Fresh Vegetables Day- 16 June

Fresh vegetables are an important component of our diet, and studies show that to maintain a healthy and long-lasting lifestyle, eat at least 5 servings of fresh vegetables a day in five colors: green, red, orange, white and purple.

The vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber and therefore protect our bodies from disease. June 16 is the day of fresh vegetables, the day when we recommend a change and start enriching our meals with fresh vegetables around the clock.

The fresh vegetable day is celebrated at the beginning of the summer, when the vegetables are the most delicious and abundant. No matter how, in salad, whole, chic or whatever way you like, be sure to eat plenty of fresh vegetables to keep you healthy.

No Diet Day- May 6

May 6 is a day devoted to raising awareness of the dangers of unbalanced diet.
An unbalanced diet designed to lose weight quickly, or a diet based on too few calories, or the failure to eat some essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats, can cause the body irreversible damage.


The No Diet Day was initiated by Mary Evans Young from England, a woman who recovered from anorexia, and has been celebrated since 1992. This day is actually designed to encourage us to accept our body as it is, without making harmful diets, even if we have a few extra pounds. On this day we should stop and think if the low calorie diets we do do not harm us or endanger us, and whether we get all the food, minerals and vitamins we need on our daily menu.
The No Diet day is marked by feminist groups in several countries around the world, including the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Israel, Denmark and Brazil.


The goals of the No Diet Day are:  
To stimulate the discussion of whether there is only one "correct" body shape.  
Raise awareness of discrimination against high-weight people, and fat phobia.  
Declare a free day from diets and obsessions related to body weight.  
Present the facts about the diet industry, emphasizing the inefficiency of commercial diets.  
Respect the victims of eating disorders and weight loss analyzes. 
How will we celebrate this day?
First of all, we will celebrate and love our body as it is.
We will listen to our body and eat according to the signs of hunger and satiety it sends us.
We will do a soul-searching about what we do to our bodies when we do diets as a meal.
We'll think about the future, how we want our body to be in a few years. Do we want to be healthy as adults or sick and weak?
We'll learn a little about why diets do not work.
We will eat tasty and nutritious food that we love and will not regret it.
While eating, we will chew well and concentrate on the taste of the food.
While eating, we will do nothing else.
Avoid talking about diets, weight and fat.
We'll do something physical that we really like.
Start loving your body on May 6th, say good-bye to the harmful diets and you know what, go on like this all your life, because your body is beautiful how it is!


Cereal Day- March 7

What is your favorite cereal? There are hundreds of types of cereal, sweet, salted, whole-grain cereals, with food coloring, stuffed with chocolate, in different forms, there is simply no end to it.

Cereal Day honors the invention of the brothers William and John Kellogg (the founders of Kelloggs) at the end of the 19th century who invented the Cornflakes by mistake .

The story behind the invention

Corn was a major component of the Hopi diet, the natives of America.

The erroneous invention of the Cornflakes brings us to the late 1890s, when an Adventist mission (Protestants who believe in the Second Coming of Jesus) began developing new foods to meet their vegetarian diet standards.

The team members experimented with several types of cereals such as wheat, rice, barley and corn.

In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who was in charge of the Seattle resort of Battle Creek, also an Adventist, used these recipes as part of the strict vegetarian diet that he had imposed on his patients, which also included alcohol, tobacco and caffeine.

The idea of ​​cornflakes came up accidentally when Dr. Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg left wheat porridge in the oven, forgot about it and turned to their burning business at their convalescent home.

When they returned two days later, they discovered that the porridge had dried and aged, but because they were very careful about their budget, they decided not to give it up and continue with its processing. They went over the dry dough with a rolling pin, hoping to reach the shape of long pages. To their surprise, what they were getting was flakes, which they ate and served to their patients. This event occurred on August 8, 1894, and the crushed cereal patent was registered on 31 May 1895.

In 1906, they found investors and set up a company to make cornflakes that changed its name to Kellogs (known and successful cornflakes company until now) in 1922.

Millions of people around the world eat cereal for breakfast and some for dinner or a snack. Among all types of cereals there are actually healthy ones that contain whole grains, fiber and protein.

Did you know? London has a cafe where only cornflakes are served from all over the world (link)

Did you know? Like snowflakes, cornflakes are different from each other and no two are the same.

How many cornflakes are in the box? Artist Luke Stephenson counted and found that a box of Kellogg's cornflakes (500 grams) contained 7,122 flakes. He also photographed some of them to show how the shape of each flake is unique and special.

How to celebrate Cereal day?
All you need to do to celebrate the cereal day is to take a bowl, fill it with your favorite cereal, sit on the sofa with your legs up and eat it.
