Alternative to Eating Eggs

p1010428

Today on OiB I will take about different alternatives to eggs. If you are a person who just cannot do it with eggs, then this article is truly the best for you. Eggs are no doubt very rich in proteins and they have such power and energy that there is actually no substitute for them. Still, I have often been asked how organic can actually be beautiful if one doesn’t want to have eggs.

There is a simple answer to that. What I have found out is that it all takes for you to know what eggs contain. You can then make up for all these things that an egg provides with intakes of different things that are rich in the same. There are three types of people who cannot have eggs

  • People who are allergic to eggs
  • People who just don’t like the smell or taste of eggs
  • Vegetarians who do not want eggs to constitute their meals

Let me first tell you what eggs contains in them. Eggs are known to be important because they have too many benefits just through one simple egg. You can make up for them by eating multiple things but you can’t find all that in one simple ingredient.

  • Eggs contain lots of proteins
  • They can be had in different quantities and do not result in causing any heart diseases.
  • They have such contents that in fact raise the good cholesterol in the body
  • They are rich in too many antioxidants
  • They have lots of vitamins, minerals and good fats in them
  • Eggs also have iron, phosphorus, selenium and choline which is important for the brain
  • They help to lose weight too

I have substituted all these with different essential ingredients. If you are looking for its substitute in taste, then make sure you try the commercial egg replacer from stores. On the other hand, for gaining health benefits I normally eat the following or replace it when I am in no mood to have an egg.

  • I replace each egg for mashed potatoes if I need to bind a cutlet, loaf or a burger
  • I make crispy tofu to have an egg-less salad
  • If the egg is used for adding moisture to any recipe, I add in ¼ cup banana puree for each egg asked for. Even apple sauce, vegan sour cream, and pumpkin can be used for the sweetness
  • For baking, I make sure that agar powder is used instead of egg whites or soda is used for cake mixes

For people who need to eat things that can in any way replace some of the health provided by eggs. They can include the following in their diet

  • Lean meat is the best option and the number one to provide many essential proteins.
  • Fish is a game changer for iron sources that make up for eggs beautifully

There are many other techniques as well. If you want to know more or have any of your own, let me be obliged by your comments below.

You Deserve Your Affection First

YOU DESERVE YOUR AFFECTION FIRST – Organicisbeautiful.com

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” -Buddha

Hello there,

If you keep waiting for people to like or love you, your wait maybe forever. In fact, for you to be able to accept and appreciate the affection of others, you need to give it to yourself first. Spend time, money and resources in taking care of yourself, not for anyone to admire you but because you love yourself and you want to show it to yourself.

The word affection is one that primarily describes our actions towards others and not to ourselves; as perceived by most people. But that is where the misconception starts, it is not only possible but highly recommended that you also have affections towards yourself. You need to have strong affections towards yourself before any form of constructive affection can grow for others. Now, most people always talk about how noble it is to put others before you, but if you truly put yourself last, we all know what might happen (you’ll die for everybody, and no one will probably remember you).

Showing affection towards yourself before anyone else might sound a bit selfish but frankly speaking, everything we do is for selfish reasons. It might only be a good one; for example making an effort to change humanity because of the joy and happiness of being fulfilled and impacting lives. Humans are often driven by rewards, and even if you do not know if you do everything for the desired result, so when it seems that you do not care about yourself you should take time to meditate on the reward that is compelling you to do so, it might not be worth it, here is one that actually is.

The most basic human instinct is survival and all the necessary things we do is in that regards, whenever it looks like you are giving up your survival for to acquire something or someone it’s because deep down you believe that you need that person or that thing to survive, for instance, some people derive their importance from other people’s approval, so they don’t mind doing whatever it takes to get it.  But that’s all wrong the first person

Hey You, Yes You! You Are Beautiful

You always need to remember that time waits for no man and one day you will no longer be in this world, if you live your entire life loving everyone apart from yourself you will realize, on your dying bed, that you did not live a life. You need to enjoy every moment enjoy them just because you like them that’s how to show the world that you matter most.

YOU DESERVE YOUR AFFECTION FIRST – Organicisbeautiful.com

Deep down, you know that you matter most and you know that every other person feels that way, so why do you hide it? Why do you keep punishing yourself to get on the good books when quite frankly speaking they don’t care about your opinion as much as their happiness?

As shocking as it may sound, some people don’t understand themselves and are not even aware of their true identity and that is because they’ve lost themselves in trying to love and be like others. You need to realize sooner than later that you are your best friend and no one has your best interest in mind more than you do, learn to show yourself love and affection and learn to interpret your feelings more.

Imperfections are Beautiful

In summary:

  • Be kind to everyone, starting with you!
  • If you do not love ‘you’, why should I?
  • Loving yourself is what liberates you to love others.
  • If you do not give affection to yourself, you will not be able to receive it from others.

Feel free to share your thoughts with other readers, I will personally love to hear from you. Cheers!

Plants That Purify Air

Plants That Purify Air

 What do NASA spaceships and your household have in common? The air inside it and how stale it can get when the windows are closed! So, dear OiB readers, I ask you: how do you purify your home’s air? For me, I rely on clean-air plants alongside other organic cleaners and purifiers. It is time to grow a green thumb and bring these plants that purify air into your home.

 There was a discovery not too long ago by NASA through the Clean Air Study about several species of houseplants that draw formaldehyde and other toxins from the air.

Plants That Purify Air – Organicisbeautiful.com
  1. English Ivy (Hedera helix)

Ivy is a resilient little plant that does well in low or moderate light in a variety of temperatures. It happens to love small spaces, too. The dense foliage has superior formaldehyde and other contaminant absorption powers, so if you live in an urban zone, English Ivy is perfect for you. A couple pots around the house will do wonders!

  1. Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata)

Feathery leaves and stunning fronds make the Boston fern an ever popular plant to keep indoors. I think they look splendid in hanging baskets in the kitchen or bedroom. Best of all, the Boston Fern is up in the purification rankings. But do note that ferns do not like dry air and can be challenging without constant humidity.

  1. Peace Lily (spathiphyllum)

Though these plants do not get too big, they are tremendous for ridding the air of pollutants like ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. Keep your peace lilies in a shady spot and maintain a damp soil. In the summertime, you will be gifted with fragrant blossoms. If you have a pollen allergy, though, you may want to rethink the peace lily.

  1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

Also called “mother-in-law’s tongue,” this plant with dagger-shaped leaves thrives without much light or care. During the nighttime hours, the snake plant will consume carbon dioxide and release pure oxygen. Recommended for bedrooms. Snake plant also rids the air of benzene and formaldehyde.

  1. Dracaena

Lucky bamboo is just one example of the over 40 different dracaena species out there. They are hardy plants with wide leaves in multiple colors. Whether you place them in low light or high, or in humid climates, dracaena hold up well. If you have curious animals, especially cats, do be careful. Dracaena is toxic when digested.

Not only do plants seriously liven up the space, they improve the quality of the air you breathe. You will feel more refreshed instantly. Now that you know what plants clean the air, pick up a few the next time you pass the local florist. With springtime right around the corner, there is no better time to go green!

What plants do you have at home?

You Are Your Own Superhero

YOU ARE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO – Organicisbeautiful.com

Life has been tough. Really, it has been for me. I have learned to lean on people but most importantly, I have also learned to stand alone and to look after myself and not always depend on others to take care of myself.

You, yes you, You Are Beautiful

SuperHero Code: Stop waiting for others

I have faith in people but I choose to be prepared to rescue myself from any mess, just in case no one shows up. I have been failed by people before and I have received huge crowd letdown before and I know what it means for me not to be there for myself. I don’t wait around for other people to encourage me. I find my motivation because I am my own first superhero and I will not let myself down.

  • I motivate myself.
  • I roll up my sleeves to work hard.
  • I rise to any challenge that comes my way.
  • If I don’t take care of myself, who will?
  • My tears will call ‘pity-parties around me but my sweat will call celebrations around me.

Emotions are contagious! 

SuperHero Honor: I don’t push my responsibilities to others

I don’t allow myself to get to the point where I leave the responsibility of my life to others. I want to take the bulls of life by the horn and have a good life. It is my responsibility to discipline myself. It is also my responsibility to make sure that I improve myself in every way that I can. When I mess up, I clean it up myself and learn from my mistakes. I am responsible for setting my goals and I am responsible for achieving them or for failing to achieve them. Superheroes never push responsibilities. They roll up their sleeves and work.

  • When it comes to my issue, the choice is always mine.
  • Nobody should have to clean up my mess, I am an adult now.
  • Nobody owes me anything really.

You are Good Enough

you are good enough

You are good enough – organicisbeautiful.fr

One of my favorite quotes of all time is “Your background does not mean that your back should be on the ground”. I look round me and all I see are people who all seem to be better than I am, they are more beautiful (or so I thought), they looked smarter, they smile more, they have more talents and display much more wealth than I have. I actually started to believe that I was not good enough.

Why you are already a winner?

My parents loved me, but that love was not going to be enough especially when my sister seem to be prettier, smarter and much more gracious. I know they tried to hide it, especially daddy, it was just too obvious and I was also way too sensitive. As if to add insult to injuries, almost all the children in the neighborhood seems to prefer her to me, in fact they preferred everyone else to me. This led me to a reasonable assumption; I was not good enough!

School did not seem to make it any better, arithmetic seems to be everything to my teachers and I was never going to be good at it. They always seem so upset with my mathematics grades, they helped me to turn my reasonable assumption into an obvious conclusion, I was not good enough!

I decided to impress, I would clean and cook, wash and iron; just so my folks will take their attention away from my sister long enough for them to notice me, and it never worked. I would sometimes feign sickness, that didn’t work either; I studied so hard I got into honors’ roll in my school, nobody even remembered by the next day after our report cards got home; I was heartbroken, nothing would ever work.

Know Yourself to Be Happy

you are good enough 2

As I grew up, I found ways to be rebellious and to fight a lot, I thought I had a point to prove; if people were not going to accept and love me naturally, I might as well make sure they notice me. So I thought if I kept doing bad things I would be noticed, I was wrong, it only made things worse.

I got into high school before I got completely fed up with competing with others, I had this great teacher who told me I walked like a queen, she told me I behave like someone of royal blood. He would tell me I was special, I was unique and I should seek to live like a queen.

Emotions are Contagious.

One day, I broke down in his office and wept bitterly as he tried to drag me out of the pit of inferiority complex that had been my prison from childhood. From that day, I started a process that made me realize that I needed nothing else to be good enough, I just have to know it and live it. 

Be Grateful | OrganicIsBeautiful

I am so glad today that I can tell you that you are god enough; you only need to know what you have and the best way to use it. Never compare yourself with someone else, you will never be them and they will never understand what it means to be you. Go ahead and live your dream, you are good enough and you have what it takes to become what you were born to be!

Accept yourself, appreciate yourself, love yourself, build up yourself, and celebrate yourself. You are good enough. OrganicIsBeautiful Signature
