HI, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
In our blogs we typically talk about the things that money can’t buy, which are: Health, Time, and Love. Today, I want to talk about something that is affecting our health that you may not be aware of.
I am talking about the Known toxic chemicals in our food supply.
While many of you may be following the latest sports scores, Hollywood scandal or the political issues that are happening, did you catch the news that can affect your health and the health of your family? I bet you, most of you probably missed it. It was buried amongst all the glorious mumble jumble of politics, scandals and sports. But I read it, and I’m here to share my thoughts with you.
There were two very important reports that just came out last week. One was from EWG which stands for The Environmental Working Group. EWG released the latest results of their testing for potentially hazardous chemicals in our drinking water across the...
As fall comes along, we watch the leaves fall and the days get shorter, we are also heading towards Halloween. Every year, on October 31st, thrill seekers would make their way to haunted houses looking for spirits, ghosts, the supernatural, and whatever else you could think of.
Hi. I am Minna from the Foolish Couple. And in today’s episode, I’m going to talk about FEAR.
Halloween is really about being scared and facing your fear. So, what is fear? I think we all know what FEAR is, and we all have our own fears. But have you ever counted how many of your FEARS actually become real?
In other words, most of the fears come from our imaginations. What I’m saying is that FEAR, stands for Fantasized Events Appearing Real.
As humans we are fearful of different things. Andy is afraid of spiders because he watched the movie Arachnophobia and every time, he sees a spider, it reminds him of the movie.
I am afraid of snakes, even though I have...

As fall officially rowed in September 1st, most people close off their pools for next summer.
As you can see my pool is super clean and it’s this time of year that I actually do the most swimming when the water gets colder and colder.
A lot of you may not know, but I do have degenerative arthritis that is particularly bad in fall and winter as temperatures drop, and that is one of the reasons I refuse to travel back to Vancouver or any other place that is cold for that matter for the next few months.
And anyone with arthritis can tell you how their joints hurt more when it gets cold.
Swimming in cold water or Cold Thermogenesis has the benefits to reduce inflammation and to boost recovery. And oddly enough a long enough...
Today’s topic is one that is close to my heart and it is one of the biggest problems that couple’s face. This is true for both new couples and especially old couples that have been together for a long time. The single biggest mistake that puts a wedge in a couple’s relationship is arguments. Specifically, unresolved arguments.
Hi, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
For decades, all I remember about my parents are their arguments. Throughout my childhood, I don’t think there was actually a single day that my parents did not have a fight. What they fought about was always something very trivial. But as a kid, I thought that it was normal for couples to argue all the time.
The fighting, arguments, and the bickering never stopped until more than 4 decades later. And that was when my dad’s Parkinson’s got some bad that we had to put him into a senior assisted living home so that he can get the proper nursing care that...
HI I'm Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
Today we are going to talk about the Thoughts and Beliefs that you tell yourself.
In the Success Principles by Jack Canfield, who is the author of the Chicken Soup of the Soul book series, he talks about 68 principles of success. And you can take these principles and apply them to all areas of your life and they will ALWAYS work. Whether you want to improve your career, your finances, your relationships, your health or your contributions. Whatever they are, these Success Principles will work for everyone every time.
As long as you work the principles, the principles will work for you.
You see, you are creating your experiences, your success, the quality of your relationships, and your health by your thoughts and beliefs (beliefs are no more than thoughts you have conditioned yourself to think over and over), the visual images you focus on (internally and externally), the resulting emotions they create, and your...
Hi Its Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
The other day I talked about, how the younger generation is getting chronic conditions earlier and earlier.
Diabesity, or people who are obese and diabetic, is now becoming an epidemic problem with the younger generation.
A recent study shows that people aged 25-49 is at higher risk for certain types of cancer than people over 50. These cancers are showing up earlier in life, affecting their quality of life. And these statistics get worse for the next younger generation.
You are seeing younger and younger children that are not just slightly overweight but obese. According to the CDC, the percentage of children and adolescents affected by obesity has more than tripled since the 1970s. When I was growing up, there may be 1 fat kid in class. Nowadays 1 out of every 5 kids is overweight or obese.
In the past, next generations always lived longer than older generations due to new advances in medical technology and drugs.
Hi its Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
I get asked all the time, what is the best age to start worrying about my longevity.
Longevity refers to your physical health, mental health, energy, vibrancy and freedom of mobility.
This week we are sharing our 1-week liver cleanse for Clearer skin, leaner body and no cravings to friends and family. But the cleanse is so much more.
It’s the first step towards longevity and preventing Chronic illnesses.
Chronic illnesses are no longer an old person disease. It used to be that you don’t get Chronic conditions such as depression, psychotic conditions, hyperactivity, hypertension, high cholesterol, Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis and type II diabetes until you are older like 60 years and older.
However, that is no longer the case, millennials born between early 80’s to mid 90’s are besieged by chronic illness, with 54% of the generation's respondents reporting that they've been diagnosed...

Imagine this. You are sick, and you are broke. The only free exercise you can get is to walk along the beach. You go to the beach and start walking. With your luck, high tide comes in and your feet get wet. But, wait, what’s that? Something shiny washes up the beach and lands right at your feet.
You bend down and pick it up. It looks like an antique. Maybe it’s worth something, but it's so filthy that you rub it with your hand to get a better look. And “POOF”. A genie comes out.
But not the genie that you see in...
We normally don't eat breakfast. And when we do 'break our fast', we'd try to make something that will keep us energized through the day.
You may have noticed that when you eat a heavy breakfast filled with processed carbohydrates and sugars, your day is pretty much ruined. Eating traditional pancakes made with processed flour would leave you feeling sleepy, sluggish, and unsatisfied.
Therefore, we come up with our own version of keto-friendly, gluten-free pancakes. Simply replace processed white flour with coconut flour, and substitute white sugar with zero-calorie monkfruit sweetener.
The results are amazing, fluffy, tasty pancakes that keeps you satisfied, your gut happy and your energy level elevated.
Here's the recipe:
