Thinking about keeping your holiday season a little bit healthier?

Well, look no further. Here’s a few of our best tips for making the holidays healthier…

It’s well-documented that Christmas is a time for indulgence, but the parties, sweet treats and merriment can be a real struggle if you’re trying to stay healthy. Well, they don’t have to be. There are plenty of small swaps and changes that you can make to your usual holiday traditions to help you stay on track.

Use less fat in your Christmas roast 🍗
This one is quite self-explanatory: cut your usage of oil and butter. Although it’s easy to find recipes for roasted vegetables and extravagant buttery sprouts at this time of year, the healthiest way to cook your vegetables is to boil them. Chances are, you’re not going to notice that missing butter anyway once you’ve covered them in gravy.

Replace Christmas sweets with Christmas fruit 🍓
We’ve all been there – as the days of advent slowly count down, the boxes of sweets pile up. It becomes easy to graze on food simply because it’s there in front of us. So, why not swap the chocolate for a healthier sweet treat? Fill your fancy bowls with dried cranberries for a natural dose of sugary goodness and we can guarantee you’ll feel a lot better about those little overindulgences.

Snack before you arrive at the party🎉
Let’s face it, party food is generally not healthy food. But that feeling of dismay when you arrive at the beige buffet can be avoided if you grab yourself a healthy snack before you set off. It’s much easier to control what you’re eating when you’ve prepared it yourself and you’ll have no problem turning down the canapes and crisps at the party if you’re already well-fed.

Use less salt in your food🧂
Excessive amounts of salt in your diet can increase your blood pressure. As salt is one of the main seasonings we use in our food, this can seem like a challenge. The best way to reduce your salt intake is to substitute it with other herbs and spices. These will give plenty of flavour to your food without you needing to reach for the salt shaker.

Skip the indulgent coffee and cake combos🍰
Next time you’re contemplating purchasing that sugary cake and festive hot drink from a high street coffee shop, consider swapping both for a warm cup of chocolate Forever Lite Ultra. Simply mix one scoop with your favourite hot milk or water and enjoy. It’s filling enough to stop the hunger pangs, luxuriously chocolatey enough to replace the festive drink, and it’s the perfect cosy treat for those long winter evenings.

Get out and about🚶
When it’s cold and dark outside and oh-so-cosy inside, it can be very tempting to while away the hours just lazing on the sofa. However, it’s important to get some fresh air and exercise, not just for your physical health, but your mental health as well. Why not suggest a festive walk to the family or even offer to walk the neighbour’s dog? Your body and your mind will thank you.

Get some rest😴
It can be hard to get your full seven to eight hours sleep every night anyway, but it gets even harder over the festive period. With parties to attend, presents to wrap and preparations for the big day, often sleep can take a back seat. However, getting enough sleep is essential to help you fully recuperate from all the action. Lack of sleep over a prolonged period can also disrupt your immune system, leaving you less able to fend off colds and flu. So, make sure you take some time out to get some ZZZ’s in.

The festive season is a time to celebrate, not a time to deny yourself all the yummy treats and indulgences that everyone else is enjoying. That’s why small changes are the key. If you make a few of these small changes, you’ll find the holidays a breeze.

One of the most powerful plants – You’ve probably heard of Reishi?

You’ve probably heard of Reishi?
It’s one of those herbs that seems to be on everyone’s list of favourites!
Dr George Lamoureux, (Founder of Jing Herbs) credits Reishi with helping him feel ‘peaceful, centred’, and helping him to transform his ‘terrible temper’ and ‘Rageaholic’ tendencies…
Ron Teeguarden (Author of ‘The Ancient Wisdom of the Taoist Tonic Herbs’) calls Reishi ‘One of the Greatest Tonic Herbs On Earth.’
The Ancient Taoist Literature reveres Reishi as a ‘Superior Tonic!’…
And gives it names like: ‘The King of the Mushrooms’… ‘The Great Protector’… ‘The Mushroom of Spiritual Potency’ and, my personal favourite: ‘The Herb of Good Fortune!’
The book ‘Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects’ describes Reishi as having:
‘A combination of spiritual potency and essence of immortality … it’s tied to success, well-being, divine power, and longevity.’
It’s safe to say that Reishi has some pretty astounding qualities:
Long revered in Asia as a Tonic Herb for Radiant Health, Longevity and Spiritual Attainment; due to its fabled ability to promote Centering, Grounding, Calm and Clarity…
During the past few decades, many different studies (in Japan, China, the U.S. and the U.K) have demonstrated that Reishi has the potential to offer protection against a variety of diseases and illnesses as well because it contains:
‘A wide variety of bioactive molecules, such as terpenoids, steroids, phenols, nucleotides and their derivatives, glycoproteins, and polysaccharides.
Mushroom proteins contain all the essential amino acids and are especially rich in Leucine and Lysine’…..(Lysine being the most important amino acid for your immune system, and one that’s commonly deficient in vegetarians.)
Examples of issues that Reishi has been shown to benefit include:
Anxiety & Depression
Inflammation (due to containing Ganoderic Acids, which are potent antioxidant free-radical scavengers)
Fatigue (because it improves oxygen utilization)
Liver disease (because Ganoderic Acids help improve liver function)
Food intolerances & Asthma (because Ganoderic Acids inhibit histamine release)
Digestive problems
Fungal Infections (High levels of Triterpenes give Reishi the ability to protect against microbial infections, viruses, and fungal infections)
Skin disorders
Sleep disorders
Frequent infections (Reishi stimulates the production of interferon and interleukins I and II, which are potent natural immunity-boosting substances produced in the body)
Diabetes
Viruses (Polysaccharides play an important role in strengthening the body’s overall immune functions)
Heart disease, Hypertension, High Blood Pressure & High Cholesterol
From a Traditional Taoist perspective; Reishi is considered to work on all ‘3 Treasures’:
Your ‘Chi’ (Daily Energy)
Your ‘Jing’ (Your Energy Reserves)
Your ‘Shen’ (Your Spirit and Sense of Harmony)
All of which means that Reishi is a very adaptable herb (an ‘Adaptogen’), that can help you get the best out of life on many, many levels!
I know this may seem almost too good to be true, so …
I’ve always said that the best way to get to know a Tonic Herb…
Is to try it yourself and develop your own unique relationship each herb…
And if you’re interested in doing this, Reishi is a perfect place to start 🙂
Because in addition to its very many benefits, Reishi is also an Extremely Safe Herb!
Reishi mushrooms have been used for thousands of years, and amazingly, very few side effects have ever been recorded.
In Fact:
In a report from the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia; Reishi is classified as: ‘A Class 1: Herbs that can be safely consumed when used appropriately.’
So, unless you have a mushroom intolerance, are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a medical condition (in which case, only use Reishi under the supervision of a Medical professional), Reishi is a fantastic way to start, or to deepen, your relationships with Tonic Herbs!
