We all know that consuming fruits and vegetables on a daily basis plays an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Despite being aware of this, many find it challenging and time-consuming to incorporate them into their diet.
Luckily, there are ways to get those healthy nutrients without having to cook elaborate dishes or carry a lunchbox filled with fruit and vegetables everywhere you go.
While meat is typically high in protein, there are in fact lots of vegetarian and also vegan protein sources as well. Green smoothies are an excellent way to get extra protein in, sourced from vegetables and other non-meat foods.

Did you know that tea is the second most popular drink after water? I personally love my cup of tea in the afternoon as it helps me to stay focused when I’m working. Tea has delicious flavors and just about the right amount of caffeine to refresh my brain when I need it most.
Each with their own distinct flavors, I enjoy drinking white tea, green tea as well as black tea. Let’s have a look at what the differences are between these three types of tea and which one offers the best health benefits.
It’s no surprise that kale has slowly become the go-to ingredient for green smoothies, juices and shakes. Perhaps a bit too much hyped up as a super food, kale does actually have some amazing and unique health benefits.
But unless you have a powerful blender at home, such as a Blendtec or a Vitamix, kale is not always the easiest of ingredients to blend into a delicious smoothie.
On top of a healthy diet, the benefits of exercise are endless. The way that our human bodies have evolved simply favors movement, and it seems to be our natural way of being. We know that this ideal is far from our everyday reality, however. Most of us have to sit in the office for several hours everyday, tempting us to get our hands on yummy treats.
We often hear how important calcium is for our teeth and bones and that deficiency in this mineral can be a dangerous health concern.
While severe calcium deficiency is relatively uncommon in our modern day society, the market for calcium supplements is huge. Are dietary supplements really all that necessary, or should we be making changes to our diet instead?
The best way to learn more about the fascinating and complex world of nutrition is by reading books. Over the years, I’ve read lots of nutrition books to get a deeper understanding of all aspects related to nutrition, and each time I finish a book I have learned new things.
Understanding what you should and shouldn’t eat is crucial to good health. Knowing how different foods affect your body and how it functions will make it much easier for you to make the right decisions when it comes to nutrition.
When I started my blog Healthy Food Tribe years ago, I simply wanted to share my thoughts on nutrition with other like-minded people. I had little technical understanding of the Internet and I was very far from making any form of money with my blog. But what started as a hobby slowly grew in a part-time job that generates a modest side-income. Readers, friends and family now often ask me how to start a food blog like Healthy Food Tribe.
If you usually need a bit of time in the morning to really wake up, don’t worry, you’re not alone. And that first cup of coffee just can’t come soon enough!
I’ve been replacing coffee with nutritious and energizing juices and green smoothies in the mornings, and while it wasn’t easy in the beginning (I was a serious coffee addict!), my body and mind are now very much used to it.
It now feels great to start the day with a glass filled with healthy nutrients giving me an instant energy boost that lasts for hours. And coffee? I still love it, especially on a lazy Sunday morning, but nothing beats starting my workday with a fresh juice.
Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals, yet so many people have some level of deficiency in this particular mineral. Are magnesium supplements the solution to this problem, or should we be making changes to our daily diet?
There are lots of different types of magnesium supplements available, each with their own benefits which can be quite confusing. Let’s have a look at the best magnesium supplements available to help you work out which ones are suitable for you.
