Sharing from Mark Hyman, MD page...
-------------------------------------------
Dr Hyman says...
This is my favorite quick and easy lunch.
It’s called a fat salad and why do I call it a fat salad?
It’s full of powerful plant-based compounds that help you stay healthy and fats that help you stay full and speed up your metabolism.

The beauty of this meal is, that you don’t need a whole fancy kitchen. You just need a knife and a couple of spoons.

The key is to have all the staple ingredients in your kitchen that stay good for a long time at all times such as olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, pumpkin seeds, mustard, and canned artichokes.
But you also want to go get fresh ingredients like tomatoes or avocados. I like to use arugula because I don’t have to chop it — I can just throw it right in. If I want extra protein, I like to add canned wild salmon because it’s fast and easy.
I never buy store-bought salad dressing because it has a lot of gums, fillers, sugar, and soybean oil.


I usually throw some olive oil on top with a little bit of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. You can add mustard, tahini, or lemon for different flavors.

Consumer NZ are distributing free “Do Not Knock” stickers as part of a campaign to fight back against dodgy door-to-door traders. This campaign grew out of serious complaints about door-to-door traders selling grossly overpriced products – often to the people who can least afford them.

The stickers can be put on your letterbox, front door – or anywhere prominent – to warn door-to-door sellers not to knock.
Any door-to-door seller that ignores a “Do Not Knock” sticker faces a fine of up to $30,000.

Head to their website www.consumer.org.nz , order your sticker or order some for your friends and family, and learn more: Do Not Knock | Know the issue - Consumer NZ

Banks not cancelling direct debits 03/08/2022

Banks not cancelling direct debits

Did you know you can tell your bank to cancel a direct debit at any time?
This is good to know if you can't meet your payments.
BUT please know that; cancelling a direct debit doesn't let you off your bills, you still have to pay - it just helps to avoid default fees on an empty account.
Remember to communicate with your creditors and let them know what's happened - the sooner the better - and ask, ‘Look, this is what’s happened, can we work something out?’

Want more help?
