Intermittent Fasting

While many cultures integrate fasting into their routine as part of their religion, we all know that using fasting as a weight-loss technique is rarely successful in the long term. Intermittent Fasting, on the contrary, has gain popularity in the wellness circles in recent years. Intermittent fasting is thought to promote stronger insulin sensitivity and increased growth hormone secretion, two keys for weight loss and muscle gain. Learn how the Intermittent Fasting approach works to stimulate a healthier body well-being.

Seaweed has both anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. Besides having high iron content and a favorite delicacy for consumption, its hydrating qualities are also great to apply topically to the skin. Local entrepreneur Diane Bernard has been hand-harvesting seaweed from BC’s coast and has turned it into an organic skincare line called Seaflora.

Nigella Sativa or Black Seed Oil.

This ancient seed is a relative of the cumin or coriander plant. The black seeds are pressed and the oil is used to treat almost everything from allergies, eczema, digestive problems, and more. Just take a teaspoon or two each day to benefit from its phytochemicals.

Ketosis and Personalized Food

Eating well is a personal journey. More people than ever, for example, are going vegan. The number of vegans has risen by 360% over the past decade and is expected to continue to soar in 2018. On the other side of the spectrum, Ketogenic diets that emphasize protein and fat (you can still be vegetarian and even vegan on a Keto diet) are also growing in popularity. These diets are low-carb, low-sugar, and focus on satiety. Many people report better weight loss, more muscle gain and better energy on these types of keto diets. And because figuring out the right carb/protein/fat ratio can be tricky, many people are subscribing to personalized meal delivery services like Eat Your Cake (vegan, vegetarian and Keto) and meal prep delivery services like Fresh Prep, who deliver everything you need to create a healthy meal in under 30 minutes.
