The Ultimate Superfoods For Poor Men And Minimalists: Sole Survival Hacks

Global warming is still going to take a hell lot of time to destroy the world, and we may not even see the apocalypse in our life span. But, it doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy our survival drama now.

Millions of people around the globe have decided to live alone and wait for the judgment day. They generally don’t eat sumptuous meals, because they are naturally poor or like to live like minimalists.

Being poor and alone cannot stop us from enjoying tasty and nutritious foods. There are some certain foods that are poor men’s ultimate sources of survival.

Eggs:

Eggs are Cheap, and they are available in abundance. They are also loaded with all the vital nutrients and vitamins.

Most importantly, they are the cheapest protein source available in the market. If eggs are your primary source of protein, then you can eat them as many as 6 eggs in a day.

New researches show that eggs are not as harmful as they were considered before. Eggs don’t really increase the cholesterol level, but they neutralize it in our bodies. Eggs are truly gifts for poor men.

Oats:

Though eggs are a great source of protein, oats are the most perfect combination of protein and carbohydrates. We cannot ignore and exclude the carbohydrates from our diet.

Carbohydrates or carbs give us quick energy. The energy that we need every day to walk and lift things and think rightly. Carbohydrates also hold some fats in our body. These fats help us survive in emergencies.

Thus, oat comes as a savior to poor men with its great source of protein and complex carbohydrates.

Bananas:

Monkeys love bananas, and bananas keep monkeys healthy and active all day. We humans can surely learn something from our distant cousins.

Bananas have got protein, carbohydrates, and all those vital vitamins packed together. Not just that, bananas are one of the greatest sources of natural fiber; fiber that we need for our bowel movement in the morning. On some occasions, bananas can replace our morning breakfast also.

Boiled Meat:

Meat is the naturally selected food of human beings. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors survived on meat for many many centuries. Vegetables and agriculture are a recently discovered phenomenon, as recently as 5000 BC.

So buy raw meat from the market, add a little salt, and some chilies or peppers, and boil it some cookware. No frills. Keep your meat clean and simple. Eat meat as our ancestors did. This is the way poor people survive with dignity.

Psyllium Husk and Flax:

Sometimes, poor men and minimalists need extra support of fiber to maintain gut health. Psyllium Husk and Flax seeds come to the rescue. Poor men and minimalists should take these superfoods as usually. Psyllium Husk also helps in dealing with hunger pangs, poor men’s biggest enemy.

Protein Powder:

Though eggs are a great source of protein, protein powder is the quickest protein available. Just add little water and all you have is 100 percent protein to consume.

Protein shakes are the healthiest shakes to have in the mornings. Most minimalists just take protein shakes instead of any breakfasts in the mornings.

Curd:

Indian curd is a great source of pre- probiotics, the good bacterias in the stomach. Also, it’s loaded with protein and vitamins for healthy bones. Curd should be taken raw, but by adding little sugar in it can make it a delightful treat to oneself.

Being poor or a minimalist doesn’t mean one has to compromise on food, but it is all about enjoying healthy food and a great lifestyle.

Coffee:

Last but not least- Coffee. Coffee and only coffee is the most luxurious beverage for poor men and minimalists. It’s easy to make and gives the greatest boost one would need in a day.

Seven Basic Fashion Accessories For Every Poor Man and Minimalist

You can be a poor man, you can be a minimalist, and you can be a fashion icon AF at the same time.
You don’t really need to have multiple pairs of shoes and pants to mark your presence in the fashion department.
We all know the rich guy with his flamboyant appearance but fails to impress us. If we ever need any fashion inspiration, he would be the last guy.
Consider yourself lucky to be a minimalist or the one who sees ramp models as funny people. Ramp models are indeed funny guys. They don’t inspire masses in the fashion department. All they do is… I don’t really know what they do… They just appear funny to me.
Well, you can find ramp walkers and supermodels and their fashion funny and stupid; still, you can mark your presence in the fashion department.
Dress what you are, and what you feel about yourself. If you are a man, and feel like a man, and proud of your manhood, then dress like a man.

BOOTS:
God has given us all beautiful faces, this is why we try to make a difference at our feet. We were many things on our feet, but if you don’t wear big boots, you are a novice in fashion.


Sports shoes and sneakers are for guys with mixed-gender orientations, no offense, by the way. Boots are for those who identify themselves as men.
Black leather boots are just fine, but if they are tan or brown, they are impressive. Always wear boots with jeans and formal trousers.
Boots don’t just look manly, they are also made sturdy and last long: a perfect accessory for a poor man or a minimalist.

POLO T-SHIRTS:
Round or V-shaped t-shirts are for not-so-serious people. Polo or collar t-shirts are made for people who mean business.


Polo t-shirts are durable. They are sophisticated. They don’t carry stupid slogans printed on them.
From athletes to college students, from office goers to presidents, everyone who makes a difference wears polo t-shirts.

HALF SLEEVE SHIRT:
A body fitting half sleeve shirt makes a strong fashion statement. Wear it to show that you are stronger and more powerful in your office or the neighborhood.


You can wear it on any occasion. Choose a half sleeve shirt either black or white to keep its sober statement.

BROWN OR TAN LEATHER BELT:
Belts don’t just save our modesty, they help us show our strong presence in the fashion department.


Always keep a strong pure leather belt of a brown or tan color. Pure leather belts, because they last for years. Though belts come in various colors, a minimalist should choose between black, brown and tan. Tan leather belts are the best belts.

METAL ANALOG WRIST WATCH:
Please, never wear a plastic digital wristwatch, however costly and durable. Let the kids enjoyed and show off these plastic digital watches.


Men should go for an analog wristwatch- made of shiny steel, with a big dial. Let others know that you are made of iron and prefer steel.

FIVE POCKET JEANS:
Last but not least, go for a well-fitting traditional pair of blue jeans. Remember, five-pocket, traditional blue jeans. Do not give yourself many options while choosing jeans.


You don’t need red jeans or yellow jeans or even black jeans. You need only and only blue jeans.

THE SUNGLASSES:
You visit either an eyewear store or an online portal, you would find thousands of choices. You don’t need to bother about these many choices, because it’s a simple matter.


Always go for either round or pilot style sunglasses. Choose between black and brown color glasses, and don’t you ever bother about red, yellow or orange shades.

LifeStyle: Things That One Should be Eating As A Good Minimalist

You, sir, are not a good minimalist if you are not eating as a good minimalist eat. Remember, minimalists don’t need to eat less, but healthy and easily available.

There are criteria on what a minimalist should eat, and what he/she should avoid. Let’s keep things random and simple about things, I mean food, that we should not eat first-

Pizza: A minimalist most not eat pizza even on weekends. pizza is made of bad stuff, like refined flour, lots of artificial edible substances, preservatives, oil, etc. Pizzas require lots of time to be made, and they are made by hotel guys; not recommended for minimalists.

Burger: This thing is even worse than pizzas. This food is laden with lots of unhealthy substances that help you look like a burger over a period of time. A minimalist should not eat food that cannot be made or prepared or cooked by himself.

Biryani: This Indian subcontinent food is spreading around the globe now. It’s filling, it’s spicy, it’s tasty, and it’s full of carbs. Carb is an enemy of good health. More importantly, it takes lots of time and expertise to make it. The minimalists obviously don’t cook food that takes time and expertise to make.

Ice creams & Cakes: Tons of carbohydrates and artificial colors make ice creams and cakes seriously unhealthy thing to relish. No further explanation is required!

Bread and Bread Spread: Bread these days have become unhealthier. Bread manufacturers are adding more and more preservatives to make their products look fresh for a longer duration. The same thing goes with bread Spreads like peanut butter, Nutella, etc. Remember again- these things are filled with lots of preservatives, artificial colors, acidity regulator, and SUGAR (up to 70%).

Cold Drinks: Cold Drinks are sweet, tasty and chilled. But, they are pure sugar. They add so much sugar that one would throw up if the acidity regulator and suppressants are not used in them.

Well, if I conclude in a line: stay away from carbohydrates, other chemical stuff such as acidity regulator, thickener, preservatives, artificial colors, and sweeteners. Our body needs a lesser amount of carbohydrates and no chemicals.

Things That We Minimalists Should Eat-

More and More Meat: Meat is the greatest source of natural protein. Our ancestors have survived only on meat for millions of years. The vegetable was not our (Homo Sapiens) primary or natural food. It took hundreds of years to select a plant as safe food. Most of the plants were and are poisonous. Our ancestors had a difficult time selecting between poisonous and nonpoisonous plants, but they had no fear of meat. The could kill any living thing and eat it without fearing about poison. So as a Minimalist, you must shift to meat. Most of your meals should include only meat.

I’m not against eating vegetables and fruits, yes they are healthy, full of nutritions, source of good carbs, and most importantly fiber for our healthy internal organs. But, when I talk about eating non-veg, I mean only vegetables and fruits. I’m strictly against rice, wheat, and corn. When our ancestors quit Hunter gathering and shifted to farming, they began falling sick, because they were growing rice, wheat, and corn.

More and More Vegetables: Vegetables that are available now are generally safe to eat, thanks to early Homo Sapiens. Poisonous vegetables have been weeded out long ago by our ancestors. They are not just a great source or vitamins and minerals, but they are the only source of fiber. Fibers make us go to the toilet every morning. Simply put: eat more and more vegetables, they are essentials for good health. But stay away from the grains and vegetables that are grown by harmful fertilizers.

Eat Eggs: Eggs are perhaps the best friend of the Minimalists. They are easy to cook and full of nutrition. Sometimes they may turn boring, but minimalism also may turn boring- this is how we like it.

Coffee, obviously: the minimalists drink no other drinks but coffee. More and more of it. Coffee doesn’t only boost the energy level, but also provides the minimal need for carbohydrates in the form of sugar. Most importantly, it suppresses unwanted hunger pangs, the enemy of the minimalists.
Long Live Minimalism!!

HR Discussion: How Do You Control ‘Offer Declines’ As a Recruiter?

Hi,

I’ve been working as a recruiter for many years with a recruitment firm. Recently I went for an interview where I had applied for a Sr. recruiter positon. There, the interviewer asked me: how do you control your offer declines as a recruiter? Though I’ve been into this field for many years, I fumbled while answering, I was almost clueless about the answer. What do you think, what could be the right answer to this question?

Offer declines can become very discouraging and frustrating for any recruiter, whether the recruiter is highly skilled or just stepped into the field. Candidates with offers have their own mind, and they are free to decide whatever is best for them. They are the customers, and they are never wrong.

All we can do as a recruiter to decrease the number of declines is control. We, whatever we do, cannot bring the offer declines numbers to zero. But, we can bring it to 2 or 3 out of ten.

We have to be careful at the sourcing and screening stage. This is the stage where we can do our best as a skilled recruiter to bring down to offer declines. We, as an experienced recruiter, must use our intuition, most importantly our experience and skills.

Before calling a candidate or sending a mail to the candidate, ask yourself: will this guy join my company and the brand? How much this guy will expect from my company based on his current CTC? Will office distance cause any issue? Why is he changing his job after all? How does he respond to my email & calls, actively or just ignores my emails or calls? Is his involvement in the process satisfactory? You can add more such questions based on the situation to understand the candidate’s position.

Based on these data available, just like AI or Machine Learning technologies, you can logically predict if this candidate is going to accept the offer or decline it.

Remember, you cannot bring the offer declines to zero, but you can surely decrease the numbers significantly.

No, Jawa Motorcycles Cannot Kill Royal Enfield

‘Time will tell’, they said. Now the time has told: no, Jawa motorcycles cannot kill Royal Enfield motorcycles.

The sales statistics, as well as the motorcycle enthusiasts, have now substantiated the fact that Royal Enfield cannot be destroyed in the Indian market so easily.

In this topic, I’m not going to touch the boring sales statistics, records, specifications, etc, of the motorcycles. Internet is full of such robotic information. I am going to talk about what motorcycle enthusiasts say and what the Indian ‘mango’ people feel.

Not Happy with Royal Enfield!

I, myself, was angry with Royal Enfield and the way it has bewitched the Indian motorcyclists. I’ve written many articles on how Royal Enfield has ‘befooled’ we Indians so emotionally. I wanted Royal Enfield to be punished for its discrimination with Indian customers. I wished for the sales decline of the Royal Enfield bikes, I am being frank here.

Jawa Motorcycle As Hope!

When Mahendras confirmed the news that Jawa is being resurrected by them, I said: Royal Enfield, you are dead!

Almost everything was perfect with Jawa Motorcycles, the visual appeal, the specifications, the new modern technologies, the history & legacy emotions, etc. Everything was almost perfect, but not perfect.

When Jawa motorcycles added ABS and basics like the fuel gauge, disk brake, wide rear tires, etc., which Royal Enfield shamelessly kept away from us Indians, we all were excited. But at one particular stage, I said no, Jawa Motorcycles perhaps may not destroy Royal Enfield.

The Money Matters!

Jawa Motorcycles may not even make a dent in Royal Enfield’s empire. I’m talking about the price. The price does matter. You can fool our sensitive Indian customers with your brand name and royalty only to a point. We Indians appreciate Apple’s iPhones, but buy Xiomi’s Redmi.

Jawa Motorcycles need to understand that Royal Enfield can also bring ABS, tubeless & wide tires, none-leaky engines, and none vibrating bodies, by increasing the price, which is being done now. But hiked prices, however logical, keep customers away.

Sales & Marketing Gyana!

And, if the customers are away, you cannot expand your market. If the market is not widespread, you cannot propagate your trust, durability, and value. Without trust durability and value, you cannot emerge as a ‘Brand’.

Budget-friendly products get emotionally attached to the customers. If you keep your products too pricy, customers will psychologically try to justify and appreciate the alternatives available to them.

The Future of Jawa Motorcycles!

The future of Jawa motorcycles is not very positive. I guess it will go Mahendra Mojo way. It is not going to sell many motorcycles. The current automotive industry is performing poorly in India. Auto Sales has declined up to 30 percent due to various government policies, this is what the industry experts say.

This year, 2019, almost all Vehicle-making industries have shown declining sales figure. If this trend in the industry remains, then tough days are ahead for Jawa motorcycles. We also know what happened to UM Motorcycle, which has come to the Indian market as a challenger for Royal Enfield.

A little Man’s Advice to Royal Enfield

It is an opportunity for Royal Enfield to correct its wrongs done to its Indian customer. Or, the least Royal Enfield can do is bring tubeless tires and widen the skinny rear tire in Bullet 350s.

Don’t let another Nokia happen to you. Change yourself with time, and most importantly listen to your customers who appreciate, you despite your discriminatory attitude towards Indian buyers.
