I'm sure you've heard of a few: maca, matcha, ashwaghanda, spirulina, dandelion root....to name a few. But what the heck are all of these and do you actually need to be eating them?
The answer is no, not necessarily! These potions and powders are a nutritionist hackers dream, but totally not necessary for a healthy life.
Maintaining a healthy regular diet is way more important, however if you are a smoothie junkie like me, you may want to try one or two of these out....they have some pretty cool benefits!
If you're thinking about cutting back on the sugar this year, here are three reasons why you should:
When sugar is a regular part of your diet, it makes it impossible for your body to break down fat! In fact, you're likely turning all of that sugar into fat.
Sugar accelerates aging, causing you to look older faster.
When you consume sugar, your blood sugar spikes and then plummets which leaves you feeling unnecessarily tired and cranky.
Celery is an AMAZING food with so many health benefits. Here are some ways I look to incorporate celery into my diet:
Celery juice mixed with aloe Vera juice. I had some seriously dry skin at the start of this season. I used this combo to help me rehydrate and acclimate to the weather change!
Make your own homemade celery juice! This is one of my favorite ways to get my daily nutrients. All you need is organic celery and a juicer! I find it way more cost-efficient than hitting the juice shop. Sometimes I like to add extras like lemon and ginger. Ginger is especially great for cold and flu season
REAL olive oil means it is pure, not watered with other oils, and it has some real health benefits!
1. Pure olive oil is loaded with antioxidants that not only protects you from aging but can reduce the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases.
2. Although olive oil is a fat (the highest in calories of the macronutrients), it is not associated with weight gain. When you are using quality olive oil the nutrients nourish your body instead of helping it hold onto weight.
3. Real olive oil is incredible for your skin!! All the nutrients and antioxidants help to protect your skin from the aging process and keep you looking good.
