Crap Food = Crap Mood

How plant-based do we need to eat? Studies comparing levels of IGF-1 in meat-eaters vs. vegetarians vs. vegans suggest that we should lean toward eliminating animal products from our diets altogether. This is supported by the new study in which the thousands of American vegans studied not only had lower rates of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, but significantly lower cancer risk as well.
This makes sense when you consider the research done by Drs. Dean Ornish and Nobel Prize winner Elizabeth Blackburn; they found that a vegan diet caused more than 500 genes to change in only three months, turning on genes that prevent disease and turning off genes that cause breast cancer, heart disease, prostate cancer, and other illnesses. This is empowering news, given that most people think they are a victim of their genes, helpless to stave off some of the most dreaded diseases.
We aren’t helpless at all; in fact, the power is largely in our hands. It’s on our forks, actually.
Cancer is never a matter of ‘chance’ or ‘luck.’ It’s a matter of cause and effect. Genes can be turned on or off by food and lifestyle choices.

Running is not, as it so often seems, only about what you did in your last race or about how many miles you ran last week. It is, in a much more important way, about community, about appreciating all the miles run by other runners, too.

I signed UP to ‘Garmin Connect’ this week.
The tool is web based and I am very glad I finally got around to joining.
The layout is intuitive and it is wonderful to share running data with friends. I am using the tool to track my training for the Brisbane marathon which is taking place in August 2013.

I knocked UP a lovely simple smoothie t’uther day.
I just used:
— Lady Fingers
— Basil Leaves
The smoothie was very fresh tasting and went down real well after a morning half marathon run. The Sorrel has a lemon taste to it ;)
Play not only keeps us young but also maintains our perspective about the relative seriousness of things. Running is play, for even if we try hard to do well at it, it is a relief from everyday cares.

Larry made me a Sugar Cane Juice with Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice the other day. I really liked it. I have never seen anyone @ the markets selling this combination before.
