IMPORTANT FOOD: Myths about health that you would like to deny forever …
That saturated fat is bad. It is not. Stay away from toxic vegetable oils and embrace the saturated fat that we are naturally destined to eat. That the juices are healthy. If you look at the average sugar in a fruit juice, you will see that there are about 5 to 20 teaspoons per serving! That is crazy! No, fruit juice or its sugary, smoothie counterparts does not pass to my lips! Choose vegetable-based vegetables and opt for a vegetable-based shake. Or better yet, simply choose a low-sugar fermented drink! You need to use an antibacterial hand cleaner and hand sanitizer as something that happens every day. Of course, there have been occasions when I have been grateful for the hand sanitizer in case of emergency (hello festivals!), But as an everyday thing, just use soap and water for hand hygiene and let the bacteria live . They are mostly good for us when we are in balance!
