Guest Contribution : Foods for Fit and Fab Health

Have you for long craved a good health? Are you always at the doctor’s because your body is a frequent target of diseases? Well, there is a big possibility you have not been that careful on the choices of foods you make as part of your daily diet. The poor health that has kept you agonizing for a long time could become a long-gone memory if you put the following foods in your shopping list every time you hit the supermarket.

APPLES APPLES

Apples can be quite expensive compared to other fruits but they are among the most important pieces you missed in your daily meal. Apples fight signs of ageing by providing anti-oxidants to your body. The antioxidants found in apples are known as polyphenols and are thought to increase lifespan.

FISH FISH

One of the biggest sources of protein in the world is fish. Salt-water fish, to be specific, are the most consumed and are arguably the healthiest. Overfishing has really had an effect on the availability of fish lately, but you can still afford to obtain one once or twice a week. The best thing about fish is that, unlike cattle, they do not eat foods raised with chemicals and fertilizers.

MUSHROOMS MUSHROOMS

Melissa Explains It All…

Clarissa-Explains-It-All

Mellisa Explains It Alll

She told Life & Style magazine:

“I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half, I was kind of running with a bad crowd, I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”

She wants everyone to know that she was not addicted to any of the aforementioned substances (possibly because addiction has a bad rep – but taking drugs does not?) and apparently Paris Hilton offered her cocaine once and she turned it down. Paris’ rep denied this, obviously.

She also goes on to boast about her past sucking face sessions with various celebs including former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter.

Now, I’m all for memoirs of celebrities, autobiographies if you will – but this seems a bit… dare I say, desperate? There appears to be a lot of name dropping, not to mention substance-name dropping, a lot of high tales that may or may not be true and a very unoriginal name?

Sounds like a terrible read. I’ll give this one a miss!
