3 Ways to Naturally Detox Your Body 

Hi everyone, these following tips will help to strengthen your digestive system and boost your immune system which is definitely ideal for this super cold wintery season.

1. Drink warm lemon water in the morning and throughout the day because it will help to flush out the toxins. Add cinnamon or cayenne pepper for added flavour.

2. Try dry skin brushing to support your lymphatic system (the bodies sewage system)

– use a dry brush before you have a wash
– always brush towards the heart
– begin at the feet and work your way upwards brushing in circular motions
– using circular motions over the stomach respects the direction of digestion and encourages detoxification
– afterwards have a bath or shower

3. Drinking herbal tea 🍵 (without sugar) be sure to let the tea steep for at least 5 minutes then consume hot or cold

Some teas to try:
– nettle or chamomile for inflammation
– senna, flaxseed or aloe Vera for constipation
– burdock or red clover to cleanse the blood
– milk thistle or dandelion for liver support

It’s so great to have a detox schedule that is natural and beneficial to the body, do it 4 times per year for each season to help boost the immune system 😀👍

Quick Couscous 

This is a great idea for work lunches because it’s really easy to make and so filling!! 

Instagram: angelicaa_b 👍

The couscous recipe is really delicious 😋 and actually quite healthy because I don’t use a dressing either I just add vegetables or salad:
– 35g couscous
– red cabbage
– grated carrot
– grated radish
– finely sliced spring onion
– chopped parsley
– pine nuts

The juice from the ingredients helps to keep it moist and you can add salt and pepper to taste ☺

Makes 25 small squares

100g dark chocolate
1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
125g butter

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 3 and line a shallow baking tin with parchment paper.

2. In a heat proof bowl melt the chocolate, butter and 2 tbsp water over a pan of simmering water.

3. Remove the bowl from the pan of water and leave to cool down slightly before adding the sugar, vanilla extract and eggs. Then fold in the flour and salt and pour into the baking tin.

4. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until risen but the centre should still be a little gooey. Once baked leave to cool down and cut into squares.

I even added some sprinkles on top for extra decoration.

Inversion Method For Hair Growth

Hey everyone, so this method is known to increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles which results in faster hair growth!! I would recommend using this method for no more than 2 weeks at a time to see results 😊

What to do? 

– rub oil onto your scalp
– invert your head (I hung my head between my knees)
– stay in this position for 4 minutes before slowly rising
– results should show unto 1 inch of growth after the week

*Obviously be careful when tipping your head upside down and if you begin to feel dizzy slowly rise and reduce the time.

Remember to measure your hair length before starting and don’t overuse the method because it won’t be as effective.
