10 Super Healthy Foods You Should Keep in The Refrigerator
Some foods should be eaten frequently because of their medicinal and weight loss properties. Make sure you keep these 10 powerful foods in your fridge at all times.1. Organic pastured eggs
Pastured eggs are healthier than eggs from caged hens. Pastured eggs have a better omega 3 to omega 6 ratio and more vitamin E, according to studies. Eggs are also rich in lots of other nutrients that will help you maintain optimal health. Don’t be afraid to eat the yolk, it has most of the nutrients.
2. Organic beets
Beets will benefit liver and the digestive system. They will help detoxify the body and improve overall health. You can eat them raw, roasted, make beet juice. Feel free to add lemon or apple cider vinegar to the juice to make it healthier.
3. Organic coconut milk
Research has shown that coconut milk has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antioxidant properties and it can also boost metabolism. And it’s a great alternative for folks intolerant to lactose. You can use it to make smoothies, juices and so on.

Always keep organic carrots in the fridge. They’re rich in nutrients, and make the perfect snack since they can be eaten raw. Research shows that raw carrots can lower estrogen levels and they’re healthier when eaten with avocado or avocado oil.
5. Organic Sauerkraut
This may come as news to you but one tablespoon of raw sauerkraut has more probiotic than a bottle of probiotic supplements. Make sure you take at least 2 tablespoons of sauerkraut every week.
Kefir has lots of probiotics, vitamins and minerals. This study shows that kefir can fight cancer, improve digestion and improve gut health. You just need kefir grains and milk to make this superfood. Note that kefir in the supermarket isn’t as nutritious.
Liver is one of the healthiest foods you’ll ever eat. It’s loaded with nutrients and easy to prep. Substitute it with meat in some meals.
8. Bone broth
Bone broth is rich is potassium, Sulphur, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. It’s quickly absorbed in the body and will definitely fight inflammation.

Ways to wipe out Winter Tiredness
Many people feel tired and sluggish during winter. If you find yourself longing for your warm, cozy bed more than usual during winter, blame the lack of sunlight. As the days become shorter, your sleep and waking cycles become disrupted, leading to fatigue.
Less sunlight means that your brain produces more of a hormone called melatonin, which makes you sleepy. Because the release of this sleep hormone is linked to light and dark, when the sun sets earlier your body also wants to go to bed earlier, hence you may feel sleepy in the early evening.
While it’s normal for all of us to slow down generally over winter, sometimes lethargy can be a sign of more serious winter depression. If your tiredness is severe and year-round, you could have chronic fatigue syndrome.
5 Tips to fight Winter TirednessSunlight is good for winter tiredness
Open your blinds or curtains as soon as you get up to let more sunlight into your home. And get outdoors in natural daylight as much as possible, even a brief lunchtime walk can be beneficial. Make your work and home environment as light and airy as possible.
Good night's sleep
When winter hits it’s tempting to go into hibernation mode, but that sleepy feeling you get in winter doesn’t mean you should snooze for longer. In fact if you do, chances are you’ll feel even more sluggish during the day.
We don’t technically need any more sleep in winter than in summer. Aim for about eight hours of shuteye a night and try to stick to a reliable sleep schedule. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. And make sure your bedroom is conducive to sleep – clear the clutter, have comfortable and warm bedlinen and turn off the TV.
Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing on dark winter evenings, but you’ll feel more energetic if you get involved in some kind of physical activity every day, ideally so you reach the recommended goal of 150 minutes of exercise a week. Exercise in the late afternoon may help to reduce early evening fatigue, and also improve your sleep.
Winter is a great time to experiment with new and different kinds of activity. Skating is a good all-round exercise for beginners and aficionados alike. If you’re more active, go for a game of badminton, football or tennis under the floodlights. If you find it hard to get motivated to exercise in the chillier, darker months, focus on the positives you’ll not only feel more energetic but stave off winter weight gain.
Learn to relax
Feeling time-squeezed to get everything done in the shorter daylight hours? It may be contributing to your tiredness. Stress has been shown to make you feel fatigued. There’s no quick-fire cure for stress but there are some simple things you can do to alleviate it. So, if you feel under pressure for any reason, calm down with meditation, yoga, exercise and breathing exercises.
Eat the right foods
Once the summer ends, there’s a temptation to ditch the salads and fill up on starchy foods such as pasta, potatoes and bread. You’ll have more energy, though, if you include plenty of fruit and vegetables in your comfort meals.
Winter vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, swede and turnips can be roasted, mashed or made into soup for a warming winter meal for the whole family. And classic stews and casseroles are great options if they’re made with lean meat and plenty of veg. Try to avoid foods containing lots of sugar – it gives you a rush of energy but one that wears off quickly.

My 'Finding Inspiration' series was written out of a need that comes up in my
practice, most often in Spring and Fall. I feel we all need a bit of
enlightenment now and then to help us move forward. Finding motivation through
inspiration can be the spark which sets you on your way!
Spring is here. What better time to take advantage of the power of our sense of
We can find great inspiration through the power of our olfactory senses. Spring
time is the season of renewal, where flowers blossom, all green things grow and
people feel a renewal of energy within themselves. People even begin to wear
lighter colored clothing to "match" the environment around them. Seek your
inspiration in the scent of fresh flowers filling the air, as well as the bloom

wish is that you will share them with a friend, and let them experience some of
Essential Oils work on several different levels. They affect most people through
the sense of smell. The sense of smell is the most complexed and the sensitive
of the five senses.
Once the Olfactory receptors identify an aroma, nerve cells relay this
information directly to the Limbic system of the brain. Here, aromas can trigger
memories and influence behavior. Additionally, the Limbic system works in
conjunction with the pituitary gland and the Hypothalamus region of the brain to
regulate the hormonal activities thus triggering the production of hormones that
govern appetite, body temperature, insulin production, overall metabolism,
stress levels, sex drive, and conscious thought and reactions. The Limbic system
also influences immunity. Essential oils can have a positive affect on all these
Essential oils work through the skin as well. They can stimulate surface skin
cells, calm inflamed or irritated skin, release muscle spasms, soothe sore
muscles and relieve muscle tension.
Essential oils are used in a variety of ways.
* You can inhale them directly from the bottle.
* You can use them for skin care, hair care, and body care, as well as, for many
* Personal hygiene, aromatherapy baths, foot baths.
* Giving and receiving aromatherapy massages.
* Inhaling aromatherapy oil blends to relieve congestion, clear your head and
make breathing easier.
* You can also make wonderful fragrances with essential oils.
* Aromatherapy can prevent or ease an assortment of ailments. Essential oils
boost the immune system.
* You can treat aches, pains, injuries, with essential oils.
* Aromatherapy can help reduce stress, lift depression, restore emotional
* You can disperse essential oils through the air in your home or office to
increase productivity or alter moods.
