The Superfoods Way with One Hungry Mami

Share your blogging journey with us. When did it begin and why did you decide to start?

My blog began in July 2012, and it came after a rather big and indulgent trip to the States.  I decided on my return that I would try a purely plant based diet for 12 weeks.  So, 1 month before my 34th birthday, I did it.  I remember telling people about it and someone suggested I should write about my experience.  That's when the blog was born.  It was a really good way of keeping myself accountable, sharing recipes I came up with a long the way and documenting what changes, physical or mental, that I undertook as a result.  My journey is still going and a lot has happened so the blog has evolved to reflect that, and will hopefully continue as long as I'm around.

Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?  

It's cliche but I'm truly passionate about my family and friends.  I think in today's world, it's easy to get caught up in the superficial but when it all comes down to it, you have nothing if you don't have anyone around you to share it with.

What is your daily health, wellness and fitness routine?

I used to be really regimented and would try to do all the right things, but now I take a more relaxed approach and realise that every day is different so your body and mind requirements are going to reflect that.  My non-negotiables are daily meditation, fresh homemade food, a superfood smoothie, kissing my family, and moving my body for an hour each day.  I love exercise, it's a natural stress reliever and mood elevator so apart from keeping me fit, it also keeps me mentally well.  I love to run, it's just another form of meditation in my opinion.  I balance that with resistance training using my own body and light weights.  Rest is also important so getting a day to do just that is a priority, and this includes taking a break from technology too.

What’s your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day? 

As a nurse, I do shift work, mainly the late shift so I really love a good smoothie, specially around the 3 pm mark when my body is craving an energy injection.  It beats coffee and keeps me going until dinner time so I'm not munching mindlessly on unhealthy foods.  My favourite is a green smoothie made from baby spinach, cucumber, celery, green apple, lemon juice, coconut water, avocado and 1 tsp of the Nature's Way Flavoured Spirulina.  It's really low sugar but tastes amazing thanks to the spirulina powder.   For more info or to follow One Hungry Mami, click here.

Superfoods for Healthy Joints

Superfoods for Healthy Joints

Natural joint health supplements like krill oil and glucosamine have well documented benefits for supporting healthy joints, and pharmaceutical / prescription drugs can be obtained from your doctor to help with arthritis and joint pain. However, your lifestyle and the food you eat  can also have a significant effect on joint health. Try these superfoods for arthritis and maintaining joint health.

CAMU CAMU

A fine powder derived from an Amazonian fruit, Camu Camu has impressive antioxidant properties and can be a great anti-inflammatory. Anti-inflammatories cab be beneficial for arthritis sufferers, as the joint pain felt is often the result of swelling and  inflammation around the joint. Reducing inflammation, therefore, often means reducing pain. Further, Camu Camu is rich in vitamin C – vitamin C is critical for a number of bodily functions including production of collagen. Collagen is required for growing, healing and repairing tissue and cartilage.

CHIA SEEDS

Chia Seeds are rich in fibre, protein and – importantly – omega-3 fatty acids. Ensuring you have sufficient intake of Omega-3s is important for joints and the link between omega-3 intake and joint health is documented. If you aren’t eating fatty fish such as salmon or tuna 3 times a week, you should be trying to increase your daily omega-3 intake by:
  1. taking a Krill Oil tablet daily or
  2. including vegetable sources of omega-3 like chia seeds into your diet. Need some inspiration on how  to eat more chia? Check out our Chia Seed recipes.

TURMERIC

You may be familiar with turmeric as a spice used in curries and stir fries. You may not realise that it is actually a superfood that contains a potent anti-inflammatory ingredient called curcumin. Adding enough turmeric to your meals each day to achieve the full anti-inflammatory effect might not be feasible, but there are an increasing number of juice bars around that offer turmeric in their products that can help you increase your turmeric / curcumin intake. Alternatively, try Osteo Flex – it contains clinically studied levels of curcumin so you can be sure you are getting sufficient dosage. It also contains additional joint care ingredients Krill Oil and Green Lipped Mussel.   ---------- This article was provided by our online partner Health365.

The Superfoods Way with Miann Scanlan

 Share your blogging journey with us. When did it began and why did you decide to start?

I started blogging back in 2009 back when there were only a small hand full of Australian fashion blogs. I've always been a wordsmith at heart, and growing up reading Vogue instead of children's books instilled in me the keen desire to share with my peers the magic and fantasy I found within the fashion industry.

Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?

I'm passionate about being happy. Living to fulfil my desire to feel deep peace. My life now revolves around the world outside my window and the ocean below my balcony where before it revolved around work and impressing my colleagues with the number of hours I could clock at my desk in a week.

What is your daily health, wellness and/or fitness routine?

Travelling so much it's hard for me to truly find a routine, but I try and manage a few non-negotiables wherever I am in the world. First it starts with a fast walk in the morning, bonus if it's timed with the sunrise! I also start the mornings with a hot herbal tea, or honey lemon & ginger if I'm at home. The last non-negotiable is having 2-3 litres of water a day. I believe when you're properly hydrated, it's much easier to make healthy choices.

What's your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day?

 I love throwing them in the blender with coconut water and bananas - it couldn't be easier! For more info on Miann Scanlan - click here.

3 Tasty Superfood Recipes for Stress Support

A critical element of dealing with stress is living a healthy, active lifestyle. Putting the wrong foods in your body, or using cigarettes, alcohol or drugs to help you deal with stress only makes the problem worse. Regular exercise, abstaining from ingesting toxins and eating a range of healthy foods provides a solid platform for surviving stressful times. Try the below 3 stress-busting recipes from our Nature's Way SuperFoods Recipe hub.  

1. Maca Guaca

Maca provides a range of benefits, not the least of which is nutritional support during times of stress. Maca is a class of nutrient called an 'adaptogen'. Adaptogens are natural products that are considered to support the body during times of high stress and exertion. Maca provides key nutrients to help with mood, stress and relaxation. Furthermore, the avocado in this superfood guacamole recipe is rich in B Vitamins. Your body has an increased demand for B vitamins during times of prolonged stress. Try the Maca Guaca recipe now.  

2. Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters

Created by Scott Gooding and Luke Hines, you won't believe the Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters recipe is healthy! The recipe uses chia seeds, which are rich in B Vitamins (which we have already covered as being critical during times of stress). It also contains cacao, which is high in magnesium. Magnesium is critical for relaxation and muscle function... lack of magnesium can leave you restless, anxious and agitated. Finally, the recipe also contains almonds. Almonds are rich in vitamin E, which fights the free radicals associated with stress. Try our Chia Cacao Coconut Clusters Recipe now.  

3. Brain Booster Smoothie

This smoothie contains acai, which is rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C  can help reduce the physical and psychological effects of stress. Further, the recipe contains coconut water. Preliminary research suggests coconut may be beneficial for brain health and mental function. Try the Brain Booster Smoothie now. ---------- This article was bought to you by our online partner, Health365. To buy superfoods online, visit www.health365.com.au/shop
