Wake up, Metabolism! Here’s our version of the popular Morning Detox drink!
Taken 20 minutes before breakfast, it’s great for revving up your metabolism, cleaning your system and boosting energy. As the women in our family all have auto-immune issues, we add 1 teaspoon of turmeric and cinnamon each to fight chronic inflammation and balance blood sugar levels.
For a simple detox recipe, try this for breakfast! It has good proteins, fats and carbs to energize your day.
- 1 cup rolled oats. (soaked overnight to help digestion of the fibers in this carb)
- 3 tablespoon Chia seeds (soaked overnight with the oats)
- 1 cup non-dairy milk (use to soak oats and chia seeds. Examples of non-dairy milk are almond, rice, cashew or oat milk)
Hair plays a large part of how we look and feel about ourselves, so why not take care of it? Being healthy, using clean products and detoxing applies to hair too – especially in humid environments that require lots of hair care!
*For those who are switching from commercial to organic shampoos, please note that hair detox can take up to 2 to 3 weeks, so be patient! Some people will experience greasy hair as they detox - we promise it’s worth the wait for naturally light, shiny, bouncy hair.
The sultry HK humidity is starting to settle in. Although I adore warm weather, the humidity and heat presents new skin and hair challenges: flat / frizzy hair, heat rash, clogged pores, bug bites, sun burnt skin…I could go on and on.
I’ve testing some new products in preparation for summer and will be blogging the results here. Here are my results from regular to organic shampoo and conditioner, which was the most (happily!) dramatic. Let me just say, I would really recommend anyone who hasn’t tried organic hair products to have a go at it. You won’t regret it!
Thoroughly cleaning a household down to the smallest corners, organizing or re-organizing spaces , and throwing away accumulated junk or items no longer in use. Traditionally done in spring time in colder climates.
It’s time for spring cleaning! It’s not really our idea of fun, but it does bring a certain amount of satisfaction. For some, it’s a cathartic task that mentally reset our minds. For those of us with allergies…it brings itching and rash and endless sneezing. To help, here are our best methods to mitigate Spring Cleaning allergies!
