British Sandwich Week is a week-long celebration of the greatest food to go and quite possibly the most iconic British culinary invention, the Sandwich.

Ever since John Montague, the 4th Earl of Sandwich ordered cold beef between slices of toast, to avoid getting up from his cards game, his name has become synonymous with the delectable dish.

In today’s world  we want to get on with our lives and grab a sandwich, the ultimate food to go. So much so that in Britain alone we buy over 3.5 billion sandwiches a year.

Whether you experiment with healthy home made or bought, sandwiches are a popular food to take to work and many people will happily snack on their sandwich at their desk over their lunch break.
The British Chiropractic Association has some great advice for desk hoggers looking to maximise their lunchbreaks.

Whether it is a walk in the park, or hike in the hills, enjoy the health benefits of walking and make every step count!

Now that the days are longer and warmer, it is time to grab your dog and possibly a raincoat and get yourself outside to enjoy our beautiful countryside.

Not only is walking simple and free, it is also one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight (if needed) and become healthier. Walking is ideal for all age groups and all levels of fitness, what a great way to spend some healthy family time!

 

According to the NHS, “Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.”

 It is recommended by the NHS that you start slowly and try to build your walking regime gradually. To get the best health benefits from walking, it needs to be of moderate-intensity activity. In other words, it needs to be faster than a stroll.

Set yourself a goal and try to walk 10,000 steps a day, if you would like to track this and don’t have a smart watch, there are some fun apps available as a free download. Here is the “PACER” app to start you off on your adventures. Read More >
