Coach Bernard’s Sugar-free cough mixture


orange petaled flowers in clear glass pitcher with water on brown table close up photography

4 Tablespoon water
1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger OR 1/2 Tablespoon ground ginger
2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 clove garlic, grated (optional)
4 Tablespoon raw honey

I place all ingredients into my Nutribullet (Any blender will work) for about 20 seconds
We normally keep it for about 3 days in a refrigerator, the mixture does seem to stay nice and fresh.
Take 2-3 spoonfuls every 2-4 hours or as needed.

It can tend to have a drying feeling/sensation in the throat, so see what works best for you and adjust dosage to test.


If your cough doesn’t ease off, seek medical advice (GP or Pharmacy)

What to eat when going away on holiday

Herbalife’s Top Ten Tips for Healthy Holidays


Herbalife (NYSE:HLF), a global nutrition company, is reminding everyone across the country that winter office parties and family gatherings don’t have to turn into extra pounds this holiday season.

According to Samantha Clayton, Herbalife’s director of worldwide fitness and education, it’s all about minimizing impact. “No matter where you are on your personal wellness journey, think twice before over-indulging during the next few weeks.

My advice is to, at the very least, try to break even and maintain your current body weight this holiday season. It’s amazing how easily you can gain a lot of weight in such a short amount of time, and although weight gain is as easy as consuming a few too many pieces of pie, taking off those pounds come January is a much harder task.”
To keep those calories from creeping on this holiday season, Herbalife is sharing these top 10 tips:

1. No savings: Don’t cut down or starve all day to enjoy the party at night. Skipping your breakfast and lunch is not a good way to avoid weight gain. There are many reasons why this is not a good tactic; a drop in blood sugar, lack of energy and lack of concentration are just a few of the downfalls of the “starve and binge” technique. Chances are, if you wait all day to enjoy the party foods, you will consume twice the amount because you will be so hungry.

2. Snacks: Have a healthy protein-rich snack before you head out to a holiday party. Filling yourself up on healthy snacks that contain protein will keep you full and stop you from having that extra cupcake.

3. Move around: Use holiday parties as an opportunity to socialize with your friends. Keep walking around and don’t park next to the chips and dips. Walking counts as exercise so the more you move the better.

4. Dance: Let loose and dance off the party calories; the extra bonus is that the more time you spend dancing the less time you will spend eating.

5. Routine: Don’t skip your workouts. The best thing you can do is keep your exercise routine intact. We all know holiday diets can go awry, but if you can at least keep your workouts going it will help.

6. Watch your drinks: Try to avoid drinking too many sweet drinks. It’s amazing how many calories can be hiding in a simple holiday punch (or eggnog). Staying hydrated with water helps.

7. Maximize your time with quick fix workouts: If time is tight try to do a quick 10-minute routine in the morning and another 10 minutes before you go to bed. Simple exercises performed in an interval style will help burn some calories and keep you
toned over the holidays.

8. Step away from the computer: Sitting in front of your computer screen looking for that bargain may cost you in the long
run. Stay active this holiday season by walking around the shops and carrying bags or boxes doubles up as a workout.

9. Make every minute count: Think active all holiday season. Take the stairs. Park in the furthest spot from the store. Get
outside and go for a walk. The more active you are the fewer pounds you will gain.

10. Get started today: Don’t wait until January 1st to start your exercise plan, start today. The sooner you get your body into a
positive active and healthy routine the better chance you have of reaching your personal health goals.

love cheese ?

Loads of people think they love cheese but actually, it’s not quite the case.

If you were given a low dose of methadone, which is used to get people off heroin then you would not think cheese tastes good, but why is this?
Cheese has a protein in it, and a lot of this protein called casein. When the cheese mixes with your saliva it becomes casomorphine which is a type of morphine. Morphine makes you feel calm and relaxed, like all opiates.

So really, it’s not the cheese you love, it’s the morphine.
