It’s getting close to my favourite time of year. No, not Christmas (but I’m definitely no Scrooge) and not New Years either. Even though most of us can’t wait to see the back of 2020, the strange and terrible events of this year do not stop the changing of the seasons.
Do you often feel wiped out before your day has even begun? Your alarm goes off and it feels like a knife cutting through your head. After successfully smashing the snooze button a number of times your eyes accustom to the reality of being once again conscious and it’s time to rise from your slumber and get started with your day. But there’s a catch.
Exercise and Chocolate. Although they seem to be on opposite ends of a spectrum, we have all linked them together more times than we would care to admit. It’s like there’s a secret back door in our minds that links said spectrum together in a circle behind closed doors, which is where we eat most of our chocolate. Apart from being a delicious form of indulgence that we’ve earned after sweating our ass off in the gym, chocolate and exercise combine in a way that you might not have thought about and that could be very beneficial to your health.
Peas, peas, they’re good for your heart, the more you eat the more protein you get. Right? Well, I guess you could say that about about any vegetable. Even chomping your way through 17oz of broccoli will give you a healthy 20g of protein¹, but I’m yet to see a diet plan that recommends 8 servings of those tiny trees per day (roughly 3 whole heads).
So, here it is. Our first blog. We aren’t going to sugar coat it and say this new baby of ours is the most beautiful one to ever be born (but you can’t ever call a newborn ugly, just remember that!) but we are going to say that we’re proud. Proud to announce our coming out party!
