[SHEFFIELD] Happy official opening day Pitcher & Piano! 🎉🥂🎉🥂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are a few shots from their press launch night where I devoured an impressive array of canapes consisting of nachos, halloumi burgers, sweet potato fries, butterfly king prawns, mini fish & chips, chocolate brownies and a whole host of other moreish bits 🤤
The decor is all rather 'instaworthy' and the building itself is a real beaut, you'll find it smack-bang in middle of the city centre in the former NUM building next to Turtle Bay. There are 18 P&Ps across the UK and each has its own unique character, you'll never see two that look the same. Drop in for post-work drinks or pre-night out shenanigans - can confirm the cocktails will hit you in the sweet spot 🍹
Let's give 'em a big warm welcome to Sheffield eh?

Eat more plants 🌱
No matter how you slice and dice it, the foundation for all human diets should be centered around plants, especially vegetables.
While the plate on the right may be a little extreme on the plant matter for some, I wanted to make this comparison clear.
If are someone that is still hungry after a meal, adding more volume in the form of vegetables is a great place to start!
Plants contain fiber, and fiber plus protein are a must to stabilize blood sugar and increase satiation.
In addition, plants contain antioxidants, phytochemicals, and polyphenols, all of which are essential for optimal health.
Phytochemicals are exclusively found in plants and can be thought of as these biologically active compounds of the plants immune system which give fruits and vegetables their bright color.
The more phytochemicals we consume, the better our body is able to combat oxidative stress, reduce stress induced apoptosis, decrease inflammation, and protect the gut.
As you can see, the meal on the left is meat focused and lacks an abundance of fiber, color, variety.
Some people on Paleo follow a more carnivorous template and completely omit vegetables, which can be an issue since vegetables contain fermentable fibers that feed our trillions of gut bacteria.
On the right, you will see a more balanced meal that includes:
1️⃣ Lots of vegetables
2️⃣ An abundance of diverse color
3️⃣ Animal protein is more of a condiment and makes up <20% of the meal
When creating a balanced plate, aim to include fiber, greens, fat, and protein at every meal. Fiber and greens should make up the majority of your plate.
We are all unique individuals, and therefore, have different goals and needs. What works for you may not work for me. Just like what works for me may not work for you.
When it comes to animal products, consider the source. Choose quality over quantity. Conventionally raised animal products are much higher in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids compared to wild or pastured animal products which are higher in anti-inflammatory omega-3s.
