We all know that exercise is great for our body and staying in great shape can effectively help prevent the onset of deadly diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer.  Most people associate activities like running and cycling as the best way to improve fitness and heart health, while strength training is looked upon as the best method to improve muscle mass. What people fail to understand is that there are a multitude of health benefits with strength training that are far superior to endurance training, and that you can improve your cardiovascular fitness lifting weights.

There is so much confusion and conflicting advice surrounding health and fitness these days it is no wonder so many people resort to fad diets and extreme measures to get results. There is more information available at the touch of a keyboard, more health therapists, specialists, personal trainers, and people to help people with health than there has ever been in history yet the health of many people is continuing to decline. For over 16 years I have specialized in working with people with injury or disease and helping them to restore their health and vitality to enjoy a life of quality. Over this time I have discovered many new and exciting methods, exercises, and strategies to help people, but the one thing that has never changed during this time is the foundation that good health is built upon. Just like building a house, you need a strong foundation before you worry about doing anything else. In this article I will show you that there is 8 pieces to this foundation you need to know in order to have a strong and healthy body.

I love slow cooking, it's so easy that anyone can do it. With Slow Cooking, you "SET & FORGET". The recipe that I am sharing with you is Slow Cooked Duck Leg Ragu. This ragu is a low carb recipe and I enjoy serving it with cauliflower mash, zucchini noodles, or sauteed brussels sprout.  It also freezes well which is great for leftovers. Duck leg is such a lovely meat to use in the slow cooker, it is nutrient dense, and has so much flavour. It would however be a protein that many households would not choose. The health benefits of duck include being rich in protein, iron, Vitamin B and it is a great source of glycine which can help to boost the immune system. Here is a great recipe you can use to enjoy all the flavours of duck.
