Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

eliminate sugar

If you’ve ever tried to eliminate sugar from your diet, you know how hard it can be – especially when the sugar craving strikes. However, there are foods you can eat to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Coconut oil helps you feel satisfied for longer by slowing down the release of glucose into your blood. Zinc deficiency can lead to intense sugar cravings. So, add poppy seeds which are rich in the mineral zinc to your diet. Also, use lots of garlic as it keeps cravings at bay by distracting your palate.

Here’s a wrap up of  what you missed this week at Life Retreat. Enjoy your weekend!

Four Tips To Ward Off Traveler’s Earache

In-flight earache

Flying causes earache especially if you suffer from sinus troubles or have a cold or allergies.
