The Truth About 6 Common Food Myths

Fitness With Maria

maria pontillo Fitness With Maria Food MythsThe Internet has given people across the world convenient access to information and knowledge — unfortunately, a lot of that information is misleading, especially regarding health and food topics.  False nutritional, fitness and health information is believed by the masses in part because of billion dollar advertising campaigns and deceitful food labeling.  Calculated marketing ploys combined with the viral effects of social media have convinced millions of people to practice food and health habits that are more harmful than beneficial.  It amazes me when I hear my fitness clients talk about inaccurate health information and theories that they are practicing. So many people are leading what they think is a healthy lifestyle, when in actuality, it’s not. Although it’s only a tiny percentage, my lifestyle & health consultation services have allowed me to promote and correct health and fitness information among many South Floridians.

Food is FREE – honestly…

Life Intent

It often puzzles me that food isn’t more often free… In fact, when we think about it, it kind of is, as most months of the year, there is something that can be foraged from nature to fill our tummies.

With a little work looking around our neighbourhoods for wild food and working together with the people living in our community growing fresh fruits and vegetables, we really could have that ‘free lunch‘ that economists say doesn’t exist.

The making of paella

travels with toby

I have made paella many times using this same recipe for about 30 years.  It came from a now closed restaurant in Los Angeles called La Masía.  And this time I decided to document so that I could share the process.  Rather than write out the recipe because, after all, you can find the basic recipe online and there are many variations, I’ll just show the basic steps.  The thing I love about paella is that you can pick and choose what you want in it.

Sometimes you make a decision you might regret later on. Just remember you are not alone and try to distract yourself away from your own self. That is a way of dealing with it. There are medications, which might turn your mind off and make you go to sleep but distractions are a much better alternative according to me.
