Don’t Get Sick This Winter!

orangesComplete Vit CIt’s just another cold or flu you might say, but why succumb to the next virus, flu or immune issue, when with a few lifestyle shifts you could do something really positive to improve and correct your physical and mental body? Building a strong immune system can actually be heaps of fun, as you will learn in this article.

It’s true, your immune system is under attack every day due to so many factors like; stress, lack of rest and poor diet and these three situations all contribute to reducing the strength of your immune system and weakening your body’s response.  But folks, it’s all about response and you can design that response.

Response is the difference between you getting a cold or flu and fighting it off before it takes hold.  Unfortunately we often don’t think about bolstering our immune response until it’s too late.  Another way of putting that is, when you are driving along in your car and you get a flat tyre, it’s only really a problem if you don’t know how to change the flat tyre.  Anticipate the situation, empower yourself with some clever lifestyle alterations and you will nail the whole cold and flu season with confidence and laughter!!!

Like I said most times we don’t think about immune boosting activity or protecting the body until the cold or flu is right there in our body and we are fighting with whatever immune support we have already got stored up.  There’s a few things we can do every day, starting with Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is a water soluable nutrient, which means we have to get it outside of our bodies, so we can store it up again… It’s a tricky one to balance, and is always used up in stressful situations, as are the B Vitamins – both water soluable.

Here’s some interesting facts to consider..

  • The common cold is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with adults averaging 2-4 infections per year and up to 12 infections per year in children
  • Over 75 millions days of work are missed each year due to the flu
  • The Flu can circulate worldwide, easily spreading from person to person and infecting people in any age group Read the rest of this entry

Craving Something Sweet?

Raw Cacao & Banana whip

I was just craving something sweet today, which got me thinking about how that happens.  Sweet cravings are generally more likely to happen when you have not eaten much at breakfast and have been running around doing all sorts of things, and suddenly the time is flying by and it’s 2.00pm and you still haven’t eaten anything.  This was the case for me.  I knew what was happening so I went into plan A, which was to get home as quickly as possible and make something that would satisfy the sweet tooth, but feed the brain as well.

Corruption In A Cereal Box!

EAT, PLAY, WIN, oh Please!

 

Okay, so I purchased a box of cereal during the week as an experiment.  Not just any box of cereal, no no… I purchased NUTRI-GRAIN.  I did this because it was 1) on special and 2) I wanted to study the marketing words, and really scrutinize this cereal and tell the TRUTH about it…These cereals that you buy from the supermarket are mostly in carboard boxes, and designed to hang around for 1/2 a year.  So there is something inside of them that preserves them otherwise the contents would be green and stinking to high heaven.  So what is the deal with ‘IRON MAN’ food, and how sneaky can you get?  I’m going in…… Read the rest of this entry
