As the weather is warming up so does the desire for simple salads. This recipe is based on cucumbers but it would be super simple and delicious to add a few cherry tomatoes or even some chopped fennel. Super easy to make, this little recipe is a great side for your meal tonight. How about trying it beside our Stuffed Capsicum recipe?
o as a parent you would be quite aware that when schools, sports and community groups need to raise money for important projects, they usually use sugary treats. It’s a bombardment of sugar and other nasties all for the sake of fundraising. And who are you to argue when your child’s club or school needs the money, right? Well, Australasia’s most trusted garden care business YATES wanted to provide Aussie kids with a fresh and healthier alternative to fundraise. Yay!
Do you need an easy mid-week meal? This one takes a little prep in the chopping and organising but there’s nothing complicated about this meal. Beef provides zinc, iron, protein and B vitamins to name a few goodies. Broccoli is packed with dietary fibre, manganese and vitamins. This green vegetable is a must in a family household. You can mix and match the vegetables to suit what you have at home, just like any stir fry. Enjoy!
Social media can be a tough place and it seems to be open fire for criticism some days. Some just love to sit behind their computer and use it to slam others down as quickly as they can. And that’s what happened when Simone Biles – a 4 x gold medal-winning gymnast from the USA – shared an Instagram photo. Was she being an idiot? No. She was having a great time with her friends. The problem? There were girls with ‘six pack’ abs. Luckily it was only a problem for one Twitter troll who commented ‘Y’all find this attractive? Imaaoo’.
Slap! Well, yes, I have had another wake up call this week! The dreaded five letter ‘C’ word has shown up on my doorstep again…CANCER! Who’d of thought? Nearly 15 years in remission and living more or less a happy, healthy life. And, I am into natural health and well being, so HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING TO ME?
There’s been a bit of a tinkering in the media this week as to whether or not the iPhone generation should take selfies. Mia Freedman came out this week encouraging the avoidance of all nude selfies. I guess I see her point. It can be risky to even have them on your phone. With the cloud and theft there is the risk that those photos will end up in someone else’s hands.
But I also noticed the backlash she received from this too. Shouldn’t your phone be your own private possession?
Weight loss is a popular topic. Just Google it and there is a plethora of ‘experts’ ready to give you tips. Here’s the problem. Even the so-called experts don’t have a clue sometimes. They are getting you to ‘eat less’ and ‘move more’ and it’s not working. At least not in the long term. That’s because drastic weight loss that happens too fast really stuffs you up in the long term. It causes a significant reduction in metabolism. This means that you are using less energy during the day. What happens then? You have to eat less and less to be able to keep the weight off. That’s not sustainable!
