Reducing Carbs? The Best Alcoholic Cocktails with Little Carbs

Just because you’re counting your carbs doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy alcoholic beverages. What it does mean, however, is that you need to pay attention to carbohydrates and choose alcoholic cocktails that have little carbs. Despite what you may think, there are several low carb options for when you want to enjoy an adult beverage. In order for an alcoholic cocktail to be low carb, you will need to drastically cut back on the amount of sugar. You can do this by simply creating stevia syrup to use in replace of the traditional simple syrup typically used in cocktails. Stevia, which is a sugar alternative, contains no carbohydrates.

Your basic distilled spirits, such as vodka, whiskey, gin, rum and tequila, are free of carbohydrates. However, fortified alcohols and liqueurs do, in fact contain sugar. That is why you will need to use a basic distilled spirit as the base of the cocktail and then add sugar-free or low-sugar mixers. To help you get started, we have complied the best low carb alcoholic cocktails that you can easily make at home.

Watermelon and Ginger Fizz – Forgo the simple syrup and instead use stevia syrup with a calorie-free ginger ale. Keep the vodka as the base.

Cucumber and Gin Fizz – This common cocktail normally contains tonic water which is high in carbs. Instead, use a sugar-free tonic water – which uses artificial sweetener – to make this drink without carbs. Another option is to use tonic water that is agave-based. This won’t make it no carb but it will drastically reduce the amount of carbs in the cocktail.

Skinny Ginger Mule and Skinny Whiskey Sour – Replace the high carb ginger beer with a diet ginger ale to make this delicious cocktail low in carbs. For the whiskey sour, simply make your own no carb option by creating a sour mix from Lemonade flavored MIO water enhancer and water, and then add whiskey.

Margarita and Mojito – For a low carb option, avoid orange liqueur and instead use orange extract with a little no-calorie sweetener. As for the mojito, you can make it low carb by using ginger ale or diet tonic water with simple syrup that contains no carbohydrates.

The No Hangover Cocktail – While the whole “no hangover” thing isn’t a guarantee, you can use club soda, vodka and lime to create a naturally carb free cocktail.

How To Choose A School For Children

One of the most important decisions that a parent will make is deciding where to send their children for school. This is a pressure packed decision that could very well chart a course for the rest of your child's life. The following these tips can help to provide the assistance that a parent needs when it comes to making this difficult choice.

1. Teaching Staff

The bond that your child develops with a teacher will often determine their level of academic success. This connection's importance trumps that of any curriculum. Before choosing a school for your children, have a sit down with the teachers that will be responsible for your child's education and give your child the chance to meet them, as well. This allows you to see if a rapport can be developed between all parties involved.

2. Strong Math Curriculum

Mathematics is one of the most important subjects to your child's overall development. Your child needs to be exposed to as many math concepts as they can handle, especially during their earliest school days. There is no need to make them wait until they reach an older age. Math aptitude is innate and can be immediately sensed in a variety of instances. Feeding this part of a child's mind at a young age pays major dividends later in life. Remember that you don't only have to rely on the school about it, you can also work together with your kid. You will probably need some educational aids and they can easily be found in such stores as Kohl's, where they also offer you helpful discounts when you use a promo code from or search for other special deals.

3. Lessened Focus On Standardized Test Scores

While high scores on standardized tests are always a good sign, they do not always mean that the student is progressing as necessary. High scores can mean that the student is intelligent, but it can also mean that the school is tailoring their curriculum towards the test. A school that is teaching to these tests is a school that is not covering all of the necessary bases. A school with a contest mentality is not one that your child should be attending.
4. Recess Is Necessary

Don't allow yourself to fall into the trap of believing that excessive playtime is making our children "soft". Children need regular aerobic exercise and physical activity is also scientifically proven to improve a child's cognitive functioning;over the course of a school day. Elementary schools should not be built to function as a boot camp and this mentality needs to be avoided at all costs.; 5. Don't Be Swayed By Fancy Titles; Just because a school has the word "charter" or "private" in its name, this does not mean that it is necessarily the best choice. There is no name that absolutely guarantees the quality of a school. Statistics have shown that only 20 percent of charter schools actually exceed the quality of the schools they are replacing. A public school can provide the same level of education as one that charges a hefty tuition fee.

How a Walker Can Benefit an Elderly Person

Elderly people have different reasons for using walkers. Some use a walker because their legs are weak and they want to feel more secure while moving around at home, the grocery store and elsewhere. Other elderly people use a walker for a period of time while they recover from surgery on their knees or hips. Walkers are helpful to elderly people in a number of different situations throughout a normal day. Take a look at a few of the benefits of walkers for seniors.

Getting Out of a Chair

A walker can assist an elderly person as he or she rises from a chair. It can be a challenge to get out of a chair especially when it’s plush or sits low to the floor. With the walker in front of the person, he or she grasps the handles on both sides and uses it as support while standing up. The walker is there if the person’s legs feel weak or he or she is unsteady. In this instance, a walker can give an elderly person physical support as well as peace of mind.

Taking a Shower

An elderly person may use a walker while taking a shower. Once again, the walker provides support if the person needs something to lean on while bathing. Also, a walker that is made to use in the shower can be helpful to a person as he or she enters and leaves the shower. An elderly person who uses a walker while in the shower can enjoy the ability to shower without assistance from a caretaker.

Getting Out of a Vehicle

An elderly person who is getting out of a car that sits low to the ground wants to feel as secure as possible. A walker can provide this security. The person leans on the walker as he or she is exiting a vehicle instead of simply grasping onto the side of the car door. Plus, once the person is out of the car, he or she can begin moving right away with the help of the walker.

Walkers are practical, durable items that are there to offer strong support to elderly people as well as disabled individuals. Having a walker can give an elderly person the confidence to venture out to visit friends, go on errands and do many of the things that he or she enjoys.

Tired But Happy

Yesterday was indeed a tiring day for me and my cousin/godchild. We roam around downtown to search for good deals of electric fan and Christmas. The sourging heat from the sun did not stop me from roaming around because I really wanted to save some (para sa ekonomiya) :-D. Gladly my lungs was very cooperative yesterday because I did not get allergy and asthma attack. A big thanks.

After going from one store to another we settled on buying electric fan at SM Savemore. And ended of buying the Christmas tree at Robinsons Place Tacloban. The three is a bit expensive but then its the tree that I really like. And I am certain that the tree can stand for five Christmas-es or more just like my old tree that was ruined by Super Typhooh Yolanda (Haiyan). The ornaments for the tree is not cheap as well in fact I still need to buy more next time I have an extra money.

Partnering with Qualified Industrial Equipment Dealers for Prolonged Projects

Construction company owners rely on a variety of businesses to help them carry out their work. They partner with companies that provide them with concrete, water, steel, wood, roofing materials, and much more during the course of a single project. However, all of the materials that they invest in would be worthless if the owners were unable to lease or purchase industrial equipment like overhead bridge cranes, jackhammers, backhoes, and more. When they need such large machinery delivered to and set up on their work sites, owners would do well to partner with a dealer that specializes in making such equipment available to construction companies.

Despite their extensive knowledge, construction company owners more than likely do not know how to set up cranes. They also lack the haulers and vehicles needed to bring such large pieces of machinery to their work site. Rather than having to make do without this gear or using other equipment that fails to do the job properly, these owners can allow crane experts to bring these massive pieces of machinery to the desired location. Once there, the dealership can set up the crane and make sure it is operational before leaving it in the hands of the workers who will use it.

While some owners may lease these machines, others may go ahead and purchase them, particularly if they are going to be left in one place for a long period of time, such as at a quarry or a site that will have ongoing work for years. Even with it being stationary, the machinery may need servicing from time to time. If the people who work for the construction company know how to make the repairs, they can buy the parts they need online. If they need help making the repairs, the dealership from where the machine was purchased can also assist. The parts are available online and do not have to be purchased from a local parts dealer. The parts can even be delivered right to a construction company's location.

For their own research, owners may want to see what cranes look like already set up and ready to use. They also may want to download the brochure on how to use this equipment safely. They can find picture and printed information available to them when they visit the website of their desired dealership online.

Eliminating Dangerous Gas from Your Office or Home

Your home or business may have microscopic traces of a variety of gases, including methane, helium, and other gases found in the environment. Most of these gases are safe to inhale in small quantities without suffering any ill side effects. However, radon is one gas that you do not want to have in your home or business because of its dangerous toxicity. Radon can cause a wide array of health conditions and even cause someone to die if they breathe it in great quantities. Because this gas cannot be smelled or visibly detected, many people have no idea how to find out if they have it in their building.

When they want to know for sure, they can hire professional services like a commerical radon gas mitgiation company and contractors who know what signs of radon to be on the lookout for during their work. When you hire one of these companies, you may wonder what will occur during the process of freeing your building from this dangerous gas. The first thing that you can expect involves vacating the building. The contractors will ask that you, your family, or your coworkers leave the premises while they inspect the area for radon. The contractors will let you know when it is safe to go back inside the building.

If they find radon, these contractors will use their equipment and resources to get rid of the gas once and for all. They must find out from where it is coming first, however. Many sources of radon are found under the ground. They might have to go into the basement or crawl space to find where the radon in entering the house. Once they find the source, they can seal it off and make the house or office safe to occupy again.

They also will sanitize the area to ensure that your building is safe to work or live in again. Even with the source sealed off, you could still get sick from lingering amounts of radon in the premises. By sanitizing the area, the threat of radon exposure is eliminated, and you can go back to your normal routine.

Radon poses a significant risk to the health of you, your family, or your coworkers. Because you cannot see or smell radon, you must hire professionals who are trained to find and eliminate this gas.
