    Tips For a Wholesome Travel

    One of our hobbies is travelling and we go on trips a few times a year. We love to explore new places with their local history, get to experience different cultures, traditions and ways of thinking, and most of all, we value the family time we get from travelling.

    Main spices and herbs I always keep in my pantry

    Every time I am cooking, I think about the herbs and spices I want to add to the dish. I imagine the taste I want to get in the end and I begin to combine and season to taste.

    When my clients consult me on what foods they should eat, I always tell them: whole, seasonal, natural and organic. I always insist on being organic. The reason why is that foods that have been grown and produced organically have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts. The non-ingestion of chemicals and preservatives helps lessen, even make disappear, symptoms that people with allergies, intolerances or sensitivities to food have. It also helps reduce the hard work the liver performs of metabolizing and eliminating these substances. And last but not least, just as these two aspects of organic consumption – decreased intake of contaminants and increased intake of…
