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!

Low Carb Spinach Lasagna

Low Carb Spinach Lasagna

This keto and low carb spinach lasagna is another one of those recipes that prove that you do not need starches and grains to eat exceptionally well.


This keto and low carb spinach lasagna is so delicious. Warm layers of seasoned spinach, ground beef and melted cheese – truly, you won’t miss the noodles at all.

I have learned that quite often, the flavors we associate with grains are in fact the flavors of the fillings and toppings, while the grains are no more than a filler or a binder that absorbs the other flavors. It’s true for pizza, for example, and it’s also very true for lasagna.
The ingredients you’ll need

The list of ingredients needed to make this recipe is simple. You probably have most of them already. The exact measurements are in the recipe card below. Here’s an overview of what you’ll need:
Frozen chopped spinach
Olive oil
Ground beef
Onion and garlic
Kosher salt and black pepper
Marinara sauce
Cream cheese
Egg
Cheese: shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan

How to make keto spinach lasagna
Scroll down to the recipe card for detailed instructions. This is a very easy recipe! You basically have three layers in this low carb spinach lasagna. Each of the layers is very simple to make, and the assembly is even easier:
The spinach layer (mixed with cream cheese and an egg so that it holds its shape).
The meat layer (flavored with onions, garlic, and marinara sauce).
And the cheese layer – mozzarella and parmesan.

When you pull the bubbly, hot lasagna out of the oven, you’ll no doubt congratulate yourself on yet another victory for low carb foodies. Yes, you can eat low carb and eat very well!
Is this a healthy recipe?
I believe it is. For starters, it’s an improvement over high-carb, wheat flourbased lasagna.
Spinach is very healthy. And dairy – including full-fat dairy – is not just harmless but even beneficial for healthy people.
Current dietary advice is to limit red meat. But fresh unprocessed meat is very nutritious. As long as one doesn’t overindulge, or have a specific issue that requires them to limit saturated fat, I believe that red meat does have a place in a healthy diet.

How to serve low carb spinach lasagna?
I usually serve it as a main course. With its layers of meat, dairy and veggies, it’s a complete meal.
But you can serve it with a side if you wish. I like to serve it with a tomato salador with roasted cherry tomatoes, to add color to the meal.

What about leftovers?
You can keep leftovers in the fridge, in a sealed container, for 3-4 days. Reheat them gently in the microwave on 50% power.
You can also cut the lasagna into individual portions and freeze them in freezer bags for up to 3 months.

INGREDIENTS
Olive oil cooking spray
1 (10 oz box) frozen chopped spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb. lean ground beef (85/15)
1 medium onion, chopped (6 oz)
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup marinara sauce (I use Rao’s)
1 (8 oz package) cream cheese
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (4 oz)
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a square 8-inch baking dish with olive oil cooking spray.
Defrost the spinach in the microwave. Drain thoroughly by transferring the thawed spinach to a colander and pressing on it repeatedly with the back of a large spoon to extract as much liquid as possible. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes. Add the beef, the onion and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Cook, using a wooden spoon to stir and to break up the ground beef into small chunks, until onion is soft and meat is browned, 5-7 minutes.
Drain the beef mixture, then return to the skillet. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, 30 seconds, then mix in the marinara sauce. Turn heat off.
Place the cream cheese in a medium microwave-safe bowl and heat for 40 seconds to soften. With a fork, stir until smooth and creamy. Add the egg, the black pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and use a hand whisk to whisk until smooth. With a spatula, add the drained spinach and mix to blend everything together.
Spread the spinach mixture evenly in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the meat mixture. Sprinkle the mozzarella and the Parmesan on top. Bake 30 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Let stand ten minutes before cutting and serving.
