Food and drink is on of the main ways we let things into our body. We often think of breathing toxins in, like smoke but the main way in is through our stomach.
So what we eat and drink play a big part on our life. Have you ever heard of the saying 'Gut Feeling' the receptors in our stomach are just the same as those in our brain.
Food affects our mood, hormones, skin, it is amazing really.
We try to eat clean, which is not scrubbed food we have made clean eating easy for you
One of the big moves we have made it to avoid processed food as much as we can. We don't all eat the same Gem loves to make smoothies for her and the kids.
Green smoothies are known as dinosaur juice and brown ones teddy bear juice. Having a Nutribullet makes it very easy to whiz whiz whiz them up. Try my simple beginners smoothie recipe.
You need to include water in your smoothies, as well as making sure you stay hydrated throughout the day. We are very lucky we have good drinking water, but it still needs and extra filter to make sure it is good for bears.
A simple water filter that goes in the door of the fridge does, we use the Brita Water Filter Jug. You do notice the difference from this and normal tap water. Charcoal is an excellent filter we even have some charcoal powder.
We mix a little bit of activated charcoal powder with water and drink it is something we have eaten or drank has a reaction. Even when you are being careful something sneaks through. It is worth having some in the cupboard.
Just because we are eating clean does not mean boring, with a little bit of thought you can make yummy tasty treats, yes treats like cakes and puddings. We have a sweet tooth and life would be so boring without them. You might not have seen it but we have created some free healthy cake recipes called Have Your Cake and Eat it.
Cashew butter is a great staple to have in the cupboard when you are looking to make healthy puddings or just need something sweet. Try slicing an apple, add some cashew butter and a little piece of 85%+ dark chocolate. Yummy!
Don't buy cashew butter in the little jars from the supermarket, you can get a much better bargain buying in bigger sizes we go for a 1kg tub
