Beauty In A Pack

What To Eat

SNACK ATTACK -If you need a boost before heading to the gym and some reach for a snack to help with recovery after exercise. Whenever your weak moments attack, these are three of my many favourite portable snacks (kept on rotation in my desk, car and bag) so that when hunger strikes I can reach for something full of real energy. All made with wholesome ingredients that you will recognize and can easily pronounce (always a good gauge of whether you should eat something or not). Stock up and fuel up. 

What To Buy

GREENS ON THE GO - To achieve optimal nutrition and vitality, nothing beats a diet packed with fresh dark leafy greens. But unfortunately (as yet) there aren't cafés on every corner offering kale as a lunch special. So until that day comes, these concentrated sachets are a great green fix you can add to water and supplement your diet anywhere and at any time. They’re jammed with twelve chlorophyll-rich green foods including organic spirulina, chlorella, kale sprouts, wheat grass juice, nettles and arctic fresh seaweed - but what you really need to know is that they improve your digestion, your skin and prevent the build up of toxins from our pollutant-filled environment and diets. 

What To Try

FEEL THE HEAT - Ginger is super powerful stuff with an amazing ability to heal the body in so many ways, but recently there has been one scandal after another about potential toxins lingering in the ginger - even organic ginger - that we are buying (read up on this yourselves so you know what to look for!). In the meantime, as if by magic because I was missing it in my daily routine, I learned about the most incredible source of pure organic ginger. It's from a small, unadulterated island in Fiji where they hand-harvest young ginger, grind it without using excessive heat to protect the nutrients and add absolutely nothing else. This is the real thing - the most potent real ginger you can buy. First thing every morning I put a bit in a warm glass of water with lemon. I add the powder to vegetables, soups and desserts and make tea every night before bed. Ginger reduces inflammation, helps ease nausea, relieves sore muscles and is one of the best gifts you can give your digestive system - so start being generous.
