Health: Down in the dumps diet

Many people around the world eat unhealthy diets, it's the product of a busy lifestyle-- and also attributes to increased inflammation, which in turn causes early onset of age related illnesses: heart disease, cancer, chronic fatigue to name a few. So let's turn this trend around!!

I am a self proclaimed addict. I'm addicted to caffeine, carbs, chocolate, sugar-- I have the appetite of a 5 year old! And this is probably why I am always tired, can't get out of bed and am cranky all the time! So I'm vowing now to change this and I encourage you to do the same. 

Limit intake of carbs, caffeine, sugar and fat. 
Increase intake of colorful vegetables and fruits. Whole grains are your new best friend. Olive oil, fish and flax will do you a world of good. Almonds! Berries! Honey! 

Energy Smoothie
Brew a cup of green tea and soak frozen, chopped ginger in it and add some honey. After it has steeped for 5 minutes, pour it in a blender. Add two handfuls of blueberries and some flax seed peanut butter and blend. It's a different taste and the ginger might be a little strong but it'll make you feel revived!
