Jane Goodall Institute: Make a Difference for a Better World

June 14, 2017

 

The greatest danger to our future is apathy. –Jane Goodall

Today at The Ultimate Kaiser, I would like to talk to you about the Jane Goodall Institute, a global community conservation organization with a message important to each and everyone of us. To make an impact in the lives of those who need it most, to work together to improve the lives of people, animals and the environment. And a big part of that is to work on restoring critical habitats, that will save chimpanzees from extinction. When you support the Jane Goodall Institute, you make real change happen for people, animals and the natural world we all share. Now is the time to take a stand and make a difference for a better world.

Jane Goodall has dedicated over 55 years to animal sciences and ethology, with a strong focus on chimpanzees and human impact on the environment. Her groundbreaking work and research with chimpanzees has redefined the relationship between humans and animals. Thus in 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute, to advocate for animals, the environment and to protect chimpanzees from extinction. Amongst its goals the Jane Goodall Institute aims to protect the environment, restore chimpanzee habitats, and empower nearby communities through education and access to family planning, high-quality healthcare and clean water.

Dr. Jane Goodall and Roots & Shoots members plant trees at the Shanghai Zoo in China.

As you can see, this is definitely a cause worth supporting. A cause that will and has been making a difference in lives, both animal and human, for years! It takes a tremendous amount of resources to make an impact, and any donation will help.  Show your support today and let the world know that a kind heart can make a difference, that we can make an impact for both ourselves and future generations!

Thank you for your help and for reading and sharing this important message. And now back to sharing my gastronomic and travel experiences with you at The Ultimate Kaiser– one post at a time. Cheers!

Summer Fitness: Quick Workout Ideas From Flodins

June 14, 2017

 

 

It’s summer time in Hong Kong and the days and nights are at their busiest! Eating healthy is a snap with Flodins amazingly tasty and nutritious Omega-3 pork, but fitting in your workout can seem impossible. And what do we say to that? You can always carve out 5 minutes of your time for some fitness! It’s best if you’re able to take several 5-minute workout breaks throughout the day, because it all adds up. Maybe you think 5 minutes isn’t enough – but it is! Change your mindset; some progress is better than none.

 

So set your Omega-3 pork to simmer for delicious Twice-cooked Szechuan Style Pork(click for recipe!) and get in one of these 5 minute workouts! In 30mins you can have a delicious dinner ready for your family along with a quick training session.

 

Read on for suggestions on fitting in a 5 minute workout wherever you are, whether it’s simply a busy day at work or your traveling on holiday:

 

  • Squats and/or Push-ups:  This is a 5-minute total-body workout you can do anywhere no need for any equipment. Try 30 seconds of squats followed by 30 seconds of push-ups and repeat it five times. Didn’t think you could work up a sweat so fast, did you?!
  • Walk and Talk: Make personal or business phone calls more productive- while on the phone, start walking up and down stairs. Also consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator when possible. Tone those legs and get your heart rate up a bit!
  • Split Squat Jumps:  With feet hip-width apart, step the left leg back two feet and balance on the ball of the foot. Next, lower into a lunge, and then accelerate upwards in an explosion of celebration. While in the air, switch feet so that the left foot is planted firmly in front and the right leg is now behind. Repeat 10-12 times on each side. Maybe you can motivate some of your colleagues to join you as well. That little burst of movement can help clear your mind and boost your energy! Think about trying this out before grabbing that afternoon cup of coffee.

 

 

  • Plank Time: Hold a plank for 40 seconds, rest for 20 seconds and repeat five times. You can even do this at work if you want to. There are so many different plank variations, it’s easy to mix it up and try five different ones.

 

Now you are ready for a fabulous fit summer! Looking for another quick meal? Try this lovely Pork Loin “Sandwich” with Crispy Flavourful Nordic Crust(Click for Recipe!)  or Pork Collar Roast Salad with Sweet and Sour Cucumber(Click for Recipe!). Both of these recipes offer amazing flavors the whole family with love- as long as you use Flodins super tender and tasty Omega-3 pork!

Napue Gin makes the deceptively simple G&T far from ordinary!

June 14, 2017

 

Gin and Tonic… there is no other spirit that comes close to its fine quality and taste, or rather say, it’s impossible to imagine any other like it. Even when reduced it to three simple characters, G&T, everyone still understands what you are talking about. However, just because G&T seems simple, doesn’t mean that it’s ordinary! What could be as sweet as a misty morning meadow, with a gentle warmth and the scents and flavours of the quintessential Finnish forests? It’s Napue Gin- the world’s best gin for G&T! Originating from the world’s northernmost gin and whisky distillery in the rural village of Isokyrö, Finland; Napue Gin has been awarded “Best Gin for Gin and Tonic” at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC). Napue Gin is now available in Hong Kong thanks to Food Linkers. Food Linkers helps Europe’s food and beverage brands to connect with Asian consumers.

The basic recipe is quite refreshing, simply mix Napue Gin and Fever Tree tonic water, pour over ice and add your garnish. We recommend throwing in a handful of cranberries, along with a rosemary sprig. A ratio of Gin to Tonic is typically 1:3, but if you want something boozier, try a 1:2 ratio- experiment to find your perfect taste!

Traditionally Gin and Tonic is garnished with a slice or wedge of lime or lemon. But you can and should try other garnishes to please your palate- and for variety! Garnishes can boost, accentuate or even contrast the flavour of your drink depending on your mood. Add an orange wheel and clove for summery flavour, or consider adding flat leaf coriander along with lemon, which can add a little zing while providing leafy depth. Add a grapefruit peel, rosemary sprig or a lavender stem if you want a garden-fresh and pretty looking herbal gin.

Choosing quality ingredients is important. Napue is a full bodied spirit with a herbal sweet taste and hints of sea-buckthorn, cranberries, pepper, rye and birch leaves. All of these ingredients along with the low northern sun and length of day in the Finnish summer creates a special intensity of flavor in the wild botanicals. Once you taste the complex, yet simple flavors of Napue Gin, you’ll need a moment to appreciate the clean, fresh finish.

You can find Napue Gin at several bars and restaurants across Hong Kong(Ozone Bar, Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour, The Pawn, Lilya, The Iron Fairies, Ophelia, Aberdeen Street Social, Brickhouse, MyHouse, FINDS), or you can order it online at from either HK Liquor Store or The Tramline Liquor Co and try the award-winning recipe at home- impressing friends and colleagues!

Post-Workout Nutrition Strategy

June 14, 2017

 

Just as your thoughts regulate your intentions, your food regulates your actions. If you’re a yogi who thinks he/she can practice yoga without maintaining proper nutrition, think again! Yoga poses are, without a doubt, one of the most beneficial regimens, which along with healthy food can boost the process and help you create your ideal body shape much quicker! In fact, eating the right food and wearing the right clothing is the fundamental part of a Yogi’s life. To help you achieve your goal, A Day with Fé is all set to fulfill your mantra by delivering stylish yet comfortable clothing for people seeking an active,  mindful journey.

  A simple snack of apples and nut butter is a great post-workout snack!

 

The saying ‘you are what you eat’ fits right into a yogi’s life because food not only influences your physical health, but also affects your emotions and spirituality. Water saves your body from dehydration, and helps you maintain your body efficacy even after workout! If you’re planning a post-workout nutrition regimen, choose some good calories for plenty of activity and eat as soon as possible. Believe it or not, the key to any healthy lifestyle is getting the proper amount of each nutrient your body needs, and the harder you work out, the more it uses. Nutrient timing is simply a way to help your body perform at its best and get the results you want to see. Do your research, find a meal plan that works for you and get to work!

Now that your meal plan is all set, why not reconsider your athleisure too? You should always feel comfortable in your regular yoga clothes, and A Day with Fé clothing is designed with your comfort in mind! So, right now is the time to say goodbye to your old clothes and say hello to some brilliant, cozy, and mindful apparel from Fe. It’s a guarantee that you’ll enjoy your session way more than before – with better food and better clothes!
