Congrats to the Seahawks and Patriots who head to Super Bowl 49!

The New England Patriots slaughtered the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7 to win the AFC Championship and face NFC Champs and Super Bowl 48 Defending Champs, Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 49 on February 1. The Seahawks came from a 16-0 deficit with the Green Bay Packers to win in overtime 28-22, definitely the game of the day. The Seahawks got pretty beaten up, Sherman with an elbow injury scheduled for an MRI today and others. Can the Seahawks still win 2 consecutive Super Bowls? It will be a tough one. May the Best Team win!

Are you ready for NFL Sunday?! Who will head to the Super Bowl?

If Defending Champs, Seahawks go all the way, they will be breaking through some stats for sure! The Seahawks look hungry and it will definitely be hard for the Packers to beat them at home, even worse with an injured QB Aaron Rodgers. He has a strained calf but found a way around running to beat the Cowboys, but can he be that good against the Seahawks’ huge defense? I doubt it. The Colts-Patriots game is a toss up even though the Patriots will be at home. SuGa thinks it will be a Seahawks-Colts final. Stay tuned to SuGa’s Facebook page for updates. Have a great weekend and Drink Responsibly 🙂

Break the Monotony and Keep Changing the Ingredients of your Salads

Trying to lose weight from the holidays and getting bored with salads? Mix it up a little. Try the following but also take into account the portions of each food group used. For instance, if you are keeping a low or no sugar diet, you may not want to have chopped mangoes or raisins. But still check the following ingredients out:-

Keep it leafy with lettuce, spinach, arugula, asparagus or string beans.

Add some flavour to your greens with a fat-free or low-fat vinaigrette or lime juice.

Add some healthy protein like tuna, turkey, boiled eggs or boneless, skinless chicken breast.

Add some fibre with chickpeas or quinoa.

Make use of various kinds of nuts such as pecans, walnuts and almonds.

Make it colourful with strawberries, black olives, tomatoes, carrots, mango, cranberries, beetroot, purple cabbage or corn.

Top it off with cheese! Grated parmesan or a sharp reduced-fat feta.

Experiment and see which ingredients work best with each other. Salads can be fun!

Fresh Eats from Y.not.pita and Subway

Y.not.pita in Courtyard 71 on Lady Musgrave Road and Subway in Liguanea, continue to be two of the few places that prepare food right in front of your eyes. The service is good at both establishments. There is a wide variety of toppings for sandwiches at Subway and wraps at Y.not.pita. However they both lack a variety of cheese. Subway only had the White American cheese two weeks ago and the Cheddar cheese was finished at Y.not.pita 3 weeks ago. I expected better from Subway, being an American franchise that usually offers four types of cheese. Despite that issue, the wraps and sandwiches were tasty, fresh and filling from both. The Italian herb cheese bread from Subway was awesome!

They also offer Pizza and Salads, various combos with drinks and Soup (Y.not.pita) or Chips (Subway). So persons can get a decent meal or combo for $1200JMD or less. Subway also gives customers punch cards, so after a few meals you can get one free. Keep it fresh!
