One of the ladders we climbed starting Augustsecrets was working with the Federal Institute of Industrial Research (FIIRO) 
We learnt the basics of food processing to multiply the nutrients of natural foods through various systems. 
All our machines are made-in-Nigeria by certified food machine technologists. 
A recent meeting with the Kenya Agricultural & Livestock and Organisation (KALRO) made us realise that there is a future for our local food crops in relation to child survival & food security.

Their food crops have similarities with Nigerians' . 
We have the same need for more creative meal options from them. 😁 
The abstract of our paper "Indigenous Knowledge as a Tool for Child Survival in Africa" has been published in the Kenyan International Journal of Nutritionists & Dieticians. 
22 months down the line, we are still committed to the cause of optimal infant & child nutrition, pray more to come.

• S U N D A Y S • I just want someone to love me the way I love coffee after a larger than anticipated night out😍☕️
.
Working in the fitness industry everyone assumes you wear a health halo 24/7 and only eat salads and drink soda water on a night out. While that might be the case for some who are #committedtothecause, to me there’s more to life. Which sometimes means eating all the food and drinking maybe a little too much wine.
.
Remember life is for living! Do you really want to get to the end of your life with a hot bod but having had no Christmas cake? Or a summer spritz by the beach? Or a piece of your Mum’s famous lasagna? Nope, didn’t think so.
.
Don’t stress this festive season if you’re eating isn’t perfect. Just get a few veggies in the next day, drink some water and remember coffee will always have your back☕️❤️

Even little ballerinas need some rest 🎀 (and some mummies even more!) I have had an awful migraine and endo flare up so swapping my plans to Marie Kondo the wardrobes for Mummy cuddles on the sofa instead... movies, popcorn and letting the 3 year old have a danger nap. Whatever it takes for an easy day, Colin will hopefully be home to deal with the bedtime back lash 🤣....

Part 1:
A couple facts about me:
1). I (thought I) wanted to be Lil Kim in 8th grade
2). I bought Hardcore the DAY it came out
3). My African momma found my copy and broke it with a hammer (like she couldn't just use her hands🙄)
4). I dubbed the album on a blank disk and labeled it "Algebra notes" (I'm not proud of this)
5). Tonight I got to live out my dreams of being on stage w/ the BadBoy Fam circa 96 thanks to @insecurehbo & @trapkaraoke

Ai adai my girl. First a long swim this morning, total car wreck from another sleepy person, hrs at the hospital with x-rays on her injured ankle & lunch around 3:30. The doctor said she needs to rest for 2-3 days. After lunch she asks me if I can drop her to the gym later. 
Me: “Didn’t you hear the dr say to rest?” Genina: “I am. I’m only going to be doing squats and deadlifts.  It’s leg day.”

Accompanying Proyecto Hombre Bierzo-León in the First Conference "Use and abuse of new technologies", which is celebrated today and tomorrow in #Leonesp.
For José Antonio Diez, mayor of Leon, the dependence on digital devices among young people is increasingly worrying and from León, as the headquarters of the mayor of the European cybersecurity center, it's focusing on prevention at all levels.

Take action! A stitch in time saves a lifetime of avoidable work and dependence. 
Early and appropriate intervention is imperative and here are 3 reasons why:
1.After a diagnosis, time is of the essence as every second could count for or against our children.
2.During the formative years, behaviours can easily be corrected and undesired patterns interrupted and changed.
3.Social skills and other life skills can easily be introduced to our children.
Early intervention increases the chances for a higher quality of life for our children.
Take action!

When it brightened up this afternoon I thought there might be a glimpse of pink sky this evening. 
So I checked sunset time and spent half an hour waiting and watching and after climbing up on a stack of garden chairs ,like magic, the pink skies appeared 💕 * Just remembered the child who was out with me taking photographs hasn’t done her homework yet. There’s only so many balls you can keep in the air like.... #magicofoctober #autumnskies #pinkskies #anotherskypic #pursuepretty #pink #ipbig #committedtothecause

"The scariest moment is always just before you start"
Are you thinking of starting something new this fall? Maybe you're procrastinating because you think you won't be good at it? Thinking of starting Pilates?? Or something else? But worried you'll look or feel silly or that you'll suck at it.
The truth is, everyone looks a bit silly starting out. But who cares. Don't let your ego get in the way of your health.
When I did my first teacher training, I couldn't even nearly touch my toes, I was in a room full of dancers and I literally had two left feet. I could so easily have let myself feel like such a failure. But I had made a choice to push through. I was committed to the cause. We would do exercises all together like Short Spine on the reformer and the others would all be making sex noises because they were enjoying it so much and I was all like "yuk. This feels horrific". But my mentor kept telling me "keep practicing. You'll get there". And I believed him. And he was right!
Don't let your fear get in the way of your best self.
What new things will you be doing this fall. Share in the comments below 🙏🏻

‘This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius’ is what is tearing through my mind right now. That and a wry smile as I imagine my Mother coming here on the hippy bus from Liverpool on the summer solstice. Far out man.

Today, the family are on our own pilgrimage- because youngest moodiest son is studying the stones at school. At least he is showing an interest in something other than football- even if his brother was winding him up by asking strangers what their favourite theory was regarding the stones and then launching into a lengthy refrain about how a replica model of our revered henge showed that it’s construction featured an acute acoustic awareness that suggests it’s purpose was to be heard for some distance. Interestingly- it’s vantage point on the planes lends itself further to this way of thinking. But what of all the burial mounds? What kind of ceremonies were underway?

With this in mind, I really had no choice but to bring #Ceremony along by #lesliemarmonsilko- because what says ceremony better than #Stonehenge.

It is a magical and mysterious place. There are so many theories about this exalted monument. One thing is for sure though- the effort put into creating it was immense so it must have been significant. Especially when you consider the scale of it compared to other megalithic sites such as Avebury or Pentre Ifan. And when you consider how far these stones were transported (Pembrokeshire) and how difficult it would be to hew them into this shape.. My favourite theory centres on #midwinter. We are definitely going to come back on the winter solstice to check out the energy of the place. It has been suggested that some sort of ritual or ceremony would have been offered to appease the dying year.. So I ask you what rituals and ceremonies mark your lives? How do you feel safe and negotiators your place in our vast and awe inspiring world? How do you show membership to your tribe?

This is what commitment looks like people. See below about what @cassaboutfood has to say about the Wholy-Hock-a-Moly

I swear the casual attitude I have to lactose intolerance is going to kill me one day. Some people can’t live without chocolate, but I can’t live without cheese or pasta. So when news broke that a mac n cheese bar opened up on Jackson street, I knew I was a goner. Needing a break from all the burgers, I armed myself with lactase enzyme tablets and tried to put a brave face on, knowing of the f***ing horror that could await me tomorrow. They have special prices for the ‘Mac of the Day’ but ain’t no one was gonna to stop me from the bacon-y goodness of the Wholy Hock a Moly. You can’t tell from the photo but it was a giant man-sized portion full of creamy, cheesy indulgence, aka Death. I had equal parts excitement and fear, being neither a man nor lactose tolerant.
⠀⠀
F me, this didn’t disappoint. The ginormous pockets of macaroni caught all that hot molten goodness and the coating of herb breadcrumbs provided a delicious crunch. This ham hock was damn fine, none of that weak-ass Freedom Farm stuff that shrinks 50% when you cook it and tastes like brine 🤢. It gave it a smokiness dimension and over-the-top saltiness which is exactly what Mac n cheese is all about. Make sure to douse your Mac thoroughly with the selection of hot sauces on the table to spice up your life. Despite being worried about the size I cleaned my dang bowl like a champ - no flavour fatigue here. ⠀⠀
Thanks @wholymac for reinventing mac n cheese. I’ll probably be dead tomorrow but it’ll be 100% worth it; 9.5/10 without hot sauce, 10/10 with hot sauce. RIP Lactose Intolerants Everywhere.

This is why I am only accepting limited orders for pizza. Making this flour is intense! Those trays look so innocent sitting there; but dem stressing! Grated cassava is wet, it requires a close eye and much turning and breaking up to ensure it dries safely and evenly. And when all that water evaporates 2lbs worth of work becomes 3/4lbs of yield. #committedtothecause #fromscratch #unprocessedfood #glutenfree

Had to put all our climbing gear in this baby carriage so we could ride to kangaroo point. I’m guessing people though there was a baby in the back because I was getting some pretty funny looks thrashing it through the valley 😂 talk about quad burn though!! 😵😵 .
