Strawberry Orange Mocktail

Summer is coming! A refreshing drink on the patio is something I really enjoy.

It doesn’t always need to have alcohol in it though. ”Mocktails” or beverages that imitate cocktails but don’t contain any alcohol, have become a huge trend, especially for those seeking healthier, more natural beverages - without adding additional toxins to our system.

This Strawberry Orange Mocktail recipe is as refreshing as it is healthy, and can easily be made in just a few minutes. Impress your friends with it the next time you entertain!

Intermittent fasting 101: What is it and will it help me lose weight?

This is such a common question I have been getting lately, so I thought I would put it all down in a blog. This should help answer your questions on intermittent fasting and if it’s right for you.

In a nutshell, intermittent fasting is just that: fasting intermittently.

It's limiting calorie intake during certain hours/day or days/week. It's more of an eating pattern than a diet. It limits when to eat, and not so much what to eat. And that’s part of it’s appeal to people who don’t want to count calories or use their food log to track everything.

Some people would say that it's a more natural way to eat because humans evolved without refrigerators, drive-throughs, or 24-hour convenience stores. We now have access to food (including junk food) all day long, so eating several meals per day plus snacks may be less natural than fasting from time to time.
