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
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
Energize Yourself with This Guilt Free Vegan Smoothie Treat!
Raw cocoa is known to be one the most powerful and rich sources of anti-oxidants, closely followed by berries. Foods containing anti-oxidants are in many cases referred to as being superfoods. What makes anti-oxidants so important is that they possess anti-ageing properties that not only help you fight the signs of ageing in your skin, but also prevent the premature aging of your body’s cellular makeup. This smoothie is a very tasty and incredibly healthy way to start your day. The banana also adds a nutritional punch with its healthy carbohydrate properties and high potassium quota; potassium is important for optimum muscle function and recovery and therefore is also very helpful when focusing on anti-ageing. The addition of coconut milk gives this recipe a good dose of heart-healthy and cholesterol lowering fats, and the almond butter not only gives it a nutty taste but also adds a protein boost.

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.
