F&V Header Cropped WM Higher

In the media of late there has been a number of articles published that I just have to share with you. There is so much information hitting the media on healthy eating, low carbohydrate diets, Ketosis, no sugar, low sugar, reduced sugar and new food products that I want to keep you up to date. To do this I’m going to start to post links to the latest information and articles that I think may be of interest to expand your knowledge.

It doesn’t matter what country you live in, the articles related to studies on health apply to us all. The information you learn about healthy eating provides knowledge and motivation to improve your own health, but will also provide knowledge to teach your children and help gift them with lifelong health and education on the correct food choices. The choices we make as parents for our own health influences our children and how they teach their children.

Here are a list of articles definately worth the read. I’ll be building this list over the coming months. I encourage you to look further into topics that you find most interesting or in my case disturbing as some of the articles listed below will challenge your thinking as the new research often conflicts with what we have been told growing up.

Hi Everyone!! Today’s articles continue the topic of waste, specifically packaging and plastic waste. I’ve found a few articles that you should definitely read. Our planet is changing as our habits as consumers catch up to us. We all need to be aware of our environment and the impact that we have as we really are a Global village!!! 

8 Million tonnes of plastic is entering our oceans every year and we need to do something about it. The prediction at this stage is that there will be more plastic than ocean life in our seas by 2050. Can you imagine this happening and what impact this will have on our marine environment and on our children’s future? 

This article is inspiring. It’s incredible what one person with passion, drive and commitment can achieve.

This is fascinating. Another approach to our plastic waste problem.

How can we help reduce the amount of plastic that goes into the ocean? There are so many small things like ensuring you put your rubbish in the bin. Garbage that is dropped on the ground often ends up in storm water and flows out to sea with a good rainfall. Recyle as much as you can and use re-usable bags instead of plastic bags when shopping. Take your rubbish with you when you go to a park, beach or travelling. Avoid small plastic toys and straws that get used once and then thrown out.

Here is a great article that has some good ideas –
