Professional Ebook Creation

The demand for ebooks has increased in this era of digital technology. Have you ever wondered how fast book companies like and Scholastic are able to convert their titles into ebooks? Even the old titles are now readily available in the online bookstores. They are not doing it themselves of course! There is a third party company who does the document conversion for them. It is not surprising that they are employing the services of a company like Aptara Corporation.

Aptara is one of the industry’s leading companies in digital publishing. Amazon and Scholastic are just two of the known companies that trust Aptara. With 20 years of experience, Aptara is able to gain the necessary expertise to provide their clients with high quality output. With the employment of the Lean Six Sigma Methodology, as well as ISO 9001 & ISO 27001 certifications, Aptara’s services are world class. Surely, with the approach of quality control, who can question the capabilities of Aptara’s more than 3700 professionals worldwide?

On a smaller scale, independent authors can also work with Aptara for their Ebook creation. As already mentioned, a lot of people are now leaning towards reading digital files rather then sticking up with old-school printed books. Ebooks are environmentally friendly as well as easier to bring around. One just needs to have a reader, save ebooks into the device and he is ready to go. This is why small-time authors also need to plan ahead and issue their work digitally. Aptara’s project editorial team is able to track the processes for the client helping them achieve high level of efficiency, profitability and cost-effectiveness. The assigned team is also willing to provide support from infancy to completion of the project. With the kind of service Aptara offers, no big company or new market player will go wrong.

Bread Wraps

Bread WrapsThis is what I have been eating for about a week now. I have been trying to live a healthier lifestyle and lose weight but have been unable to give up on carbs just yet. I compensate by moving a lot. I try to get up and do jumping jacks or dance every hour for five to ten minutes,  just to spark my metabolism. My goal is to be able to fit into my clothes before my two kids before I turn 30 10 months from now. If you think about it, if I am just consistent, that would be 10lbs a month – a 100lb loss! (That’s too much though, I might fit into baby clothes already – just kidding :D)

Anyway, back to the bread wraps, the wrap itself is still high in calories, but it leaves me fuller faster. Rice just makes me crave more.

These are the nutritional values for a whole wheat pita bread:

Eating to Cheer Yourself Up

Depression affects so many people in various levels. There are people who pull themselves out of the hole without any help, some just need someone to talk to while some need medical intervention. While I agree that there are people who need anxiety depression treatment, I still believe that therapy like talking and love from family and significant people will help more.

There are even foods that can help alleviate depression!

“Happy Foods” To Chow Down On

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Helps build your brain’s neural connections and the receptor sites for neurotransmitters, resulting in an increase in your level of serotonin. Foods high in Omega 3 include nuts and seeds, oily fish such as tuna or salmon, avocado, dark green vegetables, and extra virgin olive oil.

B Vitamins

Cannot be stored in our bodies and are killed by refined sugars, alcohol, and caffeine, making it necessary to include them in our daily diet. B vitamins affect systems differently, but in general they are a key factor in providing energy for the brain and processing amino acids. To obtain a sufficient daily intake you should consider taking a vitamin supplement in addition to eating foods rich in vitamin B complex.

Amino Acids

5-Hydroxy Tryptophan, made from the amino acid tryptophan, is crucial in boosting your serotonin levels. This can be found in protein-rich foods such as fish, meat, beans and eggs.


Is responsible for maintaining a stable blood-sugar level, as insulin is unable to function properly without it. Foods rich in chromium include onions, broccoli, tomatoes, romaine lettuce and grape juice.
