People tend to get so busy with the day-to-day stress in their lives that they ignore their health.
Physical as well as mental health often take the backseat, especially the latter one.
Picking everything over one’s own health might temporarily work for the general population, but superheroes cannot afford to ignore it.
“Part of your training includes ensuring that you have all enough strength and energy to fight a super enemy and recover quickly after the fights. So, while we train you every night, you must promise to include COASTED in your daily diet from now on,” A Minute explained the importance of the superfoods to the One Minuters.
C – Carrots: For bone health, vision, better immune system, blood pressure management and energy
O – Oats: For better heart health and a healthy gut; especially for Tim who would consume almost everything
A – Almonds: For bone health and brain, and relieving anxiety
S – Spinach: For bone health, vision, energy and anti-inflammatory properties
T – Turmeric: For better memory, pain relief and heart health
E – Eggs: For strong muscles, vision, heart health, better memory and energy
D – Dates: For energy and anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-bleeding properties; necessary for the superheroes after fighting the evil superpowers.
Planning everything perfectly was A Minute’s forte and, for relieving stress, she suggested some relaxation techniques, getting proper sleep and Saturday fun sessions; she would have been a successful stand-up comedienne if she was a person.
“Pay us for our efforts in training you by strictly following the relaxation techniques and a COASTED inclusive diet. Those who skip these will bear the brunt of whatever is approaching you. This is not a movie or a comic book, this is real,” The Voice sounded very serious.
Preparing for The Command’s inevitable approach was getting more real as Dev realised one thing, “True, all those superhero movies just show action, no one shows any superhero eating or resting, ever!”
“Perhaps, you would want your kid Keith to eat these superfoods as well Beth. These are all, in any case, good for kids. After all, The Command is waiting to try and use him as a host. Keith must be strong both physically and mentally,” A Minute added.
The story continues tomorrow in the next post. Did you notice that I managed to start each sentence of this chapter of the story with the letter P (I have managed to do the same from the B letter post)! This is my 16th post for this year’s A to Z Challenge (#atozchallenge). Head to my previous posts to read the entire story.
