Micro-Nutrients: Why 9 out of 10 Kids Are Missing Out!

Fitness, Fitness related - Anupriya kapur - April 27, 2017

The best thing about running or exercising regularly is how it makes you connect with your body. One slowly starts looking for healthy alternatives to unhealthy food. Sure, it takes more work, but the results are certainly worth it. As I have mostly started eating clean, I realised that my taste has changed over time too and I find myself craving for healthier options. This also means that I end up reading a lot more about what is going in to my son’s and my body. I also find myself reading labels of everything I buy and my grocery basket looks way different than it used to even two years back. While most of the time I ensure that I’m balancing carbohydrate, protein and fat intake, I recently started paying attention to micronutrients too. These are nutrients required by the body in micro doses.

Trip to McLeodgunj

For the soul, Travel - Anupriya kapur - April 19, 2017

I haven’t slowed down since my mom’s death in October last year. Maybe it was my way of coping with the loss. So, when this project to visit McLeodgunj came my way (yes on good days, bloggers get to do this too), I was apprehensive. Mountains force you to slow down, they make you feel small and remind you of how unimportant you are, I wasn’t sure if I was ready to be with myself yet. What’s worse is that it had been years since I took a bus for a long journey and did a backpacking kind of a trip. But I’m glad I went ahead with it because, even though I didn’t realize it, it was time for me to slow down. I will try to give out all the details of the journey and at the end of it some pointers as well and loads and loads of pictures.

Gaia Health Foods

Fitness, Fitness related - Anupriya kapur - April 11, 2017

As a blogger, I keep getting samples of various products time and again. However, I choose to write about the products I’m convinced about. Basically, the ones I know I’m most likely to buy in the future as well. Having said that, I do try and eat as well as serve more natural food at home but that’s not an option which works all the time. I received this health food hamper from GAIA last week, some things in it I was excited about and some not so much. So here it is: Continue Reading

No more apologies

Fitness, Fitness related, For the soul - Anupriya kapur - April 6, 2017

I face the problem of camel toe in most of my workout tights. In fact, for the longest time I rejected most of my workout tights because of that. It got me thinking that instead of comfort, women have to think about so many things when they should be concentrating on just getting fit. What’s worse is when I did a google search on camel toe most links that came up were on “How to hide the camel toe?” or “How to avoid embarrassment of a camel toe?”. So, here’s the list of things, I feel, as a woman, we should not be embarrassed about and ensure we support other women rather than shaming them. Continue Reading

When I met Haile Gebrselassie

Fitness, Fitness related, For the soul, Marathons - Anupriya kapur - April 4, 2017

The night before I was to meet Haile Gebrselassie, I was a little uncertain about what I might talk to him about. It was a great opportunity for sure and I respect the man immensely for his endless achievements. But I didn’t get the kind of a feel that I did when I was to meet Nitin Rawat or Scott Jurek, where I was waking up in the middle of the night and writing down the questions that I would ask. I finally realised that the reason was that as a recreational runner there was nothing different to ask him and it would only be a small variation over what I have mostly read about him. So, I decided to wing it. Continue Reading
