It has been and is still a craze. A craze that you could say is labelled as 'clean' eating.
I don't really believe in 'clean' eating - people and the media paint a bad picture on the subject. I simply believe in eating foods that fuel you best and you feel benefit you. If you are feeling sluggish, tired and unwell off foods you need to address that. Whether it means cutting down meat, cutting out fried food or simply just introducing fresher products into your diet. Everyone is different! Eating well should not be slated and branded by the media as 'clean' eating that is no fun and will make you unwell.
I thought I would try these shots out and see what all the fuss was about.
I suffer with sickness and always start every morning with a ginger tea to help this. So I felt if this worked it may be a morning alternative. Ginger is also known for its amazing health benefits:
1. Help relieve digestive problems
2.Relieves tooth ache
3. Fights cold and flu
4. Natural anti-inflammatory
5. Promotes detoxification
6. Improves blood circulation
7. Lowers blood pressure
8. Relieves menstrual cramps
9. Helps protect against cancer
10. Helps with your metabolism.
But boy - they are spicy.
You can watch the video to see our reactions.
The shots themselves are really quite big. I feel they could do two servings worth.
Enjoy the video, like, comment & subscribe and if you have tried ginger shots, do you feel that they are useful? Do they help sickness, help your immune system, help in your over-all well being?
Let me know.
Love and peace xoxo
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
