KL'S BLACK-BERRY POWERFUL SMOOTHIE

This Saturday I'll be on the go early and on my feet all day so I wanted to make a quick & healthy breakfast smoothie since I slept in a bit longer instead of my usual morning workout!


Here's all I put together:
1 cup of 100% 'Not From Concentrate' Orange Juice
1 cup of fresh Blackberries
2 squeezed Key Limes (juice & seeds)
1 teaspoon of 100% Grade B Maple Syrup
1 Blender
1 Motivational Song (optional, but highly recommended, haha!)



Pour the OJ first into blender then follow up with all of the other ingredients. Blend on high for about one minute, or until it is a puree (as blackberry seeds are very small), pour into a tall glass and...BOOM---YOU'RE DONE!!
That's FAST and HEALTHY =]

GRILLED FISH & SPAGHETTI

Fish & Spaghetti is a St. Louis favorite but this meal in particular has a fast & healthy spin to it!
The fish I chose is wild caught salmon; and the spaghetti pasta is 100% whole grain spelt---WoOoO!
I seasoned & grilled the salmon instead of frying; which is faster, healthier, and it tastes great too!
Here's the play:
For the spelt pasta recipe:
Check out my "100% Whole Grain Spelt Spaghetti" blog post (11/2/2011)

Grilled Salmon:
Start by pre-heating your grilling machine for 5 minutes prior to placing your fresh salmon onto it.

Season salmon with: virgin olive oil (on both sides), then season the top side with ceyanne pepper, basil, onion powder, and pink sea salt.
Place on pre-heated grill & cook until the salmon flakes easily (usually 5 minutes---do not overcook) but still juicy.
Try adding fresh grilled veggies to the mix (green, red & yellow bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc. tossed in olive oil and put on the grill for 3 minutes)
Enjoy!


HEAVY D IS DEAD AT 44

I too often talk about FAST LIVING; this story just in from Gene Demby in regards to one of the most successful rappers of the 1990's, Heavy D! Read on...
Dwight Arrington Myers Rushed To Hospital, Pronounced Dead
(Story by Gene Demby)
Heavy D, the rapper whose real name is Dwight Arrington Myers, is dead at the young age of 44, according to TMZ. Heavy D was the heavyset rapper and actor known for his dancing and tongue-twisting rhymes.
TMZ is reporting that a "911 call was placed from Heavy's Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway." He was rushed to the hospital this afternoon and pronounced dead around 1:00 p.m. The police said there are no suspicions of foul play.
Heavy D's death comes almost a month after a comeback performance at the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards, when he performed a medley of his best-known singles, among them "Nuttin' But Love," "Is It Good to You" and "Now That We Found Love."
He tweeted last night "BE INSPIRED!"
Heavy D was born in Jamaica, and moved to Mt. Vernon, NY, when he was a child. Heavy D & The Boyz, the group which he fronted, was the first act signed to Uptown Records, the record company started by Andre Harrell.
"I remember getting him to work with then-choreographer Rosie Perez and him looking at me, like, 'Should we really do this?'," Harrell told Essence. "And I said, 'a big man dancing is going to be really fun for people. It's gonna make them love you.'"
The group enjoyed widespread fame in the early 1990s, and scored prominent cameos on hit songs with Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson. Heavy D also appeared on the theme song for the popular sketch comedy show "In Living Color."
But tragedy befell the group at the beginning of its commercial success. Troy Dixon, known as Trouble T Roy, died in an accident at a show. His death was the inspiration for Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," which is widely considered one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time.
This is a developing story and we will update this posts with more developments on Heavy D's reported death.

QUALIFIED RETIREMENT PLAN (QRP)

If you LIVE FAST, you must LIVE SMART! Why work until you're 65 years of age to start enjoying life or barely make ends meet while retired? Consider a Qualified Retirement Plan (or QRP).
What Does Qualified Retirement Plan Mean? A plan that meets requirements of the Internal Revenue Code and as a result, is eligible to receive certain tax benefits. These plans must be for the exclusive benefit of employees or their beneficiaries (great plan for the self-employed & family businesses).
A retirement plan established by employers for their employees that meets the requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a) or 403(a) and is eligible for special tax considerations. The plan may provide for employer contributions, as in a pension or profit-sharing plan, as well as employee contributions. Employers can deduct plan contributions made on behalf of eligible employees on the business's tax return as business expenses. Plan earnings are not taxed to the employee until withdrawn.
Do your research and see if its worth investing into for you and your family!

"FAST FOOD", FAST DEATH!

A body given enough foreign chemicals, shuts down; it dies. Dying is preventable for a long time... Continue to be healthy!
That is all. Now carry on with your day!
