WEEKLY RESTAURANT CRITIQUE
N & Out Soul Food and Catering
* * *
I recently visited one of Baton Rouge's newest Soul Food hot spots and was pleasantly surprised with the truly authentic flavors on the menu. N & Out Soul Food and Catering offers delightful down home choices with a Jamaican twist. The atmosphere was a typical dive environment and the staff were very friendly. From the moment that I walked through the door the aroma of a stewing meats and simmering gravy's filled my nostrils and my stomach immediately began to churn. At the suggestion of my waitress I ordered the oxtail with white beans which was served over rice, and boy id I make the right choice. The oxtail were seasoned to perfection bringing out the rich flavor of beef oxtail. They were fall off the bone tender and melted in my mouth. The white beans were creamy and were enhanced by the flavor of smoked pig tails giving way to a hardy and satisfying meal. I completely enjoyed my visit to N & Out Soul Food and will be back!!!!

2. If you’re self employed, make sure to keep up with your log book & receipts.
3. If you’re self employed and plan on purchasing a home, DO NOT deduct everything, because the lender will consider the total amount of income AFTER deductions.

FOODS THAT LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
Making some stuffed peppers for dinner tonight could be the first step on a journey toward a healthier heart and lower blood pressure. Bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, with more of the potent antioxidant than even citrus fruits, which has been shown to improve cardiac function and lower blood pressure. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that loading up on vitamin C reduced blood pressure by 5 millimeters of mercury in patients with hypertension, making these versatile veggies a smart addition to any meal plan.
An apple a day really does keep the doctor away, particularly for those struggling with high blood pressure. In addition to the 4.5 grams of blood pressure-lowering fiber you’ll get from each apple, you’ll also enjoy a healthy helping of quercetin, which has been deemed an effective antihypertensive, according to the results of a study conducted at the University Complutense of Madrid’s School of Medicine.
Start your day with a round of zesty pink grapefruit and see your blood pressure numbers shoot into a healthy range in no time. In addition to being an excellent source of blood pressure-lowering, immune-boosting vitamin C, pink grapefruit is a good source of lycopene, which multiple studies have deemed effective at reducing blood pressure. In fact, a Finnish study published in Neurology reveals that study subjects with the highest concentrations with lycopene in their blood decreased their risk of stroke by 55 percent.
