17 delicious keto Instant Pot recipes

first_imgJosh Miller/CNET If you find yourself in a conversation about health, weight loss or nutrition, you’re likely to hear at least one person say “keto.” Keto is the colloquial nickname for the ketogenic diet, which involves cutting out virtually all carbohydrates — and replacing those calories with fat — in an attempt to push your body into ketosis. When your body reaches ketosis, it burns fat as fuel instead of carbohydrates. Many people use keto as a way to lose weight, lower blood sugar and promote overall health. While the diet is pretty restrictive, there’s no shortage of evidence-based claims that support it. Cutting carbs isn’t the best approach for everyone, but if you’ve found success on keto or are looking to try it, you can ramp up your keto meal plan with these 17 keto Instant Pot recipes.  Read more 0 Keto Instant Pot breakfast recipesOn keto, gone are the days of slurping sugary milk after eating a bowl of Frosted Flakes.

Are you tired of restless tossing and turning during sleep time? Do you wake up feeling tired in the morning? Try these simple tips to get a perfect good night’s sleep. Listen to bedtime stories, millennial style: Remember those good old days when you enjoyed listening to grandma’s bedtime stories?

Look for a mattress that provide complete spine support and are designed keeping ergonomics in mind. Enjoy the compressed relaxation that the memory foam offers.Block all blue light screens before bedtime: It’s imperative to create a calming ambience in your room to get the best quality of sleep.

Place lemons in your room: If you are prone to allergies or suffer from asthma or cold and find it difficult to catch good sleep, then simply cut a lemon and place it next to your bedside table. This will not only leave a fresh citrus scent in your room but will also help you breathe better and sleep well.IANSlast_img read more

James Bonds Next Aston Martin Might be Electric

first_imgMarch 19, 2019 Enroll Now for Free This story originally appeared on Engadget 2 min read James Bond movies tend to be a reflection of the cultural zeitgeist, and that might be reflected in his choice of whip next time around. The Sun sources have claimed that the director of the next Bond movie, Cary Joji Fukanaga, wants 007 to drive Aston Martin’s electric Rapide E (above) instead of one of its gas-powered coupes. It may seem like blasphemy for Bond’s flashiest vehicle to be a sedan, but Fukanaga, lead actor Daniel Craig and the producers reportedly believed “the time was right” for the secret agent to use an emissions-free ride.There’s no guarantee this will happen. If it does, though, it’ll represent a milestone for the spy thriller series as the first actual environmentally-friendly Bond car. While the agent was supposed to be driving a hydrogen fuel cell Ford Edge in Quantum of Solace, that was just a conventional model gussied up as the then-unavailable Edge HySeries. Here, Bond could drive the real deal.It’d be up to the job, too. The Rapide E’s dual motors will make it getaway-ready with the equivalent output of 602 horsepower and a top speed of 155 mph, and it should stay cool enough at speed to last for a entire chase scene. Let’s just hope Bond doesn’t need to drive too far. The Rapide E does have an estimated 200-mile-plus range and a very fast charging system, but it wouldn’t be much fun to watch Bond twiddling his thumbs at a charging station. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
