A Healthy Way to Begin the Day
Starting the day with a balanced, great-tasting breakfast can put you on the fast track to good nutrition and better overall health. While many kids and adults forget this important first meal, research has shown that a nutritious breakfast at the beginning of the day can decrease the risk of obesity, heart disease, and other nutritionally related conditions in kids and adults. Kids who eat breakfast:
Are more alert in school, with better concentration, memory and grades
Get more fiber, calcium, vitamins A and C, riboflavin, zinc, and iron to help build stronger bodies
Have more energy to pursue healthy and active lifestyles
Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars help busy families on the go satisfy the nutritional requirements of breakfast in a quick and easy format that can be eaten at the table--or--as life demands, on the road.
Start Out on the Right Foot: Studies have shown that when you make the right snack choices at the beginning of the day, you are more likely to make good snack decisions the rest of the day. Eating a Nutri-Grain Bar as a mid-morning snack provides four-times more whole grains than traditional morning snacks.
Take Control of Your Portions: Regular snacking helps prevent over-eating at mealtime and provides children with needed energy to keep their brains and bodies going throughout the day. In fact, up to 25 percent of the average American's calories come from snacking between meals. In order to eat snacks and treats in a healthful way, it is essential to pay attention to portion size. Individually wrapped Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars provide a nutritious snack that will also satisfy your sweet tooth in one 120-calorie serving. Easy to pop into a lunchbox, a backpack or purse, Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars provide a great option for nutritious eating on the go.
A Snack Everyone Can Agree On: Arguing with kids over the snacks they take to school is second only to arguing over bedtimes. Parents push for nutritious snacks while kids want something sweet. Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars offer the nutrition parents require with the taste that children will love--thanks to the soft, golden crust and sweet, fruit filling.
Whole Grain Goodness
More people are becoming aware of the benefits of eating whole grains. Still, most people don't get enough whole grains and up to 80 percent of us are not consuming levels of whole grains recommended by the FDA. Each Nutri-Grain Cereal Bar contains half of a serving (eight grams) of the recommended three servings or more of whole grains people need each day--in a low-calorie and low fat package. Whole grains never tasted this good!
Eaten on the run, at the table, as a snack, breakfast, or treat--Nutri-Grain Cereal Bars are a fast and versatile way to ensure that you and your family get the daily nutrition you need.

A new Queen rules the waves
A new Queen to rule the waves By Julie Cramer BBC News Online, on board the QM2 Once the cutting edge of cruise ship design, the celebrated QE2 is having to make way for a more voluptuous younger sister. Cunard has made no secret of the fact that the ?550m Queen Mary 2 - its first major liner for more than three decades - is the tallest, longest, widest, heaviest and most expensive passenger ship yet built. The QM2 is as tall as a 23-storey building On Thursday champagne corks will be popping as the Queen names the vessel - as she did in 1967 for the QE2 - before its inaugural voyage on 12 January. I visited on the day of the vessel's very last sea trial - a so-called "shake-out" - before she begins to plough the proposed 30 transatlantic crossings per year. For someone whose experience of seafaring only extends to the Dover-Calais ferry, it is hard not to be charmed by her looks. Red, white and blue Stationed next to the dreary concrete terminal in Southampton docks - her home port - she looks particularly brand new. Passengers will probably clock up several miles a day as they explore the ship The length of her sleek navy blue underbelly stretches 345m - five times longer than Cunard's first ship, the Britannia. There is layer upon layer of gleaming white decks - space for 2,620 passengers and private balconies in three-quarters of the cabins. Her bright red funnel takes her height up to 72m - as tall as a 23-storey building. Inside the ship is awash with relatives of Cunard employees, invited on board for the final test run. Prices for a six-day sail start from a not unreasonable ?999, rocketing to almost ?20,000 for the vast duplex apartments if you can't live without a private butler. There's no lack of entertainment on board - theatre, cinema, casino, five pools, art gallery with ?3m worth of works - even an education programme devised by Oxford University. QM2 NAUTICAL FACTS She is as long as 41 double decker buses Her whistle will be audible for 10 miles There's almost one crew member for every two passengers A single joystick on the bridge manoeuvres her sideways Her plant power room could light the whole of Southampton In her 40-year lifetime she will travel the equivalent of 12 times to the moon and back The Cunard invitees are like over-excited children let loose in a toy store. Sheila Connolly from Glasgow, whose son is a Cunard yacht captain, has already spent four days on board with friend Fiona Millar. "We're still getting lost - there's so much to explore. And the rock opera we saw in the theatre last night was as good as any in the West End," she enthuses. There's gourmet food in abundance - in the 15 restaurants and bars - but also low calorie options to control expanding girths. Smoking is banned from the eating spaces - a move reportedly out of favour with some cigar-puffing Cunard regulars. Lavish interiors Some have likened the QM2's interior to something more suited to the Las Vegas strip. It is glitzy - chock a block with big chandeliers, brass banisters, bare-breasted statuettes and artificial foliage. But there are classic touches - mirrored Art Deco lifts, wide sweeping walkways, and a curvaceous double staircase reminiscent of the Titanic movie set. To calm your senses you could always visit the Canyon Ranch spa - the biggest ever on a cruise ship. Here you can get a Thai massage in one of the 24 treatment rooms - from a real Thai master no less. Walking the ship's elegant promenades three times will clock up 1.1 miles - you could run a marathon if you felt that way inclined. Some elements of the ship - like the first ever floating planetarium - frankly seem unnecessary. Surely a view of the stars from the ship's lookout, on a cool clear night mid-Atlantic, would be infinitely better than anything that comes out of an entertainment studio. However some elements of the ship's "edutainment" programme have been well done. A trail of wall panels around the ship chart the company's century and a half of seafaring, back to when Samuel Cunard commissioned his first four liners in Clydebank in the 1840s. Crews of days gone by gaze out of sepia photos - curly moustached captains, donkeymen from the engine rooms, lamp trimmers who kept oil lamps burning round the clock. A nice link with the past is the ship's whistle - taken from its predecessor, the first Queen Mary, now a tourist attraction moored off Long Beach, California. The question remains, can Cunard routinely fill the expansive QM2 without stealing customers from its other big ships? Next generation Recent figures offer an optimistic prognosis for ocean-going in the 21st century. A report from the Passenger Shipping Association declared 2003 "a year of extraordinary growth" with the number of Britons taking ocean cruises touching a million for the first time. There will always be the serial cruisers - nMonday, 13th July 2009
Breakfast: two Special K bars Lunch: childs portion of saveloy & chips (from the chippy opposite the gym, because I was hungry and hadn't packed a lunch) Snack: Optifit pineapple dessert Dinner: half an M&S Gastropub steak and mushroom pie, cabbage, and potato and kumara (sweet potato) mash Supper: strawberries and half a banana muffin (I didn't eat the front bit) to which Brunos mummy said I'm impressed with your restraint! I've noticed you often do this (put food on your plate you then leave a bit of it)... it makes me wonder if you're into 'conscious eating'? From what I've read, that's all about being aware of when you're full and don't need any more, so you stop. Very useful technique :) And I replied: It is conscous eating and it is a useful technique and is the one that Paul McKenna uses in his 'I can make you thin' book /CD /tv show. It's also the theory (such as it is) behind my 'photo-dieting' - that you are conscious of the fact that you are about to eat because you snap it, and that you are consious of how mush / what you ate in a day / week because you can see it. In this case I gave the front piece to Rik before I even started eating. I need to be more concious of what I'm likely to eat before I put it on my plate! ---------- Optifit dessert: Brunosmummy said: So, are these really good? What is it that's so nice about them? I've not tried them (mainly as they are double the calories of a mullerlight, which I think are lovely anyway). However they ARE cheaper... so, does double the calories make it double the deliciousness? I myself am hooked on mango and peach flavours of Lasting Satisfaction yoghurts which are only 75 each and are DELICIOUS, fruity and creamy and satisfying. No other yoghurt does it for me, now! Is optifit thick and creamy too? To which I replied: They are very delicious, and very filling. A 200g pot is usually too much for me so I often (or used to when I was buying them before and using them in packed lunch) put half in a small round lock'n'lock (the 100ml size - perfect fit) and make one tub last two days. Particularly nice if extra fruit is put in it. There is quite a good fruit content in them (12% blueberries in the blueberry one). It's made with yoghurt and cream - the cream being where the extra calories (and fat) come from. A few months ago I heard something on The Food Programme on Radio 4 about hydrogenated fats (which are bad for you) and they mentioned - well I forget the exact descriptions - cream substitute type thing is made from it. Although they mentioned no names the only thinkg I could think of was Elmlea and Elmlea Light which we used to have on summer puddings, strawberries, etc as it is lower calorie & fat than cream. So next tme I was in a supermarket I looked at the ingredients (rather than just the nutritional info box) and was shocked to find it fullof the stuff. I figured it was better for my health to have a small amount of real cream than the Elmlea stuff. So I don't mind having the calories from the Optifit as it is made of yoghurt and cream and fruit. I try to keep it within my daily limits and have lost 3lbs in teh last two weeks so it can't be too bad!
