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.
  • Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food
  • Don’t eat anything that is incapable of rotting
  • Avoid food products containing ingredients that are unfamiliar, hard to pronounce unpronounceable, more than five in number, and that include high-fructose corn syrup
  • Avoid food products that make health claims; a health claim on a food product is a good indication that it’s not really food
  • Shop the edges of the supermarket and stay out of the middle. In most supermarkets, processed food products dominate the center aisles while fresh food line the walls
  • Get out of the supermarket whenever possible and go to a farmers’ market.
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.

Any kind of exercise, be it aerobic, walking or Yoga, changes the brain's composition, structure and the way it operates. The changes that happen to the brain:

  • Brain waves increase
  • Increased sensitivity to surroundings
  • The building of neurotransmitters and increased neuro-connections
  • De-ageing.
The Snail’s Pace In The Afternoon

Feeling inactive, sleepy and lethargic after lunchtime is a common thing. 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.

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.

Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a mathematical formula and divides a person's weight by the square of their height. The answer falls into one of eight categories and indicates the person's bodyweight, from very severely underweight to very severely obese. A high BMI can indicate a high body fat and be used to screen for possible health problems.

But BMI is not a perfect measurement and may actually overestimate or underestimate a person's body fat.
