It’s that time of the week again – hump day! I cannot believe how fast the weeks are flying by and how the weekends are forever fast approaching. I guess I shouldn’t complain though as it is an indication that I’m enjoying work at the moment. Here’s a scary thought though; we are officially six months away from Christmas! Which makes me wonder how many of us have actually stuck to and achieved our New Years resolutions?!
Anyway, a slightly different post today about another aspect of my diet, which arethe vitamin and mineral supplements I consume. There has often been negative associations made about supplements such as a healthy diet should provide all the nourishment and nutrients required, leaving little argument substitute products. However, in a modern environment it is considerably different when compared to our ancestors therefore disease can often be induced even in the healthiest of diets. More information can be found here about the arguments around supplements and particularly why they are important.
Apologies for my lack of posts over the last week, it has been a non-stop few days with action packed birthday celebrations. My flat mate and myself have also experienced a case of food poisoning so have been bed bound for the last 24 hours, which has been quite a joy! I am now promising myself that I stay in hibernation until I have to hop onto an aeroplane to Colombia next week. Yippee!
Today’s post is not a recipe I am afraid however I promise I will recommence cooking (and eating!) this week. I just wanted to highlight the importance of a healthy diet as per my previous post. The other day I was in the gym and I kid you not there was a girl on the treadmill next to me, running and eating a flapjack?!! Now, I’m not sure if she was aware of what she was doing, or whether like so many of us thought she could ‘reward’ her exercise with a treat. However, it got me thinking how many of us do this. How many people do you know that leave the gym and go and have a take away because they have ‘been to the gym’? If this much effort has been put into their diet, I dread to think how much effort has gone into their workout.
