Facts About Exercise.

Did you know…

– Exercise improves your immune system- that is, helps your body fight off potential illness.

– Eating fruit before exercise reduces the chance of you losing weight as a result of the exercise. Your body uses the fructose instead of body fat as fuel for energy during your workout. People who do not want to lose weight, but want to exercise regularly should consider having a piece of fruit 30 minutes before your workout.

– Exercise reduces the effects of stress, depression and anxiety by assisting the body in releasing happy hormones to improve your mood! (IBS sufferers, this is ideal for you. Did you know the main trigger of IBS is stress? Even if you don’t think you are stressed it could be the cause of all your pains and discomfort. Add some more exercise into your routine to cheer your body up!)

– Eating properly pre-workout, post-workout and pre-race can improve your performance, for a good read, click here: http://www.womensfitnessmagazine.com.au/fitness/exercises/2013/9/eat-for-exercise/

Exercise is incredible for the body, it: helps the body fight disease, age well, improves bodily functions, improves digestion (IBS people, this is a good fact for you), improves flexibility, helps with stress, helps with improving sleep, makes you feel good, gives you more energy, can help with mental illness as well as reduce the chance of developing memory issues at an old age, and gives you goals which can give you something great to work towards and look forward to each day.

The Giggles of Health Food

So, today I decided to be a bit adventurous in the health food isle at my local supermarket. I came across 2 new things I thought I’d give a go: 1. Dairy-Free White Chocolate – Don’t try this haha. It was awful, I’m not sure what I expected but I use to love white chocolate before I became dairy intolerant. This will never replace the real stuff!

2. Tamari Roasted Almonds – If you find these, definitely try them, they are delicious.If your Australian they are at Woolies in the vegetables section in a little container (check my Instagram to see a photo).

So I scored a 50% success rate in finding something nice today, there are some duds out there. But if your lucky you can find some really delicious products that are healthy alternatives to the real thing and that may actually taste better.

Anyone have any recommendations for nice things to try? I absolutely love food, and like to take my time to browse items in the supermarkets!

The Importance of Carbohydrates.

For those of you who have heard the tale that goes along the lines of “if I cut out carbs its the healthiest way that I’ll lose weight and the best way” and ever believed it; If you know how important carbohydrates are for your body, you’ll probably never skip them again.

meal Planner: Details on Added Extras!

I’m working on the meal planner today and have added an extra few little features, such as a “No Wasting” section, encouraging you to use elements of the foods you used in a particular day as part of the meals for the next day! Cheaper for you, and less waste occurs. Also, I am adding the Dietary Food Intake recommendations, so that you can ensure you are including the serving size that is suitable for your age group or gender. Have a great end to the week lovely people!

Get The Most Nutritional Value From Fruit & Veg’!

Produce that is in season locally is cheaper, tastes better and has more nutrients. Fruits and vegetables start to lose nutrients immediately after they are harvested, so the best produce is that which is the freshest. Produce that has been transported over long distances overseas or cross-country can not compete with locally grown produce for freshness, taste and nutritional value. (http://seasonalfoodguide.com)
