Happy, Happy New Year! I hope 2018 brings you all the very best of what you desire; whether it’s better health, improved relationships, secure finances, daily positivity and gratitude, or just lots of happiness and love! I was ready to say #byefelicia to 2017 and am diving in to the new year with hopeful anticipation! Ok, if you don’t reside in the south, you may not know about the tradition of eating black eyed peas early in the New Year, but it’s definitely a thing that dates back to the American Civil War. It is said to bring prosperity in the new year ~ I’m all for that! My version of Instant Pot Vegan Black Eyed Peas and Kale is as I mentioned, is vegan, but you don’t have to be of course, to enjoy this savory, delicious, healthy soup; but, kudos to you if you’ve made the mindful decision to be kinder to your body in 2018!

Did you know that you’re missing out on the awesome potato’s fat-fighting power when you eat them warm instead of cold? It’s true! When you let them cool, then refrigerate them and eat them cold, their digestible starches transform into ‘resistant starch’ known as retrogradation. ..a process that resists digestion and promotes fat oxidation which reduces abdominal fat. Without that process, fat molecules would stay in their bigger form and the bigger molecules can’t be used as energy by our bodies, so, they just neatly, or not-so-neatly pile up. Not good! Cold Potatoes Reduce Abdominal Fat!! Keep reading for other foods that have beneficial resistant starch as well.
