4 Vegetables That Will Change Your Health.

Many of us know that cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, or kale are excellent for our health. But did you know that peppery greens like arugula and watercress are also a part of the cruciferous family? Horseradish and wasabi, both pungent roots that pack powerful notes of spice and mustard, are cruciferous. While it makes sense that arugula, watercress, and horseradish are all related, few of us realize that they are actually a part of the cruciferous family, a family of vegetables that boasts excellent health properties!

Water is life, it is essential for our bodies to function properly and it is also a key to losing weight.

You can use any other fruits and vegetables you like, the goal is to get you to drink more water than you usually do.

My Fruit Jar #HealthySnack

Choosing to live healthy involves a lot of creativity, in order to keep yourself inspired and keep your morale high.

I made this fruit jar snack ,as part of my food for the day and took it along to the office, so instead of being tempted to go for a chocolate bar , sausage or meat pie you can always keep this handy in your office or home fridge.

You can always fill as many jars as possible with different fruits you like and they don’t take a lot of time to make.

This also motivates others around you to embrace the healthy lifestyle.

BRISBANE, Australia #MyCity

I went around my city of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia posing as a tourist.

I love this city so much, as it is full of life and constantly evolving to become one of the future cities of the world.

Brisbane can be divided into 3 places of interest, for a tourist who has got only few hours to spare and this can be done in half a day while you are here attending a conference, summit or just passing by.

The 3 places are;

 1. Fortitude Valley

This is home to places like China town, numerous clubs and restaurants of Asian origin, top of the range car shops like (Mercedes Benz, BMW, Land rover, Jaguar, Volvo). I will get photos from this location on another day.

2. South Bank/South Brisbane

          This is the home of fine dining with all the side attractions you can think of. There are lots of restaurants, hotels, offices, residential apartments, educational institutions, hospitals and entertainment sites. It is home to the Queensland museum, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), Brisbane Convention Centre, The Wheel of Brisbane, ABC news station, The Mater hospital, The Maritime Museum and a host of other tourist attractions.

3. Brisbane Central Business District (Brisbane CBD).

Popular streets are Queen, George, Adelaide, Edward, Ann, Eagle streets.

This is the heart of Brisbane city. It is the seat of state government and the Brisbane city council. It is home to shopping malls like the Queens Plaza, which consists of top brands like the David Jones and designer fashion shops like Zara, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel.

Queen Street is the most popular street because of the food court and various shops and side attestations like musical bands performing all year round celebrating one occasion or the other. My favourite restaurant on Queen Street is ‘Jim on the Mall’ known for their yummylicious Moreton Bay bugs which is a dish work every cent spent.

Numerous hotel brands like The Hilton, Sofitel, The Marriott (where president Barrack Obama & the US team resided in while here for the G20 summit), NEXT Hotels, Stamford Plaza, Mercure & Ibis, Casinos, pubs, clubs, residential apartments like the Meriton (they have the tallest building on Herschel street consisting of 80 floors) and various corporate offices of multinationals dot the landscape of the city of Brisbane. 

I love my city of Brisbane, so give me Brisbane any day.
