To all the survivors of the festive season. Completely knackered or in the need of a proper detox? No need to book in into a fancy rehab resort in Knysna, ThinkFood! Together with the The V&A Market on the Wharf (MOTW) we’ll get you back on your feet, ready to face another year:
New Years Resolution ThinkFood30 Challenge
We all know how frustrating it is to face another year, realising that your New Year Resolutions havn’t actually changed much. It seems as if trapped in a continuum with a slight downhill slope, which most of us just perceive as getting old. A few more aches and pains, a bigger pair of pants and more stress at work. ThinkFood30 combats a lot of apparently age, stress, chronic condition related symptoms by alleviating the causal factors: food – which you can’t just stomach anymore.
Exclude the usual suspects involved in allergic or gut-disrupting reactions.
These inflammatory food-groups unbalance your hormones and disrupt your bodily homeostasis – in other words – you are way off balance and your body will show you that it’s not doing all that well by getting bigger, being sore and clouding up your head. If you’ve ever had one of those days when getting out of bed already needs convincing, getting your limbs into gear without pain takes about half an hour, your eyes won’t open up widely enough to spot the most recent pimple and it’s hard to remember where you’ve put your cup of coffee, try ThinkFood30 instead of waiting on unfulfilled New Years Resolutions. Eliminating certain food-groups will allow your body to heal, recovering from the otherwise constant fire you were feeding: systemic inflammation.
Combating systemic inflammation will change your life.
Your metabolism isn’t slower than somebody else’s or you weren’t genetically blessed with a faster one, everyone can optimize their metabolism according to their own needs. This will change your relationship to food, your own body, your habits, your sleeping patterns and your mood-states – not just because you look all ripped and pimple-free, but because your brain chemistry is set on positive, high volume capacity again.
Paleo Gourmet sessions and kick-off talks
ThinkFood and MOTW challenges the market community to a New Years Resolution that will work– and you don’t have to do on your own. Are you a staff member, a vendor or a friend of the market? Let us help you lead a healthier life, enabling you to actually fulfill those resolutions instead of just thinking about them. You are welcome to join us for one of the two kick-off talks in January.

14th Jan 2013, 10:00, Mezzanine Level at the V&A Market on the Wharf or
