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 had insomnia and hate it just as much as I do. I have been having 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 re-living events or imagining every possible outcome to whatever is causing this anxiety. Sometimes meditation, sports or cooking just dosen’t calm my nerves and it happens.
I’m not going to tell you that I have the solution for insomnia, usually it ends in me finally falling asleep after a few days of exhaustion, but one can…
Having a healthy lifestyle for me is not just sticking to diets, non-fattening foods and doing physical activity, it’s so much more.
The way I’ve decided to live this past year (and hopefully for many years to come) is by actually listening to my body before undergoing anything. Most times that means eliminating junk out of my diet, but sometimes that also means adapting my diet according to how my health and body is at a specific moment, season or according to my current goals.
I’d also say it’s by combining my emotional state with my physical one, making them one. You might have heard of the expression “You are what you eat”, well it’s precisely how I feel about everything I put on or in my body lately. You may ask yourself why I am going this far, or maybe you…
