5 Eating Tips That Will Keep You Fit and Healthy Over the Holidays

By 0

I want to enjoy the holidays, but still maintain a balanced state of mind and a healthy diet. How can I do this, when despite its magic and beautiful spirit, Christmas is actually the time of overindulgence? Family dinners, office parties, a cocktail with friends, a hot chocolate with refined sugar, airplane food, plain flour baked goodies – they all require a lot of your energy and nutrients. Extra socializing, sipping one more drink, or having one more chocolate chip cookie makes us hectic and unbalances our immune system. It’s no wonder that we find ourselves with colds or headaches during the holidays. For keeping your body happy and balancing your energy you need a bit of …

5 Things I’ve Learned From Dealing With My Breast Problems

By 25

I see my body as a special mechanism that works permanently to keep me healthy. Over the years, I learned to listen to all its signals to know right away when something is going wrong. While inadequate nourishment, environmental estrogens, and low self-esteem are the main problems that hijack its activity, women’s bodies have their own special ways of transmitting the signals. There is a high incidence of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and breast cysts because …

Choosing healthy for Easter might seem like a mission impossible, but there’s always a lot of inspiration from bloggers and magazines to keep you on the right track. I like to save my favorite recipes in bookmarks and browse them when Easter is approaching to get inspired and create something new or even making some of these healthy dishes. This year I also created an Easter Pinterest board to keep everything in one place. Farmers’ market is the best place to shop now, because all the spring greens – nettles, wild garlic, spinach, asparagus, parsley, watercress – are in season. Remember that holidays aren’t about stressing out with complicated dishes, but spending time with family and friends, chilling and …

3 Restoring Spring Juices

The sad news about Jess’s passing left me perplexed and turned my beliefs upside down. She was one of the people I really admired and from which I learned a lot. When I first became interested in a natural way of living, I found so much inspiration on her site, “The Wellness Warrior”. Moments like these leave you confused, and so many questions start bouncing into your head trying to …

7 Magnesium Rich Foods That Keep Supplements Away

By 7

While many people’s concerns about their diet relate to a proper intake of calcium and protein, one of the key regulators of our bodies’ chemistry – magnesium – is the most often forgotten. The vegetarian diet tends to be high in calcium (from dairy, especially cheese) and low in magnesium (from whole grains, nuts, and legumes), although a varied diet assures that both magnesium and calcium are consumed in equal ratios.

Magnesium is the king of the minerals in our body, being necessary for hundreds of its chemical reactions. It is involved in almost every …

3 Day Detox and Restore Plan

By 37

I tried so many versions of “magical” detox diets and struggled a lot until I understood exactly how it works. The concept is really basic – unless you suffer from chronic illness, a detox should be easy to do, adapted to the season and to your own lifestyle. For me, it would be impossible to keep a juice-only detox during winter when my body craves warm food. Putting lots of pressure on your body and feeling guilty about all the little things that you just can’t handle will not lead you to a balanced state of body and mind. Moreover, you will feel stressed, your body will react, and…
