Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is currently riding the limelight for her recent post in support of Nepo Babies after the topic has been creating havoc in Hollywood. The entire conversation was sparked after a recent cover story in New York Magazine that called out these celebrity kids that the world seems to be obsessed with. Some of the popular names on the list included Dakota Johnson and Lily-Rose Depp.
Jamie Lee Curtis’s Post
Jamie Lee Curtis was once known as the product of nepotism, given that she is the daughter of actors Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis. And for a long time that became her identity, which was very frustrating for her sometimes. The Halloween actress wrote in the post responding to the infamous article that the only objective behind the discussion regarding nepo kids is to make people feel bad, inferior, and wounded. She said she has successfully navigated 44 years of her life, and she is grateful for the benefits that she may have received due to her parents’ names. She added that she has never pretended that there are no benefits and never will. But it’s interesting for her to know how people instantly assume and sneer that someone connected to someone else who is well-known in their profession for their artistic endeavors must somehow be completely untalented.
An Ongoing Debate
She also said that she has always been a person of integrity who believes in the importance of professionalism and considers her work to be art. She believes she is not alone; there are a lot of people who have similar opinions and are committed to their work.
When your regular morning pick-me-up comes with jam-packed health benefits, nothing sets your day better. If you are bored by your regular cappuccino, or already over the craze of Dalgona, here are few ‘caffeinated’ trendy tips to spike your morning cuppa with something healthy and satisfying.
Much like Dalgona, this recent coffee trend is made viral by social media platforms, particularly TikTok. Containing a mix of regular coffee and protein powder, this protein-infused satiating brew is ideal for pre and post-workout consumption. A healthy intake of proffee is especially beneficial for menopausal women, as their body needs more protein to help muscles heal and repair at this stage. To make your own proffee, just mix a scoop of protein powder of your choice or suggested by your dietitian, with one or two shots of espresso, and blend everything together with 200ml of water. Don’t forget to check the sugar content level of your protein powder before adding any sugar or syrup to your proffee.
Matcha is originally a variety of green tea but prepared differently in powdered form packed with health benefits. Replacing the espresso in your regular latte with matcha powder will make your morning brew more soothing, thanks to a special compound named ‘L-Theanine’. This compound slows the rate of releasing caffeine, calming your mind. With a high number of antioxidants, Matcha provides several anti-cancer and heart-friendly properties. It also helps to burn more calories than regular exercise.
Contrary to common beliefs, bulletproof coffee comes with weight-loss properties. Dave Asprey, the creator of The Bulletproof Diet, made this variety of coffee famous in 2014, combining coffee, unsalted butter, and a medium-chain triglyceride or MCT oil together into his concoction. Though it is essentially coffee mixed with fat, surprisingly the MCT is the key factor making this high-calorie brew fit to be slim! Instead of being stored in the body, the fat here is absorbed quickly and used for generating energy. Brew a cup of coffee and blend it with 2tbsp unsalted butter and 10ml MCT oil, and enjoy the creamy guilt-free delight.
