Since I can remember, I’ve always been a creative person. There was always something new to do in my life, whether it was drawing, painting, collaborating with my sister to put on an art show in front of a large audience, or writing new songs and stories.

The fact that my sister and I were raised in a household where our parents were very conscious of limiting our screen time or who encouraged but instead valued our creative endeavours, praising with us efforts and yet still eating our bakery once we accidentally substituted ground coffee for cocoa in our recipes, made it only natural for us to grow up with a strong foundation in the arts.

In spite of my lack of a “traditionally creative” career, I always have believed that you should incorporate creative thinking into your life regardless of what you do for a living. Writing, cooking, photographing, DIY projects around the house, graphic and interior design, and expressing myself during my style are all forms of creative expression for me. Even if it’s just for the sake of the experience itself.

Why? Because it helps me stay grounded and then in touch with this myself. It makes me feel like I’m having fun again, and that makes me happy and content. Creating and disseminating my work is one of my favourite pastimes. Making a meal for pals, taking pictures and going to post them on Instagram, or perhaps even writing here, allows me to express my feelings in a way that is sometimes difficult to do so in other ways.

Brene Brown, in a stunning statement, said,

Its way I communicate my soul the with world is through my creative endeavours.

No matter how much research is done to prove the benefits of creativity, almost all of us have felt gratified by an act of creativity, even if it was as simple as coming up with a way to carry home all of the groceries on one trip.

You should be creative for the following reasons:

Improve your ability to think creatively and solve problems.

Making new and interesting use of the box is a necessary step in developing our creative thinking skills.

You can save a lot of money by doing this.

My fondness for improvising in the kitchen the with ingredients I already have stems from my financial constraints as a university student, which prevent me from going out and spending a lot of money on a single meal.

Put yourself in a trance.

There is a term for this state of complete immersion in an experience: flow. I’m sure you understand what I mean. A state of mind in which the passage of time is obscured by the pleasures of the present. Flow is a state of being where one is engaged in activities for the sheer joy of it, with no thought of the end result in mind. In addition to enhancing our well-being and productivity, while in a middle of the action reduces stress and increases our ability to focus on the task at hand.

Take a break from your worries.

In some ways, being creative is like meditative contemplation. Painting is among my favourite ways to cultivate mindfulness. It’s also liberating and fun to be creative without any expectations or pressure.

Self-awareness and self-expression can be enhanced.

By connecting us with the things we find pleasurable, engaging in creative activities helps us better understand who we are. In order to better understand our practises, impulses and desires, we need to create more. It is important to take the time and effort to develop in out own ideas so that we can respective user ourselves towards the world in ways that is true to who we really are.

Today, I challenge you to unleash your inner artist! There is no end to the possibilities.

Have no idea where to begin? I love Pinterest because it’s a great source of ideas. Use your interests to find a wide variety of creative endeavours. Large Magic: Creative Life Without Fear” by Elizabeth Gilbert is also a good read. Fears that I had never realised were holding me away from pursuing my creative passions were revealed to me thanks to this book. In addition, it served as a timely reminder that the only limitations and failures we face in our creative endeavours are those we impose on ourselves.

You don’t have to be a perfectionist or a perfectionist to have fun with your creative endeavours! Take pleasure in the journey. Do whatever it is you’re doing with all of your heart; there’s no wrong or right way to do it!

There are twelve baby steps you can take to achieve optimal health.

One person’s method of getting things done may not be the same as another’s.

When it comes to making life changes, some people (like me) prefer to jump in feet first, make immediate adjustments, and then quit everything.

Others prefer to take their time and go at a more leisurely pace. Before fully submerging themselves, they like to take a few tentative steps into the water.

Everyone has their own unique way of doing things.

If you’d rather read something that takes their time, then this post would be for you.

It will only take you 12 weeks to reach superhuman status if you follow through with just one of these suggestions per week.

This would take a year and if you do one a month, but each step has the potential to have a significant impact, so you should begin to see results fairly quickly.

1. Limit Consumption of Sweetened Drinks

Removing sugar-sweetened beverages from ones diet is probably the most effective strategy to enhance your diet and reduce your risk of obesity and disease.

Fruit juices, like sodas, contain the same number of sugar.

You should also get rid of the diet sodas, since scientific studies have found no benefit to replacing sugary sodas with artificially sweetened beverages.

Don’t drink calories, and don’t drink “fake calories” either, to keep things simple.

2. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

First thing in the morning, eat a nutritious meal.

A well-balanced meal of protein, fat, and veggies will keep you full for hours and set a tone for the rest of the day.

Possibly some fruit or starches (if you’re not on a low-carb diet already) along with the eggs and vegetables.

For breakfast, blueberry and blackberry juice is an excellent choice. Fat-burning green smoothies and wheatgrass juice are ideal. Here, a good juicer but rather blender may be required.

Fruits like blueberries and blackberries, as well as greens like wheatgrass, can be used, but they are more difficult to come by and more expensive.

Breakfast for me is the same every day. An organic spice mix, coconut oil, and omega-3 enriched eggs fried in coconut oil.

3. Start a regular walking regimen.

Walking is an underappreciated form of physical activity.

Despite the fact that it won’t cause you to break out in a sweat or run out of breath, the benefits can be substantial. Benefits both physical and mental.

Walking a few times a week can have a dramatic effect on the health of someone who doesn’t exercise at all.

4. Remove All Sources of Gluten from Your Diet

Wheat and other gluten grains are among the most harmful aspects of the modern diet.

It’s possible that gluten grains can cause exhaustion and other health issues. Addiction and overeating have been linked to them, and more research is needed to confirm these claims.

It’s safe to say that sugar as well as gluten are the two worst things you can put in your body. Removing these two items from your diet can have a significant effect on health and weight.

Replacing them with processed “gluten-free” replacement foods, on the other hand, is just as harmful as the originals.

5. As a final step, switch out your cooking oil for healthy fats.

Replace all of your seed as well as vegetable oils with healthy, healthy fats instead.

Omega-6 but also Omega-3 fats must be consumed in a specific ratio, and seed oils are primarily composed of Omega-6 fats. The vast majority of people consume far too many of these.

Coconut oil but also lard are excellent cooking fats because of their high saturated fat content.

As far as cooking goes, avoid using polyunsaturated fats at all costs because of their high concentration of double bonds.

6. Start Eating Meat or Fish Every Night for Dinner

It’s time to give up fast food and frozen dinners.

In their place, serve lean, home-cooked protein like chicken or fish.

The large percentage of your calories consumed should come from animal products like meat, fish, and eggs if you’re following a nutritious, whole-foods diet.

If you’re not currently on a low-carb diet, you may want to add some sweet potatoes or other starchy vegetables to your meal.

7. Begin Strength Training with Weights

Strength training is one of the best ways to improve your health and your body’s composition.

Weights are included in that. Get a membership to a gym and go there at least twice a week to lift weights. A decent bodyweight routine and some dumbbells as well as kettle bells can be substituted if workout is not an option.

This also goes for the ladies. With maybe a little portion of resistance training, you won’t be turning into Incredible Hulk any time soon.

8. For lunches and snacks, eat more healthfully.

Our meal plans are now complete, so now it’s time to rethink your lunches as well as snacks.

Prepare a healthy lunch at home, eat leftovers, or search for healthy fast food options. Telling the waiter or waitress that you have a severe sugar and gluten intolerance can be helpful.

9. Decide on an Exercise Program That Is Right for You and Stick to It

The best way to maintain a healthy weight and shape is through a regimen that incorporates both strength training and cardiovascular exercise.

Exercise is one of most important thing you can do to improve your health and longevity, but you don’t need to prepare like an athlete and devote your life to your workouts.

10. Get rid of the junk food in your pantry and stock up on healthy alternatives.

In the meantime, it’s time to clean out the pantry.

Grains, inorganic flavoring, flours, cereals, sugars, crackers, and so on… Everything has to go.

You’ll be less likely to indulge if you don’t keep any of these items around the house.

11. Make Sure You Get Enough Sleep, and Learn to Manage Your Stress Levels.

To maintain good health, it’s critical that you get enough sleep. Don’t drink caffeine after 2pm, keep a regular sleep schedule, and ensure that you sleep through complete darkness.

Stress, on the other hand, can have a devastating effect on your health and even cause you to gain weight. Stress management techniques such as meditation or life simplification can help you manage your stress.

12. Avoid Junk Food at All Costs

Eating healthy is the only way to achieve complete health.

Get rid of all the processed foods in your diet. If you must, limit yourself to one “cheat meal” per week if you’re confident you can handle it.

You’ll live longer, look better, and have the energy of a superhuman if you follow the advice in this article to the letter. Guaranteed.

The Rowing machine is exactly as its name suggests, a machine that imitates the workout provided while rowing a boat in water. The Rowing machine has become rather popular in today’s fitness regimes because it is simple enough to understand but still a hard and very efficient exercise. But to better understand the workout it is important to know about the different stages of the workout and the different rowing machine muscles involved in each of those stages.

1)The Catch

The Catch is the starting position of the workout. The rower keeps his/her knee bent, shoulders and back relaxed while keeping the arms outstretched over the knee. In this position you triceps are stretched along with a group of shoulder muscles, called anterior deltoids and chest muscles. Although the rowing muscles do not face much resistance in this position, the stretching is still beneficial. It is important to make sure that your shoulders are not hunched and that your back is straight.

2) The Drive

While rowing, the Drive is the move that works to propel your boat forward. Which means it usually needs the most exertion. You push down with your legs straightening your knees while pulling the handle of the machine towards your sternum. Your quads, hamstrings and glutes all come into play during this push. The pulling of the handles relies on your biceps mainly but also helps engage your core and upper back muscles. It is important to do this stage slowly emphasizing the upper body muscles and your legs rather than your lower back. Pulling at the handle too fast causes the pressure to be applied on the lower back or abdominal region and may cause back pains.

3) The Finish

This stage is basically the conclusion of the Drive and is called the Finish.In this position the arms are in a state of tension, holding the handle to the sternum while the legs are outstretched and the torso leans slightly to the back. At this stage the rowing muscle are contracting. The biceps and back muscles help keep the torso firm and rotates the upper arms internally. Make sure that you do not just lean back and let your body weight take over. Keep your back firm and your muscles tensed to get the full benefit of the position.

4) The Recovery

The Recovery is the final stage which returns the rower to the initial position. The arms are brought down to the hips and then stretched out. The knees bent and the user returns to the Catch position. The hamstrings contract and the abdominal muscles flex as you bring your torso forward.

On the upper body, the triceps are engaged when stretching out the arm.

When recovering it is important to bring the handle down to the hips from the sternum before stretching our arms forward. This is done to emulate the same motion in a real boat where the hand come down to the hip in order to lift the oars out of the water.

We hear and read the words “Listen to your body” frequently in social media and health magazines, but we don’t understand what it exactly means. Something about healthy living, or yoga perhaps? Or is there more to it?

How often do you find yourself doing something you really don’t feel like doing? Like a workout at the gym, a hot sweaty session in a dark spin-class room or maybe early, early morning runs?

Or perhaps you find yourself eating foods you don’t really enjoy because you “should” – like drinking a protein smoothie that tastes like chalk or eating a salad out to dinner with friends instead of the burger you really, really want.

The similarity between all of these situations is listening to your body – are you listening or are you ignoring what your body is trying to tell you? Most of us ignore our body’s signals because we let our minds and thoughts get in the way. In today’s over social-media”lized” age, we have grown accustomed to comparing ourselves to other’s ‘perfect’ plates, workouts and lives and trying to emulate the same. When we fall short, we feel guilty and are harsh with ourselves, hating our bodies and selves. We fall sick, experience chronic pain, headaches, poor digestion, irritable bowel syndrome, have panic attacks, all because we ignore the warning signs and messages our bodies try to send us.

What if we stopped, paused and started listening to our bodies instead? You may be surprised to find that you feel more alive, healthy and energized than thought possible. This isn’t an unachievable feat: human beings are meant to live with optimal health and freedom. But somewhere along the way, we’ve learned to disregard our body’s messages in favor of societal pressures.

Here are 5 key benefits that listening to your body will help you achieve:

1. Improved Health

Listening to your body’s signals of fatigue and pain amongst other signals can decrease your chances of getting sick. All too often we ignore these signals, we work through chills, stomach upsets or general malaise and end up overworked and overtired. The next time you feel under the weather, heed these signals and aim to rest more and stress less. Listen to your body – how it feels, what it seems to be asking for – is it thirsty? Drink more water. Cold? Take a hot bath and snuggle up on the couch with blankets.

2. No More Crazy Diet / Food Obsession

Learning to listen to your body means that you actually learn when you are hungry and what you are hungry for. You ignore what you think you “should eat” and the latest diet fad and instead choose to hear when your body says it’s really hungry (perhaps stomach rumbles or a headache) and when you’re just bored or irritated. The obsession with food and dieting becomes obsolete as you create peace with food and use it to fuel and care for your body’s needs instead of your mind’s wants.

3. Better Fitness

How does your body feel when you work out or are getting ready to work out? Does it feel tired, achy, sore or energized and light? It’s great to push yourself to go to the gym when you don’t feel like it and overcome mental obstacles. Often you’ll find you have more energy than when you left. However, what about your body? Excessive fatigue and soreness may signal the need for a rest day, a walk instead of a run or a yoga class instead of boot camp. Listening to your body can also help you execute exercises properly by firing off the correct muscles. Target your triceps in push-ups and your glutes with squats versus relying too much on your shoulders and low-back.

4. Improved Self-Confidence And Trust

Listening to your body and shutting out all the exterior noises and societal pressures increases your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-trust. You learn to trust what you need to do for yourself – what foods feel right for your body and what workouts you truly need and enjoy. Self-trust increases your ability to be at peace and love with yourself leading to deep fulfillment.

5. Increased Joy

Bring more joy into your life by listening to your body. Ask it what it wants or needs when you are hungry or tired or angry or sad. Feel how it feels – is there a knot in your stomach? A headache when you think of work or a date? Do more of the things that make you feel light, happy and joyous whether that’s spending more time in nature, with friends or on hobbies.

Hey, come in close. I’ve got a secret to tell you.

  • Do you want rock hard nails and beautiful hair?
  • Do you want to increase the elasticity in your skin?
  • Do you want strong bones and joints?
  • Do you want a natural digestive aid?

Well, I’ve got something that will give you all that and more. All you have to do is eat more gelatin. That’s right, you read right – gelatin!

What is Gelatin?

Gelatin is a natural protein collagen that is derived from the bones, skin, joints, and collagen (fibrous protein) of animals. It is usually found in a flavorless granulated, powder form and is used in desserts and to thicken various liquids.

Gelatin is utilized in many industries; most commonly in food, medicine, and beauty products. It is used to stabilize, clarify, emulsify, and thicken foods and other products. Gelatin is found in a multitude of items, such as: yogurt, gummy bears, jelly, marshmallows, soups, sausages, lozenges, creams, pills, photographic film, sand paper, and playing cards (just to name a few!).

Besides being able to buy gelatin at the store, it is also found in rich, homemade bone broth which is prepared by taking the bones (from animals like beef and chicken) and placing them in a large stock pot with water and apple cider vinegar. You can find a full tutorial here on how to make homemade bone broth.

Gelatin Quality Matters

Keep in mind, the gelatin I am talking about doesn’t come in a small box with many different “flavors” to choose from. Here is an example on how conventionally made gelatin is made:

“Collagen doesn’t dissolve in water in its natural form, so it must be modified to make gelatin. Manufacturers grind the body parts and treat them with either a strong acid or a strong base to dissolve the collagen. Then the pre-treated material is boiled. Controls at every step of the process ensure purity and safety. The materials are washed and filtered repeatedly. During this process, the large collagen protein ends up being partially broken down; the resulting product is a gelatin solution. That solution is chilled into a jelly-like material, cut and dried in a special chamber. At this point, the dried gelatin — about 10 percent water — is ground. If it’s going to make Jell-O, it will be ground into a fine powder.” (source)

This is why I buy 100% grass-fed gelatin (like this), so I know it’s coming to me in its purest, nutrient dense, minimally processed form; since most commercial gelatin can come from a mystery concoction of discarded animal parts.  Buying a high-quality gelatin also ensures you are getting gelatin from healthy animals who haven’t been treated with artificial hormones and antibiotics.

Why Gelatin is Great for You

There are many reasons gelatin is an amazing superfood! Here are just a few reasons why I make sure it’s a staple in my everyday diet:

Gelatin can strengthen the bones and joints, treating such conditions of the musculoskeletal system as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis.

Gelatin can strengthen your nails and improve your hair quality (thicker, shinier hair? Yes, please!)

Gelatin can also speed up recover time after exercise and any sports-related injury. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and can protect the muscles from being broken down for energy.

Gelatin can help the body fight off infections, regulate the hormones progesterone and estrogen, regulate insulin levels, improve liver health, and help the immune system run optimally.

Gelatin promotes relaxation and a good night’s sleep.

Gelatin can help replenish the collagen in your body (especially as you age, which means less wrinkles, stiff joints, and cellulite!). The protein found in the human body is made up of about 1/3 collagen. Collagen is what gives the body elasticity in the skin and in the connective tissue.

Gelatin has been shown to benefit the treatment of many chronic aliments such as diabetes, anemia, cancer, and muscular dystrophy.

Gelatin can heal the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, help the body assimilate nutrients easily, and help with the digestion of meat proteins, beans, milk, and certain grains.

Gelatin supports a healthy metabolism and promotes a healthy thyroid by aiding in the balance of tryptophan, cysteine, methionine, and histidine – amino acids that can hinder proper thyroid function. It also combats the common stress hormones cortisol, serotonin, and adrenaline which can put strain on the metabolism.

How to Get More Gelatin in Your Diet

1. Drink It!

You can drink gelatin by mixing it into hot liquids such as tea or coffee, you can also add the powder to smoothies. Since it is flavorless, I bet you won’t even know it’s there.

2. Make Gelatin-Rich Desserts & Snacks

You can make homemade jello (like the recipe below) and jigglers, mousse, no-bake cheesecake, marshmallows, popsicles – to just name a few!

3. Consume More Homemade Bone Broth

Eat lots of soups, stews, and sauces made from your own homemade bone broth; you can even cook your grains in broth to pack a gelatin-rich punch or just drink a nice, warm cup with each meal.

4. Make Pancakes!

Such as in this amazing coconut flour pancake recipe!

Easy Homemade Grape Jello

1 quart of 100% organic grape juice, fresh pressed if possible

2 1/2 tablespoons of grass-fed gelatin

1. Take half of the grape juice and place it in a mug with the gelatin, allow to sit for one minute.

2. In the mean time, gently heat the other half of the grape juice on the stove until steam rises from the top. Turn off the heat and add the cold grape juice/gelatin mixture. Stir well until the gelatin is dissolved.

3. Place in a glass dish (I went with an 8×8 dish) and allow to chill completely in the fridge for two hours.

4. Cut into squares, desired shapes, or just scoop into bowls – enjoy the gelatin goodness!

It’s an understatement to say that people are well conscious of the implications of eating healthy foods. Due to the obvious micronutrients, minerals, as well as vitamins they contain, fruits and vegetables are among the most important foods we should eat.

While we often fail to snack the recommended amount of vegetables, juicing is a healthy alternative because it provides us with the necessary nutrients. Furthermore, juicing preserves the essential components of phythochemicals but also complete proteases of fruits and vegetables, unlike cooking, which really only breaks down as well as destroys the key elements.

The real question is: which juicer should you buy out of all the options available on the market? Juicer purchases are expensive, so the question may be difficult to answer because you’re concerned about making the right investment for your situation.

Juicers are purchased for a variety of reasons. An adequate juicer for squeezing fruits and vegetables is sufficient for the majority of people. Some people could use a better juicer if they want to adopt a raw food diet. To keep oxidation to a minimum, only a small percentage of people will actually use a high-quality juicer.

Centrifugal vs. Masticating Juicers

Juicer that masticates

For a good idea of how these blenders work, consider the word “masticate,” which means “to chew.” In most cases, the blades are powered by powerful motors that allow them to move slowly through the food.

Centrifugal juicers, which use fast-rotating blades, stand in opposition to masticating juicers. After being quickly transformed in and out of pulp and then into the drinkable juice, your fruit or vegetable bits will be ready for you to enjoy. In fact, centrifugal juicers are by far the most common type of juicer used at home. There are numerous reasons why they’re so popular, citing the fact that people work quickly, i.e., turn vegetables and fruit in to other juice in such a matter of moments.

People all over the world love high-speed centrifugal juicers because they are inexpensive. Electric blenders can be found for as little as $20 or $30, which is a great price for a good blender. With all that in mind, you may be wondering that not everybody is taking advantage of them. Masticating juicers, on the other hand, are preferred by some consumers for health reasons.

Juicer with a centrifuge

Many health-conscious people prefer masticating juicers, despite their higher price tag compared to centrifugal juicers. This is due to the fact that these juicers keep all of the nutrients intact. To avoid oxidation, they spin a blade at a slow speed, which prevents the juice from oxidising.

Masticating juicers have the additional benefit of being able to make beverages out of foods like wheatgrass. Due to its high nutritional value, this type of beer has grown in popularity in the last few years. Wheatgrass juice has all the protein your brain need to function properly. Wheatgrass juice is a superfood. A centrifugal juicer is out of the question if you want to make this type of juice.

The word “centrifugal” tells us why that’s the case. The force of gravity is something you may have learned about in school. This force is, by definition, directed ahead from the blade’s centre of rotation.

This means that unless the food is chopped first, the force might very well push it to the bottom of the bowl. If you try to juice wheatgrass, you’ll notice that it’s stuck to the bottom of the plate because the blade can only chop food that’s liquid enough.

However, one disadvantage of investing in a masticating mixer is the hefty price tag. Unless you end up drinking wheatgrass juice every single day, a masticating juicer may not be the most cost-effective option for you. Fortunately, there’s a middle ground to fall back on. Adjustable speed juicers can be found, as well as juicers with plenty of power. Wheatgrass juice can be made using a low-speed setting, and fruit juice can be made using the highest speed setting on this type of juicer.

All I need is a juicer that can easily and quickly juice both fruits and vegetables.

The centrifugal juicer is the most commonly used juicer in the average home. This juicer is preferred by most people because it is the cheapest among its competitors and because it is easier and quicker to use. Centrifugal force pushes the pulp towards the strainer screen, where it is spun at a high rpm (RPM) to create a pulp. Centrifugal juicers have the advantage of being able to juice quickly, but they also have some drawbacks.

Grassy and leafy foods like wheatgrass, parsley, spinach, or other herbs are not suitable for centrifugal juicers. Furthermore, because your juice has a shorter shelf life than other types of juice made by high-end juicers, you should drink it right away after you’ve finished juicing thier fruits or vegetables. This occurs because the juice is aerated to the point where a large volume of oxygen is dissolved, resulting in rapid spoilage. Brand, model, as well as additional product features all affect the price of a centrifugal juicer.

Breville BJE200XL Foldable Juice Fountain, for example, is a well-known brand with a solid reputation for long-term use. The wider feed chute on this heavy-duty juicer is intended to speed up the cutting process. With stainless steel emery cloth filters and a central knife blade assembly, this juicer is extremely compact and efficient at juicing.

At a reasonable price, Joerid Juicer Compressors Juicer is one of the best juicers in the centrifugal category. This juicer is simple to put together, operate, and clean up is a breeze with the included brush. This is a good choice if you’re looking for a basic juicer.

When it comes to juicing citrus fruits and dense produce, the Mueller Austria Extreme Juicer is the best option. Hard vegetables and fruit can be juiced with ease thanks to the 1,100 watt motor. Consider purchasing this affordable and easy-to-use juicer for regular use. It’s one of the most cost-effective centrifugal juicers on the market.

In addition to making my own vegetables juice, I’d prefer a high-quality wheatgrass juice as well.

Some people have made it their life’s mission to switch to a vegetarian diet. Centrifugal juicers are ineffective at extracting some green leafy vegetables, so you may need to look for a specialised green leafy vegetable juicer. As a result, there are a number of people who are specifically looking for a wheatgrass juicer. Because vegetables have less juice than fruits and are more difficult to extract, there are models specifically designed to meet these needs. Juicers that are good for juicing fruit will be less effective because once juicing vegetables. An efficient juicer for soft produce and low RPM is needed in order to get the best results from your vegetables.

The single auger juicer and the dual stage single shaft juicer are vegetable-specific models. As its chlorophyll content and ability to aid in detoxification led to wheatgrass becoming the most popular drink, one auger was branded for this purpose. However, the only difference between a dual stage juicer and a single auger juicer is that the crushed vegetables go through a finer holed screen to filter out some more juice after the first stage of crushing, while the juice from the single auger goes through the same process.

What is the mechanism of a single auger juicer?

Wheatgrass juice made with a single auger mixer is the best in terms of taste and quality. Wheatgrass juice made with a single auger juicer has improved dramatically since then. This juicer needs to run at such a lower Speeds (80-120 rotations per minute) in order to keep the health benefits of the juice intact. Augers pull wheatgrass through stainless-steel strainers, which separates the juice from the pulp by mashing it into paste.

What about the single auger juicer with a dual-stage operation?

Compared to the juicer above, this one has a finer screen to extract more juice from vegetables, making it a little more powerful. Expect to see more juices coming out of it as a result. If you would like to juice any kind of fruit or vegetable, but dual phase single shaft juicer is up to the task. In a low-speed juicer, your produce is gently squeezed to its maximum juice yield with no concern for its long-term viability.

When it comes to raw food enthusiasts, single auger with dual phase . in this phase single shaft juicers are just a perfect fit. They are designed to preserve the essential nutrients but also live enzymes in plant-based foods that have not been cooked. This group is comprised of individuals who are willing to put up with the grassy taste of green juice in order to achieve and sustain a healthy body system, increase their energy and mental capacity, and have a better chance of living a happy and prosperous life.

Taking care of one’s health is a personal matter. Improper nutrition can lead to a host of health problems and even death. Because we eat so much junk food on a daily basis, our bodies aren’t getting the proper nutrition they need. Increasing numbers of people are falling short of the optimal nutrition needed to maintain a strong and healthy body. Although technology has brought us closer to our goal of a longer and healthier life, we still have a long way to go. The juicer is more than just a decorative piece in your kitchen. Juicing is just another way to get the nutrients researchers need from veggies and fruits in a single glass of green juice. It’s a worthwhile investment and an important necessity.

With dry skin, what are the best moisturisers to use?

Dry, cracked skin is a common problem. You might very well think that all moisturisers are the same because they’re just creams you apply to your face and put it hydrated, but this isn’t the case. No, not at all!

You can find a wide range of moisturising products on the market, all of which have different advantages. Which one is the best, and how do you pick it? Find out what works best for you by following the advice in this section!

Look At The Color Of Your Face

Identifying your skin type is the first step in finding the best moisturiser for you. Sensitive and normal-sensitive dry skin can both be treated with the same products, but the latter requires a different formulation.

Whether it’s your T-zone or around your cheekbones, does your face appear dull and tight despite being oily? It’s possible that you have a dehydration problem, which necessitates drinking more water to combat it. In contrast, if your skin is so dry and tight that people to eczema or psoriasis could perhaps identify, you probably have an extremely dry condition.

Ingredients

Now that you’ve figured out what kind of dry skin you have, it’s time to look at the various active ingredients in moisturisers. Depending on the time of day, different formulations may be available; lotions have a lighter texture than creams, but both provide hydration. Some work better than in others, helping with precise issues and problems that might have been lurking on your face but haven’t been noticed yet.

Collagen and ceramides both help to form a protective layer on the skin’s surface, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

Scent

Make sure to avoid scented moisturisers if you have sensitive skin because they can cause breakouts.

In the end, you’ll have to figure out what kind of moisturiser best suits your requirements and way of life. Oil-based products, for example, are preferred by many consumers because they do not contain any water, which can cause dryness in some people. Others are looking for a low-maintenance option that absorbs speedily in to other their skin.

Natural Remedies for Dry Skin

Improve the skin’s appearance from the inside out.

Even if you’re drinking plenty of water, there are other ways to maintain your skin’s natural moisturising levels. The omega oils found in fish as well as seeds contain beneficial fatty acids which have been meant to reduce inflammatory process on the surface of in out skins whilst still preventing trans epithelial water loss (TEWL).

Wear gloves.

Lack of moisture is a common cause of dry skin. To avoid painful blistering caused by chemicals or other hazards, wear gloves. Gloves are a simple solution. Natural materials the same as cotton or wool, such as those used to make gloves, will not cause allergic reactions in people with sensitive skin, so be sure to wear them if you must.

Incorrect use of cosmetics

If you don’t know what order to apply your skin care in, it can be difficult. You need to pertain oils, serums but rather creams in the orderly fashion and you do waste any product! Before using any facial oils, be sure to use a hydrating moisturiser or herbal moisturiser. When it comes to skin care, it doesn’t have to be a difficult process.

That treatment will be more effective and more cost-effective if this is done correctly! Once these are properly implemented without interruptions from anything at all on the face (like makeup), but only after move on to oil like Bright Control Skin care Oil or Repair service Serum followed by lotions such as SPF 50+ Day Lotion so that they stack nicely around each other while still giving maximum hydration as well as nourishment for cells.

Vitamin-rich foods should be a part of your diet.

Vitamin C is abundant in watermelons and cucumbers, so including them in your diet is a good idea. Antioxidants found in carrots can aid in skin repair while also shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays.

Opt for hypoallergenic clothing and detergent.

If you have dry skin, your clothes as well as laundry detergent can irritate it. As a precaution, wear undergarments of cotton or silk, which are gentle on the skin, under apparel made of wool. When doing the laundry, use hypoallergenic detergent as well.

Apply a moisturiser right away.

After showering, your skin begins to lose moisture within 30 seconds, so it’s critical to moisturise as quickly to prevent dehydration. Gently pat thier face dry before you leave its bathroom, apply serum or moisturiser then a few millilitres of facial moisturizer to seal in that additional layer of moisture. The same goes for body butters and oils if you have dry patches on ones arms, legs, or torso.

Shower

Don’t spend too much time in the shower because you don’t want to waste water. Instead of using hot water to wash your body, try using warm water. Soap should be used sparingly and only in problem areas like the armpits or other folds of the body; however, even “mild” soaps can be damaging when applied liberally all over the body and frequently.

The tried-and-true method for permanently eradicating your postpartum muffin top and regaining your pre-pregnancy body’s shape. 6 tips to help you get in shape after having a baby.

No doubt about it, becoming a mother changes our bodies in a significant way. Pregnancy can be a time of empowerment, but it can also be a time of disappointment once the baby is born. And new changes are brought about by each new baby.

I’d like to share my tips on how to stay in shape after having children because if we don’t take care of our bodies, we could end up with some nasty substantial changes (think of being not able to laugh or stop breathing then without an unpleasant surprise!).

It’s never too late at that point your body get back in shape after a pregnancy or delivery, no matter however many changes it goes through. Having a baby makes it all too easy to fall into bad habits. A packet of cookies or a bag of Potato Chips is all that is needed to satisfy our late-night cravings. I know what I’m talking about!

1. The first step is to concentrate on your core competencies.

After birth, our core, which functions as the brain and command centre for our entire body, is seriously compromised. There is no amount of exercise that will return your flat stomach unless visitors rebuild your core, which can cause injury if it is not functioning properly.

The 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels helped me shed a significant amount of weight after my third child, but my throat still looked bloated and jelly-like, which baffled me.

When it came to my abs, I’d been doing more harm than good. This is the place to begin, and it should be as simple as possible. My diastasis recti was successfully treated with the Mutu System (separated tummy muscles). I completed their 12-week programme to rehabilitate my body’s core. You should check out this programme if you want to get rid of your mummy tummy!

2. Begin slowly.

To get started, get a doctor’s clearance and choose something you’re interested in, but at a beginner’s level. Be aware that your body is still vulnerable and requires special attention. Insanity training or marathon training are not the best ways to get started. You’ll only demotivate yourself and your body won’t be able to handle the strain and you’ll end up injuring yourself.

3. Plan but also stick to it.

What’s most important is that you keep going, no matter what kind of exercise you’re doing. Make a strategy and jot it down to keep it up to date. For whatever reason, don’t skip your next workout. The only thing to do is keep moving forward!

4. Reduce your caloric intake to the minimum necessary

Crisps and biscuits are two of the most common causes of a mummy tummy. Even though these foods are the most pleasurable to eat while breastfeeding (and at any other time in your life), they are harmful to you and your child. Consume Ryvita but instead peanut butter, cheese-filled oatmeal cakes, boiled eggs, and an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables as a snack. Instead of hobnobs for those late-night snacks, keep a bunch of bananas beside the your bed.

5. Sleep and relaxation

As a beginner, it’s important to take regular rest days and get plenty of sleep in order to recuperate from your workouts. In order to ensure that your body receives the rest it requires for recovery, aim to go to bed 30 minutes earlier than you normally would. To get started, aim for three days of exertion per week, with at least 5 minutes of post – natal core work on each day. With babies at a year old, I never exercised for more than 20 minutes at a time, but I never missed a workout as well as made the most of every minute.

6. Lose fat instead of weight.

There is no reason for me to own a fat scale at this point in my life. We can obsess over the number here on scale that we need to reach before we can be satisfied. As a result, even if you’re losing weight and building muscle, you may not notice any change in your weight. Instead of trying to lose weight, focus on staying healthy. When I begin a new exercise regimen, a first thing I do know is that my body shape changes before my weight does.

Let’s get our week off to a great start by getting some exercise in! What kind of workout are you going to do?

The word “weights” conjures up images of macho, over-built women who can crush a hue with their mighty quads. Lifting weights, they reason, will rob them of their feminine curves and make them “look like a man.” I understand – I’m on the same page. Those were the thoughts that ran through my head a few years ago. Now? Weights account for the vast majority of my workouts. What a shock!

So, what’s new, then? For one thing, I was sick of being weak. Because I had no butt, thin limbs, and a soft mid-section, you could call me “skinny fat.” I was constantly lethargic and lethargic. Both a bad nutrition and way too much cardio were to blame.

I also became a mother. As if my innovative postpartum body wasn’t enough of an adjustment, I would just have to lug around one heavy baby all day as well. That’s going to take some guts, and I didn’t have any.

When I did attend group fitness classes, I was blown away by how lifting weights left me feeling, and I’ve never looked back. To say nothing of the fact that I noticed significant shifts in the composition of my body. A gradual transition to weight training was made once I was confident in my abilities. When I first started working out, I was a firm believer in the benefits of strength training.

Here are my main motives for ditching the “cardio queen” moniker and starting to lift weights in your workout regime.

1. Muscle is constantly burning calories.

When you have a lot of muscle mass on your body, it burns calories and fat all day long. While cardio burns calories and fat during the process, that’s all it does…. A higher EPOC (“Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption”) from strength training means that your metabolism will remain elevated for a longer period of time following your workout. Exactly how long? Lifting weights, on the other hand, can keep ones EPOC level elevated for close to 38 hours following an exercise session, according to studies What on earth are you talking about? In other words, even while you’re sleeping, you can be a lean, mean fat-burning machine!

2. No one wishes to have a flat buttocks.

You know it’s true, don’t you? The backside of a woman’s pants is not something she enjoys. Female curves, including toned, perky booties, are a must! Our goal is to be able to do that. The answer is, of course, weight training! Lifting, filling, and toning your gluteal muscles can be achieved by doing normalised exercises like squats and lunges (which all work these muscles). Yes, I’d love to!

3. Strength is a beautiful thing because it equates to confidence.

Is there a time in my life when I was “skinny fat” that I felt good about myself? No, there isn’t. “You’re absolutely beautiful, and yet your loss of faith is not attractive,” my wonderful partner would tell me. Wow. It’s amazing how much better you feel about yourself when you’re in good physical shape, toned, and confident. As a result, I have a greater sense of self-confidence, both in terms of my physical appearance and in terms of my ability to set and achieve personal goals. It’s a great feeling knowing that I can instil the same level of self-assurance in my wonderful children! The painful muscles and a half hour a week I end up working out are worth it, my friends.

That’s all there is to it, sweethearts! Please join me with in trip to being a stronger, extra confident, healthier YOU by debunking the myth of lifting weights making you “manly”!

Do you have guests you need to feed? I used to struggle with whipping up something quick, easy and delicious when we would have overnight guests or early morning visitors. I too often would resort to my instincts (pancakes, waffles or something in that realm) but would quickly get overwhelmed at the thought of needing to add bacon, eggs and such.

My sad attempts to make quick runs to the store to grab the “prettiest”container of breakfast muffins would typically end in either forgetting my wallet or dropping the container. I’d then try to make it home (without anyone noticing me gone) and attempt to assemble the now disheveled scraggly muffins on a plate.

I’ve learned one important thing from my cooking history: When your guests don’t ask you if you made your dish…you know you need help.

I am here to rescue you! Here is your perfect “go-to” recipe for entertaining those tired guests. These are literally The BEST Blueberry Scones I have ever had.. I’ve adapted my recipe from Tyler Florence and Paula Deen (two of my favorite chefs)

Don’t waste your money on container breakfast…Come cook with me!!

  • Adapted From: Tyler Florence and Paula Deen

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose unbleached white flour
  • 3 tbsp of sugar
  • 5 tbsp of cold butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream + extra for brushing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • a few pinches of course vanilla sugar (for topping)

Lemon Glaze:

  • juice from 1 lemon
  • grated peel from lemon
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp cold butter

Directions

Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the cold butter and mix until the mixture looks crumbly (you can use a food processor or two forks). Create a well in the middle and set aside.

  • In a small bowl combine cream and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the cream mixture and sour cream into the well.
  • Fold ingredients with a silicone or wooden spoon until just combined (do not over mix).
  • Add blueberries and gently fold into mixture.
  • Using your hands, combine the mixture together in the bowl and shape into a ball.
  • Flour your work surface and add your dough.
  • Gently flatten and shape the dough to a rectangle shape, about 1 inch thick (Don’t force the shape because you will bust the berries…focus on the width!)
  • Using a pastry cutter or knife, cut your rectangle in half and then into small triangles (see step-by-step pictures in my recipe)
  • Once cut, brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with a course sugar (only if you have the sugar)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place your scones about 1-2 inches apart and bake 15-20 mins or until golden.
  • For lemon glaze, combine butter, lemon juice, powdered sugar and mix over low heat (or pop in microwave for 30 seconds!)

Let scones completely cool before drizzling with lemon glaze!
