I recently went to Seattle and learned that it was the “coffee city” in the US. Being European and having travelled many times to Italy, I had a hard time believing that there was better coffee than in Italy. Well I stand my ground on that one 😉 … but I did enjoy the coffee scene in Seattle and learned a lot about brewing methods.
It turns out Seattle is the city with the most coffee enthusiasts in the US, and this is mainly due to the fact that they are one of the world’s largest coffee roasting & coffee supply chain management cities.
A coffee culture has established itself throughout the years because of this, leading to the creation of the very first Starbucks shop in the world in 1971 as well as many independently owned coffee shops. It is rare…
Sharing my miracle drink with you today peeps. A ginger, tumeric and cinnamon detox infusion. It’s benefits ? Well it’s all about the anti-inflammatory properties in each of these ingredients. Whether it’s for digestion issues, bloating or stomach aches – for whatever reason that may be (medications, bacteria, intolerances, over-eating, over-drinking..), I call this a detox drink because it really does the job.
Let me explain why with a few fun facts about the ingredients used:
○ Contains Gingerol, a powerful anti-inflammatory & antioxidant
○ Reduces nausea caused by chemotherapy or medications, or morning sickness for pregnant women
○ Treats chronic indigestion (dyspepsia) because it speeds up the emptying of the stomach
○ Can reduce menstrual pain

Today I’d like to share this Iced chocolate & almond milk recipe – or just a simple beverage idea for you to contemplate on. I’d like to take advantage of this article to talk a little bit about how stress factors can lead to appetite loss and share how I have learned to control it seeing as I have had this problem before.
A lot of us experience weight gain issues and battle through dietary restrictions and frustrations, but the problem can also be reversed and just as complicated to deal with. Some may say that losing your appetite for a few days is a blessing in disguise because it leads to weight loss and helps you maintain a fit bod’, but…
I love to explore new culinary theories, healthy “diets” or just new ways of healing my body through nutrition. I am extremely in tune with what my body needs due to my constant struggle with keeping it healthy on an day to day basis. I am also completely aware that a lot of these trends or healthy lifestyles aren’t necessarily scientifically proven nor that they can benefit everyone. Every body is unique and everyone reacts differently to what they put in their bodies due to additional & individual factors. Let’s also not forget the psychological factor which I am convinced is essential for having a healthy mind and body. So I’ll say this again, you do you 🙂 .
I’ve of course known about Raw foodism in Paleo and Vegan diets, or just straight forward Raw diets for a while now and I…
I’m sure all of you have experienced Insomnia and hate it just as much as I do. I have been going through insomnia episodes for the past week for the first time in a while. My trigger is anxiety, whether it is for a upcoming event or past events that I can’t get out of my head, or because my job is stressing me out… and that little voice then slowly takes over my mind just before bed to the point where I cannot sleep because I’m too busy reliving events or imagining every possible outcome to whatever is causing this anxiety. I know, it’s tiring. 🙂 Sometimes meditation, physical activity or cooking (which is a soothing activity for me) just dosen’t suffice and it happens.
I won’t lie, I’m not going to tell you that I have the antidote for Insomnia, usually…
