How Detox Your World Changed Mine Part II

Over a decade ago now, I stumbled upon a book that opened my eyes. It was called ‘Detox Your World’, by Shazzie. By the end, I felt like my body was swimming in chemicals and poisons gathered from the processed foods I was eating, the water I was drinking, the mobile phone I was using. I realised that I even had substances in my mouth from dental work that could have been poisioning me. I remember feeling anxious about the health risks I had exposed myself to, completely unaware of the risks they posed! So, with knowledge came power and I decided to take steps to detox my world, and introduce a more systematic approach of cleansing and detoxing my body to reduce the health and performance risks an overexposure to toxins can post. I took the approach that it’s better to do more things right, than everything right as

By the end, I felt like my body was swimming in chemicals and poisons gathered from the processed foods I was eating, the water I was drinking, the mobile phone I was using, the clothes I was wearing, the carpet I was walking on, and even the toothpaste I smeared on my teeth each day.

Kale, Spinach and Wild Rocket Smoothie – an amazing recipe!

An all- kale smoothie could take a bit of getting used to as it's an acquired taste, so I have been experimenting with my blender, to find something really tasty and very green. The thing with experimenting is that you need to have a few disasters before you hit a success! For instance, two weeks ago, my green soup was filled with the most wonderful ingredients, but alas, together the taste was quite awful to be honest. It was the same with my first few kale smoothies. However I learnt from the 'experiment' and today I prepared a wonderful green smoothie that was packed with nutrition and tasted fantastic, so here are the ingredients. The key is to balance the greens to your taste palet. Rocket packs a peppery punch and kale is a strong greensy flavour so if you're a beginner, go heavy on the spinach instead as it's

Electrolyte lemonade recipe for faster post exercise recovery

Electrolyte lemonade recipe for faster post exercise recovery Inspired by the good weather, this summer,  Lisa at Team Raw Energy has increased her levels of exercise, upping from her few regular yoga classes a week, to 5/7 days running @5K in the forest, and 4-6 hot yoga classes! All of this activity, started to make her feel physically and mentally fatigued in the afternoons with a thirst that could not be quenched with just water, and so started to research a solution. She wanted faster post exercise recovery - more 'raw energy'! And her nutritionist advised her to take electrolytes. Within just one week, no longer was she nodding off at her laptop nor did she have such a thirst. What are electrolytes and why should you want to take them for post exercise recovery and rehydration? Electrolytes are minerals (mostly magnesium, potassium, chloride and sodium) which break into small,

3 Quick Insights So You Can Develop More Healthy Habits

Having completed the 30 day RBI Living Well Challenge myself, which  have been covered in previous articles, (see the end of this post), I wanted to share 3 quick insights for more healthy habits, just like the ones I send directly to my subscribers. 1. Experiment Think of every new initiative as an opportunity to learn. This mindset of ‘test & learn’ takes off the pressure as you can always stop, but build your confidence. The 30 Day challenge provided the perfect trigger to get involved and start to move. Starting is one of the hardest parts. 2. Get support Perhaps you’re great at motivating yourself, without any external input. If that's you, then congratulations. Many people, though, need the support of friends and colleagues to achieve their own personal goals, not only to get started, but to keep going when things become tough. The 2016 Living Well Challenge was
