Posted by on in Health, Jamaica | 0 comments

Ever so often we go through a period of over-abundance in our diet, probably because of a vacation or holiday weekend or some other special occasion, and in these times, we wear out our liver and intestines with food and alcohol that is detrimental to our health and our bodies. After I go through one of these periods in my life, I always do what I call a detox day, to try and flush excess toxins from my body and get ready for my usual healthy eating and lifestyle. It really is best to do a minimum of three days to give ourselves a chance to heal and detoxify, but for those of you new to green smoothies, I challenge you to just one day. Here are a few benefits to be gained from detoxifying your body with a few green smoothies:

UBTandR Latest: Lunch in 9.58 or it’s free

Posted by on in Jamaica | 0 comments

Always one with the special promotions aimed at keeping customers happy, Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records Sports Bar has a new lunch promotion for you to try. They think they can serve you lunch in 9.58 minutes and if they fail, the bill is on them. They’ll even give you a stopwatch so that you can track the time. The catch is that you have to order from a certain lunch menu which is in itself pretty basic and made up of foods that are mostly pre-prepared and easy to throw together, like jerk chicken and pork platters, spring rolls, quesadillas and pastas.

Soul in the Sun Night 2 Recap: Can you woo woo woo?

Posted by on in Jamaica | 0 comments

Soul in the Sun Night Two saw the greats come out in their legendary style. You could tell we were in a whole new world of music here when everybody came out in a suit and the lone woman on the show was in a sparkly skirt and heels. We were amongst iconic entertainers who know exactly what it takes to entertain. Their level of respect and appreciation for their craft shone right through. The night begun for me with an epic performance from Jamaica’s own icon Richie Stephens. I spoke with him briefly after his performance and asked what his secret was for longevity in the music business, because I mean, Richie Stephens is Jamaica’s go-to RnB man.
