Women Decoded: 7 Words and Phrases All Men Need To Know from babble.com (these made me chuckle!)
(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut the heck up. Immediately.
(2) Five Minutes: If the woman is getting dressed, this means half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with "nothing" usually end in "fine."
(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it!
(5) Loud Sigh: This isn't actually a word, but a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of "nothing.")
(6) That's OK: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. "That's OK" means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you -- do not question it. Just say: "You're welcome." (I want to add in a clause here -- This is true, unless she says "Thanks a lot" -- that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say "You're welcome" to a "Thanks a lot."' That will bring on a "Whatever.")

Sweet Dreams - A new study by the University of Montreal reveals that 83% of women and 78% of men have dreamed about being chased. Dreams of falling are the third most frequent dream.

Food Cravings: What Do They Really Mean from huffingtonpost.com Sweets When you're jonesing for chocolate, stop and evaluate how your sleep has been lately. When tired, many people crave carbohydrates for a quick energy boost since carbs are our main source of fuel. Simple carbs, such as sugar and white bread, are digested quicker than complex ones such as whole grains and beans, so the energy kicks in sooner. Crunchy A handful of nuts a day can be a healthy snack, but it can also hint to an inner frustration and irritation. The act of chewing and cracking the food in your mouth can momentarily release that angst, but the problem is the second that the crunching stops, the frustration returns -- and many people go back to eating more and can end up polishing off an entire bag of chips. Creamy Dishes such as ice cream, mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese are called "comfort foods" for a reason: Craving them possibly points to worrisome thoughts, and what you really need is to be soothed. These are also high-carb, high-fat foods. Carbs boost the 'feel-good' hormone serotonin, and when you eat something high in both carbs and fat, it can trigger the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of pleasure and reward. Caffeine Anytime the coffee shop or a soda machine calls your name, you're likely more than just thirsty. You may feel discouraged or dissatisfied with your job and reach for these 'quick fixes' to perk you up and get you through the day. Carbs While cravings for pasta, bread and other carbohydrates can come from a number of physiological reasons, including a high insulin level or low blood sugar, it's more likely that you're depriving yourself. Typically, when someone is on a strict eating plan or has declared certain foods 'off-limits,' they will want them that much more

White House Beer!! --> "Assistant Chef Sam Kass gave out the recipes for White House Honey Brown Ale and the White House Honey Porter, which contain honey from First Lady Michelle Obama's garden beehive as a key ingredient. Kass wrote that the honey, quote, "gives the beer a rich aroma and a nice finish, but it doesn't sweeten it." President Obama reportedly bought a home brewing kit last year and has served the beer at St. Patrick's Day and Super Bowl celebrations. It's believed that this is the first time that beer has ever been brewed at the White House"

10 Calming Foods from ivillage.com Swiss Chard. This versatile leafy green is loaded with magnesium, which is considered by many nutrition experts as the ultimate “anti-stress” mineral. Magnesium helps muscles and nerves relax. Cauliflower. Cauliflower is high in fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and elimination. If stress causes constipation or other digestive problems, bulk up on this veggie. Spinach. With a laundry list of micronutrients such as vitamins A, C, K and folate and minerals like manganese and iron, spinach should be the top staple in everyone’s diet. But in times of stress, the adrenal glands (where stress hormones are stored) tend to be particularly depleted of their normally high levels of vitamin C. Pumpkin Seeds. Zinc is essential for immune health and stress management, particularly in our fast-paced urban lifestyles. Symptoms of a zinc deficiency include loss of appetite, irritability and depression. So a handful of pumpkin seeds now and then isn't a bad idea. Broccoli. With more vitamin C than an orange, broccoli is also a rich source of vitamin A and potent antioxidants that help your body manage everyday stress. Tuna.A great protein source, tuna also contains omega-3 fatty acids (the “good fats” that Americans are not consuming enough of). Think of the omega-3 fats as a natural anti-inflammatory. When stress is present (especially chronic stress), inflammation can take place throughout the body. Asparagus. This spring vegetable is not only high in antioxidants (ideal for combating oxidative stress) but also a good source of tryptophan, an important amino acid that the body uses to make serotonin, which helps us sleep and supports a healthy mood. “Serotonin deficiency is the most common cause of panic attacks Nutritional Yeast. You may think of it as just “hippie food,” yet this nutritional powerhouse has stress-relieving B vitamins and 15 minerals, including magnesium, selenium and zinc. It boosts metabolism and is beneficial for stabilizing blood sugar and weight loss. Bell Peppers. Thanks to their high vitamin C content (291 percent of the RDA), bell peppers are a good anti-stress food. They’re also low in calories (red bell peppers are only 25 calories per cup) and high in dietary fiber. Parsley. This member of the carrot family delivers an astounding amount of stress-busting nutrients like flavonoids, a type of antioxidant found in plants that protect against free-radical damage (which are the result of stress) and vitamins A and C. Your body will thank you for all of the protective powers it provides.
"MCDONALD'S REVEALS RECIPE OF ITS SPECIAL SAUCE: If you love the special sauce that's on McDonald's Big Macs, you'll now be able to whip up a batch of it at home, after the fast food giant revealed the recipe. A marketing video from McDonald's Canada arm shows executive chef Dan Coudreaut making a version of the Big Mac at home and he outlines exactly what's in the special sauce, saying the information actually has been available for a while already so it isn't a secret. The ingredients are: mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, yellow mustard, onion powder, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, and paprika."
Strawberries. The perfect summer snack: filling, light on calories and laden with nutrients from omega 3 fats to cancer-fighting polyphenols. Just half a cup of strawberries provides over 70 percent of your daily Vitamin C, plus fiber and an array of antioxidants. Cherries. Sweet, juicy cherries contain just 87 calories per cup -- and if you enjoy them three times weekly in place of heavier desserts, you could shed up to five pounds this summer alone. Plums. Whether eaten whole, dried or pureed into sauces, plums are low in calories and a good source of both dietary fibers and Vitamin C. Squash. From pattypan to zucchini, summer squash delivers major vitamins and nutrients (including magnesium, potassium and copper), to the tune of a mere 80 calories per half cup. Bell Peppers. Sweet red peppers are such a good source of beta carotene, and top the charts of vegetables for that important antioxidant. Green bell peppers also contain generous amounts of Vitamin C. Mangoes. Dense with antioxidants -- plus protein and omega 3 fats -- mangoes are a delicious, low-calorie way to bulk up meals with exotic flavor, ensuring "healthy" fare doesn’t fall into a rut. Parsley. This often-overlooked herb is packed with slimming potential. According to researchers, each cup contains 984 micrograms of vitamin K -- a nutrient that prevents fluid retention and flushes out bloat, helping women shed three pounds of excess water weight if they serve it up daily. Beets. One of the real gems found in beets is the B vitamin folate, a key nutrient for women. Beets help protect against heart disease, birth defects and certain cancers, especially colon cancer.
