Honey makes even more beautiful
from David, the 22/05/2020
A spoon of honey a day brings to the body everything it needs. It is a very good antioxidant that contains a wealth of vitamins, enzymes and minerals vital to cleanse the body of toxins. But honey can also be used on the skin as a cleanser, a scrub or a treatment against acne. To concoct a hydrating mask, you will need raw honey (that is to say unprocessed, unpasteurized). You will spread it on your dry and clean skin and let it rest for a quarter of an hour. To make a scrub, you will take a spoon of baking soda + a spoon of honey and you rub this mixture on your wet face. So much for the little exfoliating potion. For the treatment against acne, you will only have to pour a few drops of honey on the affected areas and you will let operate for about 10 minutes.

from David, the 10/03/2020
There is always a good broth or good soup in perspective when the days or evenings are a little cool - but not only. For a vegetable soup, a slice of dried tomatoes is an excellent accompaniment: after toasting your slice of bread, brush it with fresh goat cheese, add a piece of dried tomato and sprinkle with a few drops of olive oil, you we will tell you news! For tomato soup, a green pesto sandwich is ideal, just add goat cheese or gruyere cheese and savor it! If you prefer to make originality, why not put a fresh fig with honey on your fresh goat cheese sandwich? Or, opt for smoked ham with melted cheese of course, which will enhance the taste of your soup.
With or without gluten?
from David, the 17/01/2020
With the trend "no glu", it is advisable to know the gluten-free products to which fans are entitled, so we recommend them today, so you do not get lost in the wrong lists. First, the first cereal allowed is rice, which is a very nutritious food since it represents a source of nutrients that the body needs. You can also go in these cereals that do not contain wheat or rye or barley: quinoa, corn and polenta. As far as dairy products are concerned, you will avoid flavored or lightened dairy products because they contain barley or wheat used to thicken them; also bottled milk, pasteurized or sterilized, as well as white cheeses or natural yogurts that do not contain gluten. In your diet, you will have no bad surprise in fruits and vegetables because none have, and ditto for fish, shellfish, seafood and meat; however, it will be necessary to start cooking them because the dishes prepared, them, which you buy in self-service bathe in sauces and conservatives made of cereals. So, beware!
Coffee is never too strong

Contrary to popular belief, coffee has benefits not to neglect; it is not recommended to abuse it, of course, but a cup or two or three in the day is not harmful.

from David, the 17/10/2019
Although it is less rich in calcium and fiber than almonds, cashews get a good reputation among nutritionists thanks to its mono-unsaturated fats, that is to say, beneficial for health. Clinical studies encourage a point consumption of these oleaginous fruits which are in good place to reduce the cardiovascular risks and of type 2 diabetes. It is of course necessary to obtain them in an organic grocer preferably, without salt and dry roasted and to turn away from those that are mixed with palm oil. Note that their copper, phosphorus and iron content is a very good antioxidant to protect and defend the body and thus fight against the effects of aging. Their magnesium is perfect for fighting mood swings or barbells. So, do not miss out on it: in the morning in a yoghurt or a muesli, at the four o'clock break with your apple!

It must be assumed that any food prepared in a kitchen will be invested with the energy that prevails, so always make sure that your food room is always clean. Get rid of all your outdated products lying in the bottom of your closets or your fridge because the freshness of the dishes they contain will be an important vector for the health of your home. Another important point is that the sink and your cooking plates must not cohabit next to each other because the energies of water and fire are very opposite and can create disharmony in your home: you can always arrange a separation with wood (e.g. utensils) or a green plant. Also avoid leaving sharp material because Feng-Shui is not very customer of all these forms angular or sharp. On the other hand, if the worktop is facing the door, turning the back on visitors does not propagate a climate of invitation, so you can place a mirror to cancel this effect or a sparkling casserole. Finally, a good light is a sign of good health and good mood, so be sure to make it clear and relaxing.
A good breakfast
from David, the 25/09/2019
A healthy breakfast is the one that will provide enough nutrition to spend all morning without having to nibble. For this, it is essential to favor a contribution of protein, fat and fiber. Sugar is OK, but not enough. Moderately sweet organic muesli are recommended (such as rye, buckwheat, oats) provided they are unrefined. Thanks to their fibers, they swell in the stomach, giving us a feeling of fullness while they regulate the level of fat and sugar in the blood. Opt for wholegrain bread, always richer in fiber and accompany it all with dried fruits, or a banana: they are good appetite suppressants made of antioxidants rich in fibers, too. Be aware that if you are a fan of coffee, roasted cereals are recommended because they are less aggressive on the digestive plan, as rooibos tea, by the way.
Eat a handful of almonds
from David, the 28/12/2017
The origin of the word almond comes from Latin Amandula or Greek Amigdalon which means divine gift or a rare and precious good. Just that, yes, but it's already starting to put us on the track as to its healing benefits. Almond contains magnesium, vitamin B, proteins and amino acids.
