Nourish Yourself with Delicious Alkaline Smoothies, Teas and Juices
Hydration and wellbeing go hand in hand. I always say- “It’s not only about what you eat, it’s also about what you drink”. However, I am not here to preach, I know that our modern, faced-paced world can be very demanding. More often than not, we just forget about proper hydration. I have been there as well. Then, we end up feeling tired, moody and with a headache. Oh, great excuse for another cup of coffee only to end up more dehydrated and stressed out. Of course, a nice cup of coffee can be a great treat and I have nothing against it, however, what we should really focus on is creating the foundation of hydration. There are many ways to go about it and to enjoy it. Alkaline drinks can be enjoyed both in winter (check out my post about warm healthy drinks here), and in summer. This post will show you a few easy recipes that include nutrient packed smoothies, juices and herbal teas plus herb infused water. Start using those recipes and get your energy back, naturally!

You may also want to check out my previous post for more information (and a free audio you can listen to on the go). We live in a very result-oriented society where everyone wants everything now, or even yesterday. Because of that, there are many people who get so fixated on weight loss and switching from one diet to another (just to lose weight fast) that they are never able to create long-term changes. More often than not, they torture their bodies with unrealistic starvation diets. The alkaline diet, on the other hand, takes a wholesome holistic approach where you learn to treat your body with respect and nutrients it deserves. Here’s how… Continue reading

Smart Way to Use Raw Foods to Have Unstoppable Energy and Zest for Life!
As an ex-caffeine addict, I know that it’s not easy to transition from hectoliters of coffee to green smoothies. Very few people can go cold turkey even if, deep inside, they want to. It’s because of the fact that when your body gets addicted to caffeine, it starts suffering from side effects, like headaches or even moodiness, when you just “switch it off” from one day to another. I also believe that there is nothing wrong with an occasional use of caffeine. Personally, I am a big fan of green tea. Of course, don’t overdo it. This is why I recommend you try this smoothie. It will help you make a transition to quit or reduce coffee, reduce anxiety in your life and just FEEL good. Continue reading

How to Stay Healthy in Unhealthy Environments
I recently got an email from a reader and they wanted to confide in me about a problem that is not uncommon- how to stay motivated and carry on your health journey if everyone around you does the opposite? That person told me she enjoyed a healthy, plant-based inspired lifestyle for more than 10 years…Then, because of her work/ business, she was forced to move to a rather depressing part of her country where most people are not at all interested in any holistic transformation. Not to mention any basic self-care. Now, it takes her more than an hour to drive to get some healthy stuff. In the local stores in her area, people actually conform to unhealthy foods because, again, most people don’t care what they eat. To make things worse- she feels laughed at whenever she shows any interest for a healthy lifestyle…In the end, she put on weight, got a bit depressed and asked me for support to get back on track. She asked me for tips and resources on living a healthy life in an unhealthy town…how to break free from bad environments….In her own words: “I can’t even find yoga-it’s that bad. I guess I’ve hit rock bottom and am just looking for support in any way. I appreciate all you do and put out into the world” Continue reading

Ashwagandha for Stress Relief, Weight Loss & Wellness
Ashwagandha is an ancient Ayurvedic healing herb that has been used for centuries to heal a wide variety of conditions. This powerful herb is best known for its restorative benefits. In the Sanskrit language, Ashwagandha translates to “the smell of a horse”. This translation indicates that the herb conveys the agility and strength of a stallion. Traditionally, this herb has been administered to people to help them strengthen their immune systems following an illness.
This herb belongs to the same family as the tomato plant does. It bears red fruit that is close to the size of a raisin, which grows inside of its yellow oval-shaped leaves and flowers. The Ashwagandha plant can be found in drier regions of India, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. Today, you can also find it going in milder climates, including some places across the United States.
There are many applications of Ashwagandha in the modern world. It is still used to boost and strengthen immune systems, but can also be used for a variety of other reasons. If you tend to struggle with symptoms such as stress, fatigue, lack of energy, or difficulty concentrating, adding Ashwagandha to your diet can help alleviate these symptoms and refresh your sense of wellbeing.
