Is It Better To Drink Or Chew Your Calories?

vs

Let’s say one day you’re on the go (sort of like right now?), and you need a little something to hold you over before your late-dinner plans. With no salad joint in sight, you duck into a fresh juice place and order up some green concoction that contains the likes of kale, celery, spinach, parsley, romaine, and ginger. The million-dollar question: Are you getting the same nutrients and benefits of fruits and veggies when you slurp them down as when you crunch away? If babies can eat pureed carrots and still get all the vitamins and fiber and not a boatload of extra sugar and calories, why can’t we? Two words: Speed eater. 100% agrees that digestion is key to getting nutrients, but not all of us are doing it as slowly or as effectively as we should be. “Both your teeth and saliva start the digestion process in your mouth,”. “But speed eaters tend to chew their food less and, therefore, end up not getting the maximum nutrients from their food.” (It could also be the reason you feel super-bloated after a meal.) The obvious upside to liquefying veggies: No chewing required! (The only exception to this would be if you suck it down through a Slurpee-style straw, so whenever possible, drink from a glass or take off the lid). Drinking your fruits and veggies can help you truly reach the four to five servings per day goal., “Any vegetable or 100% vegetable juice counts as a member of the vegetable group. Vegetables may be raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, canned, or dried/dehydrated; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed.” You’d have to eat approximately nine cups of kale to get the same potassium, calcium, and iron in two cups of kale juice.

Although it could be true that sipping your greens could be best for our hypothetical, an on-the-run-snack or morning treat, not a way to get your only daily dose: “In juice form, beets delay feeling of fatigue during exercise. Overall, juice is better for a quick-energy boost than raw veggies. But how does the liquid form compare to, a salad in nutritional value? From a vitamin perspective, vegetables require us to ‘unwrap’ their contents — and juice doesn’t play hard to get. The other potential downside to drinking your greens is the F word. While pureeing retains fiber, it requires less complicated digestion. Especially, the prepackaged, not-blended-right-infront-of-you kind. Any processed juice will decrease the amount of time and energy your body needs to break that food down. Going organic when choosing your fruits and veggies is also important to lessen exposure to unwanted pesticides. The fiber in vegetables increases feelings of fullness — and there are two reasons fiber leads to fullness: One is the sheer volume in the GI tract. And two: the release of a hormone called cholecystokinin in the small intestine when fiber is ingested, which sends the brain the message we’re getting full,” she says. Just like with a plate full of salad, it’s not like a green juice is calorie free — it is still food. On average, veggie juices with one fruit have about 150 calories per 16 oz, If you love yourself a green juice, keep your habit down to one to two a day or simply when you’re in need of vitamin-charged pick-me-up.

1 Rinse the catfish fillets under cool running water and then pat them dry using paper towels. Put the catfish fillets in a couple of long containers or baking dishes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of seasoning evenly over one side of each of the catfish fillets.

2 While the catfish is marinating, put the cornmeal, flour, and salt into a dish and mix until combined. Once the catfish has finished marinating, dredge each catfish fillet into the cornmeal mixture. Flip each fillet around to evenly coat it and then gently shake off any excess. Place the coated catfish onto a dish.

3 Add your oil to a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. You can put a pinch of the cornmeal mixture into the oil to test when the oil is ready. Once the cornmeal starts to sizzle quickly, go ahead and gently place two catfish fillets into the oil.Fry the catfish for 3-4 minutes per side

Once the catfish is done frying, place the two fried fillets on one of the plates with the paper towels. Place two additional paper towels on top of the cat fish and press down gently with a fork to absorb any excess oil.

Fill a high ball glass (special variety of cocktail glass shown in the picture) to the half way mark with ice. Pour the vodka and blue curacoa shots into it at once and shake in a circular motion to mix it up. Do not use a stirrer to stir the drink because it will take the texture of it’s taste away. Pour the lemonade over the ice and alcohol mix. Again shake in a circular motion to mix it up. If you want your drink to be stiff then use 3 parts of lemonade instead of 4. If you use two then it will become too stiff to be a proper cocktail. You can garnish this drink with a variety of things. For a sweet under taste float some cherries in the drink. For a citrus touch you can put a slice of lime.

make-up tips With Sue the make-up girl

T

his season there has been a BIG beauty buzz around ‘BB

creams’ most major cosmetics brand have come out with their own version of this skin perfector. For this issue I’ll be doing a review on ‘Maybelline New York’s DREAM FRESH BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector ‘ but before I get into that let me give you a little history on ‘ BB creams’. The first ‘BB cream’ was created by German beauty therapist, Dr. Christine Schrammek. The original ‘BB Cream’ was a Blemish Balm ( now were know where the ‘BB’ came from) that was said to provide coverage, adjust to one’s skin tone, protect skin, improve skin texture , reduce the size of pores , hydrate skin , have a slight skin lightening effect . Since the invention of the original Blemish Balm there was been many other copies around the world. The term ‘BB Cream’ has even taken on new meaning- Beauty Balm. Beauty Balms have taken the beauty industry by storm with companies such as Maybelline, L’Oreal, Stila, Smashbox, Too Faced, Clinique, Garnier, Es-

Releasing their own spin on the traditional BB cream. Some characteristics of these modern beauty balms include: sun protection (most having SPF 15 and higher), anti-aging properties, lightweight tinted moisturizer, light coverage, skin hydration. The Maybelline New York DREAM FRESH 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector is an affordable version of the BB cream. It claims to enhance your skin through its eight benefits: 1.

Blurs imperfections

2. Enhances 3. Brightens 4.

Adjusts to skin-tone

After using this product I do believe that it does what it

claims to do. However I must stress that this BB cream offers very sheer coverage but it does reduce redness and blur imperfections to make them less obvious. If you need major spot coverage I would suggest that you try conceal-

Crush two aspirin tablets (which have acetylsalicylic acid to dry out the pimple and eliminate inflammation), and mix with a drop of water and a drop of honey to create a paste. Apply to the spot, and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. If you need extra coverage, use an oil-free con¬cealer or powder

ommend this to persons who have very dry skin as it has great moisturizing properties without being greasy. If you have oily skin, then I’d suggest you lightly apply translucent powder to avoid looking oily with this product. This product is also great for those persons who need very little to no coverage from foundation who just want to even out their skin tone and look radiant without heavy foundation.

Dark Armpits? Brighten up with a lotion that contains hydroquinone (a good one: Ambi Fade Cream, $5). Also, use a new razor every three shaves (dull ones irritate your pits). Sugar Scrub

Product Rating: 4/5

Put a bit of soap on your f ace and then scrub the sugar in until it dis¬solves. It will feel quite abrasive at first, but after a minute or so, it should feel great.

Designer on the rise: Noella Eze Noella Eze is more than a Bachelor of Commerce student

of Fashion Management. She has managed to stand out not only as a stylist but also as a designer. As a child her mother made all their clothes, she was a very talented seamstress and Noella loved it. She loved it because if a dress didn't fit right she could get her to fix it. Her mother of course, hated this because, children aren't very nice when they want something and she was a persistent child especially when it concerned clothes and shoes. They had to be perfect! Petite Mademoiselle is one of Noella’s projects, she styles models on shoots and have an eclectic range of looks to work with. Every body type is fine, she loves putting pieces together and creating a look that both the model and will be satisfied with. However if there is something specific in mind she has a close relationship with each client, she wants her clients to look good so if you're set on a particular design and it won't flatter your body type, there will be tons of choices to choose from. She is hitting the fashion world with elegance and a bit of her humour and corky personality.

ES- Where did you get your talents? NOE- I’m not sure they were acquired; I think they are more innate but I have developed them over time. My strong influences come from within my family, I have a large nuclear family (there are eight of us) and an even larger extended family all of whom are very stylish in their own way. I have always been fascinated with styling and modifying clothing. Another place I honed my styling from was my upbringing. My parents had a lot of classic movies and I grew up loving these movies. Till today, my favorite channel remains TCM (turner classic movies), all they show is old black and white movies. I love it. Also, Coco Chanel and her idea of minimalism and elegance. She was fiery, stubborn and she kicked major fashion ass, I hope to kick some too. ES- What gave you the inspiration to do what you do? NOE- I like seeing well dressed people. My favorite era in time is the 20s. It was glamorous, it was beautiful and people put effort into what they wore. Putting clothes on wasn’t just a matter of covering nudity, it was about expressing yourself and telling people who you are. It doesn’t hold true today anymore, people aren’t trendsetters, they just follow. I want to create trendsetters. I want people to start seeing clothes as not just commodities but as an extension of their personality, that is what inspires me. ES MAGAZINE | 14


ES- Where do you see yourself in 10 years? NOE- Done with school! I love education and I am relentless in my pursuit of knowledge. I'm currently doing a degree, I already have a diploma and I want a Masters as well (a PhD too but much later). So, in 10 years I should be done with the Masters at least. I also hope to have not only started my own business, but have established a solid brand name. I also wish I would grow another inch. It would be nice. ES- How do you stay motivated? NOE- How do I stay motivated? I have this big picture in my head of what I want. It's like a poster of what I want my future to be like and I consult it every time I feel myself veering off the beaten track. I want to make a mark in the world (Beyonce's I Was Here could have been my thought waves word for word. It is my new soundtrack, I love her for that) There's also the fact that I want a closet full of designer shoes and clothes someday. That requires money, which in turn requires hard work and I'm not afraid of hard work, so, I will have my shoes. Someday

ES- Why did you decide to do design/styling? NOE- Why did I decide to do this? Well, I mentioned earlier that I’m a huge fan of the 20s, by extension a huge fan of elegance. Elegance is missing in today’s fashion. We are no longer innovators and we don’t try anymore. I want to bring back the idea of trying, the idea of class and elegance into one’s wardrobe. That is my mission and that is why I do what I do. ES- How would you describe your style, or favourite styles? NOE- My style is eclectic but elegant. I believe in experimenting with fashion and styles, and style as an extension of who I am. I won’t wear something if it doesn’t express my personality, I might love it, but I won’t wear it unless I can find a way to make it uniquely me.

ES- How do you balance doing what you do & other obligations? NOE- To balance what I do, I pick up good habits, for example I recently trained myself to wake up at 6am daily. It gives me extra hours in the day to get stuff done. I also discipline myself and I try not to make excuses for slacking off. If I slack off on a project, there's as pretty good reason why. I also make to-do lists, those are VERY good for productivity and juggling. Last but not least, I have a great support system of family, friends and loved ones who never let me quit. My immediate family alone is composed of eight dynamos who are relentless in a pursuit of excellence. When you're surrounded by that, you simply cannot stop. Last but not least, I drink a lot of coffee. I call it my elixir of life, which is a bit of an exaggeration because I can function fine without coffee; it's just a habit, a very delicious one. ES- What is your biggest accomplishment in your field so far? NOE- I attach importance to everything I do. I do things in a series of steps, so in its own way, everything I’ve done is my biggest accomplishment until I accomplish the next step. Right now, I would say my internship with Kaela Kay. I’m pretty excited about that. Also being featured in this magazine is pretty kickass!

What Is Glycolic Acid

Why Do You Need It?

E

very time we open up our in-boxes, there's some new wonder ingredient — found deep in the jungles of the Amazon or 20,000 leagues under the sea — that promises to transform our complexion. Pardon us, but we're getting a little weary of all these supernatural skin care claims. We'd much rather hedge our bets on something that's not only tried and tested, but that actually works. Glycolic acid is a fruit acid, derived from sugar cane, and is best used to exfoliate and retexturize your skin. According to dermatologist Dr. Craig Austin, it also has the smallest molecular size of any alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), meaning it can actually attract water, which gives it moisturizing qualities, too. "Glycolic acid significantly improves the skin," says Dr. Austin. "It is clinically proven to correct hyper-pigmentation and skin discoloration, reverse sun damage, decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and shrink pores. The result is radiant skin with a healthy glow."

Glycolic acid is a good option for those seeking anti-aging benefits, but also for those suffering from acne and its side-effects. It can help clear up breakouts, fade dark marks left behind by pimples, and minimize scarring. There are also no limitations with glycolic acid, unlike retinols. "It can be used in all seasons, for all types of skin, and is even safe for women who are pregnant. Glycolic acid is good for all skin types and pigmentations. Those with sensitive, dry, oily, dark, and light skin, all benefit from using it. And unlike retinols, it won't increase sensitivity to the sun or result in dry, red, irritated skin. Recently, pure glycolic acid has been used in conjunction with other antioxidants for better delivery and effectiveness. These antioxidants are more beneficial when they are part of a formula with glycolic acid, than when used alone. Ready to add this little skin care miracle worker into your daily skin care regimen?

Black as Cole T

he year has definitely started off with a bang and what better way to start it with Black as Cole. No it’s not a new dance but it’s a Jamaican Jam-on-Dub band. With a killer lead songstress who has a sultry voice Cecile Black and a bass player Craig Cole whose skills are magical.The band was created by both Cecile and Craig, their combination of each surnames “Black & Cole” was the creation of “Black as Cole” the band name. September 2011 Black as Cole started to make promising steps as musicians, this included Elisha Ellis(Drums) , Richard Nelson(Guitar) Paris(Keys) and Tariq Hilton (BackgroundVocals). It was the time to start spreading timeless reggae music.

January 2012 the band auditioned for the Jamaican Jazz & Blues talent show that is held yearly. Black as Cole had a chance to perform at the Jazz & Blues Festival Talent show and they gave an astonishing performance, in front of thousands of international audience. Q- Why did you all decide to make a band? We feel that we have something worth saying, we want to express our thoughts, experiences and desires, and music is that medium that fits right with each of us. Like the great pioneers that were before us we hope to leave an indelible mark on the world, of positivity and love.

Q- What’s the meaning behind the band’s name? Is there a significant reason? We are an Afrocentric movement and the name signifies that we accept and proudly express our love for the black race, never to suppress or change our core values. Q- How long has the group been around for? The band had been together for a little over a year now. We did our first show on September 30,2011 at the UWI, Mona campus alongside other reggae acts including Protoje and Raging Fyah. Q-There’s 8 band members in the band, and there is a lot of personalities do they sometimes clash? Simply put, everyone is made different but it's our differences that make us special. That is the approach that we have taken as a band, we channel the differences in personality and even musical background into the way we play and create our music, hence we are able to tap into the fusion that make's BLACK as COLE unique. Clash- free harmony.

ES MAGAZINE | 24


Q- Greatest moment so far? Our greatest moment thus far was when we were offorded the opportunity to perform on the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2011, after auditioning and making the top 12 selection of pool of more than 50 different bands. This came only 3 months after we started playing together when we only had one original song. Now we've grown, written more and we press on towards making many other great moments.

Q- When you are creating a new song where does the inspiration come from? Our songs come from real life experiences, challenges and moods. We try to write joyous music while still being socially aware but always positive. Q- What’s the story behind “Musical Romance”? It’s the story of how the lead singer of the band (Cecile) fell in love with the bass player (Craig). This was the first song that the band created. We are proud that it we were able to capture the essence of the moment into song. Q-What does each member bring to the band? In addition to bringing their talent and love for music to the band each member has a different preference in genre which influences their feel of the music. We try to foster true expression within the band, individually and as a unit. This is what makes our music ours.

Q- As a band what makes your music authentic? Our music is essentially a fusion of reggae/dub and every other genre that we are feeling at the time. We play an eclectic twist on Reggae that we call Jam-on-DuB. We sought to stay true to the sound of the Wailers and other stalwarts of reggae while still allowing for individual expression and feel. We are not trying to recreate what we've heard; instead we are seeking to create a sound that defines us.

Q- Do you feel there is a message in your music? Most definitely majority of our songs delivers messages of love. Love for self, others and the higher being. We firmly believe that love is the answer to issue that faces humanity.

Q- Do you get nervous when you perform? Yes, we do get nervous, but not to our detriment. In a sense we see nervousness as an indicator that we are you’re putting yourself on the path to new experiences. We ensure that we practice together as much as we possibly can in order to get better and become more confident as a band.

ES MAGAZINE | 25


Q- Do you have any other pastime besides, making music? We love hanging out together, to watch movies, to attend concerts, to chat and chill. The cool thing about BLACK as COLE is we are all friends, so even if we are not making music chances are we doing something together, if even to talk about music. Sports-wise we are split between basketball and soccer. Q- Do the family support the band? Not all the band members family support the decision to be involved in reggae music, since it is seen as a secular form of music, but we continue to trod down the road of positivity to prove to them we are not like the stereotype they have in their minds. Hopefully one day they will see the good in what we do and accept it Q- What are the hopes for the near future regarding the band? Our hopes for the near future are that we will be able to perform more shows across Jamaica and also to start touring internationally spreading the love through our music. Other things on the agenda are our hopes to release our first album in 2013. Until then tough we will give fans a taste of our diversity with the release our second single in January, it is our interpretation of Adele's "Hometown Glory". Q- How long have each been singing/playing instruments for?

BLACK as COLE has grown to 8 members, the additions being keyboardist/producer, Jon-Joseph Nepaul, and background vocalists, Toni Blair and Chad-Anthony Smart. In 2012 Black as Cole released “Musical Romance” the first song as a band. The story behind “Musical Romance” and video is beautiful. It’s about the lead singer (Cecile) falling in love with the bass player Craig. The video was released on YouTube , it’s a must see. This band may be an underdog, but this band is already rocking! This is one band you definitely won’t forget.

Cecile [Lead Vocals] – 14 yrs Craig [Bassist/Producer] – 20 yrs Jon [Keyboardist] – 12 yrs Richie Nello [Guitar] – 5 yrs Elisha [Drums] – 11 yrs Paris [Keyboards] – 11 yrs Toni [Background Vocals] – 17 yrs Chad [Background Vocals] – 10 yrs__
