By Jane Barthelemy. In a healthy environment our cells are rich in oxygen, rejuvenated every night as we sleep. Optimum oxygen levels will give you more energy, enhanced brain function, and lower stress. You can overcome fatigue easily, you look and feel younger. A low oxygen environment deprives the cells of essential nutrients needed for energy to clean and rebuild. As a result our body fluids and blood can become dirty and toxic.
This recipe is inspired by an amazing day on the Adriatic coast. After teaching a Qigong workshop in Italy, I spent a few magical days in the charming beach town of Sirolo. Of course there's nothing to do but relax and eat fish! The sky and sea were calm and brilliant blue. We lounged under umbrellas all day, while the aroma of roasted garlic, olives, and the freshest fish beckoned us from the restaurant.

A healthy way to say "I love you". This sensual dessert is made with coconut, strawberries and rose water. It's very easy to prepare, Vegan and Paleo.

When a sweetener claims "natural" or "low glycemic", don't be fooled. Sugar is sugar no matter what form it's in.

Together these two sugars cause or exacerbate most of our modern chronic diseases.
