On June 9th I’m going to row a marathon as part of the @tearfundnz Poverty Cycle. I was drawn to take part after learning about how bad the human trafficking and exploitation situation is globally - currently there are about 25 million people trapped in forced labour, of which 4.8 million (the population of NZ ) are enslaved in forced sexual exploitation! WTF! I honestly find it so disappointing and disgusting that humans are still treated this way. So I’m going to jump in a boat (virtually ) with my buddy @drews .daily.dose to complete the distance of one of the major human trafficking routes, from Thailand to Laos. . If you also want to be a voice for some of these vulnerable people and to raise some money to help fight for their freedom then take part in the Poverty Cycle too! It starts tomorrow and runs for two weeks. Head yo povertycycle.org.nz and make a team and take part. And if you want to sponsor Drew and I then hit the link in my bio 🤙
First team adventure post lockdown. Taking the Subaru Outback X for a spin down to the lake - luckily it has a built in nappy change table in the boot. 👨👩👦🐶 @subaru_nz
This is one of my favourite workouts to do at home with minimal equipment. 🎵: @dan_aux

Heres a selfie of me in front of a sauna - seemed normal at the time but now it seems a little bit weird, but anyway - I had a decent 25min sauna today after a workout to boost my immune system and my longevity. If you want a good podcast about immunity and a dive into the positive effects of sauna, vitamin D, and some other stuff then definitely give @joerogan ‘s latest podcast with Dr. Rhonda Patric ( @foundmyfitness ) a listen. Very interesting.
Happy first Mother’s Day @matootles 👨👩👦💕 so far so good.

Last night I baked some hot crozzies and this morning we tasted the fruits of my labour. I don't understand why hot cross buns are reserved for Easter, I think they should be an all year round thing on account of their deliciousness, who's with me? I used the recipe in the last frame from @littleandfriday but substituted regular flour for @ceresorganics spelt flour and it worked a treat! #sp #ceresorganics

And that’s a wrap. @thebachelorette_nz season one done and dusted with the airing of the After The Final Rose special last night. So much love and respect for @dr_lesina and @lilymcmanus along with all of the guys - it takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there like they all did. Very stoked for Lily and Richie 💕. And a huge thanks to @tvnz .official and the crew involved - I thoroughly loved working on this show and mostly because you were so great to work with. Hope to see you back for another season sometime soon...
When it comes to maintaining my immune system there are a few things that I do - number one is getting enough sleep (easier said than done with a 6 month old haha ), followed by eating well (for me this means predominantly paleo ) and being physically active everyday. One other thing I like to do at times when I'm starting to feel a little sick or if there are a few bugs floating round is to make this immunity boosting tonic. The main ingredient is Apple Cider Vinegar which I've been taking for a few years now (1 Tbsp every morning ) to maintain a healthy gut and immune system (you want to find an apple cider vinegar that contains "the mother" which is the beneficial bacteria that is good for the gut - I use @ceresorganics ) - the other ingredients are all thought to have immunity boosting and/or antibacterial properties, and this recipe (below ) is one that I've tinkered around with to make something that I like (I say "like" loosely as it tastes pretty intense 🤯 ). Disclaimer, I'm not a doctor, and there is no science to prove that this tonic will keep you well - I'm just a guy that's interested in researching and practicing natural/holistic health and am always happy to share my findings and thoughts with those that are interested. . IMMUNITY BOOSTER TONIC - makes 1 cup . -1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar -1/2 cup Lemon Juice - 1tsp Ginger (finely grated or minced ) - 1tsp Manuka Honey - 1tsp Turmeric Powder - 1tsp Cayenne Pepper - 1tsp Black Pepper (finely ground ) - 2 drops of Oregano Oil . Dose - 1-2 tablespoons / day . @ceresorganics #ceresorganics #applecidervinegar #ACV #sp
