StReSSed to DeSTrESs (Part 1: Nutrition)

Do you fall sick? Is your overall health compromised (Do you have high blood pressure? Diabetes? High cholesterol? Arthritis? Weight problems?)

Those are signs that stress has overtaken you.

Your overall energy is not in balance.


To keep your overall energy balanced, you must learn to merge both the mind and the heart. The heart and the mind both need to work in tandem and not against one another.

You develop anxiety if you live too much in your mind, as you try to control and dominate your life.

You develop depression and lethargy while living too much in your heart, as you try to cope the rigours of emotions.

Important point to ponder:

Many missed this one important point -

         "Only YOU can stress yourself."

And that, most of the times,

         " We GIVE others permission to stress us out."


Be in control NOW.



1. Room temperature water rids body toxins well. If you are dehydrated, your body temperature will increase, and this is easy target for infections etc.

2. Ice-cubed cold water increases your caloric burning capacity by about 10 calories as it churns it to body temperature. Good for those who are looking for that extra push for weight management.

3. High water content fruits and vegetables eg watermelon and cucumber refreshes your body.

4. Keep your body Ph Balance stable by limiting your intake of spicy, oily and high saturated fat food.

5. Dont eat leftovers food

6. Dont eat food fried with used/re-used oil.

7. Dont eat vegetables that had been cooked but laid out for a long time in the open air. Most of the vitamins are gone.

8. Processed food with its added excess sugar, salt and fats will throw your digestive system out of whack. Avoid them.

9. Different preparations for same foods on different days

Protein such as white meat including poultry and especially fish, gives you good energy. Cooking in gravy, lightly sauteing, grilled, smoked, roast your Norwegian salmon (my favourite!).

Especially during this fasting period of Ramadhan, recommended to be eaten during Sahor because of its satiety plus point as well as at Iftar because of its gentle texture, gentle on a fasting stomach.

10. I recommended brown rice and wholemeal breads. It is not refined but contains the nutritious goodness of fibre and vitamins. And they are unprocessed as compared to white rice or white bread. Good for bowel movement, and you de-stress your stomach from digesting refined sugars.

Yours always in good health,

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
