Pure-le Liquid Greens Chlorophyll

We have all heard how healthy leafy greens are for you. Part of the enormous health benefits are due to chlorophyll - the green pigment found in the leaves. Available in most health food stores, liquid chlorophyll will enhance your digestion, increase your energy, gently cleanse your system and support your immune system. Loaded with essential minerals and intensely alkaline, chlorophyll also helps to promote regularity. To top it off, research has also shown chlorophyll to be helpful in weight reduction and cessation of cravings.

I recommend adding 1 teaspoon into a large glass of room temperature water. Available in mint flavour, kosher and vegan. www.purelenatural.com

Pure and simple's facial oil

Do not be scared to put oil on your skin! Each night, I apply Pure and Simple's nourishing facial oils for a deeply hydrating effect. Created based on your ayurvedic dosha (i.e., vata, kapha or pitta) each one is specific to your skin type and is nourishing, hydrating and has a beautiful, subtle scent.

  1. Load up on greens.
    The rule is a minimum of 2-3 servings of greens per day nutrient rich and calorie light!

  2. Eat until you're sufficiently sufficed. 
    Take time to eat your meals to allow your brain to register that you are full (20 minutes per meal is recommended). 

  3. Keep hydrated. 
    In order to stay optimally hydrated, ensure you are drinking 8 glasses of water per day (that's about 2 L). Swap your second cup of coffee with an herbal or green tea! 

  4. Watch your grain intake. 
    Grains tend to be one of the hardest foods for our bodies to digest. Try going grain free for a week (or alternating grain free days) to help boost weight loss. 

  5. Exercise. 
    Walking, swimming or yoga a minimum of 3x per week is recommended.
