With the recent humid weather here in Marbella, I hear a lot of clients tell me that they have no energy and feel fatigued, that the weather has drained them and they feel tired all the time.

Golden Milk is an ancient Ayurvedic drink made using turmeric and milk – and it’s one of the best ways I know to incorporate turmeric into one’s daily diet. Turmeric is known to have so many health benefits due to curcumin, a powerful polyphenol antioxidant that also gives turmeric its beautiful golden colour. Drinking it just before bed is a wonderful way to relax and helps boost the immune system while sleeping or you may prefer to enjoy it first thing in the morning or even drink it in place of coffee. SO why is it so good for us?…

When it comes to proteins, the foods that come to mind are meats, fish, eggs, dairy like milk, cheese and poultry, all of which are animal based. This is the reason that people are often skeptic about vegetarian diets such as the vegetarian GM diet and doubt whether it can properly sustain the body for its proper functioning. It is here that this power grain- Quinoa comes in to play. It is one of the ancient grains like amaranth and barley that have remained almost unchanged for thousands of years.

Here’s the thing though – some weight gain or stagnation is to be expected when you start a new exercise program, and I want to explain why this happens…
