We ran every day, for 31 days. At least a mile a day. But why the hell did we do that?? We’re members of The Running Bug website and they had a challenge, organized by running gear brand, Ronhill.

This oxidising is causing cell damage, which can trigger cancer and other degenerative diseases, but more importantly the damaged cells produce a waste formed of their freed molecules that have unpaired electrons. These molecules are called free radicalsRead More →



Going to various places around the world, made it clear to us that each region has a specific set of oils handier than others, so there aren’t really rules that apply everywhere. There’s definitely the economic point of view, some oils cost differently around different parts of the world. There is one thing we don’t do anymore and that is deep frying. This doesn’t mean you should’t do it at all, but try to minimise it to as less as possible. And by that I mean monthly. Or even less than that :).
