Celebrating a Milestone

We recently reached 1000 likes on our facebook page. Considering when we started we honestly thought 40 people would join max –  this was a very exciting day for us. A friend called us and said ‘I remember when you actually reached 40 likes and The Nutrition Guru almost literally fainted with excitement!’

So when The Nutrition Guru actually realised that the 1000th like had ticked over, she went nuts. Dancing to ‘Gangnam Style’ she started jiggling and singing her own version of the song ‘Guru Style’.

It’s a small achievement but it has been a tough year and we have both learned to find happiness in the smallest of things. It is inspiring and refreshing to see The Nutrition Guru so excited.

We never started The Nutrition Guru and The Chef to gain a following, but simply to share. We just love sharing our life, our fun, our recipes and our nutrition tips with everyone. Thanks for the support.

Take a leaf out of The Nutrition Guru’s book – Don’t be afraid to get out there and do a bum wobble – Guru Style!!!

Unhealthy food costs you your health

A lil’ somthing to think about…

There are many things that come into play when we decide which foods to buy.

Convenience

Time

Culture

Beliefs

Accessibility

and

Cost to name a few.

For most of us, cost plays a major role in what we do and don’t eat.

But don’t let cost be an EXCUSE for eating bad food. It is easy to use cost as an excuse for choosing a mars bar over an apple or french fries over a sandwich, but think about the cost it will have on your health in the long run.

Last time I looked trips to the GP, cholesterol  and blood pressure medications and weight loss programs weren’t cheap.

When you pay for healthy food, you buy health. When you pay for unhealthy food, you buy disease.

Stay happy and healthy, and don’t use cost as an excuse.
