Surviving the Holidays the #ONatural way!


This is one of my favourites time of the year.  I love to entertain and have friends over for delicious food and cocktails.  I am going to share with you a brilliant smoothie that has some holiday punch in it.  It is so refreshing and loaded with healthy minerals and vitamins from Orange Naturals ND Shake Vanilla you’ll be ready to take on the season with less stress and thanks to the Peppermint tincture as it will leave you feeling refreshed.  It combines a professionally formulated women’s multivitamin with a blend of 18g plant protein, greens, superfruits and fibre, plus nutrients specific to women’s health such as cinnamon for blood sugar balance, calcium for bone health and cranberry for a healthy urinary tract.  

The After Eight Smoothie- Julie Danyluck {Slimming Meals that Heal}

2 cups of unsweetened coconut beverage (2% fat)
2 tsp nut or seed butter
1 tbsp of raw cocoa ( I love Soma cocoa or organic Green & Blacks )
1 1/2 tbsp raw honey
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract (Orange Naturals)
1-2 tbsp hemp seeds

Place all in blender and blend until smooth.  This is delcious and very much in theme with the Holidays thanks to the Peppermint.

Another great beverage to keep you healthy during the holidays is the new Mag Pop from Orange Naturals.  Great for after a work out and just an amazing boost; magnesium is one of the most under rated minerals and so many of us lack it!
It’s a refreshingly fun, fizzy way to get the very best magnesium glycinate, vitamin C and electrolytes in a tangy orange delicious beverage! 
It’s beyond refreshing.  I was fighting the flu with this a couple of weeks ago.  I love this option for getting more magnesium in to me. It’s easy on the bowels and it’s absorbed through the intestinal walls.  Magnsium Glycinate is the best Mg on the market and convenient for on the go as it comes in little packets.   Read more about this fascinating drink on
