the video Can White Rice Be Part Of A Healthy Diet, Ep107, and some people posted questions about rice and heartburn. I actually have a few suggestion for those that get heartburn or acid reflux after eating rice or meals that have rice. Sometimes it’s the type of rice that causes the issues, other times it might be what you are eating rice with and/or at what time of day. In today’s video I go through all my suggestions including the one rice I feel is the easiest to digest, and which types of rice to stay away from!
