Birmingham - Japanese Food, Creative Ideas & Amazing People.

February 26, 2017

Here is a poem to round up our 3 days in Birmingham. I didn't want to write out a lot - so I thought I would put my own twist on it and write this blog as a poem. As love writing poetry. 

To round up this experience to you,

Watch my mini YouTube video through,

To have the honour to talk to inspirational and amazing people day and night,

Shows me there really is a reason to fight and walk into the light,

The friends that are made,

Whilst doing trade,

To learn,

Helps that inner fire burn, 

Yummy foods that we consume, 

Which you can clearly see I assume,

New cuisines and faboulous restaurants all part of the memories made,

Through the day we do lots of trade,

Then the night we relax, enjoy the company & talk,

Through the city to find nice bars we walk, 

Inspired by all the talk and learning,

My flame still burning,

These shows are so much more than sales,

Experiences gained that will never fail,

Engaging with customers and the business as a whole, 

Whilst enjoying foods good for the soul, 

Thank you all for your knowledge, wise words and inspiration over the week,

I will remind myself of your words when my day is bleak, 

Business is business but always be yourself,

Knowing that yourself is enough,

Bring to the table what you can,

It's not about being part of a 'clan',

True friendships are made and worth so much more,

Plus you in business, life experiences you get to explore, 

Enjoy the adventures we had,

Of which I am truly glad,

Roll on more to come, 

To help create the person you want to become.

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
