Cheese is delicious. It’s one of nature’s greatest gifts, we think. Cheese fills everyone’s heart with happiness, your mouth will delightedness, and your soul with goodness. That’s probably one of the reasons you’re likely to find at your local Mexican grill hard-working, dedicated employees banded together in the kitchen to hand-grate piles of fresh, delicious, nutritious cotija cheese. Mounds of it! Mountains of it, even.
At the Mexican grill they grate enough cotija cheese to make the Pied Piper lose control of his mice. And the Pied Piper isn’t going to let those mice eat all his cheese. Why? Not just because of the previously noted superior qualities of cheese, though that clearly has quite a lot to do with it. But the real reason that cotija cheese is a beloved staple at the Mexican grill is because cotija is among the greatest possible of all cheeses.
We know that’s a bold statement. It’s hard to take at face value when there are so many other cheeses available, in all kinds of cultures and all kinds of food. Even Mexican grill food occasionally embraces other kinds of cheese, though we suspect it’s a slightly begrudging kind of foray into the world of cheeses that aren’t the beauty and perfection that cotija is more than happy to bring to the table.
So why is cotija the most superior of cheeses? Why does “the Parmesan of Mexico” (but so much better than Parm in our opinion!) have it going on?
Cotija is a salty, crumbly, ridiculously tasty milk cow cheese name after the town Cotija in Mexico. It’s a classic south-of-the-border ingredient, beloved for its tangy zip and unique texture. It’s known as el queso de montaña, or mountain cheese, because its makers live and cheese it up high in the mountains. And that’s where it gets its flavor and color, too-the milk that makes cotija comes straight to us from cows that have been munching on the rich mountain grass that only grows during the short rainy season.
It’s strongly flavored, great for grating, and found on so many Mexican grill dishes (as is proper). From salads to soups, tacos to tostadas, it’s all enhanced by cotija magic. Best of all, and maybe why the Pied Piper the stamina to keep chasing mice, cotija cheese is so much more than just great-tasting: It’s good for you, too.
Like most dairy products, cotija a great source of the protein we need to build the tissue of our heart and other muscles and stay healthy. Just one-ounce serving gives you 7 grams of protein, or a whopping 14 percent of your daily recommended amount of protein. Even better, cotija has got plenty of bone-building calcium. And if you’re diabetic or on one of those low-carb diets, it’s important to note that cotija is also low in carbs. So get behind the Piper in line at your nearest Mexican grill to enjoy how cotija can pack a real punch to your tastebuds.…Read More

If a man losses his health, he loose the charms of happy living. Ask the man who has lost his health. He will tell you the value of good health. Health is real wealth of man.
‘Sound mind in sound body’ is an old saying. Healthy mind can be found only in healthy bodies. Sickly men have sickly minds. Their attitude toward life is gloomy. On the other hand, if the man has good health, his outlook to life is also healthy. He can work for long hours without feeling tired. If a student has good health, his memory is good and his mind is sharp.

Imagine, it’s 11 AM and you are in high school. You just finished your second class of the day and you are heading towards the gymnasium. During this three minute walk towards the gymnasium you stop and talk to your friends, say hi to an old teacher, and try and come up with a good excuse to get out of playing softball today. You hate softball and are even more upset because you are forced to play this game by your teacher. You arrive to class with a poor excuse and are forced to change for class. You go into the locker room, change for class, and walk into the gym dismayed at the fact that yet another day in physical education is spent doing something you don’t enjoy.
This is a thought running through many average teenager’s minds on an every day basis. Many students do not like what they are learning in physical education and refuse to participate in something they have no interest in. Many teachers are content with allowing students to sit out or just stand around during class and let it affect their grade. Is this doing any good? Is the job of a teacher really getting done? Absolutely not, the job of a teacher, specifically a Physical education teacher, is to teach students different healthy and active things they can do as a part of their lifetime fitness. Of course they are their to get their “required fitness time” in, but are they really doing anything about their fitness as they sit and watch half the class play a game they do not like? Are teachers helping fight the growing obesity rates by allowing students to not participate and let their grade suffer?
The solution to fighting the plague of students sitting out of physical education is adopting the style of Elective Physical Education. Elective Physical Education is exactly what it sounds like it is, Elective. The students get to choose which activity they want to participate in for that specific unit. The teachers get together and lay out a certain amount of different activities that the students can choose from to participate in during that time period. Then on the first day of each unit, the activities are all explained and the students choose which activity they will participate in. Now instead of students feeling forced into participating in something they do not enjoy, they have a choice of what they want to do, and what they will actively participate in.
There is a concern about how to make sure a broad variety of activities are covered by each student and to make sure they get proper exposure to different skills, athletic events, and fitness techniques. Each unit should have a specific theme such as team sports, individual sports, lifetime fitness, cardiovascular fitness, leisure activities and much more. By laying out multiple choices within each unit allows for teachers to maximize time on task. Students will be more involved in the lesson, and …Read More

Transgenders from all over the world are turning to the alternative methods of male breast enlargement more and more every year. There are lots of men who have tried to become a woman but have failed at the attempt to grow natural looking breasts because in the past it was just not possible. Cosmetic surgery seemed to be the only way for a man to possess female breasts but the high risks associated with the surgery and the high cost usually turned most men away. Not to mention how it would be almost impossible to achieve larger male breasts through surgery due to the lack of tissue in the chest area in men. Although cosmetic surgery for male breast enlargement is similar to a woman’s surgery, the results are no where near the same and usually result in harder than desired fake looking breasts.

There are two types of male breast enlargement pills, the herbal kind and the hormonal kind. Both of these types were designed for women yet have a similar effect on men. You have to becareful to choose a male breast enhancement supplement that has shown proven results for men trying to grow breasts.
The herbal supplements contain phytoestrogens which are known to mimic the female hormone, estrogen. The size of the female breast is determined by the amount of estrogen in her body. Men seem to react to phyoestrogen in a similar way to women which is why the herbal solution to growing male breasts is popular amongst men.
However, the hormonal kind of male breast enlargement pill will introduce the male organism to develop more estrogen and to decrease the production of male hormones. This will in turn cause a change in men’s body odor, figure and voice. Ultimately, this will lead to a more softer, feminine voice, female body odor and behavior.

Different people have different pressures in life that may make it difficult for them to stick to a certain diet or do the necessary amount of exercises. Some people are into office jobs that will keep them tied to their chairs the whole day so that the body does not get exercised at all. Others may have to hurry through their meals or might have to rely on junk food joints for their lunches.

We live in a day and age when it seems like everyone is trying to get lean and fit, and the Spartans had a great grasp of proper health, but they did it in a different way. They had to, because they had to constantly be battle ready, but what’s interesting is all of the wisdom that they can share with us.
If you take any farm animal for instance, they tend to live out their lives to their fullest longevity, and are happy along the way. Why is this? well, because they only eat, drink, and get the exercise that they were meant to.
Ignorance is bliss, and yet Spartan health in those days certainly was not ignorant, because they knew the power of keeping it simple. So here’s what you can learn from them by keeping it just that – simple.
1. Understand that there are a lot of gadgets that promise total fitness, but that you can go around your house, lift heavy objects, do free-weight squats, push ups, and pull ups and other simple exercises, and still get the same results.
2. We were born knowing what we should be eating, we just break the rules. Fruits, vegetables, fish and meat are all you need to be healthy and happy. Most people make the mistake of just trying to eat right. It doesn’t work that way. You must have some activity, whether its power walking, hiking or biking.
3. Focus on combining these two. I know everyone says this and I know that it sounds so simple, but true physical fitness is just this simple. If you put in the time to build yourself a basic routine – you can do it, but you need to educate yourself a bit on what’s going to work for you.
For instance, my diet is simple. At lunch I mainly just eat a bowl of fruit, which fills me up and gives me a ton of energy. I always have a large salad every day which also is filling and tastes way better than pizza, but I still eat those things too, because I’m not afraid of them.
Extreme behavior is what crushes peoples dreams of fitness. Again, don’t modify and try out different plans, just pick one that is real, down to earth and stick with it.
Ancient cultures and tribes spent their lives studying physical fitness and endurance, because they ere passionate about it, more than we are today. As a result, they developed incredible looking bodies. You think those muscular statues of the ancient Greeks are exaggerated? think again.
Today’s society is distracting. Just as we get started with something that might work for us, we hear about something else that sounds great and chance course before we see any results.
Set up a simple routine and stick with it. Remember, 19 days of doing something can make it a habit. You can get to the point where you do this stuff on auto-pilot, without it …Read More

Modern society insists that nothing worthwhile is obtained without grueling, extraordinary effort, day in and day out. Whether climbing the corporate ladder or losing weight, you have been told that success only comes through massive amounts of time, blood sweat and tears.

In nature, water and air are carried along effortlessly to create tremendous forces. You can train and correct your mind and body to emulate the immense forces of nature.
By practicing effortlessness in thought and movement, you allow your physical and creative energies to accomplish many times more than you ever thought possible through straining.
1. Circular Motions vs. Linear or Power Motions
Raises one arm in front of you and have a partner push down on that arm while you resist or push up. The stronger person will overcome the other. Either your arm will stay up, or your partner will make it go down.
With your free arm, move your fingers and hands in small, circular movements. Imagine you are rolling golf balls in the palm and fingers of your free hand. Notice how the raised arm is much stronger the second time your partner pushes down on it while you are performing this circular motion.
This illustrates how your physical strength can be increased by circular movement energy. Linear, back and forth movements decrease your strength.
2. The Strength of Your Tongue
Placing the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth increases physical strength. It increases your energy flow by physically connecting the central meridians or energy pathways through the body.
Try the arm test with the tip of your tongue lying normally in your mouth, and again with your tongue raised to the roof of your mouth. You will find that placing the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth strengthens you and eliminates your weaknesses.
3. Standing with Toes in and Toes Out
Stand naturally but with your toes pointed out. The arm test will get a weak response. Now, turn your toes in and you will get a strong response. This is another way energy may be circulated to increase strength. Always point your toes inward to stay strong.
Placing your hand vertically along your body’s midline strengthens your energy flow and immediately makes you stronger.
Standing erect makes you stronger than standing too far back or too far forward. Standing up straight must be done effortlessly. Stability in your legs comes from the looseness in your feet, ankles, knees and hips-all of which affect the rest of your body.
