It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Soup (Keto Friendly)

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Soup (Keto Friendly)

If you’ve ever had Panera’s Broccoli and Cheddar soup then you know how deliciously additive it can be. As far as franchise based soups, this soup really isn’t horrible for you.
But when you are watching carbs or eating very low carb (even keto) you want to keep these carbs as low as possible.
Panera’s soup has 20 grams of carbs in a cup of soup. Some of that comes from the broccoli itself along with the flour to thicken it, but still it’s more carbs than I eat in a day now.
So let’s make a few changes.
I went back and forth with whether to label this Keto friendly or not b/c this recipe does have a Tablespoon of flour in it. Is 1 Tablespoon enough to kill this as a keto recipe? I’ll wait for you guys to let me know.
I guess you could leave the flour out or I’m open to alternative flour suggestions if any of you have tried them in this type of soup.
Either way, it still is something I eat for lunch with a protein along side. The ratio is 86% Fat, 6.3% Carbs, 8% Protein in case you are counting macros.

Low carb and keto aside, this soup is just amazing. It has very few ingredients. The onion and carrot soften and become translucent and garlic (of course!) is added. Slowly add the broth, cream, cheese and finally the broccoli and the soup is done.
If you’ve ever made a soup or anything requiring melting cheese then you may have had an issue with it clumping or just getting all yucky on you. There are 2 ways to rectify this:
Make sure the soup is not HOT HOT, have it on a low heat or better yet take it OFF the heat when adding the cheese.
Adding TOO MUCH cheese at once. Put in a 1/4 cup at a time, stir it around. It doesn’t take long to melt and then keep adding it until it’s all incorporated.

A creamy delicious cheddar cheese soup with bits of broccoli. Perfect for a low carb/keto lifestyle

Yield: 5 generous 1 cup servings

  • 1/4 Cup Organic Onion, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Carrot, shredded
  • 1 Clove Organic Garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons Organic Grass Fed Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon whole wheat (or white whole wheat) flour
  • 1 Cup Organic Chicken Broth, warm

  • 2 Cups Organic Broccoli, chopped in small pieces

  • 1 Tablespoon Organic Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup Organic Cheddar Cheese (sharp or mild)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 pepper)
  1. Begin by melting the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and carrots and saute until they soften – approx. 3-4 min. Season with a little salt and pepper as they cook.
  2. Add the garlic and saute another 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  3. Add the flour and whisk for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Slowly add the warmed chicken broth and water allowing the soup come to a boil. Turn the stove down to low or even take it off the heat entirely when adding the cream. Stir to incorporate.
  4. Add the cream cheese and slowly add the cheddar cheese about 1/4 cup at a time, ensuring it has completely melted before adding any more.
  5. Add the broccoli and taste for seasonings. Let the soup simmer 10 min or until broccoli softens.
