Corn on a Charcoal Grill

corn-on-charcoal

If you’re planning a barbecue gathering for the weekend add “Corn on the Cob” to your menu list. 

It’s simple, easy and delicious.

Place them naked on the charcoal grill and flip on each side until all sides are cooked well. 

Don’t overcook, so you can feel the juices squeezing out. 

I love to serve them with a dressing of lemon, oil, salt and fresh chopped coriander. Just delicious :) 

Let me know how it goes.

Body Image, Healthy Diet and Young Women

ID-100202620

Numerous young women link their body image to self-esteem. With peer pressure and social influence they often tend to drift with the wave of wanting to look “thin” like models on TV or in magazines in order to feel confident and to have a sense of belonging.
It’s very important for young women to love their body and never compare themselves to others; but above all, they should never link food & dieting to emotions. The purpose of dieting ought to be for a healthy living and not for image.

Know more about this topic by checking my article on The Makeover Website where I give simple smart tips that will help young women eat healthy while enjoying their bodies.

I don’t know if you’re familiar with this site www.makeover.me, but it is a community website created by Kotex Lebanon, sharing lots of interesting and beneficial topics, tips, and more about menstruation, health, healthy eating, beauty, relationships & fashion. The website also contains a movie guide to the latest movies in town.

What’s even more interesting¬ is that they have a mobile application. So you can have all this content at hand at any time. You can download it from the App Store or via Google Play.

When you check out the article, let me know what you think :)
