THE LIFE PLUG: What are carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates are the sugars, starches and fibers found in fruits, grains, vegetables and milk products. Though often maligned in trendy diets, carbohydrates — one of the basic food groups — are important to a healthy diet.

"Carbohydrates are macronutrients, meaning they are one of the three main ways the body obtains energy, or calories," said Paige Smathers, a Utah-based registered dietitian. The American Diabetes Association notes that carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. They are called carbohydrates because, at the chemical level, they contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
There are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein and fats, Smathers said. Macronutrients are essential for proper body functioning, and the body requires large amounts of them. All macronutrients must be obtained through diet; the body cannot produce macronutrients on its own.

Celebrating International Day Of Rural Women (IDORW) With The National Movement Of Rural Women

The National Movement of Rural Women invites members of the press to celebrate International Day of Rural Women (IDoRW) on the 15th of October 2020.

Observed since 2008, IDoRW – established by the United Nations General Assembly in its Resolution 62/136 of 18 December 2007 – recognises “the critical role and contribution of rural women, including indigenous women, in enhancing agricultural and rural development, improving food security and eradicating rural poverty.”

The South African government believes that rural women play a critical role in the rural economies of both developed and developing countries. In most parts of the developing world, they participate in crop production and livestock care, provide food, water and fuel for their families’ livelihoods. In additions, they carry out vital functions in caring for children, the elderly and the sick.

THE LIFE PLUG: How To Stop Feeling Guilty After Eating

Whilst we all look forward to having a tasty treat, many of us feel guilty after eating our favourite foods. From freaking out about calories to obsessing over body image, it’s not uncommon to feel anxious after eating. However, whilst having a healthy body is important, a healthy mind is also key to maintaining the perfect balance.

To help you adopt a more positive mindset when it comes to food, we’ll explore why feelings of guilt occur and how you can banish them for good.

Why we feel guilty after eating
When we’re trying to stick to a healthy diet plan, it can often feel like temptation is everywhere. Restricting certain foods from our diet means we feel like we’re failing by giving in to those cravings, ultimately leading to feelings of guilt.1 Feeling guilty is a natural response to behaving badly, and by associating certain foods with ‘good’ and ‘bad’ behaviour, we’re punishing ourselves as a result.

Young Womxn Studio Bursary, funded by Bag Factory alumni artist Sam
Nhlengethwa. They will share a fully funded studio bursary at the Bag

emerging womxn artists in South Africa. Taking into consideration the
challenges of the current global economic climate and the strength of the
applications received, we decided to maximise the benefit of this bursary by
offering it to two promising emerging womxn artists. We are thrilled that
Cheriese and Hemali were open to this proposal and they are both excited
at the prospect of working together in a creative environment that promotes
exchange and experimentation.

of artists this year as a result of the Coronavirus, so we have decided to
help support even more artists during this exceptionally difficult time.

The Food Pyramid The food pyramid shown here can be used to remind you of the food and drinks that you should consume regularly or only occasionally. The higher up the pyramid, the more you must moderate your intake of the food. At the bottom of the pyramid, sits water and all the ways it can be drunk, without moderation and at the top, there are all the foods that are the worst for the diet (e.g., fried foods, sugary drinks, pastries) that should be eaten very rarely.

Anna Marie Marks – Trace: Head Of Marketing and Sales

In a deliberate move to balance out the playing fields with their ongoing
commitment to gender equality, Trace today solidified its bold pledge to
institute TRACE 50_50 video airplay for woman's artists and other woman
produced content.
Following the decision taken by the team during Womxn’s Month in August,
Trace consequentially began slotting in more female produced content
across their channels. And with another substantial increase in September,
Trace can officially confirm the move from the previous 40/60 ratio to a
committed 50/50 on all their thematic shows now. Trace will also focus
more on womxn generated shows and music content, further pushing their
equal play agenda. 
A unique celebration of womxn talent - a first of its kind on the continent is
finally at our doorstep.
“Trace remains committed to celebrating and advancing Womxn in the
music industry to ensure inclusion and equality for all. We are
extremely excited about this movement, especially in light of Trace’s
ongoing commitment to create gender equality, Trace 50_50 just made
perfect sense in balancing out airplay for womxn in the industry”
shared Trace’s Managing Director – Southern Africa & Regional Director
Anglophone Africa Valentine Gaudin-Muteba,”, Yes it’s an audacious
move as a music channel, but we are here for it. We are here to lead
the change that is so desperately needed! At Trace we focus more on
walking the talk, with the hope of paving the way until all genders
have the same opportunities for airplay.”
