Growing food organically does not harm the surrounding community in which it’s grown. Unlike non organic practices, organics keep toxins out of the air, out of the drinking water and out of the soil. Farmers aren’t exposed to herbicides and pesticides all day; and if food is bought at the market where it’s grown, it reduces transportation costs and emissions.

To eat a healthy diet, you may need to make some changes. Remember that you can change your eating habits a little bit at a time. Small changes are easier to make and can lead to better health.
Here are some ways to make healthy changes in your eating habits:
Keep more fruits, low-fat dairy products (low-fat milk and low-fat yogurt), vegetables, and whole-grain foods at home and at work. Focus on adding healthy food to your diet, rather than just taking unhealthy foods away.
Try to eat a family meal every day at the kitchen or dining table. This will help you focus on eating healthy meals.
Buy a healthy-recipe book, and cook for yourself. Chew gum when you cook so you won't be tempted to snack on the ingredients.
Pack a healthy lunch and snacks for work. This lets you have more control over what you eat.
Put your snacks on a plate instead of eating from the package. This helps you control how much you eat.
If you ignore your feelings of hunger, you may end up eating too much or choosing an unhealthy snack. If you often feel too hungry, it can cause you to focus a lot on food.
Eat your meals with others when you can. Relax and enjoy your meals, and don't eat too fast. Try to make healthy eating a pleasure, not a chore.
Drink water instead of high-sugar drinks (including high-sugar juice drinks
Hormonal hunger is real 😜 Do you feel me?
It’s totally normal and biological to feel more hungry during your premenstrual cycle. I know I’ve been there! As levels of estrogen go down, levels of the stress hormone, cortisol rise. This in turn lowers levels of serotonin which cause us to crave more carbs & fats like sweets and chocolate bars.
While it’s totally normal to treat yourself a bit more during your menstrual cycle (I know I do!), here are some other solutions that aren’t just food based:
Drink plenty of water! - Water helps flush out the body and reduce bloating.
Do gentle exercise - If you’re not feeling something more intense, even yoga or a long walk can do the body good & reduce stress levels.
Meditate - Mediation can help reduce overall stress levels.
Take a candle lit epsom salt bath - Another easy self-care routine that can leave you feeling refreshed.
Add magnesium supplementation - Lower magnesium levels have been linked to women who suffer from more PMS symptoms. A good magnesium spray can help reduce severe PMS symptoms.
Be kind to yourself - Everyone’s PMS experience is different so don’t be too hard on yourself and embrace the process xoxo
This was my second go at these PALEO SWEET POTATO PUMPKIN #doughnuts ! I ate the last one up a couple days ago, and it’s been rough since then 😉 this is from @paleoglutenfreeeats, with a few minor adaptations! 10/10 recommend trying.
Doughnut ingredients: makes 6!
-1 small white or regular sweet potato (I made two batches one with each and thought they were pretty similar)
-1/4 cup coconut flour
-1/4 cup coconut sugar
-2 tbsp arrowroot flour
-2 tbsp maple syrup
-2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- *optional* a couple tbsp filtered water to thin batter if need be
-2 large eggs
-1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1/4 tsp cardamom powder
-pinch of cayenne powder
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-1/2 cup coconut manna (I used @nutiva brand)
-1/4 cup maple syrup
-2-3 tbsp boiling filtered water (Yes. Must be boiling, otherwise it won’t mix in well. Yes, I know that because I too questioned if it needed to be boiling)
-1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (here’s a great opportunity to get yourself a real, whole nutmeg and grate it fresh 🤗)
-a couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice and cardamom
-1/8-1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F. GENEROUSLY, seriously, generouslyyyyy, grease a donut pan (I got mine off @amazon) with coconut oil (use refined coconut oil if you’re bothered or worried about coconut flavor). Dice sweet potato into chunks then throw in food processor to mince (potato raw and with the skin on is fine). Once it’s been minced, then add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until batter forms. Then, get yourself an old ziplock plastic bag, scoop the batter into the bag, and then cut the tip off one of the corners. Pipe the batter into the donut mold. Bake for 30 mins or so until toothpick comes out clean. Take out and cool a bit before unmolding them (helps to take them out while they’re still warm). While they’re cooling, make the glaze. Heat the coconut manna by putting it in a hot water bath or microwaving it, then add it with the rest of the ingredients to a bowl, mix and drizzle as desired.
Seven essential freelancing tips from people who are making it work
We've busted some myths about being your own boss with the help of some young freelancers. Now, they give us their top tips on working for yourself.
1. Can I get that in writing?
When negotiating contracts and rates of pay with a client, it’s good professional practice to get the information in writing or in an email. Take your time to read and agree on the terms, and keep them for future reference when you’re invoicing for your work.
2. Own transport, own tech
Having a driving licence or your own transport can be useful if you need to travel to meet clients. Similarly, having your own laptop or the additional tech you need for your job also makes you more flexible and hireable.
3. Get disciplined – get a routine
You have sole responsibility for finding and securing your own work, and finishing it to the satisfaction of your client. If you are self- disciplined and create a regular routine of working hours, you will find it easier to be efficient and keep those jobs rolling in!
4. Lonely? Find a co-working space
If you are working on a project from home and would prefer an office setting, you may be able to find cool co-working spaces online near you. Alternatively, head to a local café or library to get the feeling of working around other people. Work out what kind of set-up you prefer.
If the thought of it makes you want to hide under a rock, you’re not alone, but according to other freelancers it does get easier! Networking is an important way to find potential new clients and people to work with.
6. Get legal and financial advice
Doing your own tax return can be painful, but websites like gov.co.uk can offer guidance. If you’re a freelancer, research your legal rights online – for example, to make sure you are insured properly.
7. Know your red lines
If you’re just getting started, you want to make sure you’re paid at least minimum wage (which will rise to £8.21 in April 2019) for your work. So figure out how many hours it will take you to complete the job and divide the overall budget or payment you are getting between them.
I’m in this for the long haul. ⠀
I may not exercise every single day or eat clean 100% of the time, but that’s because it’s unrealistic for me. ⠀
I want this to be a lifestyle that I can keep up with. ⠀
I don’t want to burn out from setting unrealistic expectations. ⠀
I don’t want to feel defeated because I’m not perfect. ⠀
I need it to be a sustainable lifestyle. ⠀
I show up for myself in some way.
Exercising most days between 20-60 minutes. ⠀
Eating clean 80% of the time. ⠀
Enjoying treats, comfort food, wine, and an occasional craft beer the other times. ⠀
My clients are similar: they work out most days. Not for hours at a time. Not in a gym while paying for childcare. ⠀
They eat healthy and still enjoy times out at restaurants or a drink with family or friends. ⠀
I’m not going to ask you to give up everything. ⠀
I’m asking you to make small tweaks, add in new habits, replace some other habits, and as you do this over time, you’ll stand back and be amazed at how far you’ve come in 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, a year. ⠀
I don’t want to be thin for an event or a beach. ⠀
I want to be healthy and strong for life. ⠀
How about you? ❤️
