3/01/173/01/17 Ready to simmer down and give your body a boost before bedtime? We’ve got the perfect, healthy nightcap for you, and you may have heard of it: golden milk.

Benefits of Turmeric: Turmeric’s benefits are so good, one 2013 study said it’s almost too[…]

2/22/172/22/17 Hot wellness drinks are totally the new green juice — and many are swapping their morning cup of joe for a healthful tonic or hot elixir that offers nutrition and healing properties with every sip. If caffeine is an anxiety trigger or keeping you up at night, it’s time to start dabbling in these healthy lattes. One that you’ve likely been seeing all over your social media? Pink lattes. These pastel blends get their rich, rosy hue from detoxifying beetroot, which can also help improve your energy and mood.

2/20/172/20/17 In my goal to make the first meal of my day less carb-centric, I’ve officially reached my limit on eggs. Serious fatigue has set in over having another frittata, scramble, or omelet. While smoothies are a no-brainer alternative to eggs, it’s pretty easy to blend up a 600-calorie breakfast all in the name of health. Thankfully Natalie Carey, certified trainer and sports nutritionist at DIAKADI Fitness, was ready to share her recipe for a protein-packed green smoothie with me. Creamy and delicious like a milkshake, it’s the perfect balance of everything you need for a happy morning: heart-healthy fats, energizing protein, brain-boosting carbs, and fiber, a dependable friend to digestion. With a macro split of 30 percent fat, 35[…]
