Good Health = Good Life

Fun things to eat and drink if you visit Scotland...

Because I miss home…

1. Irn Bru.

Not even a stereotype. We Scots drink a shedload of shit. Packed full of sugar and a guaranteed hangover cure (we swear by it). Of course, some Scottish people are actually concerned about their health so we do have sugar free options. They taste just as good. We actually have it on tap in pubs and people often mix it with vodka. It’s great!

2. Haggis. 

Now I’m not a huge fan personally. Haggis is made from sheep innards wrapped in intestines. It sounds gross but there’s a fascinating story behind it. It came about in the 18th Century when farmers were struggling to yield crops in the harsh Scottish climate so the mentality was very much waste not want not, so they used the leftovers from the sheep that they couldn’t sell, mixed it with oats and spices and baked it. We have it on the 25th January, to celebrate our poet, Robert Burns’ birthday. He wrote a poem about it, called Adress To a Haggis. We eat it with mashed potato and mashed turnips (we call it Haggis, Neeps and Tatties).

3. Square Sausage

It’s actually known as Lorne sausage and I have no idea what it’s made from but it doesn’t taste like normal sausage. It’s awesome and you have to try it. Order a Scottish breakfast and you’ll get one of these. They’re great because they actually fit into a roll without making a massive mess. 

4. Tablet

Not actual tablets. We have a reputation for being junkies but aren’t actually. It’s a dessert made from condensed milk and it’s amazing. Again, full of sugar, so probably not recommended for diabetics! It’s similar to fudge but crumblier and much better. It’s dry, compared to fudge. It’s very sickly, which is probably a good thing because it’s so full of sugar! It’s my ultimate comfort food. 

5. Macaroni Pies. 

They sound horrific but they’re actually really good. I can’t really say more than that because it is what it says on the tin! 

6. Shortbread

Crumbly biscuits, made with butter. Very nice, very moreish and great to dip into tea!

7. Tattie Scones

Sometimes known as potato scones, these are baked potato mixed with like bread or something. Again, they’re a staple of Scottish breakfasts and they’re great for mopping up egg yolk. People eat them in rolls with fried eggs. 

8. Macaroons

Not the French kind. These were the originals. I always used to be told that they were made with mashed potato but they’re not! It’s a sort of coconut ice wrapped in chocolate and sprinkled with dessicated coconut. They’re not as good as tablet but definitely worth a try!

9. Tunnock’s Tea Cakes

They’re basically like those marshmallow cakes with jam in the middle and a biscuit base, wrapped in milk chocolate. Not my personal favourite but a Scottish classic and Tunnock’s is a big Scottish brand. 

10. Tunnock’s Caramel Wafers

Accept no substitutions. These are amazing. They’re like kit kats but with caramel and they have vanilla essence in them so they smell awesome too. It’s hard not to like these!

So there we have it, the top ten Scottish foods that you have to try should you visit.

purrhaps some food for an autistic magpie who loves spice? (not necessarily hot spice, but strong flavours) also maybe stuff that is either fancy-type or fingerfood (both eould be best but i understand if you cant find anything) [side note: i have a big sweet tooth too]

@theatrecollective

Heya! Sure thing :3 Magpies are opportunistic feeders so I went for a collection of fancy finger foods that are both veggie and meat. 

Hope you like it! :) If not feel free to hit me back up and I’ll find some other stuff <3 Cheers~

Mrs Lindu, 96, is the oldest gudeg vendor in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Gudeg is a traditional dish, made from young jackfruit cooked with coconut milk and spices, wrapped in banana leaf. Mrs Lindu has been selling gudeg since her adolescence. Yogyakarta is the province with the highest life expectancy in Indonesia.

People all around the world are living longer today than ever before – but the extent to which everyone can benefit from this depends heavily on health. Healthy ageing means having the freedom to continue to be and do what we have reason to value as we age.

Post a photo of you - or someone you know - embracing old age as part of the World Health Organization campaign to break down the stereotypes that we often associate with ageing. Tag it with #YearsAhead and your photo might be featured!

wander---woman  asked:

Hi there, I love your blog so much. Can you please give me some advice? I've been vegetarian for more than a decade and I've been vegan for about 6 months. I've noticed I feel more tired lately. I try to eat lots of beans and legumes for protein

and I don’t eat junk food, but somehow I still feel lethargic. Thanks in advance.

Hey there yay-its-jay!

Anyone who makes a change in their diet (even a positive change) will experience the symptoms of that change. Most people, however, have a few rough days, typically at the beginning. Some individuals experience detox symptoms aches, headaches, fatigue, irritability, your typical flu-like experience. Others may have no physical pains, but they have mental and emotional challenges.  Some people feel crappy for weeks as their body fights through withdrawal caused after years of food addictions.

If you’ve ever quit caffeine, coffee or soda, you know what I’m talking about. You don’t think you’re hooked until you try to go without it and BAM! A headache hits you like a train two days in.

Here are some foods that give us a lot of energy:

1. Hemp seeds: Providing you with omega-3 fats, they’re great for sprinkling on cereal or into smoothies.

2. Chia seeds: Filled with fiber, they are perfect mixed in with your morning oatmeal.

3. Kale: This magnesium-loaded veggie is delicious in salads or steamed.

4. Sea vegetables: A natural source of sodium, sea vegetables offer you a boost in focus as well as energy. Try nori as a possible source.

5. Tempeh: Easily digested, this protein ranks as one of the best when it comes to plant-based power. Marni suggests marinating with cider vinegar, lemon juice and coconut oil and then using in salads or wraps.

6. Coconut water and coconut oil: Provide your body with electrolytes. Because coconut oil contains medium chain fats, it gives you energy and nourishment.

7. Green Smoothies: gives you almost every nutrient you need and the digestion is lighter.

8. Goji berries: Use in trail mix to fuel your workout or add to a smoothie. These berries provide you with protein, fiber and antioxidants.

9. Cacao: Mix with cereal for a kick-start breakfast or add to a smoothie.

10. Increase your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables: We are biologically designed to eat fruit and veg and we need the enzymes and fibre to keep our systems working fine. Increasing the amount of raw foods also makes a big difference and we really need to be starting with 50% raw if we want to really increase energy.

I made a raw vegan quesadilla at work today. The quesadilla wrap is coconut based, it holds together the pinenut pesto, spicy faux-mince, cashew sour cream, and sunflower seed ricotta.The wrap is super easy to make and the best part about it is it’s versatility. It could easily be used as ‘pasta’ sheets, dumplings, spring rolls, samosas, the list goes on.

Here’s how to make them:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups young coconut meat
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 2 tbs psyllium husk 
  • spice/flavour of choice (we used a tsp of turmeric for the yellow colour). Some other good options are red peppers, spinach, basil, or you can substitute the coconut meat with red cabbage for incredibly vivid purple wraps.

Directions:
Blend all except for the psyllium husk until smooth, then add psyllium and blend until well mixed. Spread evenly onto 4 Teflex sheets and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 6 hours. You’ll know when they’re done when they are completely dry but still pliable. Carefully peel them off the Teflex sheets and cut up into any shape or size you want. Enjoy!

since going vegan from vegetarian, I've noticed that I definitely don't have as much energy throughout the day as I did before going vegan. I eat oatmeal and a banana almost every morning and still feel slow and unenergetic afterwards. any suggestions on what to add to my diet or change?

Other than fruits, veg, seeds, grains… the packaged foods I buy sometimes are Ezekiel tortillas, teriyaki sauce, rice paper wraps, coconut curry sauce (by a brand called “umi’s kitchen”), daiya “cheese”, coconut aminos, “chef destinations” Italian herb pasta sauce, “field roast” smoked apple sage faux sausage, & “amazing grass” organic wheat grass.

kotuchna  asked:

I've been a strict vegetarian for 7 years with long periods of veganism. I have issues with hair loss and sever low energy (fainting even). My doctors can't seem to pin point my issues or treat them. It always goes back to nutrition. - continued...

I feel like I make the vegan community look bad though, & reinforce my families beliefs that my lifestyles isn’t healthy. I don’t eat much processed food. Green smoothies every day. Multivitamin, B vitamin complex, along with flax seed powder..- I’m trying so hard but so sick of being sick. Any advice from anyone would be wonderful!

Hi there! I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling. Maybe you’re not eating enough. Also maybe the food combinations you’re doing probably are missing something, always make sure to combine greens with Vitamin C since is the only way Iron can be absorbed properly, lack of iron can cause fatigue, lack of energy leading to anemia.

Also do you make exercise? That is important too. Any other advice? :)
