Last week Zoe and I thought we deserved some pampering —> Check out what we got up to:
Over the past few days I have been presented with a few challenges. Challenges arise all the time in life and what I have learnt is that the challenge doesn’t define you, rather the way that you choose to deal with it.
I am lucky to have very special friends and this week they were there for me to download and reflect with. Life has been crazy for the past few years for me and all of a sudden it all caught up with me and I felt a little overwhelmed.
Thanks to the girls for the phone calls, chats, green teas and margarita’s this week. You make me laugh at myself and I don’t know what I would do without you.
If you haven’t worked it out yet Mother Nature has been producing wholesome foods that harmonize perfectly with our bodies since the dawn of time…and man has been trying to outsmart Mother Nature with his inferior products for the past 50 years. A good example of man getting it all WRONG is when he tries to produce low-fat dairy products.
Full-fat dairy products from cows, goats or sheep provide a whole host of valuable nutrients including protein, calcium and fat. Organic whole milk, cream and natural yoghurt contain nothing artificial and healthy type and amount of fat, these fats trigger hormones that fill you up and prevent over-eating, they also slow the release of sugar into your bloodstream, which means longer lasting energy and less fat being stored.
Skim milk products do not provide the nutrition, fullness-factor or low GI effect and therefore are not as good for long-term weight loss as full-fat dairy. If full-fat dairy is too heavy for your gut, simply add water to your milk or consume less of it.
My favourite treat is some beautiful full fat yoghurt. Either goats, sheep or Greek topped with some berries and flaxseed meal! Make the switch and see how much better you will feel :)
