Clutching onto this @justins peanut butter cup for life🙈 Drizzled with my new fav @crazyrichardspb single ingredient peanut butter 💃🏻 For all those Reese's lovers this is a healthier alternative to a chocolatey peanut butter treat🍫 .
So recently I've been experiencing a huge lack of motivation/ self doubt. I personally like having a filled schedule. If I'm not constantly being stimulated or productive with myself I feel some sort of guilt. Yes, I understand I'm probably too hard on myself and need to work on that. However, it is literally driving me out of my mind that I cannot find the motivation to be productive. It's a struggle to think creatively and I'm even having a hard time just writing this when writing used to be something that was easy and fun for me. So I want to know if this has happened to anyone else and what helps to get that creative flow of thinking and motivation back. The flow is gone and it's scaring me!!!! Lol help! 💁🏻🙋🏻

Take a moment to appreciate the fact that you actually have food on your plate. We're so familiar with this situation that we forget that for many people in the world, this just isn't the case.
Let me just drop this here before you think I am biased because I loooovvvveee rice

🤔The verdict has already been in for quite some time. Brown rice is the clean/healthy/good one, and white rice is dirty/unhealthy/bad one, right? Not so fast.
🍚Now its true White rice has a higher GI value than brown rice. Most people know this, and it’s typically the first reason given for why brown rice is the better choice. Brown rice definitely has an advantage over white in terms of GI.
☝️The GI value of a food is determined when it’s eaten in isolation after an overnight fast. As in, this is how this food will affect your blood sugar when it’s the FIRST and ONLY thing you’re eating after a full night of not eating anything.
❌And this is the point where the glycemic index becomes borderline useless as a means of determining if a food is “good” and “bad.” There’s two reasons why..
❓Are most people ating after an overnight fast? Probably not.
Are most people eating in isolation? Probably not.
🚫The much bigger issue here is the fact that, in the real world, the average person is unlikely to eat these foods in isolation. Meaning, the average person won’t sit down to a big plate of white rice and nothing else (yet this is the scenario the glycemic index is based on).
🤦♂️Why does this matter? Because when other stuff is eaten along with it like it usually is, it changes everything. It’s now less about each food in the meal and more about the overall meal itself.
👉And, the protein, fat, fiber, etc. in those other foods will greatly reduce the glycemic index/speed of digestion of the entire meal to the point where there will be no meaningful difference between whether white rice or brown rice was a part of it.
✅So which one is better? It’s a tie really, and that tie is likely best broken based on your own personal needs and preferences. They both have their benefits, they both have nutrients. And as you can see, white rice actually contains LESS calories.
🙏The rest doesn’t matter. Eat the one you like best and/or have less issues with eating. If that’s brown rice, cool. And if its white rice, great.
Locust beans aka iru is a good source of minerals and vitamins which include calcium and vitamin A essential for good and keen sight.
Also plays a role in keeping cholesterol and blood sugar stable. Any wonder our forefathers did not suffer a lot of these illnesses we have today. Their meals were also ‘extra-finger-licking-good’.
Looking for that extra flavour in your soups and stews, use this instead of MSG and lots of salt.
Now I’m thinking of ayamase lol.
Whats your favourite local seasoning/spice? For me it has always been a combi of uziza-ehu and sometimes nchuanwu.
