Get students to write out the 10 best food combinations for breakfast and the 10 worst. Get a class consensus 1st if time permits.

The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” Ann Wigmore

There are few chemicals that we as a people are exposed to that have as many far-reaching physiological effects on living beings as Monosodium Glutamate does. MSG directly causes obesity, diabetes, triggers epilepsy, destroys eye tissues, is genotoxic in many organs and is the probable cause of ADHD and Autism. Considering that it’s only reported role in food is ‘flavour enhancer’, is that use worth the risk of the myriad physical ailments associated with it? Does the public really want to be tricked into eating more food and faster by a food additive?” John E. Erb

We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because it’s talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning…..It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body.” Joshua Rosenthal

The average recommended exercise for everyone is 30 minutes a day. In a lot of cases, walking to and from school might give you all the exercise you require. If you are the sporty type, don’t burn yourself out by over training and playing too many sports. Try every sport and enjoy them, but pick your favourite after 14/15 years of age and stick to it. You will find that your health may suffer in old age if you overexpose yourself constantly to Irish weather.
