These super-food-filled protein-packed bites are perfect for a pre-workout boost or mid-day recharge. Turmeric and ginger are gut-loving, anti-inflammatory foods that will have your body giving you a high five!
Chronic inflammation is a serious, modern condition due to the Standard American Diet (SAD) – and due to our over-stressed lives, both external and internal.. External stressors include lack of sleep, overflowing email boxes at work, over scheduled children, and so on. Internal stressors include food sensitivities, inflammation, and prescription drugs (just to name a few).
Now that we’re past the holidays, our bodies need a reboot. Along with bone broth, there are many ways to incorporate healthy, anti-inflammatory foods to your daily menu. While we often plan on making better choices, it can be difficult navigating the grocery aisle. Deciding which foods are better than others for combatting inflammation takes some prior knowledge!
Boston’s been absolutely freezing this week, which means one thing – a serious need for hearty, warming foods, like this soup.
Have you ever heard of turmeric milk? If not you are in for a real treat. This time of year with winter quickly approaching our immune systems need a little TLC to ward of those nasty colds and flus. Here is my little secret to beating the cold before it takes over.
With autumn upon us, our bodies naturally crave warmer foods. Who doesn’t love that sensation of hot, hardy food in their belly? It warms you from the inside out, and helps you feel cozy even when the weather outside gets nasty…
But what about physical benefits? How can we treat ourselves to warm, wholesome food that’s also going to provide our bodies with the essentials of good health?
The short answer: bone broth.
I was introduced to apple cider vinegar a few years back when I was struggling with symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome or IBS and systemic candidiasis. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been touted for many years because of its medicinal properties. It is anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral so it can alleviate the occasional heartburn, soothe a sore throat and YES even get rid of persistent warts, as well as tackle an overgrowth of yeast just to name a few properties.
So what exactly is apple cider vinegar you may ask?? Well, they take crushed apples and add yeast. The yeast then ferment the natural sugar from the apples and turn it into alcohol. Then, bacteria are added to the alcohol solution which further ferments the apple solution. The result is acetic acid which is the main ingredient in ACV. My “go to” ACV is Bragg’s because it contains the “mother,” or the blob that is rich in probiotics and strands of protein and enzymes.
