Took a total of 7 weeks to make this 2 minute video.  Let me know what you think!

At the pool today, relaxing and on track. Ground turkey, yam, broccoli. No one at the pool because I love amongst the elderly. They’re too busy hiding from the sun to take advantage of the neighborhood amenities. 👌⛅️☀️⛅️☀️⛅️☀️ #almostsummer #foodporn #fitfood #fitfam #eatclean #cleaneats #healthy #healthyfood #healthycarbs #healthyhabits #losingweight #mealprep #protein #progress

Chickens on an unsupplemented vegetarian diet typically fall short of an essential protein-based amino acid known as methionine, and without it, they fall ill. Worse, the birds will also turn on each other, pecking at each other in search of nutrients, and these incidents can escalate into a henhouse bloodbath, farmers say.

If you’re new here, you’ll realize I’m obsessed with pancakes. And I mean, rightfully so. Just look at them. Pancakes are a gorgeous creature. Today I made peanut butter ones with a little special something!

Peanut Butter Coconutter Protein Scandinavian Pancakes:

½ cup flour
1 tsp vanilla cupcake Coconutter Sweet Spreads, microwaved for 30 seconds
1 scoop of Quest peanut butter protein powder
1 tsp agave
About a cup of milk (I use almond milk). Pour until the right consistency.

Mix all ingredients together. Don’t worry about overmixing. Pour the batter onto a pan/griddle on low-medium heat. Either take a spoon and spread around the poured batter to get them thinner or shake the pan. You’ll need to take a peak under these to check to see if they’re done, or flip when you see bubbles. Once they’re done, take them out of the pan and roll them. They will be VERY hot so be careful of your little fingers! If you want to wait to roll them, stack them up so they stay soft.

This protein lets ‘threads’ build memories

Every time you make a memory, somewhere in your brain a tiny filament reaches out from one neuron and forms an electrochemical connection to a neighboring neuron.

The filaments that make these new connections are called dendritic spines and, in a series of experiments described in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, a team of researchers reports that a specific signaling protein, Asef2, a member of a family of proteins that regulate cell migration and adhesion, plays a critical role in spine formation.

This is significant because Asef2 has been linked to autism and the co-occurrence of alcohol dependency and depression.
