Looking forward to returning to Glasgow for the fourth and final stop on my Author Your Life book tour.
On the 24th of November you can attend the educational seminar “Become The Hero of Your Story”. I will be teaching principles and strategies from my latest book and you will also be able to buy advanced signed copies of the book before it goes on sale to the general public on December 1st.
This event is for people who are looking to change a long-standing lifestyle, career or relationship that they are no longer happy with, but have been frustrated in their efforts to change so far.
The event is free to attend. If you would like to come along, let me know in the comments below and I can send you a link.
I asked for A Glasgow Salad 😂 I should have known better. What on earth made me think that Glasgow’s culinary Skills had moved forward from the deep fried mars Bar. Nonetheless the chicken was a real chicken breast 😁
What’s your favourite meal of the day?
For me it’s B.R.U.N.C.H. 🥓🍳🥑
Its a Sunday treat and it has everything I could want - poached eggs and avocado YUM (I know, someone slap me for being too millennial). Last Sunday we went to @gustoandrelish_ for this heavenly egg stack.
In fact, I just love eggs. 🍳🥚Scrambled, fried, boiled, poached, I could eat them for every meal. I’m always conscious because too many is bad for your health right?
✨Let’s take a look at the evidence ✨
At around 70 cals, eggs are a rich source of protein and vitamins. A large egg contains about 6g of protein. They also give us Vit D (which aids bone health and the immune system) and choline (which helps metabolism and liver function)
⭐️🍳Like yours sunny side up? Egg yolks also can be good for the eyes; they are significant sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, which have been found to reduce the risk of cataracts, the leading cause of blindness in later life.
✨But it’s no yolk (sorry) that their yummy yellow centre is stacked full of cholesterol. A typical egg contains a whopping 186 milligrams. That's more than half the previous recommended daily consumption (since 2015 these have been changed because of a lack of scientific evidence).
⭐️In a study of nearly 1/2 a million Chinese adults over 9 years, it was found that up to 1 egg a day correlated to a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.
💫Another study found that eating 12 eggs a week for 3 months didn’t increase cardiovascular risk factors for people with pre- and type 2 diabetes.
So the latest advice?
✨Know. Your. Risk. Factors.✨
In general, people at risk of heart disease or diabetes should pay close attention to the amount of cholesterol in their diet, according to leading researchers. But for someone who is veggie and does t eat red meat, eggs may be the only source of cholesterol and they should maybe even include more!
💫The American Heart Association recommends 1 egg per day as part of a healthy diet.
🍎And here we were thinking it was an 🍏 a day!
Pretty chuffed with how these turned out after I added some colour! They are in the shop now! Any other ideas of places to draw in Glasgow (or beyond...Edinburgh?! 😳)? I have a few pubs in mind but that's because I spend the majority of my weekends in them 💕 #ibelongtoGlasgow#glasgowgirl
