Chlorophyll is the the pigment found in plants that makes them green and has only recently become trendy. However, we found that many say their grandmothers would swear by the green water to help heal ailments. Stomach ache? Chlorophyll. Headache? Chlorophyll. We recently tried the Sakara Life Detox Water Concentrate with infused chlorophyll and found ourselves wondering, whether or not it really works and how. We spoke with Whitney Tingle, the Co-Founder of Sakara Life, to get the breakdown behind this magical green water and here’s what you need to know.
Each time I go to Trader Joe's I find new thing I must try. As a gluten-free, vegan, they have so many options for me at great prices. I've been posting my hauls on InstaStories and have many of you asking about my shopping list so here's info on what I buy every single time.
A month or so ago, I attended a summit by the Global Wellness Institute where the medicinal properties of mushrooms was a super hot topic. Turns out, research is being done to prove that magic mushrooms could be “better than existing treatments” for anxiety, depression and addiction.

The food is that good.

Once you find out your dosha type, I'd encourage you to take her up on her advice!
This summer during a visit to Canyon Ranch, I met with a nutritionist who introduced me to the idea of eating for your dosha type. As a yogi, I was famliar with my dosha type (Vata-Pitta) and the chacteristics, but never really looked into lifestyle decisions I should be making because of it. Now, I practice living according to the needs of my dosha type in order to feel my best. Here's why.
The holidays are clearly the hardest time of year to eat clean. Dinner parties often don't provide a ton of healthy options (Finger foods? I'll pass.) and martinis tend to go down like water (for me, anyway). Here's a juice recipe that I've tried by Dr. Taz that'll help to quickly reduce bloating so you can continue to party on without feeling gross.
