April 12, 2021

Chronic inflammation is the root cause of so many diseases and ailments, ranging from acne and allergies to joint pain and eventual brain degeneration. This is why it's so important to eat foods that fight inflammation so that you can stay healthy and happy and keep diseases at bay.

This smoothie recipe is loaded with ingredients that help your body fight inflammation naturally. We used Happy Place tea in this smoothie recipe, but you can substitute Inflammation Relief Tea, Joyful Garden, Ginseng Green Dragon , or plain green tea

One of the most amazing anti-inflammatory fruits are blueberries, which are also great for keeping your brain healthy and your skin youthful-looking. Another important inflammation-fighting fruit is bananas. A study done at Appalachian State University in North Carolina showed that bananas are as effective as ibuprofen at reducing inflammation. 

The addition of turmeric and ginger make this smoothie an inflammation-fighting powerhouse. Plus, it's yummy!

2 tbsp. almond butter (you can substitute sunflower seed butter or tahini)

3 tbsp. flaxseed, ground

2 cups baby spinach

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 small 1" piece of fresh ginger root, peeled (you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder)

Hey Tea Lover: If You're Drinking Tea From A Teabag, You Might Be Consuming Thousands Of Plastic Particles With Every Cup

April 15, 2021 1 Comment

Did you know... Many tea companies sell their tea in teabags that are made with plastic? I hate to say it, but it's true. A recent study conducted in 2019 showed that many of the teabags made by some of the most popular brands contain plastic. The study showed that one teabag of tea steeped at 95C (203F) released “approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage.” This is a much higher level of plastic being ingested than what you are exposed to in other foods.
