Today’s breakfast was amazing. I met up with my cousin in this Paleo restaurant because she’s really into all of that healthy eating thing. I had the Protein waffles with my favorite summer fruit combination and lots of sugar-free maple syrup. It looked so pretty I couldn’t resist to take a picture.
I also had a coffee with almond milk and it was delicious. That’s really weird for me to say because I’m not very much into the Paleo diet or that hype of avoiding dairy, sugar and gluten. I tried it in the past but I felt completely miserable (and I’m not even allergic to any of those foods). That is why I make sure to have my coffee with whole milk these days, because it tastes delicious.
In case you didn’t notice, I read a lot. I’m constantly reading random stuff and I don’t even know how I find the time to do it. So I guess sharing some of that stuff in here might turn all of that slacking time into a more productive task.
Here are the most interesting articles I read today:
- The IRS to Michael Phelps: “You Didn’t Win That.” Have you heard about how much taxes do athletes have to pay for every medal won in the 2016 Olympic Games? It’s crazy, specially for someone like Michael Phelps. It all comes down to a matter of ethics. You represent your country in this major event. And after training for a lifetime to be the best, you win. Now you have to give something back for all the effort you did. Is this fair to you? If your answer is yes, then is it fair to you that somebody else decides on your behaf?
- How Effective is Treadmill Running Compared to Running Outside? I get that question asked A LOT. And to be honest I have no idea. I run in the treadmill most of the times. But I don’t really notice any difference when I run outside, except for the weather conditions. So, I went ahead and looked up this old article that contains an explanation of somebody who really knows. Apparently there is a difference, but I’ guess I’ll be able to evidence it as soon as the Florida summer ends and I hit the roads more often.
- Is Terrorism Getting Worst? In the West, Yes. In the World, No. Even though this article is merely based on statistic and is not really that much biased as I expected, I do think terrorism is something we need to worry about. Even if we’re facing it in lower scales than previous decades. However, the facts exposed by the author are pretty interesting.
- You’re Right, I Didn’t Eat That. How much do women sacrifice for staying thin? Not only to achieve happiness for themselves but to obtain men’s approval. This article shows a really sad reality in ladies of our generation. I you’re a woman and you feel related to this, please reconsider if this is the life you wish to have in the best years of your life.
