HOW TO READ FOOD LABELS

Simply speaking, If it has a label, avoid it!.
The longer the list of ingredients, the further you should stay away. 

A simple way of deciding if the product is healthy or not is the 3 R’s principle

  1. Can you READ and understand all of the ingredients?
  2. Are all of the ingredients REAL food?
  3. Could you REPRODUCE this at home yourself?

Read the ingredients list first, ingredients are listed in order of weight so the ingredient listed first is present in the largest amount. So if sugar is the first ingredient it means that sugar is the main ingredient.

I THINK I’LL JUST BE HAPPY TODAY!

Is happiness a matter of luck and out of our control or 
can we create our own happiness? 

This is a topic I’ve been reading about a fair bit lately as I’ve started to take more control of the direction of my life and my own happiness. I’ve come to the conclusion that although not as simple as it sounds we really do create our own happiness mostly by choosing happiness. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have days when I’m angry or frustrated or sad or just plainly pissed off but I do feel more in control of my feelings and am aware of the fact that I’m really choosing the feelings I’m feeling. I’ve summarised my “Happiness Strategy” below for you to start to manage your happiness too.
