Top 10 High Antioxidant Foods

Antioxidants are substances that help prevent certain types of cell damage, especially those caused by oxidation. When certain types of oxygen molecules are allowed to travel freely in the body they cause what is known as oxidative damage which is the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are very dangerous to the body’s tissues and have been connected to cancer and premature aging. The body uses antioxidants to prevent itself from the damage caused by oxygen. Oxidative damage plays a major role in disease today and has been linked to health conditions like heart disease, cancer and dementia. Some of the benefits of consuming antioxidant rich foods include: Slower agingHealthy glowing skinReduced cancer riskDetoxification supportLonger life span Most fruits, vegetables, and herbs contain antioxidants such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, flavanoids and lycopene.

Food Matters 3 Day Detox Cleanse-January 9th

Dry Skin BrushingDry skin brushing is another economical and easy way to detoxify. Dead skin cells are sloughed away, the lymphatic and immune systems are stimulated while toxin harboring cellulite is reduced. 
A wide, long-handled natural bristle brush is all that’s needed. Begin with dry skin and brush in upward strokes toward the heart. The feet are a good place to start. Brush the legs, arms, back and abdomen. It takes only 5-10 minutes to brush the entire body. Make sure to enjoy a hot shower afterwards, drink a big glass of water and breathe deeply. Your happily purified body will thank you.

5 Simple Tricks to Ensure Your New Year’s Eve Makeup Lasts the Night

Photo: ImaxTree The excitement of the evening may very well have worn off by the time the clock strikes twelve, but there’s one thing that shouldn’t—your makeup. Although New Year’s Eve is one of the longest nights of the year (well, it certainly feels like it is), that doesn’t mean you should spend half the night in the bathroom doing touch-ups. Apply your New Year’s Eve makeup right the first time, and you can save room in your clutch for the important stuff, like those tacky 2015 glasses. Below, find tips to prevent makeup’s worst offenders. Droopy Lashes“When applying mascara, make sure that you’re not only coating the lashes, but pressing the wand into the base as well,” says Ami Shvartzman, the Director of Education for Osmosis Skincare & Colour Cosmetics. “This will ensure that your fringe has a slight curvature and that your lashes will stand up to their full potential, pun intended.” Look for a wand with stiff bristles, like Osmosis Defining Mascara.

RIPPED Rep Challenge #2 by DailyHIIT

Ripped Rep #2 Posted by Krissy Moore
Ready for another Rep challenge? I was so beat after the last one I created that you can see here, I decided to make another! Like the last one, complete 10 reps of each exercise before moving on to the next with NO rest in between. After you have finished the 10 reps of all 8 exercises, rest between 30-60 seconds and start the next round. Shoot for 5-10x thru. I used 15 pound dumbbells for the weights and completed 10 rounds in 44 minutes (this includes taking 30 seconds rest in between each round). Five rounds took me 21 minutes! Keep your form spot on, and only rest during the round if you absolutely have to. RIPPED Rep Challenge #2  1) Switch Jump Lunges
2) Plank Row/Push ups
3) Double Mt. Climbers
4) Sumo Squat with Bicep Curl
5) Alternating Side Squat Thrust
6) Clean Press
7) 2 Jump Squats + 1 Sumo Jump Squat
8) Ab Switch Kicks (on ground) See below for examples of all the above exercises if needed!

MY REVIEW:Nutrient Wise Pure Raspberry Ketone


Product Description
Raspberry Ketone is a natural phenolic compound that is responsible for the heavenly aroma of red raspberries and is the fastest growing dietary product in the world. We have been attracted to raspberries for many years because of their vibrant colour and sweet and tangy taste. Nutritionists are learning that these exciting fruits also contain ketones and believe that they are as healthy and beneficial to the body as they are delicious. Dr Oz who is a cardiac surgeon, author and Daytime Emmy-winning host of The USA Dr Oz Show identified Raspberry Ketone to be "The number one miracle in a bottle" during one of his famous shows. Manufactured in the USA.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement take 1 capsule twice a day. For best results take 20-30 minutes before a meal or as directed by your physician.


I love the Raspberry Ketones. And that they help curb your appetite. Especially during the holidays. Because me I am so guilty over indulging on…
