weekly roundup Chlorella

Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

There’s a potent green algae that’s not only “nature’s multivitamin” but also a super food – Chlorella. If you haven’t tried it, then it’s time you did. It’s a great source of plant-based protein and contains minerals, vitamins and other important nutrients including magnesium and iron. 


Oh my, I’m going grey! That was me this morning as I brushed my hair. I’ve gone from one strand, right up to… a couple. And no, I’m not wiser. “They say” healthy hair is one of the biggest signs of good health. I know that grey hair is in fact a lack of pigmentation and melanin, so I need to add a few foods to my diet. I’m taking about chickpeas, lentils and spirulina.

If you missed out on what happened here at Life Retreat this week. Here’s a chance for you to catch up.

Have a great weekend.


Have you been experiencing stomach or chest pains lately? Before you panic, check your pants. They may be too tight.

Minor abdominal and chest pains result from wearing pants that are 3 inches too small in the waist. The name “Tight Pants Syndrome” may sound amusing, but the abdominal pressure could lead to a hiatal hernia. This is a condition in which part of the stomach pushes up into the chest.

So if you’ve gained a little weight, wear loose, comfortable clothing until you can fit your favorite clothes again. Here’s a quick round up of what you missed here at Life Retreat in the past week.

Have a awesome weekend!

Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

The weekend is finally here. And I’m so happy I stuck to healthy eating habits this past week. Smoothies, gym and light dinners. But it’s Friday and I feel like letting loose. After all, “all work and no play” right? Wrong.

It’s time for change. No drinks. No good food. I stop this break-the-rules cycle this weekend. This week has been about detox and if you missed out, then here’s your chance to catch up.


“Stand up straight!” “You’re slumping again!”

We all heard this when we were younger. And we didn’t give Mom’s nagging much thought. But now that we’re older and wiser, and our backs are achy and tired, we could be ready to listen to some good advice. Sitting and standing properly helps more than just your looks. Good posture strengthens your bones, muscles and ligaments. It also helps you stay healthy most of your life. Starting today, I’ll practice good standing posture and I’ll sit like a queen.

Here’s a quick round up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Have a great weekend!
