100 YEARS -Poem

November 11, 2018

 

 100 YEARS.

 

100 years, 

We come together and look back over those tragic years, 

Our boys went out and faced their fears, 

Their bravery and suffering brings us all to tears, 

 

1914 the War to end all wars had begun, 

A fight we thought would be easily won, 

But underlying issues that had bubbled under the surface for years, 

Would now begin bringing all of Europe to tears, 

 

1915 with no end in sight, 

Despite all of our men fighting with such might, 

The gloom of the trenches as we dug in deep, 

No man getting any sleep,

 

1916 the battle of the Somme that would turn it all around, 

No-man's land lay dead without a sound, 

The shelling went on, 

So many men left our port and forever were gone, 

 

1917 and Passendale was another push, 

The British trying to get the American troops to the front with great rush, 

The men were tired with their morale low,

The war was so deadly and so slow, 

 

1918 with Russia out of the game, 

Troops were going insane, 

What a long drawn out slaughter this war had become to be, 

All we wanted was to be free,

 

We come back to now, 

We look around at how, 

The men fought so bravely and gave their lives without question to the fight for freedom, 

To keep our kingdom, 

 

We can not forget their strength, 

To go the extra length, 

We MUST be forever thankful to our boys for their protection

On reflection, 

 

This can never happen again and we must learn, 

Before we re-ignite the fire and burn, 

History is a lesson we must listen to, 

If it is the only thing we do, 

 

Take a moment to ourselves to thank, 

The horrors our Tommy's went through to be frank, 

To give us the world we live in today, 

Thank you we must always say,

 

 

Our heroes - we will forever remember them.

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.
