Wendy Christien - 28 April 2022 - What Are You Putting ON Your Body?

Does what we put on our bodies matter as much as what we put in our bodies?
We all know that we need to eat healthy foods and follow a healthy lifestyle if we want to be well. Healthy food gives our bodies the nutrients and building blocks to perform optimally. If we don’t eat the right foods our bodies become inflamed, and we can develop chronic diseases.
In the same way, we need to be aware of what we apply to our bodies, what we breathe into our bodies and what gets absorbed through channels other than our digestive tracts.

Wendy Christien - 24 March 2022 - The Benefits Of Winter Fruit

Fruits are seasonal for a reason. Seasonal fruit has a higher nutritional value and is more flavorful because it has ripened naturally.

Winter fruits include apples, dates, citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and naartjies, papayas (or pawpaw’s), pineapples, and guavas.
