Living a Healthier Life

As a Massage Therapist it is extremely important to keep myself healthy! These past two weeks I have been striving to eat healthier every day. Of course I had some mishaps down the road (ice cream and chocolate cake), but we all deserve a little treat now and then! I made this  salad the other night for dinner  accompanied with organic herbal lettuce, red pepper, apple, cucumber, and carrots. Of course it takes a bit of time to cut everything up but it is extremely worth it! I have been eating a salad almost everyday now for the past week. It's honestly something I crave now. I also had a bowl of hot tomato basil soup to go along with my salad... which is to die for. If for some reason you have never had it, go to the grocery store right now and get some, it'll rock your world. It is so easy to make a healthy salad or soup and the result is: Living A Healthier Life. 

Apple Cider Vinegar... This has so many benefits to your health you would think it's Heaven sent! 

Here are just a few main health benefits that come along with it: 
  • breaks down fat and is widely used to lose weight
  • a daily dose in water has high blood pressure under control in two weeks!
  • cures for allergies (including pet, food and environmental)
  • can help cure sinus infections
  • help prevent acne
  • can lower high cholesterol
  • prevents from getting the flu
  • helps relieve chronic fatigue
For daily maintenance, weight loss and pH balancing:
2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar
16 ounces of water
Sip, don't chug!

I have personally found that mixing it with apple juice is easier than water, only because straight apple cider vinegar and water can be pretty harsh! For a lesser intake of sugar I mix it with half apple juice and half water. For more information about the benefits of apple cider vinegar I would highly suggest researching it! I hope you all are taking steps everyday to: Living a Healthier Life.
