Why to choose an organic wine

Organic wines, as the name implies, are produced organically and have several benefits over conventional wines. The organic wine may be more expensive than the conventional ones and there may not be any conspicuous health benefits apparently, but you’re definitely making an environmental friendly and a better choice in the long run.

Challenge yourself for two days a week!

Do not blame the authorities placing some strict rules on alcohol consumption: units and other guidelines, they should be treated as an advice. Yet different countries have slightly varying set of limits, be it daily 3 units, or not exceeding 28 units a week. However everyone agrees that you should have at least 1-2 alcohol…

Why should you try a sensible diet?

I did a few attempts (successful as well) on dieting. Yet sometimes you feel that refusing a nice satisfying meal, especially in the evening, is bringing you and your life slightly down. That is what we think. I started noticing that it is a struggle of your mind over the body. Can I allow myself…

They are not cooking and eating veg?

Have you ever wondered, how to motivate one to cook and eat vegetables? Probably not just nagging ‘eat veg, eat veg’!

My own experience with 5×2 diet

This 5×2 diet is quite well known, so I would be brief: the idea is to appoint two days during the week, when you fast. It also doesn’t mean you need to drink only water. As a guideline you should slash your daily calorie intake by four – so for women the recommended one is…

A promise to myself

When asked about the actions how to drink less wine (I think back in 2007-2008), I have come up with an alternative solution: to establish a promise that I need to keep for myself. Basically, the idea is to allow yourself to drink with your dinners (of course when there is a suitable match for…

A thought about workplace pensions

I can see advertisements and some further information at work with regards to the new workplace pension schemes. It got me thinking about it – should I save more and get even more as it is matched by the company, or shall I contribute the minimum amount instead? The answer is not simple, as we…

Flipping failed deliveries

We shop online, because we do not want to carry that case of wine ourselves, also to choose the wines more carefully and from a wider range, yet it doesn’t mean that we should wait for that delivery from 8 am to 7pm at the address (usually home I presume) without any trip to a…

Wine by Freud

I always loved Cabernet Sauvignon. I remember the days when I was opening a bottle and all these names- Merlot, Shiraz meant almost nothing to me, I was just learning. Ah, no< I was not even learning at that stage, just enjoying the drink. These days just knowing that it is generally associated with abundant…

My genes

It is funny to write this small blame and think that you wish so much that your mother won’t read this. Or maybe it is just sad to blame your extra pounds in the midsection on a thing you cannot even see – your genes? I tend to say that I tend to believe that…

When I was called fat

I still remember the day I was called fat. I also imagine that it was not the first time, I was overweight for quite a few years during my first Uni studies, but that was definitely a wake up call when it happened to my face! That first Uni of mine was a culmination of…

Welcome to Blame it!

In the 16th century Paracelsus, a Swiss physician, said ‘wine is a food, a medicine, and a poison, it is just a question of dose’. What is your dose? What is your secret to a healthy balance between the pleasures of wine, good company and delicious food and staying healthy? This section is an invitation…
