The taste and pleasure we derive from eating is linked to our visual senses. In other words, the more visually appealing the meal, the more satisfying the experience. One way to add beauty and elegance, but not calories to our meals, is to slice, dice, toss, chop or stuff food with edible flowers.
Edible flowers first came onto the scene around 140 BC. They were used to heighten the flavor and add to the texture of foods when spices were not available.
Edible flowers turn the simplest of meals into a special occasion. Add flowers to your soups and salads, float them in your punch bowl or freeze them in ice cubes. Cook with them.
You can purchase edible flowers in the produce section at the (gourmet) grocery store. Or, you can grow your own. (A fun activity which gets you out of the kitchen!) For the best flavor, pick flowers when they are beginning to open, in the cool of the morning. Be sure to remove the pistils and stamens. Gently wash and dry them on a paper towel. Eat only the petals. Remember, not all flowers are edible – some are poisonous. If in doubt – please, leave it out!
Here is a partial list of Incredible Edibles. Many are common flowers that may be growing in your garden right now!

nasturtiums * roses * marigolds * viola * pansies * apple blossoms * calendulas * carnations * honeysuckle * tulip petals * tuberous begonia * lilacs * dianthus * hibiscus * violets * day lily * primrose * petunia

The Alien Made Me Eat It!

Our Lady of Weight Loss Alien.jpgAlien or Addict? by Janice Taylor Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist and 50-pound-big-time-loser. (Write Janice for a Free Consult).
I received the following E-emergency note the other night from a client of mine – who by the way – has permanently removed 18 pounds in the past 12 weeks.
I thought it worth sharing, because I know that we all have ‘alien’ voices in our heads that ‘make’ us eat the donut, cookie, ice cream, pizza. That’s right … you are not alone. Seems we all have an alien voice that ‘makes’ us go hog wild.
Janice!! HELP! There is some alien in my body trying to tell me I want cookies, ice cream, candy. Make it stop!! ~ Love, Joy
Dear Alien … Joy promised herself that she would NOT eat JUNK food today. A simple promise.
If she gives into JUNK, she will feel bad. She will feel a kind of loss. Thing is once one sets a goal or promises themselves something, their brains believe it to already be so. So, on the deepest levels Joy’s brain believes that she already let go of JUNK. As you can imagine, if she now has some, she will feel just awful. She will feel loss.
Now, I’m guessing – Ms. or Mr. Alien – that neither one of us want Joy to feel bad. Do we? We want her to be happy. Right? We want Joy to be joyful!
I know it’s tough for you, Alien. You’re voice has been heard, loud and clear, for a long time. We respect your power. We (Joy and I) are going to take some time together and see if we can’t find you another job. Something else for you to be in charge of. If you, Alien, have any helpful thoughts on what you might ‘man’ for Joy, let us know.
That’s right – Alien – you can help Joy focus on something positive. Yes, you can!
Joy deserves to have a happy and healthy life. Junk won’t do it. So, Alien, again, we welcome your helpful and useful suggestions. Love, Janice
My response to Joy’s email, FYI … helped her enormously. Not only did she smile – even laugh – she got into it. She’s busy creating new and useful inner-positive-conversations, as she not only permanently removes her excess weight – but as she changes her belief systems and thinking. Cheers and Kudos to JOY!! You Rock, Joy!
Now, I’d like to ask YOUR inner-Alien … “Alien to my Beliefnet friends and Kick in the Tush Club members and all those out there who happened to stumble across my blog, How might you create a new position for yourself? You sure are powerful, smart, clever and have a strong voice that we all hear. You can still be an Alien. We don’t want to take anything away from you or make you go away. We just want to live in a more harmonious inner-house with you.”
Please … do let us know … me and Joy – what your Alien is up to and what your inner-conversation with your alien looks like!
Spread the word, NOT the icing,
Janice

Lose Weight: The Fat Gene Diet

fat gene artDo NOT Accept Delivery of Your Ancestors ‘Fat Genes’ by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound big-time-loser. (write Janice for free consult)
It is a w i d e l y held belief within my family of origin that all us women are ‘naturally fat.’
I get a giggle from that, don’t you? So much energy expended on wishing to be ‘naturally thin,’ when the ‘naturally fat’ gene was implanted, like a computer chip, before I was born.
The Taylor ‘Fat Gene’ Theory has been passed down from generation to generation. It was seemingly predetermined. And, as a member of this illustrious group, I complied. As you know (or may not know), I was born fat – the only baby in the hospital nursery to gain weight.
So why would someone like me, or you, who has this deeply rooted belief about themselves, whether passed down from mother to daughter, or father to son, or mother to son, or father to daughter … generation after generation, or a relatively new self-imposed belief that you are ‘naturally fat,’ even try to lose weight?

Our Lady of Weight Loss Invites You to
Refuse Delivery of the Family Fat Genes


Take in a deep breath and let it go … on the exhale, see this negative belief float out the sides of you with the fall of your chest or stomach (note where your exhale is coming from), hear it gurgle, buzz, or even clink or clank its way from the inside to the outside, feel the possibilities and know that you now have a clear path to dream. Do NOT accept delivery of your ancestors’ ‘fat genes.’
Take stock of the various ideas, dreams and visions that are buried within. Be willing to invest in your dreams and yourself.
Have faith in yourself. Trust your instincts.
Question your beliefs that stand in your way of your ability to fully commit to yourself.
Own your power; claim what’s yours!
Spread the word, NOT the icing!
