foods that are bad

Hi all I wanted to share this from a fellow blogger:


5 Foods that are Silently Killing You

by Mary Sheridan

Everyone deserves an occasional indulgence, but if you want to optimize your health, and still fit on your skinny jeans, these foods are a no, no, no

1. Pop
Soda pops can create chaos for your body! They’re not friendly to your skin, teeth and hormones and can seriously affect your anxiety levels. Over time, the high sugar and caffeine content can cause chronic dehydration and plaque build-up on the teeth leading to severe cavities and gum disease. Each can contains zero nutritional value (but 10 teaspoons of sugar!) – it’s a fizzy concoction that you can live without.

2. Peaches in heavy syrup
Peaches soaked in heavy syrup are filled with calories that don’t do the body good. Read the ingredients list first. If you see glucose, fructose, dextrose, or sucrose on there, chances are there’s a ton of added sugar. Syrups spoil this already sweet treat and if you’re trying to keep blood insulin levels at a stable level – stay away!

3. Margarine
Full of artificial ingredients and synthetic vitamins, margarine is a gastronomical gremlin that causes the body’s immune response to go haywire. For a healthier sandwich spread, smooth over some avocado or hummus instead. Margarine is full of trans fats and increases the risk of bad cholesterol, heart disease, and stroke.

4. Hot dogs
Processed meats should carry a warning label. They’re packed with sodium and chemicals. Regular, daily consumption increases your risk of developing colorectal cancer by 21% – yet hotdogs are a summer staple for many. Between the types of meats that are used, and the chemicals added to make these hot dogs edible, it’s no surprise why health concerns arise.

5. Potato chips
Potato chips (and other deep fried foods) are behind the rise of cancers in North America. Fleeting greasy satisfaction isn’t worth the risk you put on your colon, bladder and rectum. Instead of snatching a chip bag off the shelf, try making your own chips at home. Slice potatoes and brush them with a little bit of olive oil and a dash of sea salt. Bake in the oven until crispy – and voila! You’ve got yourself a recipe for longer, healthier life.

Giants Causeway

As part of our Tour of Thrones NI tour on Sunday,we stopped at the World Famous UNESCO site that is the Giants Causeway. Again beautiful day, lots of people walking to the stones and back. But I still remember when you paid a fiver for car parking and that was it!!! Now it’s £9 per adult and £5 per child and if you are National Trust member it’s free. 


I totally understand why such a charge is levied. The visitors centre is an amazing architectural wonder with great displays inside, a shop and a coffee shop. In all fairness the charge incorporates entry to the centre,free audio guide and access to the Stones (which is free anyway).

I would respectfully suggest to the powers that be that the pricing structure needs to be reduced. I did see many people leave when they saw the charges.  However people will come, last year well over 700,000 people visited from over 100 countries. So keep up the good work and I do urge everyone to visit this site. Ps Game Of Thrones was not filmed here!!!
