Smoothies: Bagging the Benefits!

A fresh start the Monday after a greasy weekend telling the world that your diet starts soon, usually involves blitzing every fruit under the sun in a blender with very, very, good intentions.   The first couple days go well and your will power means less carbs at lunch, less wine at night and less snacking in between. Mornings two and…

Brain system of emotion, and how to manage anxiety

Hey guys, I hope you’re all keeping well! 😀 It goes without saying that my blogging hasn’t been the most prolific lately, which I apologise for (things have been crazy busy), but there’s nothing like a new post popping up out of the blue either, eh? 😛 With this post, I’m reverting way back to my original plan for the blog which…

Last One on the Soccer Team

Up until a few years ago, I struggled badly to find anything I was ever good at. Cracking jokes, getting puns, understanding politics, holding a debate, or even being a boy in general. Nothing struck as a talent. And most of all; you could stick me on a pitch with a soccer ball on the…

Packaged Right: My Top Ready-Made Picks

It goes without saying that we all have busy lives these days. So when it comes to preparing meals, sometimes we… well… just would rather not do it. Supermarkets are a godsend to the 21st century in that some of the ready-made meals and products they stock can save us minutes and hours in the kitchen;…

My Plan for Endorphin Stew

Well, that was tough.   Just one month ago, I wrote my last blog post. I announced my break from blogging. Because I didn’t feel I was in the right place at that time to project the positivity I had been projecting on this platform without feeling disingenuous, I decided it was the best thing…

Green Tea for Coffee; A Month of Benefits

          Going cold turkey on something I’ve loved in the past has never been an easy feat. Yet, despite my many failed attempts at eliminating certain parts of my diet before, I recently decided to give up a central part of it during turkey’s warmest season: coffee.          …

Rich Feeds, Light Fees

Earlier this week I posted my first – of hopefully many – blog posts on student meal prep. As promised, I’m following it up with a little nutritional info on some of my favourite foods within the post. A lot of nutritional info together can be a lot to take on, so I’ll keep it short and sweet; hopefully…

Yoga to have a laugh

“If heaven exists, to know that there’s laughter, that would be a great thing.” Robin Williams.     Yoga has always intrigued  me. Whenever I’d think of it, I’d imagine meditation; and exercise; and relaxation.  However, up until recently, there was one dimension I’d never have known to associate with it: laughter. But it turns…

There’s Something About Exercise

Exercise came into my life just as I was looking for change. I asked her out, she said yes, we ran with it…our first few hook-ups were great. She’d compliment my legs, promise great things for my body and get my heart pumping until I felt refreshed, euphoric and confident. I really liked her. And…
