Glutamine

Good Day Earthlings! This past weekend saw Dischem (a huge pharmacy franchise in South Africa, and the place I get my supplements/vitamins/medication) have their usual sale on sports nutrition with 20% of all non-advertised products; which is pretty much everything in that isle. One of the items in my basket was glutamine. For the past…

FA Cup Champions!!

Glory Glory Man United! Glory Glory Man United! Yeah baby! Finally! The first piece of silverware in three seasons! Of course, that community shield Moyes won doesn’t count. So Manchester United holds the FA Cup once again, it has taken them 12 years, been a while hey. Glad Van Gaal (LVG) had something to show…

Cholesterol

Good morning beautiful earthlings! A friend of mine had recently asked me to do some research on the topic of cholesterol – more specifically, the relationship between dietary and body cholesterol, and the link between the two, should there be any – so that’s where today’s topic has stemmed from. Being of Indian descent, with…

All Suited Up!

This past weekend was an interesting one. I was asked to deliver a speech at the wedding reception of one of my closest Cousins. There was no question of whether I’d be up to doing so or not; she is, after all, a sister-figure whom I’ve always had a ton of admiration for. I looked…

Fiber

Good evening readers! So we all know what fiber is and what it does for the body. We know exactly where to get it from and the different types. Haha, alright, ill stop there. From my experiences, people don’t know what fiber is, and don’t worry, I was one of you up until very recently….

Spirulina

So I’ve recently been introduced to a new superfood, spirulina. The one to do this introduction was my girlfriend, Yuvi, you all remember her right? Good. In her words, “if you take this you don’t need to take anything else.” I doubt this, but I don’t doubt the acclaimed benefits of this green cyanobacterium. For…

The Universe Speaks

Mothers’ Day – A single day in the year devoted to the amazing women we call our Moms. This isn’t necessarily something I agree with; I prefer showing my Mom how much she means to me on more than one occasion out of a possible 365 on any given year. So my heart did sink…

Give Me My COFFEE!

It’s 05:14, you’ve just hit that snooze button for the third time and your alarm is about to go off for the fourth. You wake up, with crust in your eyes wishing with all your will it was a Saturday. You make your ascent from that beautiful and seductive cushion you’ve been laying on for…

Going Green

Winter is coming!!! (for the GOT fans) I know, it’s a bit ironic, going green as winter approaches. I’ve surely lost a few marbles – in Benoni, where i found myself this morning with my iPad dying on me – on my way to work. Yeah, the struggle is real #firstworldproblems! Before i continue, just…
