Super Green Apple and Spirulina Smoothie
Green apples are known to be an excellent anti-ageing ingredient due to their high fiber and anti-oxidant properties; they help maintain healthy, supple skin. Green apples are also great for nourishing the skin due to their vitamin density and are also great for skin whitening and brightening. If organic, apples are best eaten with the skin on as it contains a large amount of the apple’s nutrients. Spirulina is a super food that is made from algae and is known for its immune boosting properties. If you don’t want to use spirulina in this recipe, you can also use barley grass. Ginger is another great addition as its anti-inflammatory properties also help to boost the immune system. The addition of banana to this smoothie gives it a potassium rich base and the Brazil nuts not only add some protein and healthy fats, but they are also high in selenium, which is essential cognitive function, fertility and the immune system. Ground cinnamon is known for its ability to stabilize blood sugar levels, rounding off this smoothie combination as a great option for breakfast. I really recommend this smoothie for beginners as it tastes great and is really easy to make. Continue reading

Can This Program Really Help You Look and Feel Amazing?
I have been receiving many questions about the Total Wellness Cleanse Program lately, and since I have been through the program twice myself (and I will do it again), I wanted to give you my honest opinion and what you can expect from it.
Some of the questions I got from my followers were: “But isn’t it just another online health scam?” or “How can I know I can trust this guy”, or: “I am not too sure if I can commit to a cleanse”, or” But Marta, you always say you are not a proponent of drastic cleanses and weird detoxes- these are your own words”. Well, in this blog post, we are going to dive deep into the philosophy behind the Total Wellness Cleanse and we will also “investigate” its co-creator, Yuri Elkaim. I hope that the information I present in this post, will help you make a decision so that you know whether this program is actually for, as well as when it’s the best time to commit to it and how to go about it.
Alkaline Green Drinks Made Painless (Quick’n’Easy!)
I often get asked about alkaline supplements, green powders as well as how to alkalize fast. The purpose of this post is to give you some really simple recommendations and warn you against some common “healthy supplement” scams. OK, so maybe you heard that you can magically lose weight with the latest green powder mix? Or that you can use some mysterious green herb from the other side of the planet and it will solve all your problems? Well, first of all, the most important thing is to focus on is your nutrition. No amount of supplements will help if you miss this step. Enrich your diet with plenty of vegetables and wholesome foods and avoid processed crap, sodas, excess caffeine, dairy, and alcohol. Even though there is so much conflicting information when it comes to healthy diets, there are two things that always remain the same and most experts agree on: eat more vegetables and eliminate fast food as well as foods that contain chemicals and preservatives. I think this is really common-sense…
