#53Sundays

This is a year-long experiment touching on aspects of health, the environment and society.

2017 has 52 weeks, yet has 53 Sundays, each a point of reflection and learning during the experiment.

What can you achieve and learn in a month of Sundays?

Loved the espresso at @its.a.vacation this morning. What did I love more? The fact that they reduce the potential of food waste by offering serving size options. One slice of toast or two? Makes a HUGE difference. A single slice of white bread wasted is equivalent to clearing land the size of 2 one-bedroom apartments to grow the wheat to produce the grain needed to A SINGLE SLICE! #onesliceortwo #nofoodwaste #foodwaste #vacationcoffee #foodwastewarriors #coffee #espresso #melbourne

What does my TGIF Happy Hour look like post-#53Sundays? Sparkling water, laaaaaamb shoulder, saganaki, aioli, tsatziki, EVOO and lemon. And spiritual enlightenment on the side. Oh. For those curious, couldn’t help myself - I also ended up scavenging 1/4 bowl raw slaw and an extra lemon wedge (#livingofffoodwadtestill haha). #TGIF #HappyHour #enlightenment #EckhartTolle #lamb #doublehapoy #keto #lchf #banting

Sunday brunch! @bulletproof decaf (decaf because it’s weights day) coffee with all the extras, and my ‘mug muffin’ made in a fry pan (no microwave). All the fat. All the goodness. Once a week I treat myself to this ‘upgraded’ BPC. To my freshly brewed coffee I add a whole @essentiallyketo salted caramel fat drop (OMG), XCT Oil, unsalted Butter, @atpscience noway vanilla caramel protein hydrolysed collagen, cinnamon & pure vanilla extract. Soooooo gooood. Sooooo creamy. I also add the collagen in my daily muffin. Collagen is part of my daily diet. #healthoseknees #bpc #keto #lchf #banting #collagen #fat #mugmuffin #happyhappy #sunday #brunch #eatcollagentobuildcollagen

Big day today! I’m presenting my PhD mid-candidature review - an important milestone in my research. Naturally I’m using a few ‘hacks’ to optimise my performance. One of them was my coffee this morning. I made myself a @bulletproof coffee using @kimerakoffee as the bean so I could have the L-Theanine. L-Theanine is an amino acid naturally found in a variety of foods including green tea. It’s a rather brilliant compound in that it blocks glutamate induced high stress responses such as high blood pressure, anxiety, diminished mental function etc. L-Theanine kicks in a GABA response which calms & relaxes, but instead of making you drowsy it makes you alert and attentive. It also reduces blood pressure, and improves cognitive function. There’s also interesting research in its use in preventing cognitive decline and protecting against Alzheimer’s etc. but today, I just want to be alert and not alarmed. And it’s as darn tasty as!👍☕️ #biohack #cognitivefunction #bulletproof #coffee #kimerakoffee #ltheanine #becomethelegend #alertnotalarmed #tasty #nootropics
