Friday's Food for Thought #010

Reading How Not to Die, watching Elon Musk at TED, and testing overnight oats.

A happy welcome to episode ten of Friday's Food for Thought: three things you could be doing right now to live a happy, healthy, and successful life.

With this year's average open rate of 66%, I am happy that my newsletter is well-read. 🙏 Thank you for that. Because that is what fulfills me in writing: to share knowledge that is consumed.

What I am reading

In addition to showing what to eat to help prevent the top 15 causes of death, How Not to Die by Michael Greger includes Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen—a checklist of the foods we should try to consume every day. These doctor's orders are just what you and I need to live longer, healthier lives.

What I am Watching

In March, during five separate sessions I co-hosted at Nyenrode Business University, I asked students: "Which entrepreneur inspires you the most?" Over half of the students chose Elon Musk. That's why I was excited to watch this recent interview. Have you watched it? What do you get out of it? Does Musk inspire you? I'd love to hear from you via Twitter (Elon Musk signals with $46.5 billion he’s serious about buying Twitter).

What I am Testing

Overnight oats are the least processed, highest fiber content, and keep your stomach filled for a more extended period. It even helps in cleaning out your digestive tract. The high resistant starch content ensures faster fat burning and increases the body's insulin level. I added more cinnamon and extra blueberries - to get used to its taste versus the cooked oatmeal I usually eat. Tip: Dr. Greger's website includes a recipe for overnight oats.

In Session - The Lounge 2022

I also present the In Session; the first episode is a progressive house set for work, in the car, or when reading Dr. Gregors' How Not to Die wherever you are. I hope you like the sound and give it a thumbs up on YouTube!
