2 Questions you must answer before your holiday eating starts

Uncategorized Nov 22, 2018

Hello. Welcome to the Foolish Couple's blog. If you have been following us for a while, you would know that we created the FoCo Academy to guide and mentor people to achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle changes.

 

Last weekend, we went to this epic Thanksgiving party with over 20 people. It was a potluck party so everyone brought different dishes to the party. We made a smoked turkey, our super antioxidant salad and our special dry-farmed wines. Others made rib eye steak, grilled vegetables, clam chowder, sautéed mushrooms, egg & potato salad, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, fresh baked breads, fried rice, fresh fruits, cheesecake, tiramisu, passionfruit mousse cake and lots of wine and lots of chips.

 

The holidays are here. This is the joyous yet dangerous times when things get out of hand. During the year, hopefully by now we have inspired you to at least make some small changes to your...

Finding a better Wine - Dry Farmed Natural Wines

 

 

Hello. Welcome to our blog. I am Andy. And this time, I am running solo without Minna. Minna and I have many things in common. Heck, we even share the same birthday, just so that we won’t ever forget each other’s birthdays. But there is one thing that is vastly different between us. And that, is alcohol.

 

The way I see it, there are 2 types of people. The type who likes to drink alcohol, and the type who doesn’t. I am a social drinker and I do enjoy drinking amongst a bunch of friends, but Minna rarely drinks. She has, in her DNA, an alcohol flush reaction, meaning that she would turn beet red even after just a few tiny sips of wine. And according to her, alcohol also makes her itchy and uncomfortable. She more or less stays away from drinking altogether.

 

But I do enjoy a glass of wine every now and then, and there are a lot of debate over whether red wine is good for your health or not. Some of the health benefit claims include:

  • Boost Heart...

Pillar #1: Healthy Eating Habits 

The first pillar to healthy aging has to do with our eating habits. Too many of us eat like it’s our last meal. They eat whatever they feel like, without thinking about the consequences of how the food affects their bodies.

Good foods can heal you, but bad foods can really hurt you. Your choice of food is...

Are you an Underpant Gnome?

 

We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and our goal is to help people achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercises, mindset and lifestyle.

 

Today we have invited our resident teddy bear to this blog because, well, as you can see, he is wearing underpants. And today, we’re going to talk about, yeah, underpants.

 

The other day someone told us about this episode on South Park that he insisted that we should watch. Normally we don’t watch South Park, but we decided to check out this particular episode, which is called “underpants gnomes”.

 

So, the story goes like this. The character in South Park was talking to his friends, and he said,

 

‘Someone has been stealing my underpants! I only have 1 pair left!’

 

So, they set off to look for the underpants thief, and they found out that it was a bunch of...

The Benefits of Prolonged Cold Water dip / Swimming

 

Are you a fan of swimming in cold water? I wasn’t, but I decided to challenge myself by swimming every morning, for 28 days, in my unheated outdoor pool. I did this to experiment on what happens when our bodies are exposed to cold water. This is what I found.

 

HI I am Andy from the Foolish Couple. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and our goal is to help people achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercises, mindset and lifestyle. 

 

I actually wanted to start this challenge last November when I read an article that intrigued me. The article talked about a bunch of seniors in Europe jumping into cold freezing lakes to swim every day. Why did they do it?
