#Food and #brain and #energy levels or reply to Sanaa

I was asked on youtube if the way I eat, aka healthy eating, had an impact on my mental health and my energy levels.

Not eating sugar definitely helps me to stay focus and work better with my brain, while having less mood swings.

Furthermore, I attribute the way I can handle so many things in my life to healthy eating habits, whether it is being a single mother of two very time-consuming kids or moving from one continent to another within two years.

My way of eating is simple: fresh produce! I add nuts and seeds, seaweed and sardines.

Naked Chocolate #book review #rawcacao for all #chocolate lovers

Naked Chocolate #book review #rawcacao for all #chocolate lovers

Naked Chocolate has been written by David Avocado Wolfe and Shazzie and it is entirely dedicated to raw chocolate. Is this why this book is surrounded by love and kindness?

I highly recommend reading this book because it is very informative, detailed and interesting.

The first part of the book teaches us the history of cacao, notably how it was used as currency at some point. Then, David Avocado Wolfe and Shazzie describe all the amazing health benefits of raw cacao.

Lastly, Naked Chocolate offers us amazing, simple and delicious recipes, illustrated by photos which makes the mouth water at their sight.

I gave the book Naked Chocolate as a gift to an angel who graced my life with his presence for a few months, as I write in my book The Knot in the Spiral.

Naked Chocolate is definitely more than just a book…

Why is #spirulina so good for us or visit of a spirulina farm

Why is #spirulina so good for us or visit of a spirulina farm

I started using spirulina when I was pregnant with my daughter 13 years ago.

Today my friend my sister I invite you to discover with me a magical place for living food fans: the spirulina production site Solis Culturae in the South of France.

Lilian was very generous in opening the doors of the spirulina farm and in letting us know how he grows this extraordinary seaweed.

Rich in iron and proteins, the fabulous seaweed is a whole food, beneficial at all ages (I give some to my children) and at all stages of life.

For women, the iron contained in spirulina is such an ally during menstruation. The genius tip from Lilian? Enjoy it with a source of vitamin C (kiwi, citrus fruit family) to make the iron even better absorbed by the body.

Enjoy the visit my friend my sister!

How to #eat #healthy or products without a bar code

Super #fresh #summer #salad recipe for #selfcare

I believe in a healthy lifestyle and optimum nutrition but not in complicated things.

I was introduced to the great app Yuka, which allows you to check the amount of additives, fat and sugar in the products you buy at the supermarket by scanning their bar code.

However I would rather keep it even more simple by buying almost only fresh fruits and vegetables. My raw cacao nibs from Raw Living come with a bar code but in 5 kilo bags to save money.

Keeping things as easy as possible is the best way to stick to healthy habits for a very long time. Forever? I believe it is possible my friend my sister. You certainly deserve it.

 

 

Why take probiotics after an antibiotic course? #intestines

Why take probiotics after an antibiotic course? #intestines

Just do it my friend my sister: if you have to take antibiotics, pleeeeease take some probiotics afterwards to rebuild your intestinal flora. Then feed these nice guys with prebiotics or fiber in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables. There you have it. Take good care.

For more detailed explanation, there is nobody like Markus Rothkranz to explain it to you.
