Don't Be Ashamed

Many people are too terrified to go to the gym because they're afraid of being judged by other people, but the reality most of the time is that nobody really cares.

If you're able to push yourself to get past through the discomfort for a couple of sessions then soon after you'll be changing your perspective of the gym.

Produce safety doesn't stop at washing
  1. Choose produce that isn't bruised or damaged.
  2. Keep produce away from raw meat and anything similar to it in your grocery cart.
  3. Use a separate cutting board for prepping raw produce. Never place cut-fresh produce on surfaces or plates that have held raw meat and anything similar to it.
  4. Store pre-cut and highly perishable fresh fruits and veggies in the fridge with a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or 4.44 degrees celsius.

Savoring Chocolate: Taste
  • Take a bite of your chocolate and have your tongue spread the melting chocolate all over your palate and notice the feeling of what we can compare to a symphony.
  • The front notes, middle notes, and the afternotes of the chocolate will liven your experience.
  • Some chocolates may lead with acidity and follow with fruitiness and earthier tones.
  • The only way to build your chocolate savoring skills is to buy more chocolate and keep on tasting.

The Rise of Nutritionism
  • Nutritionism is not the same as nutrition. It is not a scientific subject but an ideology.
  • Ideologies are ways of organizing large areas of life and experience under a set of shared but unexamined assumptions.
  • For nutritionism, the widely shared but unexamined assumption is that the key to understanding food is the nutrient; foods are essentially the sum of their nutrient parts.
  • This means that to live in this ideology of eating unseen nutrients (unlike food, we don't see nutrients) you need lots of expert help.
  • Nutritionism is good for the food business but no so much for us.
Excessive Sugar Intake

The excessive consumption of sugar is linked to an increased risk of poor health outcomes such as:

  • heart diseases;
  • type 2 diabetes;
  • weight gain;
  • higher blood pressure;
  • inflammation and many more.

It's not recommended to consume sugar that is more than ten percent of your daily calories from added sugar.

Ordinary and altered states of consciousness

Altered states of consciousness can only be defined if there is an understanding of an ordinary state of consciousness.

While scientists can't agree on a clear definition, altered states of consciousness are nevertheless essential to understanding the human mind.

The Snail’s Pace In The Afternoon

The activity levels of our body basically depend on our lifestyle and also on our body clock or circadian rhythm which is controlled by the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus in our brain by releasing the hormone melatonin which makes us feel sleepy in afternoon.

Why do I always get an energy crash in the afternoon?

Cooking oils

Cooking oils tend to get their name from the nuts, seeds, fruits, plants, or cereals they're extracted from.

They're characterised by their high-fat content, including saturated fat, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Consuming too much saturated fat - more than 20g for women and 30g for men per day - makes the body produce cholesterol that increases the risk of heart disease.

Breathing: The First Act Of Life

Breathing is the first basic act of life and we take about 670 million breaths in a lifetime.

Breathing is so natural to us that very few scientists have studied it in detail. Breathing is thought of as just a binary activity crucial to our lives, but the way we breathe matters a lot.
