Quinoa (pronounced as keen-wah) is an amazing, gluten-free and complete protein alternative to wheat. The tiny quinoa made quite a big statement when it was deemed as the “super crop” by United Nation Food and Agriculture Organization for its numerous health benefits and rich nutrient profile.
The ancient crop was considered sacred by the Incans, who named it as “the mother of all grains”. It is the native of South America, where that staple crop has been grown for ages and still continues to be its largest exporter worldwide.
The tasty and quick-cooking food is often confused to be a grain because of the way it is cooked and used, when it technically is a pseudo-cereal or a seed like buckwheat.
Journaling allows you to keep track of important revelations you have or milestones you reach along your journey to health and happiness. Attracting the life of your dreams begins by declaring what it is you really want, and there’s no better place to record this declaration than in a journal.
But where to start? You have so much to say and so many habits to record that the boundless blank pages of a journal can be a little overwhelming.

We all know almonds as being the protein-packed super food that curbs our hungers, helps our digestion, and can be used as the base for some scrumptious sweets, but these little powerhouses are also incredible for our complexion.
A third of the toxins and waste your body expelled daily is released through pores in the skin. That’s about a pound a day. But if your pores are clogged, the waste is unable to get out and may build up, causing sickness, sluggishness, and fatigue.
Dry brushing your torso and limbs anywhere from five to twenty minutes a day brushes away dead skin and unclogs your pores, allowing toxins to escape your body. What’s more, dry brushing may give your internal functions an extra boost by stimulating the lymphatic system.
Your kidneys work 24/7 to detoxify your system. This means processing everything that goes into your body- from food to medications to environmental pollutants- and booting out substances that could harm our organs and cause symptoms of fatigue, eczema, and moodiness. It’s an exhausting job, and your kidneys deserve to be shown a little TLC every now and again.
Doing a cleanse or detox is the equivalent to giving your kidneys a nice big hug. Detoxes fill your system with whole, nutrient rich foods, and give your kidneys a break from the toxins they’re usually subject to. There are plenty of pre-constructed detox plans out there to walk you through anything from a 48 hour to 3 day detox, but there are also plenty of simple daily practices that can help with continuous detoxification or gear you up for a longer program.
Coconuts have quickly become to the health world what buffalo were to the Native Americans. That is to say, every single part of the coconut is being used to boost our healthy and tantalize our tastebuds in some way.
We put coconut milk into refreshing desserts swap out peanut butter on our toast for creamy coconut mana, create ingenious grain-free baked goods with coconut flour, stir fry our dinner in coconut oil, and, of course, sprinkle toasted coconut onto everything and everything for a taste of the tropics.
