😏Wants to be & feel healthier: even with eating clean, she still has to be careful about her choices. Some good food will make you feel bloated, while others would make you feel lighter.

😋Guilt-free snacking: Snacking is the killer in any diet, but good snack needn’t being loaded with junk or be bland. Tats why Charlotte is a big fan of Miss Nang Treats.

👏Delays gratification: a healthy lifestyle is also about self control and how we reward ourselves with the things, treats or food we love.

Snack healthier

Hello and happy new Month!

Am sure we all know this, but do you know that snacking constitutes up to 30% of our daily chewing?

Just like Breakfast, lunch, dinner, we ought to look at our snacking much closer.

Snacking is the only ‘meal we do not pay much attention to, but if you ever wondered how you manage to put on weight while religiously planning your other meals, check your snacking.

Below are few tips to snack better.

Eat more often

You’ve heard it before. Yes, you’ve got to eat more often during the day. The question is how, do you eat more often? In the same way that you have set times for your meals, you can decide in advance your snacking times during the day. You can snack as much as you want provided that you know the following:

  1. from your own observations, how many times do you snack a day?
  2. Are you snacking because you are genuinely hungry or are you bored or can this feeling of hunger be dissipated by a glass of water or coffee?
  3. what are you gaining from your snacking? sugar hit, more calories or actual nutrients?
  4. Are you pursuing a better snacking life or just want to eat less of what you are currently eating?
  5. Decide in advance and pack you snack portions for each of your snack breaks.

What you gain

Even if you do not change what you are going to eat during your snack breaks, just looking closely at point 1-5 above will help you to reflect on your eating habits. By planning properly, you will:

  1. waste less time choosing your snacking at breaktime,
  2. you save on £££,
  3. you will be more relaxed during your break and actually have a break,
  4. you’ll be able to differentiate the types of hunger you are dealing with throughout the day,
  5. you will become more aware of the junk you actually consume on a daily basis and reduce it.

If you are actually going to pay more attention to your snacking, you may as well make them beneficial to your body right?

COVID had made us more conscious of the importance of our health, 22% more people have switched to a more plant-based diet since the beginning of the pandemic. Health food shop with online deliveries have performed much better than the rest as people took their diet under the microscope; We’ve now realised that our Pre-COVID diet left us naked as the pandemic hit our lives. We want to be ready if anything else shows up.

Voucher valid on miss nang shop online.

So, here are few recommendations for you.

for a better snacking life, plan your snack time and stick to it as much as you can.

  1. Your snacks are an opportunity to drip feed nutrients to our bodies, so choose snack that can help you build up: Natural snacks like nuts & seeds enhanced with natural flavouring and colouring.
  2. only take to your desk the snacks you have prepared for the day, sealed in individual portions.
  3. subscribe to a healthy snack box. That way, you know it is coming every month, all you have to do now is learning to be patient until is time to open a new package.
  4. However many snack you plan a day, do pack a little extra for the time you failed to resist.

Hope all the above are useful to you. Do you have any tips on snacking that you’d like to share with the readers?

Will you be adopting any of the tips above? Please do let me know.

If you can, please do follow Miss Nang Treats on Instagam @miss-nang for more on these topics.

Perfectionism and Disability

The month of Love has arrived. If you are single like me, this month is a reminder of your failing at bagging a life partner. African and south Asian families are great at reminding you how unaccomplished you are if you aren’t married at after 25 with kids. That already tells you how inadequate you are. Weirdly, there is always a cousin, a sister or a friend who has ticked all those boxes at the right time. Queue: why aren’t you like the daughter of… who has married a banker and has twins? Arrrgh. The short of this is, by you not having a home, you are IMPERFECT!

Of course, having a chronic illness and a visible disability makes meeting that elusive partner even more difficult. Those two every day are reminders that you do not fit in society in its current form. Society isn’t built to welcome people with visible or invisible defects (disable) therefore it seems nothing is built to help us evolve even with our disability. Yes, there is the Disability discrimination act 1995, but how many people even know it exists?

I recently saw on Instagram a Disability Community page, I found it to be a great concept and for the first time, I saw the black community opening acknowledge that there may be black people with disabilities. There weren’t many comments on the page, not many followers. There were 5 messages and 2 of them, were messages from women damning the idea that there could even be black people with disabilities around. Just because people refuse to acknowledge something, it does not negate it existence.

Another place where Disability and Perfectionism collided in my life in the past was my desire to perfect every single thing I did. Especially at work. I have come to realise that my desire to perfect everything around me was to compensate. My imperfections were visible: the missing bones, the patch work scar going from the neck down, the funny walk due to chronic pains. I had to do something about it.

This summer I completely embraced my disability. I recognised that in the eyes of the world I was imperfect, but the person who made me [GOD] thinks am perfect. He repainted the cracks in me with gold and made me much more valuable (see kintsugi).

And it is true.

The next step was to accept that I cannot spend my life ironing every aspect thereof because Good should be Good Enough, Very Good is better than Good and Perfectionism is just a way to public declare our insecurities to the world. Yes, perfectionism is the result of insecurities.

My disabilities have created insecurities in me. Society declared me imperfect so, becoming a perfectionist was a way to prove that I could do ‘IT’ far better than anyone who was an able bodied, whatever ‘IT’ was.

It is tiring to be a perfectionist, it becomes obsessive, many projects don’t see the light, you have eye in the back of the head, things are check, double checked, triple checked and even so, still put in the drawer after so much work. Perfectionism can cause paranoia, mental health.

During the lockdowns, I understood the perfectionist me, embraced my disabilities (imperfections) and my place in society.  I feel a lot lighter and more productive. Am now unearthing old projects that should be further along and looking forward to what’s in store for Miss Nang and Co in a Post covid world economy.

Hope you stick around as the journey take a new turn post pandemic, it is going to be an interesting new way of living with a mind freed at last.

Do you fancy continueing this conversation?

Join me on Sunday 7th February at 6pm live on Instagram.

See you next month.

Hortense – Nutter In Chief

First Food & Drinks Award!!!

So, now Miss Nang Treats is an award winning brand of gourmet nuts & Seeds. Whoop Whoop.

And has been recognised as Most inclusive Luxury Nuts & Seeds Brand – UK by Lux Life Food & Drink Awards 2020 – I made a reaction video, check it on the IGTV.

 

 

Winning such a title is really such an honour because Miss Nang intentionally set out to be a unifier: Creating plant based snacks that would be suitable for most diets to allow people to be more convivial and share their latest foodies’ finds. It seems the brand is achieving that.

The original inspiration was my love for nuts and the many ways I could make them interesting. 5-6 years ago when I started to scratch the surface, vegan snacks had weird names and ingredients. They were plain and often smell funny. This meant that a flexitarian for example might not want to share a kind offer from a vegan.

I found the food industry too devided with every diets in their own section, which means that many miss out on even seeing the great stuff.

UNITY: I created Miss Nang Treats so I could share my snacks with anyone around me: vegan, gluten-free, kosher, Keto etc… I didn’t want to leave anyone out or send them into a special shopping section to get their snacks.

ACCESSIBILITY: I also wanted to create something that people could pronounce and recognise all the ingredients of. This meant they’d be confident that there were no additive, colouring or refined hidden component in what they were eating.

MADE in UK: With Miss Nang Treats, I also tried as much as possible to include some ingredients cultivated in the UK, like sea salts or lavender.

Being recognised as inclusive of all the above is a really significant win and makes me excited for the future of this little enterprise.

Thank you to all the tasters and the first ever customers and to the people who gave me random ingredients to try and create with. I APPRECIATE YOU!

This award belongs to you too.

Much love.

Your health, your wealth

Pistachio, turmeric, Nigella seeds – Nang Gellastachios

Welcome to November.

If you like nuts & seeds but they aren’t part of your daily diet yet, this is for you.

Studies show that snacking can represent up to 30% of our daily food intake. It is therefore really important to plan our daily snacks in advance.

Planning a tweak in your food intake can start now or you can start thinking about your new year’s resolutions. Hello 2021!

This is not about dieting. If you’re over 30 years old, you know by now that dieting is like chasing the wind: every year, we start it and fall off just to start again.

I am talk about your Health Wealth. You may not have cottoned on to it yet, but guess what? All your WEALTH, no matter which form it takes is rooted in your HEALTH and you have a part to play in it.

Am sure you knew this, but are you working on it? Will your current diet defend you tomorrow?

One thing COVID-19 has made us more aware of is that a preventative and balanced diet will protect you from a lot. You’ll therefore not be among the firsts victims of random diseases or pandemics.

Protecting your inner body parts will not only keep you healthy, but help you keep a job, play your role in the society and in your circles. So, why not start now? The result isn’t immediate; drip feeding your organism with goodness takes time to build up. Make it a lifestyle habit starting now.

Since my speciality is nuts and more plants-based, below are few recommendations for your brain health, muscles and blood health. Each of them will include the link to one of the snacks on the website. Hope you find them helpful. From there you can look at eyes, gut, nerves, hair and bone health

Drip feed your brain:

Love coffee? Do you know caffeine & antioxidants can protect against Alzheimer?

Broccoli protects the brain against brain damage. Turmeric helps grow new brain cells.

Pumpkin seeds help the brain to function. Walnut is the brain nut par excellence’ with all its nutrients and Omega3. You can also help your brain with Oranges, blueberries and green tea.

Miss Nang treats brain snacks are Scottish Walnuts and Red-O-Pumpkin (click to buy).

 

Cinnamon Almonds – Nang Cin-Almonds

Drip feed your muscles:

*Protect the muscles: If you exercise, almonds are great nuts to add to your diet as they can be performance enhancers due to their content in magnesium (help muscle movements & boost sporting performance) vitamin E (protects from damages) & B (prevent infections). Eat almonds!

*Help muscles recovery: Cashews, are proven to help reduce cramps and muscle spasms. If you exercise, they are great post workout snack to help muscle recovery.

*Heal muscles: Eat spinach, carrot and sweet potatoes to heal your damaged muscles with their content in Vitamin A. Eat soy products to heal your muscles with their content in vitamin D.

*Regenerate your muscles: Vitamin B12, help your muscles regenerate quickly and promote the fast healing of damaged muscles. B12 are found in animal and do not really have a vegetable source sadly. Vegan can find the supplement in pharmacy.

To start building you muscles health capital, why not start today with the Nang Cin-Almond, or Nang Charco-Al? The Nang Cashew- Beet and Nang Safprika are fantastic snacks to start with (Click to buy).

 

Miss Nang Vegan seeds trio

Help your blood:

*Increase your blood flow & circulation by using cinnamon in your food. Onion, garlic, lemon and turmeric ARE great helpers of blood flow. Oh and drink a lot of water. Did you know? Not drinking enough water thickens your blood and slows its circulation.

*Increase red blood cells count: Not having enough red blood cells, causes anaemia, chronic fatigue and other complications.

For normal people, increasing the red blood cells is as simple as adding Iron in your food. Eat more beans, raisins, green vegetables.

Top up on folic acids AKA vitamin B9 whenever you can. You find the folic acid in beans, lentils, peas and nuts (pumpkin seeds, cashews, sunflower seeds…)

Why not start your healthier snacking journey with the Nang Red-O-Pumpkin, Nang Safprika or Nang Cashew-Beet? (Click link to buy).

 

 

Eat to prevent/reduce inflammations:

Inflammations are part of the body healing system. They happen when the immune system goes into action without visible infection or injury. Arthritis, nerve pains, irritable bowels. Inflammations can go from regular increased pains up to chronic and Neuropathic pains.

To build your capital and also help reduce inflammations, start by cutting down on red meats, trans fats like margarine and deep fried foods as they increase free radicals in he body. Free Radicals trigger inflammations.

To reduce inflammations, add Ginger in your diet, it has an effect on gastro pains and arthritis pains.

Turmeric has an effect on most inflammations, so add it often in your savoury meals.

To reduce inflammations, eat walnuts, pistachios, almonds, peanuts, leafy greens, blueberries and oranges.

Why not start your ‘snack healthier’ journey with some savoury almonds, vanilla peanuts or turmeric pistachios? (Click link to buy).

These are just few ideas to help you start on your journey and tips for researching what you may need to build preventative capital for your body’s functions.
