Weekly Round-Up #125: Superfoods, What Does Your Desk Say & Clean Air

Hello, and welcome to this week’s round-up. This week we take a look at some simple food swaps you can make to make your food “Super” healthy, what your desk style says about you and how you can check your air quality from your smartphone

uHoo Indoor Air Toxin Sensor* – uHoo

Note that this won’t filter the air for you, but it will give you a heads up if there’s loads of dust particles floating around your appartment and you can view the data on your smartphone from anywhere.

I try to eat as healthily as possible (apart from you, Broccoli! You’re not welcome here!) as it’s surprising the number of foods that you probably eat on a regular basis that are really good for you. If you don’t think that you’re eating as healthy as you could be then why not try small food swaps, like dropping potatoes and eating asparagus instead, swap white rice for brown or milk chocolate for dark chocolate (see it’s not all bad and boring!)
