PARSLEY TO CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS

Just received this information from my Yahoo Inbox. A forwarded message from a good friend and just want to share here.


CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS: Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments. How are we going to do this? It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley and wash it clean Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool. Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination. Also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before. Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

The Americans have such a huge influence over us Filipinos that even our preference for food is somehow swayed by them. Like, we do like it big. And not just big – incredibly big; as in, supersized servings and helpings of whatever we shovel into our mouths.
Figure-conscious Heart Evangelista gasps as Executive Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro presents to her his OVERSIZED BURGER – 12-inch high, 10-inch wide with two 1-inch thick patties! Yes, this young actress is able to nibble on just a fraction of this humongous treat; but those naturally endowed with a big appetite should have no trouble demolishing this amazing culinary creation.
The secret to Executive Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro’s JUMBO CHICKEN EMPANADA is to constantly dust the dough with flour as it is being kneaded to perfection to ensure that no natural chicken fluids leak out during the baking. Indeed, this 10-inch long and 4-inch wide delicacy is so succulent the juices drip out when your teeth sink into its thick goodness.
Futomaki is a staple in every Japanese meal; and the Filipino palate has accepted it as a special way to eat rice. Here comes Executive Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro with his HIGANTENG FUTOMAKI. Heart Evangelista is totally floored by it! Meanwhile, we learn that the secret to perfect futomaki is in the cooking of the rice. It must be firm to the bite, al dente as the Italians say it; and the grains should not cling to each other so that the uniquely Japanese flavor of the vinegar seeps in evenly.

Judy Ann Santos diet revealed- Cohen Diet

What is Cohen diet? In a span of four months, teleserye queen, Judy Ann Santos lose almost 27 lbs. according to her. Judy Ann's secret is healthy living and the fad now, Cohen diet.
"Gusto mo nang bumalik sa dati mong itsura, makapagdamit ng maayos. And at the same time bilang asawa di ba? you owe it also to your partner to look good." Judy Ann said as the reason for her wanting to be fit again.
The word Cohen was derived from the name of the Doctor who implemented Cohen diet.

Dr. Cohen is dedicated to making each of us real pros in nutrition. His method is a combination of two points:

-a balanced diet, respecting the eating needs of people. To do this, three criteria must be met: eathealthy food, respect the pleasure of eating and its conviviality.

-The doctor insists on the challenge represented by the long term diet, as a result, he tries to find solutions to deal with it

Specifically, how can you lose weight with the diet Cohen?

Almost all kinds of food are allowed, but in small volume. The goal is to reduce caloric intake. This plan emphasizes on the consumption of fruits and vegetables, either raw or cooked. Practically you can eat as much as you want. And because you eat fiber, you will feel full after the meals.

In addition to that, it is important that you exercise. If you want to go on a diet over the long term, why not follow the 1600 calorie diet, as long as you want?

How does the Cohen diet work ?

The regime Cohen is not a diet like others, is primarily a food combination to lose weight, but do not forget that it's more a lifestyle to adopt.

It consists of two stages.

The first gives results in the short term, a "boost" that will allow you to lose a maximum of pounds in a short time (up to 10 pounds in one month).

The second phase is to install your new eating habits for the long term.

Two principles :

-Everything is allowed (in order not to cause frustration), but of course in reduced quantity. Mandatory food and "fun" food should each have their place in your meals.

-You are authorized to make some adjustements only if you replace one type of food by another, for example, if you drink a glass of wine, you should not eat fruits (the glass of wine will replace the fruit).
Strengths and weaknesses of this diet :

A wide range of food is allowed (plus vegetables and fruits at will). In addition, it provides a great flexibility, you can juggle with programs ranging from 600-1600 calories per day.

But like any system there are some downside. Programs between 600 calorie and 900 calorie can be tiring for people following them, because fewer calories means less nutritional value.

Besides, if you dont like to cook, this regime is not for you as it often takes a long time to prepare the recipes of the Cohen Diet .

Example of menu :

Breakfast:

Tea or coffee + 30 g of cereals, corn flakes type + 1 cup of skim milk

Lunch :

½ grapefruit without sugar + 175 g cod fillets, lemon and 200g of julienned vegetables + 1 yogurt 0% fat and 1 fruit

Dinner :

150 g of heart of palm salad + 100 g of turkey cutlets and 200 g chard ribs + 25 g cheese at least 50% fat and a fruit compote

For those who prefer ready to eat / packaged diet, you could try either slim fast or nutrisystem.

From the Cohen Diet to International diet plans

Analysts were expecting profit of $1.28 per share on revenue of $6.6 billion.

Operating income grew 34% in the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa segment, led by strong sales in China.

Robust performance in France, the U.K. and Russia led to a 24% increase in Europe (19% excluding currency impacts), and in the U.S. operating income grew 6%. New items like the strawberry lemonade and fruit andmaple oatmeal were among the most successful in terms of domestic sales, the company said, along with McDonald's core products, the Big Mac andthe Chicken McNugget.

Watch Idol sa Kusina July 17, 2011 episode.


"The slim silhouette of "In the Limelight" actress Rhian Ramos gets its biggest challenge when the young star guests in Idol sa Kusina and Chef Pablo "Boy" Logro enthralls her with food so delectable she can't help but indulge herself to the max and seriously forget her diet plan, if only for a while.

It's Spanish cuisine which spins off with PAELLA VALENCIANA. The way Chef Pablo "Boy" Logro does it, the dish is so rich it overwhelms way beyond any food lover's expectations. Yes, this is a complete meal - with chicken, pork, assorted seafoods and saffron. And the glutinous rice used is Calrose, which is not only tender but also quite aromatic.

Following closely is GAMBAS AL AJILLO, which tickles pink and crimson Rhian's huge appetite for the hot and spicy. She swears her heart sings as she sinks her teeth on every delicate morsel of the prawn; and she demolishes it all with a smack.

BEEF SALPICADO Y PICANTE, as its name suggests, seethes with considerably hotness - which sends Rhian to the seventh gastronomic heaven. Yes, the spicier it gets, the hotter she goes. And this goesjust fine with Chef Pablo "Boy" Logro who loves a hearty eater."
