Half of the battle when it comes to cooking is with your attitude. Anybody who has the ability to read a cookbook is capable of preparing nutritious, healthy meals. If you maximise your productivity and time, then you can actually turn cooking into an enjoyable pastime.

The trick is to look at your recipes and menus for the week, and decide how much preparation you can do ahead of time. A good idea is to do most of your food prep work on a lazy Sunday. This will ensure the cooking for the rest of the week will be very simple.

Give your products a good wash. Look at your recipes and decide which fresh vegetables you will need and process them as required. Repeat the same process for all of your fresh products. If you use a vacuum sealer, then all the chopping and slicing can be done for the entire week in just the one afternoon. There will be no loss of food quality or taste, due to the vacuum pouches.

The next thing to do is divide up your meat into portions that are meal sized. Vacuum seal the portions into pouches and freeze it for later use in the coming week.

Once all your ingredients are prepared and packaged, label the meals for whatever day of the week you are planning on having them. The night before a certain meal, take out the required package from the freezer and put with the package of other ingredients. The meat should defrost during the next day, ready for your evening meal. This will mean that your dinner can be made in less than half an hour, just enough time for your kids to wash their hands and your partner to set the table.

When you have done all the washing up, the last thing you should do is move the next day’s food pouch into the next day’s meal bag in the refrigerator, ready for it to defrost overnight. This means that all the next day’s ingredients will be in the same place, ready to be made.

Although theres more to the islands of Tanzania than just Zanzibar, Zanzibar enchants and fascinates with its oriental mystique and forgotten exoticism — the very name evokes the Spice Islands and the dhow trade, sultans and palaces built of limestone and coral against the palm trees and the crashing surf.

Zanzibars coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world, but sand and surf vary depending on what side of the island youre on. On the east coast, waves break over coral reefs and sand bars offshore, and low tide reveals small pools of starfish, small minnows, and anemones.

Up north, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides, and smooth beaches and white sand make for dazzling days in the sun. Portuguese invasion and control of the Swahili Coast in the late 16th century ended the golden age of the archipelago, although the Omani Arabs returned to power less than a century later.

The port city of Stone Town dominates the west coast, and although the beaches of Mangapwani, where slave caves are visible at low tide and nearby Bububu are less than half an hours drive away, a night or two spent on the east or north cost is well worth the extra hour it takes to drive there.

That said, the Chole Island Marine Park just off Stone Town and nearby Prison, Grave, and Snake Islands make a refreshing day-trip and a good break from exploring the winding passageways of the old city.

On the south coast of Zanzibar lies the Menai Bay Conservation Area, a sea turtle protection area for the endangered species that come to breed on the island. Roads to the southeast coast take visitors through the Jozani Forest, home to Zanzibars rare Red Colobus monkeys and a number of other primate and small antelope species.

Today, many of the winding streets and high town houses of old Stone Town remain unchanged and you can walk between the sultans palace, the House of Wonders, the Portuguese fort and gardens, the merchants houses, and the Turkish baths of the old city.

Day-long spice tours to working plantations offer visitors the chance to observe the cultivation of cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices that have made the island famous.

Do you know that two thirds of your body is made up of water? Without water we would die. Some estimates say that the average person could die without water in 4 days. We need to drink water every day because we lose it from our bodies in many different ways. We can lose up to 3 litres of water every day through sweating, urinating and even when we breathe.

The body can also produce a litre of water to process, digest and absorb the food we eat. However, body loses more water than it can produce. In some cases it is estimated that the average person could be short of between 1 to 2 litres of water a day.

Water plays an important role in cleansing the body of by products and waste. Water supports the functions of the liver and kidney to rid the body of toxins. If our bodies have a lack of water it can lead to many side affects which you may be familiar with. Lack of water in the body leads to dehydration. Dehydration can cause conditions such as tiredness, headaches, constipation and mental fog.

Water plays an important role in regulating the bodys temperature. A lack of water can make your body hotter which can lower your ability to focus and concentrate. Long term dehydration can also lead to other conditions that can include ulcers and aching joints. It can also increase the levels of allergic reactions such as asthma.

Many people drink water when they feel thirsty. However, the thirst signal is not an accurate indicator because your body is already dehydrated. When you do a lot of physical exercise you also use up a lot more liquid to produce energy and you lose a lot through sweating. During physical activities you should be drinking more water to make up for this loss.

Drinking more water than your body needs can be as unhealthy as drinking too little. Drinking too much water can put added stress and pressure on certain organs such as the liver and the kidneys. In some cases too much water or over hydration can even kill you. Excess water can also wash out too much sodium from our bodies. Sodium is very important to maintain the health and functioning of the body and its organs.

So how much water should we be drinking to maintain a healthily functioning body? It is recommended that we should drink 6 to 8 250 millilitres of fresh clean filtered water per day.
