Supplements I take regularly

I’m a strong believer in maintaining a healthy and balanced diet that offers a good variety of different nutrients. As such, I try to avoid taking supplements in general because my diet provides me with most of the nutrients I need.

But there are a few exceptions. There are currently three types of supplements that I take regularly for different reasons. Read on to find out more about these supplements and why I use them.

Discover the Health Benefits of Cherimoya Fruit

Cherimoya fruit health benefits

As you may know, I love trying out new fruits that aren’t as mainstream as, for example, apples and bananas. There are so many different types of fruits out there that we may have never heard of because we never see them popping up in our local supermarkets.

One of those not-so-well-known, exotic fruits is the delicious cherimoya fruit. While it may be relatively easy to get your hands on a cherimoya these days, it’s still one of those fruits that many of us never get to enjoy. Either because they are a bit different, or perhaps because they are too pricey.

But we are missing out! The cherimoya fruit is an absolute delight and deserves a bit more attention. Not only does this fruit have the best flavors, it also offers some amazing health benefits!

Discover the Health Benefits of Castelvetrano Olives

Castelvetrano olives health benefits

Olives are certainly not for everyone, but over the years I have learned to appreciate the flavors and health benefits of olives.

Popular in the Mediterranean diet, olives are a unique type of fruit. Unlike any other fruit, olives have a very high fat content and usually have a bitter taste. Not exactly what one would expect from a fruit!

But despite, or should I say thanks to, their high fat content, olives offer unique health benefits for everyone.

With their somewhat mild flavors, Castelvetrano olives are one of the more popular type of olives. As I recently wrote about the Kalamata olive, let’s now have a closer look at its green counterpart from Sicily, the Castelvetrano olive.

10 Healthy Organic Snacks You Should Try

Healthy organic snacks you should try

We all know that feeling in the afternoon when we start to lose focus and prefer to have a nap instead of pushing through with the day. This is typically also the moment when we start craving snacks, ideally the sugary ones.

Our brain needs a stimulus and a not-so-healthy afternoon snack often helps with that. But this is the wrong stimulus, as the excessive amount of sugar in these snacks do more harm than good.

There are other ways to help you get through the day. A well-chosen, healthy organic snack will give you the energy you need, in addition to the nutritional benefits you get to enjoy.

Mind you though, these afternoon snacks don’t necessarily need to be organic, that’s just an added bonus.

So let’s have a closer look at what Kalamata olives are all about and what health benefits they can offer us.

6 Delicious and Healthy Chocolate Smoothie Recipes

Healthy chocolate smoothie recipes

Chocolate in smoothies, really? Yes! And these smoothies can still be considered healthy and nutritious, despite chocolate being one of the ingredients.

I don’t know about you, but I love chocolate. Dark chocolate, that is. And dark chocolate actually does have some surprising health benefits, as long as you consume it in moderation.

But chocolate, or cocoa powder, in smoothies is a whole different story. It would have never occurred to me to add chocolate to my smoothies, until my neighbor offered to try it.
