Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: Butterfly Love

Develop. Inspire. Transform.

I rise from the ashes of past

with a ladle of love in my right hand
and butterflies alighting on my left

thinking about the trees dwelling within me
how they do always seem

lost in times of chaos, yet they
keep me warm

tangled emotions
cutting deep within, where love and pain
are perfect twins

and life is lived beneath the texture of your skin

Chico César comigo!

” É belo vês o amor sem anestesia

Dói de bom, arde de doce

Queima, acalma

Mata, cria

Chega tem vez que a pessoa que enamora

Se pega e chora do que ontem mesmo ria

Chega tem hora que ri de dentro pra fora

Não fica nem vai embora

É o estado de poesia. “

Chico César. Estado de Poesia

Oatmeal: Not as Simple as You Think | Food Manufacturing

I Stock 1139597714

Extensive studies have associated oats and oatmeal with plenty of heart-healthy benefits, such as lowering cholesterol (both total and “bad” LDL cholesterol) and helping with weight control.

Oatmeal has a host of vitamins and minerals. Two examples: According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a one-cup serving of cooked oatmeal has about 1.8 milligrams of vitamin B1, or thiamin. That’s close to 15% of what an adult needs each day. It also has 1.36 mg of manganese, which is 59% of the daily recommendation for men and 76% for women. Manganese has roles in immunity, blood clotting and the way cholesterol and blood sugar are metabolized.

But that’s not what makes oats stand out, Rebello said. That same cup of cooked oatmeal has just 166 calories and nearly 4 grams of dietary fiber.
