I’m an athlete

Engaging in physical education is not only useful, but also fashionable. Today, young people and middle-aged people regularly visit fitness clubs, train in sections or on their own. Someone trains every day, someone once a week, and each sets its own tasks – either to build muscle, or to gain a slender figure, or simply to maintain and strengthen health. It is useful to know in this case that according to the Scandinavian recommendations on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle (NNR), which are the most authoritative for the Nordic countries (including Russia), adults need to spend at least 150 minutes a week on moderate loads or more than 75 minutes per week for high-intensity loads. This means that you need to train at least two to three times a week. If this doesn’t work out like this, you can gain the necessary level of physical activity with daily morning exercises (at least 15-20 minutes) and walking, controlled by a pedometer (10 thousand steps per day).

I am vegan

The modern classification of vegetarianism has been formed for more than 100 years, having gone from partial rejection of meat (flexitarianism), rejection of meat, but with the assumption of fish in the diet (peskarianism) to a complete rejection of all animal products, including milk and eggs. Currently, there are mainly two directions: veganism and lacto-ovolacto-vegetarianism. Veganism is the most severe form, including eggs and animal milk (except human breast milk for babies). As a rule, the path to veganism passes through first of all awareness of the ethical problems of modern society and involves the maximum rejection of the use of products obtained through the exploitation and killing of animals.

The word vegan was proposed by the ideologist of this trend Donald Watson in the middle of the last century as an integral part of the first three and last two letters of the English word “vegetarian”. This term was introduced by the “Vegan Society”, founded by Watson in the UK. Continue reading

I have a child

Proper nutrition of the child is a very responsible task for the whole family. Parents from the very birth of their baby are faced with a lot of questions on this topic and are looking for the right answers. And if breastfeeding is forcibly stopped for one reason or another, then the first task is to find the right baby food for your child. It is necessary to constantly monitor the composition, volume and quality of food consumed by the child throughout the entire period of its growth. There are a lot of baby food and literature on this subject, but it makes sense to dwell on the problem of food allergies.

Currently, various types of food allergies in children are found more and more often – for cow’s milk and dairy products, chicken eggs, meat, chocolate and cocoa, fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, some herbs and spices, etc. This is due, according to various estimates, not only to the hereditary factor, but also directly to the deterioration of the environmental situation, the presence of many artificial additives in food, and other reasons.
