Why We Stopped Intermittent Fasting


We We Stopped Intermittent Fasting

Almost a year ago I wrote this post on why we only eat 2 meals a day, and it’s one of the most popular posts on our site. However, today I thought it was time for an update as our routine has changed.

That being said, we find it a lot harder to workout during the winter… even though we live in So-Cal, it’s dark in the mornings and a lot colder than in the spring and summer.

Inflammation is a hot topic right now, as it’s the root cause of so many diseases, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Strokes
  • Migraines
  • Thyroid Issues
  • Cancer

But it’s actually not the True culprit here, because inflammation is simply a concept or way of describing what is happening to the cells in our body.

Today I’m cutting right to the chase:

How do we reduce and prevent our bodies from experiencing inflammation?

I’ve been loving this smoothie so much!

I was going to put it in our Winter Recipe Bundle but Peter also created a smoothie for it, so I thought I’d share this recipe today on the blog for all to See, Make & Enjoy!

But first I wanted to take a quick second and talk about Peppermint Oil!

This has been a lifesaver when trying to cut back on sugar since the holidays.
