You could call it a secret sauce, or the sizzle on the steak, or even the 11 herbs and spices. It’s about the accidental conversations we have post swim, and how they add the secret ingredient to a delicious swim. This morning we talked about growth mindset, the choice we... Continue reading

Hi Simon I ate meat two or three times a week mainly steak and chicken. The only meet A now is fresh caught Alaskan salmon. Or meat and fish gets its protein for vegetables and seaweed. In the process it takes for the animal to translate the plant protein in animal protein gives us an extra chemicals that aren’t useful for us long-term. The most apprising thing for me about the vegan diet, it’s not makes you feel. You feel much more at peace And much healthier at the same time .
Roger is a naughty boy.
