NO CRUSTY FEET!! LOLOL!!

Get it right ladies!! Summer is approaching.....

Listerine: the BEST way to get your feet ready for summer. Sounds crazy but it works! Mix 1/4c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4c vinegar and 1/2c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!
Hello New Friends, I Wanted to take a minute to welcome you all to Jenz Skinny Friendz and let you know our purpose and goal. 1. First and foremost to help you become healthy! Your first step to doing that is to cut out all soda and artificial sweetened products. Start to eat healthy. No more fast food! I know these things may be difficult to do but it is the main reason most of us got this way in the first place. Replace all sodas with Water. Whether it is just plain water or some of the recipes I have posted ... 2. To help motivate you lose weight, this is my 2nd goal. I have started with a Starter Exercise program, it is important to start to exercise and move.. I know this may be hard for some because of some health issues, but this is what we are here for to help you come up with other ways/methods to help you lose weight. ♥ 3. Maintain your health and weight. So we are here for the long haul to keep you motivated and on the right track. Always come back to us for motivation and support and know there is NO judging here if you fall off the wagon. :) 4. To let you know about Skinny Fiber (All-Natural). It is not necessary to try this product in order to stay in the group, but after being in this company for the last few months and watching thousands of people's lives being changed including my own and several of my family members. I want to share this with everyone. Remember: It isn't necessary to use this at all to stay here in this group. So In short the first steps to getting healthy and losing weight: Detox all the toxins out of your body.. Replace any soda or sweetened beverages with water.. Start to exercise.. We're starting with a Starters program and if you are new to the group, go to the Albums and start with Day 1 (commenting that you have done them as you go) Ask questions or ask for help if you need motivation.
Wow!! Look at Zandie's 90 Day challenge results!!! www.tryskinnyfiber.ca
Here is Torri's Story in her own words:

"I remember last summer I was ashamed and miserable. Everything in my life was suffering from my health to my marriage. I was heavy, depressed and just did not like to even look at myself. I knew I ...
needed to lose weight but had tried everything! Nothing worked! My friend Leah asked me to try skinny Fiber and I was skeptical because I cannot handle the jitters and side effects other diet aids give me. She assured me that SF was not like that. so since it had a money back guarantee I tried it! I was amazed!!!!! In the first month I could tell a difference. Not jaw dropping but it was enough to make me realize it worked. Then I noticed more energy, better sleep, and just over all mood change. No more depression, fatigue or mood swings. I just kept dropping the inches. I was a size 16 now I am an 11! I am as happy as can be. I know I will never be that size 2 girl again but I have had three children, am 43 years old and I am happy with the results I am getting! No more anxiety meds either. Only SF! I started SF January 4th 2013 and now look at me!!"

HEART ATTACKS & HOT WATER!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE!!! READ IT and SHARE!! #REALTALK!

A very good article which takes two minutes to read. Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm ...water after your meal, but about Heart Attacks. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack...

A serious note about heart attacks - You! should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive..

A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this post shares it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this & Send to a friend. It could save a life... So, please be a true friend and share this article to all your friends you care about..

How to make homemade hand scrub




How to Make Homemade Hand Scrub

Ingredients:
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey
1/4 cup sea salt
... 1/4 cup organic sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions:
1. Stir together the honey and coconut oil in a medium bowl.
2. In another small bowl, blend the salt, sugar and lemon juice until it becomes crumbly.
3. Pour the salt mixture over the honey mixture and stir until smooth.
4. Store in a small glass jar or bowl.

Directions for Use:
1. Gently massage a marble-sized amount of homemade hand scrub into your hands for 30-60 seconds. (Don’t forget to exfoliate between your fingers!)
2. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. The coconut oil provides enough moisture so you probably won’t need to follow up with anything else. If your hands are extra dry, you might want to apply some homemade whipped coconut oil.
3. Repeat 1-2 times per week.


CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE CUPS

6 Magical Peanut Butter Cookies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1 egg
...
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
6 paper cupcake liners

Glaze:
4 ounces MiniCarb chocolate chips, generous 1/2 cup
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Place the cupcake liners in a muffin tin. Place 1 cookie in the bottom of each cup and press firmly to form a crust. The cookies will crumble very easily with your fingers. In a small bowl, beat the next 5 ingredients with an electric mixer just until well combined. Divide batter between the muffin cups. Bake at 350º 20 minutes. They will puff up quite high, but will settle as they cool. Cool on a rack until you can remove them from the muffin tin. Place them on a baking sheet and freeze 1 hour before spreading with the glaze.

For the glaze, place the chocolate chips and butter in a small glass bowl and microwave on 50% power 1-2 minutes or until melted, stirring after the first minute. Stir until well blended and smooth, then stir in the cream and vanilla until smooth. Carefully remove each cheesecake from its paper liner and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Spoon the glaze over the tops and spread down the sides to coat completely. You'll need to work kind of fast before the glaze starts to set up. Chill several hours before serving or freeze 30-60 minutes for faster chilling.

Makes 6 servings
Can be frozen

Per Serving: 441 Calories; 37g Fat; 12g Protein; 18g Carbohydrate; 9g Dietary Fiber; 9g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 431 Calories; 37g Fat; 12g Protein; 16g Carbohydrate; 9.5g Dietary Fiber; 6.5g Net Carbs



These are very decadent and rich and would make a nice dessert for Valentine's Day or any special occasion. For the cheesecake filling, I was following a recipe that I'd found online but doubled the sweetener. I still think they could use more sweetener. I might go with 1/2 cup next time, but you can taste the batter to see if it's to your liking. Splenda sweetened desserts lose a bit of their sweetness with baking and chilling so use enough Splenda so that it's slightly sweeter than you think you'd like or combine the Splenda with another heat stable sweetener, such as Stevia. Although these look kind of fancy, they were really very easy to make
