Getting jacked at the gym but dislike having to deal with the sore muscles?

Here are a few easy tips and tricks that can help prevent sore muscles without having to continuously take anti-inflammatory drugs:

1. Drink tart cherry juice – Sipping this antioxidant rich beverage can lessen muscle aches and amp up recovery.

2. Soak in epsom salts – A warm bath with 2 cups of these relaxing salts is the ideal at-home remey for soothing tight muscles.

3. Relax with massage – All that gentle kneading will reduce muscle inflammation.

Getting the “Winter’s on it’s way” Blues?

Here are a couple simple and yummy things you can do to help fight feeling down just before and during the winter.


1. Eat Salmon – A whopping 90 percent of women will have a Vitamin D deficiency during fall and winter. Yes, 90%, 9 out of 10!! Salmon is packed full of Vitamin D and Omega 3’s that boost the vitamin’s absorption by 50% and help keep away the winter and fall blues.


2. Eat Nuts – Specifically Macadamia nuts, due to lack of exposure to the sun our natural anti-depressant hormone serotonin levels drop during fall and winter. Just 2 ounces or Macadamias a day contain enough tryptophan to stimulate serotonin production leaving you feeling happy and healthy within days!!
