Wanna Go For David Beckham’s Fishfingers?

David Beckham has just launched his own line of healthy food GO3. While its vocal point is to get as much Omega-3 as you can, the diet also contains wholewheat and vegetables.

Daily Mail UK reports:

“Beckham has been blamed in the past for the rise in child obesity in the UK after appearing in ads for brands like Pepsi and Walkers crisps.

He said: ‘As a Dad I know how hard it is to get kids to eat the right things.

‘I also know as a footballer, how important it is to eat the right things to perform well, so I think the GO3 range is a great way to help families take some small steps to be fit and healthy at affordable prices.'”

He’s fit alright.

Lovers Caught on Lane: Orange & Banana

I just couldn’t help sharing this when I saw it in my email. Apparently Mr (or is it Mrs really?) Orange is found naked with Ms (or Mr, it’s hard to tell the gender of fruits) Banana half naked. Should this be called cross-racial or cross-breed relationship?

Simon’s Cat: TV Dinner

So there were ice-cream shooting cows and rabbit-like animals dancing. This time it’s the British Animation Award winning (for best comedy) ‘Simon’s Cat‘ brought to you by Tandem films director Simon Tofield. A hungry cat resorts to increasingly desperate measures to gain its owner’s attention. (All you cat owners out there will understand).

Ben & Jerry’s X Elton John: Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road

To honour Elton John for finally playing in Vermont, Ben & Jerry’s have created an ice cream flavor based off one of his greatest classics: Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road

The Associated Press reports: “The limited-batch ice cream, made from ‘an outrageous symphony of decadent chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks,’ is a take-off on his 1970s album and song ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.’ It will be available from July 18 to July 25 in the company’s Vermont scoop shops, with proceeds going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, officials said Tuesday.”

Jason Mraz and Coca Cola: Oxy Moron or Perfect Match?

Jason Mraz’s hit single I’m Yours has been featured in an Australian Coca Cola commercial. This has soon stirred up a heated controversy all over the internet. Apparently his diet consists of only all natural and non-processed food thus this endorsement of Coca Cola makes one wonder (Remember Jenna Jameson for PETA but carries a huge leather purse?) . Yet Mraz’s laid back style matches Coca Cola (and Australia!) perfectly. I don’t know, I love Jason Mraz and I love Coca Cola…

Mars Soil for Asparagus but not Strawberries

NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander discovered that a sample of Martian dirt contained several soluble minerals, including potassium, magnesium and chloride. This means the soil in Mars may have enough nutrients to grow plants. Asparagus would grow happily in it, scientists say.

BBC reports: “We basically have found what appears to be the requirements for nutrients to support life,” said Phoenix’s wet chemistry lab lead, Sam Kounaves of Tufts University. “This is the type of soil you’d probably have in your backyard. You might be able to grow asparagus pretty well, but probably not strawberries.”

Going Raw for 30 Days

The main goal of this experiment is to see if a vegan diet can reverse diabetes. To do this six McDonalds-munching Americans had to eat 100% vegan live foods for a month. The result? The diet has pretty much reversed or reduced their insulin dependence in only 30 days. The frightening part? The American Diabetes Association announced that “Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure” and yet here we are with examples of people getting better with dieting alone.

And yes, this diet is endorsed by Jason Mraz
