Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup Instant Pot/Stove Top — Frugal Hausfrau

So I was trying to think of the last time I made Soup. It was so long, I had to look it up! I made a White Chicken Chili that can be made in the Slow Cooker, Instant Pot or on the Stove in January, and it’s pretty soup-like but the last bone fide soup…

Google In The Gaming World?

OUKASnation

It’s reported that Google is thought to be launching a streaming service for games which could be announced next month at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).

In January Google tested its Project Stream initiative with a beta. Users could play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in Google Chrome, only needing an internet connection and a console controller.

And from the video above, the game doesn’t seem that bad compared to its console counterpart with a decent internet connection.

It also rumored Google has been discussing ‘Project Yeti’ (what the streaming service is rumored to be dubbed) with big game developers to see which games they can court from their respective libraries.

With GDC around the corner, this new streaming service could be anything! So it’s best to wait for confirmation at GDC next month!


Let me know what you guys think? Is Google starting the new wave for gaming in the future?…

How to Advance Your Plot with Careful Scene Design ~ 5 Steps – by C.S. Lakin…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

on Live Write Thrive:

Plotting is complex, and whether you “wing it” or plot extensively, there are 5 key steps that will help you stay on track when brainstorming a scene. I’m reprinting a blog post I wrote a few years back to bring attention to these basic steps all novelists should consider when putting a scene together.

Writing scenes can be daunting, but, as with all novel components, it just takes time and effort to learn how to become a master scene crafter. The first step is getting the big picture of a scene.

What do I mean by that? Instead of thinking about the minute details you want to put in a scene, you first want to step back and consider a few things.

What a simple, hearty and delicious soup this turned out to be. We love tortellini but I have never made soup with it before now. Usually I turn it into an Alfredo dish, but not this time! This recipe makes enough for an entire family!

3 Foods to Avoid if You Have Digestive Problems

 

 

People with a propensity toward digestive problems should refrain from eating “trigger” foods – foods that can cause a digestive response ranging from heartburn, to indigestion, abdominal pain and cramping, constipation or diarrhea. While each individual can come up with their own list of foods to avoid, there are three foods that are on most people’s lists:

 

Dairy

 

While eating milk and dairy products is a great way to get calcium, it can also cause diarrhea, gas, cramps and abdominal pain for those that are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerant happens when the body doesn’t produce enough of the enzyme lactase – the enzyme needed to break down the milk sugar lactose. People with Crohn’s disease, celiac disease or have undergone chemotherapy may become lactose intolerant due to damage caused in the intestines.

 

Most lactose intolerant can still eat yogurt and hard cheeses because these two dairy products do not contain lactose. And of course there is always lactose-free milk.

 

Spicy Foods

 

People with a sensitive stomach, irritable bowel syndrome or susceptible to chronic heartburn, should avoid spicy food. A digestive response from the capsaicin in peppers can range from indigestion to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

 

High Fat Foods

 

High fat foods include red meats, butter, creamy sauces, full-fat ice cream and fried foods. Because fat takes the longest to digest of all the macro-nutrients, it tends to stay in the digestive tract longer thus giving it more time to ferment and cause gas and bloating. People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) especially need to limit their intake of high fat/fatty foods.

 

High Fiber

 

While fiber is good for a digestive tract, too much of it too soon can cause digestive problems of its own… in the form of gas and bloating. The right amount of fiber is 25 to 30 grams per day; people eating considerably less than this amount should slowly up the amount they are eating, giving their body time to adjust between each increase.

 

Sometimes digestive problems can occur if the good bacteria in the digestive tract get overridden by the bad. To keep the “good guys” in control:

  • Avoid detoxes as they usually get rid of the good bacteria.
  • Don’t use antibiotics unless necessary as they kill off good bacteria.
  • Eat foods with probiotics like yogurts and soy milks as they help promote good bacteria.

 

By avoiding foods that are known to cause digestive problems and doing things to promote the growth of healthy bacteria, digestive issues should be avoided for the most part. Listen to your digestive tract and learn how it reacts to certain types of foods. Then set up your own list of things to avoid eating.

 

 

Test: Mercedes G-Class against Range Rover P400e – Auto & Mobil — Archy news nety

On paper, the Range Rover P400e is all that the Mercedes G-Class is not: modern and economical. But the test shows: In reality, the hybrid SUV is just as a gas guzzler. Edgy, archaic, those are the first terms that come to mind when you see the Mercedes G-Class in the parking garage enthroned. A…

Are You Using Publishing Industry Standards?

How To Ebook

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”~Stephen Hawking

Standards. Every industry is governed by standards. These are a set of criteria within an industry that defines the standard functioning and carrying out of operations.

The publishing industry has standards. Anyone involved in publishing and selling books should be aware of these standards.

Sadly, many independent authors don’t take the time to educate themselves on publishing industry standards. This lack of knowledge often becomes apparent when these authors interact with others in the industry. Then, these authors’ ignorance reflects poorly on themselves and their books.
