The easy way to END SUGAR CRAVINGS

If you’re like most women, cold weather means more cravings for sweet, sugary foods. The easy fix that’ll reset your appetite: fermented foods. That’s because sauerkraut, kombucha, miso paste and other fermented foods contain probiotic bacteria that colonize the gut, where they release compounds that dial down the brain’s desire for sugar and carbs. Not only that, the bacteria also release compounds that help you digest sugar to stave off bloat, headaches and other not-so-sweet side effects. All it takes is 2Tbs. daily to get the benefits!

An amazing source of probiotics that I would highly recommend is UNI KEY Health’s Flora-Key probiotic supplement. A quick and simple way to get some extra probiotics in your daily routine.

    I had no idea that fermented foods did this. I’m going to start incuding them in my diet. Also I will be ordering the Flora-Key

  2. Gail

    I love sauerkraut and will eat it more often. Didn’t know how good it is!

  3. Sally

    I haven’t heard of miso paste but I do drink Kombucha.

    How does miso retain its probiotic properties when heated into a soup or broth? What is the best way to eat miso and get all the good fermented properties?

  5. TeamRM

    You want to add the miso at the end of making the soup, after removing it from the heat, to help it retain the probiotic properties.

The wardrobe tweak to FEEL YOUR BEST

One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.

Do this before getting out of bed to BLOCK PAIN ALL DAY

Take a cue from your cat and wake up with a slow, luxurious stretch. Our muscles are surrounded by a thin sheath of tissue called fascia. When that tissue is tight, we feel sore. To prevent discomfort from head to toe, start by flexing your arms and legs, then gently roll from side to side before sitting up. Finally, flex and bend your feet before standing to release tight fascia in your calves and ankles. If any spot feels sore, press it for 20 seconds until the fascia softens and releases.

Delicious way to FIRE UP METABOLISM

Ever wish there were a tasty treat that could actually speed weight loss? There is! Studies suggest that enjoying a handful of macadamia nuts every day (compared to eating no nuts) can reduce weight gain by 77%! Plus, it shrinks fat cells. The reason? Macadamias are a great source of adiponectin, a hormone that helps turn off hunger. And a small amount does the trick: To get the benefits, snack on a dozen nuts each day, or cook with 2 Tbs. of rich-tasting macadamia nut oil, which is great for stir-frying or drizzling over popcorn.


When you’re out and about, try trading your rubber-or plastic- soled shoes for a pair with soft leather soles. Breathable leather allows your body to absorb the earth’s negatively charged ions – enough to slash the body’s production of pain-causing inflammation by a whopping 227%! Plus, these ions help neutralize the free radicals that promote weight gain, cardiovascular disease, and insomnia. Live someplace warm? Get the benefits by walking barefoot on soil, grass, or sand.

The simple trick to FEEL LIKE A KID AGAIN

Youthful energy and immunity hinge on optimal gut function. But for millions of women, healthy gut bacteria are crowded out by harmful microbes. And taking a probiotic often isn’t enough. What does help? A combination of probiotics and prebiotics (like inulin, which “feeds” probiotics). This has been shown to dramatically improve gut health to boost digestion, energy, immunity and more. I advise adding one scoop of Flora-Key powder, which has both pre – and probiotics, to a smoothie or tea. For 15% off, use code floraww15 at
