Here's the latest Finemore's Five For Friday for you. If you've got anything you'd like me to cover in these weekly emails or any questions please just ask and I'll do my best to answer them for you.
This week I have been mostly ...
Organic Fennel. I love the taste and it gives a great crunch to salads. When celery can be a bit bland, fennel knocks it out the park. You can roast it and it’s yummy but this week I made a salad with organic: cherry tomatoes, fennel, chick peas, squeezed lemon, avocado oil, chopped garlic and Big Tony’s Pesto. Fennel also tastes great with Oysters.
to an album called m_o_d_e_s by Tomemitsu. Lo-fi music to chill by. Calm.
To make sure that I have 13+ hrs of gut rest per day. Your gut works hard digesting all the food that you do or more commonly don’t chew enough. It needs a break. Relative or intermittent fasting is good for you. It helps you sensitise to insulin and regulate your fat-burning mechanisms. It has even been shown to help reduce cancer risk in some studies. So I’m playing with eating only 2 meals a day, breakfast and late lunch or lunch and early dinner. Ideally if you eat your evening meal at 7pm, you should not eat or drink anything but water until at least 9am the next day. Try it and see how you feel and how your brain works.
Nothing like a good hug. Here’s a technique that I heard from Wim Hof (the Ice Man). Wim throws his Left arm over the shoulder of the recipient placing his head on the right side of theirs and his heart (to heart) right next to theirs. Do it. Hug more often.
If you’re a man’s man. Do it more. Especially with other men. You need it more than most. See how your relationships and your life changes.
Plus if you’ve never seen the 70’s TV series ‘Hart to Hart’ then you should. Genius.
Squat Thrust. We all did them at school. Easy to do. Great for your core, upper body strength and helps those surfers out there with their surfer get ups. Try 10-20 every day as part of your daily 3 minute workout.
Until next time,
