Happy Shark Week! The Sea is Healing!

Yes sharks can be scary creatures! Yikes! I would not want to be in the way of a hungry shark. (and yes I know, they don’t attack all of the time) The sea on the other hand is a very effective healing agent! Read on!!

The ocean has such an abundant amount of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are essential to us. It is the ultimate healer. If one gets a tattoo, piercing, cut, scrape, or burn, these minerals help make the healing process much faster!

The ocean water also improves elasticity in the skin, helps get rid of dermatitis, reduces the appearance of cellulite, and even helps with weight loss!! Google that!

Another bonus is there is a study that has been proven by drinking small amounts of sea water daily helps boost immunity and helps diminish sickness. Google that too! I am not kidding!

The sand from the beach is such a great exfoliator! Next time you are at the beach, bring a Ziploc bag or a container and get some sand!! (Just make sure there is no litter in it or else it will suck!)

There are so many products out there that use the elements of sand and surf. Get some! It is totally worth it!

I will be watching Shark Week all week! Woohoo!

Do you like the beach? Why? Why not? Leave a comment below!

It is All About Clean Eating!

We all have been hearing on the news about how food manufacturers are pretty much destroying out quality of food. It is horrific! Here in this article (it will be extensive, but so worth it!), I will try to give as much information about Eating Clean.

It is a fairly new concept to me, and probably is for a lot of people too, so I will try to make it as simple as possible. Clean eating is a way of life. It feeds and fuels our bodies to stay healthy, without all the harsh preservatives and chemicals that we find in a lot of products out there.

By clean eating, one may experience:

  • Weight loss
  • More energy
  • Boost in immunity
  • Decreased risk of certain types of diseases like diabetes, stroke, heart disease and cancers
  • Savings!! Lots of money is being saved here!!

So let’s start looking at the types of foods we will be eating from now on…

I went on Google to find a website that has it simple and written in a way that it is easy to understand so here is a website that prepared a shopping list of foods to buy and renovate the pantry!

http://www.thegraciouspantry.com/clean-eating-shopping-list-for-beginners/

This is the best article I found so far that makes it easy for me to go grocery shopping. I will tell you this though, don’t be discouraged and think it is going to be hard or anything like that. At first I was completely intimidated by the list. Just pick what you want.

**HINT: I look up clean eating recipes, and then go grocery shopping. It ensures that I have only what I need in the pantry**

…and now I have a recipe to share! I tried it out and made it!! It came out delicious!!
