Diet is more important than exercise

Diet and exercise are both equally important to have good health.  However, diet is more important than exercising. We are what we eat. 

For more details, you can read the following on why diet is more important than exercising.

1 can of coke takes minutes to drink. To burn the calories of 1 can of coke takes at least 1 hour of exercise.  So would you choose to indulgent in minutes of enjoyment and sweat out 1 hour to burn the calories you just drink down?  You decide.  For me, i am lazy so i prefer to drink plain water and i bring my own water out daily. :)

I have started adding REFRESH to my plain water since Oct 2013 and lately change my drinking container to stainless steel instead of BPA plastic bottle.

 Do you know we can keep fit through our diet?  Not telling you to skip meals but TO EAT WISER. By having high fibre diet and watching your calories help in weight management and maintaining general good health.

Listen to the following to understand more about how much calories are we taking in daily (eg a cup of milkshake is equivalent the total calories we need in a day) and what are the good dieting habits with little exercise to maintain good health.

Why run along the road and breathing in carbon monoxide, isn't it causing more harm than good?  Exercising in the gym with air refreshener (http://wholesomesuperfood.blogspot.sg/2013/09/danger-lurks-in-sir-refresheners.html) is causing more harm too.

BE WISE.

This is my high fibre breakfast daily.

Instead of drinking plain water,  these are what I drink daily. Either 1 each day.

RECIPE: Encore agar agar with E-SWEET


Ingredients as above. It can make abt 120 pieces bite size agar agar.  

1. Take a bunch of pandan leaves and boil together with 700ml water for 15-30min. Then turn fire low,  add 4 sachets of E-Sweet and a sachet agar agar mix and stir slowly.
2. Add 3 sachets of ENCORE to 300ml of room temperature water and stir well.
3. Let the liquid from 1 cool off a little and add liquid from 2. Mix well.

Encore
The heart and liver are vital organs that work round the clock to help the body to function. The heart works as a pump to send blood through all parts of the body. The liver is basically a filter and cleanser of the bloodstream. Both heart and liver are important to a healthy immune system. The pumping heart moves blood containing immune cells, oxygen and nutrients, to all parts of the body. The liver contains immune cells that help the body to fight infections.

Encore is specially formulated to nourish the heart and liver with antioxidant-rich plant foods so they can perform optimally—and ultimately keep the immune system at peak performance.

E-SWEET
E-SWEET is a sweetener that contains steviol glycosides (the sweet components of the stevia leaf) and maltodextrin. One package of E-SWEET is equivalent in sweetness to about 4 level teaspoons of cane sugar (sucrose) but has only 3% of the calories and no significant effect on blood sugar level. What’s more, it tastes like cane sugar. Substitute cane sugar with E-SWEET for a natural sweet taste that does not burden your health.

Both children had sudden fever

After coming back from half day cc on 3rd Dec 2013, their fever gradually went up fr almost 38 to 38.5 degree.

I started giving them the following.
1.30pm - a can of Millennium Sparkling to share before taking their nap

4pm - 1 sachet of CELEBRATION to share before dinner

7pm - 2 sachets of CELEBRATION to share before bed.

1045pm - 2 sachets of CELEBRATION to share before I sleep

4th dec 2013, no more fever!  I keep them home for the day and continue to give the following:
130pm - 1 sachet of CELEBRATION to share
830pm - 1 sachet of CELEBRATION to share

5th dec 2013, off to school!

What's CELEBRATION?

Usually when the kids have fever,  it takes 2 days and 8 sachets of Millennium.  However this time I ran out of Millennium,  I use CELEBRATION and it works faster!
