Your gut is the centre point of your overall well being. Your gut flora comprises roughly 80% of your immune system, as well as regulating your metabolism, protecting you against infection and helps your digestive system function. Your gut is full of good bacteria but some times the scales can tip and your bad bacteria starts to kill off the good.
You want to make sure that your healthy bacteria always out-weighs any bad bacteria that lingers in your body. Here are 5 easy ways to give your gut a little love:
1. Increase your pre and pro-biotics
Kombucha and other fermented foods, such as sauerkraut and sour-dough bread, are rich in pro-biotics and are the best way to balance your gut bacteria. You can also take them in supplement form if fermented foods aren't for you. I drink Remedy Kombucha (half a bottle) most days and regularly supplement with products from The Beauty Chef.

Did you know that plastic never goes away? Literally every piece of plastic, big or small, that has ever been produced is still existing somewhere today. It doesn't degrade, it doesn't compost, it lives on.
Hopefully the plastic that comes in and out of your house is disposed of appropriately and recycled to become something new, but there is already too much plastic in the world and while it's great to buy recycled and recycle again, it's even better to eliminate the plastic all together.
Here are 5 simple ways that you can reduce your plastic use and create a healthier environment.

The leftovers needed to still have soft noodles, still needed to be coated in an amazing sauce and needed to not be sitting in a pool of fat but still have that signature soft slick when you're slurping up the noodles.
I call this Sexy Pad Thai because it has all the elements you look for in a Pad Thai but doesn't make you feel bloated and sluggish after eating it. It's refreshing served warm, even on a summer night, and it's delectable served chilled the next day.

I can inhale a bag of banana chips like nobodies business, give me a bag of them and I'll make them disappear. They're delicious, cheap and easy to snack on, the only downfall is that the bananas are soaked in sugar syrup for a few hours and are then deep fried. Not the healthiest snacking option. However, you can make your own banana chips with almost no effort and no added sugar, plus they still taste amazing.

Is there anything better than a warm dessert on a cold, winters night? This fragrant apple crumble is warming and delicious, you're going to want to make it again and again.
I've been reading a lot of recipes for apple pies and crumbles and the healthier alternatives all follow the same basic recipe, but I've added a few of my own little twists into this one to make it as delicious and nutritional as possible. Feel free to play around with it and see what you can come up with.

My favourite desserts all contain a delicious burst of citrus so I went on a mission to recreate my favourite lemon slice in a more nutritious way. It turns out that there are an abundance of people doing the same thing so I took a few recipes and added my own touches to create something delicious.
