Website of the Week!

Happy beginning to the week folks!

This morning I just have to share the coolest website! Called “Mix My Own”. They’re a cereal company. Basically, you get online and select all the ingredients that you would like to have in your cereal and they whip it up for you, package it and send it to your doorstep! Cool hey! They also have an international company, just google “Mix My Own”. They have gluten free, wheat free, and preservative free options too.

Happy Anniversary 365 Days of Purity Friends!

For those of you who have “liked” #365 Days of Purity since day one, did you know it has actually been 365 days? Well done to those of you who have continued to improve your health by eating a bit cleaner, whether with your entire diet or with some parts of it – you have changed the outlook for your health in the future and that is an amazing achievement. I’d love to know how it has made some of you feel: Post below and let me know of any changes you have felt, and if your happier with this way of life compared to what you were before! I’ll share my story to get you kick started!

Heres to another 365 days of happiness, health and passion for food and fitness.

A year ago I visited a dietitian because I could not bare another day of living with IBS. I started clean eating under her guidance and haven’t looked back a day since. I was having complications with my stomach every 2-3 days, and that has been minimised to once or twice every 2 months. For anyone else with IBS – you can understand, that this is an amazing improvement. In regards to eating cleaner and healthier, I feel much better, with more energy and deeper sleeping, I crave foods like vegetables instead of sweets and have discovered some beautiful and delicious food along the way. I hope your health and wellbeing has improved also. Let me know!! Happy anniversary guys! xx

Benefits:

Fresh pineapple is low in calories.

Fresh pineapple is an excellent source of antioxidant vitamin; vitamin C. Vitamin C is required for the collagen synthesis in the body. Collagen is the main structural protein in the body required for maintaining the integrity of blood vessels, skin, organs, and bones. Regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body protect from scurvy; develop resistance against infectious agents (boosts immunity) and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.

In addition, this fruit is rich in B-complex group of vitamins like folates, thiamin, pyridoxine, riboflavin and minerals like copper, manganese and potassium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Copper is a helpful cofactor for red blood cell synthesis. Manganese is a co-factor for the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is a very powerful free radical scavenger.
