Health + Lifestyle
Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day…and while you walk, smile.
Are you preparing your liver for winter? Make fresh apple juice with ginger as a daily cleanse.
Be positive! A healthy mental attitude bolsters the immune system! Cultivate a sense of humour – laughter strengthens white blood cells.
Exercise is like telling your body “you’re going to hate me for this but you’ll thank me later”.
Morning juice: carrot, apple, ginger, beet, celery – a perfect harmony of flavours and what a great way to start the day @rawfoodbliss
Something to think about
Proper nutrition is the fuel needed for vibrant health.

Always remember you are braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem and Smarter than you think.
Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.
We don’t need to eat as much to sustain ourselves as we think we do. Eat small portions, eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly.
