I don’t eat much canned food; just tuna & coconut cream, which both have a ring pull thingy, so no can opener problems there. And the only other food is canned beetroot, which I love to flavour up a salad and add a bit of tang. So I need to open a small can about once a week.
But seriously of late, it’s become a massive ordeal. I bought one cheapo can opener and it lasted about 4 cans. I could still pierce the can but the wheel was rotating on the spot and not going anywhere.
Super frustrating when you don’t have an alternative on hand, a partially opened can and no way to get in there any time soon.
Do you know why finding a low polyunsaturated fat skincare is important? What even am I talking about?
(*Also note update at the end.)
What is a PUFA? – Why is it a problem? – How does it relate to my skin and ageing?
Ok, PUFAs are Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and despite many a traditional dietitian still espousing that it’s the healthier oil – think nut oil, seed oil, grain oil – like sunflower, canola, rice bran – others like Biologist Dr Ray Peat say that due to its unstable nature – ie: easily breaks down in heat and light – it actually may be toxic and inflammatory and cause a whole host of issues like this:-
So hydration – quite important right? The story goes – three days without water and you’re cactus.
In recent times though the fit and healthy crew have gone a bit overboard with DRINK ALL THE WATER!
But more than you actually need is not better at all. It in fact can slow your metabolism down, overtax your kidneys and dilute the minerals and electrolytes your body actually needs to function correctly. More on that whole hullabaloo another time.
However that last point about electrolytes… leads me to coconut water.
