4 ways to HIDE your spinach with other foods

For the 2% of people who absolutely love the taste of spinach this may not be for you.. For the rest of us, these are my best ways to hide the solid taste of spinach by itself! Yay for other yummy foods that help 1: Blueberry + spinach smoothie Sounds gross, right? I guarantee unless your an extreme baby you wont even taste this!

Let me start off with saying that sugar is not bad for you, it IS however not great when it is not paired with fiber. Why would I say that?

Avoid getting sick with these healthy drink alternatives

We all know the holidays get crazy, your going to eat some fun foods and that’s ok. Don’t beat yourself up about it but DO be proactive about keeping yourself healthy!

During the holiday season this is one of my favorite things to do for two reasons! 1: Your body gets use to pre-workout or caffeine if you take it regularly so this is a good way to reset your adrenaline response 2: While you can still enjoy your favorite meals and desserts, its an easy...

Natural Remedies: 5 ways GINGER cures common illness

Think before we had the common medicines we have today.. what did people use to cure their sickness? I would imagine food, since somehow it still works for MANY minor health issues today. You would also see people self-diagnosing way more then they do now. If you notice, when you go to the doctor somehow most sicknesses can be treated with very few medicines. Is that really curing the issue though? or does that same issue keep coming back or persisting? This is why I began my health journey in the first place and let me be clear, I am NO doctor and NO dietician. This is precisely why I am qualified to tell you about my findings. I am...
