Breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day. And since mornings suck … breakfast should be a meal that makes your taste buds happy and gives you fuel to crush the day. Right? Right.

That’s why these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls are my new favorite thing.

They’re super easy to make.They can be made ahead of time .. like when you have an hour to spare on a Sunday.They’re perfect for quick grab and go breakfasts all week!

Let breakfast never be boring again!

Typically my breakfast meal prep includes hard boiling some eggs and calling it a day. But since I discovered how easy it is to make Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls … my hard boiled egg days are over!!!! (My coworkers will be happy. Those things are stinky).

I’ve taken the liberty to create four different flavors for you, so you can pick and choose which one you make … or you can make all four for a little bit of variety.

Each one of these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls makes enough for four large bowls, but you can also divide the ingredients into more bowls if you don’t need quite so much.

Let’s talk about the flavors:

Mexican Meal Prep Bowl – it’s like a breakfast burrito, but in a bowl!Spinach and Mushroom Breakfast Meal Prep Bowl with soft boiled egg – oh, and feta and avocado. You can’t go wrong.Country Breakfast Meal Prep Bowl – just your typical breakfast. Substitute any meat (or use leftover meat from dinner!) and add veggies if you want. The world is your oyster.Savory Bacon Cheddar Chive Oatmeal – Oh me oh my. Oatmeal just got so so so so much better.

I love each and every one of these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls equally, so don’t ask me to choose favorites.

They’re just all so good for different reasons, plus they’re healthy and super filling.

If you’re feeling ambitious, I urge you to make all four and mix it up each day of the week. That’s what I did and it only took about an hour! Yay for beating breakfast boredom.

Russia Completes Tests of a New Ballistic Missile

Russia has confirmed that it had finished testing a new silo-based short-range ballistic missile on Oct. 18.

The new missile, the Iskander-M, is a tactical missile carrying a conventional warhead.

The Iskander-M is designed to destroy battlefield targets such as artillery, rocket launchers, command and communications centers, and aircraft and helicopters parked at airfields.

Maj. Gen. Oleg Kislov, head of the Kapustin Yar testing range at Russia’s Dombarovsky missile base, said the Iskander-M missile hit its target at the Kura testing range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, this launch marked the completion of a series of tests of Iskander system at the Kapustin Yar testing range.

“The completion of the testing of a new missile for the Iskander system is among the most significant events that happened recently,” Kislov told state news agency RIA Novosti.

Activity has increased at the Dumbrowsky base this year. Kislov claimed that more than 160 projects, representing every branch of the Russian armed forces, were being worked on at the base in Russia;’s Orenburg region.

“In addition, intense effort is under way to modernize the training ground’s testing facilities, new facilities are being built and the old ones are being modernized,”Kislov concluded.

Skirting INF Regulations

The Iskander-M, with a claimed range of about 250 miles and a payload of 1,543 pounds, does not violate the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). However, the missile is nuclear-capable.

The Iskander effectively replaces Russia’s Oka-class nuclear missile, which was banned by the INF treaty.

An earlier test, reported by the state-run Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, claimed that an Iskander-M launched from a site in Astrakhan traveled 300 miles to a test range in Kazakhstan, confirming that the Iskander missile is accurate out to its maximum potential range of 310 miles.

Stepped-Up Missile Development

Russia has completed more than 50 ballistic missile launches so far in 2017.

Col. Gen. Sergey Karakayev, commander of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, announced in December that Russia has also been developing new heavy-class thermonuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile, called Sarmat.

According to other media, the Krasnoyarsk Machine-Building Plant is ready to start mass production of the new super-heavy thermonuclear armed missiles.

The new nuclear missile is expected to be online in 2019 or 2020.

Sputnik: Pres. Duterte Tells CIA ‘Kill Me or Get Out of My Country’

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has accused the US Central Intelligence Agency of plotting his assassination, and not for the first time. Whether his allegations hold weight or not, the spying organization has demonstrably played a role in the slaying of numerous troublesome world leaders.

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte said October 12 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) should be blamed in the event of his untimely death.

“As for me, I’ll be telling Filipinos: if I die, it’s America [that’s behind it]. It’s the CIA. CIA, stop f***ing! One day, I will just drive you away. Either your cahoots here will have to kill me or you have to get out of my country. Choose,” the President said.

t’s not the first time Duterte has trained his oratorical crosshairs on the CIA. In September 2016, he claimed he’d received reports the agency wanted him dead.

Moreover, in August, the Philippines National Democratic Front alleged the CIA had been plotting to overthrow the president for veering towards Russia and China in world affairs.

He went on to suggest his internal political opponents should join forces against him into “one command.”

“I would be happy really if they would start to merge. These Communists and Liberal Party members. These others who want me out of office, should unite in one group. I think you share the same ideological whatever so things won’t get scattered-we can focus on all of you. This is no threat. I said it is my mandated duty to keep this country safe and sound,” he concluded.

How Cannabis Ravages Cancer Cells.

This Is Mind-Blowing. Believe it or not, marijuana actually has a long-standing use in Native American traditional medicine and was considered a cure-all in the early days of modern western medicine. In fact, the plant was only outlawed from hospitals and doctor’s offices in the mid-1900s. Thankfully, marijuana is gaining more and more traction in the United States as a respected medicinal treatment. 

Many people have even come forward with testimonies of having cured themselves of cancer thanks to the powerful plant. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved Cannabis as a treatment for cancer or any other medical condition, but many states have legalized its medicinal use 

(1). Ironically, although the FDA refuses to recognize its value, cannabis-derived drugs like as dronabinol and nabilone have been approved for the treatment of cancer-related side effects. Currently, there is research being conducted to create more marijuana-based drugs for diseases of the nervous and immune systems. The History Of Hemp As of 1970, through the initiation of the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana continues to be classified as a Schedule I drug (like heroin, LSD and GHB), meaning that distinguished by having no accepted medical use and has a high potential for abuse 

(2). Yet countless case studies dating back to the 1840s prove otherwise. A respected study conducted in 1999 even found that cannabinoids likely had a natural role in pain modulation, control of movement, and memory function, and that the compounds played a complex role in immune response. They also found that the substance had insignificant side effects, withdrawal symptoms and low potential of dependence, especially when compared to commonly used drugs. In fact, side effects were mostly positive and included better digestion, pain relief, euphoria and better sleep quality. This is incomparable to the effects of chemotherapy, which can cause pain, nerve damage, hair loss, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, blood disorders, memory loss, reproductive disorders, damage to healthy cells, and the list goes on 

(3). To top it off, cannabinoids were actually found to be superior to some chemotherapy treatment options in killing cancer cells. How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cannabis contains active compounds called cannabinoids, which bind to cannabinoid receptors in your cells. The most bioactive cannabinoid known to man is called Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, but it requires other naturally-occuring cannabinoids to properly do its job 

(4). There are two types of cannabinoid receptors: Cb1, which are mainly found in your brain, but also occur in your heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas and Cb2, which exists in your immune cells. When cannabinoids enter your bloodstream, they find their way into your cells and bid to these receptors. Think of them as a key trying to find its way to a lock. Once it reaches the receptor, the compound makes its way into your cell. If the compound reaches a healthy cell, it has little to no effect. However, if it reaches a cancerous cell, it induces apoptosis, or programmed cell death.This means that it forces the cancer cell to commit suicide. Researchers believe this occurs because cancerous cells have a greater number of receptors and entice a different reaction from the compound once it binds to their receptors. Additionally, cannabinoids have been proved to direct inhibition of transformed-cell growth, as well as inhibition of tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. Some trial have found that cannabinoids could kill 100% of cancerous cells in lab studies and 25-30% of tumors in mice studies, reducing tumor size significantly in the remainder of the mice. How To Make Your Own Cannabis Oil Cannabis oil has been studies as a cure to over 187 diseases and medical conditions ranging from insomnia, epilepsy, diabetes, stroke, and brain injury to asthma, dementia, fibromyalgia, ADHD, and almost every type of cancer. There many recipes available on the web, but the one below is detailed and easy to follow.  All you need to do is make sure to follow the instructions carefully and use high-quality ingredients.
